About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Jonathan David Strutt

I have been living and working in France since I moved with my partner & 2 children then aged 5 & 6 in May 2004

Year property purchased 2002
Why this location? After spending holidays with friends who live in Brittany we decided to buy a holiday home, after 2 years of looking we had nearly given up when we found our ideal property. After spending another 2 years coming over to the property for holidays and watching "No going Back" on TV we decided to take the plunge and moved here full time.
Unique benefits of property Recently renovated cottage designed for families. The cottage is spacious and fully equipped to a high standard. Calavret is on the edge of Noyal-Pontivy so you get the peace and quiet of the rural French countryside but also the small village life only 3 kilometers away with Bars and Supermarket. There is also a Chalet that sleeps 2 adults on site which can lend itself to groups of friends who wish a property where they have their own space but at the same time are with friends. The area is beautiful with the rolling hills of Brittany and a very quiet pace of life. Being based in the center of Brittany means we are only and hour and half from the north, west and southern coasts and making it a great base to explore all of Brittany. Locally there is the Brest-Nantes Canal to explore and Lac Guerledan which has boat rides and man made beaches and much more.
