Set within quiet private woodland within the picturesque Finistere region of Brittany, this quirky little house has been decorated with love and would be the perfect base for a romantic retreat.
If you’re looking for simple peaceful living and a heart-warming romantic atmosphere then La Maison des Artisans is just the place. At home you can play petanque and enjoy a glass of wine as you take in the view. At the bottom of the hill there is a lovely old patisserie and a tabac serving delicious coffee. And nearby there are food markets, bistros, stunning coast paths, sandy beaches and opportunities for walking, cycling, fishing and surfing. Can you imagine anything more enchanting?
The house is situated in the south of the Parc Naturel Regional d’Armorique, just 2km from Chateaulin with its myriad restaurants, shops and bars. Medieval Quimper, the capital of Finistere, is a 20 minute drive, and the sandy beaches and quaint fishing villages of the Brittany coastline are easily accessible. The magnificent coastal path of the Bay of Douarnenez is a must for exploring.
Roscoff ferry port is just an hour’s drive away and there are regular ferries to here from Plymouth. Alternatively you could travel from Portsmouth to St Malo (2.5 hours from the house) or from Poole to Cherbourg (4 hours from the house). Brest airport is just half an hour away.

The house has one bedroom, a bathroom, a lounge and a kitchen and it has been filled throughout with handmade crafted features and paintings which give it a warm French bohemian feel. It is best suited to a couple but there is a large sofa bed downstairs which can accommodate an extra guest.
The house is not overlooked and is set within its own woodland with gorgeous views along the River Aulne. The pretty town of Port Launay is just at the bottom of the hill.
