It makes an ideal base camp being close to the west coast for beaches and cliff top walking also close is Menz- Hom, a famous land mark with superb views of the peninsula. You can explore the Monts D'Arrée National Park and the Montagnes Noires - both delightful regions for walking, hiking or cylcling. Bikes Available

"Excellent location and very quiet"
The location was perfect and the house was quite charming and exactly what we needed for our family vacation. The caretakers were very nice and the neighbours extremely friendly. Stephen & Melanie were very helpful - setting everything up turned out to be easy, even from 4000 miles away!

"Friendly Village with plenty to do"
Four of us stayed two weeks in the comfortable cottage at
We found the villagers very friendly including the children
and the man with his dog. We are elderly so we left our buckets and
spades at home but we found it easy to park our car and watch the
various activities eg. Sand surfing and Fishermen at work.
We found reasonably priced restaurants and the big Le Clerc
supermarket at Chauteaulin a great asset.
There is plenty to do and see in the region, e.g beaches,street markets, little river ports, big rivers, bridges and museums.

"cottage = bliss"
2 best mates from school looking to relax and take in some new culture, enjoy some nice food and some quiet drinks.
The cottage was immaculate and had more than everything we needed for the week long stay. The beds were very comfy and there was ample storage.
We were there in April and the weather was very pleasant. We hired a car and bought a local map and visited the gorgeous nearby beaches.
The cottage caters easily for quite large families even those with young children. A fully equipped kitchen with a huge supermarket close by enabled us to cook some very nice meals ourselves.
A further alternative would be for a couple looking for a romantic getaway the huge log fire would really set the mood.
This I think would be the perfect opportunity to thank Stephen and Melanie and ill be in touch to make the necessary arrangements for next year very soon.

"Our stay in this lovely cottage was nothing short of fabulous!!!"
We would just like to leave a short note again regarding our stay in this lovely little cottage in May 2012! Myself and my fiance returned due to our very pleasant stay last year and we were not dissappointed this year either!! There have been many improvements locally with a new children's area including a 5 a side pitch, basketball area and park for the children and the new wine bar with its extremely hospitable landlord and patrons for the adults!! The local area to me is just getting better and better!! We would again like to express our gratitude to Stephen and Melanie for affording us another excellent stay in their cottage! We're really glad we found this place and we will definitely visit in 2013!!

"Best holiday ever!!!"
I thought i was taking a bit of a risk by driving down instead of flying (with 2 young children on tow) but worked out brilliantly. The drive turned out to be very enjoyable with the ferry crossing a pleasant change for a frequent flyer. Upon arrival to the cottage i was pleased to see that all the rooms were a good size and spotlessly clean. The cottage has everything you would expect and the bikes were really handy for exploring the place. The beach was great for the children and we all enjoyed getting the train from the local train station for days out to different nearby beautiful towns and citys. Ideal if you fancy a nice meal out or if you prefare a home cooked meal and a glass of wine in front of the log fire as we tended to do most nights. I couldnt recommend this cottage enough and could have easily stopped for another 2 weeks.

"A comfortable family cottage in a lovely village, close to beautiful sandy beaches"
We booked this cottage quite late through the Owner's Direct website. We liked the location and facilities. The owners were extremely helpful in assisting us with the booking and provided useful details on the area. The directions provided were good and even though we arrived very late on the first night due to the ferry times we had no problem accessing the cottage.
The cottage itself was clean and had all the facilities you would expect. The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of hot water available. The facilities provided for children were very good. We travelled with a 5 month old baby and a cot, baby bath, playmat and chair were all available. For older babies and children there was a highchair and stair gates as well as toys and DVDs provided. The only downside was the small outside area, but then by the end of the day we just wanted to collapse on the sofa.
The village itself was very friendly and a bakery very near to the cottage served delicious fresh croissants and baguettes. There is also a small shop selling essentials and a pharmacy nearby. Dineault is ideally situated for exploring Brittany and is within easy reach of Roscoff. There are lovely sandy beaches with shallow water ideal for young children nearby. Our favourites were Morgat, Telgruc and St Nic Pentrez. We also enjoyed days out in Quimper, Locronan, the Oceanopolis in Brest and Douarnenez. There are beautiful views from the nearby Menez Hom and Cap de Chevre, and the boat trip from Morgat to see the caves was very enjoyable.
