The
Experience

Close to beautiful, medieval Vannes, Jantine and Jacques’ house lies in undulating country where horses 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. Feast on crêpes before setting off for walks and climbs and, from the top of wooded summits, views over the Morbihan Gulf. Then a nap in the enclosed garden or an espresso in the tiny salon. If you’re enjoying the indoor pool too much to be tempted by a local Michelin-starred restaurant (there are two), Jantine will make you a tasty platter.

Reviews

Jantine, Jacques, Holly the dog and zorro the cat were all very welcoming . Our room was very bright and sunny and the breakfast the next morning was delicious. In a great position to visit Vannes which is just a short drive away.

Julie, Laniscat

A wonderful week with the warmest of hosts. Our family (grandma, grandad, uncle, mum, dad and two under 5s) couldn't have wished for more. Cöet Bihan is a genuinely beautiful setting and the standard of accommodation and service provided by Jacques and Jantine is second to none. It's not easy to please all ages, but they did so with ease And to top notch quality. Our 4 year old adored exploring the beautiful (& safe) garden - he was in his element all week. The local knowledge made our holiday even more special: Ile Aux Moines, Chateau Suscinio, Port Navalo & Rochefort-en-Terre. Un grand merci

The very welcome cup of tea and cake served to us in the beautiful garden as soon as we arrived was typical of Jantine's warm hospitality. Another delightful find, with a helpful hostesses who made a restaurant booking for us and gave us helpful advise on where to visit

Celia

Jantine and Jacques are marvellous hosts who will answer any questions regarding where to visit to give you the best experience of the locality. They couldn't be more helpful. The room was comfortable and it was wonderful to have access to the terrace with lovely views of the garden . Take time to enjoy the breakfast of delicious home-made creamy yoghurt with a wide variety of excellent jams also made by Jantine. You will leave feeling you have been staying with friends.

Verity

We were made so welcome after a long cycle ride here. A few refreshing beers with Jacques and then a great shower before a delicious supper in the garden. His omelette is apparently legendary and it was delicious. An early night and up again to cycle some more but not without a scrumy breakfast of fresh bread and home made jams. A delightful couple who made our stay so lovely.

Sheira

Wonderful place, beautifully restored. Jantine and Jacques are excellent hosts: we should have stayed two nights just to follow up on some of our conversations (in perfect English) about French life and French business!

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Jantine Guégan-Helder

  • The name of our domaine is due to the presence of a wood of chestnuts and oaks. Coët Bihan means Little Wood in breton. It is an old farm built during the 18 and 19 th centuries
  • The estate is a little green valley, only a few minutes away from an old walled medieval city and the harbour on the gorgeous Golfe du Morbihan, regarded as one of the most beautiful bays in the world.
  • The Golfe du Morbihan, Little Sea in breton, is a unique place with numerous islands to discover by cruising - one of the musts of a stay in the region - or by foot thanks to the paths all around the Golfe.
  • Our B&B is ideally located to reach Vannes, the Golfe, the beaches on the Atlantic Ocean or the preserved country side with its little medieval cities, its manors, chapels and forests. The sites are so numerous that you will certainly come back.
  • Fans of the sea, nature, nice sites and good food will enjoy staying at our place. We are able to give great advice on the area to optimize your stay in South Brittany and give our best so you appreciate your time at our home.
  • After busy days you can relax and enjoy our terraces, swimming pool, gardens and walking around our fields and wood - 10 acres - before going to Vannes for a good meal in numerous restaurants and enjoy the atmosphere of the street.
