This is your property ?


Plum Tree is one of four cottages that have been restored to provide modern conveniences whilst retaining all the charm of a typical French farmhouse.

Leaving in lots of the original features, like granite walls and exposed oak beams.

The ground floor consists of an open plan lounge/ kitchen /dining area, so Mum doesn't feel left out of the holiday and stuck in the kitchen.

The comfortable lounge/ dining area has a log burner, some granite walls and exposed oak beams.

The well equipped kitchen area has a door leading to a covered veranda.

The 1st floor has a shower room and 2 bedrooms, a large double bedroom and a bedroom with bunk beds both with granite walls and exposed oak beams.

There is a separate patio with garden furniture, sun canopy and a BBQ.

La Basse Rouerie is a traditional Breton farmhouse and Longere that dates back 600 years in parts.

It has two and a half acres of gardens with open views over undulating farmland.
There is a private patio area for each of the 4 gites which includes garden furniture, sun canopy and a BBQ.
Plus there is a communal patio area with a brick BBQ, the ideal place for parents to get to know one another, while the kids play. We have had many an enjoyable evening with a BBQ and a few drinks.

The above ground pool is made of teak to fit in with the surroundings in the orchard. It is heated and maintained at around 30-32 degrees. The pool is open from May - September.

The gardens are the ideal place to either relax by the pool, have a picnic under a tree, or just sit and read a good book while sipping a glass a wine.

There is a badminton net, swings, boules pit, swing ball, football net, and basketball net in the gardens, along with numerous games.

In the covered veranda area there is table soccer and a darts board.
The gardens are large and safe enough for children to play.

Just down the lane there is an 18 km Patrimoine walk through lovely countryside.

Bikes can be hired by the day or week and are delivered and collected from your cottage.
