About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Emma Pugh

We had a plan 5 years before we retired to move to France and that day finally came in August 2014! We both worked in the forces and dreamed of having a small holding in a peaceful location, growing our own vegetables and keeping a few animals. We have a few sheep and pigs and have had a bumper crop of vegetables this year, which we offered to guests staying in the gite. We thoroughly enjoy the lifestyle Brittany provides us it's extremely peaceful and more than we dreamed of.

Year property purchased 2014
Why this location? We loved the fact that although we feel totally rural it's a perfect location to explore, we are close to all the coastlines and only an hour to Brest or 40 minutes to Quimper a beautiful city steeped in history, we are also in the Park d'Armonique which has amazing landscapes to explore, we feel we have everything we need nearby and come home to a beautiful secluded spot with only the birds and trees making any noise.
Unique benefits of property As I said above everything you could want is within easy reach, all our guests have said that they have never felt so relaxed and that is exactly how we want all our guests to feel, we renovated the gite ourselves with great care and thought for comfort, keeping original features also. A starter pack is provided free of charge for your convenience on arrival such as milk, water, tea, coffee and of course a bottle of wine!

Great base to discover this part of Brittany, we were never bored - despite the almost constant rain during our stay. The owners are very helpful & friendly whilst at the same time being respectful of our privacy. The cottage is in a lovely quiet area & very relaxing, and for the price we paid it was good value for money. However we do feel that there could be some improvements made to enhance the overall quality of the experience for guests - little things mainly, but they do add up.
