Locunehen with own private heated pools
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 11
Welcome to the rural hamlet of Locunehen, where, set in an acre of beautiful landscaped gardens, you will find these two beautiful and immaculately kept granite gîtes (cottages) with individual heated pools for your exclusive use.
Just 1 km from the village of Quistinic, with its many amenties, the peace and tranquility of the Blavet Valley can be enjoyed, whilst still being within an easy drive of the wonderful large, sandy beaches, to be found in this part of southern Brittany.
Perfect also for exploring the historic towns and château of Josselin, Auray, Pontivy or Vannes, perhaps, to name but a few of the many architecturally rich towns and cities of the region.
The cottages are furnished and equipped to a very high standard with great attention given to detail to meet the exclusive requirements of individual guests. For those who need to "keep in touch" whilst away, we do of course provide unlimited free wi-fi access.

The Brittany region
This part of Brittany is lucky enough to have many wonderful sandy beaches and historic towns. Josselin, Auray, Pontivy or Vannes,to name but a few of the many architecturally rich towns of the region.
Beaches: Port Louis a favourite with locals with an ancient fort fronting the beach is also ideal for water-sports. See our own website for fuller details.
As well as enjoying the beach at Guidel Plage, which is to the west of Lorient, the Sunday market, often combined with traditional dancing in high season, (once the church service has finished) makes for a good family day out.
Carnac has 5 beaches stretching over 2 1/2 km with a coastal path following this line.
Further a field, the beach at Cote Sauvage, near the Quiberon provides a very sheltered beach, making it ideal for families.
Boat trips can also be taken to visit nearby island off the Gulf of Morbihan
The beautiful Blavet Valley and surrounding area offers plenty to do and see. With numerous historic towns, Châteaux, vast sandy beaches, water-sports, museums, churches and chapels, markets, and with an abundance of footpaths, including the many kilometres of towpath, the area provides something to do and see for everyone. See our own website for fuller details.
Quistinic is situated in southern Brittany between the historic towns of Pontivy and Carnac in the heavily-wooded valley of the river Blavet. Conveniently situated to enjoy both the beautiful countryside and beaches, 30 to 40 minutes away, or alternatively, the river beach at Minezan (a 5 min. drive away) is perfect for the days when you want to combine a walk or bike ride along the towpath alongside the river Blavet with a visit to the "beach" and a drink or ice-cream from the nearby rustic bar.
A comprehensive information folder with numerous other suggestions of places to visit will be found in your gite, but the following will give you a flavour of what the area has to offer: alternatively, more information can be found on our own website.
Within 5km of Quistinic the beautiful 15th, 16th and 17th century thatched medieval village and working farm of Poul Fetan can be found.
Walking and cycling
The Blavet Valley is a walkers paradise, with its many footpaths, rural roads and canal-tow paths. We have a selection of bicycles, together with a baby-seat and a 3 bicycle car rack, which guests are welcome to use.
The River Blavet, which is famous for its fishing, with over 28 fishing areas in the vicinity, provides the opportunity for catching salmon, trout, carp and many coarse-fish species.
A number of golf courses are within easy reach (one being only a 10 mins drive away), all set in beautiful natural surroundings.
Canoeing/Kayaking and Sand Karting
The River Blavet is ideal for canoeing and kayaking. At Lochrist, there is a canoe centre which has mini rapids and obstacle courses, great fun for all the family.
Art & Festivals
Many festivals are held across Brittany throughout the summer, where one can hear local Celtic music being played, watch traditional Breton dance and partake of local food and drink. The following are just a very small sample:
Lorient Inter-Celtic festival (August). This is largest traditional music festival in Brittany which is held each year, for 10 days in Lorient.
Quistinic - Pardon Des Chevaux. This takes place annually, in the heart of Quistinic, at the end of July. A festival dedicated to celebrating the life of the horse, where the horses are blessed at a church service, followed by an all day long celebration when locals get together in true Breton style to enjoy themselves with music and a glass or two of cider.

"The best holiday home we have ever stayed in"
We stayed at La Chouette at the end of September 2012 when the weather was quite chilly and wet but the house was so cosy and warm that the rain didn't spoil our stay. It was spotless and beautifully dressed for our arrival, comfy sofas, a wood burning stove and large TV, perfect for relaxation. Fully equipped with everything one could possibly want and the clean crisp white bedding and towels show how much the owners care about the comfort of their guests. The garden and outside spaces have been planted to provide privacy with several areas to just sit and read quietly. Although the pool was not used during our stay, in the warmer months it would be a really great facility. There was plenty of garden furniture and recliners. We didn't want to leave!
Yes, 2012 certainly was a year that will be remembered as being the wettest in living memory. However, it was good to know our guest enjoyed their stay and appreciated the efforts that we put into offering the facilities to ensure a good holiday, whatever the weather!
