About the Owner, Ms Evelyn Taylor

I moved here in 2002, not really knowing anything about Brittany. But I immediately fell in love with the area, the culture and the people. I love the countryside, outdoor life, the pretty villages, towns and of course, I love the lake! The lake is so tranquil, with its lovely paths for walking, the restaurants and good for swimming. So I don't need to travel far for my love of water to be satisfied! And plenty of places for walking with my dog.

Year property purchased 2013
Why this location? Approaching the house for the first time,I fell in love with the location. I could see the potential, and had always wanted to have a project like this. With excellent local artisans I have an old house with all modern facilities. A lovely blend of old and new. The garden is a sun trap, the area is tranquil, and only 4km to Cleguerec with all necessary shops! I live nearby, and I discovered the people are friendly, and the surroundings stunning. The area is principally farming.. tourists are welcomed, and events are on all year round. There are plenty of good restaurants around, and there are plenty of bars nearby. The lake is the huge bonus.. beautiful all year round, with its manmade beaches for swimming and water sports, or just for watching the world go by. The canal is great, too.. for fishing, walking and cycling. And Pontivy is a pretty town with shops and restaurants. Relaxing and destressing, or outdoor activities, or touring. Country living, but not isolated!
Unique benefits of property The house has an enclosed garden, with plenty of room for parking. A safe environment for children and pets alike. Plenty of space for outdoor meals, a great place to relax. The house has been completely renovated, keeping much of its old character, yet with all the comfort of a modern home. Great at all times of the year.. masses of insulation keep the heat in (and out!) and the log burners are very efficient. Toilet facilities upstairs and down, the 3 bedrooms share a family bathroom upstairs. An ideal location for relaxing, or for touring.. both the north and south coasts are about an hour away.
