linen rest cocooning time for yourself authenticity calm
THE PROPERTY OF HILVERN, near the Hilvern’s river in the middle of Brittany, is an old village of linen weavers dated from the 18th century, situated in St Caradec between Loudéac and Guerlédan‘s lake.
A park surrounds the property with grass and trees giving an idyllic and peaceful environment.

As you are situated in the middle of Brittany, you can easily reach a number of famous landmarks, like the “Pointe du Raz”, Cap Fréhel, The Mont St Michel, Morbihan ‘s bay, Pink Granite Coast, Saint Malo, Carnac’s Domens and Quimper….

Hilvern is the sole property in this area of Brittany to have 4 stars for a self catering cottage thanks to the linen decoration inside. Please find our references through the link “lin vers l’hôte”.

The way of life in Brittany is closely entwined with the sea and the land. In the middle of Brittany, which is less frequented by tourists, you could come across many small lovely villages which is the perfect way to spend a peaceful holiday…

For walkers, the property is located on two well known routes : the GR 371 and GR 341 and on the road of St Jacques of Compostelle. The canal Nantes to Brest is also very near and is ideal for bike rides or walks along this lovely stretch of water.
You will also find some rich history at the property of Hilvern, where you can see the age of the house: 1711. During the 18th century, this area was very rich and famous because of the growing of flax. The transformation in linen was a real opportunity to export this product to a number of destinations, especially to Spain and the New World.

Thanks to this, this area has many castles (famous duc des Rohan), medieval cities (Moncontour) as well as the beautiful houses of rich weavers…You can visit those places through out the year and enjoy many cultural events. Linen and hemp don’t belong only to the past. They are also part of our modern more ecological way of life. You can also find them in agriculture textiles and buildings.

This property is open all the year for both gites and bed & breakfast. We hope your stay will be unforgettable, especially for the breakfast, it’s made in breiz!
