La Fontaine Rouillee Gîtes

Looking for a character holiday cottage to rent in the real Brittany?

2 bedroom holiday cottage to rent in Brittany
3 bedroom gite to rent in Brittany
La Fontaine Rouillee really is a chill-out zone; our gîtes are ideal places for a barbecue; somewhere to slow down and admire the sunset over the forest then star gaze at clear skies.  

Relax with a book and a drink - try the local cider; watch the bird life (including green and spotted woodpeckers, common and honey buzzards, kestrels, wood pigeons), or sketch the scenery.
  
When you feel re-energised, take a walk or cycle around country lanes spotting Plessala’s stone crosses, follow the marked forest trails and look out for deer or search for mushrooms.  In the valley stroll beside the River Lié cross the ancient stepping stones at la Roche aux Cerf and admire the restoration of the original water mill; then dangle a rod in and catch a trout.

Enjoy having time to appreciate nature in these delightful surroundings.  Butterflies and wild flowers are everywhere; hare, deer, even wild boar have been seen.

If you go down river just a few kilometres, you can hire kayaks and cycles at the nearby sports base; or on other side of the forest there is a riding stable which organises pony treks.

Cross the weir at the bottom of the hill and visit the old bakery; it has recently been revitalised, you can now enjoy wonderful stone ground bread and brioche, from traditional wood ovens.
Sample traditional Breton fare; here the world stops for 2 hours at lunch time, finding somewhere to savour good food helps make each day of your holiday memorable
