Haven of peace
Ty Robert is a charming cottage in a lovely part of Brittany. The owners kindly allowed us the use of both the cottage's garden and that of the rather larger adjacent cottage, Restervez (since the latter was unoccupied); most days we sat out, and we usually ate al fresco - the definition of a French holiday. Strongly recommended for its serenity and historic interest is the nearby Abbaye de Langonnet; also Langonnet itself, and le Faouet (for some excellent creperies). Much recommended!
Genuinely French accommodation.
A comfortable cottage, traditional, in a quiet situation.
Wonderful , private garden which we enjoyed so in the heat of this summer spending most of our time outside. Beautiful linen provided.
The Owners gave really clear directions to the cottage and detailed information regarding the local area and venues further away. We appreciated their knowledge and their enthusiasm for sharing.
We had already spent a few weeks in France on arrival so did not travel too far afield on this occasion but felt totally at home in an authentic Breton dwelling. Internet, in you really need it!! at lovely local Tourist Office in le Fouet.
Peaceful and beautiful stone cottage
We had a lovely peaceful stay in this cosy stone cottage in a very quiet country setting. Arriving to the sight of a lit wood burning stove was brilliant. The birdsong was fantastic and the lovely garden was secluded and full of beautiful trees. The cottage was very clean and had all we needed and the hosts were very friendly, kind and helpful. The cottage was excellent value for money. We had a wonderful holiday, only wish we could have stayed longer.
Nous ne pouvons pas dire que le logement était très propre . Nous avons aussi eu du mal à le trouver (le numéro de téléphone indiqué pour joindre le correspondant local n'était pas attribué) mais ces petits inconvénients ont été vite oubliés. Le jardin est un petit paradis, bien entretenu, la maison bien équipée. Nous avons eu la chance d'avoir un très beau temps. En bref , c'est un bon séjour que nous avons effectué . Nous avons apprécié le calme et le chant des oiseaux omniprésents . A noter pour les futurs locataires que les communications téléphoniques avec smartphone passent très mal dans ce coin de Bretagne et la maison ne dispose pas de WI-FI. Je pense qu'on peut passer des vacances fort sympathiques dans cette petite maison typiquement bretonne.
Séjour très agréable et très au calme ?
Tout était parfait pour le calme et la tranquillité . Si nous voulons apporter une amélioration c'est qu'il serait bien d'avoir les documentations techniques en français surtout en ce qui concerne la télévision qu'on n'a pas su faire fonctionner sauf pour les DVD . Pourtant il y a une parabole donc nous devrions avoir les chaines françaises .. il faut savoir aussi que l'on ne reçoit pas internet , pas de 4G. Mais pour les gens qui veulent se déconnecter de tout, c'est le lieu parfait !

Huelgoat (The name means Highwood); stands by the shores of a large lake, which together with its neighbouring hilly woodland makes it a popular excursion centre for activity.

The Tourist office in the village can provide detailed maps of all the nearby paths, The Moulin Du Chaos houses a small exhibition of local life and history.
Pontivy is by the river and has quaint half-timbered buildings in the streets near Notre Dame De La Joie. It also has a fortress with pepper pot turrets and has a deep dry moat, the fortress is used for temporary exhibitions and the tourist office is just outside. The west side of the town was built by Napoleon and has its own equally interesting buildings.
Vannes; part walled old town, the old wash houses (Lavoirs) are by the ramparts. immaculate gardens beneath the walls, take your breath away. At the port trips around the Golfe Du Morbihan can be booked.
Poul Fetan: a victim of the rural decline has been turned into an ecomusee of traditional thatched cottages furnished in period style, with complexes of craft shops and cider presses. The locals dress in period costumes.
