Newly renovated in a 300 year old barn the gites are stylish and modern but retain features of their former life. The living area is open plan, light and welcoming. The gîtes are set in the countryside in walking distance to the village centre, Mordreuc and coastal paths. Mordreuc has a beach and little port and a local seal who can be found most days sunbathing on the beach or jetty!
The gites are set in large grounds and the surroundings are tranquil and peaceful.Le Chanvril gîte consists of;- Well appointed kitchen featuring electric cooker, underbench oven, large fridge, dishwasher, coffee machine, microwave and toaster.- Large dining table- Large living area with french doors opening onto a stone courtyard- LCD TV andW DVD player, stereo system- Wi-fi (included)- Off-street parkingThere are 2 spacious bedrooms on the 1st floor. Like most old Breton houses the stairs are quite steep. Both bedrooms have beds that can serve as doubles or singles. There are 2 single beds in each room that can be joined to make very comfortable 160cm doubles. The gite therefore sleeps 4. A cot can be provided if requested in advance.
Le Chanvril also has one well-equipped bathroom with a large shower and a separate WC. Le Chanvril includes laundry facilities with an all in one washing machine and dryer. Heating is provided by an ecological wood burner using recycled timber pellets and an extractor system which captures and reuses the heat that is jettisoned by standard bathroom and kitchen extractor systems.
Local Area:Pleudihen-sur-Rance is a picturesque location on the banks of a river - La Rance. There are pretty coastal tracks meandering through the fields and along the tidal river Rance.

“Beautiful cottage in a lovely location”
Le Chanvril is a lovely cottage, beautifully renovated and has everything we needed. It is conveniently situated near Pleudihen, which has a great boulangerie and an Express Carrefour which sold everything we required.Kate was extremely friendly and very helpful in providing information on where to visit We walked to Mordreuc and saw Josephine the seal, who was very interested when we were crabbing! We visited Dinan, beautiful town, and would also recommend Fort La Latte, Cap Frehel and we found a lovely beach La Fosse when we left Cap Frehel. We also went into St Malo, our daughter (16) loved the shops!!! But my husband and son went to Petit Be(fort), much better than shopping!!!! Unfortunately the day we choose to go to Mont St Michel was cloudy and then the rain/mist came at lunch time and we left!!! We enjoyed walking along the cobbled streets, my husband decided we could do a museum tour but this was in French, so unfortunately was lost on us!! I really enjoyed visiting Saint Suliac, which is not far from the cottage and this is very picturesque and very quaint. We had a lovely time, Le Chanvril was brilliant and Kate a fabulous host, and we would highly recommend staying here. Our children also (16 and 13) thought the cottage was amazing and enjoyed relaxing in the garden.
“Stylish & Comfortable Gite in a great location”
We stayed at Le Chanvril at La Touche for a week with our children (8 & 6) and loved it. The Gite is stylishly done and very comfortable. Kate is very friendly and helpful, with lots of useful advice and tips about the locality and what's going on. Poto the goat was a source of fun with the kids, as well as Josephine the seal who regularly visits the local quayside just down the road at the river Rance (there is also a very nice restaurant there too). The Gite is within easy striking distance of St Malo, Dinan, Dinard, Mont St Michel etc so there is plenty to do without going too far. Thoroughly recommended!
“What a lucky find!”
This is a beautiful gite, well equipped to a good standard and very comfortable. It’s in an idyllic location, just a short walk to the attractive village or to the river and well placed to visit Dinan, St Malo & Mont St Michel. The whole experience enhanced by Kate being so friendly & helpful.
“Lovely cottage, fantastic hosts, international atmosphere”
My husband Mikel and I (German coule) spend a relaxing 2-week holiday at Gite de la Touche, which is a romantic hideaway within easy reach of cities like Dinan, St. Malo, Rennes as well as the coast. Kate and Mark are easy-going and lovely people who do their best to make their guests comfortable. The cottage (Chanvril) is tastefully furnished and well-equipped (if wanted, even a cat is around to be cuddled) with a lovely terrace and garden. We can only recommend the place and will definitely come back one day! Thanks Kate, Mark and Antoine!
We had a lovely time over Halloween weekend at La Touche gite Le Chanvril.Rhe gite is beautiful and very comfortable with everything you need .I would totally recommend this gite for a holiday .Kate was so helpful with recommendations
“Lovely comfortable gite in superb location”
This is a fantastic gite, modern, well-equipped, spotlessly clean and with comfy beds and sofa. We loved it's location and particularly enjoyed being able to walk into the village for bread and down to the beautiful riverside in the evening - spotting Josephine the seal was a bonus which our 11 year old loved. There are many beaches and picnic spots within a short drive as well as historic Dinan and St Malo which both offer great shops and many cafes - very teenager friendly! Mont St Michel is within easy reach too. Highly recommend this gite, it was perfect for our family, providing something for everyone.
“A hideaway in rural Brittany, France”
We stayed at Les Gites de La Touche-Chanvril for 8 nights in June and it was truly a home away from home with all the facilities we needed after travelling in France for three weeks. It was great to unpack and do all our laundry. The facilities are new and very good. We had thought that we would just laze around and do nothing for the week, but in fact, as we had a car we took the opportunity to visit Mont St Michel which is only a short distance away, Saint Malo, Dinan, all very near. We loved being able to walk 10 minutes down the road to the village of Pleudian for supplies; 10 minutes in the other direction is another lovely settlement with a beach and restaurant. The property is in a rural setting and is very quiet and peaceful. Kate was very helpful and provided advice and maps for our travels beyond the gate. Kate lives on site and speaks English as her first language, so she was most helpful to us non-French speakers.
“Fabulous! Clean, cosy, comfy, a peaceful haven that is well equipped in handy location & extremely helpful hosts”
We highly recommend La Touche! Kate was welcoming and most helpful. The gite was spick & span, with lovely french rural furnishing, a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds & luxurious linen. We felt warm, safe & secure. It is a tranquil and relaxing spot, the garden was bursting with spring growth eg. a spectacular pink blossom Judas tree. Good base as handy to Dinan, Dinard (airport), San Malo (ferry), Mont San Micheal etc. We also enjoyed exploring the local countryside via walks and cycles. Enjoyed meeting the pet goats and was thrilled to hear the cuckoos & owls at night!
“Homely with lovely surrounds.”
Lovely places to visit within a short drive (under an hour), sandy beach just down the road, handy boulangerie and supermarche in village, well-equipped kitchen, super comfy beds, and great owners just next door. Thanks, Kate!
“Great place to stay for an idyllic slice of Brittany”
We (a family of four with two girls aged six and eight) stayed here for a week in the glorious Summer of 2013. We enjoyed every minute, everything was faultless. From the outside, this place is like that ideal image of a French rural cottage you have inside your head. The photos really don't do justice to its charm, from the resident goats to the cidre press! From the inside though, this an ultra-modern holiday house, although it does retain features that hint as its former life as a barn. It has been finished to a high standard and has every mod-con you would need (including a very well-equipped kitchen). As mentioned in the other reviews, there are many places of interest in local and wider area. St. Malo, Dinan, Dinard and Mont St. Michel are all within easy driving distance, and even closer (a 10 minute walk) is the neighbouring village that has a small beach with a permanently resident seal! As a rule, we do our best to venture into areas that we have never visited before when planning a holiday. But rules are made to be broken! We definitely hope to revisit Brittany in the future, and to stay again at Les Gites de la Touche.
