This traditional cottage is a cosy escape for two, with all modern conveniences. The rooms are light and airy with open country views. There is a full kitchen, dining area and comfortable seating. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with adjacent shower room. At the front of the cottage there is a small private terrace with table and chairs. There are also large communal gardens to enjoy.
Le Petit Poubreu
Two cottages, one sleeping 2 and the other sleeping 4, are adjacent to the owners property in the tiny hamlet of Petit Poubreu. With large communal gardens the cottages are tastefully decorated to combine modern convenience with the traditional features of a Breton 'longere'. The picturesque village of St Laurent sur Oust is only five minutes walk away from the property. Here you will find tennis courts, a children’s play area and a local bar serving bread and groceries. Close by, the Nantes-Brest canal is ideal for walking, cycling or fishing. Just a short drive will take you to the Medieval market town of Malestroit where there are a selection of restaurants, bars, shops, banks and other facilities. There is a local market on Thursday mornings and live music on Friday evenings throughout the summer.

Super quiet retreat
Just what we needed as a quiet retreat between weeks of busy travel. We enjoyed the nearby town Malestroit (a 10 min drive or an hour 40 min walk -one way- along the canal)...great market on Thursday morning! Did some day trips to Carnac standing stones and other towns, most are 1.5 hours away. Would be a great biking area...pretty flat. Cozy cottage, comfortable bed and oh so quiet!
Thank you for your kind review. I am glad you enjoyed your peaceful stay.
A very quaint and peaceful gite that had everything required for a lovely stay. Ideally situated.
The gite was ideally situated to allow us to travel to many parts of Brittany mainly within an hour. The rustic feel of the gite allowed both my wife and I time to relax even after some fiercely competitive games of tennis on the local court.
What a fantastic cottage and location, we had a fantastic, relaxing time visiting many places in the area. With easy access to canal for cycling and walking into town, sampling great food and drinks in the many bars. Once again thanks to Don, a real nice, easy going chap. We will certainly be returning.

Perfectly situated and comfortable
Our plan is to stay a week at a time in many European places to discover the local areas. Harvest Cottage offered us an ideally situated base for this activity. The cottage and the surrounding facilities were as advertised. It was clean and comfortable providing us with everything to meet our needs. Don, the owner, was available if assistance was required. In all, a peaceful and relaxing setting.
June 2015 in Harvest Cottage
We had a nice stay here in June 2015. Its a rural location so a car is needed but the supermarkets are only 10 mins away. Host was english speaking and Wifi was available which was much appreciated. The gite is an ideal base for exploring Brittany as its South enough to get good weather and only 40 mins or so from the coast.
Thank you for your kind words.
Fantastic home from home
Our home for the fortnight was all I had hoped for and Don was the perfect host.
The photos on the website give a good idea of the cottage but perhaps make it appear a little smaller than it really is.
The four of us were able to relax immediately in the spacious cottage, and spent the next two weeks exploring the area, with several ideal suggestions from Don.
The accommodation was clean, and well maintained with more than enough cutlery, crockery and cookware.
The local area was great for walking, and I recommend the canal walk to Malestroit and back, with a short break in town for a coffee and crepe.
We're heading further South this year but wouldn't hesitate to return for another stay in the rainbow.
Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you and I hope to see you again one day.
The port side city of Vannes is just 30 minutes drive away and the Breton capital, Rennes at just 45 minutes on the N166. You can reach the nearest beach in 30 minutes but there are many others a little further away around the Gulf of Morbihan. You may prefer a stroll around the cobbled streets of Rochfort en Terre or a visit to La Gacilly, the home of perfumier Yves Rocher. The chateau at Josslin, the megalithic stones at Carnac and many other well preserved and interesting inland and coastal villages are all accessible for a day trip. At the Museum of the Resistance at St Marcel, just outside Malestroit, you will discover the history of the ‘maquis’ and the memorable battle that took place there during the second world war.
Full payment due 30 days prior to arrival. A security deposit of 200 euros is payable on arrival and returned in full at end of stay when there has been no damage.
