About this property

A Spacious, Bright, Cosy and Well Appointed Cottage. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

The Longère is one of 3 larges gîtes and a bourgeois house and other outbuildings that have been renovated recently by the best local tradesmen. In fact it is a beautiful farmstead in the lieu dit "leuriou" in the commune of St Coulitz  within 5km of the charming country town of Chateaulin, through which flows the canal linking Brest to Nantes.
 
The whole area is within the national parc of l'Armorique, a mere 15km to the beautiful  beaches of Pentrez and St Nic and the  wonderful penisula of Crozon the local centre for all watersports.
 
The longère is the most luxurious and appealing of all the 3 gîtes for many reasons. To start with it's self contained in the sense that it has its own gardens, bbq area, the added bonus of a large verandah which can easily serve as extra bedding space should the need arise. It has excellent facilities, a well equipped kitchen, with a dishwasher, microwave, separate electric oven, enough cutlery and china for 12 people usually, the washing machine and the spindryer are located in the verandah together with the ordinary drying  washing line. There is also another table for playing card games, painting etc and plenty of seating capacity.
 
The living room is absolutely huge, welcoming,  tastefully decorated offering a large comfortable settee, and plenty of armchairs, a coffee-table, satellite tv and wi-fi not to forget a well assorted library offering books in different languages  as well as magazines and brochures about the sightseeing places of interest to the visitors. The bathroom is large, with a bath tub and a separate shower. There are 2 wcs, 1 on the ground floor and 1 on the 1st floor.
 
The 3 bedooms are well appointed with the bedding being the most appreciated by the clients.

The property is situated right in the middle of a stunning rural area yet within easy access to all the amenities and utilities.
 
We are within 2km of the expressway linking Brest to Quimper;  12km to Locronan, a magnificient medieval village where a lot of documentary films are made regularly. We are lucky to be in a such a central area of the Finistère within easy access to the main towns  of  the county, airports of Quimper and Brest, railway stations of Chateaulin, Quimper,  and Brest; golf courses of  Quimper,  Brest and Benodet etc. De to changes in the waiting time stipulated by France telecom to get access to WIFI (between 8 and 12 days )à I am afraid none of the gîtes ( cottages ) now offer wifi so there is no access to internet anymore .Moreover the 3 cottages are intended for non smokers only and all animals are not accepted ..
