Sharon Jones purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Sharon Jones chose Gueltas
We bought this property originally as a holiday home because of the scenery, the silence and the proximity of the canal, but we loved it so much we all moved out here permanently in 2006 and still love the area just as much. We love the walks along the canal and in the woods as each day seems to be different, and so much bird life, as well as red squirrels, deer and wild boar!
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage whilst attached to the rest of the property with a barn in between is completely self contained with a private west facing fenced garden.

Lovely house, peaceful & good location
A lovely house and garden that was great for the kids as well as a decked area for sitting out and enjoying a BBQ. The kids also loved the pool & inflatables, not to mention the swing ball, table tennis and other games provided.
The house is in an ideal location for exploring nearby towns and other activities. The setting is relaxed and peaceful and a great retreat at the end of the day.
The owners are on site and happy to give advice and recommendations if you would like them, but equally leave you in peace if not.
We had a lovely stay!
It was lovely to meet you all and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay.
Beautiful location and very well equipped
This is a beautiful property with lovely owners. Gite is very comfortable and homely with lots of outdoor space which is lovely and private. Peter and Sharon are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The gite is one of the best equipped we have stayed in and includes a variety of games for the children to play both indoors and outside. Girls loved the swimming pool and the fact that it was heated was an added bonus, the only drawback is there is nowhere to sit by the pool when the children were swimming and they have to be supervised whilst in the pool. WI-FI is very good (a must with a teenager!) and overall it was a lovely place to stay and relax.
Thank you so much for your review, it was a pleasure to meet you all and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Your comments about the pool seating have been taken on board and we add it to our list for next year.
Beautiful and relaxing spot
Had an amazing stay here, could not recommend it highly enough and hosts were lovely. Book!!
Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you all.
Perfect peace and tranquility!
We, two oap’s, were looking for somewhere where we could just be still and quiet and have a break from the hustle bustle of everyday life. We found it in spades!
We were blessed with total silence day in and day out, and the most wonderful short (or occasional long) walk down to the canal and back via the road.....we didn’t see the kingfishers so will probably have to return another year to experience that pleasure.
We cannot recommend the place highly enough. A wonderful holiday with very helpful owners on hand when needed,
Thank you for the lovely review. It was a pleasure meeting you.
Perfect for family stay
Ideal if you are looking to get away from hustle and bustle and wind right down. The owners are fabulous and couldn't be more helpful. The area is very rural, so perfect for countryside lovers and those looking for a quiet time. The Nantes - Brest Canel is just a 5 minute walk away and gives you cycle access to nearby Rohan for dinner and amenities (5 minutes in the car). If you are feeling more energetic you can cycle further and Pontivy is within reach. The area is very picturesque and Saint Nicolas des Eeau is one lovely place to visit for lunch.
The gite and garden are well equipped and the swimming-pool is great for warmer days. Our children made good use of the table-tennis. The Aquatides swimming-pool in Loudeac is a good rainy day destination.
Thank-you for a fantastic stay!
Thank you so much for a lovely review. It was a pleasure meeting you all and hope to see you again
Lovely gite in a beautiful location
Owners Pam, Derek, Sharon and Pete greeted us on arrival with a lovely bottle of wine and log fire. After showing us around the gite, they left us to our own devices and that is the way the week went. They were more than happy to chat, give advice as and when we wanted but did not intrude. The property was fully equipped and came with all those little essentials that everyone needs but is usually lacking in such properties. The location right next to the canal is absolutely beautiful and provides an excellent base for touring the rest of Brittany as you as slap bang in the middle. We very much appreciated the fresh asparagus that Derek cut for our BBQ and would highly recommend this property. Last but not least, we mustn't forget Bertie the dog - once again always on hand to give and received affection as and when wanted but otherwise stayed put of our way. A lovely weeks holiday thank you.
Thank you for such a lovely review. It was lovely to meet you all. Bertie loved the steak and sausage.
