Pam Jones purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Pam Jones chose Pontivy area

We bought this property originally as a holiday home because of the scenery, the silence and the proximity of the canal, but we loved it so much we all moved out here permanently in 2006 and still love the area just as much.

We love the walks along the canal and in the woods as each day seems to be different, and so much bird life, as well as red squirrels, deer and wild boar!

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage whilst attached to the rest of the property with a barn in between is completely self contained with a private west facing fenced garden.

Guestbook comments from the owner

we had a fabulous two weeks, we were made to feel part of the extended family and given as much help as we could ever have asked for. Pete even removed a tic that our dog had managed to pick up. sorry for winning at the skittle game you let us join in. The gite is extremely well equipped, there was nothing we wanted that wasn't there. The pool is nice an warm, and much bigger than it looks in the photograph. Our dog loved walking along the canal, which was two minutes from the door. Loads to do in the area, and easily reachable from several ferry ports. Highly recommended.

We have had the nicest, relaxing holiday for a long time! The 4 of us (my fiancé, I and our 2 girls, 4 yrs and 8 weeks old) stayed for 2 weeks at this beautiful, full of character cottage just last ppmonth. Gorgeous location, beautiful little towns to visit around, great super market not too far with beautiful, fresh local produce. Gite itself very clean and well equipped, big garden, just perfect for kids to run around. Lovely and very helpful owners, who made us very welcome! Thank you for letting us stay at your charming place - we will be coming back! Just like lthe last review.. Will not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

Thank you for the loan of the bikes, so beautiful cycling along the cannel next to your property. Taffy the dog is so friendly too. Will not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

Stayed here for a week in the summer and couldn't have had a better week (in fact we wish we'd stayed for a second week).

The owners were fantastically friendly and welcoming, the gite extremely well equipped, meticulously clean and very well located for touring the sights.

I've stayed in a number of gite across France and can genuinely say that this is my favourite. So good in fact that my wife and I are looking to book for a return visit (for two weeks).

Excellent Gite

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful gite in a perfect tranquil location. The gite is extremely well equipped, spacious, well maintained and extremely comfortable. It felt like home from home. Made to feel very welcome by the owners Pam, Derek, Sharon and Peter and the warm welcome started with lovely bottle of red which hit just the right note after a long journey (Thank you)! We would not hesitate to recommend your gite, it?s just perfect if you want to just chill out and have a taste of the real France.

We had such a wonderful relaxing week at this exceptionally well equipped and superbly located gite. The gite is within 100M of the Nantes-Brest Canal and there are wonderful walks to be had along the tow path in either direction. One can cycle as well as there's a choice of 10 bikes to choose from. There are numerous facilities and attractions within a short drive. The British Owners live on site and are most welcoming and informative without being intrusive. This is such a wonderful place we have already booked for next year! Well worth a visit.
