Suspendisse sem lorem, ornare non, vestibulum ut, tempor porttitor, est.

Penlan is situated between Loperec and pont de Buis on the side of the Doufiine River Valley. Set 100 metres off a small country lane and overlooking the wooded river valley, the Gites offer a peaceful retreat after a days touring.

The farm consists of a small courtyard of which the Gites are part. Facing out over the countryside they have their own seperate entrance and parking. We have 6 acres of land including some woodland going down to the river and a barn for the chickens and firewood. This is not a commercial farm.

From the front door of the Gites it is an easy walk down through the wood to the river. There are a wide range of wild flowers including bluebells in the spring on the side of the track and by the river itself.

There is a lot of wildlife to observe on the walk if you are patient. Teaming with birdlife we are privileged to see murmurations of starlings in the winter and a wide range of birds throughout the year. One of our guests counted 28 species just sat outside the gites in the evenings.

In the spring and summer the river banks are teaming with damsel flies. If you are lucky you will see one of the otters or more likely one of the resident Coypu. Red Squirrels are present in the woods and in the Autumn will venture up to the farm in search of nuts. Roe deer are usually around as well as foxes and hares . We have had wild boar in the area. Our house has a colony of Pipistral bats which can be seen setting off into the woods at sunset.
