About the Owner

Moved to Devon 2012 from Bristol.I have taken early retirement from being a ward sister at Frenchay Hospital and Carl a landscape gardener. We have started a small business in Tavistock selling French sandals in the Pannier market and at various shows. Plymouth is the port we use travel to France and can now pop over whenever we want.I love cooking and entertain our french friends we have made over the years. Carl is in charge of the garden.We would like you to experience real France in our lovely house which we love.

We are keen walkers and cyclists and enjoy the french lifestyle. We welcome well behaved dogs

An extremely well cared for maintained property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family holiday with 15yo/14yo/8yo and everyone had a fantastic time.staying at the house and enjoying exploring the local area.

It is a very clean, comfortable, well equipped property with everything you could need both in the kitchen and throughout the house.. Really nice rooms and comfortable beds. Outside the garden is lovely with ample room for children to play football and games. Lots of excellent information re places to visit / beaches / restaurant tips etc. and a good selection of books and games in the house. The outside barn contains badminton equipment, body boards, beach umbrella and the most fantastic array of cycles for both genders and ages. We all enjoyed several bikes rides.

We would definitely return to this house as we loved it and the surrounding area. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to family and friends. The owner provided excellent communication and customer service.

A lovely tranquil location where you can totally relax.

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at this house, it has everything a family could want! The children especially enjoyed playing badminton in the garden and borrowing the body boards for our visit to the beach. The local village of Malestroit is beautiful with everything you could want for your stay. We especially enjoyed visiting the local attractions, with Rochefort en terre a favourite.

Maison Fisher review

  • 5 of 5

The house worked really well for a family of boys, who loved the pool table and the large garden. It was great that there was so much equipment to use - badminton, bodyboards and bikes. In fact we found the house was very well-equipped in general, and is in a great location for exploring both the coast and the many beautiful inland towns.

Our summer holiday

  • 4 of 5

A beautifully set property with easy access to local villages and towns. A great base for a lovely holiday. The garden was lovely with plenty of space for games, meals and sunbathing, whilst the house was comfortable, clean and contained everything an extended family needed, from bicycles to snail pins (which we did use). Local supermarkets were well stocked with lots of fresh fish and produce and the local patisserie in Serent was fantastic. The towns of Malestroit and Josselin were delightful, think Disney's Beauty and the Beast, whilst the Saturday market in Vannes is definitely worth a trip. The beach is a little far away and the stairs were very steep for my elderly parents, but these were only minor issues. Our party ranged in age from 17 to 80 and we all enjoyed our time at La Touché Morgan.

This house has character , charm , and a layer of serenity. The garden and location is an oasis of tranquility. We painted , played pool , darts quite moments when we all just read , walked through the fields , picked fresh corn, ... Sorry but could not resist . Biked in country lanes that should lined with artists painting the green and placid fields . Every thing in house was excellent . Obviously we enjoyed the whole experience , but the property is enchanting. Book it and you will not disappointed . Thank you Alison and Carl
