Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The cottage is a pretty converted stone farm building with exposed beams, a large granite fireplace with cosy wood-burning stove and many other original features which looks directly out onto a large garden and fields beyond.
It's in a great position for exploring the beautiful beaches and coastline to the north (approximately 15 minutes by car), the magical forest and château to the west (approximately 20 minutes), the national watersports centre and its canoeing facilities at Jugon les Lacs to the south (also 15 minutes) and the beautiful medieval town of Dinan and its old port which is about 20 minutes drive to the south east.
The house is well hidden in a rural location in the heart of the countryside, but the nearest village is less than a mile away. There you'll find a well-stocked village store. Why not use one of our bikes to get you there? The floral town of Plancoet which has a great hypermarket is 10 minutes' drive away by car.

The cottage offers spacious comfortable accommodation for your summer holiday. As you walk in from its private driveway with plenty of parking you will see the feature exposed stone walls of the living room and the huge pink granite fireplace with its wood-burning stove (a starter pack of logs are usually left for you). Relax in our comfortable sofas and enjoy the fire or watch TV. At the other end of the room the dining area seats up to six people. This the perfect place to relax and enjoy a glass of French wine or Plancoet spring water. The separate kitchen is well-equipped for all your holiday needs. Our drawers are fully stocked with every utensil you might need for preparing French gastronomic delights.
The main bathroom with over-bath shower and WC are on the ground floor of the cottage whilst upstairs for convenience there is a separate WC.
The largest of the two bedrooms has a double bed and a comfy single daybed as well as a wardrobe and drawers. The second bedroom also has a comfortable double bed and storage space. It is tucked cosily in the eaves of the cottage. The cottage has a large mezzanine landing with another comfortable daybed. All beds will be made up ready for your arrival.
If you have small children, we have a cot and a high chair available at the cottage. A permanent stair gate is installed at the top of the stairs (it can remain open against the wall if you don't have any children staying with you). Please note that we are unable to provide bed linen for the cot.
|Further details outdoors|
The space outside is perfect for relaxing. The garden is so large that part of it is farmed by the local farmer! There is a BBQ and garden furniture for enjoying long lazy Breton summer evenings. And with no light pollution it's perfect for stargazing on clear nights. Remember to bring your binoculars or even a telescope!
Why not use our bikes (3 adult size) for trips around the local area?
Your English-speaking contact for the holiday lives a couple of villages away.
We will send you your comprehensive arrival details/map no later than 2 weeks before the start of the holiday.
The Brittany region
The coastline to the north of the region has beautiful sandy coves and beaches, the west coast is wild and the south coast is generally calmer and milder. Not far from the house there are pretty sailing ports and working harbours. Medieval Dinan with its cobbled streets and old port with creperies sums up the Breton spirit.
There's so much to do in the Cotes d'Armor region. Or alternatively you could travel further afield. This list is by no means comprehensive:
