The Brittany region

Le Cosquer is situated one mile outside of the village of St Connec, which comprises a church, Mairie and play area, found in all French villages and a bar. Just five miles away is Lake de Guerledan, with sandy beaches and safe bathing for those who do no want the hustle and bustle of sea beaches. Boat trips, water sports, fishing, cycling and walking are all available in this very beautiful area. If you have your own boat, bring it! There are no launch fees and launching is very easy.For all you mad keen fishermen and women out there you will be spoilt for choice in the area around your gite.

The Lac de Guerledan is teeming with different varieties of fish, whether you're out for Carp, roach, rudd, trout zander, perch or a 40lb pike !! One was caught last year weighing in at 17kg.If you prefer River fishing, the Blavet river and Nantes Brest Canal are only 5 minutes away also, where you can fish for the same variety. Fishing is a huge past time in France and you will see fishermen everywhere where there's water !! It's a great place to introduce kids to the sport as quite a few villages have their own private ponds stocked with trout, and they have picnic benches and wide banks and only charge around 5 euros for a days fishing !


The area surrounding St Connec has many pretty villages with superb restaurants and churches, and along with the Napoleonic Castle at Pontivy, Bon Repos Abbey, La Forge des Salles, all go towards making this a great area of architectural study.

For those who prefer the sea, Carnac, with its long, sandy beaches, the megaliths and the oyster beds, is an easy hour's drive away. The beaches in the North, which don't get so busy, and as the coast is more rocky there are little pools to play in and many shells to be found.

There is a choice of all sizes of shops, from hypermarkets in Londeac and Pontivy, to the shop on site for basics.

Eating out is a pleasure,at the Lake, and in Pontivy and Londeac. All are very reasonable and very good. There's plenty to do, from sightseeing the lovely chateaux, visiting the coast or go-carting. We'll be there to tell you all about it.

"A charming Gitte in beautiful Brittany"

A wonderfully pretty Gitte set in amongst beautiful countryside, very tranquil and perfect for a relaxing getaway. Ideally located for both northern and southern beaches; only about an hour from eithe… More

Very clean and well presented. The Gites were furnished to a high standard and were an ideal base to explore the surrounding area. The facilities included use of laundry facilities and a great big chill out barn where the kids and adults could meet/play or just chill. Monday nights are not to be missed with Andy cooking crepes of your choice. Our hosts were friendly and obliging and full of useful information on where to go and what to see.The kids could play safely in beautiful surroundings. The big bonus is a swimming pool which was most welcome during the hot afternoons

"All family members enjoyed our stay at Le Cosquer"

We have just come back from a weeks holiday in France staying at Le Cosquer, Andy and Jo are extremely nice and very helpful. We stayed in the Primrose Gite which seemed a bit small when we first arrived but it was totally adequate for me my husband, two teenage girls and my 6 year old son. It is clean and tidy and well maintained. It is in a very quiet area of France so a car is essential as you need to travel to shops, restaurants and beaches. The highlight of the kids holiday was the pool which is big enough for all staying and my kids where in it as much as they could which is open 10am to 7pm on a daily basis. There is not alot to do in the evenings, apart from Crepe night which we enjoyed. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Le Cosquer

"Fantastic "gite", location, holiday & hosts, can't wait to return"

We have just returned from our first trip to France with the kids, we had a fab time and was largely due to the holiday accomodation, hosts and facilities.
We stayed in Primrose Gite with my wife and two children aged 10 and 8. Having 3 bedrooms was a bonus and the open plan living space, although fairly small was big enough and complemented by the large barn with tables, chairs, table tennis and other games. Also your own patio table and chairs right outside your property where we ate every meal.
Highlight for our kids has to be the barn and swimming pool. The pool was open from 10-7 every day, and was plenty big enough.
The Gite is in the middle of the countryside and everywhere is a car or bike journey, but that said, all you needed was within 5-10minutes drive.
The nearby lake (approx 15minutes drive) was great, really safe and plenty to do. The local town and markets were good and everyone welcomed you.
Overall an excellent holiday and we'll be back again to explore the area some more.
