The Experience

Open the windows; smell the sea air; hear the gulls call. These two handsome houses, built for oyster farmers in 1807, have been in the family for three generations; and if you come as a party, they link together.

Choose between ‘Oyster’ with its bedrooms across the top two floors, and ‘Captain’ with its stunning extension. Both are bright, beautiful, warm and inviting. Pop into Carnac for shops and markets; come home to kitchens a pleasure to work in. In summer you can lunch on the terraces, to a backdrop of evergreen oaks. The freshest oysters you will ever taste come from the shacks on the shore, accompanied by glasses of muscadet. Huîtres Le Priol is a three-minute stroll.

Ride horses through the Breton forests; surf the waves of the Côte Sauvage. Bustling Trinité-sur-Mer is your main hub… you could catch the train to Paris.

Reviews

After a day on the road it was a pleasure to arrive here, to stare out over the bay and breathe in the sea air. A place of calm and serenity. The coup de coeur was the metal walkway spanning the ceiling of the dining room in the Captain's house, so light and airy, with a sophisticated rustic charm, the white washed beams, the soft furnishings and the comfort. I didn't want to leave!

Location

The neighbourhood

Down a small winding road you arrive in Le Pô, a gentle oyster farming area of Carnac. The nearest town is Carnac, a six-minute drive, a charming little seaside place established in 1903, with sandy beaches, sailing boats and crêperies. There's a twice-weekly farmers’ market, a Thalasso spa, and the famous standing stones (Les Menhirs) that pre-date both Knossos and Stonehenge.

Local points of interest from Odile Buon

  • Dating back to the early 1800s, Oyster Farmers Bay has retained much of its characterful features whilst being renovated with contemporary design and a great eye for detail.
  • We have used traditional building materials alongside elegant modern fittings and high-end appliances across the homely living room, sleek kitchen and bright dining area.
  • There are two homes side to side that can be booked separately or together. They are completely independent but have a door connecting the back patios together and can sleep up to 14 guests in both homes. Each house is fully equipped, with its own kitchen.
  • Just a 2 min walk dine at a highly regarded restaurant serving local seafood. Old Carnac is just 2km away, with its shops, restaurants, museum and pre-historic stones attracting visitors from across the region.
  • Hire bikes and cycle to the lovely sandy beaches. Carnac Plage is only 4 km away and the famed sailing town of Trinite-Sur-Mer is a 10 minute car ride away. Explore the region by the many walking, biking and horse-riding paths along the Morbihan coast.
  • Take the boat across to Brittany’s largest island, Belle-Île, for yet more amazing beaches and stunning scenery.

Introducing

Odile Buon

The houses, renovated in 2019, have been in the Gouzer family since the 19th century, and they lie next to their own oyster farm. The family still love to return there for their own reunions when they can. Breton manageress Odile will show you in - she speaks excellent English, is friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful.
