Melrand, France

Set in the heart of the countryside and unspoilt by tourism, this attractive village is the perfect location in which to both relax and energise yourself. Bigger towns such as Pontivy and Lorient are also just a short distance away for when you crave more man-made pleasures.

Canoes and mountain bikes can be hired locally, and a number of active days can be spent exploring the flora and fauna that the region has to offer. Although the use of a hire car is recommended when staying in this region, consider using a slightly more demanding method of transport for your exploring.

Melrand has a decent level of amenities for such a small village, with local shops including a traditional boulangerie, a butcher, a grocer, a couple of bars and an excellent restaurant. Although you will not find a pulsating nightlife in Melrand, an enjoyable meal and an entertaining night can still be had, all washed down with a glass or two of the excellent local wine.

The tiny hamlet of Talroch (or Tal Rock) is classed as part of Melrand, and can be reached on foot within just a few minutes from Melrand centre. Due to the excellent stonework found in Talroch the area is a protected heritage area, and a number of enjoyable walks also start and end in the hamlet.

There is everything you could wish for here and we wanted for nothing. On my first morning I was having a coffee, looking out of the kitchen window and a red squirrel ran across the road - heaven! Unfortunately I didn't see him again but it made my day! At the bottom of the road is the canal, you can walk into Gouarec in approximately 20 minutes. It is beautiful walking along the canal, we saw a Heron twice on the bank and two Egrets warming their wings at the top of a tree. If you have dogs then you can walk for as long as your legs can carry you but just remember you have to walk back! Not far away (approx. 10 minute drive) is the Lac de Guerlédan which is well worth a visit - absolutely stunning. The water was quite low as they are making repairs but I can imagine in the summer that it would be amazing! There are lots of walks along the banks. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the cottage, its comfortable, the décor is lovely and the location is great. There is a supermarket, a patisserie (stunning!!) and an English shop (it was shutting down when we were there but I was informed someone else was taking over!). Terry and Tina are a joy to deal with and will help you in any way they can to ensure you have a wonderful holiday! Enjoy!

We were welcomed by Dawn and Graham who were friendly, helpful and generous supplying a welcome pack, a supply of wood for the fire and their time. The location is tranquil and very rural - we loved sitting on the back terrace looking over the countryside and enjoying the late Autumnal sunshine. We had taken our bikes and within an easy driving distance were able to cycle along the glorious Nantes/Brest canal, nice and flat, very quiet and absolutely stunning. A dip in the heated pool completed a perfect days activities. There is surprisingly plenty to do in the area, lots of lovely villages to explore and beautiful beaches within reach, although a bit quiet in October! We enjoyed a couple of lunches out in local creperies but in the evening preferred to stay in our cosy cottage around the fire. We would, without hesitation, recommend this property to others.
