About the Owner
About alan and denise harber
No. 1 La Rocaille is owned by Andy, who lives in Worcestershire, Gavin, who lives in Derbyshire and Denise who lives in West Sussex. We inherited the house from our mother who loved it and really enjoyed being in Brittany. It is a holiday home for all of us and our families and we enjoy sharing it with guests. The house is a real home from home and it works well for two couples or for a family.
No. 2 Le Beau Coin is owned by Denise and Alan
We live in West Sussex and lead busy lives so getting away to Le Beau Coin to relax is wonderful. We enjoy walking, photography, painting and pottery, exploring old towns and villages, and eating out French style.
Why alan and denise harber chose Cotes d'Armor
We had looked at property in several different parts of France but this part of Brittany has so much to offer. It has stunning coastlines, picturesque scenery, and lots of historic interest. It is also near to good road, sea, air and rail transport links,
What makes this house unique
The houses have all modern comforts and conveniences in a traditional setting. La Haute Haye has the benefits of being 'away from it all' and at the same time is close to fantastic beaches, golf courses, lakes for fishing and sailing, and many places of interest. The house suits those who want to walk without having to drive anywhere because there are many footpaths and green roads close by.
