With pleasant offices necessary to work well from home?
Yes, the idea of renovating this village house is to make it a practical and warm place. The open space workstations are composed of large trays, comfortable chairs, with a secondary 27" screen because 2 screens for teleworking is much more practical! with keyboard mouse if necessary. Depending on the formulas, there are closed offices for 1 or 2 people. Access is free via digicode. For after sports or after bathing, there are 2 showers available. A meeting room on one level, rather cool and which opens onto the south-facing terrace and garden.

And on the price side? What are the rates for the Carantec coworking space?
CocoLéon offers prices equivalent to coworking spaces in urban centers of major cities in France. Certainly Carantec is a small town in Brittany, but by the sea in an area known for its tourist attraction and with volumes of offices and workstations lower than large coworking spaces. It's a very different telework experience ... be careful to try it is to adopt it!!
It is possible to reserve a workstation on a personal basis or on behalf of a company. The company that manages the space can issue invoices for individuals, autoentrepreneurs or companies.
What do the creators of the Carantec coworking space think? and teleworking in Brittany?
Coworking according to Valérie
Living in Carantec is great, being able to work there is even better.
In Carantec, we live to the rhythm of the tides and the weather and we can reconcile work and personal life.
Whether it's gray or sunny, there's always something to do because the environment is exceptional. Whether you like swimming, going on the water, fishing, walking, everything is possible!
The icing on the cake, our center offers very nice bistros and restaurants , shops, cultural and sports activities, a lively market on Thursday mornings, a farm to find incredible vegetables and local products, a brasserie, tastings of oysters with sea view.
And you can do almost everything on foot : play tennis, play golf, go to the cinema, meet artists, go for a drink...
Shuttles offer tours of the bay, visits to the Château du Taureau, walks to the island of Batz... A little further, by car this time, you have a well-known spot for kiteboarding and surf.
And in 10 minutes, you arrive in Morlaix, a very pleasant little town with cultural facilities and very nice shops.
At CocoLéon, you are in the heart of the village and enjoy a very nice setting and tools for working, a very sunny garden and terrace, and you even have the possibility of renting a studio if you want accommodation 2 steps away . from your temporary office .
So I can tell you that this coworking space will be an ideal place for you to enjoy the sea, the islands, nautical and cultural activities. And above all, to meet people who work there all year round or who take advantage of the spaces occasionally to have a good quality of life at work .
It 's the spirit of the place , to meet, exchange, share good times while working and exchange good tips to make the most of it! And that's why we created it!
Coworking according to Pierre
Of course, working or telecommuting in Brittany by the sea is first and foremost work;) Nevertheless, the quality of life is incomparable. This proximity to nature, to the sea and the entire coastal ecosystem provides sensations that the city does not provide. It's hard to describe exactly the benefits of a less urban life, I would say that you feel more alive !
Here in Brittany, and particularly on the north coast, the landscape changes every quarter of an hour to the rhythm of the tides. The air is invigorating and the colors of the sky are constantly changing. Yes sometimes it is gray, but the shades of gray are incredibly beautiful.
And then in Carantec, there is not only this exceptional nature of the bay of Morlaix . It is a city, certainly a small city but with shops open all year round, full of activities and a real social life. As everything is easier than in town, we go to the cinema more often than before in Rennes, we find friends easily at the bistro at the end of the week, we hold a tennis, a golf course or a kayak outing in 5 minutes to the coming weekend.
With coworking at CocoLéon , it's a bit like this idea of allowing teleworkers from urban centers to benefit from the charms of this exceptional territory. For a few days, a week or more, they work but change universes and during breaks and free time can organize a trip to Callot Island, fishing on the foreshore, a kayak or kite trip , tennis...
My opinion after 2 years here is that the quality of the framework and the well-being contribute to their productivity, to the quality of work and creation. Teleworking in Carantec in northern Brittany is now a dream come true.
