Cottage
Our comfortable self-catering vacation rental cottage is situated off a very quiet country lane between the pretty villages of Gouarec and Laniscat, right in the heart of Brittany. The Barn is a freshly renovated, traditional small Breton grange and is ideal for a family holiday. It can sleep up to 6 people in three bedrooms (two doubles and one twin-bedded room). The property features ancient oak beamed ceilings throughout and the spacious 350 square foot living area enjoys a wonderful vaulted ceiling with feature exposed A-frames and original slate window sills. Both upstairs bedrooms also feature exposed A-frames. There is a large shower room on the ground floor and a separate downstairs WC.

The fully equipped kitchen is open to the living area, so nobody feels shut away when preparing a meal! The living space is bright and airy and furnished with a large comfortable suite. There's an LED TV (with satellite channels) and a Blu-Ray player and a log-burner for those lazy evenings in. Although, you are more than likely to want to spend your evenings around the large octagonal table on your private patio enjoying the evening summer sun. The lawn and private patio area to the rear of the property is a real sun-trap and there are parasols and sun-loungers at your disposal, as well as a bistro style table and chairs and a large wooden table with bench seating for al fresco dining. Situated in over an acre of mature gardens surrounded with magnificent tall trees where you can, depending on the season, take your pick of figs, cherries, apples, pears, plums, walnuts & hazelnuts. Or simply just relax with a good book under the shade of one of the centennial oaks and listen to the birds chattering around you. We are fortunate to be surrounded by rolling green hills and quiet wooded valleys. The local area abounds with ancient monuments, old churches and historic towns and villages. This part of Brittany is a real gift for hikers and cyclists, bird watchers, anglers and nature lovers. Empty footpaths, flower-filled pastures, hidden valleys and lush woodland abound. It really is a place in which you can simply relax and breathe out. You don't need to travel for long if you are looking for things to do. The largest lake in Brittany, the Lac de Guerlédan and the Nantes-Brest Canal are both under 10 minutes away and offer family-friendly sandy beaches and a variety of water sports including kayaking, windsurfing and water-skiing. There are a variety of dining options scattered around the lake including dinner boat trips in the summer months. The picturesque Abbey of Bon Repos and the Quenecan Forest are both about 10 minutes away too. Both the south and north coasts of Brittany are within an hour’s drive thus giving you the best of all worlds. Driving in Brittany is not a problem - the roads are well-maintained and never crowded. This beautiful region has a lot to offer you and is ideal to visit from early spring to late autumn. In the winter months, the wood-burning fire provides a cosy atmosphere after a day’s outing. More
