General Description

French cottage rental near Audierne - Set on a 15th century estate, this superb period cottage forms part of one of the most important grand manor houses in France, with documented history dating back to 1344; as a bonus it is within walking distance of the sandy beach at St Tugen and is close to many pretty coastal towns in Brittany. This lovely cottage, which has been continually inhabited for 500 years, has been carefully restored and refurbished with enthusiastic advice from La Societe de Batiments Historiques de France. The 100 acre estate includes a small chapel, disused but charming, a 15th century dovecote, a lake and apple orchard, swimming pool and tennis court. All facilities on the estate will be shared by guests staying in the Manor House, Garden Wing or The Tower. A local traiteur can prepare delicious meals - suckling pig or wonderful fresh Breton lobsters and much more: you will be spoilt for choice. The lively summer resort of Audierne offers a wide choice of restaurants and cafes. Within walking distance of this property is also the long sandy beach of St Tugen, ideal for spending both active and relaxing days by the sea.
