About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Wendy Davey

We moved to Brittany in September 2016 after a 30 year teaching career in England. We decided on a change of life and fell in love with peaceful, historic, beautiful Brittany. We have 2 daughters Emily who is a Primary School Teacher in Kent and Georgia who is studying Photography at Kingston University. We have two dogs and a cat!

Year property purchased 2016
Why this location? Maël-Carhaix, is located in the heart of Central Brittany in the south west corner of Côtes D'Armor and borders with Finistère département. This small village has many assets, notably the wonderful site of the Etang des Sources, which is located 1km from La Roscoat. The 'Water Gardens' as it is also known, has a small man made beach and play park, toilets and a café which operates in the summer months. The lake is well stocked with coarse fish and is ideal for the fishers amongst you. Around the lake is a network of paths ideal for hiking. Paths are suitable for wheelchair use. Away from the water gardens there are many signposted paths including the Greenway, through the green, rolling Breton countryside where you will be able to experience the season's agricultural activities for yourself.
The village centre is dominated by the 12th century church and a recently restored Mairie which provides services for the 1600 inhabitants.
Unique benefits of property We offer a warm welcome, with fully-equipped gites that require you only to bring your suitcases, personal effects and yourselves to enjoy either a relaxing romantic break or an action packed holiday. The experience that we have carefully created will enable you to truly enjoy your well deserved holiday in this beautiful part of the world, whether you choose to spend most of your time at La Roscoat, enjoying the marvellous countryside that surrounds the complex or whether you choose to use it as a base to strike out and explore the myriad of activities and sights that this magical county is able to provide the visitor.

Each gite has its own exclusive seating and eating area complete with barbeque and residents can also enjoy access to the grassed paddock at the rear of the property suitable for playing garden games, petanque or simply reading under the shade of the red oak trees.

This takes place each year in July 8kms from Mael-Carhaix, Finistère.

Josselin is situated in the departement of Morbihan.

Attractive old town, with a magnificent chateau, with gardens and a doll museum.

Pretty Gite set in very rural part of Brittany. Ideal for a tranquil holiday to get away from the hassle and bustle of a busy life.
The English owners, who live on site, are delightful and very helpful and always willing to offer tips and advice about where to go and what to see, if needed.
Would happily recommend to friends.
