Le Cosquer situated in the Commune of Quistinic is a wonderful small and friendly hamlet within a 5 minute drive of the beautiful River Blavet and 25 minutes from the coast.
Both rated 5* on TripAdvisorr, La Maison Blanche and *Hirondelle are set in gardens of one acre and are both south facing. For the children there is a lovely playhouse with swing and slide, all set under the trees to keep it in the shade all day
Both properties have their own BBQ area with Patio table and chairs overlooking the open countryside.
We're happy to accommodate well behaved dogs in most circumstances, for a small fee.
Surrounded by the most beautiful countryside, Le Cosquer is an ideal base for walking and cycling with canoeing and kayaking close by on the Blavet.
Within easy driving distances are the lovely towns of Hennebont, Josselin, Vannes, Auray and Pontivy all steeped in History.
The beautiful Gulf of Morbihan is an hour's drive away where you can take a boat trip around the various islands.
*La Maison Blanche has exclusive use of the private and secluded heated swimming pool (May-September) - 4 feet deep - with small roman end steps.
While on holiday, we fell in love with the property although total renovation was needed! After having finished La Maison Blanche while still living and working in Devon, we found it more and more difficult to leave and decided to move here permanently in 2010 to renovate Hirondelle.
Mary Salter purchased this farmhouse in 2004

We were looking for a rural idyllic retreat and we found it at La Maison Blanche. Photos do not due justice to the beauty of the location. House is top quality and the hosts were extremely hospitable. With a private pool, bikes and even badminton available to us our teenagers were also very impressed. Mary is an excellent cook and we enjoyed several beautiful meals. We also appreciated Chris's lovely fresh potatoes, beans and lettuce. Memories of this wonderful holiday, made special by our wonderful hosts, will stay with us for a very long time. Would wholeheartedly recommend for anyone who enjoys peace and tranquillity in a beautifully natural setting.
