About the home
Le Cosquer is a 16th century Breton farm situated in the heart of the Brittany region in France. Although the farm is no longer being used as such, the house has been sympathetically restored and the barn converted into a Gite.
All of the accommodation is insulated, double glazed and comfortably furnished. The farmhouse sleeps 8 and the gite sleeps 6.
There is generous parking space with all the accommodation. For those looking for a quiet day, what better than to sit in the apple orchard with a bottle of wine and a good book?
We are happy to welcome any golfers, fishermen, walkers, cyclists and motorcyclists on our wonderfully clear roads and peaceful countryside in groups or pairs. See our page on golfing holidays and we can put together a programme for any type of holiday you want. Obviously, groups would find May, June, July and September more acceptable for their purposes.

The Brittany / Cotes-D'Armor region
Le Cosquer is situated one mile outside of the village of St Connec, which comprises a church, Mairie and play area, found in all French villages and a bar. Just five miles away is Lake de Guerledan, with sandy beaches and safe bathing for those who do no want the hustle and bustle of sea beaches. Boat trips, water sports, fishing, cycling and walking are all available in this very beautiful area. If you have your own boat, bring it! There are no launch fees and launching is very easy.For all you mad keen fishermen and women out there you will be spoilt for choice in the area around your gite.
The Lac de Guerledan is teeming with different varieties of fish, whether you're out for Carp, roach, rudd, trout zander, perch or a 40lb pike !! One was caught last year weighing in at 17kg.If you prefer River fishing, the Blavet river and Nantes Brest Canal are only 5 minutes away also, where you can fish for the same variety. Fishing is a huge past time in France and you will see fishermen everywhere where there's water !! It's a great place to introduce kids to the sport as quite a few villages have their own private ponds stocked with trout, and they have picnic benches and wide banks and only charge around 5 euros for a days fishing !
The Loudeac area
The area surrounding St Connec has many pretty villages with superb restaurants and churches, and along with the Napoleonic Castle at Pontivy, Bon Repos Abbey, La Forge des Salles, all go towards making this a great area of architectural study.
For those who prefer the sea, Carnac, with its long, sandy beaches, the megaliths and the oyster beds, is an easy hour's drive away. The beaches in the North, which don't get so busy, and as the coast is more rocky there are little pools to play in and many shells to be found.
There is a choice of all sizes of shops, from hypermarkets in Londeac and Pontivy, to the shop on site for basics.
Eating out is a pleasure,at the Lake, and in Pontivy and Londeac. All are very reasonable and very good. There's plenty to do, from sightseeing the lovely chateaux, visiting the coast or go-carting. We'll be there to tell you all about it.
