The picturesque hamlet of Le Helleguy can be found in the department of Morbihan, Southern Brittany, close to the River Blavet. Situated in a stunningly beautiful rural location, in the heart of the Blavet Valley, the hamlet is surrounded by 3 acres of landscaped gardens and lawned play areas, rolling countryside, fields and woodland.

The hamlet consists of 3 beautiful detached Breton thatched cottages. The owners who live on-site (and are available to assist guests during their stay and offer Complimentary Therapies and Beauty Treatments) occupy one of the cottages, with the 2 remaining, LA CHAUMIERE and LA GRANGE, offered as luxury, self-catering rental accommodation.

The cottages can be rented individually or together, the latter being ideal for family and friend group gatherings.

Open all year, Le Helleguy is a super retreat for relaxing summer holidays, Christmas family gatherings and out of season spring / autumn breaks.
