About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Pauline Severs

We have recently realised our dream of leaving behind the 9-5 jobs and starting a new life in this beautiful area of France. We holidayed a lot in France when our 3 children where little, and more recently after they'd fled the nest and always enjoyed the peace and quiet of the countryside. Our aim is to enjoy a quieter life , growing our own veggies and keeping a couple of chickens for fresh eggs, improving our French and generally living the joie de vie.

Year property purchased 2016
Why this location? We are so lucky to have found our dream house on our first viewing trip. It is an old farmhouse, with two adjoining stone cottages which are the gites. The location is rural and very quiet and peaceful and yet villages with all essentials such as bakery, supermarkets and pharmacies, as well as restaurants and bars, are less than 10 minutes drive away. We are not overlooked and the panoramic views from the house at any time of the year are stunning. We are just a few minutes walk away from l' Oust River and the Brest-Nantes Canal with its miles of safe walking and cycling paths.
Unique benefits of property For a truly french rural experience stay in one of our two stone cottages. You will enjoy the peace and quiet and fabulous views of the valley down to the river. Fishing permits can be obtained in advance so that you are all ready to go. The nearby canal path offers miles of safe walking or cycling with pretty locks along the way. The roads here are ideal for cycling as they are quiet and travel through the beautiful countryside and pretty medieval towns such as Josselin, Pontivy and Rochefort en Terre are all nearby. Across the valley you can see the Abbaye de Timadeuc, a Cistercian Monastery which is just 20 minutes walk or a few minutes drive away. This fascinating Abbaye is open to the public and you can even join the monks for mass on Sundays. The area has two beautiful inland lakes, Lac au Duc and Lac de Guerledan offering scenic walks, beaches and watersports. The southern Brittany beaches and amazing prehistoric standing stones at Carnac and are around an hours drive away.

La Gavotte

A very nice creperie in Rohan (about 6 minutes drive away) serving traditional Breton crepes and galettes (savoury pancakes) as well as steaks , salads etc. Perfect when washed down with a jug of Breton cidre. Its in a great location overlooking the canal.

L'eau D'oust, Rohan

Beautifully prepared French food served with style.


A small mediaeval town that has everything you'd want. Half-timbered buildings, a beautiful Chateau,a lovely river running through where you can hire kayaks and paddle boats. Quirky shops, restaurants and bars. All within 20 minutes drive. Not to be missed.


Lovely town with a mixture of medieval half, timbered buildings and modern shops. Plenty of bars and restaurants and a market every Monday. See Chateau de Rohan and of course the canal running through the centre with boat trips.

Amazing collection of hundreds of prehistoric standing stones. Stonehenge on a grand scale.

Brittany Beaches

So many to choose from. Brittany has 1000 miles of unspoilt coastline.

This is a lovely, comfortable old cottage in a beautiful rural setting with panoramic views over the countryside. The house is spotlessly clean with a well equipped kitchen and a cosy wood-burning stove - for which Tony has a good supply of logs, if the weather is a bit chilly. Outdoors there is a barbecue with table and chairs and a heated swimming pool.

Pauline and Tony are very welcoming hosts and are very knowledgeable about the surrounding area - places to shop or eat and where to visit. They are always available for advice or a friendly chat but are never intrusive.

We had a very pleasant time at Rose Cottage - relaxing in the garden, walking along the canal and visiting some of the many historic towns nearby.

We would definitely recommend this gite and would love to return ourselves.

Thank you Pauline and Tony (and Finn) for making our holiday so enjoyable.

Read some very good reviews on this cottage before booking and it lived up to it's expectations. The cottage was nice and clean and was well furnished. Good quality towels and bedding and everything that we needed was provided. It is a lovely old farmhouse style cottage which looks fabulous in it's setting along with the other cottage. The outside of the cottages have their own gardens which lead onto the swimming pool and beautiful views across the valley for miles. It was also nice to see the chickens in the garden and the owners have a very friendly, well behaved dog.The owners were very friendly and helpful and were also very approachable when we asked for directions and hints on places to visit. It's a shame we had only had a few nights stay here, we would have liked to stay longer as it is such a peaceful location yet only about 15 minutes from beautiful local attractions. Would definitely go back and would certainly recommend it to others.
