We are Paul and Angie from Surrey, England. We bought this traditional French property to provide a home from home in the beautiful countryside of Brittany. We lead very busy lives and going to the cottage is a wonderful escape to de-stress and just chill! We are sure you will agree!

Positives; Well equipped cottage in a rural location. Very clean and comfortable. Central for the many attractions of Brittany. The roads are great for cycling and running. Village 2.5 miles away with small shop/bakery. Pretty towns 20 mins drive away either side. Downsides; We weren't prepared for the lack of WIFI so were caught out with teenagers! A new chicken farm opposite produced a lot of flies which were oppressive.
Thank you for your kind comments however just for the record, we don’t advertise WiFi and took the view that if there turned out to be a demand for this, we would have had it put in. To date, yours was the only request we have had. We would also mention that there isn’t a chicken factory opposite the cottage- however the cottage is located in an area surrounded by farm land. We’ve never had a problem with flies before and therefore believe the unusually hot summer this year had a large part to play in the problem you encountered. We sincerely hope it wasn’t too detrimental to the enjoyment of your holiday.
Really peaceful country setting. Which means you need to be prepared to be mobile to collect stores etc.
Plenty of parking area, which also creates a large area along with one of the lawns where both children and adults can enjoy the many games and activities provided.
The area is full of places of interest to visit from the bustling markets historic caves etc.to the theme parks neer located near Lannion and Brest.
We spent a fortnight here and had a very good holiday.
