Breton townhouse with huge garden
This is a spacious, comfortable, traditionally-built Breton house in the centre of a pleasant village in a rural setting. It is ideal for relaxing, and as a convenient base for exploring all that Northern Brittany has to offer, beaches, harbours, castles, prehistoric sites…. It provides practical accommodation for a family holiday, but also easily accommodates a couple, or two couples holidaying together.
Particularly appealing is the huge and secluded south-facing garden which is sheltered and sunny. Immediately to the back of the house is a decked area for dining al-fresco. This overlooks a sunny lawn, with a splendid palm tree and a very large fig tree providing shade at the hottest time of day. This part of the garden is fully enclosed and suitable for small children. Go through the gate and you come into the heather garden and orchard, and wilder parts beyond. Enjoy your aperitifs here under the shade of the apple trees.
The village of Pédernec has a post office, pub, hairdresser, small supermarket, boulangerie and pharmacy. The nearest town is Bégard, 5 minutes by car, with a wider variety of shops, supermarkets and banks. Guingamp, 11 kms away, has sites of historic interest, more shops, restaurants and hypermarkets.
Pédernec has excellent access to the main road network connecting Guingamp to Lannion and the Pink Granite Coast in the north, and via the N12 to St Brieuc in the east, and to Morlaix and Brest in Finisterre in the west.

These each have a double bed and look out over the square and the lovely old church, but modern double glazing makes the house very quiet. There is a folding cot and bedding for a toddler.
