Description

Le Four a Pain

This is a little gem. Compact and functional but extremely atmospheric and fun, this little cottage has everything to make you feel like you are on holiday, far from the “madding crowd”. It has its own parking place and a charming, south facing, walled garden with views directly onto the Mont Dol. The kitchen is small but well equipped and the sunny dining room opens onto the terrace. The drawing room is cosy and takes you back in time with its bare granite walls and open fire place. There are two small rooms leading off the salon which both sleep two comfortably and a large master bedroom on the mezzanine above the salon. There is a large, sunny bathroom on the ground floor.

TV + DVD Player. Linen Provided. Pets welcome. Dishwasher, electric hob and oven. Communal washing machine and tumble drier. Ping pong table. Football area. BBQ. WiFi.

About the property

FR18703

Manoir de l'Ormelais offers three very different but equally charming gites to rent. The main house dating from the early 19th Century looks out over its own large walled garden is the grandest of the buildings. The other two buildings,

Le Vieux Manoir and Le four a Pain, cluster around the central courtyard date from the 17th-century, so they are smaller and cosier in style. All the gites blend stylish modernity with country charm. One of the main attractions of this site is its location. It is perfectly positioned for exploring the famous Mont St. Michel bay and other varied attractions of this beautiful region of Brittany. Discover its sandy beaches, rocky coves, estuaries, medieval towns, and many more places of interest. However, after a day packed with activities, the weary holidaymaker will be delighted to return to the peace and tranquility of Manoir de l'Ormelais, to stretch out on a sun lounger in the large gardens or take a leisurely walk through the fields.

About Amandine FRAIN

Olivier Dantec bought Manoir de l'Ormelais about 15 years ago. They took around 11 years loving restoring it. Now this wonderful old farm house and surrounding park has come back to life and is enjoyed by many who seek a peaceful holiday in cosy and relaxed surroundings. Olivier is a true Bretton, he likes nothing better than pruning his trees, talking to the owl that lives on the Four a Pain and riding around on his tractor.

Amandine FRAIN purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Amandine FRAIN chose Saint-Malo area

We bought this property because it was in a great location for setting up a holiday business, being equidistant between the historic site of Mont St Michel, the pirate town of St Malo and the Medieval town of Dinan. It also offered the added bonus of being only a quick ferry journey over to Jersey, Lucy's childhood home. We love this area because it is wild and beautiful and yet close to so many wonderful places of interest. We also all adore seafood! It is obviously a blessing to live in the countryside and also have access to the TGV which can whisk you straight to Paris in 2 hours and 40 minutes!!

What makes this cottage unique

Living close to the most beautiful coast line is a huge gift and we find ourselves often walking along the windswept beaches in winter or rock pooling and swimming on the sandy, sheltered coves in summer. There is no end to the possibilities and the dear old Manoir has proven to be a great base for us. It is such fun for families as they can stay in large numbers all over the property in either the BnB or the Gites. They can enjoy being together but also retain a certain amount of autonomy and privacy. The beautiful barn with its pinp pong table is a great addition for all, especially in bad weather. The Manoir is a fabulous place too to hold a wedding or special event, although we only take these kinds of bookings off season.
