Comfortable family farmhouse Gite
Right in the heart of the rolling Brittany countryside and surrounded by forests, Les Vallées Gite is a 100 year old traditional Breton longere (long-house) stone and slate farmhouse that has been tastefully renovated into a comfortable and relaxing family Gite that will be exclusively yours for your holiday break.
The Gite is in a small hamlet of 5 houses situated right in the centre of Brittany on the border of departments 22 (Cotes d'Armor) and 56 (Morbihan).
We're perfectly situated, only 40 minutes from both the North and South Brittany coasts, as well as having being close to many local attractions within this beautiful part of North-West France.
The Gite has retained many of its original farmhouse features such as massive oak beams, carved fireplaces and traditional tiled floors whilst we've added modern comforts such as central heating, satellite TV, double glazing, a dishwasher and power shower.
Downstairs the main L-shaped building consists of a large Lounge with working fireplace, a fully-fitted Kitchen and a toilet/shower room; whilst upstairs are two double bedrooms and a twin bedroom, a separate toilet and the bathroom.
Outside, the Gite is situated in a roughly half acre enclosed Garden, surrounded by fields and woods. Between the two 'wings' of the Gite is a floodlit gravelled courtyard and a large open barn on the opposite side.
Beyond the Gite and barn are two large grassed gardens with apple and pear trees, a massive oak tree, flower and shrub beds.
Getting to the Gite is easy with ferries from Portsmouth, Poole and Plymouth to St Malo (1 ½ hours drive), Roscoff (2 hours), Caen (3 hours), Cherbourg (4 hours) and Le Havre (4 hours).
If you prefer the quicker Dover/Calais crossing or Eurotunnel, it's only 6 hours drive (and can cost a fantastic £19 each way with Norfolk Line); or you can fly from 99p with Ryanair, FlyBe or AerArran to local Brittany airports from a number of regional airports across the UK and Ireland including London Luton, Stansted, Nottingham, Birmingham, Exeter, Southampton, Cardiff, Cork, Waterford and Dublin.
