Camors House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 8 plus 1 toddler, 4 Bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms

The Acacias is a traditional Breton detached 4 bedroom, 3 bath/shower room, stone house located in Camors which is set in the Forest of Camors in Morbihan, Southern Brittany. On the ground floor is a large comfortable lounge with an open granite log fire, satellite TV, DVD and stereo with iPod dock and on the opposite side of the hall a modern well equipped kitchen diner with open fire and the gas central heating boiler. There is a good selection of books in the hall plus access to a toilet. Two ensuite bedrooms, one king, one double and a family bathroom are located on the first floor, two twin bed rooms on the second floor. Outside the garden is laid mainly to lawn with established trees covering about one third including an old sweet chestnut tree which provides cool dappled shade for barbecues held in the heat of the day. Camors offers a choice of restaurants, bars, a news agent/tobacconist, Post Office, pharmacy, small shops, saboutier, tennis and an Adventure Park in the Forest. A 20% discount off Brittany Ferries standard car and passenger fares is available to all our guests.

Relax in the Garden

Some may like to cook on the BBQ, others prefer to read a book, some play boules or badminton, others just put their feet up and relax. The garden is large enough to accommodate them all.

Eating Out

Camors

In the centre of Camors, just a few hundred yards from the Acacias, Pizzeria La Cigale offers good value Italian food including excellent takeaway pizzas. Korrigans lunch is very good value but limited choice or try a crepe with local cider at the Creperie.

Just a short drive away

We have produced a long list of restaurants in the area providing very good food at a reasonable cost and The Auberge at Ste Anne d'Auray tops the list. They provided food for the Pope when he visited the Basilica.

Local Area and Activities

Beaches

The beaches between Carnac and Locmariaquer are sheltered by the Quiberon peninsula and are generally safe for bathing. The beaches between Quiberon and Lorient offer good surf but require greater care.

Camors Adventure Park

If you have a head for heights you can try all the various ways of travelling through the tree tops at the Camors Adventure Park about a mile from the house.

Coastal Walks

There are stunning views from the footpaths bordering the coast, the river estuaries and the Golfe du Morbihan. The paths are generally well maintained. Take your camera with you as there are many photo opportunities.

Golf

The courses in the area include a French championship course near Auray, a 9 hole beginners course towards Pontivy and a links course near Lorient. Tickets are sometimes available to play 5 different courses in 5 days.

Golfe de Morbihan

Walking or cycling is a joy on Ille aux Moines on their almost traffic free roads; one of 365 islands in the Golfe. There are numerous boat tours of the Golfe from most of the ports including Vannes and Auray.

Ste Anne d'Auray

The small town is overlooked by a very impressive Basilica. There is a very important Pardon at the end of July which attracts up to 20,000 pilgroms.

Walking & Cycling

There are numerous paths through the Forest of Camors for walkers or cyclists. Alternatively join the towpath by the River Blavet towards Hennebont or Pontivy. There are riverside bars for the less active.

Markets and Shopping

Auray

Vannes, Pontivy, Hennebont, Larmor Plage are all market towns but the biggest and best is the Monday morning market at Auray.

Vannes

Very good shopping in the old centre with many specialist shops and picturesque medieval architecture as an added bonus. Markets on Wednesday and Saturday.

An authentic French experience

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first visit to the Acacias and it will not be the last. The spacious bedrooms were appreciated by our family group and it was a pleasure to cook in the well-equipped kitchen. Having such a large garden is an added bonus for barbecues and games. The house was spotless and maintained to a high standard. Camors itself offers local shops and bars and countryside walks. One of our favourite restaurants is The Auberge in St. Anne d'Auray, but there are many good restaurants within a short drive. We enjoyed visiting Auray, for the fish market, Vannes and the Golfe de Morbihan. We would thoroughly recommend the Acacias and are already looking forward to our next visit.

Located on the outskirts of Camors near the market town of Auray, the Acacias offers the perfect setting for exploring Southern Brittany. It's a short walk from the centre of Camors, a small town set in the Forest of Camors with a choice of restaurants, bars, a news agent/tobacconist, Post Office, small shops, saboutier, tennis and an adventure Park in the forest. Auray with its old port of St Goustan lies 12 miles south. The sheltered beaches of Carnac or the surfing beaches on the Quiberon peninsula are a further 8 miles. In the high season the quieter back roads to beaches between Locmariaquer and the sailing centre at La Trinite-sur-mer and between Plouharnel and Gavres or Port-Louis are a good alternative. There are stunning views from the footpaths bordering the coast, the river estuaries and the Golfe du Morbihan, perfect settings for sailing, surfing, windsurfing, canoeing, walking or cycling. There are several golf courses nearby including the French championship course at Golf de St Laurant. Vannes, Pontivy, Hennebont, Lamour Plage and Carnac are all market towns but the biggest and best is the Monday morning market at Auray. Vannes offers very good shopping in the old centre with many specialist shops and medieval architecture as an added bonus.
