William Morris Wall coverings complimented by a palette of Farrow and Ball Estate range colours to accentuate period detail sympathetically harmonise without attempting too bold a statement! Second French Empire, style, is a tall order for any designer and very hard to achieve, or at least, pass-off as authentic.

Today La Maison Manoir can boast the status of being a by-product of the Second French Empire Paris re-birth which, although no Chateau, still holds a significant place in French architectural history. La Maison Manoir æsthetically represents “Grandeur” through a relatively simple but very era-specific design.

The Village of Ménéac

Ménéac: A Village location in the heart of magical rural Brittany with its eye-catching views and Celtic allure.

La Maison Manoir is located opposite the village school and street also boasts the Mayors Office, Library, Pharmacy, Pizza-Bar (with Pool Table) and General Store. At the top of the street is the Church, Newsagents, Post Office, Credit Agricole Cash-Point Machine, Boulangerie / Patisserie and Restaurant.

La Maison Manoir is well situated to discover popular tourist sites this fascinating, historic region has to offer. Ménéac Village has a population of circa 2,000 inhabitants. This has the advantage of NOT turning into a Tourist Ghost Town out of season, making a great location all year round.

Location description from owner

The Brittany region

There are some great places to visit in Brittany;St.MaloMedieval walled city with a fascinating history dating back to the 6th Century, full of places to visit amongst its cobbled streets with plenty of places to eat and drink.DinardDinard has all the elements of the perfect resort, luxury villas, long paved promenades, plush hotels, smart shops, parks and gardens. These along with its victorian atmosphere adds to Dinard's appeal for all.St. BrieucThe busy capital of the Cotes du Nord, St Brieuc is a country town with old country houses and a pleasant pedestrian only centre. Its fortress like cathedral, markets, good restaurants give it a cheerful, human feelRoscoffAn important car ferry port and a fishing port famous for its lobster and crayfish the port also boasts a prominent marine biological laboratory and a fascinating aquariumBrestBoats a large natural harbour with panoramic views. Be sure to see the fascinating Musee du Vieux-Brest with its exhibition of documents and pictures that portray its past.QuimperKnown as Brittany's Cornwall, it is the treasure house of of the Bretons values and traditions.LorientOnce the base of the French East Indian Company, it suffered badly during World War II and was reconstructed in its entirety to become a businesslike port and naval dockyard. The delights of the French way of life can be summed up in one word, Brittany. Brittany offers eight hundred miles of grand rocky coastline with scores of bays and little fishing villages. The enchanting countryside is dotted with giant granite boulders and wild meadows on the moors, thickets and forests in a gently rolling landscape.It is the buildings that give a region its soul, and in Brittany, you can find it in the megaliths, cavalries, castles, manor houses, countless chapels and old villages. All of them bear witness to Brittany's eventful history and wealth of traditions. Brittany was, after all, home to the enchanted Forest, was where Merlin lived, and where corsairs sailed to the new world. The people from Quebec retrace their roots here, and Great Britain owes the "great" in its name to distinguish it from this unique region of France.Some specialities of the region are wafer biscuits and butter cookies. However, Brittany's proudest addition to the great cuisines of the world has to be the crêpe and its savoury equivalent the galette – these can be found all over in any of the typical Breton "crêperies" along the roadside or in the centres of old towns where visitors are often welcomed with a traditional cup of cider.
