Lucile is French and Barry is English. We came across Le Gohic by accident in 2010 and started an adventure that we are loving. Our grown up family in the UK visit as often as they can, so there are not too many things that we miss from our many years spent in the UK.
Mrs Lucile Skinner purchased this cottage in 2011
On arrival, many of our guests tell us that the website does not do justice to the beauty of the hamlet and its surroundings.
On departure many of our guests tell us that they wish they had booked two weeks, and could take our dog back home with them!
Incredible, fantastic, surprising, perfect!!!! Just some of the words we'd use to describe this magical hamlet! You know when you see something online and then are sceptical whether it will be as good as it sounds? - Well this was better than we could have ever imagined. The setting is idyllic and the owners are so warm and welcoming.
There were three couples in our party and we all decided to make our way there using different forms of transport (top gear challenge style!) One couple (no kids) decided to go by motorbike on the overnight ferry to St Maolo, the other couple (with a little boy of 21 months) decided to eurostar to Paris and then train and hire a car, and we (two children - 3 and a half years and 21months) decided to drive! The journeys were surprisingly easy!
With three different couples the accomodation provided everything you might need (and even more with extra high chairs, baby baths and playpens) La Marie was just perfect and the facilities and grounds were wonderful and provided everyone with something to enjoy. The games room was well equiped with all sorts of great games for the evening in front of the crackling fire and there was a great cinema room.
We so enjoyed our fresh croissants and bagettes that were delivered in the mornings and just cannot believe the incredible weather and fabulous holiday we all had. We would highly recommend Le Gohic and would like to thank Lucille and Barry for their warm hospitality (which even included windscreen washing fairies!!!!) We will definitely return... ;0) Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
We had an absolutely wonderful holiday at Le Gohic with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 year old granddaughter. Our cottage, L’Ecurie, was like home from home with everything needed to hand. We swam in the pool, had lunch on the patio, rocked in the hammock, and relaxed by a log fire on an evening. Lack of light pollution meant that the stars were an amazing sight to see. Just perfect!
The hamlet is truly picturesque and so tranquil, as though from another era, and we extend our compliments to Robin and Sheila for making Le Gohic such a special place. Their website is an excellent insight into the properties, facilities and surroundings.
The beaches we visited were beautifully clean and unspoilt, and surrounded by lovely villages and countryside. We took a boat trip from Vannes around the Gulf of Morbihan, and visited the well preserved chateau at Josselin before walking by the Nantes-Brest canal, highlighting the beauty of Southern Brittany.
If only we could have stayed another week ...
We spent the week here with our daughter and my parents and loved being in such a beautiful place in the countryside. The cottage was incredibly well equipped and the hamlet was perfect for small children.
Sheila and Robin are excellent hosts and made us feel totally at home. Fresh croissant and pain au chocolat delivered to your door in the morning was a delight!
We will certainly be returning and would recommend it wholeheartedly to other families.
We had an absolutely fantastic holiday. Le Gohic is such a lovely and beautiful place to stay. The kids had a great time and loved it there. It was so nice to find somewhere that is so child-friendly but also a lovely, tranquil place for adults to enjoy as well. We are already planning to come back again next year! Thanks for such a wonderful holiday.
We hired the Hamlet of Le Gohic for a family celebration and without exception everyone thoroughly enjoyed the facilities from age 17 weeks to 70 years!
The standard of the cottages, their presentation and equipment are of the highest order with everything one could need for a holiday. Forget the old concept of the French farmhouse gite - these are high class properties beautifully maintaintained in beautiful surroundings.
The booking process was very straightforward and the Owners were extremely helpful in arranging other activities for us in the area. Indeed Sheila and Robin are on site, always there to help, but never intrusive.
We can unreservedly recommend Le Gohic.
We stayed for a week at Le Gohic in La Mairie - 4 adults and three children under 5. We all had a absolutely fabulous holiday. The piccies on the website do not do the hamlet justice - and frankly I thought the piccies were gorgeous! Our cottage was immaculately presented with lovely French furniture and all the kitchen utensils you could want and need. We had one baby with us and there was nothing you needed to bring from home - steriliser, toddler proof crockery, bottles, baby bath, - absolutely everything included (even Cbeebies!). Our cottage had THREE outside dining area's with a huge garden and lovely brick barbeque - it couldn't have been more perfect.
The hamlet itself is just beautiful - the location is perfect - surrounded by nothing but cows in the middle of nowhere and a good 10 minute drive to civilisation. The gardens are beautifully tended to and the owners such perfect attention to detail. We made daily use of the herb garden! The games room and den area are superb with loads of games to play with. We made a lot of use of the poker set when the kids were in bed!
We used the bikes available at Le Gohic to cycle along the River Blavet - an absolute must if you come here.
Robin and Sheila (and Millie the dog) are the perfect hosts - very unobtrusive but completely invaluable for the early morning croissant and baguette run! We were very disappointed with Robin's day off from the trip to the local fabulous boulangerie! I hope to see them all again and without question we WILL be back.
Our recommendations: We went to Vannes - a beautiful old city about 45 mins drive away - Lovely harbour with expensive boats and gorgeous architecture in the old town. Beach - Trinite-sur-mer near Carnac quiet and sandy. Nice market in Auray.
Our only disappoinment was that the local creperie (about 15 min walk away - luckily all downhill on the way there!) was closed as the owners were away on holiday!! Next time. However luckily we found another really good creperie about 15 mins drive in Bubry so had no crepe withdrawls! We had fantastic 4 course lunch menu for 10 Euros - bargain!
As much as I would like to keep Le Gohic as my own little secret - I can't! This is the first review I have ever felt compelled to write about a holiday cottage anywhere. Thank you Robin and Sheila.
For those travelling from the tunnel, we stayed overnight at a farm (Le Grande Bouverie) about 20 miles north east of Rouen in the village of La Belliere. Would recommend.
Le Gohic lies down a long private drive in quiet and tranquil countryside, amongst green rolling hills and lush wooded valleys. However, the hamlet is not at all isolated and there is an abundance of picturesque towns and villages close by. Just a leisurely stroll down the lane is the local bar and creperie where you will receive a very warm welcome. The village of Quistinic with boulangerie, chemist, mini-grocers, post office and bars is five kms away. The nearest town, Baud, has a larger choice of shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and banks, and is an easy fifteen minute drive. The bigger town of Pontivy is 20 mins away and the modern city of Lorient, is 25 mins drive. The nearest recommended sandy beach is just 30 mins away at Port Louis. A bit further on, you will find a more a more abundant choice of beautiful white sandy beaches, fashionable seaside resorts and secluded rocky coves.
Five minutes drive from Le Gohic is the River Blavet, beautifully quiet and hardly used. Here you will find some of the best coarse fishing in Brittany. If you prefer walking or cycling, you can follow the river towpath for many miles, stopping at the occasional bar or cafe along the way.
