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!
We have just returned from a fantastic week at Le Gohic. We were recommended the cottages by friends, and the reality lived up to their report. The cottages, pool and extensive child friendly grounds are very well presented and exceptionally well kept, cleaned and equiped. The four children (1-10 years old) had a great time, and all of them had lots of entertainment choices! My 4 year old can now swim!
The evening "quite" times were so relaxing, in a hammock or on the terrace. Le Gohic is in a very quite area but within easy reach of some great beaches. We visited Port Louis and Carnac which were lovely. The local Creparie is well worth a visit. On the way we stayed for a night at Dinan (close to St Malo) which is a great place and well worth a short visit.
Sheila's comprehensive web-site left us feeling well prepared, with the knowledge that we didn't have to take everything including the kitchen sink. The cottages would make an ideal stay as a couple, single family or a larger group. I honesty cannot think of anything negative to say, and would definately recommend Le Gohic to anybody.
Le Gohic is like something out of a fairytale. We just loved it. My husband and I and our three girls, along with 2 of my sisters and their husbands and their children stayed for two weeks in May 2009. Between us we had 8 children under the age of 5 and rented 3 of the cottages. It is a beautiful place. The cottages are all that they claim to be and more. They are immaculately clean and beautifully furnished with old and new pieces and very well equipped for family life. Sheila and Robin provided everything from baby baths to stair gates to cake and cider on our first night. They even arranged extra tables in one of our houses so we could all eat together. The grounds are extensive and the kids had a ball just running around and exploring. When they got tired of that they played in the sandpit, went on the swings, went swimming with us or just played with the many toys in the Club House. And it is so safe for them. Hardly a car to be seen. Just the odd tractor trundling down the road. The views of the countryside are breathtaking. In fact on arriving the first night after quite a long journey we could physically feel any stress melt away into the ground beneath us. We just relaxed immediately. The pool is perfect and so private. All we could hear around us was birdsong, crickets and the odd cow in the neighbouring farm. Everyone slept well. We ate well and drank well too with lovely restaurants and markets to visit. The local creperie is a must.
I can't recommend Le Gohic enough. One of my sister's actually said it was the best holiday she has ever had. We all rated it on our way home on the boat to Ireland and the lowest mark we gave was 8/10 but that was because we had rain - nothing to do with Le Gohic itself. Go there if you can. You will love it too. Thank you to Sheila and Robin for such a wonderful holiday.
The property is beautifully presented & has everything anyone might need for a very relaxing holiday. Our hosts were extremely helpful & went out of their way to ensure our stay was enjoyable. Excellent value, great location for exploring the region.

My wife, myself and our three children have visited Le Gohic twice now, once in early June and the other occasion during the October half term. This place is fantastic, the owners Robin and Sheila are lovely, they care passionately about the holiday makers who visit their hamlet and WILL really make your stay special. We have stayed in Masion Principale and L'Ecurie and have found both to be very comfortable, well equiped and would describe both properties as home from home. There are plenty of things to do in the area and the coast is about 30 - 40 minutes drive away. If visiting the coast we would recommend Lamour Plage, which has a lovely open beach which is ideal for the kids. There are loads of things to do on site and during the October half term the kids spent the day running round the grounds playing etc they had a great time whilst Mum and Dad read some books and relaxed with a glass of wine. Finally, if you want a real relaxing break in a top quality environment then I would not hesitate in recommending Le Gohic.
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.
