As featured in French Entrée and Living France magazines, Fuchsia Cottage is a delightful 16th century Breton self-catering gîte with its own private south facing garden in a peaceful hamlet in the unique Blavet Valley countryside with no through road. A tranquil haven in easy reach of the many sandy beaches (30-45 min), places of interest, activities & medieval towns of Southern Brittany.
Pools open from 1 May to 30 September. And they are heated!
Fuchsia Cottage has its own private garden with BBQ and stunning views over the valley and heated pools. The charming oak-beamed lounge with granite fireplace resonates with history, has a well equipped modern kitchen and is comfortable & well furnished with 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 shower rooms (one en-suite).
We provide, free of charge, for guests of both our Gites in Southern Brittany:

There are 4 acres of attractive communal gardens with two 6 meter HEATED pools, a pine forest & incredible views of the forested valley with walking routes directly into the countryside. The cottage has charming oak-beamed lounges with granite fireplace and is comfortable & well furnished with spacious bedrooms. The expansive grounds include a children's’ playhouse, climbing frame with badminton, table tennis, mini football net in the summer months! The pools enjoy full sun morning to late evening and are securely fenced & locked for peace of mind. The communal grounds and laundry are shared with our other Gîte, Wisteria Cottage, which can sleep up to 10. The perfect place for an idyllic holiday and to enjoy a true taste of Breton culture!
This really is our difference: most holiday makers only have one or two weeks in which to enjoy their holiday in this culturally rich area. So that you get the best from your holiday we have compiled a unique information pack covering everything ( well, we hope it's everything - we have been running our business here for over 8 years but are always excited when we find something new!). Our guests have nick-named it the "Bible" which goes everywhere! In addition, we provide an events listing on arrival covering all the local events, markets and brocantes (second hand markets). We have a small cottage in the main gardens and are also on hand for any additional help that you may require, if you so wish. See our website for more information.
Nestled in the beautiful countryside within easy reach (about 30 to 45 minutes) of the many wonderful sandy beaches of Southern Brittany or inland lakes & waterways, the hamlet of Le Crann is an easy 1 km walk or bicycle ride (on one of our bikes) to the small village of St Yves Bubry, with its traditional French bar and grocery shop. And if you fancy time out from cooking, there are many child-friendly restaurants nearby. The delightful river beach at Minezan with rustic bar nestled beside the lock and the popular animated museum of 16th century Poul Fetan are both a 10 minute drive away. For shopping and restaurants there is the charming village of Bubry (10 min), the market town of Baud (20 minutes away), medieval Hennebont with its beautiful floral displays, amazing Thursday market and medieval festival (20 min). There is so much to see or do it is difficult to know where to start: whether it be beaches, water sports or other activities, to see the megalithes at the world heritage site at Carnac or the historic towns of Vannes, Josselin, Pontivy, Hennebont, Pontivy, Auray, Port Louis & Lorient to name but a few. See our website for our Hidden Gems too - those delightful places you just don't normally find without local knowledge.
Within 15 minutes of the main motorway, Le Crann gives easy access to the delights of Southern Brittany. A car is essential. We can be reached from the Ferry Ports of Roscoff (2h), St Malo (2h), Caen (3h30) Cherbourg (3h50) and the Airports of Lorient (30min), Rennes (1h30), Nantes (2h), Dinard (2h), Brest (2h)
Holiday in style: A local chef can provide delicious home cooked meals, simply heat up and enjoy!
