From the North East of England my family purchased this property when I was only 12 years old. We fell in love with France and especially Brittany while visited lots of regions in France as a family on summer holidays, we loved the quietness and rural area of Brittany best.
Lorraine purchased this Cottage in 1997
Why Lorraine chose Taupont
We found Josselin, one of the close towns, so charming with it's beautiful chateau and quaint shops most appealing and the walks that can be made for miles along the Nantes Brest canal quiet and calming. The southern Brittany coast is only about 30-45 minutes drive from our cottage and the cotes sauvage is a great attraction. Most of all the roads are so incredibly quiet and a delight to drive on, no queues and quite refreshing.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our cottage is fairly remote and private with only a farm about 200metres away. There is no passing traffic to speak of and the large garden is super for ball games or just soaking up the sun. There is so much wildlife round and about and the trees around the house are home to many birds including owls at night. The house itself is also very old and quaint with a huge inglenook fireplace, old wooden spiral staircase to the first floor and boasts having been built in 1666 above the entrance door beam.
