The location of this Brittany cottage makes it the perfect holiday spot for those wanting both the idyllic tranquility of rural Brittany together with the option of getting out and about to visit the nearby towns, restaurants and sandy beaches. The nearest large town is medieval Malestroit, about ten minutes away. Here you'll find banks, supermarkets and restaurants. For more information see the Local Towns link on the Things to Do page which will tell you all about the best nearby Brittany towns to visit
 
In Reminiac itself the restaurant, bar and depot de pain 'The Old Ivy' is perfectly located just two minutes walk from La Maison des Hirondelles (previously named La Maison Violet). The Ivy is a traditional Breton restaurant and a great place to sample the local produce. The menu changes all the time and the three course lunch is about 14 Euros including wine. On friday night there's often a seafood special plus there's always steak and burgers etc available. Everything is perfectly prepared and served in a fantastic friendly atmosphere. Additionally, a kilometre further down the road is the village of Monteneuf which boasts a lovely bakers, general store and yet another great auberge
 
Hirondelle was recently completely renovated and everything in it is new from the tile floors right up to the ceilings. It has been newly wired/ plumbed, and furnished with new leather settees, superking bed, dishwasher etc Free Wi-Fi is available in the house so you can surf the net at your leisure - just bring a tablet, laptop or smartphone

The Ground Floor

We have only renovated the ground floor of this house as it is so large. The top floor will remain empty forever and there is no access to it at all as there is no stairwell so the first floor is completely closed off

There are four very spacious rooms. The floors -which are tiled throughout- are completely flat except for one step into the lounge making it the ideal property for you if you don't like stairs or too much climbing !

The cottage is modern, light and airy and benefits from specially commissioned art by a well known artist giving the house its own uniqueness and quality

The gite rear garden is accessed from the lounge via a patio door and has table, chairs, loungers, BBQ, and a large lawn.
