Beaches.

The coastline of southern Brittany is about an hours drive. Carnac with it's beautiful sandy beaches and easy access is also famous for it's standing stones. There are about 3,000 of these aligned megaliths which date from 4,000 BC. The west side of the Quiberon Peninsula is known as the Cote Sauvage – excellent for surfing. The sheltered eastern side has safe, calm sandy beaches perfect for families.

Cycling

The tow paths along the canal are well kept and ideal for walking and cycling. For cyclists an hour in each direction takes you to Rohan, Roc-Saint André and the very pretty village of Monterlot.

Josselin

Josselin, a "medieval city" lies on the Nantes- Brest canal and with it's chateau and timbered buildings is a must-see on a visit to Brittany. The picturesque square with it's cafes is the ideal place to while away an hour or 2. There is a busy market on Saturday morning.

This is an excellent holiday cottage. The location is great if you want a quiet, relaxing holiday. The property is very well equipped and tastefully furnished. It is extremely clean and well maintained.There is a garden and a place to park. The owner is extremely helpful and did everything he could to ensure we had a comfortable and relaxing stay. The property is as described in the advert.

The property is well placed for exploring the southern part of Brittany. The delightful town of Josselin is just a few miles away and there are plenty of gorgeous towns and villages in the vicinity. There are lots of opportunities for walking and cycling near by. There are also plenty of historic attractions in the area. The property is in a beautiful rural setting.

I would stongly recommend this property to others
