Gite | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
We have two Gites on opposite sides of a pretty courtyard. They are named after our Grandchildren and just like them they have completely different personalities. If you would like to view them both then our second advert is 2 Gites and a Hot Tub (2). Also if you would like to rent both Gites we can offer a discount.
The first Gite is Joshua which is a newly converted studio gite that once housed our cider press.It is now equipped to a high standard to provide the perfect base for a truly restful break.
It comes with a corner kitchen which is well equipped with a full gas cooker, fridge, microwave and all necessary equipment to cook a three course meal and of course the essential corkscrew and bottle opener..
There is a dining area and a seating area with a comfortable settee .There is an English satellite TV with built in DVD player and a CD player. There is a selection of DVDs and CDs and more can be borrowed from our large selection.
Through an archway there is the double en-suite bedroom with fitted wardrobe. The en-suite shower room also has a heated towel rail and a washing machine. For those who feel the need there is also an iron and ironing board!
Outside there is an awning attached to Joshua which can be unwound to give shade over the outside eating area. The slate courtyard also has its own BBQ, marble topped table and sun loungers.
The area surrounding the Gites offer wonderful opportunities for walks and cycling. Cycles are available for hire in the local area. Also it is possible to hire canoes, kayaks and Pedalos on Lac de Guerledan.

The properties have their own individual characteristics and each also has its own private seating and BBQ area. The gites also share a wonderful Hot Tub! The Hot Tub actually seats 8 so there is lots of space. The Hot tub is kept at a constant 99 degrees. Its great for soaking those tired limbs or just for relaxing with a glass of wine. Each gite has plastic dinking glasses for use in the Hot tub. Especially wonderful is sitting in the Hot tub at night and watching the stars, with no light pollution it is an amazing experience.
Each gite has sun loungers as well as outside furniture. Joshua Gite is equipped with a wall mounted sun awning that can be used to provide shade during the hot summer afternoons.

The Brittany region
Brittany is famous for its wealth of stunning scenery, mild climate and amazing seafood. As the gites are within a few miles of the Lac de Guerledan which is probably the largest lake in Brittany we are also able to offer endless walks, safe cycle paths and beautiful views. The wildlife here is excellent. red squirrels, wild boar, buzzards, woodpeckers and kingfishers abound.
What attracts many people are the quiet roads here in Brittany whether you prefer the rambling roads through the typical French villages or the excellent main trunk roads that are fast and efficient you will rarely find a queue or a traffic jam or a delay. Just relaxing drives to the north or south coast which are both about 4o miles from the gites. There are chateaus and markets in most towns. The markets are very well supported by the local residents and visitors alike and sell all you need to cook a beautiful fresh meal here in Brittany..
St Aignan, Morbihan
St Aignan is a "Ville Fleuri" with a very beautiful church and has its own Electricity Museum. Flowing through the village is the River Blavet and Nantes Brest Canal. Perfect for walking, cycling and fishing.There is a shop in St Aignan and creperie and in Mur de Bretagne, 4 kms away, there is a supermarket, petrol station, banks and a selection of shops and restaurants. It also has a lively evening market every Friday during the summer months often with traditional Breton music and dance.
All leisure activities are catered for locally. Lac de Guerledan has small beaches dotted around it, pedalos and speed boats are available for hire on the lake or take a more leisurely cruise on one of the tour boats. Around the Lake and the surrounding areas there are walks and cycle tracks of varying degrees of difficulty. Quad bikes can also be hired. Just 10kms from the Gites is the Abbey of Bon Repos famous for its Son et Lumiere which takes place in August every year using the magnificant Abbey as a back cloth.
