About the property

House in Treverien, Ille-et-Vilaine, France - Quiet Village Location, Close To Dinan, St. Malo & Rennes

La Forge is situated in the village of Treverien, approximately 30 miles south of St. Malo. The village is typical of the Brittany region, picturesque, scattered and incredibly peaceful. The cottage has been converted from the old forge and retains all of its old character. It rests on the banks of the Canal d'Ille-et-Rance which runs from Dinan in the North to Rennes in the South.

La Forge benefits from an enclosed courtyard to the front of the property and a summer house to the rear overlooking the Rance

About Margaret Kellow

A retired couple with a zest for life.

Margaret Kellow purchased this house in 1980

Why Margaret Kellow chose Trévérien

Our adventure began when searching for a renovation project in Brittany in the late 1980's.

Many fruitless viewings later we came across this jewel in the heart of the quiet, quaint ville of Treverien and we instantly fell in love.

On first inspection it was completely run down with no windows to the canal, a rotten spiral staircase to the chicken loft but with countless features, wonderful character and breathtaking views.

Now lovingly renovated to maintain its charming qualities it is home from home for us as we hope it will be for you.

With a sports field beyond the canal and through the weeping willows and a stones throw to the village church, shop and bar you will be at the centre of village life for your stay.

Great for get together's with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Total relaxation with the Bar opposite to meet & greet the very friendly locals

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a magical time in your house and have vowed to return again in the future. It was a perfect location for the 2 families and the mixed weather did not dampen our spirits. Buckley/Langstaff May 2013

One week is too short. What a blissful home you allow us to borrow - full of many happy vibes. A perfect spot for a family holiday and more than plenty to do. Scantlesbury family and Australian friends August 2013

A lovely well equipped and comfortable house. We enjoyed being next to the canal - both for the walks, bike rides and simply watching the boats go by.

Bettons August 2014

What a fantastic week we have had enjoyed every moment in this beautiful house. There is plenty of room inside and out and the views are stunning. Lawsons September 2014
