About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Penny McClure

We bought Le Camus in early 2008 to create an easy to escape to holiday home for our growing family. The renovation was carried out to a high standard and the house is impeccably maintained by close relatives who have lived in the local area for many years. We particularly enjoy staying at Le Camus when we are need of relaxation from our busy working lives.

Year property purchased 2008
Why this location? This locality is a perfect haven for anyone wanting an escape from busy towns and cities. The lack of traffic, the sound of bird song, the unrestricted rural views and the friendly welcoming nature of the local population mean we are frequently drawn back to the area when in need of rest and recuperation.
Unique benefits of property Le Grand Camus has a wonderful master suite which includes a 4-poster super king-size bed, in addition the other 2 bedrooms each have zip-link beds with high quality mattresses meaning the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms can be configured as doubles or twin depending on guests' requirements.

A lovely place that allows you to relax. Within an hours drive of the coast and some wonderful beaches and seaside towns/villages. Great restaurants nearby. Our latest visit was our 6th.

We have always booked self catering cottages or gites for our holidays, so have a wide experience of both good and bad. The Grand Camus was outstanding. From the lovely rural setting, great garden, and the facilities offered in the gite itself, it couldn't be better. It was clean, warm, comfortable and furnished to a very high standard. The welcome pack was much appreciated, and helpful information provided by the owner was very useful. We would have no hesitation on recommending this property to friends or family.

Le Camus is tucked away down a quiet country road and in a lovely setting. Everything you could wish for was provided and was very well equipped and comfortable. There are some pretty villages within a few miles of the house and is not too far from the coast. We will definitely return.

We have been regular visitors to this gite since 2009. It is very well equiped, furnished to a very high standard, well maintained and very clean. It has a bright, modern interior in a traditional Breton farmhouse. The setting is tranquil and very rural with views over open countryside from all around since it is close to the top of a hill. There are six or seven other houses spread out in the vicinity so it is set in space but not isolated. It is ideal for walking an cycling straight from the door. A former railway line about 2 miles away has been converted for walking and cycling, running 30 miles or more across central Brittany, and can be reached down quiet lanes. The Nante-Brest Canal is also 30 minutes away by car and offers lovely walks and cycling drom Joselin or Rohan. The large village of Plemet is about 4 miles away for a supermarket, two bakeries and other shops. The north and south Breton coasts are about an hour away, as is Rennes. For us it provides a very restful and break and provides everthing we need. In the past it also provided a good place for our son to revise for A level exams.
