About Andrew & Marina

We moved from the UK to enjoy the French lifestyle in the house we adore. Now we would like to share the peace and harmony of such a wonderful part of France with you.

Our French holiday home became our permanent residence in 2010, when we decided to move to France to savour countryside living .......and we have not looked back since!

Newly renovated and restored the cottage is now ready for guests to rent and enjoy as holiday accommodation, for the 2017 season and beyond.

Andrew & Marina purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Andrew & Marina chose Guern

A tranquil retreat set in a rural location makes it a superb getaway from hectic everyday life to pamper yourself and have quality time with family and friends.

With little passing traffic, the views extend forever and the dark velvet skies at night free from pollution - so many stars......

What makes this cottage unique

Brittany is a very friendly area set in beautiful countryside with so much to explore, Medieval towns, markets, children's activities whilst able to offer stunning coast locations only 45 minutes away, so plenty of variation for all. To assist you with ideas of what to see while you are on holiday please see 'Places to visit' folder upon your arrival to help you plan so many wonderful places to visit during your holiday, or you can just kick back and relax.

Amazing Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by this property it was fantastic and the pictures on the site do not do it justice-it is beautiful. Everything was perfect and the owners were on hand and lovely if needed. Our dog Alfie had a ball for a week and I would not hesitate to recommend this property. It was a week of complete relaxation.

We had a fantastic stay! If we could give it 10 stars we would!

  • 5 of 5

Andrew and Marina were perfect hosts and went above and beyond to provide everything to make the holiday perfect. Coet coet Niel has been restored to a very high level and tastefully decorated. It has spoilt us for anywhere else we would stay! The children loved the house and the pool and there were so many other things to keep them occupied, pool table, table tennis etc that we hardly noticed a day of rain! Our dog was free to roam the property as the vast grounds are fully enclosed and safe. We travelled around and found some beautiful towns and beaches. Would highly recommend this outstanding property to anyone.

Tracy, Chris, Tom (16), Sian (14), Finlay (10) and Charlie the cockerpoo (2).

A breathtaking experience as you draw onto the driveway

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely gorgeous cottage which offers both style and seclusion. At the time of booking we couldn't believe it was a 'single let' but it really is all yours. It offers total privacy both from the front and back of the property and the owners (Andrew & Marina) are absolutely lovely people who simply cant do enough for you. The welcome pack is well in advance of anything we've experienced before and many other items are provided as standard to make your stay a memorable one. The property is only 15-20 minutes away from Pontivy for supplies and less than 45 minutes drive to the coast. The beautiful heated swimming pool in the garden really makes those sunny days even more pleasurable and when / if the sun doesn't shine there are many places to visit (can really recommend trips to Auray / Port St. Goustan and also Josselin. We really wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property and look forward to returning at our first opportunity.

My husband and I stayed here for 9 days. It's an absolutely stunning property and the owners have thought of everything you can possibly need. The grounds are lovely and lovingly maintained. The location is so peaceful, surrounded by fields. The only noise is the sound of birds! The tempur mattress in the main bedroom is so comfortable and guarantees you a good night's sleep. The owners are lovely and are close by should you need anything. Whilst it is a rural location, Pontivy is only a short drive away which has plenty of good restaurants to chose from. This really is a 5* property and exceptionally good value for money. We are likely to be back!! Thank you so much.

Would defiantly visit this stunning cottage again!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here just for a week, but could of stayed for longer. Perfect location, peace and quiet in the countryside but only short drive to a stunning beach. Spacious cottage, with big garden front and back. We have a little one and he loved it too. The owners, are family orientated with lots of child friendly perks plus pram and high chair!!! Would defiantly recommend this high star holiday break.
