The Brittany region

The Morbihan region of southern Brittany is a quiet fishing and farming region of France and 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.


The cottage is situated in the tiny hamlet of Kermorivin in the heart of Morbihan, 11 miles south of the historic market town of Pontivy in the outstandingly beautiful Blavet Valley... a great place to relax and unwind.The charming riverside village of St Nicholas des Eaux is just 3 miles away for restaurants, bars and creperie, walking and cycling along the towpath. The coast is a 40 minute drive. This part of Brittany caters for all tastes; a magnificent coastline; historical towns to visit; inland lakes and woodland to explore and a wide variety of activities for all ages .

You can be as relaxed and as energetic as you please.

"Perfect position for a restful holiday"

Four a Pain, we have to admit, was chosen at random on the internet. It was in an area we know well and we liked the look of the property. I should have bought a lottery ticket at the same time as we backed a winner.
This was our first taste of staying in a gite and it had everything we could have asked for. However, anyone with restricted mobility should take heed of the advice and it may well be advisable to clarify the situation.
The owners, Norma and Don, could not have been more welcoming and helpful and Norma's bilingual skills were invaluable in solving a problem we had with our hire car.
Being at the end of a rural cul de sac it really is in a quiet position, while at the same time being not too distant from urban facilities.
The nearby traffic free roads are perfect for an evening stroll.

"Unusual cottage in peaceful French hamlet"

The property is situated in a quiet hamlet but within easy reach (by car) of facilities such as supermarkets and major roads, should you wish to travel further afield. The area is also ideal for cycling, especially along the canal. The owners are very friendly and helpful and were able to suggest interesting things to do and see in the local area. The property itself is ideal for two people and is well-equipped. The bedroom on the mezzanine floor takes a bit of getting used to, as headroom is limited, but this novelty was all part of the fun of the holiday. The ladder used to reach the bedroom is quite steep and, for this reason, it is unsuitable for the elderly or very young children. We enjoyed some good weather during our stay and were therefore able to have meals outside in the private garden, with only birds, butterflies and lizards for company. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend it to others.

"Lovely Place"

Just back from a fortnight at "Four a Pain".
Really great holiday.
Lovely and quiet location but central for so many interesting places.
Cottage is very nice and in a very small hamlet of 5 or 6 houses.
You have to go a few miles to bars/shops/restaurants but thats can live the French village life...and relax.
Our weather was great.
The owners.Don and Norma are SO helpful and suggested many places and things to do eg local team...even hairdresser.
Pontivy is a great town.
For a couple who want to relax,I would definitely recommend this place.
