About Mike and Danièle
We came to Brittany in 2016 after having spent most of our lives in Dorset. My name is Daniele. I am French and have returned to my place of birth after 42 years in England where, naturally, I taught French. My husband, Mike, is English and was also a teacher, but who now is following the more noble calling of brewing British beers in France. We both speak French and English and are able to offer French lessons at all levels. We are always available next door for help and advice.
Mike and Danièle purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Mike and Danièle chose Béganne
We chose this house because of its perfect location. Situated deep in the gorgeous Breton countryside while still close to countless tourist attractions such as fabulous beaches such as Damgan and Pen Lan. We are only a few minutes drive from the famous medieval village of Rochefort-en-Terre, voted the most beautiful village in the whole of France in 2016. A few minutes drive South will take you to the banks of the river Villaine including the Ports of Foleux and La Roche-Bernard, both famous for their outstanding beauty. To the West, you will find the impressive walled city and medieval port of Vannes which gives access to the most stunning location of the region, the "Golfe Du Morbihan", an enormous gulf with countless beautiful islands with their own warm micro climate and numerous pristine beaches. Throughout the region, lovers of megaliths can enjoy visiting some stunning neolithic sites such as Carnac and the island of Gavrinis.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our house is a traditional "longere", a long farmhouse, entirely renovated and consisting of 3 distinct dwellings: our house and 2 "gites". We only have 2 neighbours, so the place is very quiet apart from bird songs and the occasional barking dog. The house itself has been lovingly restored and has kept many original features. The huge garden stands on a hill which means the view from the terrace is breathtaking. You can see the fields and woods miles out and enjoy the most spectacular sunsets while having your evening drink on warm summer evenings. A decked area and the lower part of the garden can be made available to dog-friendly guests (see photos).

A lovely cottage in a great location, great hosts!
We enjoyed our short stay in the well appointed and very comfortable cottage. Our hosts welcomed us earlier than originally planned and showed us around the cottage. They are a friendly and helpful couple who made us very welcome, we will be returning later in the year. The kitchen are is very functional, the living room is perfect for us and the bedroom generous. We slept wonderfully. I would recommend our hosts and the cottage to anyone looking for a peaceful stay in a beautiful part of Brittany. Thank you for letting us stay, we loved it.
Entspannung in ländlicher Umgebung
Umgeben von (Getreide-)Feldern, Wiesen und Wäldern bietet die Unterkunft nicht nur Ruhe und Erholung, sondern mit PKW (!) eine Vielzahl an Möglichkeiten: unterschiedliche Restaurants und (Super-)Märkte in der Nähe, wunderschöne Ausflugsziele in allen Richtungen und gut erreichbare natürliche Sandstrände.
Der bretonische Stil des Landhauses lässt wenig Licht in den Wohnbereich, was für uns bei großer Hitze recht angenehm war. Der geschmackvoll eingerichtete Schlafraum unter dem Dach ist sehr hell und geräumig.
Mike und Danièle sind sehr interessante, freundliche Gastgeber, die im Haus nebenan bei Fragen jederzeit ansprechbar und um das Wohl ihrer Gäste bemüht waren.
Wir haben eine entspannte Woche bei ihnen verbracht.
Petit coin de paradis au fin fond de la Bretagne ! <3
Nos hôtes nous ont accueilli de façon très chaleureux. Le logement est très agréable, spacieux, et parfaitement salubre. Je le recommande vivement pour toutes personnes qui souhaiteraient être dépaysées et ressourcées ! Idéal pour des vacances reposantes dans la campagne bretonne ^^. Nous ne manquerons pas de revenir... ;)
