About John H

We live in Solihull in the UK Midlands. John has his own Software Consulting business and Anne is a recently retired GP Practice Nurse.

We both have grown up children from previous marriages, but now we are on our own we have the freedom to enjoy life in our French second home. We are unapologetic francophiles with French connections on both sides of the family. French life is all about relaxation, food, wine, visiting wonderful places with great heritage and architecture, honing our language skills, and the kind of peace and quiet that we seem to have lost decades ago in Britain. We find it the perfect antidote to our busy UK lives. We hope you enjoy your French holiday, whether or not you choose to stay in our second home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A very nice spacious house with lots of character, nicely restored and with really comfortable furnishings. The large bath/shower room en-suite to the master bedroom was a touch or real luxury. The well equipped kitchen was excellent, and the outside seating/dining areas both on the front terrace and rear decking area were wonderful. Great country location with verdant, open surroundings, very relaxing.

Great area too, with lots see and a good choice of eating places.

Large, beautiful, quiet and well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay - very comfortable and homely. Luxurious bathrooms. Peaceful location with lovely views. Very well equipped and maintained. Only drawback - two bedrooms are only accessed through other ones.

Owner's Response: There is a 2 single beds kids room off the large master bedroom with a king-size bed. We call this the Family suite, and it has a luxury en-suite bathroom. There is another large double bedroom with king-size bed off a smaller double bedroom. However, as we only advertise the house as sleeping 6, we feel this smaller bedroom is not relevant.

We had a perfect week in Brittany at this charming property - clean, comfortable and well maintained. The house is set in beautiful countryside with uninterrupted views all around, yet only a short car drive to the nearest amenities. This house is truly a home-from-home and is perfectly equipped throughout. Patio areas to the front and rear allows one to take advantage of the sunshine (or shade as appropriate!) and were well used by us because the weather was superb for the whole week. If you enjoy cycling there are bicycles available to go out and explore. With very little traffic, it's an opportunity rarely afforded in the UK. Sleeping accommodation is excellent and the master bedroom is indeed a "tour de force" with a beautifully appointed, newly fitted ensuite bathroom that is possibly one of the largest I have ever seen. Whilst nestled in the country, from this house it is easy to access the coast where there are scores of unspoilt beaches to enjoy - which we did. A day exploring the beautiful city of Vannes is also recommended, and a trip or two to local markets is fun, interesting and provides an opportunity to purchase local produce which we enjoyed during relaxed evenings on the patio. All in all this was a wonderful holiday and to say that I would gladly return to this property is surely all you need in making a decision to stay here.
