Carnac Plage also happens to be a popular seaside resort providing a good day out for all the family. Ploermel, 15 mins drive away, is a small haven for those loving watersports. waterskiing, sailing and boating are all available on this popular resort. Also find here a manmade beach, restaurant, small pool, park, golf, bowling and cinema. Supermarkets, shops and further restaurants are all closeby in Ploermel and Josselin.

We were a party of six, ranging from a 14 year old to a 66 year old. We had a great 2 weeks and cannot fault the accommodation, owners and location. Having holidayed in France for over 25 years, this was without doubt our best ever vacation in a wonderful part of the country.

Everything is provided for and the pool and games room are exceptional. We would definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Chris and Caroline were always available without being intrusive, and nothing was too much trouble.Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

The property was very well appointed with everything we needed and more. We were threee generations with ages from 2 to 70 and the accommodation suitedus all.

The location was lovely but the gite is in a village with no amenaties at all. The nearesr supermarket was only 10 or 15 minutes away so was accessable.Nonetheless the facilities of the house itslef (swimming pools, trampoline, tree house, graound and games etc.) meant the whole family was happy to stay at the house much of the week we spent there.

The owners were very friendly and co-operative.. The information they provided before hand was excellent and they responded quickly and helpfully to any questions.

I would thoroughly recommend this property.

Just returned from fantastic 1 week stay at Maison de Maitre, would very happily book again. The owners, Chris and Caroline, couldn't have been more helpful, with prompt communication the whole time. They allowed us early access and late departure which was very helpful in the heat with a party of 5 children, 4 parents and 2 grand-parents. Any queries and they were on the case immediately.
A great historic property with lots of space inside and out. Large shady garden and safely fenced pools, 1 paddling and 1 swimming depth. Lovely terrace and parasol-shaded tables for dining by the barbecue. Plenty of games and spacious games room for entertaining the children. Best equipped French rental we've stayed at.
The village is very quiet: no bar to disturb the evening peace, so ideal for large groups with smaller children. Leclerc and Super-U (both shut Sunday) just 3.2 miles away at Josselin, well stocked with fresh produce. Boulangerie there or in centre of Josselin as well as an excellent Boulangerie/Patisserie at Taupont about 13 minutes drive.
Why drive to the crowded coast when there is the excellent family orientated Lac au Duc just 15 minutes away? Safe beach with fresh water swimming, watersports centre with good dinghy rental etc. Josselin is a beautiful little medieval town with quaint cafes and restaurants. Electric boat hire on the canal entertained the older young children and their parents. The Medieval festival was appreciated by all.

The property was absolutely perfect for our needs (two families with 3 under 2s) and the children were constantly entertained with the variety of toys available and English TV meant they could still watch their cartoons. The toddler pool was great for them although they loved the big pool too and could easily navigate the steps in and the gated element meant they couldn't go in without us there which meant we could also relax. The garden was great and our 2 yr old now wants us to buy him a trampoline as he enjoyed the one there so much. The whole outside was incredibly safe for children and the property is gated all the way around so they could run off and play safely with us knowing they couldn't get out. The owners were very attentive and always on hand to help if we needed it and the property was well stocked with all necessary facilities. You can't really walk to any shops or restaurant but they are only a short drive away and the property provided a good central base for us to enjoy the region especially the Branfere zoo which is probably the best zoo we've ever been to.
