About Nadine Mason
We're David and Nadine Mason and bought what was a ruined farm over 15 years ago and have enjoyed bringing these beautiful buildings back to life. We set out to create gites that are as we would want them to be if we were coming here on holiday. That's why we have furnished them with high quality furniture, generous amounts of crockery, glassware and cutlery and kitchen knives that get sharpened regularly! Locmaria is a haven of peace and we love to share it with our guests - many of whom have come back several times as they now love it as much as we do. We are always happy to go the extra mile to make sure you have a great stay - recommendations for places to visit, restaurant bookings or even sticking your bikes on the top of the Landrover so that you can start further afield.
Nadine Mason purchased this Barn in 1998
Why Nadine Mason chose Langoëlan
We chose the area because it had lots of green-edged roads on the Michelin map - and the scenery and empty roads do not disappoint whether you are travelling by car, motorbike or bicycle. We can recommend some great routes for rides out in the car and some of the best motorbiking roads in France - often with some great recommendations for attractions and of course lunch along the way. Our location in the centre of Brittany means you really can make the most of all that the region has to offer - but is still accessible for a weekend visit. We love the peace and quiet but also quick and easy access to bustling towns, great restaurants and beautiful beaches. Nowhere is more than 90mins drive through beautiful countryside on empty roads but there's loads to do in the local area too.
What makes this Barn unique
A real home from home that allows you to relax from day one so you get the best from your holiday - however long you spend with us. We take pride in providing you with great quality furnishings and a brilliantly equipped kitchen - including a block full of sharp knives and a stack of cook books just in case the local food inspires you to start cooking. The property is surrounded by fields and so you can find your own quiet spot to sit and read or just enjoy the views across the countryside - or you can have a swim in the heated pool or take a run around the local lake if you fancy a bit of exercise. We have two lovely and very friendly french spaniels and we are happy to consider requests for our visitors to bring their dogs to stay too. There are lots of fantastic walks to enj

relaxing week at an amazing place
we (a german couple in their beginning 50th with a 13-year old boy) drove over from South-West Germany to this amazing place and had a really relaxing week there.
The owner couple Nadine and David are just great, they did everything to make it a perfect week. ;-)
We got a lot of very good recommendations, we were always asked if we would like them to open the pool (a nice, clean and 28°C warm big pool) and had a fresh wood oven baguette in the house along with butter and milk and some other drinks in the fridge at our arrival. And we even got three fresh crossaints from that great wood oven bakery on our last morning for our way back to Germany. Thanks again, that was really appreciated.
This place is perfect for a couple with up to two kids, we can definitely recommend this place.
Thank you Guido for your kind words. It was lovely to meet you, Verena and Rik and we are pleased that you had a great week at Locmaria - you were fantastic guests with whom to share our lovely part of Brittany. It was our pleasure to offer a few extras to make sure you got the most out of your stay - and we hope that the return to daily life is not too painful. Nadine & David.
A chance to get away from it all and relax!
This is the fourth time we have visited this charming French property. It's the most relaxing of holiday places for us. The Grange has comfort, style and all mod cons. It just feels like a home from home for us now. English owners Nadine and David are friendly, caring and considerate hosts. There when you need them or fancy a chat or a glass of wine, but leaving you in peace and quiet when you're just wanting to chill out. There are outside tables and chairs for just sitting in the sun. The property itself has a nice (heated!) swimming pool. There are meadows to stroll around and quiet lanes for longer walks or cycle rides. This is central rural Brittany - quiet but with towns and villages with charm and character within easy car drives. The coast (N, W & S) is also about an hour or so's drive and that gives all sorts of options for a "day at the seaside" ....or a visit to the major towns of Vannes or Quimper. Most of our stay though we just enjoy the quiet pleasures of this delightful place and the chance to totally unwind. Highly recommended.
Beautifully restored Grange - just what we needed!
This was our second stay at Gites Locmaria, having used it as a useful base for house-hunting the previous September, and as before, we received a very warm welcome from owners Nadine and David. The Grange is a beautiful example of how to renovate in style and if you are looking for somewhere sumptuous but homely at the same time, this is the place for you. It was extra special for us as this week preceded our move in to our new French house just up the road and allowed us to relax after much cleaning and preparations for our removals arrival. In short, perfect!
Thank you Karen for your lovely comments and it's lovely to have you now as a near neighbour in this beautiful part of rural Brittany - it got you under its spell too!
The Grange at Locmaria - a very special place.
I have recently returned from my latest stay in The Grange at Locmaria.
If you are looking for a special place to stay in Brittany this really fits the bill. The grange itself is extremely comfortable and equipped with everything one needs - the wood-burner deserves a special mention!
The location is just great - set as it is in the peace and tranquility of Morbihan, but still close to all the varied attractions of the area.
What makes Locmaria stand out however is the welcome you receive from Nadine & David. From the first minute you are made to feel right at home and their quiet attention to every detail makes your stay really special - I feel a friend not just another guest.
I've already booked my next stay with them in September and can't wait to spend some more quality time in this special place.
Thank you Roger for your kind words and we look forward to welcoming you back for a bit more Breton life at the annual "Pardon de Locmaria" in September.
Locmaria is really special place and we are always happy to share it with others. We have especially enjoyed welcoming back our many "returnees" over the last 12 years.
Locmaria delivers special holidays to its guests
Leaving the city to linger in the space of Locmaria is profound. If you sit on a rug under a tree somewhere near the deliciously refreshing (heated) swimming pool to read a book or contemplate the universe you can hear your own heart recalibrating. The owners, Nadine and David’s flair in styling the renovation and furnishing of the wonderful original farm buildings at Locmaria is exceptional. The Grange, The Farmhouse and Bis. All offer home-from-home comfort, excellent functionality and endearing charm.
The hospitality of David and Nadine is a mixture between the best hotels and staying with the warmest of family – requests agreeably met, information given, assistance supplied and adventurous ideas explored. And More. Space to breathe is guaranteed, (with the best morning croissants fetched to your front door on days the boulanger makes them)
Locmaria is living centre to all sides and departments of Brittany. Vannes is attractive and bustling with a wonderful market - and the boats and beaches to the south in beautiful Morbihan are one hour away. 25 minutes north is Lake Guerledan with long walks and paddling adventures. The Nantes to Brest canal is close with great cycling paths. There are enough pretty villages to explore to keep you busy for a few years. I discovered that most guests return, there is no greater recommendation.
Lieu magnifique + hôtes adorables = séjour parfait !
Nous recherchions ma femme et moi le calme et la tranquillité dans la campagne bretonne. Nous ne pouvions pas mieux tomber !
En bordure d'un petit village, Locmaria est bien situé pour découvrir cette partie de la Bretagne.
Le lieu est magnifique, une Grange rénovée au charme typique et très bien équipée.On ne manque de rien.
D'autant plus que Nadine et David sont des hôtes remarquables de par leur gentillesse et leur convivialité. Ils ont été aux petits soins avec nous, nous apportant même les croissants issus de leur boulangerie favorite !
Nous recommandons vivement ce lieu pour votre futur séjour.
