The Barn gite
Sleeps 6 plus cot. This gite is a comfortable, open-plan restored barn, facing south, in the sun all day, near the pool and sun-loungers. The barn gite has its own private patio, with garden furniture and charcoal-fired barbecue. The complex also has a games room with a pool table and exercise equipment. There is satellite TV and a music centre in the gite. You need only walk to the end of our lane, to find a chemin, which stretches across central Brittany, where you can jog, ride a bike or a horse, on this completely traffic free route. It will take you down to the village of St Guen (1km), where you can have a beer in the bar, or eat at the rustic restaurant or walk round the lake.
The barn gite is comfortable and modern, with a well equipped kitchen and each bedroom has its own bathroom.
Both the properties are open-plan with tiled floors, well-equipped kitchens and comfortable lounges. They both have french windows opening to patios, with garden furniture and charcoal-fired barbecues. The garden design allows both properties to enjoy private holidays.There is a double bedroom on the ground floor in each gite for easy access. Both properties have satellite televisions, DVDs and music centres. The pool is heated by solar panels and is shared between the 2 gites. The pool is fenced. The location of the gites is completely secluded. Outside activities include badminton and boules and there is a separate building used as a games room with a pool table and exercise equipment. At the end of our drive is a sandy, traffic-free track, for walking, cycling or horse-riding - the village of St Guen is 1 km. to the left, where there is a lake, swings, climbing-frames, an "ouvrier" restaurant and bar, which also sells bread. The larger village of Mur de Bretagne is 5 kms. from us.
