|Ty Flowery||Self Catering||Saturday||2||4||2|
Ty Flowery gite is an ideal holiday home choice for families; children of all ages are welcome here, and we are delighted if the family dogs join you on holiday.
Our well maintained gite has a relaxed atmosphere, a large garden and unrestricted access to the swimming pool (size 9 x 4.5m) with its decked surround and sunloungers - this area of the grounds is fenced and gated for safety and privacy.
The local area has lots to see and do, there is a lake with fishing and canoeing nearby and a forest with hiking, cycling and horse-riding trails.
There are various World War II museums, including the U-boat pens in Lorient, to visit.
For horse lovers at Hennebont there is a national stud which offers tours and Breton horse displays.
If you enjoy markets there are several good weekly outdoor markets within an easy drive.
The safe, sandy beaches and clear waters of the Gulf of Morbihan, the amazing standing stones at Carnac and the lovely cathedral city of Vannes are all less than an hour away.
We live next door to Ty Flowery, so are on hand to assist if you need advice during your holiday.
Out of peak season we are happy to be completely flexible about changeover days and lengths of stay.

We had such a happy stay at Ty Flowery. It was more rural than we were expecting (i.e. no eating out in the evenings) but we made the most of it and explored the local area at a very gentle pace. We especially enjoyed the large garden and relaxed onsite owners who let us have the run of the place - especially the pool!
Our highlights were jumping in the lake at Priziac (after cycling the 6km there on very quiet back roads), a golf-buggy tour of Parc Aquanature at Stérou and simply just spending time at the Gite. The doggies were lovely too.
It was the perfect low key holiday for me, my husband and our 5 and 8 year-old kids.
We spent a delightful week at Ty Flowery. The property was located in a lovely setting and was in immaculate condition. Due to the hot weather the pool was a bonus to our 2 teenage grandkids, small children could not use it unsupervised. Rebecca, the owner, is a terrific host and gave us complete access to her 2 characterful dogs. The local village is pretty quiet with just one small bar and no shops, so a car is essential. The location is nice and central so places like Lorient and Vannes are under a hour away. Guemenes is about 10 minutes away and has a Intermarche their. Also found Aux Sabots Rouges, an excellent restaurant.
We highly recommend Ty Flowery for both families and couples.
This was a fantastic Gite in a wonderful location - we loved it! Local amenities were sparse, but that was what we were expecting. We hope to return next year.
Very clean compared with others we have stayed at and the owners were friendly.
Although only a mile from the nearest village there wasn't much there apart from a bar but the next village had a Boulangerie/patisserie and the supermarkets and restaurants were only a 15 minute drive.
The tv reception wasn't working when we arrived but was promptly attended to after I mentioned it to the owner.
My only suggestion to improve would be for a bin and a shelf for toiletries in the shower/bathroom.
Overall this was an excellent gite and we enjoyed our peaceful stay.
