About the property

FR10

An impressive Breton Manor House and Longere situated in the picturesque Blavet Valley. In a quiet and rural setting, surrounded by open countryside, yet relatively close to the coast, numerous activities and places to visit, the ideal location for exploring Southern Brittany or relaxing and enjoying the peace and charm of rural France. Tastefully renovated to retain many of its original features and to offer a high standard of accommodation and modern conveniences whilst maintaining the character and charm of the original Manor house and farm. Both the Manoir and longere are spacious and benefit from having many large windows giving the interior a light and airy feel. See a panoramic view, floor plan and virtual tour on our web site. The local village is a few minutes away and has a bakery, supermarket, restaurant and bars. Less than ten minutes away is St Nicholas des Eaux, a wonderfully picturesque spot on the river Blavet where as well as visiting the restaurants and bars you can hire kayaks, go on a river cruise or cycle along the tow path. There are excellent beaches at Lorient (30 minutes) and the south coast including Carnac (40 minutes). The nearest ports are St. Malo (2 hour drive) and Roscoff (2 hours and 15 minutes). Both houses have new and efficient central heating systems making them ideal venues at any time of the year.

About Carol Watson

We live in West Sussex, my husband Tony is a project manager in the telecoms industry and I am a Training Consultant. We have three children ranging from 32 years to 17 years.

We bought Le Manoir de Mouflon 18 years ago and are fortunate to have a great team of people who have managed Mouflon for us for a number of years.

I was brought up in Cornwall and my family were hoteliers. As a teenager I used to work as a waitress and chambermaid in the holidays and at weekends. We joined the family business for a few years and managed a 50 bedroom family hotel in Newquay. Owning our own holiday business was something we had always aspired to.

We now live in West Sussex, close to Portsmouth which is handy for the Ferry. We visit Mouflon about four times a year, sometimes to do some maintenance and decorating other times to enjoy the house and area, usually with the extended family or groups of friends. I always return feeling refreshed and wishing I could have stayed longer!

Carol Watson purchased this chateau / country house in 1998

Why Carol Watson chose Pontivy area

Mouflon had been empty for many years when we first saw it and was totally neglected and overgrown. When we started clearing the property we even found a small cottage we hadn't realised was there. The location is perfect but the first thing to hit you is the sheer size of the house. It had been in the same family for many generations and the last owner was a spinster who had spent 10 yrs in a nursing home. We found many of her belongings including photos, letters and documents dating back to the 1700's. I keep them in a suitcase but should really do something with them. The house still has many original features, some parts date back to the 1650's. I really like the unusually large windows, it means the house is really light and often sunny .See some photographs of Mouflon as it was when we first bought it on our facebook page Le Manoir de Mouflon

What makes this chateau / country house unique

When we visit Mouflon we like to take friends and family, usually with plenty of children. There is space for the children to roam freely and very little traffic to worry about. Although the area is rural and relatively peaceful it is touristy enough to provide plenty of 'entertainment' pretty villages, medieval towns, shopping, restaurants, zoo's, adventure parks and plenty of beaches. What often happens is the group divides into small groups, some to golf, others to the town for shopping/coffee and some just chill out by the pool.

We renovated the house with large family groups in mind so there is minimal clutter, plenty of kitchen equipment, basins in every bedroom and kitchens and bathrooms to match the standard you would have at home. It's also nice not to have the owners on site

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: The Manor House is an impressive stone house with spacious, light and airy rooms, many original features including superb wooden floors, all tastefully decorated and well furnished. The large kitchen/dining room is at the centre of activity in the house. It is light and airy with lots of windows, yet can still be warm and cosy. The Longere is a traditional Breton Long House, newly converted to provide superb accommodation of a very high standard. The 'piece de resistance' is the very large open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area. It is light and sunny, stylishly decorated and furnished with lots of large windows. French windows open onto a private patio area, the ideal spot to sit and have breakfast or morning coffee with unrestricted views of the open countryside. Visit our web site for a panoramic view, floor plan and virtual tour. The properties are not suitable for disabled/wheelchair use. Outside: Surrounded by open countryside and on a quiet country lane. The large garden has plenty of lawn for ball games, a children's play area with a sand pit, table tennis and trampoline. The heated swimming pool (shared by the two houses) is 10m x 5m with Roman steps, secure fencing and plenty of room for sun loungers. The pool is available from the beginning of May to the end of September and by arrangement at other times of the year. Both houses have a private, south facing sun terrace with wooden patio furniture and a barbecue. There is ample parking next to the properties.

Great house and setting.

  • 5 of 5

Great stay at Mouflon.

Lovely house - durable inside and not too fussy so ideal for a family with kids.

Safe, heated pool in the garden which the kids were never out of.

Ping pong, barbecue, bikes. Local river, golf, beaches.

Would certainly go back.

A very good property for a large family.

  • 4 of 5

Peaceful location amongst farmland fields. Sandy beaches and interesting towns within 30-40 minutes' drive. Large rooms with "homely" ( ie well-used and not modern ) furniture. Plenty of kitchen cutlery/crockery/utensils but a few things missing ( which we borrowed from neighbouring holiday-home) eg potato peeler, potato masher. The cooker was tricky to use because markings had worn off, and it had not been cleaned properly before our arrival. Excellent hot water system. Large garden with a good/safe pool, two trampolines, a table-tennis table, new BBQ and other equipment for garden games.The five children in our party (aged one to eight) loved playing in it. UK TV programmes accessible.Sharing the gardens/pool with neighbours was not a problem. Disappointed that the "catering" option advertised on website did not turn out to be available. All of the family loved staying in this property!!
