Our charming detached holiday cottage, La Belle Maison, was named by a former mayor of Plessala - its picture postcard looks are enhanced by the mature flowering shrubs which surround the property.
This gîte is especially popular with couples seeking a tranquil country retreat with space to spread out, however it can also easily accommodate four guests.
La Belle Maison is approached through private south-west facing grounds which benefit from the sun throughout the day and on into summer evenings when wonderful sunsets over the forest can be enjoyed.
The garden has a built-in stone barbecue, hardwood table with chairs and parasol in a sheltered outdoor dining space; plus two sun loungers - ideal for snoozing!
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 mirror and a stocked bookcase here.
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 plenty of space for the dining table with four chairs, plus a dresser for crockery and a tall corner unit to store cleaning equipment out of sight.
There is a separate sitting room which has chestnut parquet flooring with carpet square to make it cosy, and a very comfortable three piece suite. The wood burner has a top-box that is ideal for simmering casseroles, warming plates or mulling wine in cooler months.
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.
Finally there is a spacious modern shower room which has a large basin set in a vanity unit, shower cubicle, wc, and heated towel radiator.
