About Anne Colley
I have been visiting France for more years than I care to remember, I love it so much I decided to buy a house!
Anne Colley purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Anne Colley chose Saint-Berthevin-la-Tannière
As soon as we drove up the lane and saw Forgelle, we knew we had to have it. There was a roof, floors, windows and a front door but very little else! However, with lots of tender loving care and help from our friends we brought the property back to life. It is a very special place and I hope you love it as much as we do.
What makes this Cottage unique
Lots of character with the benefit of home comforts

Fabulous place in a picturesque quite location.
This property is just delightful if you want to experience true France. Located in a picturesque location with all necessary amenities not too far away. The property is ideal if your looking to travel around and explore the surrounding villages and towns.The property was clean and we would recommend this lovely place. A car is a necessity and the only down side is there was no oven just a BBQ so restricted our choice of cuisine when the weather was not with us. This would not put me off revisiting this quaint place. 😀
Agréable maison dans la campagne, proche de Fougères, Mont Saint Michel, Saint Malo, Mont Dol.....
Nous avons passé 5 jours merveilleux avec le soleil, la maison est confortable et agréable à vivre.
Petit regret, ne parlant pas l'anglais, le contact avec le correspondant a été un peu difficile.
A recommander en été
A visit to the Chateau at Fougeres is a must. There is a new Leisure Pool just outside the centre of Fougeres which is great fun for all the family. There is also the forest of Fougeres which is great for walking, cycling and swimming in the lake. The market town of St Hilaire du Harcouet is a 25 min drive away, Wednesday is market day and it's a really bustling market, well worth spending a few hours wandering around soaking up the atmosphere. Rennes is well worth a visit for both culture and shopping. Mayenne and Vire are also worth a visit. There are also a number lakes dotted around for swimming and fishing.
