This is an excellent small group of Gites and a large house in a rural setting. The Gite was excellent with plenty of space and very well finished. It sits not far from a quiet village with great shops and larger supermarkets close by. Our hosts/owners were very friendly and helpful and really made us welcome. As a location it was central in Brittany to easily get to many of the areas towns and sights. The area is very quiet with hardly any traffic on the roads which was perfect. We needed a quiet relaxing break at that was exactly what we got. We would highly recommend the Gite and the area. We were surprised that many restaurants in the area were closed as the owners were also on holiday, but if you go a little further away to the east you will find plenty. Not a problem for us as we enjoyed home cooking and the Gite has everything you need.

Lovely place, immaculately presented. Kind and friendly owners. Great for exploring Nantes Brest canal and Huelgoat and day trips to beaches.

Accommodation was excellent and highly recommened. Mike and Sharon were very friendly and helpful during our stay. There is a boulangerie in nearby Plonevez-du-Faou and supermarket in Chateauneuf-du-Faou just a short drive away. The gite is located a few miles away from a main road that is being upgraded and provides easy access to places to visit whilst there are many quiet lanes and roads around the gite for walking and cycling for those who do not want to venture too far.

Lovely well appointed spacious gite in a quiet rural location. Ideal for returning to after a day exploring various parts of Brittany. Mike & Sharon are friendly helpful hosts who were always on hand with advice about places to visit and making sure everything was to our satisfaction. Would highly recommend for anyone who wants a relaxing week of peace and quiet in a scenic part of France
