|Why this location?||Our working lives were pretty hectic and full on. When we first saw our house in Brittany, we fell in love with both it and the location. It was peace, perfect peace, but within easy reach of beaches, history and shopping centres.|
|Unique benefits of property||Easy reach of the western, channel ports and airports|
The departmental capitol, 'old town' Vannes is rich in history with wonderful medi-eval architecture. The market on Saturday mornings offers locally grown, farm produce and the fish hall is a must visit. The Parc du Golfe is about a mile south of the town centre, where you can join boat trips around the Golfe du Morbihan. There is an aquarium with a huge collection of tropical find and the Jardin au Papillon where hundreds of butterflies fly freely.

Pontivy is a lovely market town which was once the seat of one of the most powerful families before becoming one of Napolean's 'new towns'. The chateau retains many of its orginal features and is open to the public
We were greeted by the owner on arrival, he was knowledgeable, helpful and accomodating. We have stayed in several gites over the past few years and this must rate as the best by far. Well worth the stay, only down side is no bakery in the local village. Well placed in Morbihan for all to see.
Thanks for your kind comments. Sadly, the local bakery closed due to ill-health, but the Maire has been trying to find a new owner to take over the business.
