Description

If you are looking for lots of Breton character with modern conveniences, Les Quatre Mouettes is an ideal choice. Originally built as a shepherd's lodge, with 2 ft. thick walls, it has been transformed into a charming cottage with a large south facing private garden and terrace. A large outdoor dining table, chairs, parasol and bar-b-q ensure that you can spend long days outside. The garden has a swing set and lots of space for kids to kick a ball or play hide and seek.

Downstairs there is a large beamed living room with a huge old fireplace, a modern but cozy kitchen with kitchen isle leading to the semi open dining area. The long Quaker dining table seats 8 comfortably and has French doors leading to the terrace. There is a separate laundry room and toilet. On the second floor there are 3 comfortable double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom and a family bathroom.

The house is situated on a quiet country lane, but within walking distance of a bakery for your daily fresh croissants.

Location description from owner

The Brittany region

Brittany is a unique part of France, both in its natural beauty and the place it takes in French history. For many centuries it was a separate Kingdom and it has strong Celtic influences adding a lot of folklore as well as a bit of mystery to the area. The gentle landscape of sloping hills, thick stoned hydrangea edged cottages make for a picture postcard prettiness.

There are many castles, historic towns, seaside villages and secluded beaches to explore. Miles and miles of stunning coastline along the emerald coloured sea make every trip an adventure.

Within an hour’s drive you find Dinard, St. Malo, Cancalle, and Dinan, to name just a few, all towns worthy of a visit in their own right. Don’t forget Rennes either, the old capital of Bretagne, with its Parisian elegance and another great market on Saturday’s where Parisian restaurateurs will come to do their shopping because of the high quality of merchandise.

For the sports orientated there are a multitude of choices. Running, sailing, golf, tennis, walking, horseback riding are all available. Biking is also very popular, though not for the faint hearted because of the many hills and not really suitable for families as the French tend to drive rather fast , also on narrow country lanes.

Saint-Cast le Guildo

The lovely village of St. Cast is only minutes away, offering a cozy town square with cafe's for a morning coffee, playground, a wonderful Monday market during the summer months and charming local shops and an internet cafe. Don't miss "Ohier", the shop that sells almost everything or the Cote Plage, a wonderful shop offering home furnishings and fun jewellery.

The beautiful 18 holes golf of St. Cast situated along the shore, has an easy atmosphere and locals welcome participation in their tournaments. Golf lessons and clinics are available for both adults and children. More challenging golf courses are nearby.

There are 3 beaches within a 5 minutes’ walk or drive and it is a popular area for running. Several lovely coastal paths make for spectacular walks. There is a new yacht club, one of two centers offering sailing lessons for children and teenagers. It makes for a great way for them to practice and learn French. Rentals are also available.

Le Grand Plage (the more hip beach) and the Pen Guen Plage (more family orientated) are beautiful beaches and are unique along this part of the Breton coast as they are the only ones that don’t turn into mudflats during low tide. The beaches are proud “Blue Flag” recipients indicating these are among the cleanest in France.

Dining is available both in St. Cast and other nearby towns nearby. For fish lovers, this is your chance; the Fruit de Mer platters are something to be experienced. The whole area is famous for its mussels, oysters and coquilles St. Jacques and people come from as far as Paris to buy them.

The many Creperies, another famous local speciality, make for nice and very reasonable lunches and dinners.
