The
Experience

The building juts forth like the prow of a cruise liner – lots of glass, lots of light. The sea glitters on three sides, the only sounds are the birds and the gentle whisper of boats sliding past. The house and garden are carved in two – space for you, space for your hosts. Four of the five bedrooms have sea views, all a private terrace, big sliding doors. Outside there’s a plush lawn and heated pool.

When the mist descends, sit in the library with a book or play piano, descend to the little spa for a sauna or massage, take a gastronomic tour of the oyster shacks and Michelin-starred restaurants (five within 19 miles) for net-fresh seafood.

Borrow bikes and kayaks, ask for a picnic and head off on island adventures. Play golf at Baden, watch colourful boats from your window with binoculars, hop aboard the Navette des Îsles or take a daytrip to medieval Vannes. Breakfast is fresh, local, served in the dining room or on your terrace. You can stay in for delicious dinners from Thursday to Sunday.

Location

The neighbourhood

The Gulf of Morbihan’s pure waters gleam with a mirror-like shine, punctuated at low tide by oyster beds. It’s the last stop on the wild, Celtic side of Brittany: megaliths rise mysteriously from the sea mists like shards of flint. The villa is set at the end of the Pointe du Guern, in a 7000 square-metre park overlooking the bay with direct access to the beach and coastal trail below the house. There are houses either side, but there are sea vistas anywhere you look. The village of Baden is about 3km away, with three restaurants, two good creperies, a little Friday night market. There’s a train station 20km away in Vannes – your hosts can collect you.

Local points of interest from Arnaud & Martine Genis

  • The view from our property is spectacular : 250 degrees view since we seat on a tip overlooking the Gulf of Morbihan. The coolest place is the pool that hangs over the Gulf and gives the impression to swim in the Gulf.
  • We have lived and travelled in many countries. We love spoiling our guests and sharing our passion for this beautiful region. We can help you plan your activities : restaurants, hikes, cultural visits, shopping, …. There is a lot to do around our place.
  • Megaliths, Michelin starred restaurants, cruises to the 30+ Islands of the Gulf of Morbihan, middle age cities and castles, local markets, music festivals, sailing, hiking along the coast,… are some of the attractions of our region.

Introducing

Arnaud & Martine Genis

The Genis’ spent 20 years living in Japan, USA, Spain, Italy and Belgium before returning to their beloved Brittany to settle in Baden. A passion for hosting friends, architecture and décor led them to open Villa du Guern – the result of a four-year project, they took all the best bits of their homes over the years and built their dream house. Service is of the don’t-lift-a-finger variety.
