Missiou, Brittany, France €130.000
  • Breton cottage and large barns with development potential and over 3 hectares of land offering an excellent investment.
Picturesque south-west facing traditional stone Breton cottage, with two adjoing stone and slate barns. To the left of the cottage a sheltered walled garden with outside tap (used to be an oldstone barn) houses a selection of herbs, rhubarb, raspberries and tayberries. The additional old hay barn is planted on the south facing front, with figs, kiwi fruit, grapes and wisteria. The main garden area comprises of a selection of ornamental and fruit trees including bramley and cox orange pippin, medlars and quinces (to name but a few.)

The land of around eight acres comprises of garden areas close to the cottage, and beyond a mix of wild meadow, cider orchard, bog, woods, and grass meadows. We bought it with the intention of retaining some of the meadows etc. to be as nature friendly as possible for wild flowers and the wildlife.

A quote has been given for mains water connection if desired and this in in the region of 1200 euros.

The cottage needs interior refurbishment and the outside barns etc require maintenance - therefore it is important to take this into consideration, There are a good few acres around the house and besides direct access on foot from the cottage, a rough, tractor width, private access road to the remaining land (mainly woods, and wild meadow with a stream running through).

The main annual outgoings on the property and land for tax de habitation and fonciere are low, making it an ideal low annual cost holiday home and additionally there could be scope,, to change the two large adjoining stone barns to renovate and build a much larger home etc. but this would be subject to planning approval.
With no knowledge of horses or farming in general, we are unable to advise on this subject. Finally there is a small windfarm built to the south of Missiou but it is not at all intrusive or seen from the property.

Missiou is is a small hamlet of three prooperties and is east of the village of Lohuec (department 22160).
