A characterful cottage set in the most beautiful grounds, experience the charm of southern Brittany at Maison de la Faune, close to gorgeous villages, rivers and beaches, near the flower-filled town of Quimperlé.

Start your morning with a coffee on the garden terrace listening to the birdsong, such a picture-perfect spot looking out towards the lavender and agapanthuses. Then take a stroll through the eight hectares of garden and woodland coming across such a variety of flora and fauna as well as a Gallo-Roman bridge and the little river that feeds the nearby Bélon.

A former mill, this traditional maison sleeps up to 12 guests across its six pretty bedrooms and three bathrooms upstairs. On the ground floor the living and dining room is so spacious and inviting with three sets of French windows overlooking the garden. The wood-beamed kitchen features blue shuttered doors opening out to the garden terrace whilst the games room is a lovely addition to this relaxing and calming home.

Yet despite its vast grounds and rural surroundings, you are within such easy reach of the road leading to a small village and restaurant, only 2.5km away, as well as wonderful Riec-sur-Bélon and Quimperlé. Explore the half-timbered houses and medieval lanes of Quimperlé, 8km by car, visit its indoor market and reserve a table at one of the town’s excellent restaurants. Where the Isole, Ellé and Laïta rivers meet, look out for canoeing and kayaking excursions as well as some superb walking and horse-riding opportunities in the surrounding countryside.

Riec-sur-Bélon is famed for its flat-bed oysters whilst the picturesque town of Pont-Aven has inspired artists for many years. Between the Bélon and L’Aven rivers as far as the Atlantic coast, discover fishing, yet more kayaking and canoeing as well as incredible landscapes for hiking, including the GR34 trail. Near here you will also find the very beautiful Plage de Kerfany, only a 15-minute drive away.

Take time to visit the nearby fishing village of Doëlan and other fantastic beaches popular with paddle-boarders, surfers or diving enthusiasts. Slightly further afield, venture to the standing stones of Carnac and the glorious Quiberon Bay for a brilliant day out, always admiring the diverse landscapes of Brittany before returning to the idyllic surroundings of your charming holiday home.

In the Finistère department of south-western Brittany, a short drive from the historic town of Quimperlé, Maison de la Faune is surrounded by eight hectares of woodland in a stunning and natural setting.

Despite this rural location, local amenities are easily reached – within 200m of Maison de la Faune you will reach the road connecting Riec-sur-Bélon and Quimperlé whilst a small village with a restaurant and tabac is 2.5km away. Supermarkets can be found in both Riec-sur-Bélon as well as in and around Quimperlé, as can a variety of charming restaurants.

On the banks of the Isole and Ellé rivers, Quimperlé (8km) is such a picturesque town with its half-timbered houses, pretty churches and medieval lanes. In the summer the flower-covered bridge, Pont Fleuri, is such a picture-perfect spot whilst food-lovers will appreciate the many excellent restaurants as well as a variety of foodie shops, not forgetting the daily indoor market at Les Halles and the Friday morning outdoor market. Look out for canoeing and kayaking excursions near the town along the Laïta, Isole and Ellé rivers.

Riec-sur-Bélon (5km) is well-known for its flat oysters which you can buy at the twice-weekly market near the tourist office and there’s an oyster festival every July. Continue onwards to Pont-Aven (10km), a gorgeous little town on the Aven estuary which has inspired artists over the years – make sure you visit the impressive Musée des Beaux-Arts. Between the L’Aven and Bélon rivers and beyond, discover idyllic landscapes perfect for walking with the most sensational views as you approach the Atlantic coast – the GR34 hiking route passes through. Also look out for horse-riding, kayaking, canoeing and fishing.

There are some wonderful beaches within a short drive as well - Plage de Kerfany (12km) is very beautiful with a lifeguard in the summer whilst Plage du Kérou (13km) offers paddle-boarding and surfing opportunities, close to Plage de Bellangenet which is popular with families. Doëlan (12km) is a gorgeous little fishing village with some brilliant walks nearby or further afield is Larmor-Plage (33km), a paradise for scuba-diving enthusiasts with many sites around the bay.

There are so many other fantastic days out – visit Carnac (70km) with its ancient standing stones and glorious beach overlooking Quiberon Bay or catch the ferry from Quiberon (75km) to the magnificent island, Belle Île, famed for its summer opera festival.

Brittany is famed chiefly for its beaches, and with so much coastline to explore it’s certainly one of the best reasons to visit the region. But there’s more to Brittany than sun, sea and sand, and while a good chunk of our villas and chateaux in Brittany are found next to the coast the ones further inland are just as tempting. Want to get the inside scoop on Brittany before you book? You’ll find our full Brittany travel guide below, full of tips, inspiration and great things to do.

Brittany is a great region for family holidays and there is so much to do around the Finistère department and beyond.

Look out for canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the L’Aven and Bélon as well as on the three rivers near Quimperlé. Horse-riding is also close by and there are some amazing cycling routes as well as many walks through the stunning landscapes and by the sea.  

Children will love the beaches along the coastline such as family-friendly Plage de Bellangenet, Plage du Kerou with its surfing school and paddle-boarding as well as the long sandy bay of Larmor-Plage, a paradise for keen scuba-divers.

Other summer attractions include Aven Parc with its play areas, nets, ziplines and farm animals, Adrénature Adventure Park with its tree-top adventures (depending on height restrictions), the alpacas and donkeys at Chez Dame Nature animal park and the Parc du Quinquis, home to yet more animals in picturesque surroundings.

  • Beautiful property

    on 10/08/2023

    We took our children and their partners plus the grandchildren( 13 of us in all!!) to this beautiful house and had a wonderful time. The house is spacious and well equipped and the garden is glorious. Our local contact was so helpful and kind.
