Holiday Rental House
Charming stone-built, Breton farmhouse situated in heart of beautiful, tranquil Brittany countryside. Vine-covered thick granite walls make it cool in summer, cosy in winter with its cast iron log-burning stove. The farmhouse has a large gravelled drive, ideal for long summer evenings of Boules and barbecues. The property stands in its own estate of 9 acres with lawns and drifts of summer annual flowers immediately surrounding it. Over the private lane is a meadow, which in turn leads to a woodland glade and trail down to our own private lake with rowing boat. The lake has a small jetty for diving and swimming and we regularly stock it with rainbow trout. Day tickets are available to fish the lake.

There are scores of wonderful trees for climbing and the woods near the lake offer great den-building opportunities. We grow our own vegetables and we are always happy to share our surplus! Freshly laid eggs from our 6 hens are usually available too. Our children have all loved learning to ride a bike here on the safe driveway and smooth tarmac lane.More

Interaction with guests
We live on-site in a completely separate farmhouse with our family and two friendly dogs. We will usually be here ourselves to welcome guests and be on-hand to offer any assistance that may be necessary but we also completely respect our guests' privacy and will be guided by your needs. If we are away, we will leave the property in the hands of trusted managers (friends!) who will be here to welcome you and assist you. Guests are welcome to roam anywhere they please within the grounds, but the garden immediately around the gite will be entirely for your use only.

About the neighbourhood
We are in the heart of the Brittany countryside where there is no light pollution. On a clear, moonless night the stars are as bright and pin-sharp as you'll find anywhere and the Milky Way really lives up to its name. Apart from the occasional tractor you won't hear any traffic noise and at night all you will hear are owls. We are keen gardeners and each year we plant swathes of Summer annuals which are both beautiful to look at and a major attraction for bees, butterflies and other insects. There are scores of walking routes nearby, and Lac du Bel Air is just a short walk away, offering fishing, sailing, pedaloes and swimming off its sandy beach with its own cafe and bar.The roads are very quiet and ideal for relaxing cycle rides.
Getting around
You will need your own car here, but the roads are incredibly quiet and you will rarely, if ever, be stuck in traffic!
