Mo๋lan-Sur-Mer - 3 cottages
Two renovated traditional semi-detached Breton houses sleeping 4 & 6
And the small stone cottage Ti Forn sleeping 4
With these properties it is all about location, location, location and as per the name of the nearest town it is only 7 minute's drive from the beaches:
Kerfany Beach is only 7 minute's drive and this is typical of the little bays dotted around the coastline
The two semi-detached houses are of identical size (they are split exactly in two) but Ti Braz sleeps 6 (two double - one downstairs, and one twin room) and Ty Bihan sleeps 4 (one double, one twin). All bedrooms have hanging space, storage and sinks. Each have a shower room on the first floor.
The kitchens are well equipped with a fridge, microwave, dishwasher, oven and hob, toaster, kettle and coffee maker. They also have their own huge back gardens, divided by a hedge, with views over the some of the surrounding 40 hectares of woodland and fields. Garden furniture and BBQs are provided as is a communal washing machine in an outhouse.
Ti Bihan has two rooms downstairs, kitchen and lounge area and two sets of stairs to the different bedrooms. Ty Braz has one open plan lounge, kitchen diner, because the other room is the downstairs bedroom. There is only one set of stairs here. Both have TV, DVD and CD players.
Ti Bihan's Dining/Kitchen and a typical bedroom. bright and airy.
The detached cottage Ti Forn is smaller and has an open plan downstairs with kitchen area (four ring hob, top oven, dishwasher etc). The lounge has a TV and DVD player (so bring your own DVD's), and dining area with table and chairs. Upstairs there is one double and one twin room. The small family bathroom is downstairs and has a bath, toilet and sink. Bed linen not included, but can be hired.
Outside it has a lovely private garden.
To get to the houses, there is a lane from the main road, approximately one kilometre long which takes you past the entrance to the 15th century exclusive manoir hotel, where you will be made welcome if you drop in for a drink at their bar (no restaurant) which will take you about a two minute walk. The grounds are extensive, and they welcome people to stroll around the woodlands and fields. There is also a fast running stream running through the land.

While waiting a few moments for the owner to arrive, I stood in the courtyard and the only sounds I heard were the birdsong and one neigh from the horses and a new foal in the field. This is a really beautiful tranquil setting, but yet the beaches and restaurants are within quick and easy reach.
We loved the cottage and Morgann was lovely. We will certainly come back one day. Thanks again for the very efficient service RL, Cheshire 2011
This is a cycling and rambling paradise. The local Mairie has mapped out routes especially for both, which are fully marked, mapped and full of interesting things fauna and flora, castles, ruins megaliths, fountains, mills..... from the country to the sea - all 90 kms of cycling circuits and 100 kms of rambling routes! Not to mention exploring the hectares which come with the house.... Of course there is always the beaches and all the things that usually come with those, swimming, canoeing, boating, fishing and the list goes on.
