Further details indoors

There are 4 bedrooms (2 double, 1 twin and 1 small single), 2 bathrooms (1 with bath, washbasin and wc, which serves 1 double, the twin and the single room, and 1 with a large shower, washbasin and wc which is adjacent to the master bedroom accessed up a separate flight of stairs from the sitting room). The spacious kitchen diner has a newly fitted kitchen including electric multi function oven, induction hob, microwave, warming drawer, fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

The dining table seats 8 and there is a TV with English Sky freeview channels, CD and DVD players (a selection of DVDs) plus additional comfortable seating. The large sitting room has a wood burning stove for which there is an ample supply of logs in the barn. The house has oil fired central heating and is double glazed throughout. The boiler is in the basement together with a washing machine, tumble dryer and additional sink. The house has WI-Fi and Broadband access.

The village shop is a short walk away and provides all basic necessities including, of course, French bread and croissants. There is also a small bar next to it. A more extensive range can be obtained from the nearby town of Chateauneuf du Faou which has 2 large supermarkets, a regular weekly market (Wednesday), a visiting fishmonger (outside Le Clerc on Fridays) and a choice of restaurants ranging from Pizzarias to the Relais de Cornailles which appears in the Michelin Guide. There is fishing in the river and boats can be hired in Chateauneuf near the indoor swimming pool.

Beaches are easily accessible - both gentle bathing to the south (about half an hour) and some of Europe’s best surfing beaches to the west (about 45 minutes).

The historic town of Quimper on the River Odet is within easy reach and a little further will take you to the elegant seaside resort of Benodet (river cruises link the two). Not to be missed are the port of Concarneau with its wonderful medieval walled close, and the lovely estuary town of Pont Aven, famed for its artists and one time home of Paul Gaugin.

Walking in Brittany is spectacular, ranging from Atlantic cliff-top walks round the Crozon Peninsular and woodland and river rambles. Guide books and maps at the house contain extensive information about places to visit and walks. The ever-growing “Hollen Book of Knowledge” contains tips on fishing, trips and local guides as well as favoured restaurants, bird sanctuaries, expeditions and adventure parks.

Further details outdoors

French windows lead from the sitting room on to the large terrace. The house is set in over an acre of ground (mostly laid to lawn) with slopes and a flat area for games with a wooded boundary to the north which has proved perfect for building a tree house!

The Brittany region

Brittany is the westernmost region of mainland France and the coast is similar to Cornwall with hundreds of miles of rugged coastline comprising great rugged cliffs, miles of beautiful sandy beaches and tiny coves and ports - but all a few degrees warmer than the UK. The region is renowned for its produce both from the sea and land.

Beaches are easily accessible - both gentle bathing to the south (about half an hour) and some of Europe’s best surfing beaches to the west (about 45 minutes).
