Very well equipped house in a beautiful part of the country.

It is so peaceful yet only few miles from supermarkets.

You could happily stay all week by the pool weather permitting.

Rick and Karen are on hand to help with any problems and are so helpful. The welcome pack is very welcome.

Thank you Kathy and Ewan we had another wonderful stay, you have a marvellous gem here.

Beautiful property and great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was just lovely and very well equipped. Good size heated pool with plenty of loungers, chairs etc. Very quiet property and rural. Very close to all amenities with some lovely towns close by. Owners are extremely helpful and Karen and Nick who look after the property are just a few minutes away so any problems and they will come round. While you can get Internet, you are unlikely to get a phone signal unless you go to higher ground. We drove to the village if we needed to use the phone. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Beautiful property, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.......

  • 5 of 5

Property was fantastic, quite location and the children in particular loved the pool.

There is everything you need in the property. Close to Josselin where you can hire canoes and enjoy a beautiful spot on the river. There is also a good choice of restaurants. The coast is also an easy drive, just c 40mins away. The owners have thought of everything.....

games for the kids, UK television etc etc. Highly recommended, we'll be visiting again.

Beautiful and well laid out.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Ville Papillon we spent all of our time in the pool and evenings sat in the garden. The walks in the area were spectacular and enjoyed them every night. Josselin is a beautiful historic town and the castle is well worth a visit. This is everything you want for a relaxing holiday and thank you to all involved making that happen. Jon, Kerrie and Kane

An excellent cottage, well maintained and in a lovely peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cottage. The living areas are spacious, the kitchen is well equipped, the swimming pool is excellent, the main (en-suite) bedroom is positively palatial and the other bedrooms, while on the small side, are comfortable. The pretty town of Josselin is a short distance away in the car and has a number of interesting activities and sights, and there are a large number of other places to visit in this rural area. Even in August, this was a peaceful stay in a relatively quiet area which we really enjoyed.

Very clean and perfectly equipped. Quiet rural location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect holiday. Our children loved the house and pool and we liked the location. Rural yet within easy reach of lots of great days out if required. The house didn't lack for anything and was a excellent standard throughout. Would recommend without hesitation.
