An insight to Domaine des Ormes

Why become an owner at Domaine des Ormes?

les_ormes_2012-323peter_allanThere are so many plus points in buying a mobile home in Brittany and especially at Domaine des Ormes. Not only is this delightful region of Northern France just a stone’s throw away from the UK and so easily accessible by ferry, plane and by car, it also has so much to offer in its culture, gastronomy and history.

The Emerald Coast, named after the distinctive colour of the sea, stretches from Mont St Michel; the most visited heritage site in France, across to the walled city of St Malo with its distinctive ramparts, sandy beaches and bustling port and beyond.

This region is home to delightful Breton villages, stunning fishing ports and some of the finest oysters in France.  Popular seaside towns are Cancale, Dinard, Saint Lunaire, Saint-Cast-Le-Guildo, Lancieux, Saint-Briac-sur-Mer and Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer where the sand is fine and golden, the architecture is stunning and gastronomic traditions live on.

Slightly further inland and a 30 minute drive south of the park is the city of Rennes where you will find even more history, culture, an abundance of great restaurants and bars and some fabulous shops too.  Many of our current home owners at Domaine des Ormes love a good old shopping trip to Rennes whilst their “other halves” spend the day on the golf course!

So why Domaine des Ormes?

There really is something for everyone here; at one end of the spectrum is great family fun, action and adventure, adrenaline sports, zip wiresentertainment and weekly fireworks (in high season only) and at the other away from all the bustle of the main facilities are more gentle options such as strolling leisurely throughout the grounds of the Domaine, having lunch at one of the park’s 4 restaurants or simply relaxing on your pitch with a book soaking up the sunshine.

What is it really like?

driveway takes you past the Domaine’s own riding stables and hotel and then opens out onto a huge expanse of greenery housing part of the 18 hole golf course, its clubhouse and an 18th century château where the De La Chesnais family (the park’s owners) live.

There is a real sense of community and camaraderie at Domaine des Ormes where home owners are treated like one of the family and firm friendships are made. The site owner has even been known to take some of the owners out in his helicopter on the odd occasion too! Holiday home owners here have longer access dates than the general public and are able to use their homes from April to November where they can come and go as they please.

Despite the bustle of this large family orientated park, absolute silence is required in residential areas from 11pm and a team of security guards ensures this.  Safety is paramount here where all holidaymakers are treated with the utmost respect.
