I bought Le Camus in early 2008 to create an easy to escape to holiday home for my growing family. The renovation was carried out to a high standard and the house is impeccably maintained by relatives who live locally. I particularly enjoy staying at Le Camus and hope our gite guests will also do so.
|Year property purchased||2008|
|Why this location?||Le Camus our holiday home in Brittany is a truly tranquil location, ideal for barbecues, relaxing with a book and a drink, watching the bird life, sketching the scenery, strolling or fishing beside the nearby river.|
|Unique benefits of property||Completely flexible changeover days.
Zip link beds in 2 of the 4 en suite bedrooms make La Camus suitable for families or groups of friends as the beds can be configured as 2 doubles and 4 singles, 3 doubles and 2 singles or 4 doubles.
The chef also owns the deli next door - the food is delicious, beautiful to look at and there is lots of it. This is somewhere to savour your meal, slowly - arrive at 7.30pm leave at 11 - having enjoyed 4 wonderful courses plus amuse-bouche. They will prepare seafood platters with advance warning, but whatever the menu of the day proposes is guaranteed to be good quality, seasonal food. An ideal venue for romantic meals or for large celebrations - there are several different eating areas suitable for couples or large families.
We have revisited this property many times and it never fails to impress. The high quality of facilities has been maintained over the years. The equipment in the house is at least as good as at home and each year something new is added - this year a chimney barbecue.
The peaceful garden is ideal for people looking to relax and unwind. You do need a car though to reach the local town and other places to visit. There are walking routes and cycle routes for the more active and many fascinating towns and coastal resorts to visit within about an hour's drive.
Highly recommended. One big advantage is that there are two gites - one sleeping four and the other six, that have a connecting door between for larger family parties.
Customer service is friendly, prompt and on-the-spot. Any problems are quickly sorted out.
We have stayed at Le Camus 5 times and always have a most enjoyable time.The house is wonderful
and the owner's representative is very helpful. There are pleasant walks around the house and the coast is under 1 hour away. The restaurants in some of the nearby villages are excellent value. The birdsong is a delight and there is plenty of opportunity to bird watch with a glass of wine in your hand.
Another repeat visit did not disappoint us. Once again the house was immaculate with everything one could wish provided. We can only point out to potential new visitors that Le Camus is not within walking distance of cafes boulangeries and restaurants. However there are wonderful country walks around, there are places to rent bikes and kayaks and even motor assisted bikes. Plemet has a good supermarket which will provide everything you need.
The surrounding area has many 'petite cites de charactere' - lovely old towns with lots to see. The North coast and the Gulf of Morbihan coast are each within about an hour's drive. Well worth a day out.
If you are looking for a peaceful, (very) quiet place to stay to wind down in beautiful rural France, look no further. Coming from the UK you are only an hour from St Malo ferry.
Food markets and restaurants are a foodie paradise.
Penny and Ray, the owner's representatives are always on hand to provide advice and a friendly welcome.
