There are many secluded sandy beaches within easy reach. The area is ideal for cycling and we have a stock of 10 bikes which are available for use.

The floors are of ceramic tiles whilst the ceilings are constructed of wood beams which have been left exposed throughout. Rooms on the ground floor have open fireplaces or wood burning fires, although electric heating is also available for use outside the summer months. The gite has been equipped particularly to suit the needs of families with young children.


The gite is situated in a quiet hamlet just a few miles from the very attractive small town of Josselin ( see picture below) famous for its imposing chateau close by the river. In the nearby village you will find the local baker, butcher, bars, post office, restaurant, and church. In Josselin there are supermarkets, branches of leading banks, shops, and an excellent selection of restaurants and bars. There is also a large traditional market in the town most Saturday mornings throughout the year.

The Morbihan area is one of rolling wooded countryside rich in flora and fauna including red squirrels. There are chateaux to visit and the historic walled city of Vannes is a 20 minute drive away. There are beautiful beaches at Carnac and along the Quiberon Peninsula within easy reach as is the Presqu'ile de Rhys and other attractive beaches at Sarzeau, Damgan, and St. Gildas.
