Le Portail Bleu - beautifully presented 17th and 18th century Breton stone gites surrounded by trees, sitting in secluded grounds. Comfortable, child-friendly accommodation with traditional features, which together with an in-ground heated swimming pool (which is both fenced and alarmed) and large childrens play area make us the ideal place for a rural gite holiday from which to explore southern Brittany and the Loire Valley with its many vineyards.
The self catering gites are approached via a separate, gated, entrance drive lined with fruit trees, leading to the parking area. The fully enclosed gardens with grand old oak trees (giving a parkland feel) are surrounded by gently rolling countryside offering peace and quiet - why not barbecue on the patio, relax by the heated swimming pool or explore this varied and interesting region.
