Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Collorec, France, Your Home Away from Home

Approximately five kilometres from the beautiful regional park of d’Armorique, in Brittany, the small French hamlet of Collorec entices people looking for more than a sun and sand vacation. This area of Brittany is surrounded with myth and legend, overflowing with scenic wonder, and makes for a wonderfully relaxing destination. By taking a holiday rental cottage in Collorec you will be placing yourself at the heart of this heritage rich area. Your accommodation is fully furnished and equipped with everything you need to feel at home, and the nearby town of Carhaix-Plouguer can supply what the local amenities do not.

Things to Do on Holiday in Collorec, France

There are many activities that you can take part in whilst on holiday in Collorec, especially if you are an outdoors enthusiast. The nearby forests in the regional park are a veritable playground for people that like to hike and cycle, and there are many opportunities to catch sight of some wildlife there. The lakes and rivers in the surrounding area offer anglers the chance to drop a line, and canoeists the opportunity to test their skills. An hour away at the coast, you could try windsurfing or diving, and then in the afternoon, finish off with a round of golf.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Collorec, France

The area around your self catering accommodation in Collorec contains many places which are definitely worth your time visiting. The fabulous Carnac megalithic remains are just 80km away and is a good place to start. In fact, the entire area abounds in standing stones, and mysterious grottos. Other places that you might visit include the cathedral at Quimper, the medieval town of Morlaix (especially on a Saturday morning for its market) and the town of Carhaix should you need the facilities of a larger town. If you get a chance, take a drive along the rugged coastline which offers amazing scenery and spectacular views.

Weather in Collorec, France

One of the first things you will notice whilst on holiday in Collorec is just how green everything seems to be. This does, of course, also indicate that the region receives its fair share of rainfall! That said, in the most popular summer months of July and August, there is rarely more than 50mm falling in a month. The temperatures during this period hover around the low-20s degree Celsius mark. The winter sees more precipitation and colder temperatures, occasionally reaching as low as zero, but most normally hanging around the 9 degree mark.

Travel to Collorec, France

If you have decided to book a holiday rental cottage in Collorec, then the next decision is how to get there. There are two choices, and these are to drive or to fly. By driving, you will unfortunately be spending a lot of time in the car, but will have the use of your vehicle on arrival at your self catering accommodation in Collorec. Flying on the other hand is quicker, and you can fly between Manchester (MAN) or Birmingham (BHX) and Brest (BES) on Flybe.

The owners have certainly thought of everything. Comfortable beds, sofa's and the best equipped kitchen we have ever experienced - handy given my partner is a chef. We booked this holiday rental in this area with a view to doing a lot of walking, however, within a few weeks of booking our dog unexpectedly sustained a leg injury which meant we were unable to utilise the area for this purpose. As an alternative we hopped in the car and did a whole tour of the Brittany region. We drove 2 hours to Cancale and visited St Malo, Dinard and Dinan - all of which are well worth a trip. We also spent a day travelling along the beaches of the Crozon Peninsula and would recommend a visit to Ile Vierge Creek which was stunning on a bright sunny day. We stumbled across one dog friendly beach near there which was fantastic as the other beaches prohibit dogs between June and September just like in the U.K. Huelgoat and Concarneau are also worth a visit. Roscoff is also a beautifully quaint town to wonder around while you wait for your boat. The communication from the owners had been fantastic from the beginning. Nothing has been too much trouble. Plonevez Du Faou has the basic amenities but is a very quiet village and as such you would need a car to venture further. We had some trouble finding Kervihan because the Sat Nav took us to the village only. Luckily Vanessa was available by telephone to provide directions. We travel to France on an annual basis with our Labrador. Kervihan is by far the most beautiful house we have stayed in to date. Although the location didn't exactly suit us because of a change in our circumstances I wouldn't hesite to reccomend this rental to others. Being just an hour from Roscoff Port makes it a convenient choice and is perfect if you are seeking the peace and quiet of rural France. Thank you Vanessa - we had a wonderful stay.
