The Brittany region

Just a cross the English Channel and increasingly accessible, there is another world, full of secret delights. Its pleasures are a constant temptation to the senses, a world full of space, light and colour to be enjoyed in haste or at leisure and made memorable by itís contrasts.

Morbihan is a Breton word and means little sea, it has many white sandy beaches, you could easily spend two weeks going to a different beach everyday. and quaint fishing villages dot the coastline of the Morbihan gulf, this wonderful ëLittle Seaí of Brittany is a maze of sandbanks and green islands, flooded twice a day by the Atlantic.

Its shores host the historic towns of Vannes and Auray, the standing stones at Carnac and the long Quiberon Peninsular with its dramatic Cote Savage. This great tidal gulf, crammed with islands is a paradise waiting to be explored.

Coastal resorts are thirty minutes drive and include: Carnac, Erdeven and Le Pouldu, all have beautiful white sandy beaches and remain mostly un-crowded. A wide range of sport is available from tennis to golf to horse riding to surfing. Chateaus, magnificent gardens, forests, lakes and birdlife are all in abundance in this delightfully mild climate. Here in the Gulf of Morbihan there truly is something for everyone, each of our holiday cottages has a guest information book that gives comprehensive information on all of the above and more.


Our nearest town, Pluvigner, is two miles south of La Metairie. There you will find a wide range of traditional shops, around the market square there are a number of cafes, bars and banks and newsagents. You will also find high quality restaurants and creperies all within easy reach. There are doctor and dentist services in Pluvigner and Camors. The nearest hospital is in Auray a fifteen minute drive

However you like to spend you day, be it an energetic sport or leisurely pastime, come and visit us here in Brittany at La Metairie...

"Nice accommodation, excellent location and on-site facilities"

My wife and I together with our (almost) 3yr old daughter stayed in Orchard Cottage in early July (2014). The cottage is a good size and well thought out. Any minor issues were resolved in minutes (when I say minor I mean 'can we have an extra tea towel'!) and the owners (and children) are nice helpful people.

With young children it is crucial that your accommodation is located close to activities and preferably has entertainment on site, this small gite development ticks both boxes.

I would note that the swimming pool in particular was really warm, clean, safe and well supplied with toys/floats etc.

Highly recommended.

"Perfect spot for young children"

The cottages and gardens were so pretty with open views of the countryside. Our 1 year old loved crawling around on the lawns, playing on the play equipment and having a good explore. The heated swimming pool was a real bonus, much bigger and deeper than I'd expected, so we could all enjoy it. Plenty of local villages nearby to get shopping and an easy drive down to the beaches around Carnac and plenty of other visitor spots. The accomodation was very homely and just right for the 3 of us. Nice space to sit outside and enjoy a bbq. Lots of equipment for the baby - highchair, cot, stairgate, baby bath supports and books and toys - which all made life so much easier.

Thank you for the lovely review, we loved having you stay with us and hope to see you again.

Best Wishes

"Busy children, happy parents - a haven which is home from home"

Our seventh stay at La Metairie - and we're as happy as ever to be there. Orchard Cottage is comfortable, clean, well equipped and perfect for a family holiday. There's a lovely new bed in the master bedroom, and enough space for all the family. Great kitchen, fab lounge and to have a bath and a shower is a must with small children. Little touches make this place ideal for your holiday - from providing a bath mat to books, games and jigsaws to keep the little ones occupied on the rare rainy days. Outside is a huge playground for the kids, and a lovely spot for a barbecue at the end of the day. The peace and quiet you get from the surrounding fields is hard to beat. But it's nice that you're only a few minutes' drive to the big town also. We will be back next year!

Thank you for the lovely review, can't wait to see you all again next year.

