Description from owner

Description

Charming stone-built, Breton farmhouse situated in heart of beautiful, tranquil Brittany countryside. Vine-covered thick granite walls make it cool in summer, cosy in winter with its cast iron log-burning stove. The farmhouse has a large gravelled drive, ideal for long summer evenings of Boules and barbecues. The property stands in its own estate of 9 acres with lawns and drifts of summer annual flowers immediately surrounding it. Over the private lane is a meadow, which in turn leads to a woodland glade and trail down to our own private lake with rowing boat. The lake has a small jetty for diving and swimming and we regularly stock it with rainbow trout. Day tickets are available to fish the lake.

There are scores of wonderful trees for climbing and the woods near the lake offer great den-building opportunities.

We grow our own vegetables and we are always happy to share our surplus! Freshly laid eggs from our 6 hens are usually available too.

Our children have all loved learning to ride a bike here on the safe driveway and smooth tarmac lane.

Getting around

You will need your own car here, but the roads are incredibly quiet and you will rarely, if ever, be stuck in traffic!

Interaction with guest

We live on-site in a completely separate farmhouse with our family and two friendly dogs. We will usually be here ourselves to welcome guests and be on-hand to offer any assistance that may be necessary but we also completely respect our guests' privacy and will be guided by your needs. If we are away, we will leave the property in the hands of trusted managers (friends!) who will be here to welcome you and assist you. Guests are welcome to roam anywhere they please within the grounds, but the garden immediately around the gite will be entirely for your use only.

“Beautiful Stone Cottage in Brittany”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2019

Hi Wow, what a find! A beautifully decorated stone cottage in the middle of the Brittany countryside, set in wild, lush gardens with an abundance of butterfly’s - true to it’s namesake. We arrived to find freshly cut wild flowers, fresh eggs and wine. James, Roo and their children were so welcoming and were ever so respectful to give us lots of privacy but we’re super helpful if we needed anything. The house is spacious and cool with beautiful little touches everywhere. The garden and grounds were great and our little boy loved exploring and visiting the lake. He also made a friend for life with Ebony the dog who would playfully bound over now and again. We had such a great stay, hosted by such lovely people and we can’t wait to return. Thank you James and Roo!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely comments. It was a delight having you here and I think Ebony is wondering where his new friend has gone! We look forward to seeing you again next year!
