Lenvos nestles amid 15 acres of private grounds in the Blavet Valley of the Morbihan region of Brittany just 5 minutes from the chateau town of Pontivy. The 15th century hamlet has been restored to provide five delightful holiday cottages surrounding a central courtyard.
The cottages have traditional slate roofs, thick stone walls, beamed ceilings and still retains their ancient character. Despite this they offer all the benefits of 21st century fully equipped living.
With two lakes, river frontage, woods and meadows, the grounds are a haven for a wide variety of native flora wildlife. Visitors can while the day away in the peaceful company of kingfishers, red squirrels and dragonflies. The lakes provide excellent wild fishing, ideal for beginners and experts alike.
The surrounding area offers the chance to get fully immersed in the gentle ways of French rural life. It is a remarkable oasis of peace and tranquility and yet just a short drive to shops, restaurants and numerous unspoilt villages. If you want to leave the car at home,the heated swimming pool, landscaped sun terraces, and children’s play area make Lenvos an ideal location for a memorable holiday for all ages.
Lenvos is managed in a sustainable way. Woodland used for fuel is coppiced or replanted with native species. New gardens have been made and contain a wide variety of plants and trees which enjoy the mild climate and moist soils of the river valley. In recognition of this, Lenvos has been awarded 1st Prize by South Brittany’s Tourist Office in both 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2014 and in 2017 a special award for Remarkable Gardens and Grounds .
Visitors are encouraged to explore and discover this unspoilt area and the owners are keen to reduce the carbon footprint and allow nature to thrive in equilibrium with the needs of modern life.
Originally from the UK, the owners, Phil & Fiona Sutherland, moved to Lenvos with their three daughters in 2003. They are on hand to help make your holiday trouble free and take great delight in sharing their little corner of paradise.
