A great cottage in a great location

5 of 5
I had a very good week in the cottage. It's nicely situated in a quiet hamlet yet just a mile or two from Carhaix with two large supermarkets and all the shops that you will need including a newsagents that sell English newspapers. The cottage offers loads of English TV channels and there is free Wi Fi in the café at Leclerc supermarket. What's not to like ?!

Fantastic location

5 of 5
Excellent property, well equipped and very clean. The beach is stunning and less than a minutes walk from the property. Although there are a couple of restaurants nearby there are no shops so a car is essential.
