Wonderful cottage. A real home from home. Will definately be returning. Mike and Midge fab hosts.

5 of 5
Wonderful cottage in a quiet little village not far from bigger towns. Very well equiped. Owners were very welcoming and gave us loads of useful information. Nothing was too much trouble. The pattiserie lady coming round in the mornings was a real treat as was the local Bistro. We enjoyed using the heated pool and the rowing boat on the river a short walk away. Very relaxed atmosphere around the village. The locals are very friendly.

A Year in Lanmeur Gite

4 of 5
We are a retired couple and had decided to spend at least a year in Brittany. We are now moving on to sample life in Spain for a while! The Gite is very roomy with comfortable beds and a really good shower! It is clean and well decorated. The garden is lovely and totally safe for dogs, as it is well fenced. Our dachshunds have loved it here. Also, Eve is very good with animals and they have adopted her home as a second residence! She is also very knowledgeable on what's on locally and helpful if you need advice on anything French. After living here for a year the only downside we have found is that it is very damp and cold here in the Winter months. There are electric heaters in the Gite, but these are very expensive to run and not that efficient. The Gite is lovely most of the year, just not so good then. The area around here is very beautiful with the forest literally on the doorstep. There are lots of well signposted walking routes and cycling along the canals, if you like it flat, or roads, if you don't mind the hilly bits! There are also a multitude of events on most of the time and you are spoiled for choice. The Winter was, for us, the only time when it got really quiet and the weather is cold and wet, so not so good for outside activities. Also, during this time, there is hunting in the forest, so you need to be aware of this and plan your walks accordingly. However, there is English TV here, so that was great and we had brought lots of books, games, etc with us anyway. Eve does provide all this usually, but she had kindly made room for our personal bits and stored her things elsewhere. The nearest supermarkets are at Clegeurec and Mur, which are about 5 miles away. There is usually an English film at the cinema in Guemene, about 13 miles away, once a week. The bar at St Brigitte is run by English people and very friendly, with a mix of French and English people. You can get milk fresh from Jean Marc at the local farm. We have enjoyed our time here and found Brittany a joy to discover.

Lovely House!

5 of 5
Very nice property in a quiet and private location. The kids loved the loft room, the swimming pool and playing hide & seek and the large gardens. We enjoyed sitting out in the evening with a drink, watching the bats. The house is nicely located within cycling distance of Pluméliau where we visited the bakery and the excellent Pizza restaurant. Sue, the owner, was very helpful and answered all our email enquiries promptly. We are planning to return to Les Châtaigniers next year
