About this property

A Cottage with Large Shared Heated Pool. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

It's the perfect location for a family holiday to relax and explore this beautiful and unspoilt corner of France. A self catering holiday cottage in a 16th century Breton farmhouse courtyard setting surrounded by large gardens with a shared heated swimming pool, near Lac de Guerledan in Brittany.
At Les Rossignols we offer you rural Brittany at its most enchanting, an idyllic retreat from the hurly burly of modern life where deer and wild boar roam the forests and fields and all sorts of birds nest in our gardens. We love it here in our rural idyll, the skies are clearer and bluer - there's no pollution; the grass and trees really are greener, and because there's no light pollution the night sky is very dark and you'll see so many stars that you'll think you could just reach up and pluck one to keep! Your holiday is important to you, and its important to us to make sure you have a great time. After all, we'd like to see you again some time! We believe that happy children make happy parents, so we aim to be family-friendly and have a range of baby equipment available at no extra cost, and also play equipment and toys for all ages!
Our beautifully restored 16th century Breton farmhouse is in a courtyard setting surrounded by lovely gardens including our large shared heated pool and children's play area. We are situated in the rural heart of Brittany in the historic hamlet of Rosquelfen very close to the wonderful Lac de Guerledan in one of the prettiest parts of Brittany, and easy driving distance from the beautiful Pink Granite Coast to the north, and the Gulf of Morbihan to the south. But its just a 3 minute drive to collect those French breakfast essentials: freshly baked baguettes and croissants, or for the more energetic just a 15 minute walk to Gouarec!
Our holiday properties are very well equipped and our large shared heated swimming pool is thoughtfully situated to be easily accessible but it is fenced and gated for your children's safety. Our pool is about 36 feet by 15 feet by 4 feet deep. It has wide shallow roman steps leading down into the main swimming area. These steps are ideal for toddlers and small children to paddle and play in the warm water. It is surrounded by a paved area which is itself surrounded by lawns screened by shrubs and trees for your privacy. There are plenty of shared sunloungers, chairs, tables and parasols set around the pool. There are also lots of shared inflatables to play with in the pool as well as a separate small inflatable paddling pool for babies. The pool will be open from early May to late September.

Lovely place to stay for a relatively quiet, easy holiday. Setting is lovely and facilities great for younger kids. Hosts very kind and thoughtful. Lots of nice touches to help the kids feel at home. Heated pool was great. Nearby lake beautiful and good for swimming. We had a lovely time.

Fantastic gites run by a lovely couple. Ideal for children - the play barn is particularly nice to have.

A really great stay that we would recommend to any other family with small children.
The owners were very attentive and thoughtful, and ensured that all our needs and wishes were met during our stay.
Also, the location of the cottage was excellent in terms of being able to reach a number of exciting surrounding towns and cities within approx. 90 minutes.
