Clean cut furniture, black stone and light wood, low wooden pannelling and high moulded ceilings - this small apartment has as an undeniable Parisian pied-à-terre feel. And yet, the banks of the Seine are nowhere to be seen, the sight of the open sea and the fresh scent of the Ocean are in their place. This mischevious spot if perfect for exploring the medieval streets of Morbihan's capital and beyond the gulf with the same name.
We are a Franco-Australian family, some of us are originally from Vannes. For others, Vannes is simply a place where they can find their loved ones. We needed a place to welcome them as guests - a comfortable and independent place in a good location.
The architecture of the building is post-Haussmannian. The four-metre-high ceilings have cornices, the walls are decorated with mouldings and the floors are parquet.
The architecture resolved the problem of a triangular plot that remained undeveloped until the mid-1800s. A developer commissioned an architect to build three independent buildings in the available space. We know that a chapel once stood where our apartment is located. The building was taken by the German occupation forces during the Second World War because of its privileged location in Vannes. An interior designer then lived in the apartment during the 1990s.
We offer them a comfortable apartment overlooking the sea, 200 metres from the marina in Vannes.
We highly recommend going to the market to taste some "Nénettes" - small cone-shaped chocolates by mother and daughter chocolatiers, Sylvie and Eve Cardon. "Le Corlazo", a bar-restaurant located on the Conleau Peninsula five minutes away by car, has a panoramic view of the Gulf of Morbihan. It is a wonderful place to daydream and watch the comings and goings of the sailors with a drink in hand and plate of oysters before you. Picnics are available at "Delicatessen" and the New York/Vannes-style meats and home-made bread and pastries can be enjoyed on the golden sand of the Barre d'Etel as you admire the power and strength of the Atlantic Ocean. There is a collection of old tuna boats that can be visited at the end of the sandbank towards the semaphore station. On the way back, the chapel on the island of St. Cado is worth a visit. In the summertime, nothing is more pleasant than grabbing a seafood platter at the Jegat Oyster farm and enjoying it as the sun sets over the tip of Arradon.
The suite has already been rented for fashion photos. The lobby can also be a pleasant setting. The advantage is that crews can rehearse and shoot here whilst also moving around the city and keeping the same base. For parking, Marshal Joffre square is right in front of the apartment.
