Driving From Pontivy
Head for the town centre and look for the very large square in the main street (used for parking). At the square take D2 in the direction of the river. Turn left and then right over the bridge following the signs for D2, Le Sourn at the small roundabout. Stay on this road until you reach Melrand and take the first turning into the Square (to the left of the Church). Take the first (proper) road on the left signposted Bieuzy (there is a hairdresser on the corner). Stay on this road (at least 3kms) until you reach a t-junction. Turn right and follow the road for approx 1 minute until you come to a very large right hand bend. You will see the turning for La Metairie on the left. Follow the lane, heading for the small settlement of houses you will see off to the left. The lane ends at black gates – you have arrived! Just open the gates and drive in.

Driving From Baud
From the motorway exit at Baud (not Gare de Baud) and head for town centre. After a minute or so you will reach a small roundabout where you will see Carrefour to the left. Go straight across and carry on until you reach a 2nd roundabout and turn right into Intermarche, go past the petrol pumps and out to the road below. Turn right at the roundabout – you will now be on the D142 to Melrand. Continue along this road passing straight through St Barthelemy and St Thuriau. You will eventually reach a railway crossing and large bridge over the river. Follow the road up the hill and as you come down the other side look for a junction with 5 roads – you need the 2nd turning on the right signposted Bieuzy D156. Follow the road for approx 1 mile and look for a small stone farmhouse with a large caravan behind (on right hand side). The next lane on the right which is on a big left hand bend (AFTER the turning by the small farmhouse) is our turning – it is signposted La Metairie but you can’t see it coming from this direction! Follow the lane, heading for the small settlement of houses off to the left. You will arrive at a pair of black gates which is La Metairie Farmhouse - please open the gates and drive in.
