There’s a faded elegance about this 16th-century stone manor with its lingering smell of woodsmoke and grand features that whisper its fine heritage. Up a spiral staircase are three bedrooms – Anne de Bretagne, a suite for three with separate bathroom, Les Cordeliers for two, and Retour de Voyage for up to four. Both are unfussy yet inviting. Breakfast is a treat in front of a crackling fire: fresh breads, pastries, local honey. Mme Voisard will gladly give you the grand tour, or you can wander free-range: find the little chapel in the grounds, cosy-up in the guest salon, explore the forest. Bustling Quimper and the coast are close.
