What Oliver loves…
- This is the ultimate romantic and quirky couple’s hideaway cottage
- We love the owner’s creative flair and personal touch in creating a comfortable and cosy hideaway for her guests to enjoy
- Guests can purchase the hand-dyed vintage linen and some objets d'art straight from the owner
- The friendly and charming owner loves the region and will very happily advise on things to see and do…especially if you are into antiques and vintage shopping!
- Walk to the village for morning coffee and groceries or to the lake for a swim or the jazz festival
Le Cocon was conceived by its creative and talented owner with a vision in mind: to create a romantic hideaway cottage in Brittany for couples to escape to and enjoy each other’s company in a charming and unique setting full of inspiration and personal touches.
This quirky cottage is like a glamorous little jewellery box filled with delights for the eyes and senses… an attractive array of vintage, antique and modern pieces, all individually selected and choreographed by the owner.
But Le Cocon is not only a feast for the eye. It is also very comfortable and newly renovated. A romantic bedroom with free standing copper bath, good quality mattress and crisp hand-dyed vintage bed linen is under the eaves upstairs and oozes character. Downstairs there is a small, well-equipped kitchen and living-dining room with fireplace and sofa, perfect for lounging on whilst watching a movie. There is also a marbled wet-room with shower and loo.
Outside the pretty garden has sun loungers, table and chairs, barbecue and a double hammock for relaxing ‘à deux’.
Le Cocon is situated in the small village of Langourla in the heart of Brittany and the Cotes d'Armor region. Just a 10-minute walk away are the two local village bars and grocery store. Guests can also enjoy a beautiful restaurant just a 5-minute drive away and many more amenities in Merdrignac, just twelve kilometers away. There are plenty of local markets and medieval towns to explore, like Dinan and Moncontour.
Also within walking distance is a very beautiful lake with an Amphitheatre which hosts a famous Jazz festival in the summer as well as classical music festivals and other events throughout the year. The lake has a beach area, but the coast is only one hour away for guests who prefer the region’s wild beaches, family beaches or rugged coastline of the Emerald coast. There is also a large local forested area of 2,200 hectares where hiking, horse-riding, fishing or hunting excursions are possible.
Le Cocon is the perfect romantic bolthole for a unique and memorable stay in Brittany at any time of the year.

Little Sustainability Gems About the Property
Everything in le Cocon is vintage, meaning that all the pieces throughout the property has had another life. Each piece of furniture has been sourced by the owner from vide greniers and brocantes, even the linen on the bed is all vintage.
Le Cocon sits in a marvellous spot in the heart of the charming Cotes D'Armor area of the Brittany region. Located within walking distance to the picturesque village of Langourla, the cottage is perfectly situated as a springboard for days out: everything you could possibly want is within an hour's drive. For those who fancy some relaxation by the sea, there are beautiful beaches such as Dinard, Erquy and Binic. Moreover, there are many walking paths along the Emerald coast as well as plenty of sight-seeing opportunities due to the abundance of historical villages and towns.
Less than a 5-minute drive away is Saint Launeuc, which boasts three restaurants (one offering a la carte menu with seasonal, locally sourced produce and an excellent wine list!), a creperie and a small bistro. This village is surrounded by large forested area of 2,200 hectares where one can do horse riding, biking, fishing or hunting excursions all of which can be booked through a fantastic local hotel mixing modern and traditional style. Alternatively, the owner would be delighted to make the enquiries and bookings on your behalf.
The nearest large town is Merdrignac (12km) where you will find a large supermarket, petrol station, restaurants, bars and a traditional market every Wednesday morning. There are many other lively local markets on every week such as Broons (12km, Wednesday morning) and Dinan (33km, Thursdays). This is an interesting medieval city where you can easily pass a full day admiring its beautiful cobble streets, the stunning port and enjoy several bars and restaurants.
Futher places which are also well worth a visit include the historical town of Moncontour which will host the "Fete Medievale" in August 2017, a sight to see.
Finally, vintage shopping and flea market lovers will be spoilt for choice: feel free to ask for recommendations to the lovely owner, who will also be happy to take you on a tour of her favourite hidden gems!

