About Helen and Carl

Helen and Carl lived in South Devon for many years before moving to Brittany in 2012. We have worked together in the Tourist Industry for many years and we love welcoming guests and sharing this beautiful place with them.

We are both musicians and we enjoy taking part in local events and festivals. Our love of music has been a great asset with integration in the local community.

Helen and Carl purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Helen and Carl chose Saint-Mayeux

We fell in love with this beautiful Breton Longere at first sight. We have been visiting Brittany for many years - often 2 or 3 times a year. We moved here in April 2012 and we now live here in beautiful Brittany full time.

The 200 year old farmhouse with stone longere set in 2/3 acre of beautiful gardens simply entranced us. It is just 10 minutes walk from the pretty little Breton village of St Mayeux, yet there is virtually no passing traffic and most days the only sounds are the birds and bees.

Perhaps the most beautiful feature is the attractive enclosed garden. The rural location is so peaceful and at night-time we have no light pollution so the stars are wonderful to see.

Situated in the centre of Brittany we are ideally placed for visiting the many splendours of this wonderful region of France. The stunning Lac de Guerledan is just 10 minutes away for sailing, cycling and walking or just relaxing on one of the three sandy beaches.

What makes this cottage unique

Rural, peaceful location with stunning countryside views.

Spacious and comfortable accommodation, fully equipped to a high standard.

The wonderful garden is a joy to relax in. It is a mature garden with many trees and shrubs. There is a sunny terrace and plenty of trees to sit in the shade of whilst enjoying a glass of wine or beer.

Plenty of tables and chairs provide the perfect setting for eating al fresco in the long summer evenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Le Boterff is a delight! My husband and I had only intended to visit for a one-off week’s holiday, but, by the third day, we were already discussing our return. Located deep in the Breton countryside, a short walk from the sleepy village of St Mayeux, it is the original 'get away from it all' location. The only sound you hear is birdsong. If a car passes by, it is an event. On the first morning, we even saw deer, from our bedroom window. Having said that, if you do want to get out and explore, it is within easy reach of the coast and major tourist attractions. Our friendly, helpful English hosts were happy to give advice and directions, They really love Brittany, and their enthusiasm is infectious.

For our next visit we want to return to nearby Pontivy market, we just want to try our hand at cooking some of the gorgeous local produce. Thank you Carl, Helen, Kevin and Lisa. See you, again, next year!

Farmhouse gite with rural tranquility set in a lovely garden near Lake Guerlédan
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

Super, large house in a lovely quiet area.

  • 5 of 5

The description is accurate. The gite is large downstairs, a fantastic feeling of space, upstairs is smaller but still feels big. The kitchen is big and well equipped. It was all nice and clean. We enjoyed being able to play on the lawn, and explore the grounds, and the lane was perfect of longboarding, with a super long downhill! Really easy to walk to the village to buy bread every morning, we rarely met a single car! The owners were away, so we met with the caretakers, Kevin and Lisa, who were very nice. Its location meant we could drive out and visit north or south Brittany. Enjoyed Lorient German WWII Submarine base, Binic beach, and the Gorges. And, of course the lake where we swam and went paddleboarding. All in all, a super week! Thank you!
