We stayed here a couple of summers ago on our first visit to Brittany from Paris. It is a true gem. So summer of 2017 we decided to go again to this peaceful place. We stayed in a different house this time but it was equally beautifully furnished in doors as the first one and with a relaxing private sitting area outdoors among the flowers. You will very well taken care of here no doubt! There is also plenty to see and do in the surroundings. Just strolling along the beach to Sainte Marine to have some crêpes is lovely.
I can truly recommend La Ferme St Vennec.

I would just echo the comments of the other reviwers that this is a lovely place to spend a few days. The room was very clean, bed comfy etc. Julie was very helpful and her breakfasts were excellent with new jams every day!

Only feedback I'd give is the coffee at breakfast is poor. I think she used a nespresso machine but it was so dilute that verged on undrinkable. Much prefer a cafetiere.

It's true. I really don't want to write this review because I don't want to tell anyone about it; we want to keep it to ourselves!
This is a truly beautiful place in a wonderful part of the world and is owned and run by two marvelous people, Mme et M. Perrin.
Beautiful rooms or self catering cottages with excellent beds and exquisite bathrooms are complemented by well kept and extensive grounds, superb pool and sun deck in a great location, bettered only by Julie's wonderful breakfasts featuring home made yoghurt and different home made preserves every day.
As I said, I don't want to write about this place, but it is truly wonderful.
Now, on practical matters, it is out of Sainte Marine by about 3km and taxis are non existent or eye wateringly expensive so be prepared to drive or, as we did, take bikes. Bike lanes are wide and well marked and suitable for families. Great restaurants in the area and Julie is the oracle on the subject. Every recommendation proved perfect. I have also provided restaurant reviews. Will be going back, that's for sure.

If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings, then Ferme Saint-Vennec will delight you. Our ground floor room was very comfortable and we woke up to the sound of birdsong in the trees. Breakfast was served by Julie - home made yogurt, fresh strawberries, french bread and pastries and some delicious home made jams made by her husband. The decor in all areas was very tasteful and beautiful with great attention paid to detail. Julie was warm and friendly and provided us with plenty of information about the local area. Unfortunately the poor weather meant that we couldn't take advantage of the sun beds around the pool! The cottages are furnished to an extremely high standard. The renovation work of the whole farm was undertaken by the incredibly hard working partnership of Julie and her husband. They deserve every accolade. Thank you.

My son and I look forward to coming back one day to Saint Vennec. Julie and her little boy were very sweet and it is a pleasure to stay somewhere not only gorgeous and relaxing in the Brittany countryside, but obviously a labor of love for the family owners. (We think it was Dad who was cleaning the bedrooms in the morning, but didn't quite clarify!).

The grounds are entirely rustic but with a huge, closely cut lawn that is more the size of a field and ideal for family football and rounders. There's a children's slide and swings at the far end of the pasture, and of course the heated swimming pool, which we wanted to go in (and were reassured was lovely and warm) but the wind chill in mid-May was still a bit of an issue at dusk, so we chickened out!

We only stayed one night, unfortunately, and would have gladly stayed longer. Our room on the first floor (6 or 7, we think) was very comfortable, had lovely down pillows, a perfectly weighted duvet for the time of year, and a coffee machine and all other mod cons we could think of but didn't use. The bathroom amenities were also excellent and everything was spotlessly clean. As for breakfast, my 10 year old said it was best he had ever had. It was typically French - yoghurt, fruit salad, fresh pastries and croissant, delicious jams, but much of the produce we believe was sourced from the farm, and that was very good to hear.

We note one English reviewer mentioned the slightly limited check in times and had an issue with paper cups in the bedroom next to the Nespresso machine. These are trifling issues and I can't imagine many people can fail to organise their travel plans such that they can't arrive within a generous timeframe for check in ... And i'm sure if there were any problems en route, the owners would be only too delighted to step out of their cottage opposite reception to deal with your paperwork and the formalities should you be late.

We were simply delighted to stay somewhere that was being run by a hardworking family that obviously take great pride in their business, offer a tremendous "product" (to use that terrible neoliberalism) ... and also manage to maintain some type of work life balance for themselves while their guests get on with the task of relaxing. Tremendous all round, say we!
