|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.
