“A peaceful, beautiful and relaxing place to stay”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2014

Le Vieux Moulin is an incredibly tranquil house, set beside a stream in a peaceful valley where birds singing is about the loudest noise. There are good walks on the doorstep. The house itself is delightful; the garden is most attractive with the stream and remains of the original mill. It is well equipped, very comfortable with a really nice 'feel' to it. Although in a quiet location, reaching fascinating and attractive places such as Pontivy, Vannes or Josselin is easy. The lack of traffic on the roads was a revelation! My two year old son loved the place. The owner was easy to deal with, helpful and flexible. In short I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone looking for a peaceful yet not inaccessible holiday in a beautiful part of Brittany.

I am so glad you both had such a wonderful time at le Vieux Moulin. It never fails to give guests a peaceful, restful and really enjoyable holiday - and pleased to hear that you enjoyed exploring the beautiful countryside and fascinating old towns, as well as reached the coast too. We hope to see you and your friends again one day!

“An extremely lovely place!”