How long have you owned the property?
I’ve owned the property for just over a year.
What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
Everything! Before I had stepped out of the car I had fallen in love with it, it was exactly what I was looking for as my next project which was to create a romantic get away for couples.
Are there any interesting stories in its history?
It was built as a family home and had been in the same family since it was built although unoccupied for the last 12 years, this tiny cottage was home to a family of 7 at one point !
Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Not yet !
For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Relax and reconnect to what’s really important, enjoying each others company!
Brittany is famous for its Gallettes and crepes simple fare but delicious.
There is beautiful scenery at every turn, whether you enjoy hiking along the rugged coast line of the Emerald coast, lazing on the beautiful beach at Dinard or wandering around the medieval towns of Dinan, Moncontour and Josslin there’s something different to do every day.
What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
There are two beautiful lakes one is walking distance from the cottage in the village of Langourla, lovely to walk around or take a picnic, relax, read a book. The other is only a 5 minute drive in the village of St Launeuc, this one has a small man made beach where you can swim, the villages are very small so there’s never lots of people in fact more often than not I’m the only person on the beach !
Romantic and relaxing hideaway
A lovely little place with an amazing garden in a small village in the French countryside. Driving distance to lots of interesting towns, and with a nice Italian restaurant in the village.
The house itself is very well maintained and exactly as in the photos with all the amenities you need. The garden is a beautiful oasis to spend time in.
Would definitely return.
Just the most quaint, beautiful house! Set in such an amazing location we felt totally relaxed and chilled!
Just how it looks in the pictures!
Lovely, private space for a break for two. Less than an hour's drive to so many places (and French roads are normally clear so its easy). Inspiring decor and great garden for sitting out.
Great location and cozy house!
The host is friendly and helpful. Nice house and great location.
Beautiful and romantic
Beautiful Gite and gardens, very romantic setting and very well appointed and our hostess was one of the best. The village is small but with two bars within walking distance ideal. Clear night skies without light pollution gave a stunning view of the stars and planets whether lying outside on the double hammock or lying in bed looking through the Velux roof window. Brittany beaches about an hour drive away is another plus point. The lights in the garden in the evening are enchanting
Thank you Michelle for a lovely stay - the house was so festive with holly and baubles and fairy lights - very charming for our Boxing Day arrival! What an incredible bath! Loved it. Cosy bed, well-equipped kitchen and an Aladdin's cave of lamps and curios. Had a fun game of pool over coffee in the village and a stunning walk in Le Foret Broceliande, Merlin's Tomb, Fountain of Eternal Youth and rich legend. Lovely dinner at nearby hotel. Lots of treats. Thank you for your swift responses and kind hosting.
Thank you Michelle for a beautiful stay! Le Cocon has been a dreamy retreat for us. The location is perfect and the décor is beautiful and fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and certainly hope to return.
Michelle was so welcoming and Le Concon is beautifully situated in the village of Langourla. Everything is catered for both inside and outside. We felt very comfortable and at home. I wish we could have stayed longer. It is ideally situated for walks around the countryside , as well as day trips to the beautiful villages/towns of interest in Brittany.
Comfortable, good value, great customer service from the owner.
Wonderful base to stay
Our second visit here to Le Cocon since 2017. We have had a wonderful time re-visiting our favourite haunts and enjoying all the area has to explore. St. Malo is top of the list for very tasty French seafood. Vannes to visit some 'boutique' shops and fill the car with treasures and gifts (especially as December is around the corner). Josselin is perfect for historical architectue and café culture - we decided to return to take a short break before returning to the world of work in October after a long summer break. Le Cocon is perfect for two - comfortable in the evenings to enjoy the delights on offer and read/watch a film with the heat from the fire - after a relaxing bath.
Michelle, thank you for your very warm welcome on our arrival and providing a wonderful base to stay. Naturally we shall plan to return next year for another quick break before returning to the real world.
Le Cocon is simply amazing! A real gem in a stunning part of Brittany.
The most stylish home we have rented in France. Friendly and helpful owner. Lovely ares.
