A great location to tour Brittany in all directions. The close locality also has many pleasant attractions and days out. Dean and Maxine were most helpful and flexible. Would not hesitate to recommend if rural France is your taste.

The kitchen had everything you might need and we took advantage of the bbq and as the weather wasn't great we enjoyed making a real fire in the living room in the evening. We did a lot of cycling and walking so it was great that there was a washing machine and line to keep things clean, even a ironing board & iron. Loved the comfy bed and had great nights sleep every night! Caurel is a very quiet and typical Brittany village but everyone was so friendly, and the lake and surrounding countryside was beautiful. We can't wait to go back again in the future!
