About Julie Honey
We have been living and working in France since we moved with our 2 children then aged 5 & 6 in May 2004
Julie Honey purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Julie Honey chose St-Gérand
After spending holidays with friends who live in Brittany we decided to buy a holiday home, after 2 years of looking we had nearly given up when we found our ideal property. After spending another 2 years coming over to the property for holidays and watching "No going Back" on TV we decided to take the plunge and moved here full time. The 3 bedroom gite (Granite) was our family home until 2013.
What makes this Cottage unique
Recently renovated cottage designed for families. The cottage is spacious and fully equipped to a high standard. Calavret is on the edge of Noyal-Pontivy so you get the peace and quiet of the rural French countryside but also the small village life only 3 kilometers away with Bars and Supermarket. There is also a Chalet that sleeps 2 adults on site which can lend itself to groups of friends who wish a property where they have their own space but at the same time are with friends. The area is beautiful with the rolling hills of Brittany and a very quiet pace of life. Being based in the center of Brittany means we are only and hour and half from the north, west and southern coasts and making it a great base to explore all of Brittany. Locally there is the Brest-Nantes Canal to explore and Lac Guerledan which has boat rides and man made beaches and much more.

Peace and quiet in the Brittany countryside
The gite was part of a small group of houses not far from Noyal-Pontivy. It had recently been converted and a nice touch was the photos on the wall of the conversion progress. It had been finished off to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean. Although small it was big enough for our needs and had absolutely everything we could need for our 10 night stay - from cleaning cloths to a washing machine. Julie and John were very welcoming and provided a welcome pack which included a nice bottle of wine. They were helpful in suggesting areas to visit as well as other useful local information. Highly recommended!
Thank you for your lovely review, it was a pleasure having you both. Good luck on your house hunting.
Beautifully presented property
We had a wonderful one week stay, a great gite with everything you could wish for and an ideal size for two, kitchen was fully equipped and essential supplies were catered for. Lovely grounds to enjoy and rolling countywide for miles, pool ideal for cooling off. The owners were very accommodating and friendly, they were there if you wanted a chat or you could have your privacy. Lots around the area to see and do so ideally based. Would certainly recommend staying here and would not hesitate coming back.
Thank you Diane & Lincoln for a lovely review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Noyal-Pontivy and ventured out to see this beautiful part of Brittany and all it has to offer. Hope to see you again some time.
Perfect Little Chalet
A very clean well presented little chalet perfect as a base for a holiday or just a quick visit Julie and John are very welcoming and a mine of information about the local area and infrastructure and more than willing to advise and help if required , a welcome bottle of wine waiting on your arrival, overall an excellent place to stay.
Great place to stay in Brittany
Fantastic accommodation and Julie and John couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. This was a wonderful location to Brittany with both the north and Atlantic coasts within the hour.
Intermarche in Noyal only 10 minutes away and open on Sunday.
Huge garden and good size pool, clean and well maintained.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or go back.
Excellent get away
Really lovely modern Chalet just outside of Neuvy-Pontivy. 10mins from the local Intermarche. Really quiet rural location but not too far out. Ideal for sightseeing the coast which is within an hour or I would recommend Lac Guerledan for a day which is not far and great if you have children as it has a fantastic shaded play area and good choices for restaurants.
The Chalet has a lovely modern kitchen with lots of cooking facilities, washing machine and Sky TV everything you need for a relaxing break. The pool is huge and there are swings and a trampoline. John and Julie where fantastic hosts and really warm and inviting, couldn't ask for anything more. Really great place to stay and check out the area. Ideal as a base as its so central to Brittany so each day you can go somewhere different. Hoping to return sometime in the future. Thank you John and Julie x
