About the Owner

Over the years the extended Hodgins family has enjoyed holidays in many parts of France. Under the influence of the older generation who loved all things French, together we travelled widely throughout the country. We first came across the Morbihan and La Roche Bernard about 15 years ago. With a fairly young family and French speaking mum-in-law we spent a memorable few days on the town’s small campsite en route back home via Cherbourg. Many things struck us about the town, not least the friendly nature of the people we encountered. The town and the area grew on us and somehow or other we would visit it for a few days on almost every subsequent holiday. When the family decided to invest in a property in France some years ago there wasn't really a decision to be made - 'Bernard' had won our hearts!

Excellent family stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with our 5 year old daughter and two friends at the end of August, a late booking which Sylvia dealt with promptly. She was able to accommodate our Saturday to the following Sunday stay, which meant some of the party could take a more convenient flight home from Nantes, less than an hour away.

La Roche Bernard turned out to be an excellent place to visit and La Camille an excellent place to stay. The house is very well equipped, well cared for and in a very quiet location, with the river, marina and good cafes/restaurants a few minutes walk away. A ten minute walk through a very pretty park takes you into the centre of town, with shops, small supermarket and lovely buildings around the square and artisan quarter. We spent days both locally and further afield, finding plenty to see and do - the coast, salt pans and the chocolate box beauty of Rochefort en Terre. A great break and a highly recommended place to stay - thank you. And if any future visitors find a cherry tree growing in the garden, that's from the pip our daughter carefully planted - please water it!

A great August holiday

  • 5 of 5

We flew from the UK to Nantes airport and then a very straightforward drive to La Roche Bernard in under an hour.

The house itself if situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. The few neighbours we came across were very polite and always said hello. La Camille is instantly recognised by the beautiful flowers pots surrounding the front of the property.

The interior is spotlessly clean and has every possible provision you could need. The welcome hamper was extremely generous and the house is decorated and furnished very carefully to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There is a large selection of dvds and paperbacks for night's in.

The back garden although not huge is perfect and large enough for sun loungers, barbecues and some garden games. A real sun trap.

The river is literally a minute's walk away as are the restaurants and bars along the front. We enjoyed meals out or an early evening drink in the sun whilst watching the boats. Five to ten minutes in the opposite direction takes you into the main town which is great to stroll around, has a few shops, bars, restaurants and an artisan quarter.

We visited with two children aged 6 and 9 and the four of us enjoyed a great week. Communication with the owner was quick and efficient and every question answered. We would highly recommend to anyone.

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here last year and hoping to return soon. The house itself is very comfortable and has everything needed to make it a home from home. The location is great. A short stroll in the morning for the all important fresh bread and again in the afternoon for a relaxing coffee and walk through the old town. BBQ at the house or visit a different restaurant or bar nearby each evening for food and drink. Lots of interesting places to explore nearby when you want to get out and about.

Nice house

  • 4 of 5

Nice house in good location. Good size living room and bedrooms with lovely garden. Right in the middle of things - not a long walk for anything really. Enjoyed!

Ashore and Afloat

  • 4 of 5

La Camille provided us with the perfect combination. A boat in the marina and a house with a garden for a week with friends who did not want to sleep on board. What a luxury. The house was perfectly situated for us and the patio meant we did not have withdrawal symptoms from our normally outdoor life. Everything worked well and it was great to be able to have feet firmly on the ground for a change. Our partially sighted daughter found it an easy house to get around and was immediately relaxed and "at home" Thank you Sylvia.

Best ever

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a home from home with cafe's and shops within walking distance and we got it in abudance. La Camille is a lovely house fully equiped and in a super location.

We had two weeks here and wished we could have stayed longer.The house is clean and in excellent condition and has everything you could possibly need.

It is a two minute walk to the marina with its cafe's and resturants and lovely views and about 5 minute walk up the hill to the town full of individual shops, cafe and resturants. The house is in a quiet location with friendly neighbours.Would fully recommend La Camille to anybody wanting to go to Brittany.

