Welcome to Hirondelle Farm, the ultimate in French Holiday Homes, open all year, including Christmas and New Year!
If you are looking for a really clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped French Holiday Homes you have found it!
Set in the beautiful Western Loire only 6Km from the walled historic town of Chateaubriant, Hirondelle Farm nestles in the hamlet of Le Perray surrounded by peaceful fields of corn-on-the-cob and sunflowers. Hirondelle Farm is owned by Dave and Doreen Joyner, formerly of Bournemouth, UK.
The village of Saint Aubin des Chateaux, with its picturesque riverside picnic area, is less than a kilometer from the farm. The market town of Chateaubriant is a scenic bicycle ride of about 6 kilometers. The ferry port of Saint Malo is less than a two hour drive through some of the most beautiful parts of Brittany en route to the Western Loire.
The area is famous for the fishing available in local lakes, rivers and canals. Carp, Roach, Pike and Mullet are the most popular catches.
The lovely towns of Rennes, Angers, Laval, Nantes and St Nazaire are within an hour's drive from the Farm. As are the beaches at La Baule and St Brevin.
The Stable has been tastefully renovated and offer very comfortable accommodation. Retaining all the original French character with exposed beams and woodburning stoves. It has a private garden, including patio and BBQ, and parking facilities. We are delighted to welcome families with children but regret we cannot accept animals.
Living on site, we will welcome you when you arrive and can always be on hand to recommend a restaurant, or the best shopping centres, but we will respect your privacy at all times.
We supply a welcome pack to all our guests of tea, coffee, sugar, milk, and a bottle of local French wine just in case you arrive late in the day.
