About the Owner

Married with 2 school kids now living near London. Enjoy travelling and have lived and worked worldwide and always wanted to own property overseas away from not too far from the sea.

Always liked France and Brittany and fell in love with property for reasons below - much more recently renting it to help cover costs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Everything went great and we loved staying there. Visits to the beach and the wildlife place were brilliant. There was a ton of information there, so I felt able to plan our days easily. The only information you need to update is that several shops in town were open on the sunday, so we were able to get food then no problem.

we'll certainly keep it as an option for future holidays

best, Tom"

Owner comment: Thanks for feedback. 'Wildlife place' referred to is Branfere, just 5km away. Many beaches nearby, Opening information now updated. Steve.

House with scenic beauty and near plenty of cultur

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 6 and had 3 glorious weeks at this property, surrounded by beautiful countryside...the views from the windows of the property are breathtaking. The children loved the garden, its swings and the rabbits on the lawn in the early morning. We ate outdoors in the shade of the privet most days, and even had a bbq before we left. The beaches of Kervoyal and Damgan were great an not far from the house. We are keen visitors of French castles and visited several both on the gulf of Morbihan and the Loire Atlantique. I think the family's favourite visits were the medieval ramparts of Guerande and the ruins of the Ranrouet. The region is well furnished with supermarkets and the restaurants in both Rochefort en Terre and La Roche Bernard are of a high standard. Truely a beautiful area, and the Bretons as charming and welcoming as ever.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your good review and recommendations and I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation. Most guests particularly enjoy the large garden and views from the house and the hedged outdoor picnic table is great for dining. Agree with your recommendations - next time we'll try the Ranrouet ruins :). Steve (Lucas - Owner)

superbe fin d'année 2015

  • 4 of 5

nous avons passé entre amis la dernière semaine de 2015 dans le gite des chênes, bien équipé , douillet à souhait , une terrasse agréable

Nous avons passé quelques soirées mémorables autour de la table du salon à jouer , à discuter , à jouer de la musique et gouter des bons petits plats

Merci de nous avoir fait découvrir ce petit coin de campagne Si vous y ajoutez une cheminée alors là c'est le pied!!

amicalement

Owner's Response: Bruno Merci pour votre bonne critique et nous sommes heureux que vous avez apprécié la maison et de la zone. Nous avons envisagé d'ajouter une cheminée à foyer fermé et nous avons obtenu des citations, mais la maison est actuellement rarement utilisée le plus de l'hiver, est déjà très chaud avec chauffage central au gaz, de sorte que nous avons dépensé de l'argent la rénovation et l'équipement de l'intérieur et le maintien de la garen bénéficier invités année tour de la place. Parfois, dans les prochaines années, surtout si quelqu'un voulait un hiver let 4-6 mois (ou nous gagner à la loterie), nous allons probablement obtenir une cheminée installé par un professionnel. En attendant hiver, vous pourrez profiter d'une maison chaleureuse et confortable, la terrasse plein sud, des attractions à proximité et un grand jardin. Merci. Steve (propriétaire)

Rural getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful quiet location, surrounded by fields, an ideal location for either a quiet getaway or family holiday. Within easy driving distance of both the local village and the more cosmopolitan La Roche Bernard, both of which provide varied and interesting walks should you so wish. Many beaches within easy reach and we would highly recommend the beach by Chateau de Suscinio. For the keen walker this area provides many and varied picturesque routes to explore. We would not hesitate to recommend this house to others wishing to explore the area.

Wonderful peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lovely house with a massive garden, the amount of birdsong was fantastic. Sitting in the garden with a glass of wine listening to a myriad of different birds was so relaxing. The house has all of the facilities you need, the local restaurant served a very nice meal but was only open for dining on Friday and Saturday evenings. Strongly recommend Rochefort on Terre and La Roche Bernard all in all a lovely first week of our holiday.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review and recommendations and glad you enjoyed your holiday. Most guests enjoy relaxing in the large open garden. La Roche Bernard is about 15 minutes drive away, a historic old town by the Vilaine river with great views and restaurants and boat trips. Rochefort en Terre is a quaint town almost like a fairy tale with cobbled streets and old buildings and is less than 30 minutes from the house. Steve

GREAT VACATIONS IN BRITTANY

  • 5 of 5

We have spent two weeks in Les Chênes and I can say that these were the best vacations in my life. The location is great – it is a very quiet and peaceful place. The house is good – spacious and well equipped, with big parking area. But the key point is the territory – the garden is really amazing, we spent every evening there. Even the kids, who usually prefer to stay inside with their gadgets, appreciated it. And to sit with a glass of wine at dusk was quite romantic.

There is a lot of good beaches in the region, we've been at five or six. In Damgan beach we collected oysters at low tide – it was a great experience. Nice landscapes in Quiberon Peninsula (cliffs on one side and beaches on the other), a really posh beach in La Baule Escoublac – actually one of the best I've seen in Europe. And a considerable number of beautiful medieval villages, small towns and castles (I highly recommend Rochefort-en-Terre and Josselin).

Special thanks to the Owner for the detailed information about the house amenities and the region in general. We knew exactly how to get to every beach and what were the working hours for every market (it was quite useful, because the market in every village takes place usually once or twice a week). Also the neighbors (Tony and Madge) were very friendly and helpful.

Summarizing my impressions I can say that Les Chênes is an ideal place for family vacations, especially for people coming from big and noisy cities.

Owner's Response: Sergey. Thanks for a great recommendation plus useful local information for potential guests on places to visit. Les Chenes is ideal for family vacations, and also for couples/anyone wanting to relax in a great rural setting with plenty of space, yet very close to local amenities and beaches/attractions. Regards. Steve

Beautiful and tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Les Chenes. It is set in a very peaceful part of Brittany with lovely surroundings. The property has good internet and TV provisions. The garden is large and the kids thoroughly loved it. Location is very good and can conveniently reach many beaches and towns within an hour. Highly recommended!

Location

From the Owner

1. Great location in France - easy drive from UK/France and S Morbihan was the warmest and driest part of Brittany, yet close to many attractions and seaside. 2. Secluded 'get-away' rural location with large garden and good views, well away from main roads, yet only 3km from nearest town for supplies. Love sipping French wine/eating bread and cheese, relaxing with friends and playing with kids in back garden, which seems a million miles from crowded SE England! 3. Characterful house fine for a few people - also with plenty of space for friends to stay - especially with large attic room for kids!
