TAUPONT, La Vallée du Ninian

Brittany

Selected for its lovely relaxing environment by the Ninian river in the heart of the Breton countryside, this is a well maintained, peaceful little site. The new owners are keen to enhance the beauty of the natural surroundings. The small river running along the edge of the site is a great attraction. The on-site restaurant has improved dramatically as one of the new owners is a trained chef and he enjoys organising barbecue evenings and 'soirées moules frites'. *Clef Verte*
