About this property

La Lucine 2 Bedroom Cottage in Renovated Farmhouse. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Jackie and Mike invite you to totally relax and unwind and experience the peace and rural tranquillity of Le Lucine (featuring wheelchair access), part of Petits Papillons, their early 19th century longere (long-house). Once a working farm it has been lovingly renovated and converted into 3 spacious, deluxe, self catering holiday cottages. Each gite (cottage) features delightful, comfortable rooms, mostly en suite bathrooms, exposed original timber and stone work, and views across the extensive gardens and rolling countryside.
We also offer home cooked cuisine (at an additional charge), using home grown fresh garden produce and free range eggs, which is highly recommended by previous guests.
Plus you will be greeted by a small welcome pack including tea, coffee, milk, sugar, biscuits, fruit juice and regional cider.
If you are feeling slightly more energetic, then Petits Papillons is well located for walking and cycling in the beautiful surrounding countryside and nearby Nantes-Brest Canal, or a short drive from delightful chateaux and market towns, historic sites and the beaches of southern Brittany and the unique Gulf of Morbihan.
Local activities include: walking; cycling (we have cycles for hire); horse riding (2 stables nearby); golf (3 courses within 40 mins drive); boating; fishing, historic buildings and ancient Celtic sites.
Within walking/cycling distance are 3 or 4 pretty country villages with bars/tabacs/restaurants, boulangeries, charcuteries and a short drive away are small towns with more restaurants, local markets and supermarkets.
