A warm sunny courtyard is the perfect setting for morning coffee, lunchtime aperitif, or evening BBQ - a tranquil haven where you are totally surrounded by nature.

The interior has been designed to a high standard with our guest's comfort in mind - thick stone walls,logs fire, cosy snug and many of the historical features of the mill have been retained. The decor is beautifully clean and light & reflects the calm of the surrounding natural elements and textures. We provide quality bed linen & towels.

About Keith Gustafson

We are a retired couple living in Hexham, Northumberland. We bought Le Moulin in 2013 and have since updated the property, which has been used as a holiday let for several years. Le Moulin is a restored Water Mill in rural Brittany. We have fitted it out to a high standard as we would expect to find ourselves. We have provided comfortable beds quality linen and towels and new kitchen equipment. At Le Moulin you will find everything you need including WIFI, bikes, games for the kids, DVDs, BBQ and lots of outdoor seating.

It really is an idyllic spot to spend a relaxing break at any time of the year.

Why Keith Gustafson chose Plénée-Jugon

The area of Brittany south of St Malo down to Dinan and across to St Brieuc is known as 'the golden triangle'. It has its own microclimate and is typically about 5 degrees warmer than the UK throughout the year. We like the South of France but it is too far and too hot!

We bought The Mill because of its rural location in unspoilt countryside away from the traffic. It is however close to many amenities. The magnificent coast is about half an hours drive. There are the local towns of Dinan and Lamballe with their medieval streets and fabulous markets.

The local town of Plenee Jugon is 5 minutes away by car, and the lovely resort of Jugon Le Lacs is 10 minutes away.

Then there is St Malo, Cancalle and Rennes, all well worth a day visit.

What makes this cottage unique

We think like ourselves you will find Le Moulin very special. The property has several acres of its own lawns, meadows and woodlands, so there are plenty places to walk.

We looked at many properties before buying The Mill, but most were too near a main road or industrial site.

So - here you have a totally rural setting with the convenience and proximity of nice local towns. Plenee Jugon is a small town but has a cafe, restaurant, flower shop, bakery, school, garage, supermarket, town hall and church!
