Description from owner

Welcome to the rural hamlet of Locunehen, where, set in an acre of beautiful secure landscaped gardens, you will find these two beautiful and immaculately kept gîtes (cottages) with individual heated pools for your exclusive use.

Just 1 km from the village of Quistinic, with its many amenities, the peace and tranquility of the Blavet Valley can be enjoyed, whilst still being within an easy drive of the wonderful large, sandy beaches, to be found in this part of southern Brittany.

Perfect also for exploring the historic towns and château of Josselin, Auray, Pontivy or Vannes, perhaps, to name but a few of the many architecturally rich towns and cities of the region.

The cottages are furnished and equipped to a very high standard with great attention given to detail to meet the exclusive requirements of individual guests. For those who need to "keep in touch" whilst away, we do of course provide unlimited free Wi-Fi access.

The Brittany region

This part of Brittany is lucky enough to have many wonderful sandy beaches and historic towns. Josselin, Auray, Pontivy or Vannes, to name but a few of the many architecturally rich towns of the region.

Beaches: Port Louis a favourite with locals with an ancient fort fronting the beach is ideal for water-sports. See our own website for fuller details.

As well as enjoying the beach at Guidel Plage, which is to the west of Lorient, the Sunday market, often combined with traditional dancing in high season, (once the church service has finished) makes for a good family day out.

Carnac has 5 beaches stretching over 2 1/2 km with a coastal path following this line.

Further afield, the beach at Cote Sauvage, near the Quiberon provides a very sheltered beach, making it ideal for families.

Boat trips can also be taken to visit nearby island off the Gulf of Morbihan

Quistinic

The beautiful Blavet Valley and surrounding area offer plenty to do and see. With numerous historic towns, Château, vast sandy beaches, water-sports, museums, churches and chapels, markets, and with an abundance of footpaths, including the many kilometers of towpath, the area provides something to do and see for everyone. See our own website for fuller details.

Quistinic is situated in southern Brittany between the historic towns of Pontivy and Carnac in the heavily-wooded valley of the river Blavet. Conveniently situated to enjoy both the beautiful countryside and beaches, 30 to 40 minutes away, and easily accessed from the motorway only 7 km away.

A comprehensive information folder with numerous other suggestions of places to visit will be found in your gite, but the following will give you a flavour of what the area has to offer: alternatively, more information can be found on our own website.

Poul-Fetan

Within 5km of Quistinic the beautiful 15th, 16th and 17th century thatched medieval village and working farm of Poul Fetan can be found.

Walking and cycling

The Blavet Valley is a walkers paradise, with its many footpaths, rural roads and canal-tow paths. We have a selection of bicycles, together with a baby-seat and a 3 bicycle car rack, which guests are welcome to use.

Fishing

The river Blavet, which is famous for its fishing, with over 28 fishing areas in the vicinity, provides the opportunity for catching salmon, trout, carp and many coarse-fish species.

Golf

A number of golf courses are within easy reach (one being only a 10 mins drive away), all set in beautiful natural surroundings.

Canoeing/Kayaking and Sand Karting

The River Blavet is ideal for canoeing and kayaking. At Lochrist, there is a canoe centre which has mini rapids and obstacle courses, great fun for all the family.

Art & Festivals

Many festivals are held across Brittany throughout the summer, where one can hear local Celtic music being played, watch traditional Breton dance and partake of local food and drink. The following are just a very small sample:

Lorient Inter-Celtic festival (August). This is largest traditional music festival in Brittany which is held each year, for 10 days in Lorient.

Quistinic - Pardon Des Chevaux. This takes place annually, in the heart of Quistinic, at the end of July. A festival dedicated to celebrating the life of the horse, where the horses are blessed at a church service, followed by an all day long celebration when locals get together in true Breton style to enjoy themselves with music and a glass or two of cider.

“Tranquility personified”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2013

Booked for two separate weeks blind, May and August, and so glad I had after our first visit in May. Communication excellent from Chris from initial booking to our departure. Chris accommodated our late arrival travelling from Calais, which is a trek, but very easy driving. This gite is picture post card perfect. To sleep 2 adults, 2 children, our kids 14! So a bit tight but we managed. It's compact, but honestly, has everything you could think of, a real home from home. Garden is huge, kids played badminton, pool is heated, no shortage of loungers and outside seating. Games room is fab, plenty for the kids to do should the weather be not so good, but equally as useful when it's too hot outside for them. The gite is a short walk from the village where a small shop sells most things including the obligatory fresh croissants. If you want noise and tourists ( even the cows don't moo! ) then here isn't for you, but if you're looking for relaxation, in beautiful surroundings, with the knowledge that your children are safe... what you waiting for, book now!
