About this property

Stone Cottage in ½ acre Garden with Heated Pool. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

If you are looking for an escape from a busy lifestyle then this is the place for you. Our granite 3 bedroom cottage is set in a very peaceful and quiet location in central Brittany, yet only a short drive to the canal, lakes with beaches, restaurants and shops. The cottage, thought to be approximately 250 years old has recently been renovated to provide well appointed holiday accommodation for up to 5 people in 3 bedrooms.
The 8m x 4m private pool is heated and fenced from the front garden but also has an alarm system, the swimming pool is for the sole use of guests booking the cottage The property is surrounded by fields on 3 sides.

Inside, the barn is basically open plan downstairs with a 32" lcd tv with English Freeview (and dvd player) so you will not miss your favourite programmes whilst on holiday. The kitchen/diner is extremely well equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, large fridge-freezer, microwave and coffee-maker. Upstairs the cottage has pine floors in all rooms, the master bedroom with its en suite bathroom has a King size bed with solid oak bedside cabinets, wardrobe. The second bedroom has 2 single modern beds and chest of drawers and the third bedroom has a single bed with wardrobe with drawers underneath. The family bathroom has a bath, ideal for young children. Outside there is a charcoal bbq and a set of table and chairs to enjoy al fresco dining. Many guests eat breakfast outside overlooking the pool.

This is also a great area for cycling as the roads are very quiet in this area of Brittany, and the canal towpath offers many miles of level cycling for all ages. Please feel free to bring your own bikes or alternatively they can be hired locally. Please note that the swimming pool will be open from mid May until mid September. If you wish to use the pool outside of these dates please enquire.
