About the property

Restored Farmhouse near Vannes, Morbihan, Brittany, France - In Rural Hamlet 15mins From Vannes and 30mins From Coast Sleeps Up To 9 (4 Bedrms)

The original farmhouse and adjoining barn have been sympathetically restored to create a comfortable and spacious 4-bedroomed family holiday home, while retaining much of its original rustic air. All rooms face south. Surrounded on three sides by about an acre of secluded garden, the house offers a 10-metre heated and securely fenced swimming pool (May 1st - Sept 30th), together with sweeping views over the neighbouring farmland and countryside. The extensive secure garden is safe for children to explore and enjoy, while the terrace surrounding the pool is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun. Served by the rural town of Grand-Champ (around 3 miles away) with its traditional shops and supermarket, the house is only a 15 minute drive from historic Vannes, with its medieval centre, impressive ramparts and award-winning gardens, and the stunning Gulf of Morbihan. It is also within 30-40 minutes of many beaches and charming small ports, both within the Gulf of Morbihan and on the Atlantic coast. Further afield, you may wish to visit Carnac with its rows of standing stones, the Quiberon Peninsula and Cote Sauvage, Concarneau, Josselin or Pont-Aven, the erstwhile home of Van Gogh and his fellow Impressionists.

About Robert Anthony Spray

I am a retired Finance Director and Management Consultant who has worked throughout Western and Eastern Europe on Industrial Restructuring and Regional Development. Although we still live in England, my extended family and I find very relaxing the French approach to life - work to live, don't live to work.

Robert Anthony Spray purchased this farmhouse in 2000

Why Robert Anthony Spray chose Morbihan

When I was working as a Company Director in NE France in the Nineties, my wife and I spent a holiday with a Breton colleague at his home in the beautiful Gulf of Morbihan. We fell in love with the area and resolved to buy a retirement home there. However, that was before our 5 grand-children started to arrive in England and our retirement home became, instead, our Family Holiday Home in France

What makes this farmhouse unique

The property has been designed to provide a self-contained family holiday home. Some of our guests just spend the days there, enjoying the sunshine, the pool and the garden. Others find it an ideal centre from which to explore the stunningly beautiful Gulf of Morbihan and surrounding region where the seafood is fantastic and the British are welcomed as friends and old allies by the local population.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fab week at your House and thoroughly enjoyed it- the weather was great too for most of the days.

I would give the house 5 stars and recommend it to anyone who was looking to go this area.

We all loved the pool area and the Kids loved being able to just nip in the pool each day without the usual trek off to the beach etc. The house was really well equipped and it was a delight to have such a well stocked kitchen even with sharp knives, which are usually missing on most holidays we have been to.

Great for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit and once again we had a lovely family holiday, with our teenage children. The house is really comfortable and well-equipped. The pool is great there is plenty of space to relax in the sun! Away from the house, there are lots of small towns and beaches to explore and the owners have provided very detailed information to help visitors enjoy their holiday. We will definitely be re-booking!

We had a fabulous week staying here for our third time. As always, we loved relaxing in the beautiful garden which has lots of space for the children to play games. We enjoyed sitting around the big table table outside with a glass of wine and the barbecue cooking! The Pool was beautiful with comfy loungers to relax by the pool. The House is very well equppied and again there is lots of space for all of us. Thanks for a great week. Amanda and family

Excellent property, well equipped, beautiful pool

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Kermenezy. The property was very well kitted out for a large family (10 of us).

There was plenty of space to sleep us all and the beds were really comfy. There was also plenty of space to live in too.

The garden was vast, and the pool a really great size for us all.

There was also lots to do in the area to keep us entertained.

Owner's Response: We're very pleased that the Larkum family enjoyed their stay at our House in the Vannes area of Brittany - their first visit to France, we understand. It is particularly pleasing to note that, although the number of guests was one above our recommended maximum, they still found that the Property, Grounds and Heated Pool all offered them loads of space and comfort.

Lovely, tranquil and great for the kids

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this beautiful location on the 8th August. It was easy to find and has quick access to Vannes and the local amenities whilst being subtlely hidden away from main roads and passers by. The grounds are lovely and the swimming pool was fantastic for the kids with the house also being well stocked with games and activities to keep them entertained. The local village is very well kept and has a good number of nice bars and restaurants as well as a very well stocked supermarket. We visited a number of nice places that were within an hours drive and would not hesitate to return. Well recommended for both adults who want some "self" time or a summer break with the children.

Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We chose the property mainly for it's heated pool and large, private, secure garden both of which we thoroughly enjoyed as a family. The location of the property suited us as were able to head to the beach within 30 minutes or visit one of the lovely markets in Vannes or Auray. However, we always enjoyed coming back to the tranquillity of the property and enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool! We would highly recommend this property and hope to come back again another year very soon.

As advertised. Well appointed. Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The owner provided full and accurate information and kept us updated from time of booking to arrival and was also available for queries to which he responded swiftly. Information on where to visit and things to do was excellent and plenty of guide books, maps etc were provided. The age range for our party of 7 was 18 to 59 and the property catered well for all. Pool, games and facilities were available and well-maintained including the kitchen which was well equipped. Beds were comfortable and we much appreciated feather duvets and pillows. We would certainly recommend the property to others.
