AN UNFORGETTABLE RETREAT IN THE FAMOUS VILLAGE OF PONT-AVEN.

Pont-Aven Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 story house, 2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 4

Welcome to the well-renowned village Pont-Aven. This picturesque village is located on the west coast of France at the tip of the Aven River. This was once the home of watermill owners and shipping merchants. Today, the river offers shelter to oyster and mussel farms, which are a local delicacy. Drawn by Pont-Aven’s unmatched beauty and light, Paul Gauguin lived here to create much of his work. The artistic community and tradition remains strong. The village is home to the Pont-Aven School of Contemporary Art. The cottage was completely remodeled in the Brittany traditions in 2008. You will be staying in the center of the village. You can enjoy the local restaurants, cafes, bakery shops, markets, art galleries and the marina. Boat and canoe rentals are available seasonally at the port. All of this is within 50 to 300 yards from the house, where you can park your car and start enjoying life in Pont-Aven.

LA PETITE TOURTE, PONT-AVEN BRITTANY

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our week at La Petite Tourte in Pont-Aven. Although many of the galleries were closed or on very limited hours (after October 1st) Pont-Aven is a lovely town to visit at any time. The river, mills, flowers, marina and walkways all add up to an interesting and varied place to be. A good grocery store, patisserie, café and restaurants are all nearby to La Petite Tourte and parking is close enough not to be a problem. The accommodations are quite complete and comfortable. Our interests were directed more to Brittany than the town so we took day trips almost every day. Quimper, Carnac, Auray, Concarneau and Guilnevic were all interesting places to visit. La Petite Tourte would easily accommodate two couples or a family of four.

THE PERFECT VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in this charming village and found the house easily. The owners had been so helpful to us from first contacting them. The house is huge, beautifully decorated and clean, with a darling little courtyard with a gurgling brook running past. The large bedrooms have large windows that open to sweet smelling trees and the sound of the water running past. Very relaxing and pleasant! The town is adorable, with many wonderful things to see and places to eat, and many cookie stores! We kayaked down the river Aven to Port Manac'h and it was delightful. A beautiful marina, many art galleries, gorgeous weather, friendly shopkeepers. We can't wait to come back and stay here again, in this very special house. Thanks to Ronan and Heather for what they offer here!

FANTASTIC HOUSE IN A WONDERFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
La Petite Tourte provides very comfortable accommodation with everything you could possibly need and more! The location is ideal set in a small lane with no traffic yet on the doorstep of numerous restaurants, tabacs, bakers, and, of course art galleries and biscuit shops !
From first making enquiries Ronan and Heather could not have been more helpful and all dealings were carried out professionally and timeously. Everything in the property was as stated and was well maintained and clean
I would recommend a meal at Au Petit Bouchon which is just across the road and Le Graal is also very good. Good pizza at Les Moulin de Grand Poulguin.
We would certainly look to return in the near future.

PERFECT LOCATION FOR A BRITTANY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This rental is the perfect locaton to use as a base for your vacation. Our daughter attended art school in Pont Aven while in college. This beautiful home is as special as her memories of Pont Aven. From our first interaction with the owner everything was straightforward and professional. It was easy to check in and the Cafe folks were helpful and friendly. The first floor kitchen was well maintained and a perfect spot for our family breakfast. The clothes washer was a nice amenity. The living area was roomy and comfortable for us and our daughter and son-in-law. The bedrooms were private and very roomy, We managed fine with one bathroom upstairs. The "garden" bathroom was in a very secure back stone patio bordered by a pretty creek. You walk out the kitchen door onto the enclosed patio and there is a private, modern half bath which was very convenient and nice. We would highly recommend this property. We would love to stay here again. If you want a great bakery try the Boule Kersale, Cafe du Centre is a must for expresso, and we loved the mussels at Le Moulin Du Grand Poulguin. Vannes is a beautiful walled city- a perfect day trip from this property.

FANTASTIC STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a week in Pont Aven staying at La Petite Tourte, the cottage itself has a wonderful ambience, very well appointed with everything you need. Ronan & Heather have gone to a lot of trouble to make the cottage homely and inviting. The wood fire complimented the feel. The cottage is clean and spacious. The beds are very comfortable and the location is right in town. Only a five minute walk through the village and down to the boat moorings. Excellent resturants close by.
All in all an excellent place to stay and we would recommend it to anybody.

WORTH A STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
We throughly enjoyed our stay at La Petite Tourte. We have three small children all under the age of 5 and were nothing less than comfortable in this gorgeously decorated, very clean, cozy village house during our stay. Everyone slept very well so we were pleased to see that the comfortable beds lived up to the previous reviews. We also enjoyed the convenience of the lovely shops and restaurant on the doorstep. We will definitely come again!!!
