About Sally Hales

My wife and I purchased this house as our retirement home.

Sally Hales purchased this farmhouse in 2008

Why Sally Hales chose Quistinic

The house in an ideal place close to the beach and country. Baud is a good place for general food shopping. The best thing is the river. I was bought up by the Thames in Twickenham which is a great. But The Blavet is just that bit better, you can walk for miles without seeing anyone.

What makes this farmhouse unique

One of the best courses in Morbihan is Golf de Saint-Laurent at Ploemel near CARNAC. It was established in 1975 and is attractively laid out among oak, pine and chestnut trees. It hosted the French PGA Championship in 1988 and 1989. Its broad, gently undulating fairways and well-kept greens will encourage your game. 18 holes, 6,686 yards, par 72.

Golf de Baden, set amongst pine trees and broom next to the Auray River, offers superb views separated from the practice area by 100 year old oak trees. Beware, however, of strategic water, which affects play on 9 of the holes and concentrates the mind wonderfully. The pitch and putt practice course welcomes all beginners. 18 holes, 6,722 yards, par 72.

Lovely property, great location but some issues about cleaning

  • 3 of 5

This is a very attractive property in an excellent location. However, the requirement for guests to clean before they had left had not worked. The house had been left in an unacceptable state and no one had checked on this. The response of the house manager to our concerns was disappointing.

The house is extremely well located for cycling along the river Blavet. This would make it attractive for other cyclists especially those reluctant to do much road cycling. It was unfortunate that we could not access the garden other than through the house because there was no key for the gate.

Owner's Response: The house had been checked by the 'house manageress'. The bathroom and shower room had been checked and mats renewed. The kitchen was clean and fridge clean. The email you sent me said there were dog biscuits on the sofa and the BBQ was dirty, this is not true. The last person to use the BBQ was the owner who is most particular about cleaning the BBQ. You mentioned that the fire had ashes in it, I'm sorry but we always leave some ashes in the fire it helps it go. I chose not to comment on your complaints as I found them fairly trivial. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay dispite the awful cleaning issue.

Amazing property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

So much space in a great house. Secure garden, which was great for the dog. Everything you could need in the kitchen and in the house. So peaceful but plenty of places nearby to get what you needed - vets and food shopping easy in Baud - fabulous places to visit near and a bit further away. Have booked again for next year!!

Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

Fantastic for canoeing and fishing or just fantastic walks.


Its takes me 20 minutes to drive to the beach.


Approx 3 hours from Caen and 2 hours from St Malo.


6km to the town of Baud.

Further Details:

Treblavet is just 10 minutes walk from the Restaurant du Pecheurs, and the pretty riverside path along the Blavet which is also great for post lunch bike rides! Also a famous area in the region for anglers and aspiring artists to see the fish, otters and kingfishers. There is a swimming lake and canoes can be hired (July / August) to explore the Blavet from the water. For children there is an exciting ropes course at Camors and the famous preserved 17th century village of Poul Fetan are both within a 10 minute drive.
