La Ville au Tady stands in over 1 acre of gardens. It is a traditional Breton longère, or long-house, built 1868. It has been fully renovated while retaining its charm and character.
Located in a small hamlet in Southern Brittany, the local village of Guegon is just a few minutes drive through scenic country lanes. Within the village you will find several bars, a general store and the essential boulangerie for fresh baked baguettes and croissants.
The area is perfect for exploring on foot or cycling, with a designated cycle route passing through the hamlet. The medieval town of Josselin with its famous chateau, 17th Century buildings, bars and restaurants is an easy 10 minute drive. Brittany’s largest inland lake is located just outside Josselin, with swimming and water sport facilities. Superb beaches are to be found all along the nearby Morbihan coast which is said to have 365 small Islands, one to explore for each day of the year.
There are many interesting small villages and larger towns in the region. Auray is a lovely old town with lots of shops and restaurants, an old port and an excellent Sunday market. Vannes is a large town on the edge of the Gulf of Morbihan with an old quarter bustling with good restaurants and small shops. Excellent markets are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays and a famous jazz festival in July.
