Located in the beautiful department of Morbihan in southern Brittany, Couetilliec, which in Breton means Stone in the Forest, comprises 4 charming C17th and C18th stone cottages in 22 acres of private woodland, lawns, meadow, stream and a heated pool.

Mulberry cottage is perfect for families; you will find lots to do in the heated swimming pool, extensive lawns and woodland or just enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Everyone can relax and play in safety as Couetilliec is at the end of a country lane with no passing traffic and absolutely no road noise.

Mulberry cottage is an extremely spacious and beautiful 17th century two bedroom stone cottage, with an airy open plan ground floor. Fitted kitchen with electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. Dining area with dresser, table and six chairs. The lounge has an L-shaped leather sofa and a tree piece suite, a Jotul wood burning stove set in a granite and wooden beamed fireplace, English free-to-air satellite 50" plasma TV and DVD player. A feature granite staircase leads to a landing giving access to two bedrooms and the bathroom. The bedrooms comprise a very large double and a twin/triple. The bathroom has a corner bath with thermostatic shower over, hand basin and toilet. Mulberry cottage also benefits from its own private rear garden giving additional access to the first floor.

Mulberry cottage is a great place if you like an abundance of fauna and flora. We have seen deer, badgers, foxes, buzzards, owls and woodpeckers. There are many ancient pollarded trees most are smothered in an array of mosses, lichens and ferns. With zero light pollution it's also a great place for a spot of star gazing. If your are keen photographer and or artist the opportunities are endless! If you enjoy cycling check out our Brittany Cycle Tours website.

The Brittany region

The Morbihan is one of the most varied departments in France, with prehistoric monuments and historical towns. With ports, castles, villages, beaches and islands along the coast and around the Gulf of Morbihan. This region of southern Brittany is definitely a department with something for everyone.

Carnac is known throughout the world for its unique rows of ancient standing stones. The town is split into two areas: Carnac-Ville, where you'll find the Museum of Prehistory, and Carnac-Plage, a family seaside resort with a state-of-the-art thalassotherapy centre. Oyster farming is big business

Along the Morbihan coast there are numerous small sandy beaches to explore, long expanses of golden slnd stretching from Larmor Plage to Guidel Plage, and many smaller beeches and inlets of Doelan, Le Poldu, Fort Bloque and St Cado to name a few.

The walled town of Vannes is without doubt one of Brittany's most attractive sights and a must-visit on any trip to Morbihan. Wander around the well-preserved medieval streets before enjoying a harbour-side lunch then taking a boat trip around the gulf. Kids will love the aquarium and butterflies. The Butterfly Gardens: exotic butterflies are born and fly freely around you here. It's an amazing sight to see. Branféré Animal Park and Botanical Gardens is a place of wonder and discovery, dedicated to the protection of nature. The animals are free, and feel at home here.

Groix . At 4.3 miles (7 km) long by 1.8 miles (3 km) wide, Île de Groix is Brittany's second largest island after Belle-Île and lies 8.7 miles (14km) off the coast of Lorient. Once a major centre for tuna fishing, Groix is now noted for its lovely (and unusual) beaches and its important concentration of minerals.

Josselin is a must-visit on any tour of the Breton heartlands. From its medieval castle, still lived in by members of the legendary Rohan family, to the doll museum, and from its attractive old town to canal-based fun or forest walks, there's something to interest all members of the family.

Le Faouët named after the beech trees that mark the pretty, rural, hilly area around it, the town of Le Faouët stands quietly in northwest Morbihan. Its centrepiece is its staggering covered market place, but its glorious outlying chapels also made painters flock to it, as is recalled in the museum.

Pont-Aven is best known for its association with the post-Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin. This attractive little village also has some lovely riverside walks, a mouth-watering food speciality and a colourful summer festival.

The Quiberon Peninsula juts out into the sea for 9 miles (14km) and just 72ft (22m) wide at its narrowest point, the Quiberon Peninsula is a tourist destination par excellence. With its rugged coastline, sweeping sandy beaches, fishing villages and rich cultural history, this beautiful area of Morbihan won't disappoint.

North of Belz is the tiny islet of St Cado, a former sardine port, which is reached from the mainland by a short stone bridge. Its pretty whitewashed houses conceal a 12th-century chapel on the site of a 6th-century structure founded by Cado, a Welsh prince. Between the mainland and the islet, a former oyster farmer's cottage sits alone on a rock in the middle of the river – you'll see it on many a postcard.

Belle-Île, 9 miles (15km) off the coast of Morbihan, is Brittany's largest island. After a turbulent past, which included occupation by the British, the 'beautiful isle' is now a magnet for tourists thanks to its temperate climate, magnificent coastline, 60 gorgeous beaches and renowned opera festival.

