Le Gîte Blé Noir
 

The Blé Noir gîte is completely independent of the manor house and has three pleasantly decorated and traditionally furnished bedrooms.  The first bedroom has a double bed, the second has two single beds and the third has a single bunk-bed.  There is also a bathroom, a lounge with a television and DVD player, a spacious dining room with a fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, and a terrace with dining and barbecue area.  A selection of games, toys, books and comics is at your disposal.  Sheets and towels are available for hire on request.  Our gîte guests are invited to come and enjoy a drink with us upon arrival. 


Blé noir
(buckwheat) or sarrazin was brought back by the crusades and was eaten by the “Sarrazin”, from whom it derives its name.  Inappropriately named “black wheat”, this annual plant can grow to 80cm and looks similar to rhubarb.  Not suitable for bread-making, buckwheat was grown right across the Duchy under the rule of Anne de Bretagne, making it the staple food of Brittany.  Why not try a crêpe or galette made from buckwheat, or buckwheat honey with its pronounced flavour?

 

Our gîte guests can also enjoy the games on offer at our chambres d’hôtes (bed and breakfast), including board games, table tennis, comics, videos, badminton and various ball games…

 

Watch our animals roaming freely in the 3 hectares of countryside around the Clos du Tay.

 

Your (well trained!) animals are welcome – please contact us for details.  Dogs must be kept on a lead and behave responsibly around our animals.

 

We can advise our guests on trips and days out in the area.  There are many walking and mountain-biking circuits all around Clos du Tay.  GR30, GR347 and Equibreiz are directly accessible by paths and lanes from the Clos du Tay.

 

Information is available on places to visit and you are welcome to browse the tourist brochures in the lounge of the bed and breakfast.

 

A selection of local and regional produce, ciders and wines are available for purchase.  You will have the opportunity to try some of these products at the table d’hôtes.

Le Gîte Palis

The  Gîte
Close to the manor, the Palis gîte is in a wooden terraced house with a slate roof.  It includes a beautiful wooden-decked terrace with a canopy for protection against the sun, garden furniture and barbecue, living room with TV, pine-panelled cathedral ceiling, cabin bedroom with double bed (140cm), shower room (with spacious multi-jet shower), and mezzanine bedroom equipped with twin beds (90 x 190cm).

 

Sheets and towels are available for hire on request.

The Pâlis
The countryside surrounding La Gacilly is home to many pâlis, ancient black schist slabs, the existence of which proves that Brittany is not merely a region of granite.  At the Clos du Tay the lintels are black schist and the chimney and walls are made from local stone.



Pâlis and the schist cross

The biggest slabs were used for building, such as interior walls, pigsties or stables, while smaller slabs were used as fences to divide up pieces of land and prevent animals from straying.  Interwoven vegetation (la plesse) supported the pâlis, thus completing the fence.  Today pâlis are used to decorate gardens or as paving slabs.


Walls made from schist pâlis

 

You will be able to discover pâlis of all kinds at the Clos du Tay.

 

 

Our gîte guests can also enjoy the games on offer at our chambres d’hôtes (bed and breakfast), including board games, table tennis, comics, videos, badminton and various ball games…

Le Gîte Ardoisine
  Label Tourisme et Handicap

The  Gîte
Situated close to the manor, the Ardoisine gîte is in a wooden terraced house with a slate roof.  It includes a beautiful covered wooden-decked terrace the length of the wall, garden furniture and barbecue, pine-panelled living room with TV, spacious bedroom with twin beds (90cm), cabin bedroom with two bunk beds, and shower room (with spacious Italian shower).

This gîte is specially adapted for wheelchair users.

 

Parking is provided opposite the gîte.

 

Sheets and towels are available for hire on request.

 

The Tiles
Slate roofs are extremely common in Brittany and slate itself is part of local heritage.  Slate has been extracted from open quarries since the 12th Century, and over time slate roofs have replaced thatched roofs.  Slate roofs are known for their watertightness and durability - old slates 7mm thick can last for up to 200 years.

Before terracotta ridge tiles were used, many roofs bore a Lignolet, a criss-cross series of jagged slates to keep out the rain.  Many houses in Saint Martin sur Oust and Saint Vincent sur Oust have had their Lignolets restored to their former glory.  The photo shows a Lignolet here at the Tay.
 

Our gîte guests can also enjoy the games on offer at our chambres d’hôtes (bed and breakfast), including board games, table tennis, comics, videos, badminton and various ball games…
