  • In the Vitré countryside, Les Foudres de La Fouquais offers an unusual experience: spending one or more nights in an immense barrel transformed into a B&B room! A really friendly break that's guaranteed to take you away from it all.

    In Cornillé, near Vitré, Françoise et Denis have created a unique village where the hospitality is typically Breton. They have transformed 'foudres' – gigantic barrels – into B&B rooms. Five spacious but cosy barrel-rooms have been arranged in a half-circle around a central square, with tables and a fire pit, and to complement the whole thing there are bathroom and lounge areas. A welcome aperitif will give you the chance to learn the amazing story of this place. Then your evening will continue by the fireside with other guests or around the table with Françoise. On the menu are galettes (buckwheat pancakes), grills and crêpes! At breakfast you can enjoy farm produce: apple juice and dairy products. For days out, Vitré, Fougères, Chateaugiron or La Roche aux Fées are not far away. This exciting area has plenty to offer: choose from markets, ancient monuments, festivals and walking trails.
