The Owner Recommends

Saint-Nic Beach and Surrounding Area.

Saint-Nic, will necessarily make you discover, among others, the churches, the dolmens, the coast, the marvelous beach, the shops, the market and the events of July and August enhancing local culture and traditions. In addition, if you are fond of hiking, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of paths along the coast or through the countryside. Do not forget, here or in the surroundings, to taste our local food, to visit our local handicraft shops and why not try to take part in our "breton" dances


In Finistère, not far from Brittany’s far western point, Quimper is a historic city permeated with this unique region’s identity.

The old town has medieval timber-framed houses with typical Breton granite at the base, and every few steps there’s a crêperie to tempt you.

The 13th-century cathedral is lauded as the most beautiful gothic building in Brittany, and the Locmaria quarter is where Quimper’s renowned faïence has been made since 1690. Come in July for the Festival de Cornouaille, with traditional costume, lots of dancing and bagpipe music.

Indulge in the ocean-fresh seafood and the delicious cider, which has designation of origin in the historic Cornouaille province.


In the Morbihan area of Brittany, Vannes invites you to wander around the well-preserved medieval streets before enjoying a harbour-side lunch or a boat trip around the gulf.

This is a great place to browse and amble at your leisure. On Tuesday and Thursday mornings you’ll find a pretty street market in Places Lices, vivid, colourful and vibrant. This is where jousting tournaments were once held but these days the only contests are among the sellers of fruit and vegetables, calling out to draw attention to the lush, shiny produce.

Very secluded and peaceful gite, in a good central location for reaching most of the attractions of western Brittany. Well kept and comfortable with plenty of space. We travelled with our 20 month old daughter - she loved playing in the garden, and there was a stair gate and cot set up on arrival (with a proper mattress, not one of the thin travel cot type). Worth mentioning that there's no wi-fi and we had no phone reception in the gite - it didn't really matter to us but might to some people. Also, there's old farm equipment around the grounds, so you do have to keep a close eye on young children. Jane, the property manager, was very quick to respond when contacted both before and after our stay and immediately dealt with any queries we had.
