Beautiful stone gîtes
in rural Brittany

La Vieille Ferme (The Old Farm) at Gayon, once a working farm, is now a tastefully renovated traditional stone longère, offering holidays in Morbihan, southern Brittany.

We have three holiday cottages, La Crèmerie, La Petite Grange and Le Grenier, all with two bedrooms, which, if booked together, can  sleep a maximum of 14 people.

Our nearest village, Ruffiac, is only 2 minutes drive away, 10 minute cycle (borrow one of our bikes) or a 25 minute stroll, with a baker for morning croissants, a butcher for delicious local meat, a well-stocked supermarket, a quirky Spanish/French restaurant, two welcoming bars, a microbrewery, a church and a chemist.

We are only 10 minutes from picturesque Malestroit and La Gacilly, close to Josselin, Broceliande Forest, Rochefort-en-Terre, not far from the Nantes-Brest canal, and not forgetting the wonderful coastline of the Gulf of Morbihan.


Extra hygiene measures now in place

  • We will warmly welcome you with a smile (under our masks), but no handshake!

  • Social distancing will be carried out at all times.

  • The gîtes will all be cleaned, and disinfected, with special attention to doorknobs, light switches, and frequently used surfaces.

  • Handwash and tissues are provided in the gîtes, as well as hand sanitizer in the play area.

  • We have covered sofas with washable throws, please leave these in place.

  • All bed linen and towels will be washed at the highest setting; if you prefer to bring your own, please let us know and we will remove ours from the gîte.

  • If both La Petite Grange and Le Grenier have guests at the same time, we will ask the occupants of Le Grenier to use the rear entrance to the property, rather than the shared front hallway for access.

  • Extra time will be booked out either side of each reservation to help eliminate any potential virus, and guests are asked to leave the windows open when they leave to air the gîtes.

  • Please note: Arrival will permitted be no earlier than 4pm, and departure no later than 10am, to allow extra time for airing and thorough cleaning.

If you have any other queries, we are happy to help - just give us a call/email.

Stay at La Vieille Ferme

If you are looking for:
  • a romantic getaway;
  • a fun trip away with friends, or family;
  • new exciting adventures (on land, sea or air);
  • somewhere to relax and get away from it all;
  • interesting flora and fauna;

We are surrounded by many small cities of character, wildlife and adventure parks, lakes (some with beaches), forests and standing stones, and yet only 45 minutes from the sea.
With its own microclimate, Morbihan (little sea in Breton) regularly enjoys a warmer and drier climate than the rest of Brittany.
