About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Mark Perkins

I retired from teaching languages a few years ago. I enjoy looking after our properties in France and in the UK as it is such a lovely way to interact with people from different cultures and backgrounds. I love gardening, cooking and walking and travelling. When I am not doing these, I spend my time reading or making things.

Unique benefits of property The property is situated in the countryside. It is in a quiet hamlet which makes it the ideal place for a restful holiday and a safe place for the children to play. It is within easy distance of the sea, popular touristic attractions such as the Gulf of Morbihan, Vannes, Carnac and sites of outstanding beauty.

The Owner Recommends


Visit the standing stones in Carnac. La Table des Marchands in Locmariaquer is also worth a detour.


Le Fournil in Ambon. Try the lovely galettes and pancakes in this wonderful creperie situated in Ambon. At the same time sample the local cider, it is certainly worth it!!!


Brilliant market in Damgan on Tuesdays and Saturdays. A great choice of seafood, charcuterie and cheese. Lots of other things too..

Golfe du Morbihan

Visit this wonderful area. Why not book a trip on one of the boats which depart from Port-Navalo and visit one of the islands. Wonderful day out!!

La Maree - Muzillac

The best seafood around and within 3 miles from Le Grand Bodo. Need to book especially during the summer.

We really enjoyed our stay at the farmhouse over Christmas. The house itself was very well equipped and cosy with its wood burner. The garden and outside areas were lovely and peaceful.
Marie was very helpful and accommodating, especially when our ferry was cancelled. The area is great for both coastal walks and towns and cities like Nantes and Vannes - we could have easily filled another week. All in all highly recommended.

Beautiful gite, very clean and on arrival a lovely gift to welcome us. The location was great and we had a wonderful week exploring the area, we especially loved Vannes and would recommend visiting. There was everything we needed and a wonderful garden. Owners very helpful and quick to reply. Would highly recommend.

We all enjoyed our holiday at this lovely farmhouse very much. With near perfect weather, an excellent location and everything we could need in the house we were able to relax and enjoy our visit. We particularly liked the fact that the patio and garden were right outside the kitchen which meant we were easily able to enjoy all our meals in the French sunshine. Hopefully we can return to this lovely area one day soon.
