New cottage and a kitchen, living room, tv, internet. There is a bedroom with a 160x200 bed for two people, but also a sofa bed for 2 extra beds. A bathroom with a washing machine and toilet. The cottage is situated in a quiet location, facing south in a green resort city at the crossroads of Britain. You between sea and land in the countryside. Nearby there is Saint Malo (1h), La Baule and the famous golf of Morbihan. Confort.
I am a farmer or a farm I raise chickens outdoors and if you wish to visit the farm, it is with pleasure that I will visit.
Pleasure to welcome you in a green and quiet environment near a forest and a castle, in a hilly and beautiful countryside where there are many beautiful things to discover, like rock fairies, forest brocéliande with these legends, etc.
A very soon.
Roger and I had the most incredible week with Marie-Paule and her son Guillaume on their chicken farm. We went on a tour of the chickens, helped collect eggs, rode on the tractor, were given a tour of the war museum and able to eat lots and lots of delicious fruit from the orchard. Guillaume took us out several times on the bicycles touring the local area, which was spectacular. We were also welcomed into their home to eat, drink and learn more about Bretagne life. They don't speak much English however we were still able to communicate successfully and have become friends for life. My car broke down and Marie-Paule went out of her way to help source a garage for an excellent price as well as lending us her farm car! They could not have been more helpful. This week has been exceptional and one that Roger and I will not forget. I can't implore you enough to go and stay here, you won't regret it!! Stunning location, fabulous accommodation and the most delightful people you will ever meet. Thank you Marie-Paule and Guillmaume (and Lily the dog and Tous Tous the cat) we miss you all so much.
Right from the start we were made to feel very welcome. Marie-Paule and her son helped us make our holiday interesting, fun and warm without being intrusive at all. We were invited into their family home, given tips on what to visit and where, taken by Guillaume on the mountain bikes to visit local features. We just loved Guillaume's collections of historic bric-a-brac and could have spent many hours fossicking around the old buildings. We were given the grand tour of the chickens and also watched the harvester in action (while trying to describe harvesting in country Australia) Communication was difficult but with the help of modern technology (itranslate) and mime was not impossible and fun. The accommodation is lovely and roomy with almost everything you could require. Would definitely recommend people stay if they are after a quiet, country experience. Just watch out for fast trucks on a very narrow country road!
Marie-Paule et son fils Guillaume ont été pour nous des hôtes plein d'attention, de générosité et d'humour. Ils nous ont fait découvrir la campagne environnante en vtt et nous ont donnés de bons conseils sur cette magnifique région.
We stayed for 6 nights chez Marie-Paul Jacob and her son in Bretagne at her big chicken farm. It was a very nice experience. Marie-Paul and son gave us a very warm welcoming with a lot of information about places to visit. We got a grand tour of the farm - it was great with the chickens and the fruityard. She showed us how to make galettes and other specialities of Bretagne. We loved it :).
The accomodation was perfect with all the utilities you need for cooking - washing - ...
If you are looking for a nice stay in a typical farm (4th generation) in Bretagne, this is the place to be!
Un endroit à l'image des ses hôtes: qui gagne à être connu ! Un coin de Bretagne tranquille, mais plein de beaux chemins, de fermes, d'étangs et de bois a visiter. Marie-Paule et son fils sont des hôtes très sympathiques, prêts à vous faire partager leur expérience de la ferme et des environs, qu'ils connaissent parfaitement. Les ballades à vélo avec le jeune Guillaume et son chien sont inoubliables.
Le logement est rénové et propre, bien équipé. Un équilibre parfait entre calme et vie de la ferme, au coeur d'une Bretagne qui a gardé son identité, tout en maitrisant les dernières technologies. Un belle semaine de détente !
I had an amazing time at La Massarie, Marie-Paule's place just outside the town of Bain de Bretagne. Not only is the countryside full of picturesque Breton farms, the hosts are very friendly, helpful and attentive. I was looking for a farm experience and I got to see things like a restored windmill, milk and cheese production, different types of agriculture, a chateau. The apartment is newly remodeled and very well furnished. It was a peaceful and relaxing visit, just what I was looking for. Oh and I really got to practice my French which I loved.
We had a wonderful time staying with Marie-Paule. The apartment is brand new and beautiful. Marie-Paule and her son are very exuberant and helpful hosts. There are a couple of things to be aware of, though. The farm is about 7 km from Bain-de-Bretagne so having a car would be very helpful. Also, Marie-Paule is 100% francophone, so you need to know some French. Thanks for a great stay!
Les Jakob sont tres gentils, l'apart est propre et tout neuf. Les alentours sont tranquils. verts et la village est charmante. Il y a des velos disponibles, et plusiers points d'interet rustiques y sont. Merci!
