Malestroit, Morbihan, Brittany
La Vieille Ferme (The Old Farmhouse) at Gayon, once a working farm, is now a tastefully renovated traditional stone longere, offering holiday breaks in Morbihan, southern Brittany. Le Grenier is a bright and spacious 2 bedroom traditional Breton stone cottage, located at the end of our longere, with a stylish, comfortable interior. It can sleep 4, and has an airy open-plan kitchen, dining room and lounge on the ground floor, with a wood-burning stove for those cosy cooler evenings; upstairs a romantic double room with Juliet balcony, a generous twin-bedded room, and a family shower room.

The cottage overlooks a sunny and charming 18th century stone porcherie and original bread oven to the front, and has a private, enclosed garden to the rear, with its own barbecue and outdoor seating.

A perfect couples retreat, but also ideal for smal...

About the neighborhood
We are situated near to the Nantes-Brest canal for cyclists and walkers, 10 minutes from picturesque medieval Malestroit and La Gacilly, yet still close to Josselin, Rochefort-en-Terre and the wonderful coastline of the Gulf of Morbihan.
Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, somewhere to discover new exciting adventures (on land, sea or air), somewhere to relax and get away from it all, a cultural and historical trip, or just a base for cycling or hiking, then look no further. We are centrally based, surrounded by many wonderful towns and cities, theme parks, inland lakes, forests and standing stones, and yet only 45 minutes from the sea.
Getting around
Cyclists love the Voie verte, and the scenic canal-side routes running from Nantes-Brest. You can even hire electric bikes nearby! And for the more energetic, our nearest VTT trail starts in Ruffiac.
There are plenty of hiking trails too, not to mention stables for countryside horse rides.
Trains run regularly from Redon, throughout Brittany, taking the strain out of travelling.

Railway: Redon Gare: 19.3 mi

Situated only 10 minutes from Malestroit, our nearest airport is Rennes, but there are also regular flights from Dinard, Vannes and Nantes, ferries from St Malo, Roscoff and Cherbourg and the nearest train station is Redon.
If you are planning to use Brittany Ferries, once you have booked your stay with us, we can offer you a 20% discount off standard car and passenger fares.
