Situated in the beautiful village of Le Gorvello with its bar/café, crêperie, tennis court and art gallery, we are 10 minutes from the centre of Vannes, 10 minutes from the beaches, but still surrounded by beautiful countryside. Watersports and fishing nearby.
Accommodation. Ground floor. Lounge with all facilities, fully-fitted kitchen (dishwasher)/dining room, bathroom with shower, double bedroom with frenchdoors to garden, further bedroom.
First floor. Two large double bedrooms and bathroom.
Refurbished to an exceptional standard. Exposed beams. Large garden. Linen and towels provided.
Full range of childrens equipment available.
A fully fitted oak kitchen, with ample storage. We provide excellent quality crockery and cutlery for every possible requirement. There is also a multitude of kitchen equipment - blenders, juicers, toasters, a "Tassimo" coffee machine etc etc. You will also find basic groceries provided. A full inventory is sent out with our booking confirmation so nobody needs to bring anything they don't need to on holiday with them!
There is an integrated dishwasher, a large fridge and freezer, microwave, cooker and hob, & extraction fan. Also provided are tablecloths, linen napkins, teatowels, kitchen rolls etc etc
We provide dining chairs for up to 8 people (if required) as well as a high chair and toddler support attachment.

Wood burning fire.
Upstairs are two large bedrooms. Both are decorated to an exceptional standard. At the front of the gite is a large double. There is a wrought iron bedframe, a huge walk in wardrobe (good for hide-and-seek as well as all your cases and clothes!) bedside tables, lamps, chair etc. There is also ample room for a cot or z-bed if needed.
At the back of the property is a twin room, again with room for extra sleeping facilities if needed. Bedside tables, a large chest of drawers etc.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our bedlinen which is generally from The White Company, John Lewis or similar. We have feather or synthetic pillows and duvets.
Both upstairs rooms have full blackout shutters, which, in our experience helps children sleep extremely well (and longer!)
Downstairs is another double bedroom, again with a built in wardrobe, bedside tables, a two seater sofa and small table. There are large French windows leading to a small patio and the back garden.
Downstairs is a full bathroom with bath, shower over bath, toilet, built in sink unit with storage and heated towel rail. This bathroom has fully tiled walls and floors, and a large mirror with lighting.
Upstairs bathroom has a walk in shower (90cm x 90cm) toilet, sink, towel rail and is fully tiled too.
Again, our towels are all from The White Company (bath sheets and hand towels per guest)
We can also provide whatever child friendly equipment you may need - steps, toilet training seat, baby bath support, bath toys etc.
Soap is provided too.
Woodburner (logs charged at cost, or you are welcome to provide your own)
The gite has full electric central heating, it is fully insulated with double glazing throughout and is very comfortable in all seasons.
We offer regular pizza evenings from our wood fired pizza oven on site. Further details sent with our booking confirmation pack.
As we live on site too, we are always happy to chat over an aperitif!
We have an endless supply of tourist information, personal recommendations and advice, and are more than happy to spend time tailoring a specific itinery with you to help you get the most of your time here.
We can also offer the services of an excellent reflexologist who will visit you here.
Huge external space, with many different areas.
Large ornamental front gardens. Traditional potager (vegetable, herb and fruit gardens) - guests are welcome to pick their own when things are in season. Friendly chickens (it's their eggs in your welcome pack!)
Childrens play area, with sand pit. Table tennis table, swingball etc
Lawns, patios, ample outside seating and dining areas, barbecue, quiet areas.
Our outside areas are constantly evolving and being improved - we're always happy to discuss our plans and projects.
Ample onsite paved parking.
The property does have steps and different levels, as is normal in a property of this age. We can however accommodate people with some reduced mobility. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom is suitable for those who may find stairs a challenge. Please contact us to discuss your exact requirements.
We are suitable for children of all ages, and can arrange onsite babysitting and other services. Having had 4 children of our own and welcomed tiny babies to teenagers over the past ten years we hope we have thought of everything younger guests may need. Our experience is that if children are happy, everyone has a better holiday!

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.
