Both bedrooms are fitted with electric radiators. The shower room is fully tiled with a 90cm quadrant shower cubicle, a large wash basin and heated towel rail. Hot water for washing and showering is provided by a large-capacity immersion heater.

Outside, there is a courtyard and terrace at the front with Weber BBQ and outdoor dining furniture. At the rear, there is a large field for children to play, while parents relax on the sun-loungers that are provided and enjoy the view over open countryside. There is plenty of parking space.

Situated in a small hamlet in the commune of Plusquellec, this pretty cottage is just a mile-and-a-half outside the market town of Callac. Here, as well as the popular weekly market each Wednesday morning, you will find two supermarkets, two bakers, a post office, three banks, a butchery/charcuterie, a patisserie, a newsagent, a wine merchant, two florists and a pharmacy as well as several bars, restaurants and petrol stations and a very nice gift shop.

In common with the greater part of rural France, most shops close on Mondays, but are open throughout the rest of the week, including Sunday mornings. The supermarkets are open seven days a week (mornings only on Sundays). Callac also has its own railway station, from where the train to Guingamp connects with the TGV line between Paris and Brest. And if you fall in love with the area and decide you want a holiday home of your own, there are three estate agents to help you make the choice!

Location description from owner

The Brittany region

Brittany occupies a large peninsula in the north west of France, lying between the English Channel to the north and the Bay of Biscay to the south. It has an amazingly long and varied coastline, with its great mix of white sandy beaches suitable for swimming, attractive rocky coves and pools to explore, and dramatic cliffs and rock formations to enjoy and photograph. In the whole of France, the Breton coast is second in popularity only to the Cote d'Azur yet, despite its popularity, it remains possible to find a quiet corner to yourself, even at the height of summer.

But Brittany has much more to offer than just its coast. The inland area, the Argoat, is particularly beautiful, a land of woods and moors and of river valleys, of lush vegetation and early crops, a land of gently rolling countryside and dairy farms but one which has a backbone of granite that forms the Montagnes Noires and the Monts d'Arrée. It is a land of clear light and spectacular sunsets which, by virtue of its westerly location and adoption of Central European Time, occur much later in the evening than they do in the UK. The region is rich in history and culture. Well worth a look are the local pardons, which take place throughout the year according to the saint's day with which a particular commune is associated. Traditional fetes are a feature of Breton life, and everybody is welcome to attend, locals and holidaymakers alike. Brittany has its own languages (Gallo in the east and Breton in the west) that the locals will sometimes use when talking to each other.

Uniquely for France, Brittany's motorways are toll-free and this, combined with its ease of access from the UK, makes it an attractive proposition for the British holidaymaker's wallet. Attractive too is the Breton climate. It is warm in summer, but not so warm as to be uncomfortable, while the proximity of the Gulf stream means that, by and large, the majority of winter's excesses are avoided. Although there are one or two Breton beers, the region's main liquid product is cider - and very good it is too. The more adventurous may wish to sample Lambig, another local product, which is similar in many ways to Calvados but seems much stronger, especially the next day! The region's crops are many, including strawberries (from Plougastel) pink onions (from Roscoff) and artichokes (also from Roscoff). But above all, the lover of good food will appreciate Brittany for its fishing industry; if it's fresh fish and seafood you're after, then look no further!

Callac

Callac is at the heart of the Argoat region of Central Brittany and is therefore within striking distance of the highly contrasting Breton coastlines to the north, west and south as well as providing an ideal base for walking and cycling. The coastline offers a wide range of seashores, from small sandy or pebbly coves to sand dunes and broad sandy beaches and a wealth of inlets and harbours as well as massive Atlantic breakers bursting over defiant granite rocks.

