manors for sale - finistère - in brittany

An 18th century manor house and its converted outbuildings
beside a chapel in Brittany
Quimper, FINISTERE brittany 29000 FR


In the south of the French department of Finistère, 11 km from Quimper, a prefecture exuding character, with its airport and TGV train station putting Paris-Orly only 75 minutes away and Paris-Montparnasse 195 minutes away.
The Cornouaille region has a particularly long coastline. The Glénans archipelago and Benodet’s beaches are less than 30 minutes away; other sites to explore or visit again include Raz Point or even Pont-Aven, known for its art studios.


This property, in heavily wooded, hilly countryside, adjoins the church precincts of a 15th century gothic-style chapel, housing a famous altarpiece. It is set in a protected sector, free of any nuisances. In front is a small wooded square where a weekly market selling organic produce is held. The presence of a fountain, supposedly with healing powers, a little further away in a field bears witness to a site much-visited in the past as, according to tradition, its waters cured fevers.
A wide gateway, flanked by two tall lime trees, provides access into a courtyard, facing the manor house. A building, on the right-hand side, has been converted into a holiday rental accommodation unit; another is in use as a workshop. A very long house comprises two separate homes. A carpark at the back can take ten or so cars.
This property is set in approx. 5,200 m² of land.

Our opinion

The current owners of this priory carried out works lasting four years in order for their guests to feel at home in this spot, resembling a retreat, in the midst of the countryside and yet so near to one of France’s most beautiful coastlines. Everything is in place for the activity to be continued, especially as the renovation works were meticulously carried out, notably with regard to the choice of materials. So well in fact that this manor house and its annex buildings can stand proudly next to its immediate neighbour, a gothic-style chapel with its atrium windows and its spire as well as its sacristy with its roof in the form of an inverted ship’s hull. The exploration of Brittany’s heritage begins just a stone’s throw from the residence.
