About this location
The Brittany region
Engaging scenery, charming villages, warm people…
Fine foods and good wine, a peaceful rural setting, relaxing outdoor pursuits and many beautiful beaches.
The Morbihan region of southern Brittany can supply all of this... and more.
This quiet fishing and farming region of France is blessed with a beautiful and varied coastline and an interior of lush farmland, woods and moors to delight the country lovers.
The native Breton people, of Celtic descent appreciate their visitors and provide a warm welcome. Their local 'Pardons' and 'Fetes', regional costumes, music, dances, legends and language maintained by the Bretons are a large part of the area's unique charm.
Brittany 's restaurants and bistros supply some of the best of French provincial cooking, very reasonably priced and in generous proportions.
You can't leave without sampling its 'fruits de mer', crepes and cider.
Brittany 's rolling hills, dense forests and lazy rivers, offer a variety of activities; from walking, riding and cycling to fishing and canoeing.
The rich architectural and archaeological heritage provide for excellent one-day tours; the fascinating towns of Pontivy, Josselin, Dinan and Vannes are full of historical interest. Then, of course, there are the megaliths, churches and for the stout-hearted there's the 'quest for the Holy Grail' and the Arthurian legend.
To the south, a short traffic-free drive away, is the beautiful Golfe du Morbihan, a yachtsman's paradise, with all manner of water-sports and numerous little islands to visit on the regular ferries.
Or just relax in the sunshine on an endless choice of beautiful beaches. Additionally the large lakes at Guerledan and Priziac offer excellent facilities for swimming, boating and sunbathing.
Each cottage has details of local amenities and resorts to help you plan your holiday.
Morbihan offers a wealth of activities all within 45 minutes of the cottages.
Pontivy was chosen by Napoleon as a garrison town and renamed Napoleonville for a while. It is a charming country town on the River Blavet with many beautiful half-timbered, corbelled and turreted houses, cobbled streets and attractive shops in the old quarter around the 16th century church of Notre Dame de la Joie.
The 15th century Castle of the Dukes of Rohan with its two remaining towers is well-worth a visit. There is a good variety of restaurants, cafes, interesting shops and good supermarkets. Pontivy has an open-air swimming pool. Market day is Monday.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review! I know that you are busy so especially appreciate your time and most thoughtful comments. It really does mean a lot to us to know that you were all very comfortable at Manoir de Bodion and enjoyed the pool and garden.
We can't wait to welcome you all back again in the not too distant future. It will be lovely to see how the children have grown... they were all delightful... adults too of course.

"Brilliant holiday and Accomodation"
We stayed for a week booking all three houses. The accomodation was perfect, each house has some lovely features and the grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The Games room and swimming pool was great and the children were happy to stay at the accomodation every day as they had so much to do. We paid for a meal to be cooked on the first night and the food was lovely and well worth the money.
Thankyou for a lovely week
