This was a wonderful gite - there were only two of us but it would be ideal for a large family. The gite had really good facilities, everything had been thought about and the bottles of wine and basic groceries that were left for us were really welcome and a lovely touch.The garden is out of this world!! and a real credit to whoever does it!!. As for days out - we would recommend Le Bon-Repas and Lac Guerledan - gorgeous places and just up the road. We went to the coast twice - North and West - fair drive about an hour or so but the roads are good and the views were worth it !Would recommend for a relaxing holiday.

Owner response

Thank you for your kind comments Sarah.

It was a lovely house with all the comforts of home, we enjoyed all the games in the cellar and had a laugh trying them out. We had a few rainy days so we didn't make the most of the really beautiful garden but there was the TV, Wi-Fi and plenty of board games. we had a lovely meal in the pizza restaurant and the place over the bridge by the canal in the village We had a great holiday here and would recommend it to anyone especially families with children. Thanks Clive and Frankie

This is our second stay at this property and again it was great. The property is well maintained and fully equipped with everything that we needed. The garden has its own apple and pear trees and a lovely new summerhouse which was ideal for the two of us to sit out with a glass of wine and a book.
In the village the tabac does a really good lunch and there is a good Pizza restaurant.

We would also suggest the bar at Bon Repo for both coffee and food.

We had a lovely 2 weeks at this cottage in Gouarec. Clive and Frankie were very easy to deal with and the cottage and Garden were just as described. The house was very clean and comfortable and the garden was a lovely quiet space to relax.

The village has some local restaurants and a boulangerie and is a great place to explore the surrounding area. We took our bicycles and went on a few runs along the Nantes/Brest Canal and green way routes.

We have a couple of teenage kids who were thrilled with the games room and the first class Wi-Fi

Many thanks from the Griffiths family.
