About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Deborah Finch

After working for ourselves for many years in the UK, we arrived in France in January 2006 with our two children for a less stressful life and a new refreshing adventure for the children. They have now finished their education and have blended well into the French culture beautifully. Our son is now a qualified electrician and our daughter has moved into retail, while we are enjoying the idyllic lifestyle that Brittany offers.

Why this location? The Farmhouse is in an ideal location, brilliant for all round access for all your needs, but, although in a tranquil country setting, it is easily accessible to medieval towns with lots to explore, walks around beautiful lakes, fantastic ports and inlets, deserted beaches and magnificent forests that go on and on. It has a very healthy climate, with plenty of clean fresh air. We love it here and hope you will too.
Unique benefits of property The stunning stone Farmhouse stands on top of a hill looking out over beautiful views to the South and the West and is unusual in the fact that all the rooms are light and airy giving you a real flavour of Brittany at its best in a peaceful location.

We loved our stay and hope to return one day. The owners Garry and Debbie were extremely welcoming, the house is clean and comfortable and well maintained.
It makes a great base to stay as there is a lot to do in the area.
