A house in Brittany

Discover an exceptional house – to sell – in Brittany (France)

The spirit behind the project

The house is located in the bucolic region of Monts d'Arrée. Due to its links to the linen and hemp trade in the 15th and 16th century, this region became the country of Parish enclosures. The Breton identity is very much present: the Breton language, the traditional dance evenings called fest noz, the renowned religious processions named “pardons”…

Thanks to the involvement of an architect, ancient stables have been converted into an exceptional home in 2006. The house blends discretely into the environment. A hundred years old stone wall surrounding the property guarantees a perfect privacy.

The combination of traditional materials and contemporary techniques provides 21st century’s comfort while respecting the environment.

On the ground floor, the French windows let the light enter to the heart of the house. Views of the garden can be seen throughout.

The 1 937 sq ft outhouse offers a double garage, a shed, a workshop and an attic.

The 2 large patios, in front of the house, enable one to make the most of the garden in summer weather.

Numerous water points make garden watering possible using the water from the well.

On the west side of the house, surrounded by bamboo and flowerbeds, patios on different levels have been created leading to a small flower garden with medicinal plants.


This house is located in the centre of Sizun, a very lively village with a growing population (2 300 inhabitants). In the near future, the town will provide a new health centre with doctors, nurses, physios and dentists. Young local producers provide the local market with quality products every week. In the town centre, all local shops can be found: pharmacy, small supermarket, bakery, petrol station, hotel and restaurant, bar and tobacconist’s etc…

Sizun, halfway between North and South Finistère, is situated in the protected Parc Régional Naturel d’Armorique, about 20 min from Landerneau (TGV railway, hospital). This central location is midway between north coast beaches and the Crozon peninsula.


The price

590 000 €

This renovation has been undertaken by the owners with the aim to live a peaceful and comfortable retirement and provide a welcome for their children and family.

Family events lead them to leave the region and pass on this gorgeous property. The price, largely below its real value, is determined by current prices on the local housing market.