Brocéliande: King Arthur's forest. About 18 miles (30km) west of Rennes, the forest of Paimpont is all that remains of the vast forest that covered ancient inland Brittany aka Argoat. Legend has it that the 25 square miles (40km2) of woodland is also the location of mythical Brocéliande, the forest of King Arthur.

Camors Adventure Forest. Set off for two and a half hours of adventure with family or friends at the heart of the Camors forest! Come and challenge yourself and test your courage safely, under the watchful eyes of qualified professionals. Camors Adventure Forest offers a varied course with 95 activities for children and adults. Zip lines, vines, rope bridges, pirates' net, surfing, rodeo stirrups, Nepalese bridge and weighbridge.

Guemene sur Scorff

Mulberry cottage is a great place if you like an abundance of fauna and flora. We have seen deer, badgers, foxes, buzzards, owls and woodpeckers. There are many ancient pollarded trees most are smothered in an array of mosses, lichens and ferns. With zero light pollution it's also a great place for a spot of stargazing. If your are keen photographer and or artist the opportunities are endless! If you enjoy cycling checkout our Brittany Cycle Tours website.

Explore the South coast: Lorient and it's beaches are half an hour's drive (25 miles). Le Poldu (27 miles) is a lot quieter and has stunning scenery, there's mile after mile of sandy beaches and coves to explore. Our favourites include St Cado, Le Poludu, Doelan, Guidel Plage and Fort Bloque. Doëlan is tucked into its estuary near famously arty Pont-Aven and Le Pouldu, Doëlan has remained the archetypal little Finistère fishing port. Normally, when separated by water, communities either side carry different names –here it's simply Doëlan Rive Gauche or Rive Droite – Left or Right Bank, as in Paris!

Guemene sur Scorff is an ancient and historic market town (market Thursday afternoons), dating back to the fifteenth century. With its historic monument and picturesque buildings it provides culture and interest to many visitors every year.

Hennebont. A towering 16th-century spire rockets up above the remaining medieval ramparts of Hennebont, an historic port at a strategic river-crossing on the Blavet, at the back of Lorient's huge natural harbour. In the 19th century, industry arrived in town, plus an important stud farm championing the Breton horse. -see Horse Discovery Centre below. The biggest market in the area - Thursday mornings.

The world famous Celtic music festival at Lorient in August. There are numerous festivals all over Brittany during the summer.

West of Mûr-de-Bretagne is the Lac de Guerlédan, Brittany's largest lake. Not only is this the perfect place for sunning yourself or messing about on the water but the area also offers extensive trails for walking and cycling. Boat trips, canoe and pedalo hire on the lake are all recommended. The Quénécan forest and Abbaye de Bon Repos are not to be missed.

Abbaye de Bon-Repos. At the western end of the Lac de Guerlédan overlooking the Nantes-Brest canal, the Abbaye de Bon Repos is a must for lovers of contemporary art. The 12th-century Cistercian abbey hosts regular exhibitions, a weekly farmers' market and a spectacular son et lumière in August.

Just down the road from Bon-Repos discover the steel-manufacturing village of the “Forges des Salles” as it was in the 19th century, the blast furnace, school, the bosses' house and the stables.

The Scorff Valley with its rich, protected natural and historical heritage, the Scorff valley has 400km of marked trails to discover, running between woodland and river.

Lac du Bel-Air is the main tourist attraction of Priziac. This remarkable body of water covers more than 50ha and is surrounded by a green belt of meadows and woods. Boating, fishing, pedal boat rides and sailing are popular activities.

The Blavet valley offers a wide variety of activities for the holidaymaker. For walking and cycling, the River Blavet has a long distance foot and cycle path reached from most of the river crossings, offering a picturesque, flat route from Pontivy to Hennebont - a distance of some 58 kms. The river has a number of canoe/kayak stations and the fishing is good.

Pontivy, now a quiet market town where the River Blavet meets the Nantes-Brest canal, Pontivy was once the seat of one of Brittany's most powerful families before becoming one of Napoléon's 'new towns'. Visit the castle then amble around the streets. Good market on Monday mornings.

Port-Louis, is a short and pleasant boat trip across the bay of Lorient, Port-Louis is worth a day of anyone's time. The main sight is the star-shaped fort, which now houses two fascinating museums, but there's also a nice – and busy – sandy beach. Energetic sorts can take the coastal path to Locmiquélic.

Horse Discovery Centre - Hennebont Stud Farm - after visiting the Hennebont Stud Farm, you will know all there is to know about horses and their relationship with man.

Bats Discovery Centre, Kernascleden, a unique discovery centre, you'll learn all you need to know about bats, through games and experiments, both educational and fun.

The Clay Barn, Kernascleden, pottery painting studio - a creative activity for everyone.

There is a massive indoor pool with water slides, lazy river, spa and sauna in Pontivy.

"Beautiful Cottages in Peaceful Location"
