Paul Kalli purchased this Cottage in 1989
Why Paul Kalli chose Lignol
Bot er Glazec was completely abandoned when we purchased the property in 1989. We fell in love with the whole area's outstanding beauty, taking us back to our childhoods - empty roads, beautiful beaches and very friendly, uncomplicated people. Our children holidayed here until they became now are returning with our young grandchildren.
What makes this Cottage unique
Brittany in general is a very pretty, unspoilt area of France. Bot er Glazec is situated in a particularly beautiful part of central Brittany. Stunning beaches are within 30 minutes drive and the surrounding countryside is picturesque and quiet. The unique benefit, we think, is the peace and quiet enabling cycling and walking for miles without hardly seeing any traffic. There are rivers, canals, forests, lakes and historic villages to explore within easy reach. If you want more cosmolitan pasttimes, you have Pontivy and Lorient for shopping, theatres, cinema and other activiites.

Ein schönes Cottage in der Bretagne
Wir verbrachten eine schöne Woche in der grünen Bretagne. Das Haus gefiel uns gut, die Einrichtung war angenehm und ansprechend. Der Eigentümer war sehr freundlich und entgegenkommend in allen Belangen unseres Aufenthaltes. Der hauseigene See ist sehr schön und auch zum Baden geeignet. Die Umgebung ist sehr still, lange Straßen zwischen Feldern und Wald laden zu Spaziergängen und zum Wandern ein. Irritiert hat uns leider, dass der der Preis in der Anzeige unter fewo-direkt.de zunächst in Euro (€) angezeigt wurde, die spätere Rechnungsstellung allerdings in britischen Pfund (£) erfolgte, was letztlich zu einer Verteuerung führte. Ansonsten waren wir mit dem Cottage in Bezug auf Lage und Ausstattung sehr zufrieden und können es weiterempfehlen.
Calme, tranquillité, bien situé, accueil chaleureux
Après 1 semaine fin Aout, nous recommandons ce cottage confortable, au calme, près des champs, très agréable pour visiter le Sud de la bretagne. Très bien situé pour l'accès a Lorient, Concarneau, Pontivy, Quimperlé ... et nombreuses ballades à vélo.
Merci à Paul et Helen pour leur accueil chaleureux, leurs oeufs de poules et tomates du potager.

Merci Thierry, pour votre merveilleuse revue, soulignant toutes les attractions et endroits merveilleux dans et autour du Morbihan.
Wir hatten wunderbare Tage in diesem kleinen und sehr stilvoll eingerichteten Haus!
Super séjour !
Le gîte était impeccable. Les propriétaires étaient adorables et aux petits soins.
Thank you so much for your kind review.

Appréciation générale de la location et des curiosités alentours
Petite maison au calme dans un bel environnement.
Manque tout de même de la vaisselle, une cocotte minute qui limiterait le temps de cuisson ( donc économie de gaz), un aspirateur et une télévision.
Beaucoup de visites à faire dans les alentours, région riche en monuments, chapelles et traditions ( festival inter celtique de Lorient et fest noz a volonté).
Rural Brittany offers rolling countryside, sometime wooded, sometimes open with an amazing network of deserted roads.
The area offers: tranquility, forests, canals, lakes and ancient towns set in the countryside or on the wonderful coast.
Memories will be of beautiful sunsets, interesting corners to explore and easy access to market towns, restaurants offering menus full of wonderful local produce and prices to match every pocket.
Shopping in local supermarkets (Guemene sur Scorff, Plouay - both within ten minute drive, or further afield cosmopolitan shopping in the boutiques of Lorient). Most days you can find a market in the towns (Hennebont, Lamor Plage, Guemene) selling local produce.
Pass the days walking or cycling on the deserted roads, visiting the superb beaches or just taking in the peace and quiet you won't find anywhere else.
Plouay hosts its own cycling championships at the end of August every year. All the top riders attend - one of the highlights of the cycling year and a must for any keen rider. There is also an all-comers event for both men and women - arrangements can be made for anyone wanting to enter this event.
Approximate non-stop, direct travel times by road from the ports are: Roscoff 2hrs; St Malo 2.5hrs; Caen 4hrs, Cherbourg 4.5hrs; Calais 7.00hrs If you are flying and then hiring a car Lorient is 45mins, Brest 2hrs and Dinard 2hrs. In all cases French Customs usually clear very quickly but in peak season the ferries can take an hour to unload. Quick turnarounds are the order of the day for budget airlines so luggage handlers may load the next flight before bringing arrival luggage to the carousel. (TopTip one person wait for baggage the other go through car hire processing.) Direct routes are given. There are short cuts, particularly from St Malo, Avranches & Dinard that the Michelin map and a good navigator and sometimes GPS will perceive. On a ring road the top name indicates the direction in which the next exit will take. The spacing of signs is less formal than in the UK but they usually “come up” more quickly. Signs are smaller, often unlit but on main beam dazzle. UK cards may not work at the péages so have change ready and, of course the window is always on the left. Speed camaras and speed checks are becoming much more frequent and fines, for auto camaras, are posted to your UK address. (New European agreement!) On the spot fines demand cash but you demand a receipt [facture]. Apart from the larger towns at busy times driving in Normandy and Brittany is very much more peaceful than in the UK. Stops on autoroutes are usually offered at ½ hr intervals. All have a picnic area and toilets. Other services, if present, are indicated on the pre-warning boards. July-August on peak days (weekends) hold-ups at péages and toll bridges can be considerable.
Brittany is the most western part of France and its most distinguishing feature is the rugged coastline; a necklace of charming coastal villages and fishing ports strung together by sandy beaches and bizarre pink granite rock formations which create a haven for wildlife and holidaymakers alike. Brittany sets itself apart from the rest of France – you’ll see a different way of life here; Brittany has its own customs, food and culture. Fortunately the language is the same as the rest of France now, so even with just a bit of French knowledge, you can make yourself understood.
