Owner's website
Year property purchased 2011
Why this location? We had very many family holidays on the south coast of Brittany near Carnac with our children, and never discovered the stunning beauty of the countryside just a few miles inland. The River Blavet is so unspoilt, and full of beauty and surprises as soon as you start walking or cycling along it. The local villages have so much character, and we have found the Breton people to be very friendly and welcoming.
Unique benefits of property Le Gohic is one of the prettiest hamlets in Brittany. Our arriving guests tell us that the pictures never do it justice, and our departing guests tell us they wish they had booked another week, and they'd like to take our dog back home with them!
The 50 square metre heated swimming pool is always a popular feature.
Parents can relax in the knowledge that their children are safe playing in the grounds.
The cottages are maintained and equipped to a high standard.
To summarise - Location and Relaxation!

The Owner Recommends

Poul Fetan

Poul Fetan is a hamlet similar in many ways to Le Gohic, which has been restored as a working village museum. It is one of the top tourist attractions in the region, and is just the other side of Quistinic village, a beautiful 15 minute drive away.

Creperie - Le Coin Tranquil

Crepes are a local Breton speciality, and one of the best creperies in the region is a short walk down the lane from Le Gohic. On the walk down you can enjoy the stunning views, and an the walk back up you can work off some of the calories!
