Lovely house on the Rhuys Peninsula in South Brittany; the house is located on the ocean side and 15 minutes from the Morbihan Gulf.
Where is it?
This area is known for its' beauty as you will know if you are a fan of the French Impressionists! Artists still love to paint here- you will find their studios as you stroll the cobbled streets on your way to a romantic lunch or dinner. Find the markets in those hilltop villages that surround you, shop for local delicacies, antiques, linens, and seasonal items. Behind you are the foothills of the Alps, criss-crossed with little roads between the villages. Don't forget the camera! Grasse, the famous perfume town is on your doorstep. You can tour the factories, and even get a perfume designed especially for you! Cannes, of film festival fame, is 20 mins away. Find haute-couture along the promenade, more affordable temptation in the street behind! Monaco and its' Casino is an hour away, Italy maybe 15 mins. more. One of the most famous restaurants in France is your neighbour, La Bastide de St. Antoine- lunch is always a better deal! Cooking at home? Auchan, 10 mins away, has unrivalled fresh fish, cheeses etc and sexy designer lingerie at supermarket prices! Sounds too much like hard work? Picard, the French hostess's secret weapon, is on your street corner. It sells unbelievable 'haute-cuisine' frozen food -hors d'oeuvres to desert- it's all there. Grab a baguette from the corner bakery and a bag of mesclun from Casino (the local, very good, supermarket) and you're ready to enjoy the peace of your own French villa and your own private valley!
