Our Gites

We have two gites next to each other. La Roche is the larger, a pleasant and spacious semi-detached stone house built at the beginning of the 20th century. It is suitable for groups up to 8. La Meule is a recently renovated stone house with lots of character suitable for a family of 4. The two houses can be booked together if yours is a large party; they would accommodate comfortably up to 12 people. If booked together, a 10% discount would apply on both houses.

The houses are set in a small hamlet (La Roche St Vincent) amongst farmland and offer excellent views whilst the attractive villages of St Laurant Sur Oust and Ruffiac are only five minutes drive away. The coast is around 50 minutes and there are many places to visit in the local area including the medieval town of Vannes, the picturesque Rochefort en Terre and the chateau at Josselin. The Lac au Duc, the largest natural lake in Brittany, with swimming, water sports and good walks is only twenty minutes away.

This is a perfect situation for those who like the tranquility of a rural setting whilst still being able to easily get out and about to local towns and the coast.In Ruffiac you will find bars, restaurants and shops. The delightful riverside town of Malestroit, a `Petite Cite de Charactere,` with its weekly market and good range of shops is about ten minutes drive. The two properties are described in detail below.

 

(1) La Roche is an original stone built semi-detached cottage. It has been fully refurbished and now offers excellent accommodation for six people in three bedrooms plus a double bed settee in the large lounge. The house has central heating (and an open fire) for those colder winter months.

The spacious lounge with its tile floor is designed around the original Breton fireplace. There is a comfy three piece suite, coffee table. CD player, TV (with access to UK channels) and DVD player Doors lead directly out to the front, lawned garden.

The large kitchen/ dining area is well equipped with a range of modern units, gas cooker, microwave, fridge, washing machine, coffee filter machine, toaster and kettle etc. There is a large, oak dining table & chairs. There is plenty of space to cook in comfort here although if the weather’s good you’ll probably spend more time using the barbeque outside. The semi open plan design gives views through to the lounge and ensures safety if you have children.

There is a bathroom on the ground floor with bidet, sink unit and bath with shower attachment. There is also a separate toilet.

Upstairs are three large bedrooms plus a second bathroom with a new shower, a WC and a washbasin. The main bedroom is a large, light and airy space and has a double bed. The other two bedrooms are both large and well furnished, with two single beds in each room.

The private off road parking on the drive will easily accommodate two cars. There is a large garden/orchard at the back of the house which is safe for children, large enough for playing and ideal for the younger ones to explore. At the front of the house is a good sized lawned area and a large patio with excellent views of the valley. There is a garden table, chairs and BBQ.
