The gite is situated in the heart of the beautiful floral village of Le Gorvello. Your accommodation is part of a traditional “longere” or longhouse, which were very common in this part if Brittany. The original part of this one, we believe, dates back to around 1750. We refurbished it to an exceptional standard over a period of two years.
Details of the accommodation can be found below. Everything is fitted out to the highest standard - doors and windows are oak, towels and bedlinen are pure cotton or Egyptian cotton, the kitchen is over-equipped with utensils etc. Everything in your gite is spotless, the windows are clean, the garden is tidy, and everything you might need has been thought of.
You will find in the gite a detailed explanation of the area, places to visit, and a restaurant guide and reviews.

The Brittany region
Vannes enjoys a "micro-climate" due to its unique position in the Gulf of Morbihan, which is itself acknowledged as one of the 29 "most beautiful bays in the world". It is a fascinating blend of ancient and modern, with some outstanding restaurants, good independent shops and festivals throughout the year (sailing, jazz, historic).
Aside from the beaches there are a wealth of discoveries in this part of Brittany - the Megalithic stones of Carnac are half an hour away, markets, water parks, sailing etc etc
From your gite you can see the public tennis court, which is rarely used by others (we provide rackets & tennis balls for your use). There are two horse riding centres nearby, and any number of marked ramblers paths and routes, also you will find 2 boules courts in the village. There are some superb local golf courses (ask about our golf packages). In Sene (10 minutes drive) there is an acclaimed bird sanctuary with guided tours and observation points. For anyone keen to get out on the water the Golfe du Morbihan is perfect, there are sailing courses for beginners and experts all along the coast, fishing, windsurfing, kite boarding etc - and if Peter ever gets our boat fixed up we may one day offer trips here from the gite!
There is a huge folder of information and personal recommendations in the gite, and we are always available to discuss how to make the most of your time here.

"A great Christmas break"
Jenni's welcome was very warm. We took advantage of Jenni's ready meal service on our first night and not only was the food extremely tasty but it was beautifully served to us by Jenni's sons, Jake and Sam. There was a good selection of welcome "goodies" (fresh milk, biscuits, pancakes, wine, cider, jam, honey to name but a few) which were delicious and very useful. The gite itself is absolutely lovely and is finished to a very high standard with all the mod cons you could want on holiday. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were all of a very good standard - nice soft fluffy towels and crisp bedding - and everywhere was spotless. We were there to visit extended family over the Christmas period and the house was warm and cosy and on the couple of evenings we did stay in we lit the log burner just to make it even cosier. The village itself is very pretty and there are plenty of walking opportunities nearby. We know the area quite well but for those that don't there is a lot of information in the gite to set you off in the right direction and I have no doubt that Jenni and Peter would be more than happy to help with more information. Unfortunately, our weather was rather wet but the outside space in better weather would also be lovely. All in all, a gem of a find and one we would hope to return to again.
Delighted that you enjoyed your stay here, and thank you for your thoughtful comments. It was a pleasure to have you here - only sorry it was the wettest Xmas ever!
