Full description:

These two beautiful thatched cottages are situated in the heart of Blavet Valley, Morbihan, southern Brittany. Surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, woodland and country meadows, the thatched cottages are located conveniently near to the thriving market town of Baud, only 30 minutes from the nearest sandy beaches and within 2 hours drive of the ferry ports (St. Malo & Roscoff) and of all major airports in Brittany.

Both thatched cottages have been renovated to a very high standard and to the same style, by professional artisans between 1998 and 2007. Both have been run very successfully as luxury holiday cottages since 2005, each with 4-key and 4-star ratings.

This highly successful holiday rental business consistently brings in bookings of 50-60 weeks per year or more (i.e. 25-30 weeks per cottage) with an average income, over the last 5 years, in excess of 70,000 Euros p.a.

  • fitted out as a laundry room and workshop

SWIMMING POOL:

The 12.2m x 6.1m swimming pool with additional 1.5m roman steps has a large terraced area surrounding it for sunbeds and umbrellas. The pool area is in the sun all year round. The telescopic cover and heater enable the pool to be opened (to guests) from the beginning of April through to the beginning of November which is a great bonus out of the traditional peak season. Similarly, in inclement weather, you can comfortably swim under the cover, which has ample space for table and chairs or sunbeds under cover as well.

The telescopic pool cover and the additional fencing all comply with the latest pool security regulations and in addition to the security aspects, were chosen to maximise the aesthetics and enjoyment of use of the pool.

GARDENS:

A separate secure Pond Garden with 'stream' and mature flower beds, surrounded by trees, offers a tranquil get-away area for guests. A larger garden surrounds the swimming pool which is set in an old orchard still providing (cider) apples, plums, cherries and peaches from which we make jam for guests and our own cider. This garden has a large playing area for the children as well as swings and a climbing tower etc. A further smaller enclosed lawned garden directly services the two holiday cottages, accessible from each of the cottage patio areas.

LOCATION:

Although in a tranquil rural setting, Le Helleguy is only 3km from the nearest village bakery & pharmacy, 6km from the nearest superstore and 12km from Baud, the nearest town with several superstores, smaller shops and restaurants. The large towns of Lorient and Pontivy are easily accessible (30 mins drive) as are the picturesque and historic towns of Josselin and Vannes (30 & 45 mins drive respectively).

There is a good selection of restaurants in the area from a popular local creperie 2km away, to local village restaurants and super fine dining within a 20 minute drive.

ATTRACTIONS:

Southern Brittany offers a host of different attractions from historic Neolithic stone alignments of Carnac, to fortified chateaux of Josselin and Pontivy , to restored C16th villages, timber-frame houses and streets in Vannes, Quimper and Malestroit, war-time Resistance museums, traditional extravagant Chateaux to modern Butterfly and Aquatic museums, adventure parks, quad-biking and the like. Not to mention the golfing, horse-riding, hiking, mountain-biking, kayaking and sailing activities that abound.

We have a high annual return rate of guests (30%) who continue to enjoy the setting and the variety of experiences available to them from this location over many years.


CURRENT USAGE:

The two thatched cottages are currently offered on a weekly rental basis throughout the whole year. We have been consistently booked from Easter to November and for Christmas & New Year weeks, often with odd weeks in the off-season months as well (November - March).
Consistently awarded a '4 star' rating by the local tourist board (Lorient) and '4 keys' (clés) rating by the national holiday company Clévacances over the last 5 years. Our income consistently exceeds 70,000€ pa.

Although the majority of guests are from the UK, we have a very wide international clientele including the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Russia, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Ireland, Netherlands, France etc.
FUTURE USAGE:

The cottages present two ready options for your use as either:
a) Investment opportunity - two
holiday cottages, income of 70,000€+ pa, managed from elsewhere

This is a great investment opportunity offering a healthy return and scope for expansion and increased income. We have contacts who are willing to manage the property on-site on your behalf i.e. perform the change-overs, cleaning and ironing, gardening, swimming pool maintenance and general property maintenance. The business can be run successfully from the UK (or elsewhere).

b) Lifestyle change - Home
with one holiday cottage, income of 35,000€+ pa, managed on-site.

With all home comforts already available, it would be easy to make one cottage your home with the option to continue running the other cottage as a gite, bringing in around 35,000€. This is a great opportunity for a life-style change and to acquire an established up and running business with a good, comfortable income and with the potential to expand and increase this income should you wish to do so.

This is a beautiful area to live in and the neighbours and locals are all very friendly, welcoming and helpful.
