Overview

About the property

House in Josselin, Morbihan, Brittany, France - Holiday Cottage In Safe Rural Hamlet. 8 Kilometres From Josselin

'Teag Beag' in the hamlet of Goué, nestled beside the Foret de Lanouée, is a deceptively spacious stone house on three levels which has been fully renovated to modern standards, whilst retaining all of it’s traditional attractive features including oak beams throughout. It is located just 7 minutes drive from the medieval town of Josselin, with all it’s tourist attractions; famous Chateau de Rohan, 17th Century half-timbered buildings, bars, shops and restaurants. There is also a lively Saturday street market. It is just 12 minutes drive to the larger town of Ploermel, which has many shopping amenities to cater for most tastes. A mobile boulangerie calls to the hamlet twice a week and the nearest local boulangerie is just 3km. Situated between Goué and Ploermel is Lac au Duc, a lake with man-made beach, café, water-sports centre and nine hole golf-course nearby. The area is great for exploring by car, on foot or by bicycle. Superb beaches can be found all along the Morbihan coast.

About M. et Mme. O'Brien

M. et Mme. O'Brien and 4 children moved to France in 2006. We live permanently in the village of Goue and our children are bi-lingual in French and English. We love the rural lifestyle and every day appreciate the tranquility and beauty of the area and feel very lucky to be able to raise a family in such a safe and friendly environment. We appreciate the freedom we have gained to grow our own fruit and vegetables and raise our own animals. We have integrated completely with our French neighbours but have not lost touch with our roots. We have enjoyed renovating 'Teag Beag' and hopefully this is reflected in its style and quality.

M. et Mme. O'Brien purchased this house in 2005

Why M. et Mme. O'Brien chose La Grée-Saint-Laurent

We bought our properties in this village because of the tranquility, friendliness and security we instantly felt when we first arrived.

What makes this house unique

'Teag Beag' is conveniently located for the historic town of Josselin, commercial centre of Ploermel and the larger cities of Vannes, Rennes and Lorient. The nearest Boulangerie is just 3km. A mobile boulangerie visits the village every Tuesday and Friday. A mobile charcuterie visits the village every week.

Lovely place of space and peace

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four so this holiday gite was very spacious, with plenty of room for privacy as well as family time together. The house is gorgeous stone, old-style French with all amenities, situated in a tiny little hamlet, where you have the opportunity to get to know deeply the real sense of the place. It's also very convenient to the old historic city of Josselin with supermarkets and all you need nearby. Less than an hour takes you to the lovely sandy beaches of the Morbihan south coast, where the sea is lovely for a swim and the food is great. Being in central Brittany, it's also easy to visit cities like Vannes, Rennes and also the forests of Paimpont and Huelgoat. We had a lovely time and the owners were on site if you needed anything. Our favourite was their family dog, Corino, who welcomed us home each day - and that will stay in our hearts...

Thanks for a great holiday!

A great holiday home

  • 4 of 5

As a family of 6, plus a dog, we needed a good-sized holiday home and this home was nearly perfect for us. It has been recently fully renovated to a very good standard with several bedrooms, bathrooms, a relaxing lounge and a great modern kitchen that includes a ten-seater table.

The location is beautiful with good walks nearby and easy access by car to the main tourist spots of Vannes, St. Malo, Mont-San-Michel, Rochefort, etc.South coast is 45-60 mins by car, north coast more like 60-75 mins. There are also good supermarkets and petrol stations in Josselin (5 mins by car) and Ploermel (15 mins).

Owners Franc and Wendy were very welcoming.

Highly recommended.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say! We had a wonderful holiday in France. We stayed in Wendy & Francs wonderfully restored 3 story home. To say it is beautiful is an understatement, this has been an awful lot of work for them both but wow what an achievement. The area is lovely, very tranquil and beautiful. The medieval town of Josslin is only a few miles away and a trip to Carnan and Mont St Michel is a nice day out. Wendy & Franc were wonderful hosts and we would highly recommend you go and spend some time with them. Happy Days!

Teag Beag

  • 5 of 5

This pretty looking gite is beautifully restored in every way and equipped with everything you need to have a truly comfortable stay. It is large and spacious with all modern conveniences and everywhere is so clean. Wendy and Franc are on hand to help you with anything you might want and are so hospitable. The courtyard at the back of the house accommodates a large table and chairs and is ideal for lazing around or eating outside. The gite is in a very small but friendly hamlet and nestles in the wonderful French countryside which appears to be mainly agricultural. There are marvellous walks to be had through country lanes and forests. It is not far from all amenities in the medieval town of Josselin which is a wonderful place to visit. You do need a vehicle as it is very rural.

A fabulous stay, probably the best! Thank you.
