10 / 10 Garde peche 6 June, 2017

We've stayed at La Petite Maison several times and we absolutely love it. Quiet hamlet set in beautiful Breton country side near the small town of Huelgoat. Huelgoat has some nice pubs and several restaurants, one in particular the Pont Nuef is a typical Breton creperie good food and it is set next to a beautiful lake, when the weather is good you can eat by the lake. Near La Petite Maison is the small village of Berrien a short walk through the quiet country lanes where you'll find a nice bar and a good boulangerie. La Petite Maison is lovely small Breton cottage well presented and has all you need for a comfortable stay. We can't wait to return.

A beautiful cottage in the secluded Hamlet of Cos Castel near Huegoat. La petite Maison is a jewel that we discovered by accident it has everything that you will need for a comfortable stay in Finnisterre. Close to Morlaix,set in the national park,it's only minutes from Huelgaot. Take time to chill and go for a walk in the quiet lanes,and at night there are no street lights you can sit in the garden and star gaze awesome! The cottage is well equipped everything you will need from cooker to washing machine. Thank you Malcolm and Penny hope to return soon.
