About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Tracey McMurray

I am originally from Jersey in the Channel Islands, and have often visited France for my holidays. I love the laidback slower pace of life that Brittany has to offer. I fell in love with Coat Ar Roux last summer while over on holiday and decided it was the perfect, peaceful setting with 8 acres of land to walk my two beautiful rescue dogs. As my children were off to university, I sold my house in Jersey and bought Coat Ar Roux as an established Gite complex, with a little cottage for myself.

Year property purchased 2017
Why this location? Beautiful peaceful location, and only 20 mins to the coast plenty of land to walk dogs.
Unique benefits of property Benefits being only 5 mins from N12 motorway stretching from the east to western France. Close to ferry ports of Roscoff and St Malo and Brest airport.

Off the beaten track but certainly not isolated. Beautiful lake just 5mins away, and petit cite of character Guerlesquin is 7mins away by car. Plestin les Greves and pink granite coast approx 20 and 30 mins by car. There is even a zoo - Zoo Parc de Tregomeur is only a 50 min drive along the N12 motorway and also not too far from the coast of St. Brieuc

This Yearly music festival takes place in Carhaix, 40 minutedrive from Coat Ar Roux. Runs from 19-22nd July. Why not use Coat Ar Roux as "Base Camp" for your stay in Brittany. Many people bring along a tent to sleep over at the festival and make their way back to "Base Camp" to eat, shower, sleep little more before going back to the festival. Oh Happy Days!!!


Valley of the saints
