we had a fabulous stay at the cottage photographs do not do it justice.
we very fortunate to have the property to our selves which allowed our dog to explore all round the gardens.
nothing was to much trouble to David who organised the vet and booked a local restaurant for us.
the cottage and pool area was spotless
I would recommend this property for anyone who requires a peacefully relaxing holiday is this area.
we would definitely return another year.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Lustruyen, despite some slightly unseasonal weather. The cottage has everything you need, and our kids loved the heated pool (as well as the English freeview channels!). The cottage is excellently located - we visited beaches on both the south and north coast. And the local Lac de Guerledan was fantastic for cycling, canoeing, kayaking, and walking - perfect for an activity-based holiday for families with young(ish) children.
With two young children, we were really pleased to see so much space, great facilities, and most importantly a fenced off pool (as neither can swim yet). The pool was clean and heated to a perfect temperature for a hot day seeing the local area. The choice of play equipment was perfect, including a large trampoline, which they loved.
The cottage was clean and had everything we needed, and the garden area to the rear of the cottage was spacious and well looked after.
Close to supermarkets, Rostrenen and the main routes to the other main towns, lakes and an hour from the beach.
We had a great stay, and would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for the same relaxing holdiay.