Best wishes

"Great holiday in a great location"

It was my first time visiting Brittany and I loved my holiday. La Metarie is a great place to stay. The house I stayed in was beautiful, very clean and fully equipped. I also had access to a fabulous pool, tables, chairs, a barbecue... I did go out for a few activities nearby (adventure forest, beautiful beaches and towns such as Saint-Goustan), but honestly, La Metarie is such a great place I could have spent my entire holiday there. :)

"Lovely Gite for families with young children"

We stayed at Orchard cottage for two weeks in June and had the most lovely time.

The cottage itself has everything you and your children need and the garden is simply amazing. The kids are able to play on everything - the trampoline being a favourite! The heated pool is also perfect for days when you're not at one of the many lovely beaches in and around Carnac.

Joanne and Adrian are the perfect hosts - attentive but also giving you the space you need.

We stayed two weeks and had a great time - definitely one of the best places we have stayed in France.

Thank you so much Stephen for your lovely review, we loved having you and hope you visit us again.

"Child and parent heaven in beautiful surroundings, with excellent facilities."

There's a good reason why we return to this gem of a place - both us and the children can relax in the knowledge that there's so much for them to do here, and that we can let them run free in safe surroundings.

Joanne, Adrian and the children are so welcoming and helpful - nothing's too much of a bother for them. They can recommend places to visit, places to eat, which beaches are best to visit at different times of the year, and so much more - even weather updates!

There's the pool - warm even on the coldest of spring/summer days, the play hut with its pool table and table football, the HUGE trampoline!, the toddler area is superb, and there are so many climbing frames and swings to keep everyone entertained (even mischeavous adults!)

But as a parent of two small children (5 and 3), Orchard cottage itself is a blessing, because it has everything that a busy family on holiday would ever need. A washing machine (a must!), dishwasher (brill - we're on holiday, after all!), a bath!! (seriously, a shower is useless with small children) and bath-mat, highchair, stairgate, books, toys, DVD player, Sky TV, downstairs toilet as well as the upstairs bathroom, and much, much more.

We've already booked next year's visit, and have, and would, highly recommend La Metairie to anybody - with children, teenagers, or even a couple on their own. C'est tres bon!

"Great Gites with perfect garden for children"

Orchard cottage was just right for us and our two young children. The accommodation is clean, well equipped and comfortable. The garden is great for playing with swings, toys, trampoline and so on, perfect to let the children run wild. Our two liked the playhouse and the tire swing best! The pool is clean, safe and well maintained and being heated makes it useable even on the less sunny days. Joanne and her family are welcoming hosts with lots of advice on things to see and do in the area.

"A little Gem!"

This is a great set of gites just outside pluvinger (2.5km.) About 30-40 mins to lovely beaches and a great base for other local activities and sight seeing. Gites are comfortable, clean and well equipped. They are positioned so they each afford privacy but would also be excellent for a group of families wishing to stay together. The location is incredibly safe and child friendly and our kids spent hours playing in the pool and garden. This was one of the first places we've been to where we could relax as adults knowing the children were happy and safe. Joanne and Adrian were very helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this little gem of a place!

"Beautiful location, great amenties, perfect family holiday."

We arrived at Lorient airport (approx 40 mins by car) and arrived at La Metarie in glorious sunshine. We spent the first few days chilling out by the pool, grocery shopping at Pluvigner and bar-b-queing in the evenings. The kids were busy with the outdoor activities and made friends immediately with other children staying on the property. Weather was great, so during the day we explored the beaches of the penninsula, went to the markets at Carnac and Hennebont and took the children to the adventure forest and the port of St. Goustan. We usually rolled home mid to late afternoon in time for a swim and spent the evenings sitting outside watching the children play and the sun going down. The owners, Joanne and Adrian, who live onsite, were warm, welcoming and helpful. Altogether a great family holiday.

"Excellent facilities for young families in a great location"

The facilities for young children and adults alike were excellent. The location was great for getting to local towns and tourist attractions and beaches alike; you could easily fill a fortnight quite happily from here in great comfort whatever the weather
The owners were always available for questions and keen to ensure your stay was welcoming and comfortable.
Great value for money
