One double, one twin/double and also a double sofa bed in the living room. We loved the completely open beamed space upstairs so we planned the rooms upside down to keep that feel - so the sitting room and dining room occupy the full length of the first floor and have great views across the valley to the village of Langoelan and beyond. There's an original stone fireplace with woodburner and TV/DVD/CD player with Freesat, bar billiards table and plenty of books and games to occupy your evenings. The dining table seats 10 easily - so works well if you wanted to book both houses but have the option of eating together. The large farmhouse kitchen has a table to seat 6 and is equipped to a very high standard - including plenty of cookbooks should you feel the urge to try something new and a dishwasher. Relax with a book or dine al fresco on the south-facing or west-facing terrasses which are for your private use. BBQ available.
Farmouse Locmaria (Sleeps 4/6. 2 Bedrooms)
Locmaria - rural tranquility
Welcome to Locmaria - two sympathetically renovated and beautifully presented 18th Century stone farmhouses set in 4 acres with fantastic views over the peaceful Breton countryside, just outside the village of Langoelan. A real home from home and a great base for discovering all that Brittany has to offer - or if you prefer, you can simply relax by the pool, explore the fantastic countryside around the farm and enjoy some of our local restaurants. Farmhouse sleeps 4-6 and Grange sleeps 2/3.
We have worked hard to ensure that both cottages are furnished to a very high standard and are presented as we would wish them to be if we were coming here for our holiday.
Whether you are looking to relax by the pool with a book or need a comfortable base to explore Brittany, Locmaria is the perfect choice. We are happy to make recommendations for days out, restaurants, walks in the forest or by the Nantes-Brest canal.

About Nadine Mason
We're David and Nadine Mason and bought what was a ruined farm over 15 years ago and have enjoyed bringing these beautiful buildings back to life. We set out to create gites that are as we would want them to be if we were coming here on holiday. That's why we have furnished them with high quality furniture, generous amounts of crockery, glassware and cutlery and kitchen knives that get sharpened regularly! Locmaria is a haven of peace and we love to share it with our guests - many of whom have come back several times as they now love it as much as we do. We are always happy to go the extra mile to make sure you have a great stay - recommendations for places to visit, restaurant bookings or even sticking your bikes on the top of the Landrover so that you can start further afield.
Nadine Mason purchased this Farmhouse in 1998
Why Nadine Mason chose Langoëlan
We chose the area because it had lots of green-edged roads on the Michelin map - and the scenery and empty roads do not disappoint whether you are travelling by car, motorbike or bicycle. We can recommend some great routes for rides out in the car and some of the best motorbiking roads in France - often with some great recommendations for attractions and of course lunch along the way. Our location in the centre of Brittany means you really can make the most of all that the region has to offer - but is still accessible for a weekend visit. We love the peace and quiet but also quick and easy access to bustling towns, great restaurants and beautiful beaches. Nowhere is more than 90mins drive through beautiful countryside on empty roads but there's loads to do in the local area too.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
A real home from home that allows you to relax from day one so you get the best from your holiday - however long you spend with us. We take pride in providing you with great quality furnishings and a brilliantly equipped kitchen - including a block full of sharp knives and a stack of cook books just in case the local food inspires you to start cooking. The property is surrounded by fields and so you can find your own quiet spot to sit and read or just enjoy the views across the countryside - or you can have a swim in the heated pool or take a run around the local lake if you fancy a bit of exercise. We have two lovely and very friendly french spaniels and we are happy to consider requests for our visitors to bring their dogs to stay too. There are lots of fantastic walks to enj

Fabulous property offering an ideal base to explore Brittany
We (family of 4, plus dog) have returned from a wonderful holiday in Brittany and can highly recommend Locmaria.
The farmhouse has real character and is well equipped to provide a 'home from home'. For rainy days there are numerous DVDs to choose from, not to mention the 'bar billiards' and plentiful games to keep the younger members of the family happy. Outside, there is plenty of space to roam around and the well-kept swimming pool and boules court add to a fun holiday.
Locmaria is ideally situated to explore Brittany. There is plenty to see and do nearby with beautiful medieval towns, beaches, cycle paths and dog walks all within easy reach.
Nadine and David's kind hospitality was a real highlight of our holiday. They really know how to spoil their guests and offer the best advice ranging from where to go, best routes to get there to the best patisserie for the morning croissant run.
We hope to be back!
Perfect holiday stay!
Our family of 6 (2 adults, 3 kids and one dog) just returned from a fabulous week at the farmhouse at Locmaria and I can truly say it is an ideal holiday stay!
The farmhouse has been lovingly restored by the owners to retain many original features but is also equipped with the modern conveniences (wifi, full kitchen, laundry facilities) that make the stay feel like home. The location is perfect; rural and quiet, but also easy access to many towns, the coasts and forest hikes. The swimming pool and 4 acres to explore were the highlight for the kids and or dog loved being able to roam with the host pooches!
