The Brittany / Morbihan 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.

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.
