About this property

18th Century Breton Cottage, Beautifully Restored. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Wisteria Cottage is part of an 18th century longhouse that has been beautifully and lovingly restored to provide 21st century living. With vaulted ceilings and a Breton fireplace you will immediately feel 'at home' the moment you walk through the door.
The double bedroom with en suite and  twin room with adjacent shower room is supplied with quality bed linen for a good nights rest. Enjoy our fluffy towels, luxurious robes and Body Shop products. There are beach towels provided for use on trips to the beach or with our wood burning hot tub. Here you can sit with a glass of wine under star-filled skies which benefit from our lack of light pollution. For those who need to keep in touch free wi-fi is available.
All this sits in the heart of Southern Brittany's most beautiful countryside and forms part of Nevedic, (meaning 'little sanctuary' in Breton), a small hamlet within a conservation area, of which the peace and tranquillity has hardly changed since the reign of Louis XIV.
Discover at your leisure 1 acre of garden complete with orchard, a potager full of flowers, herbs and vegetables, all of which you are welcome to sample. Poul Fetan, the 16th century museum of French Culture is just 5 a minutes walk away and makes for a perfect day out with costumed hosts and a tavern selling local cider and Breton meals. The Nevedic Woods have many paths leading to the Blavet River, where you will find a weir and a small cafe (open throughout the high season). The woods provide excellent opportunities for mountain biking.
Along the River Blavet runs a cycle/footpath passing through towns and hamlets from Pontivy to the coast. This path is perfect for walking, fishing and especially cycling. The small town of Quistinic can also be reached via Nevedic Woods for those who like a good walk (25 minutes). Here you will find a store selling many general household items including fresh bread, cakes and milk. There is also a pharmacy, postal service, creperie with bar and a small bar/newsagent.
Large supermarkets, bars, restaurants and numerous shops can be found in Baud a 20 minutes drive away. There are many beaches within a 45 minutes drive. If you like browsing town markets there is at least one to be found everyday.

Please enquire about our special accompanied walking and cycling days.

Popular beach areas include Carnac, La Trinite Sur Mer, Larmor Plage, and St Pierre-Quiberon. Quiet beaches, with nature reserves, big sand dunes and wide open spaces can be found from Gavres to Penthièvre. Beaches in general never get crowded and are very clean.

The roads are maintained in good condition and offer quiet and exciting cycling opportunities for intermediates and advanced level cyclists. The River Blavet towpath stretches for many miles, it is well maintained and level, ideal for novice cyclists or those who want a quiet undemanding day out. There are 2 lunch venues within easy reach along the towpath.

We had a great stay in Wisteria Cottage. It’s a beautiful traditional cottage which has been well furnished. The kitchen is very well equipped and we enjoyed shopping locally and cooking with fantastic ingredients to be enjoyed with the wine! The weather was not great but our boys enjoyed the challenge of the log burning stove!
We enjoyed being able to relax in the hot tub in the evenings, whilst our teenage sons were happy to have WiFi and English tv!
We visited many local towns and also the submarine base (there is a nice creperie there if members of the family need bribing!).
The owners were very helpful with information about the local area.
A very relaxing break in lovely surroundings!

Owner response

Thank you for this generous review and ratings.
We always enjoy hosting families and know how important the wifi and TV seem for the younger members of the family.
We hope you have plenty of happy memories of your holiday!

The gites are located close to the River Blavet in beautiful quiet relaxing garden and countryside yet just a few minutes from local shopping facilities. The area is perfect for a relaxing or sightseeing holiday.
The gites of which there are 3 are stocked with everything required. Fully fitted kitchen with all you would require. We stayed in Wysteria gite this year which is the 2 bedded gite. We stayed as two couples each bedroom with it's own bathroom. Downstairs there is a lovely wood burning gite, 2 settees, large dining table, tv with lots of dvds, a bookcase with a wide variety to choose from, a well,stocked kitchen and a music player. Upstairs each bedroom has fluffy towels and robes along with high quality bedding.
The owners provide a more than generous welcome basket with lots of lovely goodies to help kick start the holiday.
The garden outside has various seating areas, a wood fired hot tub along with various seating to relax and enjoy the garden.
Each gite also has it's own outside furniture with table for alfresco dining. .