Nadine and David both truly went above and beyond to make us all comfortable and to enjoy the 'off the beaten tracks' delights that Brittany has to offer and have so many helpful suggestions to really explore the region.
Many thanks to Nadine and David for the memorable holiday, we are looking forward to our next visit!
Thank you, Sara, for your lovely review of your stay at Locmaria. David and I enjoyed sharing our little corner of Brittany with you and are delighted that you all loved it as much as we do. Our dogs were thrilled to have Frau join them for walks and swimming too. We would love to welcome you all back to Locmaria for another holiday. A bientôt!
A wonderful stay in the heart of Brittany
This summer we spent a week (14-21 July) with our family in the farmhouse in Locmaria of David and Nadine Mason.
Except that it was a beautiful holiday home with a lovely pool in a beautiful setting, David and Nadine were extremely friendly and helpful owners. They had great tips for day trips and thanks to them we really enjoyed it.
The house is cozy, the beds are super and the kitchen is very well equipped. So good that we could easily bake a birthday cake too!
We have been a day to the north coast and the south coast, but have also nicely located at the beautiful pool. It is really quiet at night, so we slept wonderfully.
In short, a place to definitely go back to, but especially to meet David and Nadine again.
Thank you for your kind comments, we are really happy that you found Locmaria to be a special place. It was our great pleasure to welcome you to Locmaria and it would be our even greater pleasure to welcome you back on a future occasion.
Un havre de paix
Quel bonheur d’avoir découvert votre petit coin de paradis. J’étais déjà en admiration en arrivant mais quand j’ai découvert tout le travail accompli grâce à vos albums de photos retraçant l’évolution des travaux, nous vous félicitons tous les deux.
Vous avez rénové les vieilles longères avec beaucoup de goût pour en faire de vrais petits bijoux.Merci pour votre accueil chaleureux et votre gentillesse.
Quel plaisir de partir avec les chiens en balade dans les terrains à proximité du gîte. On se sent les rois du monde et en même temps si petit face à la nature.
Chaque jour, le coucher de soleil est un ravissement pour les yeux.
Au plaisir de vous revoir et bon courage pour la suite des travaux.
Beautiful, relaxing....quality family time
We have just returned from yet another relaxing holiday at Locmaria. We visited for the first time in 2016 and could not wait to return in 2017. Our girls aged 11 and 9 years absolutely love Locmaria as do we. There is so much to do from the gorgeous beaches, canoeing, markets to Medieval Villages. Our girls favourite is returning from a day out to the heated swimming pool and not to mention the gorgeous dogs Effie and Isla. To sum it up the setting of the farmhouse is idyllic and restored to perfection. The swimming pool as I said is perfect and the dogs are just beautiful but Locmaria is made even more special by the hosts David and Nadine! We can't wait to return in 2018!
David and I are very touched by your kind and generous comments. We loved having you back to stay at Locmaria again - it was our pleasure to share it with such a lovely family and we hope you will indeed be back before too long. The dogs loved spending time with your beautifully behaved girls and we hope you'll think about bringing your dog with you next time too so you can have the whole family here!
An amazing holiday house and location
We had a fantastic week staying in Locmaria. The house is stunning and is located in huge grounds which we were able to freely roam around. Nadine and David were amazing hosts, who happily passed on information and tips on how to get the most from our holiday!
Our 3 children loved the pool and used it numerous times during the week. There is plenty to do in the area: we kayaked along the Brest canal, went to the beach and visited the local towns. A well stocked supermarket is very close and a bakery selling wonderful bread which also brews beer!
The WIFI and very large TV also kept our teenagers entertained.
We will be going back!
Locmaria's central location means that we can recommend quiet and unspoiled beaches on the north and south coasts less than 1hr away (1hr30 for the west coast) - whether you want a gently sloping sandy beach with rockpools for the family or wide open beaches with atlantic rollers for surfing/kite-surfing. We know some great restaurants if you fancy enjoying some fresh Breton seafood. The Lac de Guerlendan 20mins drive away has beaches, watersports, walking, horse-riding and restaurants.
Ferry Ports: Roscoff 1hr15, St Malo 1hr45, Caen 3hrs, Cherbourg 4hrs, Le Havre 4 hr 30 Calais 6-7 hrs.
Airports: Dinard, Brest and Rennes are all approximately 1hr30 from Locmaria.
You will need a car during your stay (or bicycle if you are very keen - and fit!).
The village of Langoelan (1 mile) has boulangerie, bar, 2 restaurants and petrol station. The charming town of Guemene sur Scorff (5 miles) has supermarket and other shopping amenities, banks, bars & restaurants, doctor, dentist and vet. We are happy to make suggestions for visits to local towns and attractions - there's plenty to do within 30mins to 1hr of Locmaria, whether you are looking for activities, culture, history, scenery, things to keep the children entertained or a cracking meal.
We are happy to consider dogs - at our discretion following a conversation with you - and we will ask for a higher deposit. However we are happy to share our Picardy spaniel Islay and our Picardy Blue spaniel Fy with you for the week if you prefer to leave your dog at home.
