Overview

Inzinzac-Lochrist Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Secluded in its own 25 acres yet close to all amenities and wonderful beaches

Coet Per is a substantial, immaculately maintained, 5 bed roomed luxury home set in its own 25 acre park. It is a well equipped private home which is now available to rent - not a gite or a complex but a private estate offering an oasis of tranquility and beauty.

The land includes a lake, ponds and stream fed from its own spring, paths and woodland as well as gardens, an orchard, a covered heated swimming pool and a 4 hole golf course.

The house, which is south facing, is set in an elevated position in the picturesque Blavet valley, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. The property is entirely secluded - a naturalists’ dream - and yet less than 5 minutes are the expressway network and the small town of Languidic which supplies all everyday needs. Some of the best beaches of Brittany are reached within 25 minutes via quiet country roads. The picturesque ancient market towns of Hennebont and Auray are also close by.

Full details including floor plans and a plan of the grounds are available at: please contact ownr for more details.

THE HOUSE:

GROUND FLOOR:

A spacious hallway leads to an impressive 50 sqm, brightly lit salon with a large corner fireplace incorporating a Scandinavian built wood burning fire. This 13KW fire efficiently heats the whole of the ground floor during the winter, using free fuel from the woods. However this, and all rooms in the house, have radiators for the oil fired central heating system.

The modern kitchen was totally refurbished in 2012. It has stunning granite work surfaces, a double oven, induction hob, dishwasher and extensive storage. The adjacent utility room houses the full height fridge and freezer and washing machine and offers considerable further storage facilities.

The kitchen is very well equipped, in keeping with the fact that this is a home rather than a rental gite.

Double doors from the kitchen open onto the large conservatory which overlooks the pool and gardens – a delightful place to entertain dinner guests or just enjoy an evening drink whilst watching the sunset.

The large master bedroom is south facing and has ensuite facilities including a bath

2 further double bedded rooms each have modern shower cubicles.

A modern toilet with washbasin.

UPSTAIRS:

Fully carpeted curved stairs ascend to the upper hallway.

2 large double bedded rooms face south towards the lake.

Large, modern family bathroom and separate WC.

The huge 60 sq.m. games room has a table tennis table, snooker table, dart board and games cupboard as well as the library of over 500 DVDs

GROUNDS:

A plan of the complete park is on the website.

The house and terrace look down extensive lawns to the lake which covers approximately 1 acre, has a small treed island, and is home to Jo and Gretel, our swans. It is well stocked with fish and also has resident ducks and moorhens. It is a great attraction to all sorts of wildlife including heron and cormorants from the nearby Blavet River.

A small stream, which rises from a spring within the woods, runs through a pool and series of small falls to feed the lake. From the dam at the other end, a cascade falls to a newly constructed lily pond from which the small natural stream passes on via our neighbours’ paddock to the Blavet.

To the left of the drive leading to the electric gates of the property is the 3.5 acre 4 hole golf course. This was only set out last year, so is definitely not Gleneagles standard! However it can provide useful practice before you set off for the local golf courses.

A layout plan for the course can be found on the website.

Adjacent to the house is the 9x4.5m heated swimming pool which has lifting covers.

Nearly 20 acres of mixed woodland are networked by well maintained tracks. Besides offering tranquil walks and an opportunity to view deer and other wild life they also provide an endless supply of fuel for the wood burning stove.

The orchard of about 1.5 acres has an extensive range of both mature as well as more recently planted fruit trees and soft fruit. There is absolutely nothing to beat eating large handfuls of sun warmed cherries straight from the tree if you visit at the right time of year!

These are the sort of grounds any lover of nature and wildlife will love – certainly not the norm in a holiday home! Please explore the website which has many photos to show the beauty of the place

The Area

From Coet Per it is 5 minutes stroll down to the banks of the River Blavet – an area of outstanding and unspoilt beauty. The Blavet has been canalised since Napoleonic times from Pontivy down to the sea at Lorient. Today however the once busy commercial waterway is peaceful - you occasionally see small leisure boats negotiating the well kept locks in summer but most of the time it is a quiet haven for wildlife, fishermen and kayakers. The towpath is well maintained and used extensively by walkers and cyclists.

