Gîte paisible et calme pour 2 personnes
Belle propriété en Bretagne, centrale et rurale. Gîte très calme dans un environnement parfait pour qui aime la nature, les oiseaux… Suffisamment proche de tous commerces, et de la forêt de Brocéliande. Très ombragé. Nous avons beaucoup aimé.
LOCAL AREA: Maison Petite d’Hote is 4kms, just a 5 minute drive from the village of Mauron. Here you will find boulangeries, bars, banks, a restaurant and a supermarket.
There is a wonderful lake walk in Mauron and also a ‘Geology Walk’, (Sentier géologique). You can also walk directly into Mauron (about 20 minutes) following the path almost opposite the house.
There is a lovely picnic area, place for BBQ, a good place to spend a couple of hours. The geology walk adjoins the lake, it is very well set out and you can follow a route with stop offs, boards explain the geology and the rocks are on display as well.On the Lake in Mauron are Grebes , Divers, Heron, Cormorant and smaller weather fowl depending on time of year.
A little further afield is the medieval town of Josselin with its imposing chateau perched high above the Nantes-Brest canal.
Ploermel is about 25 minutes away where there is a lake with water sports, a sandy beach and bars and restaurants.
About an hour away is Vannes. This is the administrative centre of Brittany. It is a beautiful medieval city with some lovely buildings and shops and plenty of restaurants, many based around the bustling harbourfront.
Another lovely medieval town worth visiting is Dinan, just under an hour away. There are cobbled
streets, plenty of shops and numerous bars, cafés and restaurants.
The UNESCO Heritage Centre of Mont St Michel is within 1 ½ hours drive from the house.
THE BRITTANY REGION:
Maison Petite d’Hote is in the Department of Morbihan in the beautiful region of Brittany in northern France.
Brittany is easily accessible from the UK via several Ferry Ports and is also served by flights from the UK to 4 French airports.
From spectacular beaches with rugged coastlines, to vast sandy expanses, to peaceful woods and forests and the famous Nantes-Brest Canal, Brittany has all the makings of a perfect holiday.
The cuisine in the area includes crepes and galettes and of course the seafood! Mussels and oysters are available throughout the region, particularly in the summer months. Cider is produced here and local varieties are available in all supermarkets and restaurants.
During the summer numerous villages and town celebrate the "Pardon" which is predominantly a religious thanksgiving but is always followed by a celebratory meal (with a drink or two!) and Breton dancing.
