Country Cottage In Perfect Rural Hamlet (Easy Drive To Beaches)



Updated: 16-Nov-2016
Cottage nr Moncontour, Cotes D'Armor, Brittany, France - Peaceful Location, Ideal For Families Or Groups Of Walkers Or Cyclists

Les Bosses is a traditional stone build Breton farming hamlet with just four houses and wonderful neighbours. Set in the beautiful Cotes-des-Halles valley, the landscape is unspoilt, made up of irregular fields, woods full of wild flowers and trout streams. 10 minutes walk through the woods brings you to a lovely clear lake, ideal for fishing & picnics. The Baie de Saint Brieuc offers many different sandy beaches from isolated and empty ones, reached down steep cliff paths, to family beaches with ice creams and fairground rides. The walks along the coast are breathtakingly beautiful with many tiny islands and fresh mussels to pick off the rocks. The nearest beaches are 15 miles away.

About the Owner


I am the owner of Old Glebe and Les Bosses. I live and work in London but plan to spend my retirement in the countryside, hence having these two lovely houses which I dont have enough time to enjoy.

My houses are personal properties and are very different. Les Bosses, is a charming simple cottage set in very peaceful rural Brittany. Old Glebe is perfect for large family parties and only an hour from London.

I hope you enjoy your holiday, I am always very happy in both places and delighted to share them with you!

Beautiful rural spot. Glorious beach 1hr

  • 5 of 5

The house and garden are perfect for a young family, with a games cupboard, lots of beds and cots, walled garden and patio, table tennis and slide/swing set.

The beaches up towards cap d'frehel had rock pools, waves for bodyboarding and sand for making castles.

Nearby Moncontour has a medieval festival which was a real experience!

The owner was very helpful.

Que de beaux souvenirs pour nous que cette semaine en famille à Hénon !

Un cadre rural extrêmement paisible, une demeure à la fois authentique et à la décor moderne très travaillée, un accès somme toute rapide ( 15 à 20 min ) à toutes les commodités : bref, un petit havre de paix, hors du flux du quotidien, dans lequel se ressourcer semble être le leitmotiv.

Balades dans la campagne bretonne, soirée aux coins du feu, déconnectez vos portables et évadez vous !

Nous y reviendrons avec plaisir !!!

Merci encore à Beth et Laura !

From the Owner

I bought Les Bosses a long time ago when I was working in Brittany. I love rural France and the fact it is a short drive to the most stunning white sandy beaches. Getting there is so easy from St Malo or Roscoff via Brittany Ferries, or a 6 hours drive from the Channel tunnel.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Dinard at 80 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Henon at 3 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Saint Malo Brittany Ferries at 100 Kilometres Nearest Train : Saint Brieuc at 30 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Ploeuc sur Lie at 5 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Baie de Saint Brieuc at 30 Kilometres

Special interest holidays:

The local villages of Henon and Ploeuc-sur-Lié have all the necessary amenities, from tennis courts to supermarkets, and are just 2 miles away. The stunning mediaeval hill fortress town of Moncontour is 7 miles away and provides an ideal place to eat out or sit in the 10th century church square watching the world go by. It is remarkably UN-touristy.

Medieval Festivals are ubiquitous and well worth the effort.


Nearest beaches are about 30 - 45 minutes away but there are also lakes nearby with sandy beach areas.


Saint Malo or Roscoff with Brittany Ferries are the best way to arrive. Leaving we suggest you take a day sailing from Caen - which means you get back to UK around lunchtime. Its an early start but worth it the other end.


Nearest little village for your morning croissant and baguette - 2 miles.

Nearest market town (market day Wednesday) - 3 miles.

Lovely walled Medieval citadel for suppers in the square - 6 miles.

City with all the shops you need - 16 miles.

Further Details:

This is a family home not a business. You are welcome to borrow toys and other items such as fancy dress for the local Medieval Festivals (there are plenty). We are not precious but if you break something please replace it.

Tennis in Ploeuc, Water Skiing at Guerledan, Sailing at Pleneuf - all easy to reach.

From the Owner

Too many to list - but the main thing about Les Bosses is the fact that this area of Brittany is totally unspoilt, there are incredibly clear skies on a clear night and you can walk in any direction along pretty lanes. Within 90 minutes drive you can reach most of Brittany's main sites if you want to travel or you can spend a week sitting on the terrace enjoying the rural peace and quiet.
