Further details indoors

The 100 year old cottage was a Breton farmhouse and has been recently restored.

The cottage still has the original timber beams and the barn opposite is kitted out with table tennis, pool table, dartboard and plenty of games for the children of all ages.

Take out the kayaks and paddle down to St Nicolas des Eaux or explore the river watching the local wildlife.

Swim in the river, many guests before have loved it. Or use the fishing rods and catch bream, carp, perch or pike.

We live close by so we can offer help and advice recommending local restaurants, bars, markets beaches etc if required.

We can also ring the local vet for your appointment.
