Why the move from England? 

Sometimes it just seems the right time to do something new.  You know the feeling?  In fact, I think we even shocked ourselves! We had always hankered after running our own business and our daughter, Maxine, was still at a young enough age to make an easy move.

So where to?

We considered France, Italy and Spain as possible options and undertook many dashed mad-cap tours of large swathes of countryside on working holidays. In the end we decided the only and best way to complete our research was to sell up in England and set off in 2008 with caravan and daughter to do the grand tour.


“The path is this way!”

Why Le Crann?

A family of beach and countryside lovers, we quickly worked out that, whilst we were seeking a place of tranquility and culture, we did not wish to be more than 30 to 45 minutes to the nearest beaches.   So when we discovered Le Crann, we knew we had found something very special.  The beautiful 16th century cottages were just perfect; full of character and comfort, with private gardens, swimming pools, substantial grounds and immediate access to the magnificent countryside. Southern Brittany offers a warm and temperate climate, stunning beaches, a huge variety of cultural and sporting events and a distinct and friendly people. We had found home!

Growing up in France?

And now?

Having now been here several years, we still wake up every day thankful to have found this beautiful place that is Le Crann, delighted to watch our daughter grow up and thrive in a safe and happy environment. And each year, with each new guest, we are fortunate to be reminded, by seeing Le Crann fresh through your eyes, how lucky we are to be in such an amazing idyll.

We have a great passion for the place we have made home.  We are very aware that you only have one or two weeks in which to enjoy your holiday and we make every effort to make sure that you get the best from your holiday with a specially designed information pack.  From our small cottage in the main gardens, we are on hand to maintain the property to a high standard and available to help.  We hope you get as much pleasure from Le Crann and Brittany as we do!
