La Belle Maison is approached through its own private south-west facing enclosed garden which benefits from the sun during the day and on into summer evenings. There is a built-in chimney barbecue, hardwood table with chairs and parasol in a sheltered outdoor dining space, plus two reclining sun loungers. Wonderful sunsets over the nearby forest can be enjoyed, and night skies clear of light pollution - ideal for star gazing. As well as borders of flowering shrubs, the garden has cherry, apple, hazelnut and greengage trees and 2 herb planters - all of which our guests are welcome to harvest.

A traditional Breton glazed porch protects the front door which opens into a central hallway which has the original terracotta floor tiles; there are coat-hooks, a full length mirror and a stocked bookcase.
The dual aspect kitchen, is a lovely bright and airy room overlooking the garden. As well as the working area of the kitchen, which includes a built-in oven and hob, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, there is a dining table with four chairs, plus a dresser for crockery and a corner unit to store cleaning equipment out of sight.
In the separate sitting room, which has chestnut parquet flooring with carpet square to make it cosy, there are 2 comfortable 2 seater sofas, a wood burner with a top-box that is ideal for simmering casseroles, warming plates or mulling wine in cooler months. The television receives UK freesat channels and there is also a DVD player.
Further down the hall, opposite each other there are two equal sized bedrooms; on the left is a west facing double bedroom; the large window has far reaching views to the distance forest. The twin bedroom opposite benefits from the morning sun through its east facing window. All the beds are two metres long and both rooms have plenty of storage space, an easy chair and bedside lamps
Finally there is a spacious shower room which has a large basin set in a vanity unit, an enclosed shower cubicle, wc, and heated towel radiator.

Plessala has a bar-cafe, a supermarket with good butchers counter and an excellent bakers, on thursday mornings there is a small street market featuring fresh fish & shell-fish and locally grown fruit & vegetables. At the edge of the town is a park which has a lake for trout fishing. In the surrounding area there are several larger towns that have regular markets and a good selection of places to eat out, as well as seasonal street festivals and brocante stalls.

There is an indoor swimming pool complex in Loudeac and a summer outdoor Lido in La Cheze. The sports centre beside the River Lie has kayaks and cycles for hire and a riding stables in Loudeac Forest organises accompanied pony treks.

At just over an hours drive from St Malo ferry port and Rennes airport, La Belle Maison is an easy to reach holiday destination and a great touring base for this beautiful region where medieval market towns, castles, forests, lakes as well as stunning beaches, fashionable marinas and several golf courses provide attractions for many tastes.

We offer a year round under occupancy discount when 2 guests choose to use just one of the bedrooms to reflect our reduced laundry & utility costs - this is available throughout the year, including during the peak summer season.

We are completely flexible about change-over days in all seasons, for longer stays we offer 10% discount off 2nd & 3rd weeks booked, and are happy to accept 4, 5 & 6 night breaks out of peak summer season. In 2024 our gite is available for rent from early February until early November.

Our home in Brittany is in the same hamlet as La Belle Maison meaning we are on-hand to assist and answer questions if required but we take care not intrude on our guests.

What a wonderful location for this holiday.

By Issac on 15-Jul-2023

Quiet location, a few cars passing by and some walkers. The house itself is fully equipped: the fridge is large enough for a supply of groceries. Hostess Penny and husband Ray are very approachable for all sorts of questions! No lack of comfort. The garden and surroundings are beautiful and well maintained! Recommended for peace seekers and hikers!

Tranquility personified

By Maureen Treadwell on 08-Apr-2023

Such a lovely cottage and hosts. Penny was very welcoming and friendly, taking time to show us around and explain how all appliances worked. Beautiful welcoming package of French bread, cheese, biscuits spread wine awaited us on arrival! The cottage had everything we needed including a very comfortable bed. Few rainy days whilst there but the cottage had a great log burner which was so cozy in the evenings with a glass of wine, I can imagine that a winter stay here would be as enjoyable as one in spring/ summer. I loved there was books to read and board games in the cottage for all ages. This was a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Whilst nestled in the peaceful countryside it was only a 10 minute drive to the nearest village for groceries, fresh baked goods etc. I can’t recommend Penny and this lovely cottage enough and will definitely stay here again.

A perfect getaway.

Perfect spot. So peaceful and quiet. Literally just the birds singing. Beautiful countryside. Kind, pleasant and very helpful owners. Cottage had everything we needed. Warm, comfortable just right for two.
