Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Saint-Thelo, France, Your Home Away From Home

Saint-Thelo is a small village located approximately 30 kilometres from the Brittany coast in France, and just a few kilometres outside the larger town of Loudeac. A holiday rental cottage in Saint-Thelo is the perfect base from which to explore the Brittany region by day, and relax in comfort at night. With all the mod-cons that you would expect from a quality rental, this is more of a home-away-from-home than a characterless hotel room will ever be.

Things to Do on Holiday in Saint-Thelo, France

The beauty of the French countryside will soon invite you to partake in any number of outdoors pursuits. One day, you might find yourself fishing along a river bank, and the next, you might be on a half day horse ride. Walkers and cyclists will be pleased with the varied routes that they can take, and Lake Guerledan is a centre for all manner of water-based activities. If this wasn’t enough, there is also a golf course within 30 minutes’ drive of the holiday rental cottage in Saint-Thelo.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Saint-Thelo, France

There are so many places to visit in this area of France, that you could probably only skim the surface during a two week holiday in Saint-Thelo. With the use of a car, you could drive along the fabulous pink granite coast, and marvel at the unique cliffs, before reaching the town of St. Malo. A trip to Le Mont St Michel is also recommended, and this outstanding monastery is well deserving of its UNESCO world heritage status. The medieval towns of Dinan and Moncontour can also be visited, and there are dozens of chateaux scattered throughout the region, all deserving of further investigation.

Weather in Saint-Thelo, France

Most people choose to book self catering accommodation in Saint-Thelo during the summer months, as the weather is by far at its best then. Expect the temperatures to be consistently above 20 degrees Celsius, and on occasion even touch 28 degrees during the hotter days. Rain is minimal at this time of year, as most of the annual 25 inches falls during the autumn and winter. Winter temperatures can reach as low as freezing in the very coldest months, but more normally average at 9 degrees.

Travel to Saint-Thelo, France

It is quite possible to drive from the UK to France using a ferry to cross the channel from Poole to Cherbourg, and this will then give the use of a car during your holiday in Saint-Thelo. This can be a great benefit in seeing the Brittany region, and saves on the cost of hiring a car. The other alternative is to fly, and possibly the best airport to use would be at Rennes Saint Jacques (RNS). A small regional airport, its options are limited to the smaller airline Flybe, who operate flights from Manchester (MAN), Southampton (SOU), Exeter (EXT) and Edinburgh (EDI).

Lovingly renovated and well-equipped, it did everything it said on the tin. It was also very easy to find, despite being buried deep in the Brittany countryside - we just put Ty Griffet into google maps and it took us straight there.  And when we arrived there was a welcome pack of essential goodies waiting for us.  The house is well fitted out: The beds are very comfy, the internet is good, the pool temperature was spot-on and there was even a good selection of DVDs. There was no shortage of anything in the cupboards, although we didn't do any cooking. Except, of course, for crisping-up the french-bread to go with fresh prawns in their shells... my all-time favourite snack! We loved the garden too: spacious, quiet and private - as did Ellie, our spaniel, who thought she owned the place.  The nearest town is Pontivy, which  has many beautiful old buildings and is only 10 minutes away by car. And even if the French shops do seem to close at all hours of the day, the Inter-Marche supermarket has a great selection of fresh fish, wine and local cheeses. Even better, and much to our surprise and delight, they also stock a particularly nice local wheat beer (Britt Blanche) To top it all, we had great weather too - over 30 degrees on several days.  All in all, a very relaxing stay in a charming, lovely cottage .

The house is the only one on the road so a car passing is an event. We spent our evenings sitting out listening to only insects, birds and the odd cow...quite the novelty for a Londoner! The house is very well kept with large rooms. The information book provided us with everything we needed to know about the property and the surrounding areas; very useful for days out. All and all, a great stay and I will definitely be visiting again.
