The Coach House, a fabulous conversion sleeps 8+ in an unusual and exciting configuration. The main entrance is through a beautiful arched doorway into the lounge, a cool, stone-flagged area, open to the roof beams and looking out onto an enclosed lawn, ideal for toddlers. . The lounge is comfortably furnished with 2 settees and has Freeview TV and DVD. To the rear of the lounge are 2 twin bedrooms and a shared shower room. A beautiful hand-crafted staircase leads to the upper storey mezzanine overlooking the lounge. To the front of this mezzanine there is a spacious dining/kitchen area, which opens out onto a deck overlooking the garden and swimming pool.

To the rear of the dining room is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. A twin-bedded garret is accessed by a ladder from the dining area for the more adventurous and has 2 full-sized futon beds.

A washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, Satellite TV/Video /DVD are provided.

It provides spacious and comfortable accommodation for a family or group holiday and can be rented with Bishop's Well and Chained Heart.

Each cottage has a private BBQ area and there is plenty of space in the garden for boisterous ball games and quiet relaxation.

As well as the 12 x 6 m heated pool there is a games room,swings and slide and a grassed badminton/volleyball court.

Although many of our guests have spent much of their holiday relaxing in the garden, Bodion is a perfect base from which to enjoy the many attractions which Morbihan offers; the peace and charm of the Blavet Valley with its sleepy villages and historic buildings, the south coast (45mins) with its beaches and water sports, the idyllic islets in the inland sea of the Golfe du Morbihan, walks in the ancient woods of Lac du Guerledan

For local amenities Bodion is approximately 15 mins from the historic town of Pontivy where you will find supermarkets, restaurants and shops. Plumeliau, a 5 minute drive, is our local village; a friendly place to buy bread and croissants and fresh oysters every Sunday morning. St Nicholas des Eaux (15 mins), a charming village on the Blavet River, offers two restaurants, creperies and bars as well as river cruises and kayaking.

The children will love tree climbing at the Adventure Forest near Camors

These, with the chateaux, museums, restaurants and a steady passage of pardons, fetes and fest noz, will, we think, ensure a varied and enjoyable holiday for all the family.

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.

Cycling for all stages from the gentle towpaths beside the Blavet river, through quiet country lanes and villages to the more exacting marked trails. Bicycles are available to hire locally.

Fishing; all types of angling is catered for and daily or weekly permits are available.

Golf. There is the 9-hole course at Bieuzy les Eaux and the 18 hole courses nearVannes , Lorient and Auray. Vi.

Gokarting in Plumeliau , Auray and Lanester near Lorient.

Horse riding stables can be found near Bieuzy les Eaux, Camors, Pontivy

A skateboarding park can be found in Hennebont

Tree climbing in the adventure forest at Camors is a lot of fun for the fit and energetic.

Watersports include canoeing on rivers, water skiing on inland lakes at Guerledan and Ploermel and sailing, surfing and windsurfing on the coast.

Historic towns such as Pontivy, Auray Vannes Josselin and Quimper have retained much of their medieval character and are well worth a visit.

Markets for fresh produce and local crafts are found each day of the week in local towns. Cottages will have details of specific days.

Try also the craft village of La Gacilly and Pont Scorff.

The list can go on… beaches; rocky coves; museums; zoos; working museums; restored villages like Poul Fetan; chateaux; pardons; fetes…

"Brilliant! we had a lovely time!"

The house was perfect for 2 families with 3 toddlers, the grounds were really well kept and the facilities were excellent. Marion and Al were lovely to us and they even lent us a paddling pool for the kids. They totally make the place.There was no need to go out - we had everything on our doorstep, the kids enjoyed themselves a lot as it's brilliant for toddlers. The only negative is that we didn't stay for long enough, we could have easily stayed for another week. We are certainly planning on returning soon. Thanks to Marion and Al for a lovely week.

"Idllyic spot"

This was our third time in one of the owner's properties and our experience has just got better and better. The owners live on site and could not be more helpful and friendly. The property is set in several acres of lush, secluded gardens which is perfect for children of all ages and is kept beautifully by the owners. The pool is fenced off, giving peace of mind for those with young children and cleaned daily. From the gardens you can see for miles across beautiful countryside,but towns and villages are within easy reach.

The Coach House has been exceptionally well and tastefully restored, with wonderful high ceilings. It's cosy on cooler days and with its flagstone floor, lovely and cool in warmer weather (which we've always had when visiting in August). There is everything you could possibly need in terms of utensils/equipment in the cottage and there is a lovely decking area leading straight out from the kitchen, which looks over the gardens. The nearest village to the cottage is not far, but I would say that a car is essential. Pontivy, the nearest large town, has numerous shops, big supermarkets and restaurants, with something for everyone, from good quality local restaurants and bakeries to McDonald's. We have loved exploring the area, but were loathe to leave the cottage sometimes, as we found it so relaxing and peaceful. We have found the location perfect for our family's needs and would have no hesitation in recommending the cottage to families with children of all ages.
