Our House

Our house is quietly located on the Peninsula of Rhuys in the Gulf of Morbihan in South Brittany, next to Sarzeau and Vannes.

If you wish to get acquainted with our peninsula, we suggest this magnificent video filmed from a drone: 

You will find Les Roseaux de Pencadénic along the stretching of Penerf, with its natural park bathed by the sea.

Nearby…

The large terrace and its garden offer direct access to the GR34.

You can have a coffee there. You can also enjoy the common room where breakfasts are served. This room will also display its view at the sea, view that varies along with the tides.

At Les Roseaux, you will be a few steps from the first beaches of the Rhuys Peninsula. If you wish, we can guide you in the choice of your activities and outings, and even reveal our secret access to the best corners of beaches.

But we’ll count on you not to blow a word.

Shhh…

Why build a wooden house?

We planned and built our house in order to live in it, and also to welcome our guests, all the while making a committment to sustainable development.

This sensitivity to ecology has guided our choices from the outset, at the time of building:

  • The frame and the construction are wooden.
  • The natural insulation is wood fiber.
  • The main heating is done at the wood stove.

In short, a lot of wood was and is still used 😀

Our values

We are very attentive to safeguarding a healthy environment from all points of view.

We have also obtained the label “Values Regional Natural park of the Gulf of Morbihan”, in recognition of our commitment:

  • To the preservation of the environment,
  • To the well-being of human beings,
  • To the support of local economy.

The protection of nature on a daily basis

But our commitment is not limited to wishful thinking, since it is reflected daily in our consumption choices:

Our daily Ecogestures

  • The linen (sheets) meets the ISO 14000 (environmental) standard.
  • We prefer short food supply chains for the making of breakfasts and meals. Our food supply chain can sometimes be extremely short, since some of the vegetables we cook come out directly from our kitchen garden 😉
  • We sort our waste and engage in composting.
  • We manage our water and electricity consumption.
  • We collect rainwater for the toilet and the garden.
  • We do the cleaning and maintenance with ecological products (vinegar, white stone…), both for the house and for the garden.
We have obtained the Ecogestures label from Gîtes de France

Our commitment with the Bird Protection League

We also chose to commit with the Bird Protection League by becoming:

Bird Protection League Refuges Logo
Les Roseaux de Pencadénic are a Bird Protection League Refuge

Specifically, this means that:

  1. We provide shelter and food to breeding birds,
  2. We inform you about the birds in the vicinity and about the best practices to preserve their natural habitat.

Our garden and its view of the sea

Our garden is both an ornamental garden and a kitchen garden.

You can access it directly from the terrace, which is common to all the rooms. You can relax in the calm in the deckchairs at your disposal, while enjoying the view of the sea, which varies according to the tides.

If you want to go for a walk or to bike, you will have no more than two steps to make and you will be on track on the GR34 hiking trail (the “coastal path “), which runs along the stretching, the seaside and the beaches
