TRADITIONAL MAISON DE MAITRE, SLEEPS 12 WITH SECLUDED GARDEN AND HEATED POOL

Guenin Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Secluded house with pool, 6 bedrooms,3 bathrooms, sleeps 12

Leinprat is a traditional Breton farmhouse set in a delightfully tranquil valley 30 minutes from the south coast of Brittany. The large secluded garden, with a fenced and heated swimming pool is ideal for both children and adults. Leinprat can sleep up to 12 people in 3 double and 3 twin bedrooms, with 3 bathrooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen, updated in 2014, and an attractive living/dining room with granite fireplace, wood burning stove and French doors onto a large south-facing terrace, with table, chairs and barbecue.

Leinprat is less than a mile from the pretty village of Guenin, which has bakers, general store, butchers, post office, church and several lively bars. The house is only 3 minutes from Baud, where there is a good selection of restaurants, supermarkets, shops and a weekly market. The property is within easy reach of the Gulf of Morbihan, the historic cities of Josselin, Auray and Vannes, five excellent golf courses, numerous walks and cycle paths, and popular fishing rivers.

The Local Area: Leinprat is situated in a diverse and beautiful region of Southern Brittany. The scenic coastline of the Gulf of Morbihan and the Quiberon Peninsula are surrounded by rich and varied countryside and charming medieval towns and villages. You can soak up the Celtic culture at 'Pardons and Fest Noz', the local Celtic festivals, or enjoy the buzz of the daily markets with an excellent selection of fresh produce. There are plenty of opportunities to sample the wonderful restaurants, local seafood and wines from all over France, in addition to the Breton specialities, such as crepes and galettes.

The area is ideal for cyclists. Safe cycling for children along the banks of the Beautiful river Blavet.

Outdood private heated pool available May-September.

Ask when booking for lower price for second or third weeks.

Places to Visit: You can visit the medieval walled town of Vannes, home of the Ducs de Bretagne, the bustling market town of Auray with the picturesque 17th Century Port of St. Goustan, or the quaint medieval town of Josselin, famous for its riverside chateau. At Carnac you can experience the mystery of the largest site of standing stones in Western Europe, a marvel to rival Stonehenge, and then move along the coast to Trinite Sur Mer, the heart of Southern Brittany's sailing community, where you can enjoy the atmosphere of the regular regattas, and the lovely choice of seafood restaurants.

The coast of Brittany offers a superb choice of beaches with endless stretches of white sand or sheltered bays with rock pools. From the fashionable Carnac Plage to the unspolit Erdeven and the wild Cote Sauvage at Quiberon, there is something for everyone. A full range of water sports are offered along the coast, such as sailing, wind surfing, para surfing, jet skiing and diving.

Activities: There are many established walking, cycling and horse riding circuits providing a relaxing way to enjoy the best of the Breton countryside. Local riding stables offer leisurely treks through forests, and the French Cycling Federation has awarded the Valley of the Blavet official recognition, with new tracks and circuits being created. The local tourist centres can provide maps and routes or organised guided walks.

Enjoy 18 holes on one of the 5 quality golf courses in the area. 'Formule Golf' offers excellent value passes giving you unlimited golf for 3 or more consecutive days on all 5 courses.

The River Blavet and its tributaries offer miles of unspoilt river banks for fishing, and the Blavet is reputed to be one of the best coarse fishing rivers in France. Permits are easily available and reasonably priced. There are also canoe/kayak facilities on the River Blavet which offer both lessons and hire.

I first saw this house while visiting my parents. It was an unfinished project which needed repairs and modernisation. I fell in love with the location and privacy. I always find it very peaceful and relaxing when I stay, normally 3 or 4 times a year.

