I moved to southern Brittany 2001 from the Isle of Wight, England.<br/>Chose this area for its beautiful countryside, great beaches and a more contented natural way of life, after much travelling around the globe this is where I now live!
|Year property purchased||2014|
|Why this location?||See above! The tranquility, no hassel and relatively crime free. Clean air and very little air pollution. Great outdoors. Great beaches. Nice city of Vannes.|
|Unique benefits of property||Large gardens, Peaceful. In the country but not islolated. Close to Camors (small village with 3 restaurants, Bakers, great butchers) 5 mins to the large town of Baud with many restaurants, 3 big supermarkets. 5 mins to the Camors adventure forest park. 20 mins to Auray with its quaint old port. 35 mins to Carnac with it`s heritage standing stones and really good beaches. 30 mins to Guidel Plages which is a great family sandy beach. Many nice footpaths direct from the cottage. Plenty of room in the gardens for ball games, badminton, hide and seek!|
Go cycling or hiking along the tow path in either direction, to Pontivy to the north or Hennebont to the south, restaurants/ bars in either directions. It is popular with our clients to cycle to the river in the early evening to watch the fish jump or just chill for a while. 15 mins to cycle there...we have 3 moutain bikes here.
1.5 km away is Camors adventure park. High up in the pine forest is a walkway and absailing. 3 levels easy, medium (I still do the medium at 59 years old) and the extreme (which is what is says!)
Beautiful very large sandy beach, nestled amongst sand dunes. Great family beach, good for sea fishing too. Boat hire. And great ice creams.
Heritage site of Carnac, famous for it`s many thousands of standing stones (visable from space) And it`s really great beaches. 35 mins away in the car. Good restaurants and Italian ice creams!
A perfect getaway in a quiet location. A typical Breton cottage, nothing fancy but a cosy, comfortable place to stay.
The English owner was very helpful and often around to answer any questions about the area.
Although we were only a couple it would be a good property for a family as 4 bedrooms including one downstairs with a shower.
We enjoyed visiting some of the towns and the coast, plenty to see and do.
Thank you Alison for your review.
As per your comments we have added a widescreen smart TV, and a 1 terrabite card loaded with
600 movies. You can also link up your netflix if you have an account. Also added an Xbox 3 which links up to the TV and of course the cottages internet.
Really wanted to try and stay away from modern technology to give the children (and adults!) a break from the Iphone etc., and to encourage all to take in the local walks in nature as the cottage is situated between 2 forests.
We look forward to you and your young family to visit later this summer, you must check out the Camors adventure park and the gocarting 15 mins away. A bike ride along the tow path at the River Blavet is a must.
Our Mead telescope was very popular last year, as there is very little light pollution here...spectacular views of the Moon and other planets. Our Garrett and probe metal detector also kept all ages amused for hours...only one Roman coin found..alas bigger hopes for 2018!
And finally a very big thank you for your invaluable help and advice with the gardening! Hopefully all will benefit from what has been planted....
