The Brittany region

Chateauneuf du Faou is only 8km away a beautiful Breton market town nestling in the Montagnes Noires. 18 bars, several good restaurants (recommend Le Relais de Cornouaille), regular Breton Festivals and a brilliant Jazz Festival on the banks of the beautiful River l'Aulne in August. The town is amazingly unspoiled and underplayed in all the guide books.

The town of Carhaix is only 7km away. In late July it hosts a famous 3 day rock festival (U2 ,Bruce Springsteen, Muse and the Killers have recently played there).

The medieval city of Quimper is a little over 20 minutes away with its spectacular cathedral, fascinating winding streets, half timbered buildings and chic shops, bars and restaurants. A little further inland lies the quaint lakeside town of Huelgoat with mystery walks into the forest with its enormous and fascinating boulders.

Chateaulin is the largest main town to the house approximately 15 minutes away by car, and has a very reliable train station which goes to other larger towns like Brest or Quimper.

Chateaulin is located on the banks of the river l'Aulne, it has plenty of shops, bars restaurants, banks and is renowned for its famous salmon run through the town with day permits readily available.

Fishing

Both course and sea fishing are extremely good here. Day (10€ approx) or week (30€ approx) tourist licenses can be obtained for your stay, A range of sea and river fishing activities for novices to experts are available.

Spezet

A small yet lively traditional french village 2km from the river l'Aulne The village offers all amenities.

For night life Spezet itself has a number of lively bars and restaurants catering for all tastes indeed the village boasts a Disco which is well frequented at the weekend.

The property is just 20 mins from the beautiful and rugged Crozon peninsula with its many beautiful unspoilt beaches.

It makes an ideal base camp being close to the west coast for beaches and cliff top walking You can explore the Monts D'Arrée National Park and the Montagnes Noires - both delightful regions for walking, hiking or cylcling. Often described as similar to Cornwall (though much less crowded), you may just fall in love with the rugged landscape and golden beaches of this wonderful and inspiring part of the world.

With such variety there really is something for everyone - whether you like to visit a chic resort like Benodet on the South Coast, or any of the hundreds of secluded beaches on the Corzon peninsula. Even in the height of summer you can often find yourselves alone on a beach here.

“Tranquility at its best”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2012

Wonderfully equipped to make any stay enjoyable, most relaxing surroundings inside and out. would strongly recommend this property to everyone.

“Made a great base !”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2012

A very nice, clean and quiet cottage....sorry, gite. The owners are great people too. We used Rob's place as a base for our day trips out to various parts of the region. It had everything we could ask for and things I didn't expect such as the X-box, and two bathrooms (no baths though) ...Brilliant ! On the negative side, and it would only be trivial whinging on my part, there was no firewood for the wood burner as we had to 'source' our own. (The owner's wood was locked away). It does get very chilly in the evening.

“Very peaceful, large relaxing garden and nice views”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2011

Stayed twice this year, Great location peaceful, scenic and ideally situated for exploring the surrounding towns and villages. The Gite is well presented, clean and equipped well with good quality furnishings. The large garden gets the sun all day and is ideal for relaxing and absorbing the country atmosphere
