Ty ar Rozenn in Finistère, a cottage in Brittany: Ty ar Rozenn exterior

Rural location, 3 bedrooms, sleeps 6, 3 miles from picturesque town

Lovingly renovated Breton cottage, surrounded by farmland and set in the valley of the River Aulne/Nantes-Brest Canal, but only 3 miles from the picturesque town of Châteauneuf-du-Faou.

The cottage is about 100 metres from the river and has access to the broad winding towpath, which is ideal for walking and cycling. The river also provides opportunities for fishing and generally messing about on the water.

The glorious sandy beaches of the west coast of Finistère are less than 30 miles away and the north and south coasts within an hour's drive. The cottage is ideally placed to explore the beautiful scenery and picturesque cities and villages of Finistère and adjoining departments, yet only 50 miles from the nearest ferryport at Roscoff.

The accommodation is thoughtfully furnished throughout. The open plan ground floor has a fully equipped kitchen at one end, with a large dining table that easily seats six, and a living area with comfortable sofas and a traditional Breton fireplace with a woodburning stove. For entertainment there is a TV for playing DVDs and videos and an extensive selection of videos and DVDs, some light reading and various boardgames.

From the sitting room a couple of steps lead up towards the ground floor double bedroom and bathroom, with w.c., washbasin and a small bath with shower over.

On the first floor there is another double bedroom, a twin bedded room, and a bathroom, with w.c., washbasin and shower.

Bedding and linen are provided, but visitors are asked to bring their own towels. All the bedrooms are spacious and airy, with plenty of room to accommodate a travelcot, and they all have views along the tranquil river valley.

Outside there is a garden with barbecue and patio furniture, where you may relax with a glass of chilled wine and watch the sun go down behind the tree-lined river valley. There is off road parking for two cars.

Visitors are welcome to borrow our family bicycles (four adults’ and two children's) and may like to use them to visit the restaurants and bars that are within an easy cycle ride both up or down river.

Châteauneuf-du-Faou is a picturesque town poised over the Aulne valley. Here you will find all the usual range of shops, bakeries, banks, restaurants and 3 large supermarkets, as well as the Penn ar Pont leisure centre, where a variety of boats may be hired. The town was once home to the symbolist painter Paul Sérusier, whose murals adorn the church, and continues its patronage of the arts by hosting a jazz festival every August; there are frequent art exhibitions in the town and at the nearby Château de Trévarez, whose gardens are worth a visit in their own right.

Other local attractions include horse riding at Meros and golf at Carhaix.

The cottage is in a tranquil rural location. There is one neighbouring house whose friendly English owners act as caretakers to the cottage. The only passing traffic is the yellow “poste” van each morning.
