About Rustique Cottage Holidays - Mike and Clare Pratt

Clare and Mike Pratt purchased the cottages on site in 2003 having stayed there previously and fell in love with the beautiful Morbihan area and beaches. They loved the woods, river Clai and Nantes Brest Canal that are all so near by and great for bike rides and walking.They added the large patio and shared solar heated pool later and started to arrange holidays for family and friends and then created a listed French Business later. In 2013 Mike and Clare did also develop some Interest Breaks, having organised a week long fishing trip previously and having discovered some lovely walks.

Clare is also a trained Masseur, Reiki Master and Registered Healer with the Modern Mystery School so can offer some wonderful relaxing treatments on site.

Reiki training and Empower Thyself courses can be arranged with fully trained teachers and Fishing breaks, Walking Breaks and Cycling Breaks are other suggestions for this venue. More can be seen on the Web Site for Rustique Cottage Holidays.

Mike and Clare have two lovely dogs and Clare has a grown up son Ben, who often stays in Summer. They split time between Norfolk and Brittany and have learned some French to help them settle in.

Why Rustique Cottage Holidays - Mike and Clare Pratt chose Ploermel area

The Morbihan region is very special. It is Mystical and the Bretton people hold some ownership to the Legends of King Arthur, Merlin and related tales. The Forest of Broceliande is near by which is meant to have great meaning to these tales. The Gift shops are full of related books, figures and gifts linking with Folklore.

The Bretton Dancing is also very charming and the close by Medieval Villages of Rochefort En Terre, La Gacilly, and towns of Malestroit, Ploermel and Redon have much to admire.

The cottages are only 30 to 40 minutes from the lovely beaches of Southern Brittany.

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottages are sited in an old Valley which is said to link in with Pilgrims journeying to Spain. The ancient Mystic energy is certainly strong in Morbihan and links to Megaliths and Standing Stones such as Monteneuf and lifts there can be arranged if required and also to the ancient Forest of Brocliande.

The cottages also have a beautiful shared Spanish slate patio with views down to oak trees in the garden and organic farm at the end of the garden. The solar heated pool is also great fun for families and the kids can enjoy that, letting parents relax in the sun!

So Perfect we didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property! It would be romantic for a couple and yet perfect for us with our four and seven year old boys. Mike and Claire were available, informative and friendly yet for those reclusives among us (namely me) never too much! There was so much to do at the property itself and yet so much in the locality that we barely scratched the surface in one week. We will certainly be returning! And could probably happily book the next ten years! Thank you Claire and Mike for providing such wonderfully relaxing, yet stimulating ambiance! It was our best holiday ever!
