Very well equipped cottage in a quiet rural location but with easy access to local villages / town and the wider Brittany area. The owners are very easy to deal with, helping with not only ferries, but also local directions to help find the cottage, and a kind offer of shopping in advance.
Cottage is set in its own grounds alongside another cottage owner by the same people and share a nice well furnished, fenced and heated pool which is positioned to make the absolute best of the great sunshine with plenty of open space around for games.
Inside there is a well equipped kitchen space with ample equipment for six, and two nicely appointed bedrooms. The proper also has its own small secluded patio looking out over a well established orchard.
In short geart place to stay for exploring Brittany and a place we would definitely go back to if in this area again.
Lovely secluded hideaway with everything you need within easy reach. The heated swimming pool an added bonus that keeps the children entertained come rain or shine. The property is so much larger on the inside than it looks and easily accommodated six of us.
So peaceful in the evenings with all manner of birds and wildlife around. The owners are so friendly and are only a phone call away should you need advice on anything. Highly recommended.
