The accommodation has a beautiful walled garden with timber decking allowing guests to enjoy the long warm summer evenings for alfresco dining.
Our cottage comprises two bedrooms, two bathrooms, large galleried sitting room, dining room and separate kitchen.
A rural hideaway in France. What could be better than enjoying the best life can offer in a peaceful haven?
The bright and spacious sitting room is furnished with two chesterfield sofas, antique leather side chairs and coffee table.
Adjoining the sitting room is the dining area which looks out to the rear garden through the french double doors opening onto a decked area. A Chinese cabinet contains satellite tv, hifi, dvd and video.
The kitchen is situated off the dining area and is completely fitted with solid wood units and beech worktop. It is fully equipped with all new modern conveniences. French doors lead onto the decked area in the garden.
Just off the sitting room, the ground floor bathroom is modern and spacious.
The bathroom upstairs is modern and has a large shower enclosure and heated towel rail. Bath towels are provided.
Stairs from the sitting room lead up to a carpeted galleried area with the master bedroom to the left. This is tastefully furnished with a large carved oak traditional Breton bed, two bedside cabinets with tiffany lamps, a chest of drawers and wardrobe.
The second bedroom is on the ground floor, and is beautifully furnished with a queensized brass bed, two bedside cabinets and antique chest of drawers.
The walled garden is laid mainly to lawn with fruit trees, shrubs and fragrant plants and the decked area can be used for sunbathing and entertaining, being illuminated at night.
The cottage is centrally heated and also benefits from a wood burner.
The accommodation we offer is also our home and therefore we have tried to equip and furnish it to a high standard that we ourselves would expect.
Our cottage has modern conveniences and is situated within easy reach of international airports that can take full advantage of low cost and regional air travel and also local ferry ports.
Our cottage is in the heart of the Breton countryside in a small hamlet just a short distance from the village of Melrand. Although we offer a peaceful holiday, we are just 14km from the busy medieval towns of Baud and Pontivy and the beautiful beaches of the Gulf of Morbihan are only 35 minutes away.
You will have a choice of visiting the long sandy stretches of Carnac beach or the small coves of Locmariaquer and Le Men Du or even going further afield to one of the many islands. For those of you who prefer a change from the beach, the nearby lac du Guerledan and the Blavet river offer beautiful walks and cycling along the towpaths. Nearby, for the more active among you, there is kayaking, horseriding and golf.
There are many local French restaurants, creperies and bars along the river at St Nicholas des Eaux or the nearby village of Melrand. Further afield, the lovely towns of Baud and Pontivy offer a selection of dining experiences.
