Description of the Plessala vacation cottage rental
La Vieille Longere is an ancient stone longhouse that combines original features with modern comforts.
Enter through the traditional Breton arched doorway into a double height hall with exposed stripped oak beams.
On your left is the sunny open plan kitchen that has a 5 ring cooker with large oven, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, microwave, coffee maker, kettle and toaster.
To the right is the dual aspect living room with dining table seating six, large comfy sofas, an efficient woodburner and television receiving english language channels. French doors open onto the rear patio with its built-in barbeque and far reaching rural views. This is a lovely place to relax and watch the sun setting over the distant forest after a day out sightseeing.
The ground floor double bedroom also has doors to the terrace; there is a shower room right next to this bedroom, which is a good option for any guests who prefer to avoid stairs.
On the first floor there are two more bedroom suites, another double room and a large twin room, each with a private shower room.

A selection of books about the area, large scale local maps and up-to-date tourist information is provided for guests to use and the english owners live next door, so are on hand if required for advice about local events, restaurants, markets or shops.

Area Information
La Vieille Longere is located in tranquil, rural surroundings where country lanes join friendly little hamlets and walkers trails wind across fields, beside the river and into the forest. It is a nature lovers paradise with hares, deer, many types of bird, butterflies and wild flowers.

If you are feeling energetic Plessala our nearest town publishes a map of circular walks and cycle paths round the area ranging from 5 to 25km. It is also possible to hire kayaks to explore the River Lie, or to join an accompanied pony trek through Loudeac Forest.

In Plessala you will discover an excellent creperie for authentic Breton lunches, a couple of bars, a small supermarket, a selection of locally owned individual shops and a weekly farmer's market. There is a trout fishing lake, tennis and boules courts.

Just 10km away you will find Moncontour, a delightful historic walled hill town with wonderfully preserved buildings, some great places to dine out, regular brocante markets and medieval festivals.

Continue another 10km to Lamballe, centuries ago the capital of this area of Brittany, there are art museums and half-timbered houses. The town is also home to a national horse stud where giant Breton horses are bred, this is open to the public every market day and there are regular riding displays.
