Large traditional longere sleeping 14 with an outdoor pool, peaceful and well positioned for exploring Brittany

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
St Maleu, Ereac, Brittany, Western France, sleeps 5-14 in 7 bedrooms.

Our lovingly renovated period longere sits in the valley of the Rance nestled deep in the heart of the Breton countryside. Set in two acres of private grounds with a heated swimming pool, this property offers peace and quiet with the opportunity for families and friends to make their own fun.

The accommodation comprises two spacious cottages at either end of the longere, joined upstairs by a further two bedrooms, one of which has a Juliet balcony. This layout offers great flexibility to groups of all types - separate living accommodation affords a little privacy, with the opportunity to socialise together as well, making this ideal for extended families and groups of families or friends.

The village lies less than two miles away with a local shop, bars, doctor, pharmacy and post office. There is also a basketball court for children and teenagers. There are various parks and swimming pools nearby at Lanrelas, Medrignac and Broons, and a large lake with a beach at St Launeuc (10 minutes by car) offers summer activities for children. Another lake for sailing and other watersports is at Jugon les Lacs (20 minutes away).

Access to both the north and south coast is very easy, about 45 minutes north and an hour and 15 minutes to the nearest beaches.

For historical interest, there are several medieval towns within easy driving distance, the most notable (and nearest) of which are Dinan and Josselyn. Dinan is a walled medieval town with lovely restaurants, a theatre, cinema and a small tourist 'train' for getting around. Plan to spend the day! Also worth a visit are Vitre, Vannes and Moncontour.

Fort La Latte, where Tony Curtis fought Kirk Douglas in the film 'The Vikings', is on the north coast near to some absolutely fantastic beaches at Pleherel and Les Sables D'Orr. Mont St Michel is about an hour away, and Brittany also offers zoos, an aquarium at St Malo, and various theme parks for children.
