Lustruyen farmhouse is a substantial stone building which has been converted into good quality modern accommodation. Comfortably furnished and equipped, it had plenty of space for our party of 6 adults and 4 children. The outside facilities, and especially the large heated swimming pool in the grounds, were perfect for family relaxation in a private rural setting, and safe enough to allow even the toddlers to play with minimal supervision.
Owners David and Carolyn maintain the property to a high standard, and are always available in the event of any problems.
Although in a completely rural setting, Lustruyen is only a short drive from the substantial town of Rostrenen, and several supermarkets.
This was our second stay at Lustruyen, and it more than lived up to our memories of the previous year.
For anyone looking for a relaxing do-nothing break, or as a base for exploring the many delights of central Brittany, Lustruyen fits the bill perfectly.
Lustruyen Farmhouse and its grounds provided the ideal environment for our 3-generation family holiday. The accommodation was delightful, clean and comfortable, very adequately equipped, and the peaceful environment was broken only by the lowing of the cattle next door, and even that paled into insignificance against the sounds of 4 grand-children enjoying themselves.
The heated pool was an absolute winner, and the other equipment, all of which was in excellent condition, meant there was little time for boredom to set in.
Our own needs for a tranquil (as tranquil as 4 children will allow!) restful break were more than well met by the property. We were not looking for much by way of off-site excursions, but there appears to be plenty in the area for those prepared to seek it out.
We will definitely be back.

Had a brilliant stay here at the start of the summer holidays. Kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool and play area. Baby was containable. Property suited our needs - equipped with microwave and washing machine - essential for use with baby and children. Away from main roads so children could enjoy facilities. Close enough to cycle to town.
A great family friendly cottage in a lovely quiet rural location in the middle of farming country. The location is good, being only a 10 minute drive from a town with supermarkets and shops and to a main road. The property was clean and had good basic equipment, including a TV with a good selection of English channels and a DVD player. But the real attraction is the beautiful garden and swimming pool, perfect for children, with a nice selection of garden toys and facilities such as swings and trampoline. A lovely apple orchard too!
We'd certainly recommend this for families with pre-teen children who are looking for something peaceful yet full of fun.
