About Belinda McMullen

We are an English family with three children. We bought Maison la Boissiere because it is in the ideal loacation. An hour and a half from St Malo, quiet and rural so our children can run free, cycle for miles on quiet lanes and paths, kyak and paddle at the lake, cycle to the tennis courts & boulangerie, explore the many markets and yet its only 30-45 minutes to an abundance of glorious beaches on the coast. It is the perfect place for family and friends of all ages.

Belinda McMullen purchased this house in 2006

Why Belinda McMullen chose Merléac

This is the ideal place to get away with friends and family for a wonderful relaxing holiday in a tranquil part of Brittany. A large and comfortable home with a private heated pool, lovely garden with lots for children to do. Bicycle rides, markets, tennis, kayaking, trips to the beach, large family meals around the wonderful dining table. A place where memories are made.

What makes this house unique

We love the area, a part of real Brittany which is still largely untouched by tourism. You can bicycle for miles without coming across more than one or two cars. We love the nearby fresh water lake where we swim and kyak, walk and picnic. We wanted a place where we could gather with friends and family for memorable holidays away from the busy bustle of the tourist resorts.
