Welcome to Petit Minou en Bretagne

I moved to this lovely part of Brittany at the end of the summer in 2008 with my husband and my two daughters

We have two holiday gites and hope to have lots of visitors in the years to come

Life here is slower than it used to be in England but my days are so much busier - looking after our two Ouessant sheep, our chickens, geese, ducks and seven cats; trying out new recipes using our freshly grown veggies, trying to keep up with the weeding and the the garden and keeping the gites in tip top condition ready for our visitors

If I have any spare time I make handmade greetings cards and gifts and have just opened an Etsy shop - visit it here

I also enjoy taking photographs and have recently joined Flickr so hopefully I will post some of my shots on here too

This is intended to be my blog about our new life here in Brittany - I really must try to make time for regular updates but seem to be failing miserably

La Petite Chapelle Bretonne

La Petite Chapelle Bretonne, originally uploaded by Petit Minou.
This in a lovely shot with lovely clouds highlighting the little chapel which I mentioned in my previous blog

It is miles from any village and stands next to an old farm on a ridge but
I can just imagine those small rural Breton weddings which have taken place there over the centuries

I think it is just so quaint - I must try to find out more of its history


  1. A grey sky in Bretagne!...need more blue for Blu x

  2. Blue skies will soon be with us Blu...but I just love those dramatic clouds

  3. I love this shot. It looks very moody. Well done, you!


Thanks for visiting, I'd love to hear your comments
