We spent a week in Poul Bizic in early October. The house is brilliant, managing to provide every modern comfort and convenience whilst maintaining its French charm and character. The bedrooms are spacious with lots of storage and hanging space and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen has literally everything you could need and there is a huge dining table. The seating in the lounge area is also comfortable with a TV/DVD, satellite box, a library of DVDs and there is a massive wood-burning stove; there was an abundance of newly fallen sweet chestnuts whilst we were there some of which we roasted in the ash pan of the fire - very tasty.
The house is set in its own spacious grounds with parking in a lovely, tranquil rural setting, yet only about six minutes drive from the centre of Corlay which has a reasonable supermarket, a butcher, a baker, banks and a newly reopened fuel station/convenience store.
There is an abundance of things to see and do in the area, and the hosts have compiled a comprehensive dossier in a folder in the house. We particularly liked Dinan, but Quimper and Quintin are lovely too and the beach at Sables d'Or les Pins is beautiful (even in October), we had a great lunch here at the La Potinière restaurant (be aware that most of the restaurants even in the bigger towns close around 14:00). Don't miss the lighthouse at Frehel along the coast. If you are into horses the Haras National de Lamballe at Lamballe is the national stud for the local breed of "postier" horses and the guided tour (in English) was excellent and educational.
Overall then a great place to stay.
Very well equipped cottage in a quiet rural location but with easy access to local villages / town and the wider Brittany area. The owners are very easy to deal with, helping with not only ferries, but also local directions to help find the cottage, and a kind offer of shopping in advance.
Cottage is set in its own grounds alongside another cottage owner by the same people and share a nice well furnished and heated pool which is positioned to make the absolute best of the great sunshine with plenty of open space around for games.
Inside there is a well equipped kitchen space and two nicely appointed bedrooms.
In short heart place to stay for exploring Brittany and a place we would definitely go back to if in this area again.