Callac is considered the capital of the Breton Spaniel and the "Maison de l'Epagneul", a museum dedicated to the history of the breed, opened in 2007 and is located near the main square. The town also boasts its own lake (le Plan d'Eau de la Verte Vallée) which provides lovely wa

“Ein wundervolles Haus mit fantastischer Ausstattung und herzlichen Gastgebern”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2015

Wir waren auf der Suche nach einem Haus in der Bretagne, um dort mit unseren beiden Kindern (5 und 7Jahre) zwei Wochen zu verbringen. Wir sahen ein Foto von diesem Haus, lasen die Beschreibung und dachten uns "Das oder keines". Wir sind sehr froh, uns für diese Unterkunft entschieden zu haben! Das Haus ist in einem historischen Anwesen, was komplett und sehr geschickt renoviert wurde. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Hier wurde alles neu ausgestattet und nicht "altes Zeug wiederverwendet". Es ist *alles* da, was das Herz begehrt. Super und hochwertig ausgestattete Küche, Waschmaschine (Miele(!)), Geschirrspüler, Microwelle, Herd, Fernseher, DVD, BOSE Sounddock, Kamin, WLAN/WIFI, ... und alles ohne Extrakosten. Keine Extrakosten für Endreinigung oder Heizung oder Strom oder Internet. Sogar ein umfangreiches Willkommenspaket (Wasser, Wein, frische Eier etc.) ist inklusive. Doch das Beste sind die Eigentümer Val & Bryn, die wirklich herzliche und zuvorkommende Gastgeber sind - ohne jemals aufdringlich zu sein! Sie boten uns an, für uns zusätzlich noch einkaufen zu gehen, da wir an einem Sonntag Abend ankamen. Auch so waren sie jederzeit erreichbar und super freundlich. Da sie Briten sind, fiel uns die Verständigung auf Englisch sehr leicht. Allerdings sprechen beide sogar recht gut Deutsch, da sie lange in Deutschland gelebt haben. Die Lage in der zentralen Bretagne ist ebenfalls sehr gut. Man ist nah an Callac, einer schönen Kleinstadt mit guter Infrastruktur, aber trotzdem "auf dem Land". Von Callac aus kann man nicht nur alle Küstengegenden (Nord / Süd / West) relativ gut erreichen (und spontan entscheiden, wohin man abhängig vom Wetter fährt), es gibt auch in der näheren Umgebung so einiges zu entdecken (z.B. Huelgoat). Das Gästebuch, die Hausmappe als auch natürlich Val und Bryn haben da zahlreiche Tipps parat ;) Hier fühlten wir uns sehr willkommen und verbrachten wundervolle Tage!

“Fantastic gite in lovely location with amazing hosts!!”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2015

We had a splendid holiday at Le Gite Au Manoir. You simply couldn't ask for better hosts - Bryn and Val were incredibly welcoming and helpful right from the point of booking to the day we sadly left. The gite is a true "home from home" and with small children that is always desirable! We had many fun days sight seeing and beach combing and even got to watch a mini-Tour de France that travelled right past the property. Brittany is a gorgeous part of France and well worth exploring both the north and west coasts. We came home filled with crepes, beautiful wine and lovely memories. Huge thanks to Bryn and Val for their amazing hospitality and friendliness. Will recommend to all of our friends!

“Beautiful, quiet, so relaxing”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2014

We had an amazing stay ear lie in the give earlier this summer, there are no words to describe the view from the garden and it being in the centre of Brittany made it great for visiting the beautiful coastlines around. Val and Bryn were so helpful and quick to respond to any queries we had! thoroughly recommended!

“Delivers what it says on the can...........plus a lot more besides!”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2014

Conveniently situated for all the attractions of Brittany – coast, lakes, medieval castles and abbeys, markets and a host of quality restaurants. Equally well served by local facilities including an excellent “Cave” in nearby town. We did our best to explore all the possibilities during our week long stay – but failed miserably to do so! What made our visit to Brittany even more memorable was our stay at Le Gite Au Manoir. It is unquestionably of the highest quality and a real home from home. The owners have done everything possible to make the house welcoming and comfortable. The accommodation is spacious and very attractively furnished throughout. The downstairs embraces sitting, dining and kitchen facilities. The sitting area is built around extremely comfortable furniture, wood burner, SKY TV and a choice of stereo systems. The dining area accommodates 6 adults - as we proved when visited by friends! The kitchen includes hob, oven, microwave, dish washer and washing machine – plus all the crockery and utensils one could possibly need. WiFi is available throughout the house. All the equipment appeared to be new and worked well – instructions for use produced by the owners were both comprehensive and easy to follow – as were the owners recommendations on local facilities including emergencies, attractions, restaurants and nearby markets. The bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor were both spacious and extremely comfortable – with plenty of hot water as required. The entire house was furnished to an extremely high standard and in excellent taste. However, what made the Gite even more special was the welcoming by the owners and their personal attention to the detail and ensuring that we had everything we needed for an extremely pleasant and relaxing stay. We will certainly be returning and recommending the Gite to our friends.

