About Maria and Tony Conlan

We had searched for many years throughout France for a rural idyll to call home and had never quite found the right one until we visited South Brittany Cottages. We were instantly captivated by the wonderful old cottages and barns which still enchant us even now after enjoying many happy years here. We knew that it would always be a very special place to stay. Thankfully the previous owners were looking to retire and so our dreams became a reality.

Maria and Tony Conlan purchased this barn in 2004

Why Maria and Tony Conlan chose Massérac

The things we love about South Brittany Cottages are that it's a wonderful place for a rural escape and is still within very easy reach of all the beaches, swimming lakes and other attractions on offer in Southern Brittany.

The local village is only a short stroll with its boulangerie and Café Bar and the surrounding area offers picturesque countryside and is designated as a protected area of natural beauty.

What makes this barn unique

We make every effort to ensure that each cottage offers a charming home from home and that you enjoy a carefree and relaxing holiday. We live close by for all the help or advice you may need during your stay. We feel privileged to have welcomed many guests and always feel rewarded to have helped create lots of happy, holiday memories.

A superb family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

I’m not normally one to write a review but after such a wonderful holiday I feel compelled to share our experience! I currently live in France and we wanted to have a big family holiday together with our relatives from the UK and as our own house isn’t nearly big enough we decided to rent some holiday cottages together. La Cour was everything and more than we had hoped for. We stayed in Jasmine Cottage, Wisteria Barn and Woodland View Barn. Each of the properties were so very special, each has been tastefully renovated, really well-presented, very comfortable for our large group and spotlessly clean. They are all really well-equipped and offer everything needed for a family holiday, they were a perfect base for our stay. Maria and Tony have made such a good job or thinking of all the things you need. The gardens were amazing with pergolas and plenty of space for the children run around and play. The bikes were such a lovely addition, we spent a couple of days as a family on the bikes meandering around the lanes and we particularly loved the path alongside the river. The glorious weather meant lots of time at the lovely swimming lakes as well as the outdoor pools which the children loved. The area is lovely with so much to do, we did not have nearly enough time to explore everything. Thankyou Maria and Tony you were the perfect hosts, very warm and welcoming. We will certainly be back and definitely for 2 weeks next time!

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We booked a last minute holiday in Wisteria Barn this Autumn and so glad we did! The barn is beautifully presented and had everything and more we could have wished for for our stay. We loved the garden and even managed to have some evening BBQ’S with the glorious weather we had. Our children loved the bikes and used them every day riding around the quiet lanes. All in all a perfect holiday – many thanks to Tony and Maria.

Superb Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, relaxing holiday with many happy memories. Wisteria Barn was everything we hoped for for our family holiday. The barn was really comfortable, spotlessly clean, spacious, well furnished and equipped. It was perfect for our young children, there was plenty of space for them to play both indoors and outdoors in our own lovely private garden.

The location is excellent, ideal for exploring this beautiful part of France. The village is very quaint and the boulangerie was great for croissants in the morning. Our family particularly enjoyed the bicycles, we loved being able to go out as a family with our youngest on one of the child seats provided and peddle along the quiet lanes and river. Maria and Tony were excellent hosts, always on hand if we needed anything but never intrusive.

We would recommend Wisteria Barn without hesitation and are very much looking forward to returning soon.

Another great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to La Cour and this time Wisteria Barn. A beautiful, clean and comfortable cottage which is very well equipped and we would highly recommend. We love this area, so much to see and do and the cottage is in an ideal situation to reach everything. There is lots of information in the cottage with advice on best places to visit which is always a real help. We spent many wonderful evenings relaxing in the garden listening to the birds. Maria and Tony were as welcoming as ever. We will hopefully return soon!

Begin your day by taking a gentle 5-minute stroll to the friendly local boulangerie to buy your fresh bread and croissants for breakfast. The village also offers a cafe bar and a grocery shop. Another 10 minutes away are the lively towns of Redon and Guemene-Penfao where you will find supermarkets, outdoor/indoor swimming pools, canoe hire for paddling along the River Don and pony trekking. You will enjoy wandering through local markets and the ambience of historic towns and villages. The stunning beaches of South West Brittany are within easy reach or you may prefer to enjoy the many beautiful natural swimming lakes with beaches close by. For the more energetic, the area is a walking and cycling paradise, there is also plenty of opportunity to fish or play a round of golf. For families there are many fun attraction parks, animal parks and aquariums or why not plan a day out on one of the large range of bicycles from child to adult sizes which are available free of charge, there are even child bicycle trailers and child seats for any younger members of the family. The wonderful situation of La Cour allows you to easily discover many attractions or just relax and enjoy the rural tranquility.

How to get to La Cour:

We are within easy reach of the ferry ports of St Malo, Cherbourg, Caen and Roscoff (approx 1-2 hours drive). Both Nantes and Rennes are within an hour both offering flights from the UK on low cost airlines. We are able to offer 20% discount on Brittany Ferries crossings.
