L’Oasis is a simple property nestled in a small hamlet of farmhouses just 5 minutes drive from the charming market town of Mauron, in central Brittany. It sleeps up to 7 people in two double bedrooms and a loft room with three single beds. At only £325/week to rent, it offers a peaceful place to relax, unwind and enjoy the timeless simple pleasures of rural Brittany life.
It features loads of Breton charm with huge exposed beams, wood burning stove set in a feature fireplace, and comfortable, traditional Breton furniture. The split front door opens into a spacious kitchen/lounge area, fully tiled with an attractive rug around which the settees are arranged. The kitchen has all you need to cook for up to 7 guests, including an excellent cooker (butane hob and electric oven), microwave and a slow-cooker. There is a fridge-freezer and all the kitchen utensils you should need.
The dining room comprises an extendable table with up to 8 chairs, a traditional dresser and a Breton carved sideboard, complete with Breton cider cups. It also features a large double-glazed window which offers views across the front garden to the fields and Paimpont forest beyond.
The 2nd bedroom is accessed from the Dining Room and enjoys a west facing window. Freshly decorated for 2017, it also features a small recess in the wall which we believe was once used as a shrine when the property was occupied by some Catholic nuns.
The master bedroom can be found to the rear of the property, again on the ground floor. It offers exposed beams and some exposed original stonework and fosters a romantic feel with hidden lighting. It looks out to the rear garden and the farmland beyond.
The ground floor also offers a generously sized bathroom with toilet. (Very) hot water is available via a large immersion tank which is heated automatically at night, with an override switch for daytime boost if required. The property benefits from septic tank drainage and the simple instructions for its good operation are available on site.
The rear vestibule offers access to the Master bedroom, bathroom, rear garden and finally the stairs to the loft bedroom. There is also a washine machine in the vestibule area. The loft bedroom has three single beds, and would ideally suit children owing to the steep pitch of the roof,
The front garden offers off road parking and views across farmland towards the Paimpont hills. The rear garden similarly offers views of farmland and our neighbour’s meticulously cultivated small holding. The garage houses a variety of adult and child bicycles for your use. There is some garden furniture, with reclining chairs stored in the understairs cupboard leading to the loft room.
