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.

Lavender Cottage was the perfect retreat, a self contained and very comfortable Gite.
Local shops with friendly staff to supply bread, croissants, cakes, pastries, more cakes!
Supermarkets are a shorts drive or cycle ride away and carry a wide variety of food stuff, wine, beer, car & cycle spares and fishing equipment.
There are some beautiful places to visit within an hours car journey
The Nantes-Breast canal is close by, where we enjoyed traffic free cycling, fishing, picnics and long walks.
Pauline & Tony were on hand if needed and have a great knowledge of places of interest for you to visit.
We would recommend a stay at Lavender Cottage.

My partner and I have stayed at Coet Moru for 2 years in a row as we love it so much.

For winter, we wanted to getaway and relax with the option of going on walks, bike rides or visiting some local historic towns. There's a real wood burner in the living room, so evenings were spent inside relaxing by the fire. There's also a fully equipped kitchen, which meant we could go to one of the many local supermarkets and stock up on some great French produce.

The location is great - a short car journey to Jocelyn, Rohan and Vannes if you want to explore. There's also a nearby canal which makes for a great walk or bike ride - you may even see some otters there!

I can't recommend staying here enough - The cottages are modern and spacious, suitable for families and couples alike and the hosts, Pauline & Tony are really lovely and couldn't do enough to make our stay more pleasurable!

We are currently planning to visit during summer!

Lavender Cottage is beautiful, very clean and well equipped, it is set in a lovely rural location. If you want a relaxing, tranquil break then this is the ideal place. Josselin, a lovely medieval village, is close by and is well worth a visit. The owners, Pauline and Tony, are around if you need to ask anything and are very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this cottage.
