Fantastic

5 of 5
Very well equipped house in a beautiful part of the country. It is so peaceful yet only few miles from supermarkets. You could happily stay all week by the pool weather permitting. Rick and Karen are on hand to help with any problems and are so helpful. The welcome pack is very welcome. Thank you Kathy and Ewan we had another wonderful stay, you have a marvellous gem here.

Gem of a find - a really relaxing week!

5 of 5
You only have to read the previous reviews to get an accurate picture. If you want a "full on" holiday forget it - if you're looking for a relaxing hideaway for two to chill out, this is your place! Website pictures make the place look deceptively small; it's cosy, but not claustrophobic. Nantes to Brest Canal is two minutes walk and the bikes provided are ideal for exploring both this and the surrounding area - there are three easy circular bikes routes locally and details are highlighted on a board in the village (three minutes walk in the opposite direction of the Canal). We walked to Josselin (6 miles) which is a flat easy dander along the to a beautiful town - highly recommend the "Menu du Jour" at the Restaurant de Terrace as you walk into town. Four courses including wine for 12 euros - I thought my limited French was mistaken, but not only was it ridiculous value in a lovely garden environment, the food was actually very good!! Thanks for a great break - batteries recharged! Kenny & Maureen P.S. Champagne in Fridge a lovely touch! :-)
