Spacious family gite with large private indoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi and Sauna. Situated within walking distance of Erbray village, the gite is not isolated and only 8km from the historic market town of Châteaubriant. Originally an old milking parlour, the property has been lovingly converted to accommodate up to ten guests in comfort. The indoor/covered heated swimming pool, jacuzzi and optional sauna are for your private use and not shared with either the owners or any other guests for the duration of your stay. The pool-room is reached via a 20 metre stroll through the landscaped garden which features an (unfenced) Koi carp pond, separate games area, illuminated dining pagoda with BBQ and a timber decked sun-bathing terrace. This gite will appeal to demanding guests seeking more than just ordinary holiday accommodation and is the perfect French semi-rural retreat for both families & friends looking to get far from the maddening crowd!

The longest beach in Europe (8km long) at the chic seaside resort of La Baule is just over an hours drive away by car. Great for designer label shopping and gourmet restaurants, it's regarded by many as the St. Tropez of Brittany. Fifteen minutes drive from the Gite is the largest inland lake in the region. It offers a sandy man-made beach with supervised (in July/August) bathing, fishing, sailing, windsurfing and water sports. All equipment is available for hire in July and August.

Please accept our apologies! We do not arrange quiz evenings, games, BBQs, keep fit classes, or any other such activities. We believe that the decision on what you wish to do on your holiday and with whom you want to spend time, should be yours. Our only involvement is to provide you with the keys to your ‘home from home’ gite in a region of France not as yet spoilt by tourism.
If you and your family or friends are looking to enjoy a relaxing holiday in rural France (yet within easy walking distance of a village) then this laid back holiday retreat may be exactly what the doctor ordered.
Come and discover for yourself what makes The French Granary stand out from the rest and why this was the first Gité in this region to have been awarded ‘4 Stars’ by the Prefecture of the Loire-Atlantique.
No matter what the weather, the indoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi and option Sauna will help you to relax and unwind - come rain or shine!
We fully understand that many of our guests are only able to take their holidays during peak periods. If therefore you wish to secure the dates that suit you best, please do book well in advance. Booking early has no drawbacks. You can relax in the knowledge that we never offer late availability discounts. We believe it grossly unfair to penalise guests who have booked in advance by offering the same holiday at a reduced rate later in the year. Everyone who stays pays the same rates - No matter when the booking is made!
There are no hidden charges at The French Granary. We have two shopping cycles that are free to use and two mountain bikes available to hire. You can bring your own Dvd's/Blu-rays & PS2 Games or rent them from us at less than high street prices. Electricity (up to 10kw per day) is provided free of charge. Should the limit be exceeded, costs are calculated as per Gites-de-France guidelines. The gite also boasts a woodburing fire for which we provide the first basket of logs free of charge.
