The magnificent Breton farm manoir constructed in 1769, lies in the rural riverside hamlet of Treblavet, together with a mill, Breton Longere and Lock keepers cottage. It was built by the Nedelec family, who still farm the surrounding lands over 200 years later. Less than 10 minutes drive from the busy Breton market town of Baud, and the picturesque riverside villages of St Nicolas de Eaux and St Adrian offering a multitude of restaurants and shops.

The Manoir is situated just outside the village of St. Barthelemy with it’s picturesque square, with Church, local bakery, café and excellent value restaurant as well as a small supermarket. The larger town of Baud 5 minutes drive away has 2 larger supermarkets, shops and a multitude of bars and restaurants. Food lovers will enjoy the wonderful restaurants, local seafood and Breton specialities of galettes and crepes. Taste wine from all over France in the local wine cellars – and stock up for the return to the UK.

The surrounding area has many beautiful places to visit, from the medieval walled towns of Hennebont, Vannes and Josselin, to the ancient port town of Auray – St Goustan. The superb variety of beaches from Quiberon to Carnac and the Gulf of Morbihan, with its hundreds of islands, are all within 30 to 45 minutes. Ferries offer trips to various islands, and around the Gulf. Prehistoric sites are numerous in the area, including the standing stone at Carnac.

Choose to venture away from the poolside, and the local area offers many activities. The river Blavet not 100 meters from the door, is a mecca for salmon fishing, cyclists and walkers wishing to take advantage of the tow paths running from Pontivy in the North, to the sea.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

Why the Owner Chose Saint-Barthélemy, Morbihan, France:
We bought Le Manoir de Treblavet because we fell in love with a beautiful ruined old Manoir. Located at the end of a country road, beside the amazing river Blavet, it had been forgotten. Within a few years it would have been a pile of stones. We felt that we were Le Manoir's last chance of survival. We lovingly restored the house - keen to maintain it's original charm. In 2002 we got married at the house - a fantastic party with 60 guests from the UK, and just as many French friends, that had helped us over the years. We've had many happy family holidays ourselves in the house. Guests often comment about how well it is furnished - with every possible item available. We think this is because we actually live and use the house ourselves - so we know what we need in the house to create a great holiday. It's not just a holiday let for us - it's a home. Le Manoir has a great 'feel' about it - it's a happy house. We like to think it's because the house was desperate to be rescued, and to be rebuilt into somewhere where people could again fill the rooms with chat and laughter................
