The Cottage and Longere at Le Clézio in Brittany

In the heart of the beautiful Breton countryside, Le Clézio is in a beautiful location, perfect for relaxing holidays where you can enjoy the delights of rural Brittany and the very welcoming local people. A hamlet has existed here at least since the 14th Century, and for some time Le Clézio was in the domaine of the Duc de Rohan. The present “petit manoir” was built in 1781, whilst the Longere and Cottage are thought to date from around the 16th century. Each property has been recently renovated to provide accommodation of exceptional space and comfort. There is a heated swimming pool and terraced area, and each property also has its own terraces and BBQ area. If you long for a luxurious holiday in France, look no further.

Le Clézio is set in over three acres of gardens and woodland, and borders the River Blavet, which forms part of the Nantes–Brest canal system.  The gardens offer direct (and unfenced) access to the river and tow path, so you can borrow our bicycles, take a picnic basket and disappear off for the day, to explore at your leisure. A walk or cycle ride along the tow path is a scenic and peaceful experience, no crowds, no rush. Summertime is great for seeing wildlife too, there are at least two otter holts along this stretch of the Blavet at the moment, and you can also spot red kite, herons, kingfishers and woodpeckers amongst the very varied bird popluation.

Neulliac village is just a mile away and offers a range of facilities, a bar and boulangerie, creperie, pharmacy, hairdresser, and an English speaking doctor, should the need arise. There are several restaurants close at hand, at St Aignan and Mur de Bretagne, just 5 kms away. Several offer great value 3 course lunch menus for around 12 euros a head, with wine included. The food is excellent and amazing value. Pontivy is approximately 5 miles away, (10 minutes drive) and offers a wide range of restaurants, shops and bars. Market day in Pontivy is Monday.
