About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Jacqui Alban

Jacqui, Carl and Max Alban would like to welcome you to our beautiful piece of Brittany. We have lived here since 2003 and been open since 2006. The former cotton mill had been derelict for the previous 40 years and was a huge undertaking. Our idea to convert it into 6 wheelchair accessible apartments was met with incredulation from the population, but 10 years after we opened, the village are very welcoming of our customers. We work harder than we ever have done before but life is great!
