Coet-Stival, 55 acres and a longere

House - Entire home/apt · Coet-Stival, Pontivy, Brittany, France

Coet-Stival is where we spend time, when we get tired of overdigital exposure...It's green, it's humid, it's refreshing, it's lost , it's addictive. Living most of the time in Asia, we long for a peaceful retreat, to re-energize. Coet is the place..

Coet-Stival is where we spend time, when we get tired of overdigital exposure...It's green, it's humid, it's refreshing, it's lost , it's addictive. Living most of the time in Asia, we long for a peaceful retreat, to re-energize. Coet is the place..

The Space

Coet-Stival is a typical 2 storey Longere (a brittany farmhouse), in the heart of Brittany, located at the edge of a huge 55 acres property (forests and pastures) . It comes with a big living room and kitchen on the ground floor (RDC in france), and 3 bedrooms+ 2 bathrooms on the second floor (first floor for french).
The kitchen is fully equipped with gaz owen, gaz stove, microwave, dish washer, washing machine, dryer, steam iron and ironboard, simple coffee machine, electric kettle, and all the cuttlery needed to fully host 8 people.
The bottom of our fridge is a freezer.

The table is 180x90 and fits 8 people .

The fire place is fitted with a cast iron stove and stock of dry wood is available in a shack, near the carpark.

The living room comes with 2 armchairs , 1 coffee table, and 2 sofas : a fix 2.5 seaters in natural fibers (abaca) and a convertible fabric 2 seater sofa that transforms into a bed 140x190.
We have a flat 40" TV with sattellite channel (english and eurpean), and an old PS2.
Our wifi is excellent, and the wireless reception is good in all the parts of the house. However the maximum download speed is 2mb/2. While it is enough for a (website hidden) conversation and emails, it is too slow to streamline movies.

All the bedrooms are on the second floor, and are equipped with a full bed, 140x190. We do not have wardrobes in the rooms, but each bed comes with 6 drawers underneath and there is ample space to put clothes.

Our place is very good to get away from the hassles of cities : before we set our internet connection, we were in an internet desert. Don't worry, if you want to live in a very reclusive way, our livebox can be switched off easily and you can diseappear for a while from (website hidden) and blackberry shackles.

The center of Britanny, is remarkable for several matters :
1-the road system is excellent. There are high speed (toll free) roads that can take you easily on the coast of brittany : we are 60 km from Vannes, 100 km from Concarneau, 60 km from cotes d'armor, and if you want to dash to Rennes, it's 120 km away.
2-the countryside is very relaxing : a very good way to visit it is to ride your bike. The roads are very pleasant, and the traffic is very low.

Access : the best is to come by car.
Otherwise, you need to get to Vannes, or Rennes by train (TGV) and get to pontivy by bus.
From Pontivy, we can arrange a pick up at the bus station, to bring you to Coet stival.
There are several airports aroud our place :
Dinard (deserved by Ryan air) is 1.5 hours away
Nantes (deserved by easyjet) is 2 hours away
Our favorite is to arrive in PARIS CDG, to rent a car from there upon our arrival (we use KK services) and drive all the way to Coet stival .
There are several airports around 2 hours away from Coet-Stival : Dinard, Nantes, or Rennes. You have to check the various airlines that deserve these cities, but Dinard is a good entry point for the ones that fly Ryanair.

  • Xavier was a very gracious and helpful host and we got great help from Justine as well!
    We were the first guest that rented Coet-Stival and it was a wonderful experience. The house is in a beautiful location with access to woods, trails and fields that makes the stay even better.
    The house is in good condition and well furnished. Two nice bathrooms and showers so it's no problem to rent as two couples or a family.
    Some minor things can be sorted for the next guests such as fixing the dishwasher, providing a barbecue and some patio furniture. From my experience of Xavier those things will be fixed for the next guests.
    I can highly recommend renting Coet-Stival for a chance to experience all of Bretagne. The woods, fields, beaches and sea.
    The village Pontivy is close by with market on Mondays, supermarkets and restaurants. In Stival there is a great local bakery and creperie.
    Chances are we'll go back for another stay!

We are a French/Taiwanese couple , living in Asia since 1989, and in Singapore since 1994, married to each other for more than 20 years. We work too much, drink too much coffee (but good one), and I travel too often while Elisa is stationed in Singapore. We became Airbnb addicts, and try now to book as much as possible via Airbnb, when travelling for business or pleasure : you get to know very nice people, and some of the rooms are just stunning...So much different from an hotel room... We added a very cute 2 bedrooms apartment in central KL, and got some simple renovation to bring it up to standard. Kl is a great city, suffering from traffic jams, but very compact. It's fun to walk around, as the apartment is well located. 2 years ago, we started the painfully long renovation of a 150 years old longere in Brittany. It's coming to an end, it's really nicely made, and we will update pictures very soon. The longere (a long house) is divided in two distinct houses. If you want to unplug yourself for a while, just take a digital break and spend 2 weeks in a laid back place, with a huge property....
