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.
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!
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.
“A lifetime is not enough to discover all the joy that is Brittany”
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!

This really is the perfect place to come for an idyllic get-away in a beautiful setting.
Two beautiful houses, amazing hosts and plenty to do made our holiday one to remember.
Sue has done a magnificent job of putting together an information pack, which became an essential tool in our day to day planning.
The cottage setting and the views across the valley are stunning. We immediately felt relaxed and just soaked it all up.
Wonderful!! What can we say? Sue and Steve have created a holiday venue and experience which is as close to perfect as it is possible to be…
We had a fantastic time. The cottages more than lived up to and indeed excelled the photos and advertising.
