These four characterful gites are nestled into the most picturesque setting on the banks of the River Blavet. With four acres of gardens to explore, an outdoor play area and a heated swimming pool, plus the river on your doorstep, there’s plenty to do in this idyllic little spot in France. The surrounding countryside is perfect for walking and cycling, and just 20 minutes away are the unspoilt beaches of the Atlantic coast.

Best bits
  • Acres of safe space for children to explore with fenced grounds, gated access to the river towpath, and extensive lawns for family fun.

  • Cycle hire is highly recommended throughout your stay to make the most of the wonderful towpath and countryside trails.

  • West Wake Aquatic Park is just 3 minutes away and has some great slides and an obstacle course, as well as wakeboarding and waterskiing for the over 8s.

  • The country town of Vannes is a must-see with its pretty cobbled streets, well preserved medieval houses as well as great shops, restaurants and bars.

  • Hire canoes or kayaks for a few hours of fun on the river itself.
