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.

Places to visit on holiday to Le Faouet, France

Ploerdut is a fantastically picturesque village between a wood lined canal and a gushing river, perfect for walking and cycling holidays as well as scenic fishing breaks. There is also a great little golf course on the outskirts of the village.

Langoelan is one of the best places in Morbihan to really get away from it all and enjoy the best of the countryside. Surrounded by thick woodland and rich meadows, Langoelan offers a fantastic rural retreat in the French countryside.

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.

Travel to Le Faouet, France

It could hardly be easier to reach a self catering holiday rental property in Le Faouet. Rennes Airport (ZFL) is the closest to Le Faouet accommodation, receiving fantastically cheap flights from Flybe, Ryanair and British Airways. Of course, if you would prefer to take your car, there are many ferries from the south coast of the UK to the ports of northern Brittany.

                                  Relaxing Christmas Stay at Lenoyer

                                  5 of 5
                                  We enjoyed a very peaceful and relaxing stay at Lenoyer over Christmas and New Year. We relished the delights of the hot tub on a daily basis! Particularly lovely to be ensconced in the warmth on a cold crisp day, whilst drinking a glass of bubbly! Oysters are particularly good in winter in Brittany and I think it is quite possible, I ate a small child's weight in oysters. Also make certain to try the crab - fortunately, there is a big enough pot in the gite to cook it in. In fact, the gite is very well stocked in the kitchen department. Christmas might seem a unusual time to chose to go away but having done it, we have decided we will be going away every Christmas. It removes the hassle and it is particularly good because, there are not as many tourists about. You get a better feel fr the area and get to discover the well hidden gems that the locals enjoy. Viji and Eddie are perfect hosts. They are friendly and go out of their way to make certain your stay is everything you hope it to be.

                                  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.

                                  I enjoyed a wonderful week at the gite . It is prepared to a very high standard and has everything needed for a relaxing holiday. Owners Kim and Deb are great and available for advice on the local area if needed. The site description is entirely accurate .Le Fouette is charming and is five minutes away. Lots of great places to visit within less than an hour. I would certainly go again and have no hesitation in recommending Ty Chouette .
