A late 17th-century farmhouse and its outbuildings have been transformed into two warm and relaxed gîtes – with a third on the way – by the talented Sue and Steve. They’re set in a small hamlet in flat farming country and although it feels remote you’re only 15 minutes from Saint-Malo.
If it’s raining, stoke the wood-burner and find comfy sofas, books, films and board games as well as a big screen TV; when the sun shines you have your own corner in the leafy garden for a barbecue and two bicycles to explore the surrounding countryside.
Find a welcome basket with sparkling wine, eggs, local cheese and bread; there’s a bakery a two-minute walk away and an acclaimed restaurant, Eden Brug, is five minutes. The nearest towns, Châteauneuf and Miniac Morvan, are less than ten minutes by car and have shops, restaurants and markets; cycle the back roads to the Bay of Mont Saint-Michel in an hour.
