Now to the nitty-gritty. The Gite and Studio are let for the summer season(April to October) via our own web site and other holiday sites, one in particular was very good. They are let for between £300 and £400 per week and it is entirely possible for them to be let for the whole year if required. The Gite is being sold fully furnished with everything that is required crockery, cutlery, linen etc so that lettings can continue quickly for new owners if required. There is scope for further development by registering with Gites de France. "So why are you selling?" I hear you ask. Well, for health reasons and after ten years it is now time for us to truly retire and enjoy ourselves! So for the sum of 235,000 euros this could all be yours. If you are in a position to move quickly we are open to serious and sensible negotiation. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

HUELGOAT: Lost high in the Parc d’Armorique in central Finistère, the village of Huelgoat looks sleepy at first sight, and its lake peaceful. However, descend into the Argent Valley and you suddenly find yourself amidst a mass of magical mossy boulders that have stirred the Breton imagination in fabulous ways.

Slipping into a legendary world.

A beautiful old watermill stands at one end of Huelgoat’s lake, the latter built in the 18th century to help in the task of extracting silver lead from the valley here.

Take the slippery paths down beside the mill and you enter an amazingly secretive, green, rock-strewn world, which has inspired wild Arthurian and Christian myths.

One rung of steps leads to the so-called 'devil’s grotto' via an unnervingly narrow descent.

In another spot, the indentations in the rock are said to have served as the Virgin Mary’s cramped home ­– use your imagination to spot Jesus’s supposed cradle!

One fanciful story claims that the boulders were chucked here by a Celtic giant. Another says it was a grumpy Gargantua who threw the rocks around as a way of complaining about the nasty porridge he was served at Huelgoat.

Clearings with an outdoor theatre and a crêperie bring you back to some normality.

Deeper into Arthurian and Celtic camps.

Press further into the forest of Huelgoat (the place name means ‘high wood’ in Breton) and you pass the Grotte d’Artus, where Arthur was meant to have had a bed in the woods, before arriving at the Camp d’Artus. Legend has it that Arthur hid a hoard of treasure in this spot.

Archaeologists say that the ancient defences here long pre-date Arthurian times and were probably erected for the local Celtic tribe.

From Breton village to global village.

Come back to earth with a calming walk around the lake, appreciated by fishermen, or by wandering around the village square, lined with bars and shops, as well as the church.

Above the centre, at the Arborétum du Poërop, trails take you on a quick voyage around the world’s continents, via the thousands of trees and shrubs planted here, in a landscape with views over the typical central Finistère countryside.

We are English owners and are happy to discuss our property and help with information you may require if you wish to send us your landline telephone number.
