Close to beautiful, medieval Vannes and the Gulf of Morbihan, Jantine and Jacques’ house lies in undulating country where horses, goats and Highland cattle graze and clematis clambers. Light-filled bedrooms, the most luxurious on the first floor, are crisp and comfy with pukka linen and top-class showers. Start the day with an organic à la carte breakfast of homemade jams, yogurts, eggs from the chickens, croissants and Sunday cakes. Have a nap in the enclosed gardens, sip an espresso in the tiny salon, enjoy the indoor pool. For dinner, there are many restaurants nearby and your hosts are happy to recommend some great-value ones serving local produce.
