Converted water mill
Nestling in a quiet hamlet in the heart of Brittany, this pretty 16th-century stone-built cottage and converted water mill are set amidst acres of idyllic grounds, complete with river, mill pond and a large stocked lake with trout (free fishing available for guests). Lovingly restored and traditionally decorated by the British owners, incorporating beamed ceilings and log burners. The quaint mill house "Le Moulin" with its millstream trickling alongside, provides cosy accommodation for two, with views across the mill pond and lakes from its rear patio, while the spacious "Maison de Niziau" features exposed stonework and a pretty patio overlooking the river. The surrounding countryside is perfect for walking and cycling. The historic town of Pontivy, with its château set on the River Blavet, weekly market and restaurants serving traditional Breton fayre is 12km away. Also within easy reach are the lake of Guerlédan and slightly further afield, Mûr de Bretagne, with their beaches and watersports. The coast is easily accessible, with the Golfe du Morbihan, inner sea, well worth exploring. Carnac is renowned for its rows of 2000 standing stones which constitute the most important prehistoric site in Europe.