The half acre secure and private garden with your own heated pool and large terrace are lovely in the summer. The wood burning stove makes the living room very cosy the rest of the year

Family holiday in Leinprat

  • 5 of 5
i would like to begin by saying that the picture on the website does not do the property justice. The property was lovely in the respect of the stone finish and the surroundings. My youngest son (12) was never out the pool which was clean and a nice temperature during the week. Outwith the pool there was the facility to play other games as in french bowls, skittles and ball games due to the size of the gardens (bowls, skittles and balls were all on the property). The house was cleaned to a very high standard and midway through our week a man came in to clean the pool, cut the grass and ask if everything was to our satisfaction. The village itself is the France of old, very quiet, with a nice pattisarie, couple of nice bars and within a mile walk. The main town is baud which i have to say has everything you need, supermarkets to restaraunts and i thought not to badly priced. Over the duration of our week we never ate out at night because of the weather and the facilities in the house we always had a barbeque or made a meal in the house. Supermarkets we found overall were priced similar to back home but the standard of food i thought was better in france. I have visited Paris a few times and to be honest i was not taken by the people, maybe because everything seems to be going at 100mph but in baud they could not have been nicer, i got the impression that people would go there to retire. We had a couple of days away which we enjoyed, one day we went to Carnac which is a seaside resort with arcades, restaraunts and a lovely beach which the kids loved, the other day we had a trip to Vannes which has alot of history and architecture and a good market.
My whole experience with dealing with the owner, the house and the holiday was second to none, i would, in actual fact i have already recommended leinprat to my family and friends and there is a very good chance we will go back out in the near future. It is a place that your holiday can be as busy or as quiet as you would like. I was there with another 5 adults, 4 children (16,15, and 2 at 12), and they always say that if your kids are happy then you are happy and this was certainly the case, if they were not in the pool they had the option with the games and at night they had all the dvds to watch (which were there),
Without hesitation i would recommend leinprat, my only advise would be to make sure you have a car ,

Owner's Response: An excellent review. I am pleased that they enjoyed their holiday. It is always good to know that guests like it enough to recommend it to their familly and friends. I holiday there at least twice a year and agree that the locals are very friendly and helpful. This year Iate out twice in Baud and both meals were excellent.

Lovely clean and well maintained villa and chill out pool. Good for visits to the beaches in the south, all local markets, walking areas are close by, as well as busy little towns. The week passed really quickly with loads of picturesque places visited, that had excellent restaurants. Left feeling very relaxed, will return soon.

An excellent house and grounds for a very peaceful

  • 5 of 5
The property was lovely easily accommodating 10 of us. The pool was a delight it was a job to drag ourselves away for days out. We were lucky that the cherry tree was fruiting so had fresh picked cherries every day.
Brittany is beautiful with loads of old towns and villages to visit all within an easy drive. The owner told us about the local "Routier" which we tried for lunch 10.50Euros for 4 courses and wine sat in amongst the French workers,an experience not to be missed.
We will definitely be back.

Leinprat

  • 4 of 5
My family & I enjoyed our visit to Leinprat and we thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. The accommodation is spacious and although a little dated it is very comfortable. The impressive DVD collection made for some enjoyable late evening entertainment and the outdoor pool made for some long lazy days enjoying the June/July sunshine of which there was plenty in 2013. The location is very good as it is quite near the local villages and the main motorway routes. It was also possible to travel to other local towns like Vannes and Aurray without having to venture onto the busy motorways and these notable towns of interest were drivable in around 30mins. We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and we would certainly consider using Leinprat again as a holiday destination. Shaun, the owner was extremely professional to deal with and we left our holiday feeling fully recharged.

We had a wonderfull time at Leinprat. The house was very clean when we arrived and has all the facilities we expected. It is very comfortable and ideal with the heated pool and fenced garden for families with kids. The house is in a very quiet area, but not far away from lovely towns to visit (half an hour drive). There are lot of activities in the neighbourhood for people who like a sports vacation as well. One week was way to short to do all the things we wanted!

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5
3 families with 3 under 2 year olds was also going to be a challenge, but the house suited us perfectly. Gated swimming pool meant we never had to worry about anyone making a dash for the pool, shaded grass area meant we could put the paddling pool up and watch them splash about! The added bonus of a field full of cows opposite made it a delight for the children. Location was near enough the shops but far enough away that the hustle of daily life didn't touch you. House was equipped well, clean and had all the mod cons.
Take fly spray as they were everywhere and the top room can get really hot!! We had a wonderful time, plenty of space so you weren't ontop of each other. Beaches are about 30mins away were really clean and fun to be on and all had toilets and a ice cream cart nearby! Supermarket was 5 mins drive from the house.

We are already planning our trip back!!
