Les Gites de La Touche are located in the French town of Pleudihen-sur-Rance, perfectly positioned between the centre of town and the picturesque hamlet of Mordreuc on the banks of La Rance.

3 self-contained and newly renovated cottages – La Souillarde sleeps 2-4, Le Chanvril sleeps 4 and Le Bois sleeps 4-6.

Le Chanvril - Catering for 4 people - **PLEASE NOTE - This is the booking page for Le Chanvril gîte only**

The gîtes are available on a weekly basis or minimum 3 nights depending on the time of year. For groups – family and friends, who would like to holiday together or gather for a special occasion, there is the possibility of booking all 3 gîtes, catering for 14 people in total.

Newly renovated in a 300 year old barn the gites are stylish and modern but retain features of their former life. The living area is open plan, light and welcoming. The gîtes are set in the countryside in walking distance to the village centre, Mordreuc and coastal paths. Mordreuc has a beach and little port and a local seal who can be found most days sunbathing on the beach or jetty! The gites are set in large grounds and the surroundings are tranquil and peaceful.

Le Chanvril gîte consists of;

- Well appointed kitchen featuring electric cooker, underbench oven, large fridge, dishwasher, coffee machine, microwave and toaster.

- Large dining table

- Large living area with french doors opening onto a stone courtyard

- LCD TV and DVD player, stereo system

- Wireless internet access (included)

- Off-street parking

There are 2 spacious bedrooms on the 1st floor. Like most old Breton houses the stairs are quite steep. Both bedrooms have beds that can serve as doubles or singles. There are 2 single beds in each room that can be joined to make very comfortable 160cm doubles. The gite therefore sleeps 4. A cot can be provided if requested in advance. Renting one or both of the other gîtes here at La Touche, allows several families or groups of friends (up to 14) to enjoy a perfect holiday in charming Brittany.

Le Chanvril has one well-equipped bathroom with a large shower and a separate WC.

Le Chanvril includes laundry facilities with an all in one washing machine and dryer. Heating is provided by an ecological wood burner using recycled timber pellets and an extractor system which captures and reuses the heat that is jettisoned by standard bathroom and kitchen extractor systems.

Local Area:

Pleudihen-sur-Rance is a picturesque location on the banks of a river - La Rance. A short walk of a few hundred metres and you reach the little hamlet of Mordreuc with it's port, beach and resident seal. A few hundred metres in the other direction and you are in Pleudihen. There are pretty coastal tracks meandering through the fields and along the tidal river Rance. The area has a long history and there are many sites not far away making Pleudihen-sur-Rance the perfect base to explore Brittany. Dinan is only 15mins by car and St Malo is 20mins.

The Brittany region

Brittany has long been a favourite holiday destination for many, with it's granite coastline and endless beaches, Forts, Chateaus and a large collection of historic towns the area is steeped in history and offers a variety of attractions. Alongside this, the area is famous for its seafood, cider and traditional Breton beer.

Saint Malo: Famous walled city just 15minutes away. Originally a pirate town or "Corsaires" (legitimate pirates) with plenty to keep both young and old occupied.

Dinan: Beautiful medieval walled town just 10 minutes away.

Dinard: Elegant seaside resort town founded by the British just 25 minutes away.

Mont Saint Michel: The second most visited monument in France (after the Eiffel Tour) just 40 minutes drive.

Fort La Latte: Medieval fortress/castle: 50mins

Cancale: Fishing village well known for its oysters just 25 minutes.

Rennes: Lively city of 250,000 people. The capital of Brittany - 45mins.

Fougeres: Huge medieval fortress - 1&1/2 hours

Pleudihen is close to many main routes- Caen-Brest highway and St Malo-Rennes.


Along the river Rance, Pleudihen-sur-Rance is a peaceful and tranquil place where "the plough and the Doris are a stone's throw" said Chateaubriand. The Doris is the traditional boat of the Rance which was used for cod-fishing in Newfoundland.

Enjoy the beach at Mordreuc, the hiking in the Val Hervelin or the country trails that lead to other villages and hamlets along the Rance - La Ville Ger, Le Bas Champs, La Chapelle de Mordreuc

The Rance Valley has always been known for its variety of apples and the quality of its cider. The nearby Cider Museum shows the traditional methods of cider making and you can taste (dégust) their ciders, whilst the modern and large cider production, Val de Rance, has sales from their cellar door.

"Lovely comfortable gite in superb location"

This is a fantastic gite, modern, well-equipped, spotlessly clean and with comfy beds and sofa.
We loved it's location and particularly enjoyed being able to walk into the village for bread and down to the beautiful riverside in the evening - spotting Josephine the seal was a bonus which our 11 year old loved.
There are many beaches and picnic spots within a short drive as well as historic Dinan and St Malo which both offer great shops and many cafes - very teenager friendly! Mont St Michel is within easy reach too.
Highly recommend this gite, it was perfect for our family, providing something for everyone.

"A hideaway in rural Brittany, France"

We stayed at Les Gites de La Touche-Chanvril for 8 nights in June and it was truly a home away from home with all the facilities we needed after travelling in France for three weeks. It was great to unpack and do all our laundry. The facilities are new and very good. We had thought that we would just laze around and do nothing for the week, but in fact, as we had a car we took the opportunity to visit Mont St Michel which is only a short distance away, Saint Malo, Dinan, all very near. We loved being able to walk 10 minutes down the road to the village of Pleudian for supplies; 10 minutes in the other direction is another lovely settlement with a beach and restaurant. The property is in a rural setting and is very quiet and peaceful. Kate was very helpful and provided advice and maps for our travels beyond the gate. Kate lives on site and speaks English as her first language, so she was most helpful to us non-French speakers.
