THE LOCATION: Quiet and peaceful. The hamlet is made up of half a dozen houses with beautiful walks along the river and in the woods nearby. However, less than a 2 minute drive away is the quiet yet friendly village of Lanrivain with its boulangerie, small grocery store, post office, cafes and restaurant. St Nicolas du Pelem is 10mins away with all its amenities including supermarket, banks, newsagent, pharmacy, restaurants, municipal pool and sports facilities and the traditional Breton towns of Rostrenen and Bourbriac and easily reached within 15mins.

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS: Less than 30mins drive away is the stunning Lake Guerledan with its pedalos, kayaking, boat trips, fishing, horse riding, small beach, cafes and restaurants. Equi-distance heading North is Guingamp with its restaurants, bars, traditional buildings with period facades, whisky distillery and lively festivals in July and August. With numerous quiet lanes in the area and the Nantes-Brest canal nearby, the area is fantastic for cycling and walking. Plenty of beautiful beaches and coves too within reasonable driving distance.

There really is something for everyone - markets are regularly held in many of the local towns and villages nearby selling fresh produce and Breton specialities. Festivals and events celebrating Breizh (Breton) culture often take place during summer months to which visitors are always welcome .

The beauty of being centrally located is that nowhere is too far. Most parts of Brittany and their key attractions are easily accessible. With a great, yet generally quiet road network, it's easy to explore the coastal areas and stunning beaches of Northern, Western and Southern Brittany as well as the larger attractions the area has to offer such as aquariums, castles, historic towns (Dinan, Josselin, Vannes to name but a few), water and adventure parks - each one a perfect day trip.We have plenty of visitor leaflets in the property as well as a comprehensive information pack to get the most out of your stay

GETTING THERE: The port of St Malo is the closest and approx. 1hr 40mins away. The crossings to Cherbourg and Caen are quicker but the drive to the property is further (Caen 2hrs 50mins & Cherbourg 3hrs 10mins). The nearest airport is Dinard which is approx 1hr 30mins away. There are also airports in Rennes and Nantes. The tunnel is another option, however the drive from Calais is approx. 6hrs.

OTHER USEFUL INFO: We don't live close by so you won't need to worry about us popping around - however, we can be contacted via phone or email and are more than happy to help in any way we can. We also have superb help living locally who can be called upon if you have any issues or need any assistance.

Whilst there is no WiFi available within the gite itself it is sometimes possible to get WiFi within the Laundry room !! - it supports functionality such as web browsing and checking emails ONLY.

Everything in the gite is set up for our visits but also with you in mind. No smoking. No pets. We should also point out that using equipment on site such as the pool, climbing frame, swings and games room is done so at guests' own risk. Please be kind and respectful and leave the property as you find it.

About Rachel Price

Passionate about France having studied French many many moons ago!

Finally decided to buy our own little hide-away in rural Brittany as it was easy to get to with two school aged boys (hoping their French will improve!) and a great central location to share with others.

Adore French food and wine. Love experiencing the traditional, laid back way of everyday French life with all it has to offer including visiting the local markets and sitting in cafes watching the world go by.

Brittany has always appealed - maybe something to do with our Celtic roots?!. There's so much to do - relaxing on beaches, walking the dramatic coastline, cycling along the canals, fishing, horse riding, exploring the historic towns and discovering wonderful bars and restaurants.

average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Well equipped, very clean & spacious gîte. Our only disappointment was only English TV, no French TV

  • 4 of 5

This was the last week of our 4 week holiday in France, (Vendee, Loire & lastly Brittany) we have holidayed in France for over 20yrs but have never been to Brittany. For us the area is too much like Wales & Cornwall. We also had typical English weather, rain, rain & more rain.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your comments - so glad you found our gite so well euipped, clean & spacious. Sorry you were disappointed with lack of French TV but our web description clearly states English TV and has not been an issue with previous guests. Sorry you experienced so much rain during your stay - such a pity. Think you were very unlucky as there's been plenty of sunshine so far this season and of course, everywhere looks far better in a bit of sunshine!
