The Owner Recommends


The village of Bubry is an easy walk for fresh bread and croissants and local shopping.The varied coast with sandy beaches at Kerhilio and rocky coves on the Quiberon peninsular are 30 - 45 minutes driveThe Blavet river has canoeing and fishing and the towpath is excellent for cycle rides.(Bikes can be hired in Pontivy) . The restored Breton village of Poul Fetan close by is fun for all the family .The historic towns of Vannes, josselin, Auray, Pontivy are well worth a visitThe lovely walled town of Vannes is a must on any visit to Morbihan. Take a walk around the narrow, cobbled streets, through the medieval gates, before settling down for lunch at a café alongside the attractive marina. If you’re with the kids, head down to the Parc du Golfe for a look around the aquarium and Jardin aux Papillons (butterfly garden). Once one of the busiest ports in Brittany, picture-perfect St-Goustan is now one of the most popular sites in Morbihan. Enjoy lunch in a waterside restaurant while admiring the half-timbered houses before joining a boat trip around the gulf or crossing the stone bridge to explore Auray.West of Mûr-de-Bretagne is the Lac de Guerlédan, Brittany’s largest lake. Not only is this the perfect place for sunning yourself or messing about on the water but the area also offers extensive trails for walking and cycling. The Quénécan forest and Abbaye de Bon Repos are not to be missed.

A superb venue for a family holiday (there were 9 in our group, 3 generations plus a dog). The facilities at Bretinio are excellent - outside the pool, BBQ, and table for dining were all used extensively. We used the gravel area for boules matches. Inside we tended to use just one of the two large lounge areas, so the younger generation could explore the collection of videos. The 5 bedrooms are comfortable and the 2 bathrooms with showers are fine. All the facilities were clean and well-maintained.

As Bretinio is located at the end of a lane, well away from other properties, there is no chance of inflicting noise on the neighbours or suffering from traffic noise. However, it is only a pleasant 15-mijnute walk through the woods to the village of Bubry with supermarket and cafes. Unfortunately the local creperie was not open on the day we wanted to visit, and there only cafes in the village, but it was only a short drive to the village of Melrand - La Tourelle restaurant recommended.

We had an excellent week at Bretinio, and we hope to return in the future.
