Yet another lovely holiday at La Maison Bretonne. The house is very well equipped in a beautiful setting, with a pretty garden. We took our bikes and enjoyed cycling along the canal path which is just minutes from the house. Gouarec is a great base for exploring Brittany and there's plenty of places to visit only a short distance by car.

A charming genuine French house in a quiet location with lots of room indoors and out. I stayed here with my husband during a very cold spell in February, it was not a problem with the house having central heating, including a radiator in the bathroom. The house would be ideally suited to a family with young or teenage children who would like the games room and large garden with swings and a trampoline. A short distance down the road there is an indoor swimming pool but we didn't try it. The house was well equipped with everything that was needed. The owners were extremely helpful when we had to re-arrange our arrival date due to a cancelled ferry. The house is ideally located for anyone who likes walking. There are many way marked footpaths and canal walks in the area as well as other tourist attractions. For food shopping there is a fair sized spar shop at Gouarec and larger supermarkets and a Lidl at the nearby town of Rostrennen, which also has a good outdoor market.
