About the property

House in Callac, Nr. Guingamp, Cotes d'Armor, Brittany, France - Peaceful Location, In The Heart Of The Stunning Brittany Countryside

The property is to be found down a quiet country lane. It is surrounded by a large garden which backs on to open countryside. The ground floor has an open plan layout with lounge area with exposed stone feature wall and wood burning stove and fitted kitchen/dining area. On the upper floor there are 2 large bedrooms and a small single room all of which offer views out over the garden and surrounding countryside. The local area boasts many historical towns and cities, the closest being Guingamp, Morlaix and Carhaix Plouguer. Callac is the nearest town to the property (15 minute drive), which has all the amenities needed eg supermarkets, restaurants, doctors, vets. The North Brittany coast is a 30 minutes drive and boasts many picturesque beaches and coves, it is slightly further to the south and west coast beaches but they are well worth a visit. The roads are quiet and ideal for cycling, there is a large network of both road and mountain bike rides/trails in the area. There are also lots of well signed walks locally.

bucolic retreat with all cotes d'armor in reach

  • 5 of 5

Great place; we stayed for a week as a family with a young child for hoiday. Great beaches at Tragastel (super dali-esque pink granite rocks); and Plestin le Greves (sand yachts and boutiques - good shoes and clothes); zoo at Tregomeur interesting collection focused on SE Asia inc funky gibbons; Gaulish village still holding out against the Romans near the Radar Dome; Morlaix and Dinan mediaeval. Or just stay at home, chill on the deck or have a bbq in the meadow. Would be a good retreat for a writer. For provisioning all you need in Callac 20mins away. Extremely relaxing and very good value.

Hidden Valley

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I together with our handicapped daughter have had a wonderful week at Magoarou. The hidden valley, full of delights, peace and quiet. At night the most fabulous starry sky. Hidden away but close enough to go on adventures, visiting historic cities and towns and the sea side.

A warm welcome from Jules and Sharon in the dead of night set the holiday on the perfect positive note. No chance of downhill after that. Very nicely appointed, nature on the door step. Very noisy woodpeckers however!!

A very peaceful and relaxing holiday. The patisserie in Callac has items of food to lust after. Overall we all enjoyed the holiday break and Magoarou in particular.

Thanks and see you again soon.

1st visit so good we came back again!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our 2nd stay at Magoarou and highly recommend this lovely cottage for a relaxing, peaceful holiday. We (myself, my husband and 2 teenage children) first visited for 2 weeks last summer and all agreed it was the most relaxing holiday we had had for a very long time. When trying to decide on a location for our holiday this year we all kept remembering how relaxing it was last time and unanimously decided a second visit was on the agenda. The house itself is well equipped and very comfortable, the location is peaceful yet close to all necessary amenities. We were delighted to be able to use the newly finished BBQ area which is a lovely addition. Sharon and Jules are always happy to give recommendations for places to visit which is very helpful. We ventured to many places and highly recommend Lac de Guerledan for water based activities (at a very reasonable price). All in all another excellent holiday we didn't want to end!!

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a lovely 2 week stay at Magoarou. The accommodation was nicely laid out and clean and tidy. It was very comfortable for the 5 of us. The garden was well kept and meant you didn't have to go far to spot the local wildlife (bats, buzzards, owls, foxes etc.).

The owners live next door and were really helpful and friendly. We particularly appreciated their flexibility, allowing us to stay an extra night at the end.

It was nicely located for visiting lots of different bits of the local area, with the Northern coast about 1 hour away with plenty of stunning beaches. It was easy to get to all the major towns like Guingamp, Morlaix, Brest and Lannion.

We'd highly recommend staying here and hope to be able to visit again soon.
