Visitor suitability

Pen at Voas suits all ages and is set in a very peaceful and quiet environment. The local area offers a wide variety of entertainment and it is up to you as our guests to do as much or as little as you chose to.

We have had families with young children, families with teenagers, young and more mature couples. Everyone has found activities to suit them from touring brocantes and boot sales to days spent on the numerous local beaches sunbathing or collecting cockles to bowling and paintballing or walking the many "randonee" routes.

We do not have specific disabled access and our courtyard is laid to gravel making wheelchair access very difficult. We do have ground floor toilets and shower rooms and can organise ground floor sleeping arrangements should they be required

We had a lovely stay in Lavender gite at Pen Ar Voas. The owners are very kind and helpful throughout the booking. If you wish, a welcome meal awaits you when you arrive and Lianne is a good cook.
The area around Plestin Les Greves is beautiful, near the sea and not far from Morlaix and Lannion two towns full of interesting historical buildings , shops and character.
Locquirec a small town by the coast is near ancient Roman bathing remains at Hogolo.. There are many restaurants; beaches for families and walks by the sea.

The weekly markets in Plestin, Lannion , Morlaix and Locquirec are worth visiting for fresh Breton produce. Also near the gite are supermarkets and a Biocoop.
The location of the gite, an old farm in a valley is ideally situated for an excellent holiday in Brittany.

We spent 6 nights over the Christmas and New Year period with our three teenage children. Jon and Lianne were the perfect hosts.
The Gites are a short journey to the beach and is an ideal base if you wish to venture further into Brittany.
The Gites are spotless and are fully equipped with everything you will ever need.
Lianne is an excellent cook and makes a great banana cake.

We have been to Brittany several times on holiday and stayed in several gite's, this year we had a two week break in lavender cottage and it is by far the nicest we have stayed in. the gite itself is very comfortable and spacious with everything you need for self catering and the grounds are well maintained and relaxing. The gite has a log burner which we enjoyed on the couple of days it rained. The snug and games room kept our children well entertained giving us good time to relax. Jon and lianne made us feel very at home and kept everywhere well maintained and clean and were on hand incase of any problems. It is situated a short drive from the pink granite coast giving access to wonderful beaches and we really enjoyed the night market in the local village. We enjoyed our holiday so much we've already booked up for next year!
