The Brittany region

Engaging scenery, charming villages, warm people…

Fine foods and good wine, a peaceful rural setting, relaxing outdoor pursuits and many beautiful beaches.

The Morbihan region of southern Brittany can supply all of this... and more.

This quiet fishing and farming region of France is blessed with a beautiful and varied coastline and an interior of lush farmland, woods and moors to delight the country lovers.

The native Breton people, of Celtic descent appreciate their visitors and provide a warm welcome. Their local 'Pardons' and 'Fetes', regional costumes, music, dances, legends and language maintained by the Bretons are a large part of the area's unique charm.

Brittany 's restaurants and bistros supply some of the best of French provincial cooking, very reasonably priced and in generous proportions.

You can't leave without sampling its 'fruits de mer', crepes and cider.

Brittany 's rolling hills, dense forests and lazy rivers, offer a variety of activities; from walking, riding and cycling to fishing and canoeing.

The rich architectural and archaeological heritage provide for excellent one-day tours; the fascinating towns of Pontivy, Josselin, Dinan and Vannes are full of historical interest. Then, of course, there are the megaliths, churches and for the stout-hearted there's the 'quest for the Holy Grail' and the Arthurian legend.

To the south, a short traffic-free drive away, is the beautiful Golfe du Morbihan, a yachtsman's paradise, with all manner of water-sports and numerous little islands to visit on the regular ferries.

Or just relax in the sunshine on an endless choice of beautiful beaches. Additionally the large lakes at Guerledan and Priziac offer excellent facilities for swimming, boating and sunbathing.

Each cottage has details of local amenities and resorts to help you plan your holiday.

Morbihan offers a wealth of activities all within 45 minutes of the cottages.


Pontivy was chosen by Napoleon as a garrison town and renamed Napoleonville for a while. It is a charming country town on the River Blavet with many beautiful half-timbered, corbelled and turreted houses, cobbled streets and attractive shops in the old quarter around the 16th century church of Notre Dame de la Joie.

The 15th century Castle of the Dukes of Rohan with its two remaining towers is well-worth a visit. There is a good variety of restaurants, cafes, interesting shops and good supermarkets. Pontivy has an open-air swimming pool. Market day is Monday.

Cycling for all stages from the gentle towpaths beside the Blavet river, through quiet country lanes and villages to the more exacting marked trails. Bicycles are available to hire locally.

Horse riding stables can be found near Bieuzy les Eaux, Camors, Pontivy

Tree climbing in the adventure forest at Camors is a lot of fun for the fit and energetic.

Watersports include canoeing on rivers, water skiing on inland lakes at Guerledan and Ploermel and sailing, surfing and windsurfing on the coast.

Historic towns such as Pontivy, Auray Vannes Josselin and Quimper have retained much of their medieval character and are well worth a visit.

"Incredible grounds, really spacious gite"

What a fabulous place. We travelled as a group of 2 couples plus 3 toddlers under the age of 2. It was perfect, the grounds are beautiful, huge and so well kept. The pool is a really decent size, nice for adults to knock out a few lengths and also great for children to paddle and sit around at the top end. There is a small area of swings and slides for little ones and also a field of sheep across the road which went down a storm for a daily visit to see them. We also loved the fact there are sun loungers dotted around everywhere so you can really chill out in the peaceful surroundings away from everyone. There were areas in the ground we didn't even make it too, the place is that big. Marion and Al are perfect hosts, not intrusive at all yet went out of their way to help us with our odd requests. Even the 3 cot beds we requested were luxurious. Wooden and big, not the usual plastic ones you usually get on holiday. Also loved the fact Marion cooked a fab meal for our arrival and had done some basic shopping so we had peace of mind that we could relax right from the off. It's a very easy drive into Plumieau for shopping, 5 min drive straight down the road for a lovely bakery, 2 big supermarkets and a fab pizza take out place. So sad to leave, an amazing break, we hope to be back again.
