The cottage has been lovingly restored and has rose terracotta tiled floors, oak beams and white walls and a comfortable home like feeling about it. There is a closed garden full of flowers surrounded by a little stone wall and the hamlet is very quiet, so children can run about freely and safely.

The garden is full of rhododendrons and camellias, rosemary and thyme and has parking space and a pleasant stone terrace.There is also garden furniture,table, chairs, sunbeds and a barbecue.

Our pet’s friends clean and quiet are wellcome . Just tell what type of animal for the booking. No cats!

Blue Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely peaceful place! We had a fantastic week and enjoyed the close proximity to the beaches and forest. The area is great with nice towns nearby. The Gite is almost too nice, spotlessly clean and as comfortable as my own home!! We regularly travel to France/Spain and normally avoid staying in place close to the owners. However, Magaly and Yannick have changed my stance and were welcoming and extremely helpful to have next door.

Thanks

Andy Una Saoirse and Orla.

A gorgeous cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage in a great location with everything you could need for your stay in Brittany.

We stayed for a week mid-September and found the area provided plenty for us to do, with so much more we would have loved to explore. The nearby beaches are easily reached by car or bike along well marked off-road tracks. The beaches themselves are gorgeous stretches of soft sand, backed by protected areas of sand dunes.

The woods just a short walk up the lane from the cottage are great for exploring by foot or by bike. We saw red squirrels, dolmens (ancient burial chambers), standing stones, lakes... a really magical place. At night you hear owls hooting and have stunning views of clear night skies.

The nearby town of Erdeven has everything you could need for supplies and the odd night out. A large Intermarche, butchers, bakers and an oyster shop. Perfect for stocking up for picnics on the beach and evening meals in the cottage garden.

The owners of the cottage, Yannick and Magaly, were supremely friendly and always ready to give help and advice. Thank you for making our stay so special - we look forward to coming back again.

Typisch bretonisches Gite, liebevoll renoviert

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben in diesem perfekt und sehr liebevoll eingerichteten und renovierten typisch bretonischen Granithäuschen (Anbau am Haus der Eigentümer) eine herrliche Woche verbracht. Es ist alles super sauber und gepflegt und total schön dekoriert. Auch der kleine Garten ist wunderschön mit den vielen Blumen. Magaly und Yannick sind sehr angenehme Gastgeber, sie sind da, wenn man Fragen hat, aber man fühlt sich völlig ungestört. Das Häuschen liegt in einer schönen Gegend, der optimale Standort, um die Küste und das Hinterland zu erkunden. Besonders haben uns die unglaublich vielen Steinreihen und Hügelgräber in der fussläufigen Umgebung beeindruckt (sehr geeignet auch für Radtouren). Sehr gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten im ca. 2km entfernten Erdeven. Ideal ist das Haus für 2 Erwachsene oder eine Familie mit kleinem Kind. Wir wären gerne noch länger geblieben und kommen gerne wieder !

excellente semaine

  • 5 of 5

Une excellente semaine passée dans ce gite. L'accueil était tout à fait remarquable, la location très bien équipée, et très bien tenue, avec une mention particulière pour la bibliothèque enfant.

Le gite est particulièrement bien situé, assez isolé pour être au calme mais proche de tous les sites intéressant du coin. La proximité des plages, comme de la forêt, le rende tout à fait appréciable pour passer un vrai temps de vacances.
