About our home

Ancient 2 storey typical Brittany house near Carhaix Plougher in a peaceful environment, very cosy and comfortable, completely renewed two years ago, so that all is brand new and in a country stile. It has 2 double bedrooms, a kitchen, a dinning room with a fireplace, a living room with a comfortable sofa-bed for 2 people, a bathroom and a toilet. Outside there is also a garden (but not very well kept, I must confess, as we do not live in Brittany; however, our kids are happy to have a place to be outside the house), and a park-place for you to park your car. Ideally located both for lovers of open air activities such walking, hiking,cycling, golf, horse-riding, etc. and for people wishing to visit all what Brittany has to offer in terms of tourism, nature and culture. There is a golf club at 4 km. from our home.

Our home is in a quite small community, in the otuskirts of Treffrin, but very close to Carhaix Plougher, the biggest city in central Brittany. This ensures you will have all the services you need, from doctors to big supermarkets, cinema, golf, tennis, horse riding, swimming-pool, wellness centre, and also the canal Nantes Brest is at a short distance, so you can hire a boat or walk along the canal. Very nice landscapes and country forests ideally for the lovers of hiking and mountain bike tours.

At the same time, it has a privileged position as a base to visit all Brittany in daily trips, which allows you to choose each day a different beach to go to, and many cultural and touristic visits to very nice natural and historical places like: Quimper, Concarneau, Locronan, la Pointe du Raz, Crozon, Brest, the granit coast in the north, Morlaix, Saint Brieuc, Paimpol, Lorient and it's Celtic festival and, a bit further you may go to Vannes, Quiberon and even Rennes, Saint Malo and Dinan. The furthest place is Nantes, at around 2h and a half. So you won't find a best location if you intend to visit Brittany extensively.

It's necessary to have a car in order to enjoy your holidays in Brittany, as public transport in all the region is poor and most places badly linked.

We are four, 2 kids aged 13 and 11 and 2 adults, Vicent and Imma. Vicent teaches German in a public languages school and Imma works as a psychologist in the educational field. Both of us also work part time at the University, in postgraduates courses.
As we have the same holiday periods than the kids, and as we love very much travelling, we go often on holidays and we exchange our home more than once a year. We live near Barcelona, in Spain, and own a second home in Torredembarra, a very lovely place in between Barcelona and Tarragona and next to the beach. Two years ago we bought that second home in Brittany, as it's a few years we fell in love with the beauty of the region and decided to have our place here for the holidays. So we have two second homes we can offer you and you can use one or the other or decide to split your holidays in between both of them.

We both speak English, French, Spanish, Catalan, I also speak Italian and Vicent speaks German too, so feel free to contact us in any of those languages to illopart@xtec.cat.
