About the Owner

Doreen and Stewart decided to move to France when Stewart turned the magic 60. We liked the peace and quite of rural France and wanted to try a bit of the 'Good Life'

After renovations were finished on the property we opened our doors to clients in 2009. Since then we have been inviting people to share in the relaxing peace and quiet we have here.

While we have been here our 'family' has expanded and we now have a menagerie consisting of Goats, Chickens, cats and latterly Sally our collie dog.

Speaks English, French

Location

From the Owner

When we first visited the property it seemed ideal for us, offering scope for us to renovate and improve both the house and our life style. Being out in the countryside the peace and tranquillity (except in harvest time) is still a plus point when we think back to our time in the middle of Dundee and all the associated problems of inner city life. Perhaps one of the things that makes it all worthwhile is when you go out after dark in the summertime and see the vast expanse of stars.

Facilities

From the Owner

The house is in an ideal position for exploring Central Brittany. We love to cycle through the almost deserted lanes and side roads that surround us here The pace of life here is much more relaxed than in UK and life is similar in many ways to how it was there fifty years ago but with technology and a great health system. Perhaps one of the things that makes it all worthwhile is when you go out after dark in the summertime and see the vast expanse of stars.
