This pretty manor house is surrounded by a large garden and is located on the outskirts of Lorient. It dates from the eighteenth century, when the town boomed with wealth from the French East India Company. The B&B’s owners also have seafaring links. There are many photos on the walls of them taking part in various ocean sailing races, and the guest bedrooms are named after the yachts they raced on: “Dragon”, “Soling”, “Optimist” and “Requin”. The guest rooms are very spacious and flooded with daylight, and are prettily decorated with armchairs, lamps and sailcloth waste-paper baskets. The ground floor rooms have access to a small terrace leading directly to the garden, and some of the rooms have fireplaces. One of the ground rooms is accessible by reduced-mobility guests. The suites upstairs are more spacious and each has a lounge with a double sofa bed. There is also a beautiful guests’ dining room, which is linked to the kitchen where Véronique prepares breakfast, which includes pancakes, rice pudding, panacotta, home-made yogurt, fruit salad, ham and cheese… you certainly won’t leave with an empty stomach! The lounge overlooks the superb swimming pool, next to the Turkish bath and the jacuzzi. A top-quality address, located a stone’s throw from the sea.
