We discovered and bought the property in 1992 and renovated it and started receiving guests in 1994.
Lisa purchased this house in 1992
We loved France and everything about France but it also reminded us of England in the past. We found the perfect location and hope you love it as much as we do.
Quiet but not isolated, the perfect spot for exploring any part of Brittany as it is situated right in the centre. There is something here to suit everyone.

"The house, garden and view are fabulous. Plenty of room to run around and we loved thrashing each other at table tennis! The children loved the beaches at Lac Guerledan while the adults enjoyed all the artefacts at Pont Aven. A big thank you and will recommend it to other wheel chair users".

We arrived 1st August 2015 for 2 weeks. It is an attractive, spacious, property, well equipped and comfortable. The property was clean and well maintained. We had excellent services from Sue and Joel [the owners who lived in an adjacent property]. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They were very helpful indeed. We had 2 children approaching their teens and the large garden was a delight for them - swings, trampoline and a gym/play centre with table tennis and snooker. We would certainly recommend the property to a friend or relative. A very peaceful location out in the countryside but there is small town close by [Pontivy] which is attractive and proved very popular with everyone [eating,shopping, etc]. We found a lovely seaside beach to the south of us with beach activities which we really enjoyed [45-60 mins drive]. There is a very large lake close by with many sporting activities which was unfortunately drained during our stay. I understand that it will be filled again in Autumn 2015 ready for 2016. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Les Marrons
Many parts of the coast are only a 40-minute drive away with a choice of beautiful white sandy beaches, seaside resorts and secluded rocky coves, all unspoilt and clean.
Some of the most popular beach areas include Carnac, La Trinite Sur Mer, Larmor Plage and the Cote Sauvage, where you can enjoy all kinds of water sports. Quieter beaches, where you will find nature reserves, big sand dunes and wide open spaces include the long dune belt from Gavres to Penthièvre.
The airport of Dinard is two hours away, where cars can be hired if needed.
The port of St. Malo and Roscoff are two hours away. The port of Cherbourg is four hours by car and Calais is six hours drive away.
Le Guily lies in quiet and tranquil countryside, amongst green rolling hills and lush wooded valleys in the Blavet valley. However, the hamlet is not at all isolated and there is an abundance of picturesque towns and villages close by.
The little village of Kergrist is nearby and has two friendly bars/restaurants, a church, mechanic and a shop selling fresh bread.
Three miles away is the picturesque small town of Mur-de-Bretagne which is a lovely little town which has a supermarket, pharmacies, baker, butcher, petrol station, post office, banks, tourist information centre, mini-golf and good bars and restaurants.
The larger historic town of Pontivy, formerly known as Napoleonville, is 6 miles away. The town has some well known named shops as well as lovely independant shops, bars, restaurants. There is an historic chateau and a picturesque canal running through it .
The 12C Cistercian Abbey of Bon Repos is a short drive away. Destroyed during the revolution much renovation has since taken place, and the fine façade and the vast size of the church may still be admired. There is a small market every Sunday next to it.
There are craft and gift shops and many cultural events and shows. Nearby are good restaurants. There are many historic towns, villages and castles to visit including Vannes, Josselin, Rochefort, Auray, Hennebont and Quimper - all within easy driving distance.
Hennebont with its impressive Basilica and ramparts, Auray with it's delightful old port of St.Goustan, and Vannes with its smart shopping centres and choice of Hypermarkets. The recently restored medieval village of Poul Fetan, the standing stones of Carnac and the Chateau at Josselin with its magnificent pepper pot towers are all sites not to be missed.
Nearly every day of the week you will find a local market where you can sample the best local produce, seafood, crepes, locally grown fruit & vegetables and wonderful patisserie.
Throughout the year, there are regular antique markets, flea markets and the French equivalent of car boot sales. These are great places to find some interesting collectables.
