Hidden away in a hamlet down a country lane and well screened behind hedges and trees, is nestled this renovated stone ‘longère’ style farmhouse which exudes welcoming charm and striking grandeur in equal measure.

Inside, the owners have blended traditional and modern style resulting in a warm ambience and a high level of comfort. Carved wooden dressers and an open fireplace create a dialogue with modern artworks and décor. The recently refitted Italian style kitchen adds a splash of contemporary decadence.

Mixed age parties in particular will appreciate being able to spread out around the property, whether seeking a quiet sunny spot along the terrace, splashing in the pool, running around the garden or lounging in the informal reading/TV room upstairs.

A hectare of established and varied grounds opens out to the rear where a wide lawned garden slopes gently down to a small lake at the bottom. Located to the side of the house, the sheltered pool area boasts an ample sun terrace and a delightful view across the garden.

The nearest restaurant and bakery are in the village of Baye (2km) and a wealth of shops and restaurants can be found in the nearby market town of Moëlan sur Mer (4.5km) including crêperies serving the local savoury pancakes ‘galettes bretonnes’. A little further away, Quimperlé (6km) also has a weekly market held in an impressive covered marketplace, and the historic centre boasts some unique architecture including the 11th century round church of Sainte-Croix. Water lovers may wish to hire a canoe or kayak and explore the rivers which converge in Quimperlé, or head to the coast for windsurfing, sailing or surfing. For a family day at the beach, Le Pouldu (14km) offers three sandy bays and various cafés and restaurants. Other activities in the vicinity include mountain biking, horse riding and fishing.

The owners respectfully request that guests do not smoke inside the house. One twin bedroom has shorter beds more suitable for children.

Locality

Great Things to Do Near The Limes

Local specialities

Visit the highly regarded Boulangerie in Baye, perhaps for croissants or the essential baguette. Breton Chouchen (a honey mead) is also produced here. For seafood lovers, the famous Belon oysters can be bought directly at the little ports of Riec sur Belon or Merrien.

Concarneau

Take a wander through the winding cobbled streets of the 13th century Ville Close, Concarneau's iconic landmark, a walled city jutting out into the harbour. Enjoy a drink or lunch in a waterfront café and watch the continual comings and goings of both commercial and pleasure boats. Boats leave Concarneau daily for the beautiful Glénan archipelago.

Quimperlé

This small town has a very pretty town centre, with plenty of good restaurants and local craft shops to be found within its cobbled streets, and some attractive architecture to admire. A weekly market is held on Friday in the impressive covered marketplace.

Strike!

Go ten-pin bowling at L'Eden Bowl, in the Mellac commercial area on the outskirts of Quimperlé. They also have pool tables, table football, video games and refreshments... a great way to entertain the teenagers in your party!

Visit the beaches

Perfect for a family day out at the beach, Le Pouldu boasts three sandy bays and an abundance of cafes and restaurants for an enjoyable day out for the whole family.

Get active

Many opportunities will arise for getting active in the area. Choose from a variety of activities including mountain biking, horse riding and fishing.

A day out at the farm

The nearby 'Ferme des Landes' farm park covers 17 acres of countryside and is great for a family day out. Meet hundreds of farm animals from all around the world including kangaroos and alpacas. Get involved with petting corners and pony rides for children.

An a-maze-ing outing

Take the family to the 'Labyrinthe de Pont-Aven' which is open for the summer holidays. Families can enjoy the maize maze, the mini farm, playground, a picnic area, trampolines and mini tractors. A fantastic fun filled day for both adults and children!

Treetop adventures and more!

‘Le Village de Loisirs de Ty Nadan’ is a sports and adventure park at Locunolé, between Quimperlé and Le Faouët. There are two treetop adventure courses – minimum age 5 and 7 years respectively - plus a course including a 250m long zip wire (age 12+). On the same site you can hire segways, or go quad-biking or paintballing (minimum ages apply). There are also pony rides for all ages and canoeing/kayaking trips on the river or the sea.

Pont-Scorff Zoo

Come face to face with over 600 animals of 120 different species from around the world, including hippopotamus, giraffes, panthers, wolves and lemurs as well as the star attraction, white lions. Pont-Scorff is east of Quimperlé, about 20 mins drive from the property.

Hire a motor boat

(or sailing dinghy, catamaran, canoes or kayaks) from Cardinale Sud, who have a rental station at Port Manec’h beach.

Coastal walks

The whole of the Breton coastline is accessible to walkers, affording many superb views of the sea, of course, but also of the cliffs, coves, rivers and woodland along its length. The GR34 long-distance trail goes all around the coast of Brittany, once used by customs officials to look out for smugglers, now a well-marked leisure trail.

Les Roches du Diable

The boulders balanced alarmingly on top of each other at the gorges on the Ellé River, north of Quimperlé, are known as The Devil’s Rocks. On the border between Finistère and Morbihan, following the River Ellé’s west bank, a steep winding path leads to a dramatic viewing platform. The natural drama of this wooded valley with its acrobatic boulders tumbling down to the waters below stirs the imagination.

Paddle on the river

The rivers Isole and Ellé meet in Quimperlé to form the Laita, and you can hire kayaks or canoes to see the town from the water.

An arty day out

Head to Pont-Aven, home to many art galleries and antique shops, as well as the Paul Gauguin Museum, an homage to this famous painter who was inspired by this area and in turn has made it one of the most important towns for art sales in France.

Les Petits Ports

Why not do a tour of the pretty little fishing harbours along the Moëlan coastline, perhaps stopping off for a drink or lunch en route. The ports of Brigneau and Merrien are signposted from the crossroads in the centre of Moëlan. To reach the port of Doëlan head for Merrien initially; after 2.5km the road splits and Merrien is to the right whilst Doëlan is straight on.
