This location has multiple holiday properties
|The Chestnut Loft||Self Catering||Saturday||3||5||1|
Le Rhun’s farmhouse and former farm outbuildings have been thoughtfully converted to provide 5 individual and stylish holiday retreats: the Farmhouse (sleeps up to 14), Ecurie (sleeps 4), Etable (sleeps 8), Hibou (sleeps 5) and the Chestnut Loft apartment (sleeps 5). Set in Le Rhun’s beautiful rolling farmland, the holiday homes retain many of their original features – a delightful combination of stone, slate and exposed beams, giving the properties tremendous charm and character. Each property has a private terrace or garden with barbecue. Unpack and relax in the comfort of your home from home - washing/drying machine, dvd, hi-fi, hairdryer, microwave, food processor and picnic basket complete with bucket and spade! Outside you'll find plenty to do. If you're feeling active, head for our heated outdoor pool, ball games field, swings or sandpit. If it's peace and quiet you seek, head off down our farm tracks and woodland walks where you'll find plenty of shady spots to settle down with your picnic basket, a good book and a glass of wine. Don't forget your camera - the wildlife is abundant.
Argol's picturesque village square is half a kilometre along the lane with its boulangerie, La Poste, bars and creperies across from the ancient church. The cider museum and Maison des Vieux Métiers hold regular exhibitions and living displays of country crafts.

We had a wonderful stay at Le Rhun. The facilities are fantastic for children. Lesley & Alan (the owners) have gone to incredible length to create a wonderful imaginative play site for children. Along with the play barn there are hiding dens around every corner, a pirate ship in the trees and even a fairy glen.
I am sure there will be other surprises to discover that we missed.
