About the property

Le Petit Poubreu

Two cottages, one sleeping 2 and the other sleeping 4, are adjacent to the owners property in the tiny hamlet of Petit Poubreu. With large communal gardens the cottages are tastefully decorated to combine modern convenience with the traditional features of a Breton 'longere'. The picturesque village of St Laurent sur Oust is only five minutes walk away from the property. Here you will find tennis courts, a children’s play area and a local bar serving bread and groceries. Close by, the Nantes-Brest canal is ideal for walking, cycling or fishing. Just a short drive will take you to the Medieval market town of Malestroit where there are a selection of restaurants, bars, shops, banks and other facilities. There is a local market on Thursday mornings and live music on Friday evenings throughout the summer.

A Most Enjoyable Holiday Base

  • 5 of 5

The cottage really worked well for us as a base for seeing so many local sights. It was clean and comfortable, the layout was ideal. The setting in the countryside was beautiful and quiet. Don was a good host which always helps you relax and enjoy the holiday. We would go again for there are more things for us yet to see.

The port side city of Vannes is just 30 minutes drive away and the Breton capital, Rennes at just 45 minutes on the N166. You can reach the nearest beach in 30 minutes but there are many others a little further away around the Gulf of Morbihan. You may prefer a stroll around the cobbled streets of Rochfort en Terre or a visit to La Gacilly, the home of perfumier Yves Rocher. The chateau at Josslin, the megalithic stones at Carnac and many other well preserved and interesting inland and coastal villages are all accessible for a day trip. At the Museum of the Resistance at St Marcel, just outside Malestroit, you will discover the history of the ‘maquis’ and the memorable battle that took place there during the second world war.
