About the property

House in Gouarec, Cotes D'Armor, Brittany, France

Our four double bedroomed house is based in the centre of Gouarec opposite a pizzeria, and a two minute walk from the canal, which has a well maintained tow-path for walking and cycling, and also a launch ramp for the canoes. Just a 20 minute cycle ride away is Bon Repos Abbey which has a Sunday market and a bar/cafe, fantastic for eating al fresco. The village has a few bakeries, a supermarket and a selection of bars. A swimming pool is available just a 5 minute walk from the house. Upon entry to the house, the hallway stores 4 adult bicycles, and to the left is a downstairs shower room and toilet. The ground floor has a large lounge with ample seating (a pull-out single bed could be moved to the lounge). There is also a large dining table which seats six. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms over two floors. In the courtyard there is a patio table/chairs and a gas BBQ and the canoes.

About Glyn & Kathy Tilbury

Family of five who first visited Gouarec 16 years ago. Fell in love with the village, so when an opportunity arrived to purchase a house there we done so without hesitation. We have had many lovely holidays and have enjoyed exploring the area.

Glyn & Kathy Tilbury purchased this house in 2003

Why Glyn & Kathy Tilbury chose Callac area

We bought a property in this location as it is a very quiet and peaceful village. With the canal only a short walk away it was perfect for walking, cycling and canoeing which the whole family enjoy. Only a ten minute drive away is lac de guerledan where we spend a lot of time on the beach as it is safe for children with a designated swimming area. You can rent out fishing boats and pedal boats and they also do water skiing lessons. There is also a indoor swimming pool which is a 5 minute walk away. It is an easy 1 and a half hour drive from St Malo, which rarely sees traffic, always hassle free.

What makes this house unique

Close to everything; bakery, supermarket, hairdressers, pizzeria, bars, swimming pool, canal for fishing and canoeing. Two families can stay with plenty of room and still have privacy. The house is right in the middle of the village.

Location

From the Owner

We bought a property in this location as it is a very quiet and peaceful village. With the canal only a short walk away it was perfect for walking, cycling and canoeing which the whole family enjoy. Only a ten minute drive away is lac de guerledan where we spend a lot of time on the beach as it is safe for children with a designated swimming area.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Dinard at 76 Miles Nearest Ferry : St Malo at 83 Miles

Coast/Beach:

Lac de Guerledan is 10 minute drive where there are three sandy beaches, water skiing, pedalos, fishing, swimming, restaurants etc.

Swimming pool is 5 mins walk away.

Walking down the canal and choosing a nice place to sit and have a picnic is lovely.

Travel:

The port of St Malo is no more than 1 hour 45 mins away with the airport of Dinard and Brest only 1 hour 30 mins. Ryanair fly every day from Stansted and East Midlands to Dinard. With economy flights, this adds another option to perhaps fly and then hire a car.

Distances:

An easy 20 minute bike ride will bring you to the Bon Repos Abbey on the Nante-Brest canal. There is a bar/cafe here. They also have a Sunday market where you can buy food and crafts.

Further Details:

Good for those who prefer a more active type of holiday break - canoeing, water skiing, walking, cycling, fishing etc.
