About the property

Manoir de Cleuyou

The castle-like Manoir de Cleuyou, not far from the sea, is a refuge for relaxation and the magic of a historic city with the comfort of today. The salon is a place for good conversations, which were inspired by the “Sainte du Cleuyou”, a painting from the artist Silvia Willkens. The small congress room, the medieval kitchen, the cosy fireplace oven, the covered summer grill and the sun terrace provide for the community in the Manoir. Privacy is provided by the concept of the five spacious apartments with different living rooms, 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a personal kitchenette. In the east wing you will find the apartment “Le Nid du Marin” with a ship-theme and romantic attic space, “La Suite du Baron” the view of the park and the dreamy castle flowers, the “Dome des Etoiles” lets you see the sky under the towers with its two bedrooms right next to the airy roof apartment “Mansarde de I’Ecrivain”, which makes you have good thoughts.

Travelling by plane and train: The airfield Quimper-Pluguffan can be reached in 10/15 minutes. From here, you can fly to Paris. (Paris Orly, Transfer Charles de Gaulle for all other destinations) A train ride is very comfortable, because the train from Paris rides to the end station in Quimper. From Germany, you can book the private train 'Thales', which uses the normal rail network, however, it is considerably less expensive by an early booking (to Paris). Thales can only be booked online. The Deutsche Bahn does not have this train in their service. Vehicles can also be rented from the airport or train station.

Excursions to the sea are worth it, to the art city of Pont Aven, where also Gaugin lived temporarily, to Locronan with its intact medieval city centre, St. Marine with harbour and bistros on the shore, Benodet, the old spa on the sea, which can be reached with the steam boat (the Odet down to the open sea), Pont Croix on the cape near the picturesque city of Audieren on the sea.

Bretagne Finistere natural: The Finistere has benefits compared to other European costs due to its location at the 'end of the world'. It is an ecological and cultural land and has developed different options in regards to this. The coast region of the nearby Cape Sizun allows for hours of walks in the natural, wild coastal landscape directly by the sea with the adventurous high waves while the moon is changing. The Unesco protected area offers an unforgettable natural experience with small harbours without any direct construction on the coast. The Bretons always protect their own language and have introduced this into their schools as a subject. They are very proud of their wonderful churches and chapels, often from the 15th century, which belong to one of the most beautiful cultures in Europe. In the antique stores you can still find Breton furniture. Market halls and markets with natural products of the land belong to the specific image of Finistere.

City - culture: Quimper: Quimper is rightfully called 'La Ville d'arts et l'Histoire' with its theatres, museums, art halls on the Academie des Beaux Arts, its cafes and chocolate stores. In the Theatre de Cornouaille, there are regular theatre days, along with the ensemble from Pina Bausch. In the historic construction, wonderfully complemented by timeless architecture, there is a comprehensive library. The Musée des Beaux Arts has large exhibitions (for example, Picasso) and a collection of Breton artists. Gaugin lives in Pont Aven. The history in the Musée Breton on the impressive cathedral reaches back to the Celtic times. The music festivals in Quimper, the legendary jazz festival and the concerts in the churches in the nearby Cape Sizun are unique. Plozevet has an annual folk festival du Monde. The Festival du Cornouaille 19.7 - 24.7.2011 is known with a lot of concerts at different locations.

Traumhafter Urlaub in historischem Gemäuer

  • 5 of 5

Auf unserer Reise durch die Bretagne haben wir auch im Manoir du Cleuyou eine Woche verbracht und unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Nicht nur als Ausgangsbasis für viele tolle Ausflüge eignet sich dieses außergewöhnliche, gepflegte Feriendomizil, sondern auch, um die Ruhe des herrlichen, weitläufigen Parks mit altem Baumbestand zu genießen oder um die Füße im Bach zu kühlen. Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir herzlich empfangen und mit allerlei Köstlichkeiten verwöhnt. Wer hier Urlaub macht, trifft auf großzügige Gastgeber, die ihren Gästen ihre Liebe zur Bretagne vermitteln, ihnen stets mit Rat und Tat zur Seite stehen und die einem immer das Gefühl vermitteln, willkommen zu sein. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen und haben dieses Domizil auch schon wärmstens weiterempfohlen.

Für jeden etwas, für alle etwas Besonderes.

