    Description

    Apple Tree Cottage is one of four self catering cottages in Brittany that have been restored to provide modern conveniences whilst retaining all the charm of a typical French farmhouse.
    Leaving in lots of the original features, like granite walls and exposed oak beams.
    Set in 2 acres of secure gardens with views over undulating farmland.
    A perfect place for all the family to enjoy, children can play in the heated pool, while the parents relax under a tree with a good book and a glass of wine.

    This is an authentic french cottage full of character. The comfortable furnished lounge has arched granite door and windows, exposed oak beams and huge granite inglenook fireplace with a log burner.
    The well equipped kitchen has vaulted ceilings and double doors that lead to a private patio area, complete with garden furniture, sun canopy and BBQ. From there out to the shared gardens and pool area.
    On the 1st floor there are four bedrooms some with granite walls and exposed oak beams. There are two double en-suite bedrooms, a bunk bed room and a twin bedroom plus another shower room.

    There are two and a half acres of gardens with open views over undulating farmland.
    The communal patio area has a brick BBQ, the ideal place for parents to get to know one another, while the kids play. We have had many an enjoyable evening with a BBQ and a few drinks.
    The heated above ground pool is made of teak to fit in with the surroundings in the orchard. The pool is open from May - September.
    The gardens are the ideal place to either relax by the pool, have a picnic under a tree, or just sit and read a good book while sipping a glass a wine.
    There is a 14ft trampoline with safety nets, badminton, swings, boules pit, swing ball, football net, and basketball in the gardens, along with numerous games. In the covered veranda area there is table soccer, table tennis and a darts board. The gardens are large and safe enough for children to play.
    Just down the lane there is an 18 km Patrimoine walk through lovely countryside.

    Although we are in a quiet location, we are only 5 mins away from the village centre with its bar-tabac-restaurant-shop. And only 10 mins from Louvigne du Desert with its, shops, supermarkets and restaurants.
    Also nearby are attractions like Mont Saint Michel, water and floral parks, walking and cycle tracks, trout fishing, horse riding, canoeing, kayaking, Chateaux, and numerous places of interest.
    We are the ideal place for that weekend break, a house-hunting trip, that romantic getaway or that family holiday, group bookings also available.
    There really is something for everyone in this beautiful part of Brittany.
