Sit back on the terrace, lap up the peace, and savour a glass of Patrick’s walnut wine. Strolling distance from the Chateau de Lannouan, whose farmhouse this once was, all you hear are the birds, and all you see are the trees and the fields.The house is a solid stone longere, separated from the road by a grassy courtyard, with a lawn at the back where children can play, and a much-loved potager. Patrick, ex Parisien chef, creates wonderful dinners held in house-party style. Christine, the talent behind the décor, is also the creator of breakfast’s jams, which include an exotic spiced plum.There are walks in the woods, easy cycling for families, and white sand beaches to head for, on the 42 isles of the Gulf of Morbihan. You’re also close to the hiking route which runs along the Ria d’Etel.
