Treverec is between the two picturesque towns of Pontrieux and Lanvollon, with their selection of restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets and weekly markets. Just 15 minutes from the Goelo Coast and 25 minutes from the Rose Granite Coast, they are ideally positioned for an enjoyable and relaxing holiday in the beautiful Cotes d'Armor region of Northern Brittany.

Each cottage has an open plan kitchen/dining area and lounge area downstairs, together with a good sized bathroom. Upstairs there are two bedrooms - one super king and one twin bedroom in each cottage. Each cottage also has its own terrace with a stone table and benches, parasol and a barbecue. There are also books, dvds, cds, toys and games provided for each cottage.

Guests are welcome to use the garden areas at the front and to the side of the main house, Le Presbytere. There is also a covered area next to Le Pretre for hanging washing and where further garden chairs and cushions, garden toys and games and six bicycles will be found. There is ample parking near the main entrance for a maximum of three vehicles.

Duvets and pillows are provided, together with bedlinen, towels (not beach towels, but these can be hired), bath mat and tea towels.

Prices include water, gas, electricity, wifi/internet connection, welcome pack, final clean and local taxes.

All through the year an initial fire is laid in the wood burner for clients' use, along with a basketful of logs ( for stays of 3+ nights). Further logs may be purchased.

About Julia Mist

My husband and I decided to move to France with our 4 year old son in 2003. My husband is a qualified chef and had his own outside catering company and I was practising as an holistic aromatherapist, but we decided to give it all up to begin a new adventure. That all seems such a long time ago now and so much has happened since then. We have met so many people from many different countries and from all walks of life, our son speaks English with an English accent and French with a French accent and we feel totally at home in this beautiful part of the world.

Julia Mist purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Julia Mist chose Guingamp area

Le Presbytere is the most beautiful house. How could we resist its wonderful atmosphere and good looks? It was, of course, not as you see it today, as it was in a very sorry state when we first saw it in August 2002, but with the help of local artisans, we were able to return it to its former glory. The two cottages, Le Pretre and Le Cure, were just outbuildings before we totally renovated them into comfortable holiday accommodation.

Treverec is near the picturesque town of Pontrieux in Cotes d'Armor. The area generally is renowned for its scenery and is popular with visitors for walking, fishing, golf, horse riding, water sports and of course the beaches. The coast of Northern Brittany is renowned for its shellfish and a speciality of the region are buckwheat pancakes known as galettes. Treverec is 15 minutes from the Goelo Coast, with its many seaside and harbour towns, and 25 minutes from the Pink Granite Coast, famous for its beautiful islands and interesting rock formations. Both coastlines offer wonderful sandy beaches, numerous rock pools to explore and safe bathing. For those interested in architecture there are many historic places to visit nearby, such as the Abbaye de Beauport and the Chateau de la Roche Jagu. For a relaxing day out take the ferry from Paimpol over to the beautiful Isle de Brehat which because of its micro climate has flowers blooming all year round and where no cars are allowed.

Other Activities: Boules courts next to property. Basket ball court, outdoor table tennis table, children's play area and picnic tables in village centre - just a short walk from the property.

A very comfortable, beautifully appointed give in the grounds of a lovely old presbytery. Ideally located for exploring this very pretty part of Brittany. The owners, Lawrence and Julia, were discreet but very much on hand when help was needed. Very highly recommended.

Outstanding delightful stay

  • 4 of 5

The property is extremely comfortable and charming. Spacious bedrooms and a very well equipped kitchen. The outdoor area is generous and well equipped - it was lovely to sit in the sun for dinner with the scent of roses in the air. Our hosts Lawrence and Julia were warm and welcoming, with many excellent suggestions of things to do in the area. Our only regret was that we did not have longer in the region to enjoy the Old Presbytery and its surrounds!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A thoroughly enjoyable week's stay in this tranquil location. Our second trip to Le Pretre and just as good as the first time. Both cottages are well equipped, clean and family friendly. The English owners are friendly, extremely helpful and knowledgable regarding the locality and unobtrusive. The garden is excellent for kids and we would thoroughly recommend this venue.

Le Cure in June/July

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect stay for us and our childrens (2/8/14). We enjoyed the very nice location with the terrace, the garden and the equipment for the childs.

The owner Julia and Lawrence are very helpful, very friendly and do whatever they can do to make your holidays perfect.

The house itself is clean, equiped as desribed .. we would recommend it to friends.

To visit all the interesting places on the coast you need a car -- then it's easy and fast. We never had traffic jam in two weeks main saison.

The wheather was also perfect .. as well as swimming at very nice- and native beaches.

Holiday at 'Le Pretre'

  • 5 of 5

We recently had 2 weeks at 'Le Petre' and thoroughly njoyed our stay there. The charming cottage was very well equipt and most comfortable, particularly welcome was the large woodburner for the couple of cold nights we had !. We had a very warm welcome from Julia and Lawrence and lots of information about the area. There are so many Beautiful and interesting places to visit that 2 weeks was not long enough and we certainly intend to return again.