Location

From the Owner

What was it that appealed to us about the place? Well we loved what we knew of the town, we loved what we knew of the surrounding area, the climate – this corner of Brittany enjoys a very pleasant micro climate –was delightful coming as we do from cooler more northern climes and we felt at one with 'la vie quotidienne'. We wanted to spend some more time here so it really just was a question of finding a property in the right location. In ‘La Camille’ we are satisfied that we have done that. It is in a quiet, end of cul-de-sac situation in a small development of similar houses just minutes away on foot from all the amenities of the town.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

La Camille is ideally placed for those who want to spend time at the coast. Beautiful sandy beaches and some sectacular walking country are accessible within a short car journey. Amongst those that we can recommend are Penestin (15mins), Quimiac & Damgan (25mins) and chic La Baule (30mins). Convenient free parking exists adjacent to each location. Delightful Piriac sur Mer with its beaches is also well worth a visit. The coastal walk (c. 90 mins) from Quimiac to Piriac is a must!

Travel:

La Roche Bernard is accessible from Nantes, Rennes, Brest and Dinard airports. Nantes airport is a 40 minute drive from the town, while Rennes airport can be reached in around one hour. Journey time from Brest or Dinard airport is a little over 2 hours. Several ports including Cherbourg, Roscoff, St Malo and Caen provide easy access by car. St Malo is the closest port, the journey time being around 2 hours 15 minutes, while Cherbourg requires just an extra hour on the excellent road system.

Distances:

There are many beautiful and interesting places to visit within a short drive of La Roche Bernard. Amongst these are La Baule, the walled cite of Guerande, picturesque seaside villages of Piriac-sur-mer and La Turballe, the chateau at Rochefort-en-Terre, the Yves Rocher eco village at La Gacilly, as well as the splendid beaches at Penestin, Quimiac and Damgan. All of these lie within a 30 minute drive. The real jewel in the area is the Golfe de Morbihan, accessible by boat for day trips.

Further Details:

La Roche Bernard has a full range of commerces from artisans workshops to speciality shops, to charming bars and restaurants and local supermarkets. All are within walking distance of La Camille.

The not to be missed weekly market which caters for every need comes to town each Thursday morning when there is a really convivial atmosphere and the cafes are thronged with residents and visitors alike.

Suggestions for eating out include Italian style La Casa with its riverfront terrace, les Copains d'a Bord, floating restaurant located in the Vieux Port, Le Sarah B providing cafe style food in an unique, friendly, rustic setting often with live music, l'Auberge Bretonne, a magnificent restaurant boasting a Michelin star and le Panoramique with its spectacular vista across the river and excellent chargrilled dishes.

The town itself has an interesting history that can be traced on foot by following a mapped out trail. Information panels detail significant evnts in the development of the town.

The Vieux Port and marina area is a hive of activity throughout the summer with magnificent craft, ancient and modern, coming and going. All this in the lea of the grand rock which towers over the river bank, an ancient vantage point guarded by a canon!

La Roche Bernard is a haven for those who enjoy boating. As well as the marinas creating interest for onlookers, a sailing school - Ecole Francaise de Voile - is located a few minutes walk from La Camille. Tuition classes for all ages are available at affordable prices, while canoes, kayaks and motor boats can be hired for use on the river.

Sightseeing boat trips and restaurant cruises on the Vilaine between La Roche Bernard and Arzal towards the mouth of the river depart from the riverfront on Les Vedettes Jaunes.

In and around the town there are many opportunities for walking. Local walks are signposted and mapped. Moving towards the coast cliff top and coastal walks provide amazing scenery and the freshest of air.

Facilities

From the Owner

Many holiday properties lay claim to being 'conveniently located' but really the phrase was coined to describe La Camille. A wealth of restaurants to suit all tastes and sizes of pocket lie within a ten minute stroll, likewise cafes and bars where you can sit and chat, sit and watch the world go by, or be treated to sometimes delightful, sometimes quirky live entertainment indoors or out. All sorts of cultural, artistic and leisure activities go on in the town. For us the essence of a good holiday involves comfortable accommodation, good dining, good company, an affinity with the area and its people and the pleasures of new attractions and experiences. This corner of France provides all of that and more.
