About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Suzanne Burgess

We live in Tunbridge Wells in Kent but love France and perhaps one day we shall be living there.

Year property purchased 2014
Why this location? At Ville Cade you are very central and can visit both North and South coasts of Brittany and they are so different. The north coast reminds us of Cornwall and on a sunny day the South Coast makes you feel as though you are right in the south of France (without the travelling!)
Unique benefits of property The pool and garden are so secluded and private and there is so much space in the house

The Owner Recommends


Approximately 20 minutes south is the medieval town of Josselin, which is located on the Nantes-Brest Canal, You can visit its 11th century chateau, the doll museum, the weekly market (Saturday morning) and various shops. The town also has an abundance of restaurants and bars and is serviced by several large supermarkets.

Lac Du Duc

This beautiful large lake is only 15 minutes drive and boasts watersports and swimming facililties with its sandy beach.


Ploermel is located approximately 20 minutes south/south east and was originally founded in the 6th century. The dukes of Brittany lived in this area for centuries before the end of the independence of the area. It is a more commercial centre with a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants. Just outside Ploermel is the Le Lac au Duc, which is a lake of approximately 250 hectares with a nautical centre and a beach. You may hire sailing boats, canoes and windsurfers. The beach area is ideal for families with easy access to a swimming area. Around the lake you will find the hortensia trail (hydrangeas) which when in season are beautiful. This whole area is linked to the legend of Merlin and the forest of Broceliande is nearby with it’s legends and places of interest.


The walled city of Vannes lies on the coast around 45 minutes away. The city is enclosed in its ramparts and sits at the head of the Gulf of Morbihan. It dates back to the 3rd and 4th century and children will enjoy the little train, which will take you on a tour. This is also a good departure point for boat trips across the Gulf.

A beautiful and charming stone cottage. Set is stunning gardens in a tranquil setting. Everything needed for a holiday is available. A lovely warm heated pool was an added bonus. About 2 miles to local village - bakery, shop, bar, restaurant.

Would definitely recommend and will be returning.

Owner response

Thank you for your kind comments. We are so pleased you liked our cottage and I must say thank you for letting me know about the washing line and broken lounger which have now been replaced with new ones. We hope you will visit again.
