Overview

About the property

Nestled in the heart of Brittany lies the Moulin de Kerlautre a 17th Century Watermill tastefully converted to a comfortable two person Gite

In a tranquil setting, enjoy the sound of running water and birdsong, undisturbed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The front door leads to an open plan fully equipped kitchen, dining and sitting room, attractively furnished and decorated. A separate well-appointed bathroom equipped with a full size shower is also on the ground floor. For colder nights an log stove (and wood) is provided for your comfort. A staircase leads to a Mezzanine bedroom equipped with a double bed

The Gite is set in just under a hectare of amazingly diverse scenery including formal gardens, lawn, woodland, rockery and river with several sitting places around the grounds.

The owner’s property is onsite but the landscaping ensures privacy. Enjoy tranquil walks through the woodland or sit and relax and watch the Kingfisher on the river bank.

The Moulin de Kerlautre is ideal for those who are seeking peace and tranquillity with the chance to unwind whilst offering a central base to explore the rugged coastlines of the north, ancient towns, lakes and beaches and invigorating walks in the surrounding countryside

About Christine Lang

We've lived and worked overseas for over 20 years and currently work in West Africa. We fell in love with the house from pictures on the internet and reality has exceeded our expectations, the only sounds those of running water and bird song (and yes the occasional tractor).

Christine Lang purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Christine Lang chose Lignol

A peaceful stay in tranquility

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to relax and unwind : a perfect retreat for a short stay. Surrounded by fairytale woodland, my partner and I relaxed in the gardens, enjoyed endless walks and day trips out to local villages. This is a great place for a solo or couple retreat - thank you for a wonderful stay, Christine!

Heaven

The watermill was just simply amazing.

The grounds to relax in were brilliant and i think we ate in all the different places around the garden every morning and evening. I would recommend this place to everyone and the cost was brilliant too.So thanks to Christine we had a wonderful week and will certainly return in the future .

A very lovely property with nice surroundings and many kind places in the garden

  • 4 of 5

The property is exactly like it is shown, but some of the lovely places in the garden you have to

find out by yourself.

Chris has been very friendly and helpfull and we enjoyed talking to her. At one or two cold evenings the oven heated the house quickly and nice.

If you are looking for a peacefull holiday house with nice surroundings and friendly people and a

really good bed - come here and try out.

Quiet and peaceful, and not to remote.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely place and well equiped although some kind of music player would have been good. Really interesting grounds and right alongside the stream and mill race. Gardens are attractive although in September they were a bit overgrown, some plants rather congested the pathways around the cottage which was OK except after the rain which also made the decking in the lower patio a bit greasy and slippy but all else was fine.

Our only regret was with all that wood about it's a shame the heater isn't a wood burner instead of an oil heater, wasn't really cold but some evenings it would have nice to sit in front of a wood fire, maybe a fire pit would be a good idea.

All in all though a really clean pleasant place and just as described.We never did get to try any of the local restaurants but used the Intermache at Guémené-sur-Scorff.

Oh and if you need WiFi go to the Library in Guémené-sur-Scorff, up at the top of the main street by the small parking area.

Of interest are the castle walls in the town and are worth a look, our main reason for visiting this area was to visit the Carnac area but due to a miscalculation on my part they were a bit farther away than I realised but still reachable,about an hour and twenty away.

Good area for walking at least some of the roads, usually quiet, and forest tracks.

Owner's Response: Dear Stephen Thank you very much for your review, I hope you enjoyed your holiday. The garden does tend to get rather exuberant in Autumn! Your suggestion for music is well note. We are fitting a wood burning stove, (the oil was inherited) and in fact only yesterday purchased one that is suitable so hopefully should you decide to have another holiday with us, you will indeed be able to relax in front of it! With kind regards, Chris

Wunderschöne Wohlfühl-Oase für zwei Personen

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden vom Besitzerehepaar sehr herzlich empfangen. Auf einem kurzen Rundgang lernten wir die Mühle, den wunderschönen Garten, das angrenzende Waldstück und die verschiedenen Sitzplätze kennen. Die Mühle liegt sehr ruhig und etwas abseits in einer Senke. Auch im Hochsommer findet man am Bach oder am ehemaligen Kanal immer ein schattiges Plätzchen zum Verweilen, Lesen oder Malen. Ein traumhafter Ort für Romantiker!

Die Mühle ist zweckmässig eingerichtet mit einer neuen Küche und einem gemütlichen Wohnzimmer. Vom Esstisch aus sieht man direkt in die Baumkronen. Das Doppelbett thront auf einer offenen Galerie im oberen Stock. Das Besitzerehepaar wohnt nebenan, hält sich diskret im Hintergrund, ist aber sehr hilfsbereit.

Schöne Strände am Meer oder Ausflugsziele wie Carnac, Pont-Aven oder Concarneau sind ungefähr in einer Stunde mit dem Auto erreichbar. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es in Guémené oder in Le Faouët.

Wir würden sehr gerne wieder unsere Ferien in der Moulin de Kerlautre verbringen, so gut hat es uns gefallen.
