About The Owner

After spending many years working in the UK and renovating in France, with the birth of our first child, we finally decided to trade in the city life for rural France. We opened a little bar and restaurant, and have spent our free days restoring our house with a great deal of consideration to its original features. We love space and design, and we have favoured where possible eco-environmental building methods. Now with two children and a popular little business, we enjoy living in the center of the village, where we are in touch with local life and with the opportunity to escape to the countryside or coast.

Our family has been living in this area for over 25 years, and so we know it well, and can recommend sightseeing, places to go and things to do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Guémené-sur-Scorff

This house has so much charm. Its quirkiness & odd little spaces that extend right out to an open back garden are all such wonderful discoveries that one would never expect from a house in the main street of our little village. We think it’s perfectly placed for those who are in need of rest and recuperation with many little quite spots to hide away, and with the option of village life right on your door step.

What makes this house unique

Step outside the front door and enjoy an evening out, and no taxi home!

Completely your own space, no sharing facilities with any other guests

Two back gardens

Yoga studio, which can be used as a childs play room; a music room, an extra bedroom for sleeping.

Luxurious bathroom

Centred in the main street, guest can access restaurants, bars, shops on foot. Guéméne is a pretty little village surrounded by wooded hillsides. Dating back to the 15th century with its historic monument and picturesque buildings it provides culture and interest to many visitors every year. Its most famous for its ‘Andouille’ and to celebrate, there is a big Andouille festival at the end of August each year with wonderful Breton music and dancing.

The Scorff Valley is rich, with protected natural and historical heritage, & has 400km of marked trails to discover, running between woodland and river.

There are a number of beautiful walks to the surrounding countryside right from the doorstep. The beautiful beaches along the south Brittany coastline are only a 45minute drive away & the north coast is just over an hour away. Lac du Guerledan is only 30minutes up the road & offers an array of activity from water sports, bike riding to magnificent walks. The impressive Abbey de Bon Repos with its lovely relaxing Sunday market is also just a 30 minutes drive. Perfect for bike riding the Nante Best Canal is within 20minutes bike ride away, as too is the La Vélodyssée in Pontivy. In Langoelan visit Lac Du Cordu with a nature board walk attracting many birds and other wildlife. Enjoy the cafe, fishing on the lake or simply take a stroll or cycle around its shores. Visit the charming little artist town of Pont Aven, with its many galleries, restaurants and nature walks, and from there take a boat trip down the Aven river. Visit the beautiful beaches of southern Brittany- our favourites, Port Manech, Nevez, Guidel, Le Pouldu. Visit the Carnac stones, an exceptionally dense collection of megalithic sites around the village of Carnac. Walk around Huelgoat with its impressive natural setting among the vestiges of the ancient forest that once covered inland Brittany. Take day trips out to one the little islands off the coast of Southern Brittany, our favourite is Il De Groix a 40min boat ride away from Lorient. Or venture out west to the pretty seaside town of Douarnenez. There are so many other little adventures we would be happy to advise you on.

You do need your own transport. Guemene s/scorff is 45mins from the closest airport and train station in Lorient; 1h45 mins to Rennes and Dinar airports; 1h45 mins to St Marlo ferry port. Buses are available to Guémené from Lorient, Rennes and Pontivy- however are not so frequent.

A week in Brittany

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as it was in the photos and everything you could need was supplied. The area was perfect for visiting Brittany and we were lucky with the weather. We made the mistake of shopping before we got there as there was already he basics there like tea, coffee, cleaning stuff and toilet rolls. We will definitely recommend and would go again it was lovely holiday.

Stunning character house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful and charmingly renovated house with lots of quirky features combined with luxurious touches. A great place for a relaxing and indulgent holiday and the owners' adjoining restaurant is not to be missed as the food is excellent and good value. Ash and Monique are wonderful hosts who make it their business to ensure your stay is memorable. We had a wonderful holiday and have no hesitation in recommending this to others.

Beautiful, clean cottage. Owners really helpful and kind. Would definitely go back. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week away with the kids. The owners, Monique and Ash were so helpful. Told us exactly where to go that would be fun for the kids. On a few occasions visited a nearby lake that also had a small beach and a lovely restaurant. Loved it there. Also the cottage was a good central location to nearby beaches. The cottage itself was very nicely set out, clean and well equipped. Would definitely go back again.

This accomodation is highly recommendable. It is tidy, furbished with much love. and outstanding with respect to its flair. The hosts are lovely people and their adjacent restaurant is also truly worth a visit. We had a wonderful time there and enjoyed both the house as well as the landscape with so many beautiful beaches. Many thanks.

Beautifully decorated clean and tidy house.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful old building that has been sympathetically decorated to the very highest level. Loads of space, spotlessly clean and all the mod cons you could wish for whilst on holiday. Loved the roll top bath and walk in wet room shower.

lovely hosts who were helpful and very pleasant to deal with.

Overall a great place in a lovely spot in a nice town.
