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.
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!
Beth Cook purchased this cottage in 1990
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.
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.
When I retired in 2016 I decided to treat my children, grandchildren and myself to a holiday. I chose Les Bosses near Henon, a great chose! My daughter and myself were there for 4 weeks, while the other families came for a week at a time. We reached 10 at times, the children from 3 to 16 years.
The property is delightful, such a peaceful place with neighbours who were very 'sampathique'. We cooked many meals for large groups and coped well in the kitchen.
Some days were spent on outings to St. Malo, Mont St Michel and gorgeous Dinan, but we also stayed at home very happily. All the children had a great time, playing in the garden, walking and running in the woods and lake nearby. Unfortunately there is no swimming in the lake and the nearest pool was closed for renovations. A few super playgrounds within easy driving distance. The weather wasn't great while we were there so there was only one trip to the sea( further away than we expected). The extra touches were towels supplied and very good quality bed-ware. The house is furnished with a bit of panache which made it very pleasant to spend time in.
My daughter (vegetarian) and I had a wonderful meal in nearby Moncontour at 'Le Chaudron Magique' the evening before they closed for their 2 weeks holiday! (Be aware a lot of places close for the last 2 weeks in June)
The house was in excellent condition and the grass cut while we were there. A barbecue in situ would be an advantage.
We loved this place and enjoyed our time there immensely.
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 !

Notes on prices:
Ideally we prefer to offer full weeks, but we try to be helpful where we can. However, its just not worth letting for less than the weekly rental price.
