Philip and I are originally Warwickshire farmers with a love of the countryside and rural life. In our mid 50's and looking for a new venture in life we were introduced to 'Gouspagne'
Our first thoughts of the ivy covered semi ruin were far from favourable, but when we saw the panoramic views over the valley and surrounding Brittany countryside we knew we had found our dream. So in May 2006 we started work restoring and renovating this ancient farm and buildings. Being a bricklayer by trade with a passion for stone work Philip was in his element. With the help of family and friends and a few "tres bons" of encouragement from the locals we created what we have today. The house and buildings have changed but the view is still as spectacular as ever, a friend once described this area as the garden of Eden, come see it for yourselves.
Has to be the panoramic view.

We arrived at this holiday cottage and were greeted by Angela who was very friendly and helpful. The cottage itself is clean and tidy, also it is well stocked with all you need for a peaceful stay. The bed is so comfortable .this cottage is great value for money. Angela and Phillip are friendly and made us feel welcome. Thank you for your hospitality. Patricia and David.
This is a tired rental that needs a bit of T L C . Not as clean a I would like,it was cleaner when I left. Now, it may lack occupancy, which might account for this lack of care and attention to detail, but, in an area where it can rain, and be cold, ( and it did, and it was), heating should be included. It remained cold for about 5 days( everything felt
Damp, including the bed. Now, as we had arrived here from Galicia
(fabulous welcome from the owner, invitation to dine with them, and amazing gift hamper)!- where we had to ask them to turn off the underfloor heating - and they included a wood burning stove with as much wood as you wanted, the change was immense!
Arrived In Cornwall, (same price for a week, amazing welcome hamper! much nicer) to another great rental where we have turned
the heating OFF!
This Brittany property need to buck up a bit or seriously reduce their prices! Best point- Really nice area!
A thoroughly pleasant experience. Warm with extremely comfortable bed.
Friendly and helpful assistance given by the owners.
