It is a converted convent school and is located in the village of Langoelan in Scorff Valley which stands in the NATURA 2000, an area of special interest for biodiversity. The property has previously been run as a language school where schools from other countries could attend to improve their knowledge of France and the French Language.The property contains: A main houseA school which forms part of the main house2 very large attics requiring work although a new roof was fitted a few years agoA gate house requiring some renovation 8,000 sq m of grounds with gardens and a forecourtThe main house has a very large drawing room, a dining room and a large kitchen on the ground floor. A solid oak staircase leads up to the first floor where there are 5 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, 1 with a fitted shower additional to the bath. Further up is a large attic which if converted would give 4 good size bedrooms with en suite facilities. In the basement there is a dry store, a laundry room and a 1 bedroom apartment with its own bathroom.Outside there is a large terrace connecting all the rooms which run along the rear of the property and enjoys wonderful views across the gardens. There is a park behind the house which has trees and bushes and is easily maintained.

The gate house has its own garden and entrance on the ground floor and the first floor and a large wood store.This fabulous building was originally intended to board visiting schools from England, accommodating 50 students at a time but many more usages could be made of it. In recent years Irish, African and French schools have stayed here as well as Buddhists coming from the nearby temple of Plouray during pilgrimages. Because of the peacefulness of the area the centre would also be the ideal place for residential courses such as photography, painting, crafts and yoga.

This is also a perfect area for fans of birdwatching, cycling and walking.The property is surrounded by beautiful nature in a small commune of only approximately 400 residents.
