For summer 2015 we will have a large, heated swimming pool (14 metres x 6 metres) which is being constructed in the spring. Photos of the completed pool and prices for July and August will be updated on this site once works are finished, thus ensuring that you will have complete confidence in our accommodation and facilities.

Oak View is a converted 'grenier', or loft, above a former dairy, attached to the owner's house which is a 'manoir', or French manor house, some centuries old.

Oak View is for lovers of the countryside, peace and quiet and privacy. Situated at the end of a country road, with no passing traffic, it's very safe and tranquil... except for an abundance of birdsong in the morning and the sound of owls hooting at night. Deer pop up in the surrounding woods, along with hares, red squirrels, badgers and foxes. Wild flowers and edible mushrooms in spring, summer and autumn. Panoramic views of the stars on clear nights, unspoilt by light pollution.

Two kilometers away is Inguiniel, a small picturesque town with a bakery, bar, restaurant and mini supermarket, whilst seven kilometers takes you to Plouay with a greater range of shops and restaurants. The port city of Lorient, a boating and yachting centre, is a 25 minutes drive with its seaside neighbour, Larmor Plage, whilst there are many other Morbihan beaches within very easy reach. You will have plenty to choose from and explore.

This is an ideal centre also for walking and cycling pursuits, offering gently rolling countryside and forests, situated between the two river valleys of the Blavet and Scorffe, with all the water sports that they offer, such as boating, fishing, kayaking and canoeing. Plouay is known as the French cycling capital, frequently on the Tour de France route, and hosting a cycling 'Grand Prix' in August. Bikes can be hired locally; the roads in Brittany are largely uncrowded and very safe for cyclists. Lorient's International Celtic Festival is a major local event attracting many thousands of visitors from all over the world during early August each year, a cultural and musical feast, and there are many similar festivals show-casing Breton culture in other towns and villages in the region throughout the summer.

Further details indoors

The apartment is light, modern and airy, well-equipped and with plenty of storage throughout. The kitchen, dining area and lounge are open plan, with country views on three sides, the nearest neighbours being half a kilometer and more away. The view of a spectacular oak tree in our grounds from the huge arched window in the living room inevitably prompts a 'wow' from guests.

Furniture is solid oak or teak, with comfy leather sofa and leather chairs; modern, oak fitted kitchen with quality appliances, including separate washing machine and tumble drier, and full size dishwasher. Plenty of cooking equipment, nice crockery and cutlery, and if you need something more, just ask, we'll try to provide. Large HD TV with UK Freeview channels, DVD player, wi-fi internet; large library of DVDs and 'giga-juke' player loaded with music for a variety of tastes .

A long hallway fitted with oak wardrobes and a desk, leads to the three bedrooms and family bathroom fitted with large bath, shower over the bath, washbasin, bidet and WC. The main double bedroom has a beautifully tiled and fitted ensuite bathroom comprising a spacious shower, washbasin, bidet and WC. The second double bedroom has fitted oak furniture, including wardrobe. The third bedroom has fitted single bunk beds made from some of the original oak beams in the building: somewhat sturdy! Suitable for adults as well as children.

Good, comfortable, new mattresses, and all-cotton bedding and towels are provided.

Ceramic tiled floors with electric underfloor heating throughout. The apartment is very warm and cosy in the cooler and colder months.

Not only an apartment ... guests will have the use of a spacious games room and bar, providing a great extra recreation and relaxation area in the former dairy, immediately below the apartment. Twelve-foot long mahogany wood bar, professional (10' x 5') snooker or pool table, bar-stools, darts board and other games. There is a large screen HD satellite TV, and a Sony Gigajuke wifi hifi system loaded with thousands of tracks, plus a docking station for your own Ipod, to provide music. Very atmospheric, with stone walls and beautiful lighting. Also available exclusively for guests is a new sauna room, spacious enough for up to 6 people to use, with an attached shower room for the complete sauna experience.

Parents, particularly, may like to relax and enjoy this facility in the evenings whilst their children sleep safely in the apartment above (connected by an intercom, if need be). Young adults/teenagers also love this adult space.

Further details outdoors

Summer 2015 will see a new heated swimming pool installed: 14 metres by 6 metres. Under construction from February to April.

The buildings are set in grounds of 5 acres with lots of mature trees and lawns. There is plenty of space to walk around/play, with tables and chairs set out outside next to the bar and games room on an open paved patio area so you may relax outside with drinks and food, and soak up the sun, plus a picnic table near the splendid oak in front of the apartment.

Further details

Welcome food basket on arrival.

All linen and towels, including beach towels, are provided.

A cot, baby's high chair, baby alarm and safety gate are available for use. There is no fenced private garden area attached to the apartment if very young children need 'containing'. However, there are extensive grassed areas where children are free to play.

The owners occupy the main house, have two dogs and a cat and keep a few friendly Shetland sheep.

The Brittany region

Morbihan is the most southern of the departments of Brittany and is recognised for having the most sunshine. Situated between the towns of Plouay and Inguiniel, the property is perfectly placed for both seaside and countryside, being only 30 minutes from the coast. Excellent roads mean that most tourist destinations in Morbihan and Finistere are within an hour's drive or less. All tastes are catered for... these are just a few suggestions:

• museums and eco-museums

• churches and chapels (almost every town has an interesting one)

• châteaux, abbeys, forts (e.g. Josselin, Pontivy)

• prehistoric sites (Carnac)

• boating and fishing on sea or river or carp pond (Blavet and Scorffe rivers)

• sea cruises to nearby islands (Ile de Groix off Lorient, Belle-Ile en Mer off Vannes)

• mediaeval buildings, festivals and markets (Hennebont, Auray)

• zoos, petting farms, horse riding and nature parks

• art and exhibitions

• surf, sea and sand (Larmor Plage, Guidel, Quiberon, Concarneau)

• historic towns and cities (Vannes, Quimper)

• rambling and cycling (Plouay)

• culture and festivals (Lorient International Celtic festival in August)

• aquariums (Vannes and Brest)

• not least, Breton food specialities – seafood (mussels, oysters, etc.), crêpes

Plouay has its own tourist information centre and brochures are available at the property on all the attractions in the area.

Review 1-9 of 9

7 May 2013

5/5

"countryside peace with modern amenities"

Stayed 6 days with relatives at this clean, modern gite beautifully retrofitted in an old farm dairy. Jill, our host, was kind and helpful. We went off each day in different directions to explore Brittany, but enjoyed the comforts of the place when we were there -- a well-equipped little kitchen, modern bathrooms, comfortable beds. There were lots of movies to watch, wifi, an extensive sound system we didn't use, and a games room we did. It's off the beaten track, so not easy to find, but Jill provided good directions and the GPS helped. Two villages nearby to supply breakfast croissants and such. They have plans to add a sauna, pool, tennis courts...soon, people will come and never leave!
