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.
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.
