Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Le Faouet, Morbihan, France your home away from home

Deep in the countryside of Brittany lays the town of Le Faouet. Charmingly picturesque, Le Faouet has a very long history, clearly visible in the ancient masonry and beautiful little chapels that adorn the surrounding countryside. A self catering Le Faouet gite is ideal for peaceful family holidays in the French countryside, with a huge amount of countryside to explore on foot, horse back or bicycle.

Things to do on holiday to Le Faouet, France

When you first arrive at your Le Faouet villa, a great way to start your exploration is to visit the Le Faouet Museum, houses in the 17th Century convent. There is a huge amount of information here, displayed superbly making it easy to decipher for both relative experts and those without a clue on French history alike. Paintings of the area are in good supply from throughout the years due to the natural beauty of the area, and many are displayed, giving a fantastic record of change. The two small chapels of Sainte Barbe and Saint Fiacre within the village are the tourist hotspots, as both are exquisitely and elaborately built.

Fishermen will already be familiar with Le Faouet, as it stands upon the banks of the River Elle, one of the best angling rivers in Brittany. Trout and salmon are regularly caught along the Le Faouet beat of the river, with fishing permits readily available within the town.

The whole area, and especially the valley of the River Elle are crossed with paths for walking, cycling and horse riding. These types of holiday are absolutely fantastic in the area, especially when you consider the absolute natural beauty of the Le Faouet area, the fine, rustic cuisine and the plentiful camp sites.

Weather in Le Faouet, France

Conditions in Le Faouet are similar to those of the south coast of England, but a few degrees warmer as a result of the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. During the summer, temperatures can reach up to around 30°C in the middle of the day, with delightfully long, warm evenings most nights. During the winter months, the weather is largely unpredictable, but remains similar to British conditions.

                                            The accommodation was perfect and the hosts couldn't have been more helpful

                                            We had a great stay at Ancient Dwelling. Niki and Miles were the perfect hosts and made us feel very at home and helped with any queries we had and local recommendations. The setting of the house is stunning and we loved exploring the nearby trails and lake. We were lucky enough to even get a dip in the heated pool which I wasn't expecting in late March!! The house was perfect for our needs and provided a great space for our toddler to roam around with freedom. Thanks for a great stay! We will definitely be returning.

                                            Fabulous gite and very welcoming owners!

                                            We spent an idyllic week at 'Bis' Gite Locmaria; a fabulous gite with everything you could wish for. Very tastefully decorated and situation in a lovely quiet corner of Morbihan. The owners have obviously worked very hard to restore the property but not lose any of its charm. Very welcoming hosts and dogs on arrival! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed stay.
