About Mary Salter

While on holiday, we fell in love with the property although total renovation was needed! After having finished La Maison Blanche while still living and working in Devon, we found it more and more difficult to leave and decided to move here permanently in 2010 to renovate Hirondelle.

Mary Salter purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Mary Salter chose Lorient area

Le Cosquer is a truly rural hamlet close to the lovely Breton Village of Quistinic and the beautiful River Blavet.

The two privately owned Bretagne Gites nestling in the heart of the Blavet Valley, provide a perfect haven for guests of all ages.

Young children are welcome to visit the local farm where they can watch the farmer's wife milk the cows and meet the newly born calves.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Being truly rural Le Cosquer is a very friendly and tranquil commune with nearby beautiful woodland walks and cycle paths. The River Blavet only a 5 minute drive away is ideal for fishing, canoeing and peaceful walks along the towpath. It is also ideally located to explore the many clean & safe beaches within a 25-30m minute drive and also to visit the Golf du Morbihan where you can take a ferry trip to l'Île-aux-Moines and l'Île-d'Arz.

You can find an array of tourist attractions, shops and activities for all the family in the some of the ancient towns such as Hennebont, Vannes, Auray and Hennebont along with the nearby towns of Baud and Bubry.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were looking for a rural idyllic retreat and we found it at La Maison Blanche. Photos do not due justice to the beauty of the location. House is top quality and the hosts were extremely hospitable. With a private pool, bikes and even badminton available to us our teenagers were also very impressed. Mary is an excellent cook and we enjoyed several beautiful meals. We also appreciated Chris's lovely fresh potatoes, beans and lettuce. Memories of this wonderful holiday, made special by our wonderful hosts, will stay with us for a very long time. Would wholeheartedly recommend for anyone who enjoys peace and tranquillity in a beautifully natural setting.
