HOUSE WITH POOL, SET IN BEAUTIFUL PRIVATE GARDENS, SURROUNDED BY WOODLAND.

Saint-Guyomard House Rental Photos and Description

The house has 3 bedrooms, bathroom, separate shower room, sleeps 6/7

In an elevated position above the Claie valley, between Ploermel and Vannes, (an area of outstanding natural beauty), and only 10 min drive from picturesque Malestroit, this sympathetically restored stone farmhouse, formerly a working farm, retains many original features, with oak beams, exposed stone, and a huge Breton fireplace with Clearview wood burning stove (winter use only). The property is finished to a high standard and offers quality accommodation. Resting in a small hamlet, with views over the wooded hills to the valley beyond, the house has 5000 m² of well-managed grounds surrounded by woodland, with a short walk down to the banks of the Claie. It is an ideal location for nature lovers, the area boasts an abundance of wildlife, including chevreil, the local wild deer, buzzards, sparrow hawks, & many other species. There are many walks, nature trails and bridle paths making it a perfect base for ramblers and cyclists.

Further details: Vannes is known as the gateway to the gulf, and has a number of boat trips around its numerous islands. To either side of Vannes the coastline is a mixture of seaside towns with broad beaches, coastal walks and more intimate, sheltered coves. To the west is Carnac and the famous standing stones, La Trinite-sur-mer (the best beaches in the area) and its large marina. Nearby there is a market almost every day, including the famous, covered market hall at Questembert. The recently completed voie-verte, runs through Malestroit and has 50 Km of safe cycling/walking. Lac-au-duc (15 min) has a water-sports centre and golf course. It is also a great area for fishing, permits are cheap and readily available. The area is also famous for music and dance, having many festivals. There is free, outdoor, live music on Friday evenings, in Malestroit, throughout the Summer. The Breton Resistance Museum is five minutes drive, and there are many other attractions/facilities within easy reach.

IDYLLIC PEACEFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at this beautiful hamlet to be welcomed by the owners who were very friendly and gave us a tour of the property. We were very impressed by the size of the house and outside areas. Everything was as described. The house is very spacious and beautifully presented and equipped with everything we needed. There is a wide variety of videos, books and board games just in case the weather is not that good. The outside patio area is charming and perfect for eating alfresco, and the orchard and pool area is delightful and was very welcome in the hot weather we had during our stay. The surrounding area is very peaceful and quiet yet just 10 minutes drive away there a several little towns with all the amenities you need like supermarkets shops restaurants markets. There is also a nearby lake which is safe for swimming and the beach is only 30 minutes away. We would definitely recommend this property for a relaxing get away from it all holiday

A TRANQUIL EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
What a hidden gem this holiday home is! Have just returned from a relaxing and tranquil holiday in this beautiful location. The photos do not do the property justice. We are a family of six with four boys, so were looking for a property that ticked all the boxes for all their ages! 9,8, 3 and 2. The house is well equipped with a big kitchen and dining area, which opens out onto a lovely safe garden area in which the baby and toddler were safe. Off of this via a gate there is access to an amazing orchard where the swimming pool is housed, this was ideal for our two older children to play. The geese, hens and cow added to the ambience. The owners were very kind and made you feel very welcome even down to the collection of books and videos available in the house. Great places to visit such as the lake in Ploermel and beautiful beach at Damagan. A great place to get away from it all and we would love to return.

THE PERFECT FAMILY RETREAT FOR FOODIES!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed here twice now, both times in late July / early August and we have had an excellent experience: I would heartily recommend this property to any family with young children. Who couldn't be captivated by the rural idyll, where you can watch a cow saunter past the kitchen window (!) or study the hens as they wander in the orchard?

The property is well-maintained and to me is nicer than the photos here give the impression. As a family of four, we were really very comfortable. The kitchen is a real feature - not just the size but it really is exceptionally well-equipped. Which, given the property's proximity to the fabulous Monday market at Questembert and Thursday market in Malestroit, means that anyone with a strong interest in food will enjoy this place to the full. Like others, we had lunches out but generally had dinner in - ideal with small children.

The garden is very pretty - it even inspired us to grow Evening Primrose back at home. The orchard is lovely, the views spectacular (especially from the largest of the bedrooms) and the pool is ideal after a long hot day's activity at the beach or the Lac au Duc in Ploermel - which is superb for children.

John and Maureen have been gracious hosts, particularly kind to our children (chatty six year old twins). As per the listing, they are there when you need them.

There's a good selection of leaflets from the local attractions and maps of the area in the house. Also a first rate selection of books and videos (including for children) for any rainy day, along with some board games.

The surrounding countryside is very pretty - Josselin is a really quaint little town with a lovely castle; Lizio is a nice village and Malestroit has a really gentle vibe to it.

Expect to come back home refreshed, (if a little heavier!!), with a wistful thought or two of la belle France and hopes of "au revoir" rather than "goodbye". We would definitely go back.

GLORIOUSLY PEACEFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
A lovely old house in a hidden away hamlet with a great pool, garden, orchard, river and acres to roam in. A short drive to a couple of villages and towns whilst the beaches and towns of the Golfe de Morbihan are half an hour away. Thoroughly recommend this house for anyone looking for a family rural getaway with access to the beach.

IDYLLIC COTTAGE IN SMALL PRETTY HAMLET!

  • 5 of 5
Myself, husband, our daughter and her husband with their 2 year old child stayed for a week at the end of June 2008. The house was lovely and beautifully maintained, perfect for us all; even better than described with an extremely well equipped kitchen and lovely cosy large sitting-room. The 2 larger bedrooms were perfect for the adults and the third smaller one good for a couple of young children. We especially liked the sunny enclosed courtyard - excellent with small children, with the main large garden and pool just across a path and through a gate: this meant we didn't have to keep a constant eye on the Elsa. Even the pool which is freestanding means that small children couldn't accidentally fall in. An added plus for our granddaughter were the dogs, cats, chickens and cows! John and his wife gave a very good service - unobtrusive but at the same time very friendly and helpful when required. The area is very attractive with lots of great walks. There are lovely old towns only a short drive away. We were happy to eat in most nights, but if you want to eat out more often in the evening, then there are no restaurants really close by - the best bet is Vannes. We had some good lunches instead when sightseeing. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend and would be happy to return on another occasion. I think this property is perfect for a family with young children.
