About our home

We have lovingly restored our french house. It is set in a quiet farming village of 13 houses. Lots of cycle rides and walks. We are one hour from Saint Malo and the northern beach towns of Val Andre and Erqy and one hour from Vannes and the South coast. The area is famous for summer festivals and fetes. Our house is large with many original features. At night the sky is full of stars with no street light pollution. If you want an escape from a very busy life style to refresh the soul this is the place for you. We have games, a library of different books and a radio and music centre for entertainment plus english or French TV plus internet to keep up with friends. Last year we have had built two decks to give us great outdoor living space. Next June we are having the barn floor concreted to give us an outdoor play area with a bar, dart board and seating in what used to be the old cider making area.

Where is it?


We live in a sleepy farming community very safe for children to wander in the lanes, feed the horses or play boule or crochet. Within less than an hour by car you can visit Lamballe with its amazing outdoor market every Thursday or go to Pontivy market on a Monday or Josselin with its chateaux. Medieval towns of Dinan or Moncontour are easy to get to plus the north beaches and the vibrant towns in the south. A great base to explore Brittany from.