“A lovely place to get away from it all”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2013

Le Gite Au Manoir is a really nice retreat if you simply want to get away from the hustle and bustle and unwind. The Gite is very well equipt with everything you need for a comfortable stay (though remember to take your own towels) and the owners are really welcoming - providing a much needed glass of wine after a long journey! Our two small children enjoyed running around the large lawned area to the rear of the property which provided a safe place to play. As adults, we liked lighting candles and relaxing in front of the impressive woodburner!

“Perfect Holiday”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2013

Arrived after a very long drive from Scotland to a warm welcome and to a lovely, clean, gorgeous gite in beautiful and quiet country setting. This gite is the best equipped place we have rented and cooking was such a pleasure with fresh ingredients from the local markets. The gite is well situated for travelling in all directions, the roads are blissfully quiet and after 2 weeks here we have completed de-stressed. Our little boy loved staying here too and we saw lots of wildlife, hares, a fox in the field and lots of birds. We actually miss the neighbours funny little dog who greeted us back every day after our day trips! We would recommend trips to Le Mont St Michel, Dinan, Josselin, Chateau De Roche Jagu, Healgoat and the Granite Rose Coast and on a rainy day Oceanopolis. I'm sure we'll be back.

“Lovely cosy gite in beautiful countryside”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2013

Despite the weather being far from pleasant we had a great stay in this lovely gite. It has everything one would wish for , very well equipped indeed and in easy driving distance of many points of interest in Brittany. Our hosts Bryn and Val made us most welcome and were there with helpful advice if needed. Bryn has composed a very useful guide to the area which we followed and found markets and restaurants he recommended to be just what we were looking for. The countryside surrounding us is truly magnificent ,undulating with many lakes forests and rivers and driving was a pleasure on very quiet roads. I have no hesitation in giving the highest recommendation to this venue and indeed will be returning one day for sure hopefully in better weather. The wood burner was quite the best I have experienced so even when Mother Nature was doing her worst we were soon cosy and with a glass of wine well able to shrug it off. Very nice place, very nice people. Enjoy.

“Perfect Place,Perfect Hosts”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2013

Val and Bryn are all you could wish for as hosts, nothing was too much trouble and even provided a welcome glass or two of wine on our belated arrival. The gite itself has everything you could need for a home from home holiday including an endless supply of wood for the fabulous woodburner. It was comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location is very quiet and peaceful on the outskirts of the town but close enough to easily get to the shops and supermarkets and is perfectly placed for exploring all areas of Brittany including the beautiful Rose Granite Coast, Pont Aven and Concaneau. A trip to the Crozon area and spectacular Pen Hir is a must. I can't think of anything negitive I could say so I'm not even going to try, was wonderful from begining to end.

“Perfect”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2012

Such a beautiful tranquil spot to escape from the pressures of life. Cosy log fires in the evening, sitting outside for breakfast in the sun. The Gite is absolutely lovely. We were sure the bed was enchanted as we have never slept so well and had enormous trouble getting up in the morning, only those fabulous croissants were beckoning from Ty Coz in Callac Village. Val and Bryn are just lovely - great advice on hand when needed but we felt totally private in our Gite and in the Garden. Bryn's guidebook should win a medal - he thought of everything. Go and see the Granite Rose Coast - the prettiest beaches and almost deserted, Mael Carhaix was a great find and on a sunny day you can spend hours walking around the lake and gardens. On a clear night the stars are just the most incredible sight - something I shall never forget. Huelgoat was a really interesting day out, the village is pretty but those giant boulders were amazing!! If you are looking for peace and quiet, look no further. We loved it - wanna go back!!

“Beautiful well equipped gite, ideal location to explore, home from home”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2012

Val and Bryn were great hosts, we visited in summer, plenty of space for children to play and explore.. Coasts are all accessible, inland lake with facilities just up the road. Plenty of day trips to entertain the children. Really well equipped, big comfy beds, wi-fi, CBBC for the children. We would recommend this for families with 2 children, or 2 plus a travel cot, but equally so it would be great as a couple. Hosts were helpful before, during and after visit (posting on the bits our boys had left behind), would thoroughly recommend this gite 5*.
