About the home
This is a great location for a family holiday. The house provides comfortable spacious living and outside is a very large garden for all sorts of activities and quiet corners to relax. The 12 x 6 m heated pool is securely fenced for the safety of young children.

The cottage was once part of the Manor house and has many original features such as beams and a magnificent stone fireplace. There is a comfortable lounge and spacious master bedroom above.
The kitchen, bathroom and two smaller double bedrooms are a modern conversion of a much humbler structure, the cow byre, built alongside the house. Nevertheless, the original beams, posts and roof structures have been retained. The kitchen is furnished as a breakfast room with a larger dining table located in the lounge. The bathroom has a shower cubicle (no bath) as well as the usual facilities.
The bedrooms are light and airy; the larger, equipped with two single beds, has a large lucarne window facing the front drive and garden whilst the other, with bunk beds, has a velux window overlooking the cherry orchard. A washing machine is available for guest use in the adjacent utility room. A Satellite TV/Video/DVD are provided.

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.

We had a lovely holiday at Bodion. The house was well equipped and full of character. The garden was lovely and pool was vital for the children who were in it everyday. The games room was also very popular! Bodion is perfectly situated for visiting lots of charming places eg Josselin, Concarneau, Vannes and the beaches at Carnac. Pontivy is good for shopping with markets, supermarkets and a good cycle shop! We recommend St Nicholas des Eaux for cycling, kayaking, lovely walks and creperie - only 10 mins away.
Al and Marion were always helpful but not intrusive. All in all a relaxing, and fun holiday.
