Description from owner


Les Gites de La Touche are located in the French town of Pleudihen-sur-Rance, perfectly positioned between the centre of town and the picturesque hamlet of Mordreuc on the banks of La Rance.

3 self-contained and newly renovated cottages – La Souillarde sleeps 2-4, Le Chanvril sleeps 4 and Le Bois sleeps 4-6. Le Bois - Catering for 4-6 people - **PLEASE NOTE - This is the booking page for Le Bois gîte only**

The gîtes are available on a weekly basis or minimum 3 nights depending on the time of year.

For groups – family and friends, who would like to holiday together or gather for a special occasion, there is the possibility of booking all 3 gîtes, catering for 14 people in total.

Newly renovated in a 300 year old barn the gites are stylish and modern but retain features of their former life. The living area is open plan, light and welcoming.

The gîtes are set in the coutryside within walking distance of the village centre, Mordreuc and coastal paths. Mordreuc has a beach and little port as well as a local seal who can be found sunbathing on the beach or jetty most days.

The gites are set in large grounds and the surroundings are tranquil and peaceful.

Le Bois gîte consists of;- Well equipped kitchen featuring electric cooker, oven, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, coffee machine, microwave and toaster.- Large dining table- Spacious living area with french doors opening onto a paved courtyard- LCD TV and DVD player, stereo system- Wi-fi (included)- Off-street parking. There are 2 spacious bedrooms on the first floor in Le Bois - one with 160cm double bed, the other with 2 single beds which can be joined to make a 160cm double if required. Like many old Breton houses, the stairs are quite steep. There is also a high quality sofa bed in the living room which can increase the capacity of the gîte to sleep 6 people in comfort.

Le Bois has one bathroom with a large open shower. There is also an additional separate toilet to provide ample flexibility. Le Bois also includes laundry facilities with an all in one washing machine and dryer. Heating is provided by an ecological wood burner using compressed wood pellets and a heat exchange extractor system which captures and reuses heat that is jettisoned by standard bathroom and kitchen extractor systems.

Le Bois is accessible to those in wheelchairs as it was renovated to current French standards for disabled access. The wet room with a large open shower is on the ground floor and the living room contains a new and extremely comfortable sofa bed which converts easily and quickly into a bed for those who can't manage the stairs. Pure cotton linen and towels are provided.

The Local Area: Pleudihen-sur-Rance is a picturesque location on the banks of a river - La Rance. There are pretty coastal tracks meandering through the fields and along the tidal river Rance. The surrounding area has a long history and there are many sites not far away making Pleudihen-sur-Rance the perfect base to explore Brittany. Other nearby sites of interest include Mont St Michel, Fort La Latte, Dinard, Cancale and Fougeres.

“Great location, beautifully fitted out and the downstairs wet room made it ideal for anyone with mobility issues.”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2015

Very easy to book the gite, all the directions and instructions were spot on with a lovely friendly welcome from the owners. The gite is well equipped with light and airy decoration plus a sunny spot to sit outside with coffee or a glass of wine. Anyone with mobility issues would welcome the downstairs bathroom with its excellent wetroom and the unusually comfortable sofabed. This plus gorgeous sheets and towels makes for a great sleep. The location is really well suited to exploring the north Brittany coast as well as inland to Dinan and Rennes. We love food and wine and so for us it was ideal - the middle of the cider growing region of the Rance valley and an amazing range of restaurants with fantastic seafood within easy reach. In the village itself is an extraordinarily brilliant bakery and patisserie with everything baked on the premises by real artisanal experts. Definitely going back to stay again next year.
