La Longere: An idyllic Breton stone cottage

Fancy ambling the day away on a pretty swimming pool terrace, surrounded by a verdant expanse of fields? Once the novelty of Breton peace and tranquility has worn off, you could enjoy a lively day in the bustling world-renowned sailing mecca of La Trinite-sur-Mer. At the stone cottage of La Longere, just 4 kilometres from the town of Languidic, tossups between rural peaceful bliss and pulsating Breton culture are there for the taking.

This characterful four bedroom, four bathroom villa can sleep up to eight guests.
This traditional stone ‘longere’ has been restored to an exceptionally high standard. Cosy bedrooms lie under chunky eaves, each furnished with luxury fittings and furnishings and equipped with their own en-suite bathroom. The rustic, cottage theme, tastefully interwoven with accessories and features that radiate style and sophistication, is carried throughout the whole of the house.

A stunning country kitchen adorned in calming pale tones and homely wooden dining table certainly provides the ideal hub to rustle up and devour some delicious Breton dishes. La Longere’s living room is equally as inviting with an impressive wood burning stove being the welcoming focal point of the room.

Though as pleasant and inviting is La Longere’s interior, is its exterior. The countryside that surrounds this quaint stone cottage is as picturesque as vistas come, with meadows, flowers, fields and trees distending as far as the eye can see.
Though as much as there is to do and see right on your doorstep, there’s much more to La Longere’s grounds other than the vista.

A private pool provides fun, entertainment, exercise and the chance to cool down for all the family. A characterful apple tree casts a shadow of shade over La Longere’s garden, an idyllic spot to lay back with a book and escape the hot rays of the sun during the summer months. For additional luxury, why not relax in the property’s hot tub whilst gazing up at the vivid Breton stars shining brightly overhead?

Outside of La Longere’s grounds an exciting world of sea, culture and charm awaits you. The sandy beaches of Quiberon and Carnac are just 20 minutes away from the house. If you consider yourself to be a sailing enthusiast, a trip to the famous sailing port of La Trinte-Sur-Mer is definitely recommended. Though even if you not into sailing, with its quaint narrow streets and parish church that has an altar which dates back to the 17th century, the appeal of La Trinte-Sur-Mer certainly extends beyond being a world-class sailing hub.

Yes, it’s safe to say there’s plenty going on at La Longere and this vibrant region of Brittany.
