We have returned to Brittany! We used to have a cottage in Plouer Sur Rance, and after 10 years it seemed a good idea to have a change of scene; so we bought and restored a lovely 12th Century house in Languedoc - but, as lovely as it was, we missed Brittany - the beaches, the people, the atmosphere, the markets, the music, the seafood .. And we were fortunate to find an exceptional cottage, at the Chatelier lock, on the River Rance, between St. Malo and Dinan - a dream come true. Indeed my kids used to play by the lock keeper's cottage when they were young - 35 years ago!

Now called Coot Cottage (at the time there were hundreds of them, just a few at present!) we have had a few months of restoration, and the duckling has become a swan!! The house is opposite the marina, the views are stunning, and there are super walks along the River in both directions. And next door is a lovely restaurant/bar (Lyvet Gourmand) - the icing on the cake!

The cottage is on three floors, top floor has a lovely bedroom overlooking the River, and pretty bathroom. The middle floor is the 'living room/ dining room/ kitchen'. Cosy and stylish, with a woodburner for Winter. Well-equpped country style kitchen, with electric cooker, dresser, fridge, microwave, (no dishwasher). French doors opens to a small balcony, full of flowers and a view to die for! A stable door leads to the garden. Comfy seating and a lot of original art, TV, music etc.

The ground floor is newly restored with an olive wood staircase to the kitchen. The room is arranged as a 'salon/ bedroom', very light and bright with a lovely collection of art in bright primary colours and cushions and accessories from around the World. There are two comfortable single beds and a new modern shower room and utility area with a washing machine.

The garden is large, full of shrubs, with a wild garden at the far end for butterflies, bees and birds to enjoy. There is a gas BBQ, and a firepit for chilly Summer evenings. And for a final touch, the whole garden is lit at night with dozens of white and blue solar lights ....

STOP PRESS! Just built! We have just added a stunning decked terrace at the back of the cottage - a super spot for breakfast (and cocktails!)
