Set in 8 acres of secluded parkland amongst woodland and rolling hills, this tranquil oasis with its own fishing lakes has its own special and unique atmosphere - a wonderfully quiet and peaceful place in which to relax and unwind, away from the stresses of modern life.
Carefully renovated to a very high standard, the cottages all have character and charm. Each cottage is extremely comfortable and spacious, and fully equipped with everything you need for a great holiday.
All the cottages are very individual. They each have their own garden and BBQ area, ideal if you are renting one cottage and want your own peace and quiet.
Moulin Le Ponto also has the perfect accommodation for large groups who want to book exclusive use of the whole complex. Enjoy the privacy of your own cottage with your friends or family just next door.
Having exclusive use of the complex is great fun for house parties, family reunions, birthdays or anniversary celebrations, fishing, golf, cycling or walking groups, clubs and associations, etc.
In a private and sheltered part of the grounds, there is a 9.5m x 4.5m heated outdoor swimming pool. The depth is 1.2m overall. The pool is cleaned daily and heated to a comfortable 27 degrees. Open from early June until after September.
Panoramic views of the surrounding rolling countryside and our own lakes.
Around the pool is a large sunbathing deck area (which stays in the sun all day) with plenty of comfortable loungers and parasols. The pool area is fenced and conforms to the new safety regulations, ensuring peace of mind for parents with toddlers.
Elsewhere in the grounds, there are lots of big, open, grassy areas where children can play without disturbing the other guests. Relax in the knowledge that your children are safe, to play freely and unsupervised.
The peaceful atmosphere helps to attract a large number of "visitors" including red squirrels, roe deer, hedgehogs, salamanders,wall voles, stoats, hares, buzzards, owls, kestrels, green and black woodpeckers, nightjars and many other wild birds and the occasional kingfisher.
Moulin Le Ponto lies down a short private drive in quiet and tranquil countryside, amongst green rolling hills and lush wooded valleys.However, the complex is not at all isolated and there is an abundance of picturesque towns and villages close by.
Just a leisurely stroll down the lane is Le Sourn with the local bars and creperie, boulangerie, boucherie, restaurant and store. The crepes are absolutely delicious, and fantastic value for money. People come from miles around to eat at this friendly restaurant.
The nearest town, Pontivy, has a larger choice of shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and banks, and is an easy five minute drive.
Nearly every day of the week you will find a local market where you can sample the best local produce: seafood (especially oysters & shellfish), crepes, cheeses, honey, locally grown fruit & vegetables and wonderful patisserie.
Throughout the year, there are regular antique markets, flea markets and the French equivalent of car boot sales 'Vide Grenier' (attic clearout). These are great places to find some interesting collectables or just something very different and very french.
