About the property

Two bedrooms, one bathroom, tastefully renovated stone gite in rural Brittany

La Vieille Ferme (The Old Farmhouse) at Gayon, once a working farm, is now a tastefully renovated traditional stone longere, offering holiday breaks in Morbihan, southern Brittany. Le Grenier is a bright and spacious 2 bedroom traditional Breton stone cottage, located at the end of our longere, with a stylish, comfortable interior. The cottage overlooks a sunny and charming 18th century stone porcherie and original bread oven to the front, and has a private, enclosed garden to the rear, with its own barbecue and outdoor seating. Situated at the heart of our 7 acres of wildflower meadows, fields and woodland, it enjoys views of beautiful countryside with abundant wildlife, yet is only two minutes drive from the nearest village.

The cottage can sleep 4, and has an airy open-plan kitchen, dining room and lounge on the ground floor, with a wood-burning stove for those chillier evenings; upstairs a romantic double room with Juliet balcony, a generous twin-bedded room, and a family shower room.

There is plenty of parking on site.

A perfect couples retreat, but also ideal for small families (cot, high chair and stair gate available on request).

A generous welcome pack is provided, which includes all the basics (bread, milk, butter, tea, coffee, sugar, cooking oil, condiments) plus a few treats.

Why Alan & Mandy chose Ruffiac

We bought La Vieille Ferme (The Old Farmhouse) at Gayon, a year ago - we fell in love with it immediately, and moved here with our two cats. Once a working farm, it is now a tastefully renovated traditional stone longere, and we are offering holiday breaks in Morbihan, southern Brittany. With the nearest village of Ruffiac only 2 minutes drive away, and an enjoyable 25 minute stroll, you can pop into the baker for your morning croissants, the butcher for some of their delicious local sausages, the well-stocked supermarket for any other needs, visit the church, or the two welcoming bars and the restaurant. Close to the Nantes-Brest canal for cyclists and walkers, and only 10 minutes from picturesque medieval Malestroit and La Gacilly (home of the world famous photographic exhibition), yet still close to Josselin, Rochefort-en-Terre and the wonderful coastline of the Gulf of Morbihan.

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, somewhere to discover new exciting adventures (on land, sea or air), somewhere to relax and get away from it all, a cultural and historical trip, or just a base for cycling or hiking, then look no further. We are centrally based, surrounded by many wonderful towns and cities, theme parks, inland lakes, forests and standing stones, and yet only 45 minutes from the sea. With its own microclimate, Morbihan regularly enjoys a warmer and drier climate than the rest of Brittany.

There are also plenty of weekly markets around, not to mention the Vide Greniers - car boot sales for those after a bargain!

Beautiful stone gite in rural Brittany
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

A lovely gite in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We received very good instructions of how to get to the gite. The owners made us very welcomed and had left us various goodies to eat .The gite has all that is required and with lovely country views. In this part of France you can walk, cycle or explore the countryside by car there is plenty of wildlife to see plus lovely villages to explore.

Alan and Mandy obviously care about their properties and are very good hosts.

We only stayed 4 nights but would happily of stayed longer. John and Sue from Salisbury

Wunderschönes Steinhaus in einer ruhigen Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschön renoviertes Steinhaus mit moderner Ausstattung. Alt und neu ergeben ein sehr geschmackvolles Ganzes und es ist alles da, was das Urlauberherz begehrt. Alan und Mandy (die beiden Eigentümer) haben das Haus mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, sodass man sich rundum wohl fühlte.

Die Eigentümer haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen und standen für Fragen während des Aufenthalts stets zur Verfügung.

Sehenswürdigkeiten der Bretagne waren in Tagesausflügen gut erreichbar.

Wir haben uns wegen der ruhigen Lage und der komfortablen und geschmackvollen Ausstattung sehr wohl gefühlt - Erholung pur.
