Manoir du Plessix-Madeuc

Côtes-d’Armor, France

Cultured hosts with exquisite taste, finely crafted apartments, original art. And bucolic landscapes begging for sketchbook and brush


5 bedrooms


Sleeps 11


Some love the art best – this handsome 17th-century manor brims with original works. For others it’s the peace of this rural hamlet, a few fields from a Roman village near Brittany’s Emerald Coast. Everyone delights in the company of Bérénice and Olivier, who host artists-in-residence and exhibitions twice yearly. And each guest has a favourite apartment, stacked in the manor’s west tower with spiral stairs at its core. Take La Terrasse for its – you guessed – leafy terrace, and its soaring oak ceilings, glass dining table, gorgeous bathroom. Above, Le Logis with magnificent stone fire and calming palette of rust red and soft beige. Or chic loft suite La Passerelle, like a ship’s bridge with swooping panoramas and bespoke metal stairs to mezzanine bedrooms. All have open fires, slick kitchens, sound systems, the works. Artists can hire two light-filled studios in the eaves. Outside, roses scamper under fruit trees while neatly trimmed bay trees pose by parasols. No-one disturbs the bucolic peace, but few resist taking a sketchbook or camera to seaside Dinard, walled Saint-Malo, the dramatic Pink Granite Coast.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It is a very characterful French manor house which also acts as an artists' colony. The apartment is furnished to a high standard and is very comfortable. There is plenty to see and do in the local area and the owners are friendly and speak English. We particularly enjoyed the local walks and hikes along the coast, which the owners told us about and they gave us some local maps.
