About this property

Beautifully Renovated Barn in Rolling Countryside. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Welcome to our lovingly restored granite built barn.

Bought in 2004, we have fully restored the property to a high standard.
Many of the features in the property have been handcrafted and are totally unique.

The barn is nestled within the quiet, tranquil, unspoilt countryside of Central Brittany.

In 2006 we started our small holding, to grow and produce all our own produce and livestock, this makes us an ideal holiday choice for children as they can experience the life of a working farm but on a smaller scale.
 
Sit back and relax beside the private heated swimming pool (open during summer June to Aug).

The Owner Recommends

Bon Repos

The abbaye is a large historical building dating back to 1184, it is situated alongside the Nantes-Brest Canal. If your holiday is during the begining of August there is a spectacular performance re-enacting the history of the abbaye. The spectical of sound and light (Son et Luminaire) is held outside in the grounds of the abbaye, using the abbeye as the backdrop, an epic experience that lasts 2 hours, it is highly recommended. Approx 30 mins away.

Zooparc Tregomeur

The zoo was a big investment of 6 million Euros by the general council, it was one of the first to be constructed in Brittany, well worth a visit. There is a large selection of animals from the big cats down to the small amphibians, this is something not to be missed. There are places to eat and to take a picnic. Approx 50 mins away.

Stone Saints of Carnoët

These are truly amazing to see.....all hand carved from granite by artists around Brittany.....there are onsite cafe or take a picnic and just sit back and relax taking in the spectacular carvings , some as big as 15+ feet

This is a home where you holiday, not a holiday home.
A beautifully presented home with unique and individual touches.
Clean, well equipped with the most conformable beds.
The garden is beautiful, the pool a fabulous asset and the game room a hidden gem.
The owners Gary and Helen were wonderful, helpful and welcoming, with great local knowlegde and recommendations, however also unobtrusive.
They allowed access to their land and livestock, sharing their love of the land and thier animals.
Lanrivain is a great base to explore the Cotes de amor, nothing is no more than an hour away

The Gite is placed amongst the rolling hills of central Brittany, ideally placed for exploration of the North or South coast lines of Brittany.
The Owners are welcoming and respect of whatever the guest requires, be it privacy or a tour of the farm and surrounding land, its your choice.
Children will love the heated pool and games room which has a pool table, dart board and other bits and pieces.
There is also a sizable grassed area for outdoor games.
Will be recommending to friends!

Very quiet serene setting, superbly appointed accommodation, hosts that can't do enough for you and also respect your privacy. What more could you ask
