Ty Puits Noir is on the edge of the village of Kernascléden in the Morbihan department of Brittany.
The gite is attached to the owner's home though completely independent with its own private garden. The garden overlooks fields, with a bridle path. Although within the village boundary the house is secluded and surrounded by its own grounds of about 1 acre. Its a 2 minute walk into the middle of the village to pick up a fresh baguette in the mini market.
