French stone barns have been lovingly converted into the three large cottages, Les Fleurs, Le Chene and Les Hirondelles. Le Petit Cottage is an adjacent, smaller, stone barn. La Tenue au Galli offers flexible accommodation with home from home comforts. Each cottage is sufficiently private to be rented by itself but the cottages may also be combined to accommodate groups of all sizes up to 20 people. The largest cottage, Les Fleurs, is designed for easy wheelchair access, with a ground floor bedroom with en-suite roll-in shower room specially equipped with grab rails, raised WC & adjustable washbasin.
Les Fleurs can be used as a one bedroomed apartment or can be combined with Le Chene to provide a 6 bedroomed cottage for larger family groups or friends.
All cottages are characterised by their exposed granite walls, huge, original oak beams, light and spacious living areas and comfortable, homely furniture. Great care has been taken to retain as many of the original features of the buildings as possible whilst also providing modern, fully equipped kitchens, well appointed bathrooms and central heating throughout. Outside, each cottage has its own patio area with a barbecue, table and chairs. The swimming and spa pool are set in the middle of a shared lawned garden surrounded by flowers.

We were looking for a Christmas in winter as we are Australian. The barn that we stayed in was perfect. It was just like the site says. Celia was very helpful, friendly but not intrusive. When we had friends come to visit from England she accommodated them with no fuss. Also when the heating broke she had it fixed immediately. She made sure the phone call was responded to and gave us a heater while waiting for ours to be fixed. All with no fuss. The village or Pluherlin was very friendly with all that we needed for our day to day living. The villagers chatted to me when I was out walking and were patient with my limited French. The Supermarket and butcher were very friendly in the town. The town of Rochfort-en-terre was magical at Christmas and the people there were very nice. We ate at the Café de puis about three to four times and were always welcomed. The atmosphere was warm, the service efficient and Francois made us feel at home and was helpful with the French menu. I would thoroughly recommend the cottage and the area.
I needed a place in France for 3 weeks to work remotely (Asian business hours), train for a marathon and relax with some authentic French country experience. Le Petit was better than I could have had hoped for.
The cottage is charming with modern kitchen and bathroom and clearly lovingly restored and furnished. I felt a bit like a (giant) hobbit in my cosy little stone cottage. But hobbits don't do email and VoIP but with the reliable and fast internet connection it was as if I was in my office in Tokyo. Plus excellent laundry facilities, bicycles to borrow, swimming pool etc.
Pluherlin is very quiet, peaceful (nothing to tempt me from a 10 pm lights out), but has all the basics - bakery, butcher, auberge, bar, general store and a church with lots of bells. The neighbouring village of Rochefort en Terre is ridiculously picturesque and only a decent walk away.
The owner Celia was available and extremely hospitable and helpful, but not intrusive.
The surrounding countryside has dozens of marked trails through farmland, parks, forests with great views, varied terrain and authentic rural smells - wildflowers, pines, pigs, cows, chickens etc. Celia has thoughfully provided a set of trail maps in the cottage which are now slightly used.
Beaches are 45 mins away so readily accessible without the traffic and noise associated with being too close.
Highly recommended. I will be back.
We rented Le Petit cottage, the smallist of 4 converted barns. We loved it, comfortable, homely, clean. The dishwasher was a bonus, plus central heating for chilly days. Deserted beaches within 20 mins drive. Beautiful lake within 5 mins walk. Tranquil location but well situated, however car is a must for sightseeing - . Made to feel very welcome by owner who was extremely helpful and informative. Very friendly village. Will definitely go back.
Ein herzliches Willkommen (auch für unsere beiden Hunde), ein gemütliches Häuschen (sauber und mit allem Komfort), eine zauberhafte Umgebung und die netteste Gastgeberin, die man sich wünschen kann......ein perfekter Urlaub!
