About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Mary Salter

We have lived in Le Cosquer since 2010 but bought the property 5 years before when it was in need of complete renovation, even then it was love at first sight. We found it increasingly difficult to leave each time we visited and finally made the decision to move here permanently.

Year property purchased 2005
Why this location? We fell in love with the area instantly. It is situated in a beautiful countryside location but only 25 minutes from the coast, beaches and Golf du Morbihan.
Our little community of Le Cosquer is 2km from Quistinic which is a lovely traditional Breton commune. There is easy access to the historic towns of Auray, Hennebont, Josselin, Pontivy and Vannes to name but a few. The River Blavet is minutes drive away where you will find fishing, canoeing/kayaking and many miles of towpath for tranquil walks and cycle rides. Canoe and Cycle hire can be found along the towpath. La Maison Blanche has it's own private and secluded heated pool with countryside views.
Unique benefits of property A beautiful house sympathetically renovated with traditional Breton furniture but with all of the comforts of home with a fully integrated kitchen. The heated private pool is situated to the side of the house and is secluded. It is a wonderful place to relax in the sunshine while overlooking the countryside. The pool is completely fenced in and has double locks for inquisitive little hands.

We had the most wonderful week in the La Maison Blanche. From beginning to end, every thoughtful detail by the lovely owners Mary and Chris, led to a really enjoyable, relaxed and memorable stay. They kindly provided a welcome pack which included wine, local eggs, apple juice, milk, butter and the best baguette we have ever had. Later that night Chris returned with some home grown potatoes, fresh lettuce and a fabulous pot of fresh herbs. What a great start to a holiday! The kitchen was spacious, extremely well equipped and had the best quality cutlery and crockery we have ever come across in all our holidays. It's all the little things like beautiful serving bowls, oven dishes, salt and pepper mills, that make this place special. Certainly by far and away the best we have ever come across in France. The whole house is beautifully decorated, with extremely comfortable beds. There are 3 bathrooms, two of which had luxury rainforest showers. Outside an expansive front shared garden and then of course the pool. It really is hard to describe how idyllic this setting was. The pool is clean, heated ( which is rare !), and has a backdrop of beautiful cornfields. Our children just loved it and had hours of fun. We thought this was a great location for travelling around Brittany and are leaving with still lots of places we wished we had time to see. Mary and Chris are exceptional hosts who are very warm, genuine people, and provide s first class holiday home. Highly recommended!!
