Very peaceful and tranquil place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week-long stay at the cottage. We found it very clean and well maintained with everything for our stay. We were greeted by the owner who showed us around and also left us a welcoming bottle of wine and some pastries. The owners were very pleasant and helpful.

The cottage has a safe, private garden at the back which unfortunately we couldn't take advantage of as we were out most days. The surrounding area was very quiet and we had some nice walks. It is next to a road but we had no problems as there was very little traffic.

A car is essential to get out and about the surrounding area. We visited several places, amongst them the Tropical Parc at St Jacut Les Pin (small, family-run animal park with great bird show); Branfere Animal Park (large animal park which has a fantastic bird show - thoroughly recommended). We also visited the small town of La Gacilly which currently has a Photo Festival all through the town. The town of La Roche-Bernard is well worth a visit as is Rochefort-en-Terre.

Vacances au pays de l'OUST

  • 5 of 5

Vacances très agréables au pays de l'Oust, véritable découverte de ce coin de Bretagne avec la visite de La Gacilly, Rochefort en terre, Redon ainsi que des balades au bord du canal (dommage il nous manquait des vélos). L'accueil est très chaleureux, les hôtes sont charmants. La maison est très accueillante, pleine de petites attentions, les deux jardins très fleuris ou se sont beaucoup plus nos deux quatre pattes. il y a absolument tout ce qu'il faut pour passer un très agréable séjour.
