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.

Why this location? I was born in Brittany and our property is where my family comes from. We love the coast and countryside. It is so well situated to explore this beautiful part of France
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.

Location and Activities

Situated at the entrance of the beautiful Presqu'Ile de Rhuys and with easy access to the Golfe du Morbihan, the properties offer a wealth of activities.

8.3 / 10 AJH 4 October, 2018

A pleasant situation near villages which were attractive and had good facilities.
Lots of Sandy beaches within few miles of Gite.Plus historic towns and villages.
Beautiful weather also helped.
One drawback for older visitors was lack of W.C on first floor with bedrooms.This was not obvious in description of property.
Good response to minor problem with a light from owner.
We certainly recommend this Gite other than W.C for elderly visitors.

A fantastic, well-equipped, clean gîte set in a peaceful and tranquil area. The gîte has everything you will need for your stay, and the only sound you will hear is a local cockerel in the morning!! Close to local beaches, tourist attractions and amenities. There is even a gift waiting for you on your arrival. Would definitely consider returning!! 10/10.
