La Guerche de Bretagne is a charming Breton village of more than 5000 inhabitants situated at the gateway to Brittany.
It has a lovely town centre with timber-framed buildings (colombages in French) and a magnificent basilica – Our Lady of the Assumption.
This is where we found the home we had been searching for for a long time and we were immediately captured by this magical place.
We are so privileged to have a fantastic garden with flowers and trees – the garden is more than 1.3 hectares (around 3.2 acres) and we are in the heart of nature – a peaceful setting where the birds, our cats, the squirrels (and us too!) have found a little corner of paradise.
In this tranquil and restful setting, you will find the perfect place to relax and entertain yourselves – we have everything you need – a very large, covered and heated swimming pool, a tennis court with space to play basketball too and relaxation areas with a double sun lounger and swing chairs…
Everything is geared to your relaxation and enjoyment
We have created a romantic holiday cottage (a gîte of 84 square metres) and a bed and breakfast with 4 rooms. Two of our rooms are currently available (The Cornflower Suite and the Sapphire Bedroom). Our second suite, which is called “Nougat” will open in December and our second bedroom, which is called Emerald, will open in Spring 2021.
We have lived here since the summer of 2019 and we still have lots of projects ongoing so that we can offer even more comfort and services to our guests.
On the ground floor we have our dining room which is available to all our guests. There, you will find a fridge, a microwave and a coffee machine (which takes pods)…
Our dining room is very light thanks to its triple aspect with windows facing South, East and West.
Background music is available but often our guests prefer to enjoy spending time together chatting.
Our house faces full south and, in Summer, it is lovely to breakfast or dine outside where guests can enjoy the magnificent view across the garden with its rose garden, fountain and the occasional squirrel.
A gas barbecue is also available for our guests’ use.
On our mezzanine landing, we have a really nice French billiard table for amateur players!
Our house is at the heart of a garden that is more than one hectare (around 3.2 acres) – a restful and bucolic setting where you can listen to the birdsong and enjoy nature.
It’s the ideal place to go for a walk – follow the pathways to discover all the trees that we have – oak, chestnut, hazelnut, walnut, magnolia and an orchard.
The garden is full of flowers and will only get better in the years to come as we continue to plant – we love old roses which are not just beautiful but also wonderfully fragrant.
On the practical side, there is a very large parking area where our guests can park their cars securely. Parking is free of charge.
In our garden, you will also find a tennis court where you can also play basketball – something that has been a great success!
To enable our guests to relax, read and rest, we have installed some swing chairs and also a double sun lounger – all benefitting from shade.
As we are inland, a swimming pool is a must. Our pool measures 10 metres by 5 metres which allows our guests to enjoy having fun but also to do lengths if they so choose. The depth of the pool increases gradually to a maximum depth of 2 metres.
We provide lots of swim rings, lilos, inflatable balls… The pool is covered and heated and is open from Easter to the end of October. It’s also a great place to laze on the sun loungers provided.