The small towns of Languidic and Lochrist can be reached in 5 minutes (different directions) and supply all everyday needs: bakers, supermarkets, pharmacies, doctors, dentists, banks and restaurants. The Fleur de Sel restaurant in Languidic is exceptional in quality and different in style.

Close by are the quaint old market towns of Hennebont and Auray (with its attached ancient port of St Gustan).

Half an hour away, larger commercial concerns (hyper markets/DIY superstores/specialist stores) are found in Pontivy or Lorient/Lanester which are also home to the excellent, modern hospitals.

The renowned sandy beaches of Southern Brittany are less than a ½ hour drive away on small lanes through rolling farmland, woods and small villages. The coastal scenery is varied and the coast largely undeveloped whilst many offshore islands provide fabulous views and places to visit.

About Anne and Julian Whitlock

After we sold our company in 2001 we bought Coet Per. However, we also had a long-held dream to sail around the world, which we did on our Tayana 55 sailing yacht 'Freewheel' between 2002 and 2007. During that time Coet Per was very successfully used for holiday rental and many guests enjoyed its tranquility.

On our return, we ceased renting for a while but last year we decided to go off on long term travels again so Coet Per is again available for holiday makers to enjoy its peace and beauty.

Anne and Julian Whitlock purchased this chateau / country house in 2002

Why Anne and Julian Whitlock chose Inzinzac-Lochrist

We wanted a property in Southern Brittany - a part of France we already knew well, offering a peaceful rural lifestyle in an area of great beauty with a wonderful coastline - and found Coet Per. It was an opportunity to own our own 25 acres of natural grounds which we would never have found available in the UK.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Coet Per offers freedom in its own area of peace and beauty.

It is secluded and private, and yet less than 5 minutes from all day to day amenities and within easy reach of beaches, quaint old market towns and the archeological wonder of Carnac.

Few other properties offer the renter sole use of a 25 acre estate with swimming pool, golf course, lake and woodland walks.

perfect family holidays

  • 5 of 5
We - a great family with great parents , two nices of mine and my family with 3 "teenager kid´s" spent a wonderful week in this outstanding location!First we were expected from " Mary" with very warm "welcome package" (Champagne, wine, fruits bread, cheese . . . etc.). Coet Per is an wonderful place for to "everything or nothing" what ever you want! biking along the beautiful river Blavet, walking, trips to the nearby coast, visit Lorient,Carnac, Quimperle ... Or just relaxing , reading a book in one of the most beautiful houses I´ve ever been! Practicing a little bit on the "new" 4 hole Golf Area(okay its only for practicing - but where do you get this possibility in a normal Holiday home? The weather in our week was very poor - but it does´nt matter! Everyone was HAPPY! The next village nearby -Languedic- is about 5 min away by car, there you get everything- one of the best "Creperies" is there so called "Creperie des Fleures" ! we will recommend COET PER for all our friends!

Wow! What an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5
Cost Per is amazing! The house itself held all 10 of us easily with plenty of room to spread. Everything was spotless when we arrived ( quite a long drive from the airport but easy). The villa lacked for nothing; it was really well equipped. The pool was also excellent and was very regularly cleaned. We arrived late in the evening but were warmly welcomed by Mary, who had provided plenty of food and drink to tide us over, and returned the next day with more as it was a Sunday! Mary was lovely; respectful of our privacy but so helpful and friendly. The grounds are wonderful too; we saw foxes, mistle thrushes, garden birds on the feeder (which was refilled regularly) and the very tame swans and ducks. There are extensive walks with beautiful views. There is also a fruit cage and orchard which we were encouraged to access, and we have eaten apples, rhubarb, raspberries, blueberries, blackcurrants galore and even blackberries from the woods. We were a three generation party and there was plenty for everyone, including darts, snooker, table tennis, a boules area, WiFi, and a huge choice of DVDs and CDs. Brittany is beautiful too and we loved the beaches, Auray, Port Louis, Hennebont and Languidic to name but a few.
Thank you Julian and Anne for going on your travels again and renting out your beautiful home!

