La Ville au Tady is a detached cottage in over 1 acre of land. It is a traditional Breton long-house, or longère, that has been fully renovated while retaining its charm and character. Located in a small hamlet in Southern Brittany, the local village of Guegon is just a few minutes drive through quiet country lanes. Within the village you will find several bars, a general store, restaurant and the essential boulangerie-patisserie for your fresh baked baguette and croissants. The area is perfect for exploring on foot or cycle, with a designated cycle route passing through the hamlet. The medieval town of Josselin with its famous château, 17th Century half-timbered buildings, bars and restaurants is a scenic four mile drive. Brittany's largest inland lake is located nearby, with swimming, golf and water sport facilities. Superb beaches are to be found all along the nearby Morbihan coast which is said to have 365 small Islands, one to explore for each day of the year.

The cottage is a equally well suited to active families, those wishing to explore the historic towns of Brittany, or couples requiring a comfortable cottage and garden in which to relax.

The Brittany region

There are many interesting small villages and larger towns in the region, and certainly more than you could explore in a two week holiday.

Auray is a lovely old town with lots of shops and restaurants, an old port and an excellent Sunday market.

Vannes is a large town on the edge of the Gulf of Morbihan with an old quarter bustling with good restaurants and small shops. Excellent markets are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays and a famous jazz festival in July.

Carnac has excellent beaches but is also world famous for being an ancient and historic place with over 3,000 prehistoric megalithic stones.

We provide a great selection of maps and guides at our cottage to ensure you get the most out of your holiday. There is comprehensive information on places to visit and suggestions for activities on our personal web site, email us for further details.

Josselin

Our local village, Guegon, is just a 5 minute drive and contains a variety of local shops & facilities including bars, general store, excellent boulangerie-patisserie, restaurant, boules court, tennis courts.

Our local town, Josselin, (10 mins) is a medieval town of character designated a 'Petite Cité de Caractère' and Floral Town. It boasts a famous riverside Château, 11th century Church and 17th century housing. There is a fine selection of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops, and a bustling Saturday market. We think it is one of the best small towns in Brittany.

A 20min. drive away is Dukes Lake, at over 600 acres one of the largest in Brittany, with a man made beach, lake swimming, sailing, kayaking, water-skiing, and pedalos. There is also a cafe, an excellent golf course, and a lakeside trail planted with 5,000 hydrangeas of 220 different species.
