“Loved our visit to Brittany! Brenda’s farmhouse was perfect for our stay! We spent most of our time relaxing on the nearby beaches after a 4 week tour of France so it was very welcome! Totally relaxed when were back home in the evening. Beautiful countryside! We even had a surprise visit from the neighbors who brought us a full 3 course meal!! We didn’t speak French & they didn’t speak English but it did not matter at all, we laughed & hugged & fully understood each other! A lovely gesture indeed! ”
“Brenda’s place is the antidote to city life BUT a 40-50 min drive takes you to a whole range of attractions and beaches, some being very much closer. For our 3 year old grandson the garden and play barn were heaven, the latter a real bonus in wet weather. The house is very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. We really enjoyed our 5 days relaxing there with visits to Josselin and Lizio being the best of the days out.”
“This is a great place to stay for a taste of rural Brittany. It’s a large, comfortable place with a big garden to relax in and catch the sun. Brenda and Bernard are really friendly and helpful owners who go out of their way to look after you.”
“We had a lovely stay at this beautiful French country haven. We would love stay again if in that part of France. ”
“We had a lovely time at Brenda and Bernard's property in Laurenan. The property is located deep in the French country side although very accessible to many famous and interesting tourist spots. The house is typical of the region, and has all the quirks you would expect of an old stone house. It is set amongst surrounding farms but in a charming hamlet with a beautiful church a very good Boulangerie and a cafe ( although this wasn't open when we were there) the surrounding villages provide markets and supermarkets and everything else you need. Brenda had arranged for some staples for when we arrived as well as her gorgeous French neighbours who met us and showed us through the house. Our hosts had also left some really detailed lists and maps of things to do and see which we followed religiously and had a great time in doing so. This location is perfect for someone wanting to desire, to de-stress from city life as well as immerse yourself in the French countryside. It was a great experience! ”
“Brenda was wonderful at communicating and suggesting places for us to visit. There was plenty of information at the house about things to do and places to go. The house is brilliantly located in central Brittany so its easy to get to the north coast and the south cost. We were made to feel very welcome and had a fabulous chilled 5 days in the peaceful countryside.”
“Thanks Brenda for staying with us. You were a pleasure to host.”
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.
