All our representatives have followed unique career paths and Gilles Baleria, responsible in our estate agency for the Cornouaille region, is no exception to the rule.
Visitors wanting to reach this address will have to travel several kilometres on roads through the Bigouden area heading towards the far west coast of France. Great is their surprise when, on rounding the last bend, they catch a glimpse of the facade of Hilguy manor house in Plogastel-Saint-Germain.
On the right-hand side of this elegant, 18th century building, a holiday haven much appreciated overseas, and near to the outbuildings in which they live, Gilles-Baleria and Hugues-de-Salvador have recently built “L’Orangerie”.
This building blends in so well with the Hilguy estate that it is hard to believe it is but a few months since the last stones were laid.
They have created a warm, welcoming, elegant place, a boutique combining the best of contemporary interior decoration by Meridiani and Gervasoni as well as exclusive creators such as Vox-Populi and Céline-Wright.
Set out on the terrace are pottery from Uzès, Terres-d'Albine olive oil jars as well as the Dutch Anton-Damen’s terracotta table tops and garden furniture.
But, in keeping with the premises, that is not all as visitors, whilst pondering their purchases, can take tea, partake of a homemade pastry or even eat lunch, prepared by Hugues using fresh, local produce.
The beaches in Audierne Bay are but 10 minutes away.
Who can but adore the elegance, discretion and silence of Brittany?
