There's lush rolling countryside where the stresses of life take a back-seat, picturesque harbours and street-side cafes, wide sandy beaches, historic medieval castles and mighty chateau's, Celtic traditions, standing stones and megaliths at Carnac as well as many festival's and fete's throughout the year.
Food and drink play a major part of French life and Brittany is no different in this respect, plus there are many delicious regional dishes such as buckwheat Crepe's and sweet galette pancakes, Breton cake, cider, and of course a fantastic range of seafood caught locally. Most towns have regular street markets where you can buy straight from the farmer.
Les Vallees Gite is perfectly situated in the centre of Brittany to enjoy the best that Brittany has to offer. We're 2 miles from the nearby town of La Cheze, 8 miles from the market town of Loudeac and 12 miles from Medieval Josselin with the Gothic Chateau towering over the river and Nantes/Brest canal. Only 30-40 minutes drive away are both the North and South Brittany coasts with the bays of St Brieuc and Vannes; whilst just an hour's drive away are great places to visit like the world heritage site of Mont St Michel, the historical ports of St Malo and Dinan, Rennes the capital of Brittany, and Carnac.
