Updated on Jan 14, 2018

Stone Cottage in own beautiful gardens. Clean, modern interior with character.

Located in: Nivillac
Welcome to your holiday home in France where you can immediately relax. The beautiful open countryside unfolds directly from the gardens giving a feeling of being deep in nature. Deer visit the garden regularly and wild boar are to be found in the surrounding areas. Birds fill the trees large and small and fill the air with their chatter. There are nearby beaches and coastal walks either along the ocean or in Le Golfe du Morbihan amongst hundreds of little islands scattered in an inland sea of endless variety. The easy way to get a feel for the Golfe is by boat or by spending a day on one of the larger islands. You will be enchanted by little villages of stone as you discover this region of plenty with its Castles and medieval walled towns, traditional crafts, fresh food markets to explore and savour. La Petite Maison is private and looks out over gardens and lovely undulating countryside. The ancient 'lavoir' which was used to wash clothes by hand, and the 'four a pain', where bread was baked weekly, are slowly being incorporated into a private corner of the garden where you can sleep under the shade of the trees, a toe in the cool water of the pond. The ducks visit occasionally but the butterfly and dragon fly are there all the time exploring the mixture of wild and cultivated plants which we are trying to encourage. The 'source' which was used for drinking water in days gone by, gently flows down to the river Villaine, about 10 minutes on foot, which then finds its way to La Roche Bernard, a medieval town perched on a rock over a wide river, steeply banked and draped in trees as it wanders on to the sea. You might explore the Villaine on an old Oyster barge, or enjoy an evening cruise while you are wined and dined. The barrage in Arzal keeps the river full and gives plenty of space for all the sailing boats to tie up when they return from the open sea through the lock separating the fresh from the salty water, and the tidal from the non tidal estuary. Many boats come and visit from other nearby ports such as La Trinité or the fishing ports of La Turballe and Le Crosic.
Gérande is one of the medieval towns which is on the edge of the natural reserve park of La Briére, a haven for birds and other wildlife. There are salt pans, canals through the marshes offering bird watching boat trips, there are the finest sands in France at La Baule. You could indeed be very busy, but don't forget the relaxation on the terrace of your Petite Maison as the sun sinks and the warm dusk brings out the little pipistrelle bats.
We've just added a little 'garden room' set away from the house and low down under the oaks. It's an old reclaimed stable with it's original timbers and open sides. It will have table and chairs, a pizza oven, candles, views of the sunsets, birdsong and more.
Our permaculture inspired garden is progressing well, with endless additions of edibles and aromatics, even some more typically tropical plants having a go at making a home here. You won't find it overly tidy but it's perfectly ordered by nature and productive in terms of providing for we humans. The watercress pond is flourishing, depending on season of course, and I'm hoping for a show of water lilies this summer from the bottom pond.