  • 5 of 5

Als Gast des Manoir du Cleuyou ist man Selbstbucher und somit sein eigener Animateur. Morgens steht man vor der Frage: und heute? Wäre man beispielsweise Surfer – die Antwort wäre leicht: Auf zum Pointe de la Torche (35 km nach Westen) und hinein in die erste Welle. Wäre man Flaneur – auf nach Quimper und den Tag in einem der Cafes an der Markthalle beginnen (5 km ins Stadtzentrum). Wäre man Wanderer – auf zum Weg GR 34, der die gesamte Küste des Finistère umspannt. Wäre man Sonnenanbeter – auf nach Benodet und den Verlockungen eines Badeortes erliegen (17 km nach Süden). Wäre man Golfer – auf nach La Forêt-Fouesnant (15 km nach Süden) und den dortigen Meisterschaftsplatz genießen. Wäre man einfach nur entspannt, dann liebte man es, Stunden im Manoir du Cleuyou zu verbringen, einem charaktervollen Gebäude mit individuell eingerichteten Ferienwohnungen, einem Salon mit Flügel sowie einem traumhaften Park mit uralten Bäumen und geheimnisvollen Plätzen. In Le Cleuyou ist man zu Gast bei Ursula Bertram und Werner Preißing, deren Tatkraft, Kreativität und Gastfreundschaft diesen Ort zu einem Besonderen machen.

Wohnen unterm Sternenhimmel

  • 5 of 5

Aus dem winterlichen Saarland mit dem Auto kommend, erwartete uns hinter dem schwarzen eisernen Tor des Manoir nicht nur ein sicherer und grosszügiger Parkplatz, sondern auch der Frühling mit zahllosen blühenden Kamelienbüschen entlang der Auffahrt zum Manoir. Unsere Räumlichkeiten im Dome des Étoiles ließen keine Wünsche offen, liebevoll, geschmackvoll und hochwertig möbliert, fühlten wir uns selbst wie Schlossherren. Die sehr angenehme unaufdringliche Betreuung durch die Eigentümer machte uns schnell vertraut mit den Annehmlichkeiten des Manoir, seines märchenhaften Parks und der geschichtsträchtigen Umgebung. Zum Frühstück frische Croissant aus Ergué Gerberique ließen den Tag vollkommen beginnen. Ausflüge ans nahe Meer, zu den zahllosen Menhiren und Chateaux in der Umgebung begeisterten uns jeden Tag aufs Neue und wir begannen uns Schatzsucher zu fühlen. Ein einzigartiger Urlaub der ein unauslöschliches Wohlbefinden und den Wunsch einer schnellstmöglichen Wiederkehr hinterließ.

LE DOME DES ÉTOILES, im luftigen Turmgiebel

  • 5 of 5

It is a dream, a jewel - perfect to the detail! No matter if you stroll through the magnificent, spacious park with a natural book and a mill, chat with the owners in the ancient/modern kitchen of the main building, or follow the moon and the stars through the skylight from your comfortable bed - it´s perfect.

Ein ganz besonderer Ort

  • 5 of 5

Die gepflegten Appartements sind bis ins Detail liebevoll ausgestattet und verbinden unkomplizierte Funktionalität mit Fundstücken historischer regionaler Interieurs, aktuellem Design und zeitgenössischer Kunst. Pointiertes Lokalkolorit versprüht Begeisterung für dieses Anwesen, seine in regionale Identität eingebundene Geschichte und atmet zugleich aufgeweckte Zeitgenossenschaft. Nicht nur das Bett von Sarah Bernhardt oder das unkonventionelle Turmzimmer, sondern auch der weitläufige Park ist ideal, um aus dem Alltag auszusteigen, aufzutanken und sich für neue Ideen zu öffnen. Ein Ort zum verlieben! Und zum Ausschwärmen, denn mit der Mobilität eines Autos ist Cleuyou nicht nur idealer Ausgangspunkt für kulturhistorische Erkundungen, sondern auch für Ausflüge zu weitläufigen Sandstränden oder in eines der bezaubernden bretonischen Bistros. So erlebnisreich diese Ausflüge für uns waren, haben wir es immer wieder genossen in unser Feriendomizil zurückzukehren. Die Vermieter leben im gleichen Anwesen, aber bei diesen beiden Menschen ist es wirklich ein Glück sie zu treffen. Ein ganz besonderer Ort, der zu neuen Ideen inspiriert. Eine davon ist wohl unweigerlich baldmöglichst wiederzukommen, wir haben unseren nächsten Aufenthalt jedenfalls schon reserviert.
