Originally constructed as a presbytery and chapel in 1710, with the chapel disappearing at a later date to give way to farm buildings. Today the farm is set in 7 acres, with two acres of garden, overlooking the undulating countryside of southern Brittany. Situated in a secluded position with no passing traffic other than cars to our property and that of our one neighbour. Watch the sun rise over the Maize, celeriac and harricot fields surrounding us to the east of the property and the glorious sunsets over the grass cow field to the west of the property, set against the back drop of rural Brittany.

For those peaceful strolls, there is a chemin rural adjacent to the property which leads down to the woods and river. The river Evel offers excellent fishing, and the chemin rural continues on a marked route through the surrounding countryside and on to the nearest village of Guénin.



About the Farm. 2010 CROSS STONES

Our property is recommened as family friendly by

Holiday Tots


The surrounding fields are world famous for producing naturally occuring "cross stones". These are as the name suggests, stones in the form of a cross said to bring good luck to the bearer! Maybe you will be lucky and find one whilst you are here. Ask us and we will show you our examples. Also check the grounds for four leaf clover, it seems to grow here in abundance!



The local village, Guénin, is 3km from the property by road and, although small, offers a Boulangerie, Bibliotheque, Lake (with pedalos, climbing frame, swings, mini golf, small paddling pool and fishing) and three small bars. The nearest grocery shopping is located at the town of Baud (3km from the gites)and offers other amenities such as banks, supermarkets,pharmacy and doctors. Alternatively there is the pretty town of Locmine, or a little further afield, Pontivy.

Situated within easy reach of the N24 the property is centrally located to medieval market towns such as Auray and Vannes, which are a must to visit when in the Morbihan area of Brittany, as well as larger towns such as Lorient. Also situated about 30 – 40 minutes from the beautiful southern beaches of Brittany – including Quiberon and Carnac where you will also be able to see the “alignements de Carnac” or “Menhirs", the famous standing stones.

About the Farm. VIEW PICNIC TABLE


These rural gîtes are set around a large non working farm courtyard with views to every aspect. Each gîte has an individual garden area which opens out on to the main grounds offering two pools. The first pool is a plunge pool which is exclusively for the use of Pressoir guests and is located in the garden of LE PRESSOIR. The second larger pool is kidney shaped and is situated in the main garden area and is a shared pool. This pool has integral steps and graduated depths for all the family to enjoy. It is surrounded by a patio area with sun loungers and is completely enclosed for safety(Regulation security fencing and security gate).

THE CLIMATE

Keen French gardeners know that this part of South Brittany - the orange section on the map - has a mild 'oceanic' climate, having on average, over 2000 hours of sunshine each year, comparable with Toulouse or Montelimar in the South of France, and 200-300 more than inland Brittany. With long dry summers and mild winters, from April the sunshine average is over 7 hours per day.
