BRITTANY – Meet Claire Murphy, a local Leggett Agent …


Born in the cold beauty of rural Northumberland and horse-mad from an early age I moved to France in 2004 to work in the export department of a large horsebox manufacturer. It was a complete change from life in the UK where I’d worked in a variety of jobs in the equine industry, competed and trained dressage horses and even took part in team selection trials for the British Young Rider squad.

In 2004 I boarded a ferry with two horses and have never looked back. Redundancy brought the opportunity to do something different; I’d always been interested in property – a complete change from travelling the world selling luxury horseboxes. After a stint with a French property agency I joined Leggett in order to be able to serve my clients better through their extensive international marketing network. The way of life here is just so different and refreshing. I love being by the sea in such a beautiful place and if I’m ever missing a bit of the ‘British’ life the Channel Islands are only an hour by boat. Perfect!

Great stone house in need of renovation. 3 bedrooms, garage & large garden in a sleepy hamlet – €82,500

An absolute gem, this house is very sensibly priced and with some careful renovation will make a fantastic family home or holiday retreat. Double glazed throughout, exposed beams, tiled floors it has all the elements, just needs enthusiasm and a little work !
Set back from a quiet country lane in a small hamlet and less than 3kms from the village of St Jacut du Mené

BRITTANY – Jardins Exotique de Roscoff


These beautiful exotic gardens at Roscoff were created in 1966 when the Department of Finistère purchased this rocky outcrop of 1.6 hectares and set about transforming it into a wonderful botanical garden, containing over 3,350 sub tropic plants from Australia, New Zealand as well as the Canary Island and South America. Open every day, the gardens contain wonderful collections of Cactus, palms and acacias. It is well worth visiting.
