About Property Manager
Following unexpected redundancy; too young for retirement and wanting new challenges, we agreed a new home in Brittany could offer the space and more relaxed country lifestyle we had both enjoyed before the family responsibilities and demanding professions! We both have links with farming and with some renovating experience, we sold our Hampshire home and moved in to our Breton property ‘Penlan Huella’ Nov 2009 - shortly followed by the animals. We hope to bring new life back to the farm and its 7.5 acres of surrounding fields and woodland.We've converted two traditional stone farm buildings in to holiday Gites. With our interests in photography, wildlife, farming, animals, gardening and enjoying time and space with family and friends, our new lifestyle is meeting all our objectives.
Property Manager purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Property Manager chose Lopérec
We wanted rural but not too isolated. Somewhere our family and friends could visit easily without too much travelling or expense and somewhere to keep us busy but nothing over ambitious. We had a list of clear objectives and stuck to it! Its a very rural spot, but local active villages are only a few miles away. The general area has excellent and quiet road networks making driving easy, direct and pleasurable. Roscoff ferry port is less than one hour’s drive and Brest airport is only half an hour’s drive. Access from the UK can be very quick and easy. It may be rural, but we have excellent modern communication systems. Our broadband, UK television and telephone connections are better than we experienced in Hampshire!
What makes this Apartment unique
The gites have been designed for couples to relax in a generously spacious environment within a beautiful country location. Far reaching views from the south west facing Gites can be enjoyed through your windows, doors and outdoor areas. Wooded, riverside or open country walks on road or off-road cycling all possible from the doorstep. Within a few minutes’ drive from the Gites, you can be enjoying the beautiful Breton countryside, the beaches, fishing and harbor towns or inland villages. There is something of everything.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Lovely area....Richard and Claire very friendly and helpful. Gite is well equipped. Shower brilliant!! Downside for me was the high steps into gite....the bed was low and rather hard!! Not good for someone with bad knees! Overall tho great stay!
Lovely location, very peaceful. Accommodation was brilliant, spacious and very comfortable. Very friendly and helpful owners helped make our holiday really enjoyable. Thank you!
Thank you for your kind words, we are pleased you enjoyed your holiday here. Hope to see you again in the future.
Great Gite Great Location
This is a well-presented gite with all requirements catered for. Unfortunately, the weather was not wonderful but we could not have wanted for better accommodation. Richard was very accommodating when we needed to add a third bed at short notice. The property is big enough to handle this without a problem
Thank you for your kind words it was lovely to welcome you here. Sorry there wasn't anything we could do about the weather but always happy to help wherever we can.
Idyllic, fully equipped retreat
Had a lovely break in rural France. Everything to hand in this lovely gite and it's location makes visiting nearby attractions so easy. Excellent hosts, Richard and Claire were on hand with tips and recommendations. If you fancy an away from it all break, you will not find fault with this little gem.
Thank you Richard and Claire, a bientot.
Thank you for your kind review. We are pleased, you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you back soon
Brilliant! it does what it says on the tin an more
Being our first visit to a gite in Brittany my partner an I had no idea what to expect.
We were not disappointed indeed we were delighted with everything we found inside and outside of the Gite. Firstly it although it was dark when we arrived it was clear that the building was beautifully rustic from the outside but inside was much larger than the literature we had viewed. Very clean and tastefully decorated, equipped to a perfectly acceptable standard. Very comfortable bed and furniture, an extremely efficient heating system including a log burner means summer or winter this would be a cosy stay.
Set in a peaceful rural setting surrounded by woods and orchard which comes with the full variety of wildlife which is found in such settings. So tranquillity is the theme. If you are looking for hustle and bustle of night life this is not the place to be as all you will hear is the occasional call of an owl or other birds.
However as the roads within the National park, in which the Gite sits, are so good getting to the Towns and magnificent beaches take no time at all.
The hosts Richard and Clare were so helpful from the second we arrived to the time we left giving advice and assistance with pleasure when asked for but leaving you alone to enjoy your peace and quiet.
Would I recommend this venue to others? well out of 10 I would say a big 10! Oh yes we have already booked to return
If you want a quite restful holiday this is the place for you . A very warm welcome from Claire & Richard and a nice welcome pack the blackberry jam was to die for. Good base to enjoy the surrounding area. We wish you both all the best for the future and we will return . Thanks again
Many thanks for your kind comments, in a few words you have summed up what we are trying to achieve. Providing a quiet location which is central to all the main areas of interest in this part of Brittany. Look forward to providing you with more home-made jam on your next visit.
