Spacious, characterful and fully equipped - you will probably spend most of your time on the charming terrace (in the shade of the olive tree) or in or around the private pool.

This tastefully restored traditional family house will delight you. South facing with its sun-trap terrace and conservatory, you look out over unspoilt countryside. Spacious interior with all mod-cons plus antique furniture, granite fireplace, etc. private gateway, orchard, pond, but only minutes from your local village and a few minutes more to hypermarkets and the main east-west route giving easy access to beaches and the many famous sites of the pink granite coast and central Brittany.

Private swimming pool, heated with jacuzzi ideal for the children

A thoroughly warm and hospitable welcome from Patricia and Yvonne got our holiday off to a wonderful start. If anything the facilities surpassed our expectations, with a lovely, clean, tidy and well maintained property inside and out.
The house itself was beautifully appointed and made us feel immediately comfortable and relaxed.
The patio and pool area were especially appreciated by our daughters and the pictures don't convey the tranquil and beautifully landscaped area which is in deed a sun trap. Great for alfresco dining and relaxing and maybe a glass of wine or two!
Patricia and Yvon were available for very friendly advice and help but were totally unobtrusive, although you do need a basic understanding of conversational French.
Some great drives around the coastal areas, we particularly enjoyed Erquy and the Perros Guirrec area and found some great little restaurants with spectacular seafood.
The only slight downside is that the coast is 30 minutes away, not a problem if like us you like to explore the local area.
We would wholeheartedly recommend the property to anyone.
No English channels on the TV but we took lots of DVD's.

Mike, Suzanne, Georgia(15) and Lucy (13)

A magnificent holiday

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay and loved the combination of the quiet rural location and yet short distance to supermarkets and local shops.

With two young children the house - and swimming pool - were absolutely ideal. When the weather was not so good we were well located for exploring the countryside and in particular the spectacular Breton coast and seaside towns and villages.

We drove from Calais and it took around 5 hours.

The house manages to feel completely private although the owners live on site and are always available for help and advice when needed.

Thank you Patricia and Yvon for a really lovely holiday - we will return!

Pleasant, peaceful, pastoral

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this idyllic stone cottage, which oozes atmosphere without sacrificing comfort.

For our three children, the heated pool was the highlight of the holiday. For my wife and I, sipping kir bretons under the olive tree next to the lily pond proved an equally enjoyable way of passing the time. The kitchen was very well equipped and the tv offered more German channels than we receive at home! The winter garden with wickerwork recliners and the washing machine and tumble drier in the adjacent outhouse meant that even the less congenial aspects of Breton summer weather presented no real difficulties.

The cottage is situated far enough away from the motorway so that one cannot hear the traffic, but close enough to be convenient for embarking on a variety of day trips, for example to St. Malo and Dinan or even Mont-St.-Michel. Our girls attended a surf course in Perros- Guirec and the beaches at Trégastel and Sable d'or les Pins are within reasonable driving distance. The Île de Brehât, market day in Paimpol and the maize maze in St. Alban were other local attractions that went down well. Basic shopping can be done a few minutes away in the village of St. Agathon and the town of Guingamp offers a good selection of restaurants when one cannot summon up the energy to cook or barbecue.

The property was very well-maintained, and the garden, with its avenue of rhododendrons in the drive and lemon trees and palms in the courtyard, was particularly impressive. The landlord and his family were very helpful and friendly without being intrusive.

We can recommend this rental without qualification to anyone planning a relaxing break on the Côtes d'Armor or wishing to explore northern Brittany. It is eminently suitable for larger families or famliy groups with offspring in the five to fifteen age range.

We had a great holiday at Guingamp. My wife and our teenage family enjoyed quality time chilling by the pool, exploring the beautiful Brittany coast and historic towns.

The house was well appointed with all the facilities you would expect including a plasma television. The garden was well tended and great for barbeques. The pool was of a reasonable size and warm. The whole property was well looked after and the landlord was available for help and advice.

I would recommend your house to anyone wishing to spend a restful vacation in Northern France.
