Brittany Gites For Adults & Couples Only
According to Ralph W. Emerson, "Life is a journey, not a destination". A holiday, however, is all about the destination.
South Morbihan is typically 3-4 degrees warmer than Côtes-d'Armor, Finistere and Normandy

Offering a high standard of self-catering accommodation and set in over 3 acres of romantic grounds and woodland, the gardens wind gently down towards a lake and continue to a meandering river. There is no passing traffic. The emphasis here is on peace and tranquility – the ideal location to relax and get away from the stress and strain of everyday life. With an abundance of flora and fauna, nature lovers, artists, honeymoon couples and birdwatching enthusiasts alike will feel right at home in our gites.

There are lovely local walks which many couples enjoy, and a little further afield the medieval towns of Vannes and Josselin are within easy driving distance. The beaches of the south coast and the beautiful Golfe du Morbihan are approximately 45kms from La Metairie. For the twitchers among us there's Kingfishers, Jays, Nuthatch, Tree Creepers, Bullfinch, Spotted Woodpeckers, Cuckoos, Owls, Thrush, Hawks, Falcons, Gold & Greenfinches, Bullfinches, Dunnocks... even Otters in the Blavey further downstream. Blavet Valley Lakes are just 10 minutes away for great carp fishing, and the area is also noted for its excellent walking and cycling routes.
The village of Melrand is just two minutes or so by car and has a superb French restaurant La Tourelle for romantic evenings out. Also in the village is an Italian restaurant with takeaway pizza, other shops for groceries and bread, a pharmacy, Post Office and bar/tabac. Also within easy reach is the town of Pontivy (watch video) and the beautiful village of Saint Barthelemy and Baud which has several quality eateries and restaurants.
