As a holiday gîte in Brittany, Priory was the original Manor and subsequent presbytery in Saint-Cadou. The Priory is one of our cottages to rent in Brittany and it dates from 1640 and is the oldest dwelling in the hamlet and local area.  The style of the building is typical for the local area and is known as a ‘Maison Anglaise’. You can visit a local museum which will show you just how the Priory would have originally been.

Cottages to rent in Brittany with as much history as the Priory are hard to come by and Brittany family holidays are just wonderful based from this ancient cottage. The building itself is steeped in history and character. Large exposed beams and an enormous and original fireplace give this cottage real charm and our guests have all loved to spend their holidays here.

As a luxury self-catering holiday cottage in Brittany, the Priory has a large fitted kitchen with gas oven and hob.  Amenities include a dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and large fridge freezer.

Priory-gite-13Groups and Large Families

Parties who have hired multiple gîtes have previously used Priory as the main dining and social space.  We can assist with this if required by providing additional dining and seating capacity.

We have often found that grandparents enjoy their own space in the Hayloft or Stable for example and use the larger Priory space for mealtimes etc. 

We can arrange for a cot and highchair upon request at no additional charge.
