About the Owner
Before moving to France my husband Mauro and I ran a language school in Cheltenham teaching English to foreign students and foreign languages to English students. It was our own business and I was responsible for the teaching and teachers and Mauro was in charge of marketing and admin. After almost 10 years and two small children later we decided it was time for a change. We loved France, had a small holiday home near to Dinard and so we decided to start our new adventure in France before the kids were of school age. We sold up in 2001 and moved to France. In 2003 we finally found the dream home and business all in one! - Manoir Le Cosquer. I'm still teaching English as well as looking after our guests. My husband helps out and also manages a ski chalet & riverside cottage.

Lovely week exploring the local towns and coastline - don't miss out on Tregastel, Ploumanach and Paimpol. Had "moules frites" a the Crapaud Rouge on top of the cliffs at St Quai Portrieux - delicious and must end with waffles with nutella! The Jones family
From the Owner
“In 2003 we bought Manoir Le Cosquer and it was love at first sight! Simply driving down the private avenue lined with oak and chestnut trees then arriving to see the most charming 15th century French manoir was simply too much to resist! We live on site with our two daughters who attend a local school and are bilingual! We love the French way of life, walking to the bakery in the morning for our fresh baguette, enjoying the quiet roads and small local fishing ports, coastal walks, sandy beaches and, of course, the leisurely lunches with fine French wine and cheese! The great benefit is its location because in about 15 minutes you can be visiting some of the most spectacular coastline in Brittany. Lots of rock pools, sandy uncrowded beaches, sailing, & small fishing ports.”

From the Owner
“Manoir Le Cosquer is surrounded by gardens and copses and then fields beyond so you really are private. But the real convenience of the manoir is that it is in the village and you can walk down the private avenue to the bakery, corner shop, post office, bar/tabac and yet you return to complete privacy. There are no neighbours or houses looking over the property - the closest building is probably 300 metres away! There is also a doctor's surgery in the village which is very comforting if you should feel ill and is particularly reassuring if you are travelling with small children or elderly parents. 7 acres of peace & quiet: great lake & wildlife, gym/games room, indoor table-tennis, boules, badminton, children's play area -swings, slide, & Wendy house.”
