About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Lynne Southern

We are originally from England but have lived and worked in France for 20 years. We live near Tours in the centre of France, our two children have been educated here and now work in France. We bought Ker Anna both as a holiday home and for our retirement.

Year property purchased 2011
Why this location? We chose to look for property in the Morbihan after spending several holidays in the area, we love to be near the sea but chose a countryside location for the calm. We chose Péaule as it is ideally placed for both beaches and countryside activities along with large towns and cities near by. It retains a good range of shops unlike many small French towns and villages.
Unique benefits of property Ker Anna has a large garden and sunny patios for relaxing (or running around in if you like) . It is equipped with modern amenities but with the charm of the ancient beams and stone.

The Owner Recommends

Golfe du Morbihan

Inland sea with islands to explore and boat trips (from Vannes, Port Navallo etc) around and to them. Beautiful coastline and beaches, restaurants of all sorts where you can sit and watch the sea and boats.

For the more adventurous you could hire a boat yourself, the Golfe is an ideal fishing spot.

Just 40km/25m west of Péaule.

Morbihan means “small sea” in Breton so is derived from this area.

La Roche Bernard

Quaint market town with lots of history, good restaurants on the banks of the river La Vilaine, boat trips from the port and other nautical activities are available.

Lots of small shops in the Artisans Quarter, jewellery, pottery, paintings and much more.

Tourist Office, large supermarket and other shops both in and outside the town (16km from Peaule)

Rochefort-en-Terre

Medieval village with cobbled streets 15km/10m from Péaule, was designated one of the most beautiful villages in France.

Beaches at Kervoyal, Billiers (Penn Lann) & Ambon (Betahon)

Sandy sheltered beaches good for swimming and relaxing but also with areas of interesting rock pools at low tides and restaurants nearby (only 22km/14m from Péaule).

Questembert Market

Town with 16th century covered hall, market on Monday mornings is well worth a visit , shops etc including two larger sized supermarkets

Vannes

Historic medieval town center and the capital of Morbihan. Wednesday and Saturday morning markets. All the shop etc you will ever need are available here and in the out of town shopping areas.

Belle Isle, Ile d'Houat & Ile d'Hoedic

Islands south of Vannes with beaches etc, boat trips to them from Vannes, Arzon and Port Navalo.

A lovely, very well equipped cottage in a secluded hamlet, perfect for a relaxing break for two. There are good beaches and interesting towns within easy reach. We would certainly recommend a stay here.

10 / 10 Smiths from Plymouth 15 September, 2017

This is one of the nicest gites we've stayed in - clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped, and the English owner was most helpful. Being in the middle of the countryside, it was very quiet and peaceful.
The nearest village is quite small with only a bakery and small supermarket, both of which were very good. There is also a bar and a pizzeria.
There are interesting places to visit within 30 minutes - Rochefort-en-Terre, La Roche Bernard and Guerande.
The markets in nearby Questembert and Muzillac are worth a visit and there are restaurants and creperies in all these places. We would particularly recommend the creperie 'Kalon Digor' in Muzillac.
The nearest creperie to the gite is in Le Guerno (10 minutes away).
We would be very happy to stay there again and will be recommending Ker Anna to friends and relatives.
