Myself and my partner are English, but have spent the last 18 yrs working in the tourism industry. We have worked and travelled extensively throughout France and have a great appreciation of the country, its people and culture. <br/>Of all the regions of this diverse country we have found Brittany to have the most welcoming people, the richest culture and the best sea food! <br/>We would love to welcome you here to experience this most beautiful, tranquil and friendly area of France.
|Year property purchased||2005|
|Why this location?||Located just withing Morbihan, on the border of Finistere and Cote d'amour departments, right in the centre of Brittany, the cottage is ideally situated for exploration of this wonderful peninsular of France. The bonus of being slightly inland, is although the fabulous beaches and coastline is easily accessible, we are not affected by the fluxes of the tourist seasons, with the gentle rythme of the true Breton way of life undisturbed - on our doorstep. Our nearest village Langonnet, is the centre of the Breton language, proudly upholding its its history and culture.
Throughout the year there are a variety of traditional Festivals held locally, such as the Fete de La Crepe in Gourin, the Fete de Brodeuse in Pont L'Abbe, regular Pardons (parade ceremonies) of the local churches, plus the internationally acclaimed Lorient Interceltic Festival and the Vielle Charrues music festival - France's answer to Glastonbury!
|Unique benefits of property||Surrounded by rolling countryside and set in 2 acres of gardens it is peaceful and calm. Along with enjoying the tranquillity of the gardens, or maybe a game of Boules (or Petanque), a swim during the summer months or perhaps taking a gentle stroll in the surrounding countryside with walks on the doorstep, we also have the Games room with a Darts board and Table tennis table|
Fascinating situation with the Church clinging to the steep valley side, with flying butresses, an interesting array of gargoyles, Rood screen and large Bell to be rung to ward off any storms! There is a Cafe with a lovely outdoor seating area over looking the valley, plus marked walking circuits with easy to follow markings leading down to the beautiful Elle river.
A lovely lake with a man-made beach, picnic tables and childrens play area. There is a well surfaced, walking path, skirting the water - a gentle stroll will take about 30 mins. There is also fresh water fishing here.

Really can’t rate this property highly enough! Comfortable, well-equipped, clean and a real home from home even having UK satellite TV. Absolutely stunning location, very peaceful, in open countryside and with fabulous views. The gardens are vast with plenty of varied places to sit and sunbathe or relax as well as splash pool, boules pit and games room. Easy access to the north and south coasts and beautiful walking territory. Our dog loved it as much as we did, life with no leash :-) Really friendly hosts next door if needed. If you love Brittany I guarantee you will not be disappointed with Mimosa Lodge.
