The house is in a very pretty village of about 1500 inhabitants which is situated in the centre of Brittany, with beaches north and south no more than one hour away. The village is quite self-contained in that it has two primary schools, a supermarket, a baker's shop, a chemist, a post-office, three restaurants, four bars, three B&Bs, a garage-petrol station and a recently built sports centre. There is a doctor's surgery, nurses' practice and a fire brigade-first aid station. The village lake and many picturesque pathways provide the opportunity for walking and cycling off-road. About eight kilometers away is a large town with all the facilities; several large supermarkets, clinics and a hospital, churches, primary and secondary schools, boutiques, etc.
The two nearest airports are Rennes and Dinard - both just over one hour away and the two nearest ferry terminals are Roscoff and St Malo also just over one hour away.
