LE PETIT DIAMANT
About the home
The cottage is an ideal, peaceful getaway for a couple of people. There is a comfortable living/dining area with original beamed ceiling and large fireplace with wood burner. The small kitchen is off the lounge, as is the downstairs bathroom. The large settee converts into a double bed if required, therefore enabling 4 people to stay if needed.
You access the first floor via an original, steep wooden staircase – this leads into a small study/landing area where there is a single, fold up bed available if required. The stairs may not be suitable for anyone with a disability, or possibly small, young children.
The double bedroom is large, light, airy with exposed original beams overlooking the garden. It has an en-suite shower room.
The garden is to the front of the cottage and, with a small, low fence. There is a gravelled seating area with patio furniture and a BBQ – also two sun beds.
*Dogs are welcome – but please bear in mind the free range chickens and other local dogs.

The Brittany / Morbihan 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. The cottage has details of local amenities and resorts to help you plan your holiday.
The Pontivy / Nicolas Des Eaux area
Kermorheven is a typical Brittany rural hamlet consisting of approximately eleven stone cottages surrounded by countryside. There are free range chickens wandering the village and the cockerels will be evident!
There is woodland easily accessed from the cottage leading down to the beautiful river Blavet, with its tow paths, many locks and weirs. The picturesque village of St Nicolas des Eaux, with bars and restaurants is approximately three miles away.
The town of Baud is approximately 10 minutes away by car and the historic market town of Pontivy is approximately 20 minutes away by car, also the city of Vannes is about a 45 minute drive. The coast is a 40 minute drive.
