About this property

Rural Retreat for Two. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Visit beautiful Brittany and experience France at its best !
 
It is all here waiting for you, clean sandy beaches, shady forest walks, traditional village fetes, fantastic restaurants and historic Breton towns
 
La Maison Orange is a stone built cottage located in a small, peaceful hamlet and has one bedroom and an en-suite bathroom making it the perfect base for two people
 
The house is just 2 minutes from the local restaurant and bakers and only ten minutes from the medieval town of Malestroit
 
Nearby La Gacilly is one of the prettiest villages in Brittany and is home to dozens of artisans. You can visit their workshops and watch silver being transformed into jewellery, iron being forged into sculptures and felt slippers taking shape in front of your eyes. 
 
Down by the river enjoy the free open air photographic exhibition, there's hundreds of huge photos displayed along the winding tracks that disappear into  the forest. When you've soaked up all that culture why not take a break and hire a small boat to enjoy the peace and quiet as you meander gently down the picturesque river ?
 
A short 30 minute drive takes you to the coast and the world famous Golfe du Morbihan, a huge nature reserve littered with hidden islands and dozens of white sandy beaches all waiting to be discovered.
 
Take the short boat trip to the Ile aux Moins and explore the twisty paths and ancient buildings. Order oysters or mussels on the quay and soak up the atmosphere of a real fishing port.
 
On Thursday mornings a huge bustling market fills the church square at Malestroit offering an unlimited choice of local seafood, fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese and regional specialities. The displays are magnificent and the competing  aromas of ripe melons, oozing camembert’s, cooking paella, spit roasting chickens and hot crepes mean it's virtually impossible to leave empty handed!
 
Brittany seems to be made for walkers..... Forest tracks, tow paths, disused railways and signposted walks it is all right here. Our neighbouring village is home dozens of mysterious bronze age standing stones and the forest that surrounds is a warren of twisty paths. We can supply special walkers pack if you'd like more information- all free of charge, of course !
 
FREE wi-fi available at La Maison Orange.

The Owner Recommends

Coastal Town of Vannes

There are restaurants and cafes in abundance and you can sit outside, have a cool drink and watch the world slide gently past If it's amazing beaches you're after then look no further than Carnac and Damgan Miles of clean white sand with loads and loads of space. Nearby is the world famous Golfe du Morbihan which is a huge nature reserve littered with hidden islands and dozens of private coves all waiting to be explored- why not take a picnic ?

La Gacilly

Nearby La Gacilly is one of the prettiest villages in Brittany and is home to dozens of artisans.
