Description

"Hirondelle" welcomes you to Josselin, Petite Cité de Caractère, in the heart of Brittany. A delightful townhouse with spectacular views of the chateau, the canal and the town, you couldn't be better placed to enjoy your holiday. The house is less than 30m from the tow path of the Nantes-Brest canal, which makes it ideal for walkers and cyclists, or simply a stroll along its banks. A short walk (300m) through the streets of Josselin will take you to the stunning and perfectly preserved medieval chateau. Guided tours are available in English and French. The chateau is still lived in by the Duke and Duchess of Rohan. Also in the town of Josselin is the beautiful park of Bois d'Amour. A peaceful haven of woods and streams.
"Hirondelle" is both spacious and unique.
It has one of the most spectacular views in Josselin, as we face directly towards the chateau. This is why we have chosen "upside down" living and have the sitting room, kitchen and dining room all at the top of the house, to take advantage of the magnificent views towards the chateau, canal and the medieval town.
The house, hirondelle is French for swallow, is named after these birds, who sometimes come to rest just outside the window.

We have gone for the bespoke look, with quality, individual pieces of furniture, rather than mass-produced, with lots of lime and natural finishes. We've tried to keep the house as healthy and natural as possible.
"Hirondelle" has many interesting features, including a Medieval well in the floor of the bathroom; we have installed a glass floor over it (just like they did in the Eiffel Tower) and illuminated it with coloured lights, so all our guests can look down it in safety imagining days gone by when it would have been the water source for the house.
We also have our own internal mini chateau, on the first floor, which doubles as a bathroom, complete with traditional Breton sitting bath.

TopFloor
The sitting room is bright and airy with stunning views of the chateau and the canal. Exposed beams and beautiful wooden floors. Sofas, chairs, TV with DVD. DVD library. Radio and CD player. Fireplace with contemporary electric fire. Selection of books and toys.
The dining room with its lovely wooden floor,has a large central dinning table and seating for 6 plus a, traditional style wooden highchair. There are fabulous views of canal, chateau and town.It leads to the Moroccan room, a "snug" with cushioned bench for those quiet moments.
Kitchen:
The bespoke kitchen has a ceramic hob; separate eye level oven; dishwasher; belfast sink; fridge/freezer; microwave; toaster; kettle; coffee maker and lovely pine farmhouse table - great for family meals.
The first floor has three big bedrooms. One double with lovely views of the chateau; one with bunk beds and a traditional French sleigh bed, which has views of the canal and the creperie and a third room; which we call the jungle room, which has a double French sleigh bed and a single bed. This has views up the street towards town.
The house sleeps up to 10 people comfortably; without having to rely on sofa beds like in some other holiday homes. All the rooms are spacious and bright.
We also have our own internal mini chateau, on the first floor, which doubles as a bathroom, complete with traditional Breton sitting bath.


The Ground floor
On the ground floor we have the Gothic room, a lovely bright double bedroom which also opens onto the nursery bedroom. There is a huge entrance hall with doors into the Gothic room and Shower room (with the well in it) and it also has an amazing granite flagstone floor, as well as a double sized walk in shower. The slate on the walls was salvaged from the roof of a chateau.
The nursery room with cot, makes 10 guests plus a baby.
Spacious shower room with granite flagstone floor.
The slates on the wall were slavaged from an old chateau and the metal plate on the wall by the door, was the cap on the well, when we first discovered it.
The Medieval well which has now been glassed over is absolutely fascinating.
Watch this space for up-dates on its history!
Outside the house:
Enjoy the delights of the canal; whether it be walking, cycling or canoeing, or even just sitting and realxing, enjoying a cup of coffee, whilst the world floats by.
The nearest boulangerie is literally 10 meters from the house. Delicious French bread and pastries are available, freshly made on the premises, every day except for Sunday.
The House is opposite a Creperie, La Sarrazine, always very popular and all food is freshly prepared. It has a lovely outdoor terrace overlooking the canal, for relaxed "al fresco" dining .

Bed linen is included in the price. It is possible to rent towels, 5€ per person. T

Pets are welcome. There is a charge of £10 per week. We are happy to make the vet's appointment before your trip home.
We can offer a 20% discount on Brittany Ferries crossings for each standard car and passenger.
