Reconnect with Nature

30 acres of grounds offers tremendous sense of space and another dimension to your holiday in Brittany. Whether you want to relax, walk, talk, watch nature, paint, draw, photograph the wildlife, forage for mushrooms, picnic or just sit back and listen to the birdsong with a good book and the optional glass of wine. Parents can watch the ‘little ones’ explore, play or build a den whilst their imaginations run wild. With zero light pollution a spot of stargazing on a clear night is a must. Best of all, the grounds are literally on your doorstep.


Acres of lawns on which to relax and on a hot summer’s day the plethora of trees provide cooler shaded areas giving respite from the intense sun. For the ‘little ones’ lawns are a perfect place to play, run and tumble; there’s also a slide, seesaw and swing set.


20 acres of woodland to explore via a myriad of sylvan pathways; walking in the woodland stimulates the sense of sight, sound, smell and well-being.


Stroll along the mown pathway, gently run a hand through the tall grasses, see a profusion of butterflies and wildflowers. Listen to birdsong over the gentle hum of flying insects, punctuated by a rasping cricket.

  • Spent a wonderful month in Hazel Cottage. Couetilliec, is a very special tranquil place, situated in beautiful Breton Countryside. The property was well equipped and very comfortable, with a wooden deck which overlooked the lawn and the forest beyond.

  • There are many beautiful places to explore within an hour's drive in all directions, though Couetilliec is so comfortable you might not want to leave!
