About Mrs Paula Graham / Mr Andrew Graham

We absolutely adore France especially Britanny region in particular.Our plan was to find a get away from it all location that had fantastic country views and had a real home from home appeal but not too rural that we felt too isolated.We love 'the French way' of life, the fine food, wine and totally stress free.We now spend time doing the things we really enjoy doing like entertaining people and having a good time, walking, cycling, swimming, and travelling. In particular, Paula enjoys being creative; painting and making things like cakes for all occassions and loves catering, entertaining and cooking proper home-made dishes with fresh local ingredients. Andy enjoys outdoor interests; gardening, air rifle target shooting, archery, fishing, and photography.

Mrs Paula Graham / Mr Andrew Graham purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Mrs Paula Graham / Mr Andrew Graham chose Calanhel

Having been across the channel to France many times both for work and pleasure, we found this area of France particularly charming. We love the beautiful rolling countryside and the quaint little villages with beautiful stone built churches and traditional french architecture. We have had holidays both in the North and South of France, though we are more familiar with the North and wanted to have a place in the countryside but still be close to the sea. We feel we have the best of both worlds here, the beaches are glorious and close by.

What makes this cottage unique

Set against a backdrop of beautiful woodland and rolling meadows surrounding the property, South facing garden and terrace, you can enjoy the beautiful views whilst relaxing with friends and family in the heated swimming pool and hot-tub spa. We have 10 acres of private woodland which children will love to explore. Wildlife is in abundance here with deer grazing daily close by and many other visitors including foxes, rabbits and badgers. The property is located in the heart of the countryside but just 1 mile from the bustling market town and 40 minutes from the glorious Pink Granite coast. With the pretty seaside town of Locquirec and miles of sandy beaches.Fantastic!!

Lovely welcome, a Jewell in Brittany.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely welcome from Andy and Paula with a welcome basket provided with all essentials including a couple of cold beers, which were welcome after a long drive up from the south.

The gite is well equipped, the bedrooms comfortable. The pool and hot tub are fantastic and great for children. There are numerous walks in the area.

The property is centrally located and about an hour to Brest, Quimper, Dinard and about half an hour from the coast.

Lovely setting, which is peaceful, quiet and relaxing.

We had a great holiday here and I would highly recommend.

Thank you Andy and Paula.
