About Martin & Esther Selway
La Ville au Tady is owned by Martin, Esther, Beth & Meg and we live in the UK. After many happy summer holidays in France, we decided to buy our own holiday cottage in Brittany. After many months of property hunting, we discovered a traditional longère in the countryside and fell in love with it. We feel very lucky to own such a beautiful old house, and invite you to share it when we are not holidaying there ourselves. We believe there is an ethical dimension to owning a second home, so we price our weeks reasonably and aim to have the cottage occupied for most of the year. In this way we can help contribute to the local economy by employing our cleaner and gardener, and help generate income for local businesses. We encourage you to use the local village stores whenever possible. We would prefer to reduce our prices for late availability rather than remain empty, so provide a 25% discount for arrivals within 30 days.
Martin & Esther Selway purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Martin & Esther Selway chose Guegon
Our cottage has been used as a holiday home for many years, and so presents a fairly unique opportunity to stay in a traditional longère that retains many of its original features. The exterior of the longère is much the same as when it was built in 1868. It is a traditional farm house of the region, and the internal renovations have preserved the character with exposed beams and fireplace hearth consisting of a massive granite stone. The cottage is located in a quiet rural hamlet of four properties, and yet is just five minutes from the local village with boulangerie, village store, and bars. We are ten minutes from Josselin, one of the best small towns in Brittany.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is our holiday home, and it is furnished and equipped with all the homely touches that will make it feel like you are a guest staying in a friends house, rather than a paying customer in a commercial holiday property. We invite you to share our books, our games, and our bikes. When we holiday at La Ville au Tady we love doing so many different things! These are some of our favourites - countryside walks; swimming in the nearby open air pool or lake; cycling along the quiet country lanes; shopping for fresh local produce at Josselin market; picnic lunches in the sunny garden; exploring local towns and villages; meals out at one of the many good restaurants in Josselin; trips to the beach; or else just relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book in the garden.
