The house is located in a quiet rural location on the edge of a pretty village with its own small supermarket, boulangerie and bar. It is close to small market towns with supermarkets, banks, restaurants, bars and shops. There are several historic towns within half an hours drive where you can shop or simply find a nice cafe or restaurant to watch the people go by when you have your fill of art and culture. If a beach holiday is what you are looking for there are dozens of beautiful beaches within easy range some with restaurants and small cafes and others on the edge of larger towns. If golf is your thing the courses at St Cast le Guido and Plelan St Michel are nearby.
My husband and I own a charming rural house on the edge of the village of Megrit. We have used it as a holiday home for ourselves, our family and friends on a regular basis throughout the year. We even got snowed in one Christmas! Now we are both retired we have decided to rent the property so that others can enjoy this beautiful part of Brittany.
We chose this location in 1995 because of its convenient location with easy access to ports and the airport. The local towns and villages are a hive of activity with traditional festivals every weekend. When we want to relax it is an easy journey to the local beaches.
Julie Humphries purchased this bungalow in 1995
We had spent several family summers holidays in Brittany and Normandy. We decided eleven years ago to buy a house and the location we looked at had to be reasonably near to a ferry port and and airport so that Julie could visit for long weekends. We also wanted to be able to visit the beach easily and yet have towns and cities nearby that provided a mix of culture, shopping and beaches. The weather, a bit warmer than home also helps. We have had some very hot summers recently and equally been snowed in once over the Christmas holidays. Our children and grandchildren now regularly holiday at the house and love the easy access to the various activities and gorgeous beaches.
The house is ideally situated with beautiful beaches such as St Jacut de Mer within easy reach as well as the capital of Rennes and the city of Dinan with its medieval centre. The location is very tranquil with the lane ending at our house. Wildlife abounds, deer graze in our garden from time to time and we have a buzzard living in a tree half way up the lane. There is a large patio area, with table and chairs, sun loungers, fire pit, BBQ, blankets and patio games. There are a number of toys, books and games in the house. We have Wifi access.
We had a wonderful stay in a peaceful and beautiful area within easy distance of places of interest.
The property was very comfortable and the instructions from the owners re. utilities etc were very clear. Their booklet was superb letting us know about local facilities and places of interest. Well positioned for places such as St Malo, Dinan, Dinard and Josselin. We spent a wonderful 8 days at the seculded rural hideaway. Thank you Julie and Cedric!
We had a great time at Les Vaux Morans. It is in a lovely, secluded setting and is just a half hour trip to lots of beautfiful beaches. The owners Julie and Cedric are very friendly and helpful, ready to answer all our queries, and the house is perfect for a visit with small kids.
Highlights were the mediaeval town of Dinan and (even better) the nearby Abbey at Lehon, collecting clams for dinner from the beach at St Jacut, and seeing the goats being milked at a farm just on the doorstep. Oh, and Kouign Amman.
This house is absolutely lovely, the owners have made it a lovely rental cottage that is like home from home. The property is about half an hour away from lots of different beautiful beaches, and the city of Dinan (approx 15 mins away) is absolutely lovely with lots of art galleries. The owners were very accessible and incredibly helpful with their welcome pack. Will definitely recommend and stay again. Thanks
Nice location with large garden. Well equipped and clean. Plenty of books,games and DVDs for all tastes/ages. Good sized bedrooms. Lovely sitting room with plenty of seating. Wifi was great as was satellite chanels ( not all but enough) and parking. Weather was unkind but that's pot luck.
