Beautiful stone gîtes
in rural Brittany
La Vieille Ferme (The Old Farmhouse) at Gayon, once a working farm, is now a tastefully renovated traditional stone longere, offering holidays in Morbihan, southern Brittany.
We currently have two holiday cottages, La petite grange, which sleeps 3-4 adults, and our slightly larger cottage, Le grenier, which sleeps 4.
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 church, a restaurant, two welcoming bars, a microbrewery and a chemist.
We are only 10 minutes from picturesque Malestroit and La Gacilly, close to Josselin and Rochefort-en-Terre, not far from the Nantes-Brest canal, and not forgetting the wonderful coastline of the Gulf of Morbihan.
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);
a place to relax and get away from it all;
interesting flora and fauna;
a cultural and historical trip;
a base for cycling or hiking;
or just want to experience Bretons' gastronomic delights: wonderful seafood, crêpes, galettes, Kouign-amann, and the local ciders, beers and pommeau...
then look no further!
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.
OUR GITES: La petite grange and Le grenier
The two cottages are located at the end of our stone longere. They have been updated with stylish, comfortable interiors and overlook a charming 18th century stone porcherie and original bread oven at the front. Each has a private, enclosed garden to the rear, with its own BBQ and outdoor dining area, and a gate leading out to our fields. Situated at the heart of our 7 acres of wildflower meadows, fields and woodland, they enjoy the views and the tranquility of the beautiful countryside surrounding us.
We use LED bulbs wherever possible, and recycle as much as we can. The gites all have a bin for plastic and metals, as well as household waste, plus we have a recycling point for cardboard/paper and glass.
We have planted over five hundred trees and hedging since we arrived, and put up owl, bird and bat boxes. We also leave areas of our fields to go wild to encourage the butterflies and bees, as well as planting nectar-rich plants.
