Brittany is a region of outstanding historical and architectural heritage, a land steeped in the breton traditions which ensure its continued individuality and great popularity. The 'Morbihan' region has engaging scenery, charming villages, warm people, fine foods and good wine, a peaceful rural setting, relaxing outdoor pursuits and many beautiful beaches.

"Lovely, comfortable Cottage in an idyllic Location"

Stayed in May . We chose this Cottage for its idyllic location in a Village on the River Blavet. It proved a superb choice, and the Cottage was really lovely, excellent for us.It has been lovingly restored by the owners, with modern touches which only add to its charm,and is equipped with everything one could need. It exceeded expectations .It is in a very quiet spot and has a superb setting with great views over the Blavet. It is also within strolling distance of all the facilties in St Nicolas des Eaux.

St Nicolas Des Eaux is an excellent place to stay, very central for sightseeing.The Village itself is so picturesque, one can walk for miles alongside the river, on an excellent towpath, there is fishing, boat trips, a very nice Creperie as well as a couple of Hotels, and Bars, and a convenience store .

Venturing further afield, the coast is not far, well worth a visit is Carnac and also Vannes, the port at Auray,to mention a few. There are so many other places well worth a visit,the owners Ket and Odile, are very happy to help with suggestions, if you wish.

We enjoyed The Cottage, and the Area very much,ans are planning to return next year.
