The
Experience

On the site of a 14th-century hamlet, this handsome Breton property has two very well-renovated houses to let. They work well together for a group and share three acres of garden and woodland on the Nantes-Brest canal. Head off on the bikes for a peaceful pedal along the towpath (spot an otter!) – to lunch, perhaps Michelin-starred, in Mur-de-Bretagne (5km). You’ll get a friendly welcome from Kevin and Louise, who have set out to preserve original features (arched stone fireplaces, ceiling beams) while adding practical and well-equipped kitchens, efficient wood-burners and shower rooms. Go for a dip in the new heated pool. The style is unpretentious, the comfortable furniture is mostly modern. The grandest room – the master bedroom in ‘Longère’ – has a lovely big south-facing window, a huge oak bed, a big en suite shower. The bedrooms in ‘Cottage’ are spacious, cosy and carpeted. It’s great to have a separate laundry room, a choice of bedding and a generous arrival hamper. You’re an hour from the Gulf of Morbihan for sailing and stunning coastlines.

Reviews

We were delighted to find this fabulous location for our summer break. Being located in central Brittany, Le Clezio serves as a perfect base for exploring the region. We particularly enjoyed seafood lunches in Vannes and Auray. The accommodation is luxurious at the same time as being incredibly dog-friendly! The extensive grounds are well-maintained and create an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. We are very grateful to Louise and Kevin who are dedicated to making sure that everyone ( including canine companions) has a wonderful holiday.

Second time back and still just as beautiful! Gorgeous weather, lazy days at the lake paddle bording and best pizza picnic! Walks and bike rides along the canal, star gazing on the lawn at night and after a lovely day what better than to drop into the most luxurious and comfortable beds. The warmest welcome awaits you at Le Clezio..... if you want peacefulness, warm sunny days, a refreshing swim in the pool, good food, tasty wine (and cheap), quaint French markets, luxurious furnishings and attentive hosts then this is the place for you! Back again next year!

Spent a wonderful week staying at Le Clezio with our two children (6 & 3 yrs) Stayed at Le Longere which was lovely and beautifully furnished. The comfy super king master bed is divine! Kevin & Louise are such welcoming hosts and nothing is too much trouble! They kindly provide bikes which you can use along the scenic canal path at the bottom of their garden. House is perfectly located to Le Lac Guerdelain (10 mins drive) which has sandy beaches & pedaloes for hire which our children loved. Enjoyed day trips to Carnac, Auray and Vannes too. Highly recommend and hope to return again soon!

Spent two wonderful weeks in the cottage with our old dog, who, like us, loved the very large & amazing garden & the nearby canal towpath for walks. We relaxed on the lovely patio (great garden furniture and parasols), swam in the pool and enjoyed the great BBQ. Le Clezio is a great location to explore Brittany as it's situated more or less in the centre and so both north and south coasts are pretty easily reached. Louise and Kevin were very attentive and made sure that everything was tip top for our stay! We'd love to visit again!

Colm, Dublin

We had an absolutely fabulous week with you this month, aided in no small part by the glorious weather. Your property is absolutely stunning and a perfect setting for a relaxing family week holiday. The property had everything that we needed, including the egg cups (!) and was like home from home. It was wonderful not to come back with a car full of dirty laundry too, thanks for the use of the machines. Oliver is still talking about the pool, the water pistols, and of course the bikes. We all enjoyed pottering along the river on the bikes with the boys on the back, a great touch.

Louise, Devon

We spent two wonderful weeks at Le Clezio with our two girls (2 and 5 yrs). The location and facilities are perfect for children with access to a lake with a sandy beach, watersports and restaurants only 10 minutes away and a canal towpath at the bottom of the garden (we recommend bringing bicycles), not to mention the heated swimming pool. The Longere was very comfortable and characterful - we wish we could have taken the bed home. Kevin and Louise are warm and friendly hosts. We booked to return in 2017 within a week!

Tamsin, London

Two weeks at Le Clezio.... Not long enough! From the minute we arrived we were made so welcome by Kevin, Louise and beautiful Brie. We stayed in the cottage which has everything you need... The most comfortable furnishings and luxurious bedding along with the peaceful surroundings. We loved taking the bikes straight onto the cycle path next to the canal then popping back for a refreshing swim in the beautiful pool. Sunny days at the lake with a picnic and water sports for all ages. A perfect holiday with perfect hosts! We were so well looked after, can't wait to go back!

