Well equipped house; private garden with uninterrupted views and safe for pets
The property comprises two converted barns having all modern facilities, including broadband internet (never guaranteed) and sleeps 4+2 in the Main House and 2+2 in the Annexe (extra charge). It is in a quiet country lane making it very safe for children or pets. There is a pretty, south-facing private garden, which has stunning views across open countryside.
The property is ideally situated to explore the area; it is 10 minutes from the medieval town of Rochefort and 15 minutes from the river port of La Roche Bernard. It is 30 minutes drive to several lovely sandy beaches, with plenty of rockpools, and a similar distance from the beautiful town of Vannes and the rest of the Golfe de Morbihan. Further afield, there is the walled town of Guerande, the trendy resort of La Baule and the busy cities of Nantes and Rennes.

About the Owner
Activity and Interests
Set in the peaceful Southern Morbihan countryside, the house is ideally situated to explore the area; it is half an hour’s drive to several lovely sandy beaches, with plenty of rock pools, and a similar distance from the beautiful town of Vannes and the rest of the Golfe de Morbihan (sailing heaven).
Closer to home Le Haut Provost is 10 minutes from the stunning medieval town of Rochefort en Terre (a great place to eat out) and about 20 minutes from the picturesque river port of La Roche Bernard with its harbour, seafood restaurants and bars. There are also several cycle-routes close by. The pretty town of Redon (10 mins) has a good shopping centre, hypermarket and train station with a 2 and a half hour service to Paris.
Further afield, there is the walled town of Guerande, the trendy resort of La Baule and the busy city of Nantes all about an hour away.
We do hope that you enjoy staying at Le Haut Provost - it is perfect for a quiet chill-out holiday; after a day on the beach, or a long bike ride, it is wonderful to come back to a quiet retreat away from the holiday-hubbub. Perhaps wake up late the next day, coffee and croissants, a walk in the forest, wine with lunch, siesta, lie in the sunshine and read a book - fabulous!
