Location description from manager

The Brittany region

The "County town" Vannes is an extremely attractive and well preserved medieval town. In our view, a must visit place, there are beautiful gardens in summer in front of the old city walls. Half timbered houses overhang the cobbled streets; cafes, creperies, bars, restaurants, great shops and plenty of charm make a visit to Vannes an unforgettable experience.

Visit Auray with its quaint cobbled streets, excellent shops, bars, restaurants and picturesque harbour area surrounded by half timbered houses. Market Day is lovely here.

The famous Megalithic stones at Carnac run for miles and are better than Stonehenge! We highly recommend a visit as they are said to be one of the most important sites in the Ancient World.

Carnac also has a huge sandy beach with jumping/diving platforms a short swim from the beach. It also has many shops, restaurants and is right next to the Trinite sur Mer harbour where there are lots of beautiful yachts, more restaurants and shops.

The Quiberon Peninsula is a good excursion, drive down the wild "Cote Sauvage" on the Atlantic side then return and relax beside the calmer waters of Quiberon and its beach on the leeward side. This can be incorporated with a day at Carnac and its beach (also sheltered by the Quiberon peninsula).

Pont Aven is a pretty riverside town famed as the home of Gaughin where he was visited by artists of the Impressionist era. There is a museum of paintings by Gaughin and others as well as numerous art shops and studios selling all manner of paintings.

Other historic towns worth visiting are Quimper with its cathedral in the west and Pontivy to the north - the central town on the Nantes Brest canal built by Napolean, hence the town's original name Napoleanville. There are many chateaux to visit - Pontivy and Josselin to name but two.

As well as the kayak hire detailed in the "On the Doorstep" pages, boat trips can also be taken on the River Blavet upstream at the pretty town of St Nicholas des Eaux and also on the Golfe du Morbihan near Vannes. It is a huge bay nearly cut off from the open ocean. There are hundreds of small islands and is a very popular place for boat trips and sailing.

Pont Scorff Zoo only about 20 minutes away is fun for all the family - even teenagers (my two enjoyed it). The Penguin feeding is a highlight and many of our visitors have also commented on how enjoyable it was.

There are 5 golf courses within 45 minutes' drive. The nearest being less than 30 minutes away. The golf courses in France are very well prepared and not as busy as the UK.

We are in the Department (County) of Morbihan, so we are near the south coast but central between the west and east of Brittany. The N165 dual carriage way runs close to the southern coast so most of the towns, beaches and places of interest in Southern Brittany are accessible within an hour's drive from La Garenne.

La Garenne

There are several sandy beaches 20-30 minutes by car from La Garenne ranging from the vast sweeping sands of Guidel in the west (see photo gallery) to Lamour Plage, Port Louis, Etel, Erderven and a little further, the famous and popular Carnac beach to the south (see photo gallery).

There are wonderful walks and cycle rides along the scenic towpath beside the River Blavet with the occasional little bar, café or restaurant dotted every few kilometres in each direction to stop at for refreshments. In fact, there is an authentic Breton bar and restaurant just 5-10 minutes' walk beside the river from La Garenne so when in France why not do as the French do and have your main meal at lunchtime and simply amble back along the scenic towpath in the afternoon.

Languidic is the nearest town, about a 5 minute drive away. It has two fabulous patisseries, a supermarket, market day, central square with huge church and lots of shops all around the square.

Hennebont is a larger town with a great market held on Thursday mornings and is around 10 minutes' drive. There are also some interesting old battlements to explore and another magnificent church. Every town, small or large, has a different market day so there is one every day of the week. We have a list of all the days and towns in the housebook at La Garenne.

Restaurants: Brittany is famous for its seafood and crepes and there are many good restaurants in the region, details of our favourites ranging from a simple pizzeria to the Michelin star Chateau de Locguenole can be found in the cottage housebooks.

Poul Fetan is a magnificently restored medieval village "museum" just 10 to 15 minutes' drive from La Garenne. In summer they dress in period costume and there are demonstrations of arts and crafts from a bygone era.

Cycling: The towpath beside the river is fabulous for cycling. No hills, no cars and just the occasional other cyclist or walker and an ever changing landscape as the river meanders through glorious countryside. Take your own bikes or hire them from the bike shop at nearby Lochrist. Their bikes are superb, reasonably priced and they even deliver to and collect from La Garenne. Helmets, children's bikes, baby chairs etc are all supplied.

Kayaking: Have a fun filled couple of hours hiring kayaks at the French National Kayaking Centre just a few minutes downstream from La Garenne. It's well priced, well organised, has a great slalom course and is safe for both adults and children. There are both a Pizzeria and Creperie opposite.

Fishing: The River Blavet teems with fish and we even have several families of otters who live on the riverbanks and can sometimes be seen early in the mornings on this stretch of the river.

Rambling, Tennis and Horse Riding are all available close by. Walk the Blavet valley, play tennis in Languidic or even have a go at Western Riding at Hennebont! All the details are in the cottages.

“An idillic place”

Reviewed 15 Jan 2016

We stayed at Le Pressoir back in June 2015 and what an idillic place !!! Wonderful souvenirs. The 3 cottages are absolutely gorgeous, and the whole area is immaculate. There is absolutely everything you could need in the cottage including baby equipment like cot (very comfy) and high chair. The swimming pool is amazing, nice warm and clean with beautiful views. Loads of space to play games in the garden and best of all you've got direct access to a beautiful walk by the river (gate at bottom of the garden). Perfectly placed with loads to visit very close by and a lovely village just 5 mins drive for that all important fresh croissants in the morning. All in all a magical place.

“Stunning its well worth a visit!”

“Peaceful, relaxing and slightly magical”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2011

I have brought my family to La Garenne for the last 5 years for a weeks holiday in early June. Even the glorious photographs on the webiste fail to do justice to the extraordinary location and charm of the cottages. Each has something different to offer but all are very comfortable and well looked after. Our favourite is Le Pressoir, mainly for the view from the terrace over the fields and the Blavet and the mountains beyond. A typical day might include a leisurely breakfast (admiring that view) followed by a drive to one of the many local markets, lunch, back to La Garenne for a cycle along the river to the local cafe for a coffee, then back for a late afternoon swim, glass of wine, chat with neighbours, game of badminton, dinner, more wine, book next to the fire and bed. If that sounds like your sort of holiday then this is the place to do it.

“Beautiful cottages in idyllic location”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2011

We had a good week here in June. Sadly the weather was not particulary good so we weren't really able to enjoy the pool, grounds or barbecue. However, if it had been dry these facilities would have been fantastic and the pool and grounds were perfectly maintained. Instead we enjoyed a roaring fire some evenings, with plenty of fuel for the wood burner from the woodpile!! There is plenty to do in the area and day trips out to Carnac, Lorient and some of the coast resorts were enjoyable, as was the market at Hennebont. The bar/restaurant at the bridge only serves food at lunchtime. We ate in a fair bit - allowed us to have some wine without driving- and the cooking facilities were excellent with plenty of dishes, pots etc. Beds were comfortable and bathroom nicely fitted. Jeanine was very welcoming and once you were settled in unobtrusive, but there if you needed her, or wanted a chat ( in pidgeon french/english) The welcome pack was great - good quality ham and pate,cheese, fruit, wine, milk and other treats and we dined well on the contents. So, even for a rainy week in June we enjoyed the cottage greatly and found plenty to do and see. If it had been sunny I doubt we would have ventured far !
