The log burner was lovely. Bathrooms beautiful. The location was amazing , peaceful and tranquil , never got tired of the views. The supermarket is about 3 miles away an 5 minute drive and was so well stocked . From meat to clothes bedding even a fresh orange juice stand . We were sad to leave! Sylvie was very helpful and very kindly allowed us to check in early. About a 2.5 hr drive from st Malo ferry. Would love to visit again. Thank you

Friendly owners and everything you need for a stay close to the beaches of Carantec. We were pleased to have taken a DVD player and DVDs as there isn't one supplied. We felt the cottage was ideal for 2 although there is a sofa bed in the living area downstairs and a bed in the attic mezzanine above the 1st floor bedroom. We will definitely book again.
