Full description:

Situated in the heart of Blavet Valley, Morbihan, southern Brittany, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, woodland and country meadows, the hamlet of thatched cottages is located conveniently near to the thriving market town of Baud, 30 minutes from the nearest sandy beaches and within 2 hours drive of the ferry ports (St. Malo & Roscoff) and of all major airports in Brittany.

All 3 thatched cottages have been renovated to a very high standard and to the same style, by professional artisans between 1998 and 2007. One cottage has been used by the owners with the remaining 2 run very successfully as luxury holiday cottages since 2005, each with 4-key and 4-star ratings.

We are listed in the "Top 400 Gites" and are invariably voted in the top 10.

Bookings are consistently 45-55 weeks per year or more, between the two holiday cottages.

In addition each of the three cottages has its own private patio area.


House :
45 m2 (ground floor)
  • partially renovated
  • currently fitted out as a laundry room and workshop
  • full size attic store-room upstairs
  • good potential to convert to a 2-3 bed house.

Garage: 45 m2

'Cave': 32 m2 (originally cider and food store)

The 12.2m x 6.1m swimming pool with additional 1.5m roman steps has a large terraced area surrounding it for sunbeds and umbrellas. The pool area is in the sun all year round. The telescopic cover and heater enable the pool to be opened (to guests) from the beginning of April through to the beginning of November which is a great bonus out of the traditional peak season. Similarly, in inclement weather, you can comfortably swim under the cover, which has ample space for table and chairs or sunbeds under cover as well.

The telescopic pool cover and the additional fencing all comply with the latest pool security regulations and in addition to the security aspects, were chosen to maximise the aesthetics and enjoyment of use of the pool.


The main house has its own garden area to the front and back (the front garden being large and secluded from the two holiday cottages). A separate secure Pond Garden with 'stream' and mature flower beds, surrounded by trees, offers a tranquil get-away area for guests and owners alike. A larger garden surrounds the swimming pool which is set in an old orchard still providing (cider) apples, plums, cherries and peaches. This garden has a large playing area for the children as well as swings and a climbing tower etc. A further smaller enclosed lawned garden directly services the two holiday cottages, accessible from each of the cottage patio areas.


For full views of the holiday cottages and grounds, please follow the links to the 360˚ Virtual Tours.


Although in a tranquil rural setting, Le Helleguy is only 3km from the nearest village bakery & pharmacy, 6km from the nearest superstore and 12km from Baud, the nearest town with several superstores, smaller shops and restaurants. The large towns of Lorient and Pontivy are easily accessible (30 mins drive) as are the picturesque and historic towns of Vannes and Josselin (30 & 45 mins drive respectively).


We currently live in the main house and offer the other two thatched cottages on a weekly rental basis throughout the whole year.

Consistently awarded a '4 star' rating by the local tourist board (Lorient) and '4 keys' (clés) rating by the national holiday company Clévacances over the last 5 years, the cottages (which are built to a very high standard) are continually upgraded to maintain their high standard of presentation.

We have a high return rate of guests each year, some returning as many as 5 times or more. We attract a wide international clientele including the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Russia, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Ireland, Netherlands, France etc.
