Close to beautiful, medieval Vannes, Jantine and Jacques’ house lies in undulating country where horses graze and clematis clambers. Light-filled bedrooms, the most luxurious on the first floor, are crisp and comfy with pukka linen and top-class showers. Feast on crêpes before setting off for walks and climbs and, from the top of wooded summits, views over the Morbihan Gulf. Then a nap in the enclosed garden or an espresso in the tiny salon. If you’re enjoying the indoor pool too much to be tempted by a local Michelin-starred restaurant (there are two), Jantine will make you a tasty platter.
