About this property

Quality 2-bed Cottage in Peaceful Surroundings. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Chene is a spacious 2 bedroomed cottage in a very peaceful location with panoramic views of the rolling countryside.
 
On arrival at Clistivan, you’ll receive a very warm welcome from Andrew and Lyndsey, the resident owners.  Entering the cottages, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the spacious accommodation; guests say the photos don’t do it justice.  And outside you’ll be blown away by the peace and tranquility of the surrounding countryside.
 
Both our holiday cottages, Chêne and Hêtre, are spotlessly clean, safe and very comfortable. The cottages can also be interlinked, providing accommodation for 8 people. They are very well equipped, with a fenced garden, UK satellite tv, dvd, Internet, washing machine, microwave, dishwasher, books, toys and games.
 
Surrounded by fields, Clistivan offers you rest, relaxation and rural charm; yet we’re just 6 minutes from the local market town of Baud. Clistivan is situated 25 minutes from the south coast city of Vannes. Brittany's medieval cities, standing stones, forests and beautiful beaches are all within a 30min drive.
 
The cottage is a real 'home from home'.  Well situated to take advantage of the many things to see and do in south Brittany.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Andrew Smith

We live here all year round. We teach English to French business people, but not in the summer season. We love walking, kayaking, ice-skating, swimming, playing tennis, theatre, music...

Year property purchased 2000
Why this location? Probably the view! And the fact that the house is all on its own. It's near the coast, but calm and quiet. Just 6 mins to a good-sized town and the dual carriageway between Rennes and Lorient.
Unique benefits of property Without a doubt, the peace and quiet. Visitors also appreciate our warm welcome, tourism recomendations and the fact that we are on hand if needed.

The Owner Recommends

Boat Trip and Cycling on Ile aux Moines

A short 5 minute ferry crossing takes you to this island in the Golfe du Morbihan (30 mins from us) where you'll find no cars, but little lanes, lovely beaches, and great restaurants. A perfect day out.

We have just returned from a lovely week spent in Chene.
The cottage is very comfortable and is situated in idyllic countryside.
Andrew and Lyndsey were very welcoming hosts.
Baud, the nearest small town, surprised given its size by having quite a few good restaurants.
We used the cottage as a base to explore all that Brittany had to offer, beautiful villages and the coast around the Golfe du Morbihan.
We could even consider a move to France!

Owner response

Hi Hugh and Jenny. I'm glad you found the cottage comfortable and had a good holiday. Could I just ask why you only scored 7 for cleanliness? Perhaps there are some things we should point out to our cleaning lady. We pride ourselves in providing clean, tidy and well equipped cottages. Many thanks, Lyndsey and Andrew
