About Mrs Mitzi Griffith

We live just outside Cambridge. We grew up in St Albans, but, when we married we could not afford a house so drove up the A1 until we could and ended up in Eaton Socon, we have stayed in the area ever since. We have 2 daughters and 5 grand children all boys and all amazing. We have a peace of land on which we keep goats, sheep and chickens when Mr Fox allows.

Mrs Mitzi Griffith purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Mrs Mitzi Griffith chose Noyal-Pontivy

We wanted a holiday home in France had friends in the area who said they would look after a house if we found one. We found the fallen down remains of Ty Griffet, I could see the potential as soon as I saw the ruin, but the rest of the family were very dubious. Now we all love the house and spend as much time here are we can. The house is everything I wanted and more. We love the area, because it is easy to get, to with the dogs, the lack of traffic, the friendly people, what more can I say, perhaps I should mention the bread, wine, cakes, restuarants, quiet,

What makes this cottage unique

The unique benefits of the house are the peace and quiet in the large garden outside. Inside it's the open architecture of the house with its high ceiling and open plan living area makes it an easy place to relax in.

Ty Griffett is our own beautiful private holiday home and because of this the decoration furnishings and equipment are to a very high standard not the usual rental gite standard . ALL the facilities are for PRIVATE use and are NOT shared with any other properties or people. The house is set in a small village (5 houses actually) in a very quiet rural setting of rolling hills and fields full of peas, beans, potatoes, ideal for gleaning once they have harvested the main crop. The neighbours are very friendly and you might be given home grown lettuce or beetroot by Renne the closest neighbour. The house is set in an acre of garden so plenty or room to stretch your legs. Seats scattered around the garden to sit and relax. The 2 dining tables give you a choice of where to eat. Recliners and seats on the decking around the pool allow you to relax and read a book or drink wine after a dip in the heated pool.

A very relaxing stay in a charming, lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this charming cottage. Lovingly renovated and well-equipped, it did everything it said on the tin.

It was also very easy to find, despite being buried deep in the Brittany countryside - we just put Ty Griffet into google maps and it took us straight there.  And when we arrived there was a welcome pack of essential goodies waiting for us. 

The house is well fitted out: The beds are very comfy, the internet is good, the pool temperature was spot-on and there was even a good selection of DVDs. There was no shortage of anything in the cupboards, although we didn't do any cooking. Except, of course, for crisping-up the french-bread to go with fresh prawns in their shells... my all-time favourite snack!

We loved the garden too: spacious, quiet and private - as did Ellie, our spaniel, who thought she owned the place. 

The nearest town is Pontivy, which  has many beautiful old buildings and is only 10 minutes away by car. And even if the French shops do seem to close at all hours of the day, the Inter-Marche supermarket has a great selection of fresh fish, wine and local cheeses. Even better, and much to our surprise and delight, they also stock a particularly nice local wheat beer (Britt Blanche)

To top it all, we had great weather too - over 30 degrees on several days. 

All in all, a very relaxing stay in a charming, lovely cottage .

Very comfortable and quiet house

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for somewhere to unwind away from it all then this is the place - very comfortable house in a private and quiet location.

We stayed with our two boys aged 11 and 12 and they enjoyed the pool.

Very central in Brittany so an ideal place if you want to explore the region.

This is one of the cleanest, best equipped holiday homes that we have stayed in.

A fantastic house for a family. There's provision for all of the children from a 5 yr old to a 15 yr old with plenty of room for playing football or splashing in the pool. The tables outside are in the perfect position for a bit of late sun. Inside the house is beautifully decorated and spacious with everything you would want or need and Pontivy is well located for a trip to the beach, the lake or the fun parks. We had a brilliant holiday.

Perfect hideaway

  • 5 of 5

If you want to escape the rush of daily life, this is the perfect spot. Very quit, but with all the comforts you want on your holiday. It's located very centrally in Brittany, so also an ideal location to explore this beautiful part of France. This was our 4th time we went to Ty Griffit, and most likely not our last time.

Comfortable, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a family holiday, 6 of us including our 6 month old grandson at the beginning of September 2015. Really lovely, well equipped, comfortable accommodation. Everything in the house was really well thought out and lots of crockery, cutlery, pots and pans etc. so made full use of the dishwasher! The welcome pack was really appreciated. Garden lovely and the pool was heated, even a BBQ. Absolutely no hesitation in staying there again and would strongly recommend it to our friends.

The longuere is close to the old town of Pontivy with cobbled streets wooden houses, an amazing range of shops, bars and restaurants. There are wonderful walks in the area, along the canal, by the river, in the woods or just in the countyside. Bicycles, canoes, boats, can be hired locally, and horse riding is available. Good restaurants, bars within a short drive. The people are very friendly.

Vannes is a beautiful old port and is the closest coast 30/40 minutes drive. With restaurants and bars overlooking the port and lovely market on Saturdays. Fantastic shopping. A lavoir (where the women did their washing) wonderful architecture.

Shopping to die for, clothes, food, presents, furniture.

There is so much history in the area you are spoilt for choice, Old towns, museums, churches, standing stones.

There is a market in one or other of the local towns nearly every day of the week so you can purchases all the wines, cheeses, meats, bread you can ever want.