Please to come back after a long day out
We have had a lovely holiday, travelling far and wide and visiting all your suggested Antique and Brocante venues.In 20 years of coming to France we can honestly say this is the most stylish place we have stayed. It is a pleasure to come back after a long day out.
We Loved It!
Le Cocon was stunning, beautifully decorated and a super tranquil setting.
Very relaxing property
Excellent place to chill and fantastic owner.
A Great Stay!
An excellent destination for which you gave good preparation and which possessed a very hospitable, accommodating owner but we were rather unlucky with the amount of rain we experienced :)
We loved the house!
Le Cocon - What an absolute gem of a place. We truly have had a wonderful day. The owner have an amazing flare and great taste in interior design and Le Cocon exceeded our expectations. So where do I start... The lighting, mirrors antiques, super comfy bed, gorgeous bath, fab kitchen to meet all of your needs; great garden with secret sparkly lights that light up at night... my favorite has to be the drinks trolley where would you find bols and naughty glasses all in one place! The weather was not great which gave us the opportunity to tight the five and savour the atmosphere of Le Cocon... We would love to come back!!!!
Wow ... this idyllic cottage will not let you down. Michelle can be very proud of all their work on the property. It has been restored and fitted out very well. On arrival, the place is better than in the pictures.
It is nice to stay somewhere quiet and relaxing away form the hustle and bustle - exactly what Le Cocon gives you.
The large garden is great for relaxing and sunbathing.
The location is great. You are within easy reach of everything you could ask for in Brittany. Shops are not too far, as well as quaint medieval villages and the coast.
Quirky, Fabulous, Comfortable and beautiful
This is such a wonderful place to stay for a cosy and romantic break. Le Cocon is as good, even better, than the pictures show. It is quirky, full of fabulous unusual items, very comfortable and beautiful all in one! A great location to just walk in a quiet small town, or get in the car a visit medieval towns and beautiful beaches around the area.
A wonderful visit to an idyllic cottage
A wonderful visit to this idyllic cottage in Brittany, we were made most welcome and the house is nothing short of stunning with its beautiful, but cosy interiors. The thought and care that has been put into this property is second to none and we felt very much at home during our time there. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this cottage and look forward to returning soon. Also worth a mention is the beautiful open air theatre in Langourla, which hosts various events throughout the summer, not while we were there unfortunately, but maybe next time ........
Magnificent place to come back to
I was looking for a cottage, for a short break with my partner, who enjoys luxurious and stylish properties. The mission was to find a place suiting my limited budget. I came across the pictures of ‘Le Cocon’ and I was intrigued. On the arrival, I was blown away by picturesque settings and tranquil surroundings. However, the true surprise was waiting inside. We walked into the cottage and were instantly taken by the unique design with a great taste. It felt private, cosy and specious at the same time. This unique place with magnificent deco made our stay very special. On the practical side, the beautiful kitchen is clean and well equipped. The local village and shops are only a few minutes away. I would love to come back to ‘Le Cocon’ for a little longer break, to fully appreciate this beautiful house in the lovely area.
Perfect in every way
Wow! What can I say, a little piece of tranquility in Le Cocon. We live a busy life in London and wanted to get away from it all and Le Cocon was perfect in every way. Beautiful surroundings and the place itself is fantastic, attention to detail was perfect and the host was lovely and helpful. Came away feeling relaxed and calm and we will definitely be coming back. I would highly recommend Le Cocon to anyone, we loved it and will be booking again soon!
Perfect for a romantic getaway
Me and my partner Joseph stayed in the gorgeous little Boutique house for a week but could of easily stayed longer, Michelle and Jono were the perfect hosts they met us at the property to show us around and even set up a BBQ for us as the weather was great. We were welcomed with a bottle bubbly and a fridge with some basic necessities so we didn't need to worry about going to the shops until later on. The house was beautifully presented they really have created a gorgeous romantic boudoir, the décor was delightful and all the furniture gave it a real rustic feel. We could easily stay they forever! The local lake was gorgeous and a perfect place to catch some rays, we found all the local people to be very friendly and helpful especially to a English couple who no little French! We spent our days sipping wine in the garden surrounded by nature:) Was absolutely perfect for a romantic getaway and can't wait to return to Le Cocon!
