La Metairie Farmhouse Holiday Cottages and Gites is an exclusive adults and couples only holiday retreat in South Brittany, France. Offering a high standard of 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. 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 wildlife, nature lovers, honeymoon couples and birdwatching enthusiasts alike will feel right at home in our gites.
Originally an old cider farm, the three gites / holiday cottages are attached to either side of the main farmhouse overlooking an orchard. Guests are free to use the orchard and gardens for dining or leisure activities, and a barbeque and garden furniture is provided.
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.
The village of Melrand is just two minutes or so by car and has a superb French restaurant 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 and the beautiful village of Saint Barthelemy which has a restaurant noted for its English style fish and chips served on a large slate.
