Lac au Duc is just 15 mins drive away. This complex is a small haven for those loving watersports.

Les Loupiots du Lac features giant bouncy slides and castles providing hours of fun for those young at heart. The old historical towns of Dinan, Vannes, Rochefort en Terre, La Gacilly are all also worth a visit. Just 1 hrs drive away are the south coastal beaches and ports, all reminiscent of the Cornish Coast. The mysterious standing stones, 4000 of them erected during Neolithic times, 5000 - 2000 yrs BC lie in the town of Carnac.

Everyone was very helpful and we were greeted on arrival not only by the owner but also an English friend, which was useful as our french was not very good .
The house was spacious but luckily we only needed 4 bedrooms as two were out of commission
Many extras were available at the house (boules,tennis, pool etc ) although as we were exploring the area, we did not use them very much.
There were some maintanence issues but being practical people, we got through those.
The town of Josselin is delightful with everything you need, shops, restaurants, bars, museums, walks The walk into town was a little longer than expected and if with a family, a car would be essential.
A very pleasant week

Villa matches description exactly. Pictures definitely don't do the house or land you have justice. House seems to be well looked after and when the power went out in our last night the owners son arrived within minutes after phoning them.

Villa is a few minutes drive away from a super u which had everything you could need to enjoy your time away.
An hours drive and you can get to a fantastic little zoo which is great for all ages.
