About Melvin hindmarch

Hi, After a lifetime of travelling abroad I settled in the Morbihan of Southern Brittany. Some years ago I had the choice of settling in the South Island of NZ, southern Ireland or here. I chose Brittany as it has beautiful countryside, lots of history and great beaches. Now have lived here for 14 years and have decided to live out my days here. I have been a professional builder all my life so it was a natural progression to renovate to a very high standard a cottage for holiday use and using criterior that holiday makers require, especially with families to have a fun time, but also allowing hardworking parents to relax as the kids can use the large gardens here and go off and explore this area. I have given much thought into the design and layout this cottage.

Melvin hindmarch purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Melvin hindmarch chose Camors

The area is the best of both worlds, set between two local forests, close to the Beautiful Blavet valley and not too far from the many sandy beaches. Away from the noise of main roads and motorways. The Cottage has it`s own 90 meter driveway.

What makes this cottage unique

Le Grand Tallen is close to the town of Camors, 1km and the larger town of Baud, 5 mins, but the cottage is not part of the village giving it a private situation.

The hamlet of Grand Tallen consisits of the cottage, and one other house (owned by us)

average rating of 4.0 based on 3 reviews

Typical comfy, renovated Breton cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Homely describes it well. It has been renovated but retains the charm of an old cottage.

It is equipped with everything you need for your stay and we were made very welcome by the English owner.

This time it was just the two of us, but it is ideal for a family with plenty of open space for children to play. Our grandchildren love it!

It is very peaceful, away from other houses set in a rural location. Just a short drive away are shops for everyday needs and the cottage is an ideal base to explore the coast and countryside in southern Brittany.

We shall certainly visit again.

This was an ideal holiday home for a family of 4.

  • 4 of 5

The pool and large garden were ideal for a relaxing holiday, especially as it was so quiet. The owner was very welcoming - thank you very much for the wine, chocolates and loan of the bicycles! The children loved playing with Julie, the dog, and the cats who adopted us for the week. We enjoyed local walks and trips to the beach which was 1/2 an hour away. We would certainly recommend this lovely cottage to other people who want to explore Southern Brittany.

very nice villa in a quiet location accessible to pretty villages, towns and the beaches

  • 4 of 5

property has been recently renovated and bedrooms were perfect for two families with children. the gardens are fantastic and the pool served our needs.

the host was very pleasant and accomodating and i would certainly recommend this property, the layout inside works well. we vistied many of the local towns and the restaurants were all good. the beaches at carnac and guidel were just over 30 minutes away and provided great days out, the market at hebonnet is worth a visit on a thursday morning and supermarkets are a 10 minute drive away in baud. we played golf at raimason which was a pretty 9 hole golf course 20 minutes from the property and with a couple of good bikes kept on sight managed to cycle one early evening down to the river 5k away although there were a couple of steep hills coming back.

all told great value for money and would certainly go back

Owner's Response: Thank you Graham for your review after your week stay at our cottage. We are delighted that you and your family had a great stay here and that you also enjoyed the local area, the golf, the beach at Carnac and the great beach at Guidel Plage. It was a pleasure to witness your younger children playing in the gardens and pool, and also with our cat and 6 kittens in the hangar...cannot promise there will be kittens next time though..(I hope not!!) Also pleased that the cottage worked well with your family and extended family of a total of 8 people. It was a great pleasure to have you all here, and thank you for leaving the cottage in good clean shape on leaving.

The cottage is situated within many early European sites which compose of various standing stones, some within walking distance. Carnac, being the most famous is 35 mins drive. Also the beaches at Carnac are nice and sandy with a gentle fall all of which make a good day out. Dinghy hire is also available at Carnac.

Blavet valley is 10 mins drive, great for hiking, sightseeing, picnics and cycling on the towpath. From Baud you can go about 30 kilometers in either direction.

Camors Adventure park, 5 mins drive, is a must for Energetic families!

Great golf course at Rimaison, 20 mins drive.

Go carting enroute to Pontivy (north) 20 mins drive.

Carp fishing at Lost er Lann, St Nicolas, which is a privately owned 9 acre lake, 15 mins drive. Carp lake and match lake. Match lake from 12 euros a day, Carp lake price on application. Rod hire. Bait available. Subject to availability in high season.

Our Cottage is set in a rural area where there are many different ancient walkways, so bring your hiking boots!
