This delightful stone cottage makes a perfect vacation bolt-hole. The property is set inland, but it still provides easy access to the coast and, in particular, the picturesque stretch of coastline which is often referred to as the Côte de Granit Rose (Pink Granite Coast). Whether you envisage spending time at the beach, discovering the colourful fishing ports or exploring the historical towns and countryside further inland, you will be spoilt for choice. The gourmands amongst you will no doubt be keen to sample the seafood and regional specialities such as coquilles Saint-Jacques, as well as the much-loved Breton galette.
Saint-Brieuc, the capital of Côtes-d’Armor, lies to the east and will offer a suitable distraction should you tire of the scenic countryside. During the summer months you will find a variety of music festivals and markets as well as the historic cathedral. Another town nearby is Guingamp which offers architectural heritage and amusements. Dating from the 18th century, the central square is ideal for watching the world go by.
The property is just five minutes away from a village south of Bourbriac. The cottage itself is well renovated. A driveway leads up to the house from the lane and opens onto a pretty setting. A stream runs alongside the limit of the land with an attractive bridge. The garden of 1,500 square meters is mainly laid to lawn with established trees and shrubs. The interior, with its two fireplaces, beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls, offers further charm. Open plan living and kitchen areas have wooden floors. There are two bedrooms, including a mezzanine bedroom, and a shower room. A basement provides room for a workshop.
The renovation of this property, along with its setting, provides a perfect holiday home.
