|Year property purchased||2004|
|Why this location?||It has everything! Close to the sea, close to Vannes, and benefiting from a village location and amenities, it ticks all our boxes.|
|Unique benefits of property||The gite is incredibly well-equipped inside and out. Our fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality. The garden offers table tennis, swing ball and other games, in addition there is a public tennis court a minutes walk away. We also have a wood-fired pizza oven which is very popular.|
With or without children, this zoo is not to be missed. Excellent ecological credentials and a beautiful setting at any time of the year - around 20 minutes from the house.
This is our café/bar/ live music venue. Daily grocery store/fresh bread & croissant store/ chambre d'hôte, everything really. Don and Ellen are American, but have lived here since the 1960's. They are delightfully friendly and we are lucky to have them so nearby! They can also arrange an organic veggie box for you (10 Euros) on a Friday afternoon.
Fantastic aquarium in the Le Croisic area, around 30 minutes from the gite, well worth visiting.
For a special meal or celebration this is one of the best restaurants you will ever eat at! Around 15 minutes drive from the property, with good prices for the standard of cooking, seafood dominates the menu and everything is mouthwatering! See our restaurant guide in the gite for more info....
We are lucky to have a luxurious spa only 30 minutes from us. Brittany is famous for these seawater therapies and 'day' packages are available.
Creperie du Gorvello - 2 minutes walk
A whole old slate quarry which has been made into park, with actual size models of dinosaurs, prehistoric man etc. Many explanations are in English. Once again about 20 minutes from us.
