About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Julie Rooke

We came to central Brittany in the year 2000, in search of a quieter life, free from stress. We have renovated Kerpoence ourselves and our home which is just a couple of kilometres away from the cottage. We are both creative people and have enjoyed bringing this little cottage back to life. It was a sad, dilapidated house when we discovered it. We enjoy meeting our guests and we're thrilled when they love this area as much as we do.

Why this location? Central Brittany and particularly the area around Lake Guerledan is stunningly beautiful. There are ancient woodlands, walks along the Nantes-Brest canal and through rugged moorland, wonderful cycle ways, this area is so unspoilt...a secret, special place. The coast is just over an hours drive away but the nearest beach is at Lake Guerledan where you can swim and partake in all of the watersports. The village of Laniscat, where our cottage is located, is small, quiet and pretty. There is a bar and a bakers, with the best croissants in the area. Our detached cottage is tucked away on a tiny lane, a peaceful location to spend a few days escaping from the busy world.

There are great markets to visit, pretty villages and towns, the coast is an easy distance can drive there and then come back to the peace and quiet of 'Kerpoence' and Laniscat. Just a five minute drive from the cottage is the town of Gouarec where there are restaurants, bars, shops and wonderful architecture.
Unique benefits of property Our detached cottage has been lovingly renovated by ourselves and we adore 'Kerpoence'! Cottages just for two are SO rare...they are often in a complex with other gites or they are tacked on to the end of the owners property. 'Kerpoence' is a special little place, a real 'home from home'. We think we have provided everything a couple might need to spend a carefree relaxing time away from a busy, exhausting world. We have created a comfortable and cosy, light filled environment, a cottage that can be enjoyed through out the year. Outside there is a very private, pretty garden and decked terrace, many couples enjoy the cottage and garden so much that they don't venture far.

Just a small stroll from the cottage is the bakers/grocery shop and also the village bar. We also provide two bikes so that our guests at Kerpoence can enjoy the myriad cycle ways close to Laniscat.
Many couples return to our cottage again and again, they say it is a 'little gem' and the 'perfect place to relax

The Owner Recommends

Lake Guerledan

A huge lake surrounded by woodland. Great for the beaches, swimming, watersports, rambling and cycle ways.

Bon Repos Abbey

A beautifully renovated abbey, situated on the banks of the Nantes-Brest canal.
Each Sunday there is a great market and each summer a spectacular 'Son et Lumiere'.

Weekly markets in many pretty towns and villages

Lovely local produce for creating your own tasty meals and picnics.

Cycle ways

Brittany has created some wonderful cycle ways, along the Nantes - Brest canal and along the old railway lines.

The coast

We are in the very middle of Brittany and therefore each coast is an easy distance away.

Music festivals

Brittany is famous for its music festivals and there are many taking place throughout the summer months.

Brocante fairs and antique shops

There are lots of brocante fairs throughout the year. We think it's great to search out bargains and find something unusual and different.


Gouarec, our nearest town, has an ancient centre to it and a beautifully renovated market hall. It is a very pretty town situated on the Nantes-Brest canal. Here you can start a walk along the canal, eat in one of the restaurants or while away the time over a coffee in one of the little bars.

The Neolithic standing stones on the Liscuis moorland

Just a couple of kilometres from Laniscat is the Liscuis moorland, a rugged and beautiful landscape with stunning views over the valley. Here there are ancient burial chambers dating back to Neolithic times.


A small but beautiful town with a medieval centre and individual and interesting little shops.

Kerpoence was a beautiful wee cottage full of character. We had an amazing week there and couldn’t have asked for a better location. The cottage was very clean and had everything we could have needed. It’s a perfect home from home and Jez and Julie are very welcoming. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway in the French countryside.
