Welcome in Brittany !

La péniche Libje, que nous voyons passer de temps en temps, propose des croisières sur le canal Our British friends will not feel lost in Brittany. Thatched-roof houses, manors, property bought and well-maintained by … British people, actually; dancing to the sound of the biniou or bagpipes… even the rain whitch has crossed the Channel to come into Brittany!  Right, I am probably exaggerating, especially as it does not rain as often as it is reported: ‘it is sunny several times a day’ we say locally. We also say that ‘it only rains on Parisians’ but sssh…!! This is between you and us!
Jane nous fait coucou en passant avec sa péniche. La péniche Libje vous propose des croisières au départ de Redon ou de Josselin
Our peacock's name is... Peacock ! He is sometimes naughty, be carreful... So, we bring some sun cream (espacilly if you want to ride a bike), a raincoat, beachwear, the fishing shells shoes, hiking shoes, beach shoes… and then we check the sky. You'll learn to guess the secrets of the wind.
Pets welcomed, please tell us when booking or well before your arrival. We have three cats, a couple of peacock, chicken and gooses.

Depuis le rocher qui domine la maison, nous avons une vue magnifique sur le canal You'll appreciate quality and be happy if you look for picturesque place to holiday. La Villa Tranquillité is a "maison de caractère" situated on a classified site in Rohan by the canal lock and weir and the "Chapelle Notre Dame de Bon Encontre". The house was built around 1920 and we have retained the charm of the beautiful era of the Gustavian-style decor of the 1930’s -  in light shades of grey and white, and simply furnished.

"The majestic Villa Tranquillité, right on the edge of the Nantes-Brest canal near Pontivy, is surrounded by its own large garden, and is perfect for visitors looking for a chance to re-charge and enjoy a sense of well-being. Agnes's organic and vegetarian specialty dishes are certainly worth coming for

The décor in the 5 rooms in this villa is carefully thought through, with a peaceful, Nordic feel featuring tones of grey, white and beige. Most of the spacious rooms have their own bathroom. The 'Duc de Rohan' and 'La belle Epoque' rooms feature beautiful baths, one of which is freestanding. You'll be able to watch the barges and pleasure boats from your room, and Agnes will be delighted to help you explore the canal during a canal-themed holiday.

Family-themed breaks are also possible as well as writing workshop breaks. If relaxation is more your thing, then take advantage of the Well-Being break, which includes massage, shiatsu and natural treatments. Enjoy organic specialties over dinner including walnut lentil gratin, or salmon and cabbage millefeuille. Children will love the peacocks and geese that freely roam the property, and adults will be glad to see all the tourist information available, and take up the offer of hiring a bike for some great trips out."
