About this property

. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Le Guillevic is a 3 bedroom gite that sleeps 6. It is 1 of 3 gites renovated from a ancient longhouse. It is brand new this year and has been converted with care to a high standard, retaining original features and decorated in a fresh and modern style with thoughtful and luxurious touches. There are wooden floors throughout.
The gite is set in a beautiful rural location (so a car is essential) and is part of an old farm. There are stunning views to the Mene Bre mountains. Apart from its own private garden there is a lovely communal area and a further 3 acres of parkland to enjoy.
We live onsite in the old farmhouse (parts of which date back to 16th century) so are around to help and advise should you need it.
It is a wonderful peaceful environment to kick back and relax or to enjoy our games room with ping pong and pool table. Children are very welcome and we can supply a cot, high chair etc. Local amenities, fantastic beaches, walks, golf, water sports, to name a few are a short drive away.
