About the property

The Property: Hopefully you will find all that you may need or want for your holiday, please just ask if you don’t. As you arrive, park outside on the quiet lane and walk into the large, light and airy lounge/diner and kitchen area. You can watch UK free satellite TV, a DVD or browse the fast reliable free internet. We also have access to French free to air TV channels. Upstairs you can rest and refresh in the large south facing bedrooms and spa shower.

The gîte forms part of a typical longère which is several hundred years old and was recently renovated to a high standard by previous owners (who still live in the commune). As new owners we aim to add a little of our own personality to this already beautiful house and refurbish the property ready for the Summer season.

The gîte is situated on a quiet lane with plenty of parking and two gardens exclusively for the use of guests. It has three large double sized bedrooms, all south facing, a large lounge/kitchen/ diner and its own dedicated guests' garden areas, including a large boules pitch, set across the quiet lane. We have a gated garden for added security for younger children. In the summer season we will also offer a number of additional activities on-site and in the surrounding areas, including yoga, fitness (circuit training etc.), guided walks, bike rides, inflatable kayak hire, boat trips and fishing in the Gulf of Morbihan.

There are plenty of adult and children’s books and indoor and outdoor games to keep everyone occupied.

All rooms have electric heaters and the lounge has an efficient wood-burning stove.

There is a ground floor toilet and a shower room with toilet on the first floor.

Outside Amenities: Outside and across the lane you can sit in sun or shade in either of the garden areas, have a BBQ or play boules on the boules court.

One of the garden areas is securely gated for the benefit of younger children. There is even a pond at the end of the lane with free fishing.

Surrounding Area: Mohon is close to links to both north and south coasts via fast toll free roads. If you are looking to buy a property in Brittany then this is a good location to start from.

The gite is situated in a small friendly hamlet in the heart of the Brittany countryside and is a short 10-minute drive from the popular medieval town of Josselin with its selection of restaurants, weekly street market, supermarkets, canal and gorgeous chateau. The local village of Mohon is only a couple of minutes' away and has a local small grocery store, boulangerie and bar. We can arrange transport for day trips or dining out if required.

If you are looking for activities then there are plenty of cycle routes and local lakes for water sports, walking and also local riding facilities. Ploermel has an indoor public swimming pool and nine hole golf course.

Lots of beautiful villages, towns and ports are close by including Josselin, Malestroit, La Gacilly and Rochefort en Terre, Vannes and Auray. From the gite it is easy to reach either south or north coast beaches within an hour and a range of countryside activities via the fast toll free main roads. St Malo is only about 90 minutes away. The many local tourist activities include the Brest-Nantes canal; Lac au Duc with a range of water sports, walks and golf; Lac Guerledan; La Gacilly with its famous annual street photographic exhibition; Malestroit; Rochefort-en-Terre; Domaine de Kerguehennec; with exhibitions and grounds for walks, Dinan; Rennes and Vannes.

We would be happy to arrange a boat trip for you touring the gorgeous Gulf de Morbihan and it’s enchanting islands.
