Fabulous property set in beautiful grounds in a stunning location, with pool and tennis court
Only 2 hrs from the ferry, this fabulous gite is set in a quiet location in beautiful countryside not far from a lake with stunning restaurant/bar.
The delightful owners Keith and Pat are on site and are fabulous low key hosts who are there if you need them, but give you all the privacy you need for your family holiday.
It's a 5 minute drive to the village with bar tabac, ruined monastery and Sunday market.
Ideal location to explore the area, including cycle paths and picturesque villages.
A wonderful stay with everything you could possibly need.
We had a lovely stay at the gite, it was very spacious and had everything we needed. The children enjoyed the grounds, tennis court and games room. We all enjoyed the heated swimming pool too. The welcome pack was very generous. Pat and Keith were exceptional hosts, only there if we needed them. A memorable family holiday thank you Pat & Keith.
Amazingly beautiful place to stay
Our 5 star greeting and welcome pack from the fab and super-friendly Keith and Pat (who could not do enough for us) started our holiday as it was meant to go on. The care and attention that has been put into this relaxing, yet modern, gite is obvious from every corner. It’s easy to spend hours relaxing by the pool, or for the more active, playing tennis, darts, pool or pétanque!
In the immediate area (about a 4 minute drive) there is a stunning lake with convenient restaurant/bar and at a similar distance in the opposite direction a beautiful little village with bar/brasserie and old abbey to explore.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough for some well-needed R&R which is what we wanted. However, there are also plenty of things to do and see in the surrounding area if you are more inclined to get ‘out and about’.
Will definitely go back when we can. Thanks for a fab time Keith and Pat! X
Beautiful gite, would highly recommend
Just back from a 2 week stay at Malvran. The gite is beautiful and has everything you need and more! The welcome pack we received on arrival was excellent as was the customer service from the owners Keith and Pat, who were always available to help and recommend places to visit/nearest supermarket etc. The swimming pool, tennis court and games room kept us entertained and we also enjoyed nearby beach at the lake. Would highly recommend a stay here.
it was a pleasure meeting you & family in June, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, we also thank you for leaving the gite in good order & look forward to seeing you back at Malvran in the future. Wishing you & family all the very best for the future Kindest Regards Keith & Pat
A great place to relax and enjoy rural Brittany
Our second visit to Malvran proved just as good as our first. We had a much needed and very relaxing break soaking up the sun and the French way of life. Pat and Keith could not be better hosts: they are so kind and friendly and could not have been more helpful.
This is an outstanding gite in a beautiful part of Brittany with lots to do both at the gite (swimming in the lovely heated pool, tennis, walking round the extensive gardens) and close by (lake, way-marked trails through the amazing forest, cycling along the Nantes-Brest canal tow path). Lots of delightful French villages within a few miles and some superb eating places close by too. We made day trips to Pontivy, Dinan, St Brieuc and the beaches of Northern Brittany but were just as happy collecting our baguettes in the morning and having a great day by the pool with a walk through the forest in the early evening.
We love this gite so much that we will be returning again next year!
Thank you very much for your kind comments, the year will fly by, see you 2016
Beautiful property in a beautiful setting
This was our third summer holiday at the gite and was every bit as relaxing and enjoyable as the previous visits. We spent a week with our two young children (1 and 3) and two friends who also have a young daughter (3). Keith and Pat provide wonderful and friendly customer service, keeping every aspect of the property impeccably clean and always happy to talk and provide any information you might need on the local area.
The house itself is thoughtfully furnished and spacious with a large living spaces and bedrooms. The old stone construction means it stays lovely and cool inside on hot days.
The grounds are huge and very well maintained - there is plenty for children to explore and the gate to the (very quiet) road can be shut. There is also ample space to sit, eat and drink outside around the front of the gite and pool area which with the fine weather we were lucky to use every day. The tennis court and games room are excellent and the pool is impeccably maintained every day by Keith and kept at a lovely temperature for both children and adults to enjoy.
The main attraction in this peaceful and tranquil area is the huge lake/reservoir. It's a downhill 2km walk from the gite through the woods to the many paths around the lake edge - and there is a nice artificial beach a 5 minute drive away with a restaurant and water-sports rentals. There are a huge number of other attractions a slightly longer drive away.
Overall thoroughly recommended for a relaxing stay in a beautiful part of the world.
We are located between 3 coast lines, furthest about an hours drive, South coast can be reached in about 45 minutes beaches are sandy and boat trips to the many Islands are available, west coast has fewer beaches, coastline rocky and great for walking, North coast about an hour is very pretty with its famous coloured rock formations only a few minutes from the gite is Lac de Guerledan with safe sandy beaches swimming and water sports available, at the Lac is a lovely terrace restaurant to relax.
Gite de Malvran is centrally located and can be reached from the ferry ports of St Malo 1hr 40mins Roscoff 2hrs Caen 3hrs & Cherbourg 4hrs Lehavre 4hs Dieppe 4hrs 30mins Calais 6hrs
Airports Dinard 1hr 30mins Brest 2hrs Rennes 1hr 30mins.
St Aignan is 6km, Mur de Bretagne 10km, Pontivy 20km.
all places of interest can be reached from the gite in about one hours drive.
Lovely forest walks direct from the gite, restaurants and cafe' bars within 1.5km all highly recommended.
