About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Paul Clark

We (Paul, retired Police Officer & Elaine, Teacher) have been running La Belle Vilaine Holiday Gites since 2005. We have an excellent return rate . We pride ourselves on being available to assist, yet remain unobtrusive.<br/>Our gites are rural, with lovely views but also ideally located within easy reach of local amenities & attractions. There are many beautiful walks which start from the gite door.

Year property purchased 2005
Why this location? Because it is ideally set on border of Morbihan & Loire Atlantique enjoying a much warmer & drier climate than other areas of Brittany. Also we are situated within easy reach of a number of stunning beaches along the Southern Brittany & Western Loire
coastline. We are near to the quaint medieval town of Vannes with its half timbered buildings, cobbled street and its port leading into the Gulf of Morbihan. In the other direction also within easy reach is the stunning city of Nantes. We are 10 minutes from the region of Loire Atlantique (44) with its famous national nature reserve, The Grand Briere - a miniature version of The Norfolk Broads.
La Roche Bernard, a beautiful river port town with its weekly market is an ideal place to explore, you can take a choice of river trips from here too.
