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!

We had a fantastic 2 week break in Lavender cottage - which is a very comfortable gite that has everything you need - it's been beautifully renovated and makes for a comfortable stay, plus my kids loved having the games room and 'snug'! The setting is equally lovely, tucked away down a quiet country lane, incredibly peaceful and relaxing yet only 5 mins from a stunning beach and 10 mins from a bustling french town and supermarket.

The owners were very welcoming, with helpful tips about the surrounding area, where to eat, which beaches to visit etc. I would recommend it without hesitation for people wanting to explore this picturesque region of Brittany, whilst having a tranquil place to come home to at the end of the day.

Lavender cottage was really lovely and in a great location. We had a very warm welcome from Lianne and John. It was a great space with toys and a garden for young children (ours enjoyed the playhouse and games room - and the bats!). Perfect for exploring beaches, castles, woodland and other attractions.
