There are 2 self catering holiday cottages plus bed and breakfast accommodation in a 16th century Breton farmhouse courtyard setting surrounded by large gardens with a heated swimming pool near Lake Guerledan in Brittany. It’s the perfect location for a family holiday to relax and explore this beautiful and unspoilt corner of France. At Les Hirondelles we offer you rural Brittany at its most enchanting: an idyllic retreat from the hurly burly of modern life where deer and wild boar roam the forests and fields and all sorts of birds nest in our garden including the swallows which give Les Hirondelles its name, barn owls (Les Chouettes) and nightingales (Les Rossignols). We love it here in our rural idyll: the skies are clearer and bluer – there’s no pollution; the grass and trees really are greener; and because there’s no light pollution the night sky is very dark and you’ll see so many stars that you’ll think you could just reach up and pluck one to keep! Your holiday is important to you, and it’s important to us to make sure you have a great time. After all, we’d like to see you again some time! We believe that happy children make happy parents so we aim to be family friendly and have a range of baby equipment available at no extra cost, and also play equipment and toys for all ages!
Our beautifully restored 16th century Breton Farmhouse complex is in a courtyard setting surrounded by lovely gardens including our large heated pool and children’s play area. We are situated in the rural heart of Brittany in the historic hamlet of Rosquelfen very close to the wonderful Lac De Guerledan in one of the prettiest parts of Brittany, and easy driving distance from the beautiful Pink Granite Coast to the north, and the Gulf of Morbihan to the south. But it’s just a 3 minute drive to collect those French breakfast essentials: freshly baked baguettes and croissants, or for the more energetic just a 15 minute walk to Gouarec!
You can stay in luxurious en suite bed and breakfast accommodation (Chambres D’hotes) in our farmhouse or be self-catering in one of our cottages. Whichever you choose you can be sure that we will do our best to make your holiday as enjoyable as we can as we are on hand to help with any enquiries. Our cottages are very well equipped and our heated swimming pool is thoughtfully situated to be easily accessible but it is fenced and gated for your children’s safety. For those who want a complete rest from cooking, we also offer packed lunches and evening meals (including barbecues!) by arrangement for our guests. Vegetarians and other diets can also be catered for on request. Here at Les Hirondelles, you really are spoilt for choice!
Our pool is about 36 feet by 15 feet by 4 feet deep. It has wide shallow Roman steps leading down into the main swimming area. These steps are ideal for toddlers and small children to paddle and play in the warm water. It is surrounded by a paved area which is itself surrounded by lawns screened by shrubs and trees for your privacy. There are plenty of sun loungers, chairs, tables and parasols set around the pool. There are also lots of inflatables to play with in the pool as well as a separate small inflatable paddling pool for babies. The pool will be open from 23 May to 5 September 2009.
