BONJOUR! we are your hosts, frances & jan. 

We are Frances and Jan. In April 2016 we bought this fantastic cottage in Brittany along with the 5-acre lake full of fish 10 metres from the front door. There are also extensive landscaped grounds and gardens for you to enjoy. 

Two bedrooms with a shared bathroom are located on the first floor. Both bedrooms have lake views.

The master bedroom, bedroom 3, has ensuite facilities. It is located on the ground floor, and has superb lake views

Le Cottage is ideally situated in a tranquil rural environment, but close to many local attractions, Breton towns and villages, as well as coastal Brittany and Normandy. The French channel ports of St. Malo. Cherbourg, Caen and Le Havre are only 2/3 hours’ drive away, mainly autoroute/dual carriageway.

Review from Holiday France Direct

A beautiful setting. Being an avid angler, being beside such a tranquil lake and having the chance to fish it was a huge bonus. The cottage was in pristine condition and spotlessly clean. Amenities were sufficient for our needs, several supermarkets within easy reach and a lovely bakery down the road for those essential pastries in the morning.
A true paradise for the wife and I.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this cottage for other like minded folk. 
It was simple to book, cost effective and there were nothing that wasn’t in the overview of the place that left us unhappy.
I’m already looking for similar properties for spring next year.

Review from Holiday France Direct

What a lovey property in a gorgeous location. The setting is spectacular and the area is quiet yet the kind owners are nearby if required. The facilities in the cottage are of a high standard and we had a great welcome with a few necessities to get us started. The locality is rural so local amenities are limited but we were not looking for night life and there is plenty of interesting places to visit by car. The local famers’ market is a must as are the famous castles and seaside resorts.
We will be back and have no hesitation in recommending this property to couples, families or groups.
