Lanmeur gite is a 2 bedroom detached house which has been well furnished with modern fittings and furnishings. It has a large south and east facing garden and is set in a tranquil rural location, within 3 miles of the shops.The garden has fruit trees at the top,shrubs, flower and a covered goldfish pond. It is fenced and ideal for pets and children. There is a BBQ, sun loungers and outside dining area. From the main bedroom there are patio windows onto the garden . The house is next to the huge Quenecan forest, with its many footpaths and wildlife... there are wild boar,red squirrel and deer to be seen, especially in the evening! Dog walking is straight from the house into the forest, or leave them in the enclosed garden whilst you discover the area! The Guerledan lake is nearby with its restaurants, water sports and small beaches. You can hire pedaloes and canoes here.
The kitchen is well equipped with a fridge freezer, washing machine, microwave, cooker (and a mini oven) , coffee machine, toaster etc. Electric heating throughout, with 8kw /day included in the price,extra usage charged at standard rate out of main season. Bed linen and towels also are included.

At Pontivy, there is an indoor swimming pool,and in summer there is also anoutdoor pool, where you can swim or just relax, read and have a picnic. Pontivy also a ten pin bowling alley and soft play area.. At Mur De Bretagne they offer sports in summer, ranging from horse riding, water ski-ing , sailing, walks,archery, football, and cycling. Many of these activities are free. St Aignan has an electricity museum, which is decidedly quirky!
There are many music festivals throughout the year, often free. There are plenty of markets in the area, and often there are concerts during the market as well.. often Breton music which has strong Celtic influences. But also from other cultures. Last year there was even flamenco dance and music! The abbay de Bon Repos is nearby, next to the canal. The son et lumiere in august is an evening spectacle, with over 400 actors. There is also a sunday market here, where fresh local produce is sold, and artisan crafts. The local bar has a terrace, and on sunday they have a musician playing. The meals are good here, and reasonable. I can recommend the nice restaurants, which have good lunches (ouvrier, or workers lunch) These are around 11 euros for 2-3 courses, and often include the wine. I find people come here for various reasons. They love the peace, yet not too far from the shops and activities. Also for the outdoor living here.. eating and relaxing in the garden. And for the lovely walks,and the spectacular lake. Often with pets, as the garden is enclosed and secure. Or for bike rides along the canal. Also for a taste of french living, where the pace is decidedly slow! Some come to tour , visiting the pretty villages, and the stunning coasts to the north and south. Many come to house hunt in the area. If you would like to know more, please just ask, and come and see for yourselves. Further photos and info are available on the web site (see facilities page on this advert) or on facebook.
