La Gouesniere Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms 1 bathroom 1 shower room sleeps 6+1

The house is almost 300 years old, with thick granite walls, wooden beams, & 2 large fireplaces(0ne with a wood burner). All the bedrooms are built into the eaves of the roof. The front bedrooms have windows that are floor to ceiling level as it was used many years ago as a store room for cattle fodder. The front bedrooms (one dble +1 twin) The rear bedroom has a Velux window, twin beds. There is a large WC & shower room on this floor.

The kitchen is big and is semi fitted,with a washing machine, large fridge freezer, cooker with 4 burners,& a microwave. The area is large enough to eat & plan your day, the lounge is approx 24Ft2 ( where the family would have eaten, slept & lived when it was originally a farm house).It has comfortable seating for 6 people,a large coffee table, a dresser which holds crockery for your use, a desk, a TV with a 'free sat' box for all your English channels plus a DVD. There is downstairs bathroom & WC, a separate dining room with a table that seats 6 & shelves with board games. Take advantage of our 'property owners' club membership and save 10% when travelling to the house on any of Brittany Ferries routes

Area's near us: The House itself is in a village where there is a bakers for your morning croissants,a hairdressers, 2 bar/restaurants one is a hotel & a garage. There are many beautiful sandy beaches the sea is 4 km away with gentle slopes into the water making it very safe for children. Cancale where people come from nearby Jersey/Geurnsey & indeed Paris to indulge in the sea food is just 10 min away. The Medieval Port Dinan is 40 min away and atop the hill you come to the walled city of Dinan itself. The walled city of St Malo with many shops bars and lots of history is something to be enjoyed.There is a little Hong Kong Chinese lady (Sunshine Wan) who does paper cut-outs of yourself or the children (over the years we have collected the whole family & are now on the Grandchildren!) St Servan,a part of St Malo where many Yachts are anchored, is delightful to see and so French. 10 Km from the House is also the Medieval town of Dol-de-Bretagne which has a market every Sat morning.

GOLF: The house is located in the centre, and within very easy reach of no less than three international standard courses. To the east is 'Golf Les Ormes', this is a fabulous 18 hole, par 72,5822m course set mostly in woods, with water obstacles. The clubhouse is in a château where you can drink & dine. For the ladies who don't want to play there is a spa, swimming pool, massages, and beauty treatment rooms to pamper yourself. Only 8km west of Dinard, 15 km west of St.Malo, is Dinard Golf Club, located at St. Briac sur Mer, this is an 18 hole, 5620 yard course on the coastal cliff tops, and the 2nd oldest in France. Finally, to the south between St.Malo & Rennes is ' Golf du Tronchet, here there are in fact 2 courses, both extremely popular with UK Based golfers. There is a 9 hole, par 35,2646 yard, and an 18 hole, par 72, 6101 yard course. Happy days!

For those who love History, Dressing up, Pagaents and a feeling of being in the 'Medieval past' Biannually the 'FETE DU RAMPARTS' is enacted within the walls of Medieval Dinan'. The locals and some visitors dress in very original custumes (which are passed down from one generation to another) and wander the narrow cobble stoned streets of Dinan. You rub sholders with beggers, soldiers, monks, knights on their skirted horses with their ladies riding side-saddle behind. Hunters with ther horses and hounds, and so much more. With the backdrop of Medieval Dinan It, is like waking up on a film set, and expecting Robin Hood to ride by (except you are in France of course!)..

They have Jousting and battles, and all sorts of things to see and do. There is a medieval village set up where the people that participate sleep, eat, and indeed live over the weekend.

There are many stalls where you can buy (maybe for the children) plastic Armour, swords etc. and the cafe's, bars and restaurants in the narrow streets, with flags hanging overhead,are laid out as in medieval times with tressel tables, bales of straw to sit on, and wenches serving the food and drink of that time.DON'T FORGET THE CAMERA.

The weekend is around 21st July. Go to google and look up Fete du Ramparts. Dinan.France

About Anni / John

Anni / John purchased this farmhouse in 1990

Why Anni / John chose La Gouesniere

We fell in love with the age and character of the property, the beams and fire places. The fact its in a village with all amenities close by and so near the beaches. In fact so central to airport and ports and with lots of historic townes with in easy reach.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Olde worlde charm but modern facilities, loads of space .

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful Cottage full of character. Fully equipped with everything you would need for a relaxing holiday. There is a small garden with plenty of outdoor seating and even a BBQ. Close to all the major tourist attractions, and the gold course at Ormes was worth a visit.

The owners are very helpful and quick to reply to messages.

The property is quirky, showing lots of character as is to be expected in a 300 year old house. The rooms are large and spacious giving everyone plenty of space. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large and well appointed.

Avery relaxing and enjoyable holiday had by all the family

Wonderful Area of Brittany

  • 2 of 5
Charming 300 year old farmhouse in a small quiet village. It appears to have been remodeled about 20 years ago and not updated since. Furnishings are tired and some of the linens are of poor quality. The owner is pleasant to deal with and has local support people who are responsive and effective. The area is rural and unspoiled, wonderful access to the beaches, coast GR 34 walking trail and fresh seafood in Cancale and all along the coast. There is a Michelin one star restaurant down the road. Mt St Michel is 40 minutes drive and the landing beaches of WW2 are worth the two hour drive to visit.

Owner's Response: This reviewer and Party were Americans from Denver, Colorado, and as such are undoubtedly used to living in much more modern properties and therefore perhaps unused to the quirkiness and foibles of a property that is almost 300 years old!
We purchased the house some 24 years ago and have constantly made improvements to it where necessary during the interim period. Over the last three seasons we have had double glazed units fitted to all front windows and a semi fitted kitchen installed. The dining table and chairs were new last year as were most of the beds, including the pull out "click clack" bed. All bed linen,bath and hand towels are new for this Season, and whilst not having been purchased from Harrods are indeed Ikea's finest!

A vero cozy house in the St Malo countryside

  • 4 of 5
My friends and I had a really good stay during the last Route du Rock music festival. This small countryhouse is very conveniently located closed to St Malo, and we had a relaxing time in this house. I wish you to stay here!

avis sur la ferme La Gouesnière

  • 1 of 5
Bonjour,

Nous avons séjournée une semaine dans cette ferme.

Points positifs: la surface conforme à la description (couchage de 8 personnes sans problème), le village charmant, le voisin très gentil qui fait tout pour aider en l'absence des propriétaires, le calme.

Points d'amélioration: propreté relative (des mites dans les chambres), une notice d'accueil en anglais uniquement (gênant pour les non anglophones dommage cela prive les propriétaires de clients supplémentaires), pas de notice pour le four que nous n'avons pas pu utiliser durant tout le séjour, 3 tv dans la maison mais une seule fonctionne et elle ne capte que les chaînes anglaises (gênant également pour un enfant qui n'est pas bilingue), lecteur DVD ne lit pas les DVD français, des prises dénudées dans les escaliers, chauffe eau au gaz de la salle de bain s'arrête quand on prend sa douche (rageant l'eau devient d'un coup glacée !) maison assez mal insonorisée.

Only 8 km West of Dinard,15 km West of St.Malo is Dinard Golf Club,located at St.Briac- Sur- Mer. This is an 18 hole, 5,620 yard Course on the coastal cliff tops,and the 2nd oldest Course in the whole of France.
