Set in a stunning tranquil location in sunny southern Brittany, this beautiful hamlet of ancient granite cottages is home to the delightful Orchid Barn Cottage, a characterful yet boutique holiday hideaway where you can enjoy some well-deserved R&R.
With no overlooking neighbours and no passing traffic noise, this charming property offers peace, privacy and a total escape from the stresses and strains of everyday life. The location – secluded yet just a short drive to restaurants, shops and a picturesque lake – is perfect, and the cottage itself is colourful and authentic on the outside yet contemporary and luxurious on the inside. And with an inviting Jacuzzi on site not to mention a wealth of gorgeous green rolling countryside on the doorstep, you cannot fail to be soothed and invigorated by your surroundings. If you’re a couple looking for a romantic French getaway then look no further.
The gite is situated in the green and undulating countryside of the Scorff valley in the Morbihan region of Southern Brittany. Langoelan, our nearest village, is just a few minutes away, and here you will find a pretty church, a small shop selling basic provisions, a pizzeria and excellent French bistro. Langoelan is also home to the Lac du Dordu, a large lake which attracts varied wildlife and has a walking circuit all around it. Canoes and rowing boats can be hired in the summer and fishing is also popular. Guemene-sur-Scorff, a pretty medieval village with ancient houses, cobbled streets and a ruined chateau, is a 10 minute drive away, and has a lovely Celtic pub, restaurants, banks, and a large supermarket. The town of Pontivy, 25 minutes away, is full of shops and restaurants. Enjoy water sports on the Lac de Guerledan, visit the partially ruined Abbaye de Bon Repos, drive to the beaches at Port-Louis and Larmor Plage and dip into the warm, clear waters of the Golfe de Morbihan.
If you’re travelling by air, Dinard is 2 hours’ drive. St Malo is our nearest Ferry port at 2 hours drive. Roscoff is 2 hours drive and Caen is 4 hours drive.
Orchid Barn has one bedroom with a huge oak sleigh bed as well as a spacious lounge/dining room and wooden floors throughout. There is a kitchenette and a modern bathroom with a large shower, and the living space is well equipped with a TV, WiFi, a DVD player and an iPod dock. Spa toiletries and a generous welcome pack are provided.
The cottage has its own private garden and terrace, complete with a table, chairs, wooden sun loungers, a parasol and a BBQ. This is an idyllic spot for soaking up the sun or enjoying breakfast. Guests of Orchid Barn have private use of a large hot tub each day.
A generous welcome pack is included in the price of your holiday cottage, but on request we can also provide a home cooked meal for your arrival evening. The welcome pack includes fresh milk, butter, ham, cheese, salad, fruit, orange juice, eggs, pate, biscuits, tea, coffee, sugar, bread, jam and wine, plus seasonal produce from our organic vegetable patch when available. We also provide all the practical products you will need, as well as bikes, tourist info, guide books and walking maps. There is a second slightly larger cottage on site.
