a hamlet composed of a 17th century manor house, 4 cottages and a small inn
Right in the centre of this historic Trégor region, equidistant from the tourist towns of Lannion and Guingamp, set midway along the Trégor coast, with Perros-Guirec to Paimpol in one direction and Plestin-les-Grèves to Saint-Quay-Portrieux in the other, this hamlet is strategically placed for exploring the region’s main tourist sites and its many fine sandy beaches. Nestling at the end of a no-through road, far from any housing, in peaceful, pastoral countryside, looking down on a small stream, it resembles an envied, remote retreat.
The south-west side of the “V” is a small, gently sloping wood bordered by a stream, babbling over stones.
Whilst the south-east side is composed of a garden, where freshly mown grass and several swings form a playground for children and adults alike.
In the centre of this inverted letter stands the hamlet, crossed by a drive. On one side, the stately house, a modest old local manor house and, on the other, a small inn, with a south-facing terrace, sheltered from the breeze. Then four cottages, their woodwork painted in the pleasant, bright hues of astonishing colours. A three-hundred-year-old walnut tree keeps guard at the end of the drive.
The manor house
An old building once part of a stately farm or manor: the distinction is sometimes so subtle in these old local stones that, in doubt, it is given this title.
The entrance hall is vast and the trough, characteristic of the Trégor region where the leaven fermented, is still there. Next to the kitchen, a lovely bright and comfortable living room, heated by a superb traditional stove, set in the hearth of the fireplace. In the summer it is cool, in the autumn freshly picked chestnuts can be eaten. On the other side of the entrance hall, a cosier lounge with its monumental fireplace.
This level features the classical layout of a 17th century Trégor manor house, with two large bedrooms, on either side of the landing. One of the bedrooms has its own bathroom and toilet.
Three bedrooms are laid out under cathedral ceilings.
The manor house’s right-angled section
This small section, set at right angles to the manor house, enables a significant extension of the living space to be envisaged. The conversion is already well underway and the interior sand-blasted, granite stone walls already enhance the wonderful stylistic authenticity of these two levels. The plumbing is already laid on.
Although this inn stands facing the manor house, it is in no way overshadowed. A large reception room, with an impressive old fireplace will give free rein to the new owners’ imagination as regards its use: a restaurant room, a reception area or an independent section for a self-employed person wishing to work from home. Its large mezzanine could be used for additional table space or for a bedroom in a dominant position, should the house be used for accommodation purposes. A professional kitchen as well as bathroom and toilet facilities are already in situ. it also boasts a gas-fired cooking range with an oven, an electric oven and a professional dishwasher.

The swallows’ house
Every year the swallows return to their little house in the spring. The most pastoral of the hamlet’s cottages loyal guests, souvenir of the premises. When on the wing, they bring joy and the spring.
Planted with 90 apple trees, this orchard is immaculately kept and produces 3,000 litres of cider (or apple juice) per year.
This property has everything for those seeking to accommodate guests, offering holiday rental units, bed & breakfast as well as meals, not forgetting the local cider. They can move straight in and get down to work, guests could be knocking on the door even before the beds are made!
Furniture, a professional kitchen in the little inn, three vehicle entrances depending on where guests are staying.
Unless members and two or three generations of a large family decide to settle here, their roots going as deep as those of the walnut tree at the end of the drive.
This unique property is one that is imagined, dreamed of and hoped for; here it exists.
