Farmhouse in Brittany, France

Property Details of Brittany Farmhouse

Coet Sarre Bras - literally in Breton, large wood by the (river) Sarre, has probably existed for several hundred years. The current house, built of dressed granite has 1846 etched over the front door but the nearby 'cave' (cider store) is clearly much older as is a ruin attached to the large barn. It is likely that it was a functioning farm up until perhaps 15 -20 years ago with a grazing meadow behind the house surrounded by 40 acres or so of woodland belonging to the property. Everyone who comes to Coet comments on the tranquillity of this rural idyll. Although only 4 km from the pretty village of Melrand it is a haven of peace and quiet. The presence of the manor house next door removes any sense of total isolation. The environment is a nature lover's paradise. Deer inhabit the surrounding woods and birds of prey can often be seen circling on the thermals overhead. The cave is home to a colony of bats and a barn owl lives nearby. Foxes, red squirrels, hares and even salamanders have been spotted in the vicinity. The house itself has been extensively refurbished. It has a beautiful new country kitchen with all modern appliances including dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge, fridge freezer and oven. The huge living room is beautifully furnished, matching the original Breton furniture. The house sleeps up to 8 comfortably, in four rooms and has 3 bathrooms with 2 showers. There are plentiful games, books and maps, and a CD player.

Local Area Details


For many people the peace and quiet in a beautiful house in a stunning
environment will be enough but there is plenty to do in the vicinity.
Closest to hand are a series of hiking trails through the neighbouring woods and countryside, which are clearly marked. There is a circuit of historic chapels, which host art exhibitions in the summer. The area is renowned for its rivers - the Sarre that runs in the valley behind the house, and the nearby Blavet. The latter has towpaths - perfect for cycling, as well as canoeing and more sedate riverboat excursions from St. Nicholas des Eaux, some 10km away.

The village of Melrand has a number of bars and a very good restaurant "la
Tourelle". The owner's husband runs the adjacent butchers shop and so the
meat is always very good! There are small local shops including a
boulangerie/patisserie and the local garage is excellent. For supermarket
shopping there is an Intermarche at Bubry some 5 km away, where there is
also a poissonerie, whereas the nearby major town of Pontivy has extensive
shopping and many restaurants. Pontivy is only 20 km away on a direct and very quiet country road. Fishing licences can be obtained from the
Maison de la Peche in the town and there is also an ancient chateau to

20- 30 minutes north of Melrand is the largest lake in Brittany, Lake
Gueledan which offers bathing, sailing etc. and has a number of good
restaurants. The enchanting Gulf of Morbihan with its many islands is about 45 minutes southwest. The beautiful beaches of Southern Brittany are about the same distance away, as are the historic cities of Vannes and Auray. If you like contemporary history then the dramatic U-boat pens in Lorient are of interest.

Brittany has some fabulous golf course. The nearest, a nine hole course in the grounds of a ruined chateau (Rimaison) is only 20 minutes away. 40 - 50 minutes away are Val de Queven, Ocean Plomeur and St. Laurent - the latter hosting both a 9 and 18 hole course.
