We really enjoyed our two weeks at "Le Beau Manoir". The property had everthing you would need and was spacious enough for the five of us.
It is in a very peaceful location yet only a 5 minute drive from Pluvigner, which is a bustling town with many facilities (e.g. good supermarket, 3/4 bakeries, bars, restaurants etc).
The coast is only an easy 30min (or so drive away) and the owners helpfully provide details of some good beaches which we found to be really nice.
There are also plenty of non-beach trips too such as Vannes (recommend using the P&R), Concarneau and Rochefort-en-Terre to make a few. Looks like there is good surfing near Quiberon with many surf schools around Plouharnel. There is enough to do in the area that I think we could easily do another two weeks without too many duplicate trips.
The only thing to consider is that the bathroom and toilet (separate) are on the ground floor opening onto the living space: not a problem for us as a family but worth remembering of you were travelling as two couples (the house has beds for 7 plus two cots).
I would recommend staying here to anyone who is coming to this part of Brittany due to the location. The owners are lovely and right next door if help is needed and there is a large file of information within the property.
Finally, the Internet speed is very good (very useful as we found phone signal hard to come by!). TV is French channels only as far as we could see...a welcome break for us so not a problem but worth noting of you are from the UK and were hoping to watch British TV of an evening (common enough at other places we have stayed around France).
Wow...where to begin? Upon arrival I could see as we drove down a private lane, it was going to be special. Greeted warmly by Marie and her Papa, we instantly felt at home. Then we stepped inside...wow. Old and original, rustic charm galore. It was like a fairy tale. Then I stepped outside, and almost cried. The sound of the babbling stream, hydrangea galore and shady trees were all a sight to behold. I may add we arrived in 30 degrees to a cool haven in the mill. I slept for the first time in weeks as I was finally comfortable!
Marie took us to see the pool...more wows and although late, we could not resist a cooling dip.
Plenty to see and do BUT so tempting to stay home in the haven that is the mill.
I must add that the artwork all around is splendid. Marie is so talented and so lovely. We were treated to an opening of her art exhibition too...thank you. The girls enjoyed having a go at some art too.
It was my husbands 50th birthday, what a perfect place. Do not hesitate to book! Missing you already xx
