A Really Good Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a smashing time at Tirnanog. A warm welcome from Alice, she even put balloons on the gate so we wouldn't miss the house. Being met by a bottle of wine, teabags, milk etc was a nice gesture. The house was ideal, clean, tidy and in a lovely location, an easy walk for us into Spezet. The house was well equipped for a family, found the washing machine and tumble dryer handy for the childrens clothes! The children enjoyed the garden, couln't keep them off the swing and slide or out of the paddling pool. The small bikes went down a treat. We visited the beach at Kerval twice, beautiful and quiet. The children really enjoyed Oceanopolis in Brest. We discovered many beautiful walks that the whole family could take part in particulary along he nearby waterway. Spezet is a lovely little village, we enjoyed sitting outside the cafes with a glass of wine We wouldn't hesitate recommending Tirnanog to anyone. The area is beautiful, plenty to see and do, in fact too much to mention. We were provided with a wealth of information before we arrived. A really smashing holiday

The house is within walking distance of the colourful village of Spezet and a short drive to unspoilt and not crowded beaches. A short drive away is Huelgoat with its ancient forest and lake

The nearby village of Spezet has a number of excellent restaurants, several traditional bars and a charcuterie, chemist, boulangeries and post-office. The neighbouring town of Chateauneuf du Faou has supermarkets, restaurants and most things expected from a town. The weekly market is a must to visit, traditional in every way. Boats and canoes can be hired in Chateauneuf to explore the Aulne river and canal. At Chateaulin there is a Leclerc's hypermarket which caters for every need and the prices are reasonable. there are also opportunities for other outdoor pursuits such as golf, walking /hiking and horse riding, although these are more expensive. Anyone interested in folklore and ancient monuments will have many sites to visit in the vicinity.

Chateauneuf du Faou is only 8km away a beautiful Breton market town nestling in the Montagnes Noires. 18 bars, several good restaurants (recommend Le Relais de Cornouaille), regular Breton Festivals and a brilliant Jazz Festival on the banks of the beautiful River l'Aulne in August. The town is amazingly unspoiled and underplayed in all the guide books. The town of Carhaix is only 7km away. In late July it hosts a famous 3 day rock festival (U2 ,Bruce Springsteen, Muse and the Killers have recently played there). The medieval city of Quimper is a little over 20 minutes away with its spectacular cathedral, fascinating winding streets, half timbered buildings and chic shops, bars and restaurants. A little further inland lies the quaint lakeside town of Huelgoat with mystery walks into the forest with its enormous and fascinating boulders. Chateaulin is the largest main town to the house approximately 15 minutes away by car, and has a very reliable train station which goes to other larger towns like Brest or Quimper. Chateaulin is located on the banks of the river l'Aulne, it has plenty of shops, bars restaurants, banks and is renowned for its famous salmon run through the town with day permits readily available..

The area is steeped in myth and legend, Arthurian folklore abounds with tales of Merlin and his deeds, several places in the area claim to be Merlin' final resting place.
