STEPHANIE SALLOWS purchased this cottage in 1991

Why STEPHANIE SALLOWS chose Plouaret

We originally bought our cottage as a holiday home for both our family use and other guests. We chose this lovely area after spending many years running our charter boat business operating out of the Channel Islands bringing people to this beautiful coastline for sailing holidays. Now, after various building renovations over the years and retirement, we spend more time enjoying Brittany and its quieter way of life.

The cottage is set well back from the road and faces out onto a large graveled courtyard and entrance to the property, and barn which runs along the roadside. The cottage is situated on a quiet country lane with very little traffic except for the odd car and tractor and many guests enjoy walking or cycling around the lanes in the surrounding area or for the more energetic a walk into the village, about 3/4 hr. Utility Room: At the back of the house there is a small room that houses a washing machine and a large drying airer for drying clothes on those not so bright days, plus an extra fridge.

Delights of the Pink Granite Coast

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was fantastic with such a lovely sitting room and patio area.

We enjoyed the isolation from other properties and the views across the fields.

Although this was not a major drawback, it would have been nice to have a freezer in the kitchen.

The cottage was spotless and a delight to spend two weeks there.

Stephanie and Barry were great hosts and we enjoyed their company, especially on one evening when they invited us for drinks.

We would thoroughly recommend the property to anyone.

Our favorite coastal place was Ploumanach,although we also enjoyed our visits to Tregastel and Le Yaudet.

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Having visited the beautiful Granite Coast many years ago we decided to come back and wanted a cottage in a quiet retreat with facilities for a family with a small child and grandparents. The Gite was exactly that. Barry and Stephanie were there to greet us on arrival and showed us around the house. They were friendly and helpful hosts who were available for help and advice if needed.

The local beach at St Michel en Greve was excellent for small children with swings and good sand. The amazing rocks at Tregastel are one of the reasons why we wanted to return to this coast and they were just as good as we remembered. Ile Grande is also well worth a visit with a 2/3 hour lovely coastal circuit walk around it. The quiet country lanes around the house are great to explore. We can definitely recommend a visit to Convenant Morvan.

Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The description of the Gite was totally accurate. It was situated in a peaceful rural area,surrounded by farmland, within easy reach of many beautiful beaches. The interior of the house was spacious ,well furnished and very comfortable with all the expected facilities. The property was clean and well maintained, both inside and outside, the lawned area being mowed regularly. The owners could not have been more helpful, they respected our privacy but were happy to advise and assist when needed. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. We enjoyed walking ,swimming ,exploring amazing beaches and just relaxing. The garden area with comfortable sun loungers was perfect for lazy afternoons reading in the sunshine. We tended to eat out at lunchtime, much better value than evenings, and cannot recommend the local restaurant in Plouaret too highly, St Barbe food was delicious with wine and water included in a 5 course menu for 12 euros! All in all a delightful holiday.