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday staying at Coet Per which is a beautiful home in an extensive estate including a golf course, a huge garden and a lake full of swans and ducks.

It was a perfect and well equipped venue for our large family who were aged between 9 and 80! It provided something for everyone - peace and quiet for the older people and many activities for the young boys.
They particularly enjoyed the ping pong and snooker in the games room and also cycling on the bikes provided for the 3 kms to Penquesten to fetch the croissants for breakfast in the mornings.

At first we were a bit daunted by the complicated pool cover but soon got the hang of it and much appreciated the warmth and cleanliness of the water which the children enjoyed no end.

The sun shone every day except for one spectacular evening storm which was great for the garden.

We walked along the river, explored Lorient, went to the markets in Auray and Hennebont. As most of the party were vegetarian we decided to have meals out at the Creperie des Fleurs in Languidic and the Pizzaria in Lochrist, both excellent and able to cope with a large party of ravenous noisy kids.

Coet Per is managed by Mary Swarbrick who was a star. She was so welcoming and helpful and discreetly found a way to mow the extensive lawns and golf course without disturbing us at all. She also coped well with a medical problem we had and was there for support and advice.

We very much hope to return to Coet Per one day and in the meantime will retain many happy memories of our stay there.

A perfect holiday home in an amazing setting!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and our 1-year old son spent six days at Coet Per in July 2014 and we enjoyed every minute. The place is a true gem! The property is very well maintained and equipped and the park that surrounds it is really beautiful. If you are looking for a quiet, private and beautiful place that has everything you need this is the place to go. Anne the host is extremely friendly and informative and so is Mary who welcomes you at the house. We only have positive things to say about Coet Per. Highly recommended!

A beautiful secluded property in rural Brittany

  • 5 of 5
Turning up a lane from Pont Neuf, past a horse paddock, then left past the golf course, through some gates and there it was.  Coet Per, a large family French designed and built house with lovely blue shutters everywhere.

For the first few days we explored the house and grounds, generally winding down and relaxing. It was a delight to have breakfast and coffee in the early morning on the terrace, enjoying the surrounding sights and sounds. We loved the experience of sunsets that provided a stunning backdrop to our evening meals in the conservatory.

The nearby Blavet riverside makes for easy cycling and walking. It’s flat with a reasonable surface.  Upstream to Pont d’Augen/Baud/Pontivy/Tremorin it is again flat, passing through working dairy farms. Downstream to Inzinzac and Hennebont, passes through low hills.

The whole area is stuffed with history, from Henry II to Hitler. Visitors interested in local history would find a little research prior to their visit would pay dividends, if only to reduce the vast choice to reasonable proportions!

Shops in Inzinzac and Baud are within easy reach by car, mainly via country lanes. Pontivy, Josselin and Hennebont, major tourist centres, have attractive town centres and weekly country markets.

Fantastic estate with complete privacy.

  • 5 of 5
What a surprise to drive round the corner at the top of the hill and see Coet Per for the first time. The house was immaculate with every facility as promised and everything worked! The garden close to the house was a dream and walking further afield into the wooded drives, which are still part of the estate, provided an opportunity for a cool stroll in the middle of hot days. The pool was very secure and easy to use. The wildlife on the lake was a joy and endlessly fascinating. The manager was discrete but mentioned suitable shopping and eating places when we asked. The beach was near enough for easy day trips as was the ancient town of Auray. Hennebont was a couple of hours along the Blavet walking along the river bank. We would certainly visit Coet Per again and have mentioned it to all our friends.