Jennifer, Preston

This is a fantastic place for a relaxing holiday. We stayed at the Longere and couldn't have been more comfortable. The standard of the accommodation is excellent, three rooms, all in effect with en-suite bathrooms (very useful when you have daughters who take ages to get ready every day). The pool was a welcome retreat in the hotter afternoons and there are plenty of bike to borrow to cycle on the canal tow path or quiet roads. The owners are on site, always happy to help but never being obtrusive. A great location.

David, Welwyn

We all had a lovely week at Le Clezio. Louise and Kevin couldn't have made us feel more welcome and the cottage was immaculate. Our boys had an absolute ball in the pool and loved running around the enormous garden. An idyllic location and a great base to explore Brittany.

Jane, Cambridge

Wondeful place to stay,the cottage is fantastic and the gardens and pool just make it a great place too stay.Louise and Kevin are great hosts,very enjoyable holiday !!!!

Jonathan, Congleton

We had a wonderful week at le clezio, Louise and Kevin looked after us very well and had thought of everything that we might need. We had our baby with us and they supplied a cot, a baby bath and even turned up the temperature on the pool to make his first swim as relaxed as possible. It is a charming place and beautifully maintained, we would love to return.

Clare, Cambridge

Our third year at Le Clezio and it was still as beautiful as ever. We cycled along the canal to Pontivy Monday market and had nice lunches at Mur de Bretagne and Caurel. We were also privileged to be there when the Lac de Guerledan had been drained so we're able to walk along the bottom of the (dry) lake. The cottage was once again very comfortable and extremely well eqipped, everything you could possibly need was there. Kevin and Louise couldn't be nicer. We love Le Clezio and despite the fact that we have been there so often there are still places we want to go to.

Sue, Cirencester

A real get away from it all. House wonderfully equipped - nicely furnished, soft fluffy towels and the most comfortable beds. Lovely pool, super clean, and large, private garden. Smart outdoor furniture with big, fat cushions dotted throughout. Bikes of all sizes provided and you can cycle from the back garden for miles along the canal. Louise and Kevin could not be nicer, more welcoming or accommodating. Lovely holiday, thank you.

Sophie

Just back from a week at Le Clezio with the most welcoming and friendly owners you could ask for. The Cottage was a lovely place to stay, the grounds are wonderful, the pool lovely and very warm - especially good news for our little baby! We had the most relaxing time and feel very rested. I would recommend it as a special place to stay - does exactly what it says on the tin!

Geoff

We have just returned from what I can only describe as a "Truly memorable and great holiday at Le Clezio". As a family we enjoyed the garden so very much, morning strolls in Wellies and Shorts, to Relay races with Brie (the dog) and the children! Not to mention playing tag, the Paddling Pool, Hose Play, wow that water from the source was ccccold! We did enjoy wildlife walks by the canal, playing pooh sticks and riding ALL the bikes! A Special Thanks to Louise and Kevin for welcoming us with open arms, croissants and a cold drink when we were exhausted!! See you again in 2015 - "A bientot!" xxx

Alistair

Totally agree with all the other reviews. Cottage beautifully renovated and furnished and comprehensively equipped; Kevin and Louise extremely helpful; location tranquil and perfect for day trips to many locations including north and south Brittany coasts. We'll be back!

Mike

Lovely hosts, nothing too much trouble. Comfortable cottage, well furnished and equipped. Peaceful location. Perfect!

Sue

We loved Le Clezio, the Cottage was perfect as were our hosts, Kevin & Louise, the canal cycle paths at the bottom of the garden, Pontivy Monday market, Lac de Guerledan, the beds, the Gazebo, the weather, the plums and apples from the orchard and Brie the dog (and I don't like dogs normally) We will be back!

Susan

All our expectations were met when we arrived. Great hosts, immaculate property, excellent cycling on the doorstep. The property is close to the Lac de Guerledan which is a beautiful place with miles of walks and cycle trails. We will definitely be returning.

Colin

We were looking for somewhere relaxing and tranquil and that's exactly what we got. Right from the outset we were impressed with the communication from the owners. We received a very warm welcome and guided tour of the cottage. Kevin and Louise have put a great deal of thought into Le Clezio. The interior of the cottage is immaculate and very well equipped. The owners are delightful and very knowledgeable about the local area. They are extremely accommodating without being intrusive. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful garden and freedom to cycle. The peace is addictive at Le Clezio
