The surrounding area has many beautiful places to visit, from the medieval walled towns of Hennebont, Vannes and Josselin, to the ancient port town of Auray – St Goustan. The superb variety of beaches from Quiberon to Carnac and the Gulf of Morbihan, with its hundreds of islands, are all within 30 to 45 minutes reach. Some ideal for sailing/surfing others for sandcastles and swimming. Our favourite is Carnac - very child friendly and with many great restaurants. Both car and passenger ferries offer trips to various islands, and around the Gulf. Prehistoric sites are numerous in the area, including the standing stones at Carnac (the most important in Europe) and the forest Foret de Huelgoat, that once stretched the length of prehistoric Brittany. Lots of activities and places to visit for the children. Poul Fetan is a most - a historic Breton village recreated. Don't miss the Breton games!! Many local markets.
'Activities' The Blavet river is delightful for cycling walking and fishing - and it is right on your doorstep. Canoes and Pedaloes for hire at St Nicholas des Eaux a delightful village with Bars and restaurants on the banks of the river. There are 5 Golf courses within an hours drive. At Camors there is a challenging & excellent Tree Top trek climbing, with courses for all ages and fitness. Paint balling is also available. There is a Go Carting track at Plumeliau. The Southern coast of Brittany benefits from delightful beaches some great for families others popular with surfers. The Golf de Morbihan has numerous islands and is popular for sailing and boat trips.
Three generations enjoyed there holiday at Le Manior
The house was very comfortable and spacious. We really enjoyed the pool and made use of the bicycles. The house is little out of the way,which made it very peaceful but just a short car journey to supermarkets and the town
. I should also say that the septic tank was particularly smelly which didn't make for a pleasant evenings sat out with a glass of wine after a busy day entertaining grandchildren . Never the less we all agreed we had a good holiday.
Thanks for the review Nick. Glad that you enjoyed your holiday.
Le Manoir is ideal for multi generational groups - with lots of space for everyone - and some spaces to disappear into for that quiet moment.
Apologies for the slight septic tank smell.
We did discover a small hole in the external ventilation outlet shortly after your stay - which was fixed - but apologies we weren't aware of it whilst you were staying.
Look forward to seeing you in the near future.
We had a great time at Le Manoir de Treblavet. The house was very spacious with 5 big bedrooms and a lovely large cool lounge. We all enjoyed the pool which was warm and inviting. The pool was cleaned on the Wednesday. The weather was hot and sunny after a stormy start on the Sunday. Lots to see around the area: St Barthélemy was tiny but had a lovely bakery and a small grocery shop. We visited st Nicholas des Eaux which was very pretty and only a 15 minute drive away: we had delicious Crepes in a creperies called Le Chalet. Baud and Pontivy are nice to mooch around, working towns but some pretty parts. We spent a day at Carnac Plage on the beach and then had a trip into La Trinite sur Mer, which is a gorgeous little harbour. It took about an hour to get to Carnac. We enjoyed lots of games of table tennis in the games Barn and we played boules on the lawn. There was a slight smell of septic tank but it was very hot that week and all houses in rural France have one. We thoroughly enjoyed our week!
Thanks for the review Charlotte. We've really glad you enjoyed your holiday.
Le Manoir is ideal for individual families or groups - especially as it is not part of a complex, so you get total privacy. The pool is larger than most, and is always made the most of.
A lot of guests find the house, pool, gardens and beautiful Blavet river by the house such a pull that they don't venture as far a field as they had planned - but there are some fantastic places to visit, the majority within an hours drive, so I'm really glad you discovered a little of the surrounding area.
Apologies for the slight septic smell - shortly after you left, we did discover that there was a slight hole in the ventilation pipe in the garden, which was most likely the cause.
It was mended as soon as it was discovered.
Look forward to seeing you in the near future
