Perfect base for Josselin

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was there. Including an excellent folder with suggestions of things to do in the area. The accommodation is beautifully presented. No effort required. The surrounding countryside offers lots of fabulous walks and Josselin is a delightful place.

Josselin is Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My family of six stayed in the gite in June of this year. I found the gite to be very modern inside, but still retaining some old world charm. The rooms are exceptional and very comfortable. There was plenty of storage for us all, as with kids you have to bring everything. The gite overlooks the chateau which is on the Nantes/Brest Canal and Josselin itself is beautiful. We did lots of touring around as plenty to see and do in the immediate area. Great gite for all the family. The owners were so welcoming and made our stay most enjoyable. This was one of my best holidays in France to date

Excellent Gite First Class

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the gite in the beginning of August with another couple

The gite is first class, spacious and fitted to a very high standard the view is spectacular as it overlooks the Chateau in Josselin

Josselin town centre is a few minutes walk away and has great bars and restaurants and all amenities

The Hosts were fabulous and nothing was to much trouble

Will definately recommend to family and friends and will return

Nearly Perfect

  • 4 of 5

The gite is perfectly situated to easily walk into Josselin with its lovely choice of shops and restaurants. It has been recently renovated and has an extremely well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge area.

Having free wifi was a great bonus which is partly why we chose this property.

There are just a few corrections needed on the description...

There is a lovely view of the chateau but no view of the canal from the gite.

We assumed 'utility room' would contain a washing machine but it doesn't.

The gite is advertised for 6 people but it would be a squeeze for 6 adults. The 3rd bedroom is small and has no storage so it is only really suitable for children. The dining table only comfortably seats 4.

Also, the headroom on the staircase is really low, I'm 5'1" and I only just cleared the ceiling! If you are tall like one of our party you risk banging your head frequently!

We enjoyed our stay regardless but with a few adjustments the gite would be fairly perfect.
