Description from owner


Stang Korvenn (an ancient Breton name) is a traditional stone built long house or "longere" comprising a large farmhouse and this attached but separate Cottage, "Gite du Vert Rivage" which sleeps up to 5 people in 2 bedrooms. The cottage, newly refurbished this year, is comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a cosy country holiday in a place that is very "far from the madding crowds". The rear of the house looks directly onto the lovely river Aulne as it sweeps peacefully by.

There is direct access from the secluded wooded gardens to the beautiful river (part of the-Nantes Brest canal), one of the best fishing spots you'll find anywhere. Being just off a quiet main road allows easy access to the wonderful empty roads of the region and dozens of places to explore within easy reach: the West and Southern coasts of Brittany 30 to 40 minutes away, little friendly towns, villages and all sorts of attractions including excellent golf within a 30 minute radius. Perfect for a wonderful relaxing holiday.

Stang Korvenn has extensive grounds as well as the superb riverside location. In its 3 acres of gardens there is plenty of space to stretch out and relax, as well as loads of grassy areas for kids to run, cycle and play ball. There is also a fun games barn (see below).The nearest shop and bar are less than a mile away in the charming little village of Saint Thois, and the pretty market town of Chateauneuf du Faou with supermarkets, banks, restaurants and bars is a 5 to 10 minute drive or 25 minute cycle along the river / canal path. There are no immediate neighbours for the houses.

In the midst of the beautiful countryside and unspoilt coasts of Finistère, with activities to suit every taste (unless you're looking for noise and crowds!). Wild life is abundant, with kingfisher, heron and many other beautiful birds to watch, as well as bats, deer, otters and even coypu can be seen if you're patient. Children and families are well catered for, as well as the child free. Hundreds of miles of wonderful unspoilt safe and sandy beaches are within easy reach.

Local activities include: fantastic fishing (we have a fishing guide to the area if you wish and we can arrange licences), river swimming, excellent golf nearby, bike riding, running and walking along the canal tow-path, boat and kayak hire nearby, and excellent low cost horse riding stables. We have a large "games barn" with table tennis, darts and table football (foosball) for the competitive, as well as several adult sized bicycles for you to use. Extra bikes can be hired at the nearby town.
