Why Sue Gilbert chose Huelgoat

Holidayed in the area for many years and found this property to be perfect for us being close to all amenities and the beautiful town of Huelgoat with so much to do yet set in the peaceful and beautiful countryside.

What makes this apartment unique

Our Gite is entirely on level ground with parking outside the door in our private courtyard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This beautifully appointed and centrally located Gite is ideal for visiting Brittany's delights. The idyllic surroundings and the warmth of Sue and Judith's welcome made this a holiday to remember. Mr & Mrs N. County Antrim. June 2008

A wonderful, wonderful stay, restful and beautiful. A lovely Gite and nice walk into town. I loved it all! Jerry J. Pittsboro, Nth. Carolina. April 2009

A spacious comfortable gite run by two lovely people. We had no idea Brittany was such an interesting place - we loved Huelgoat and it's surroundings. Roy and Rosie, Devon. Sept 2009

Many thanks Sue and Judith for your warm friendly welcome. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your very comfortable and spacious Gite. We found it an ideal base for exploring both coast and countryside. Having the animals around was a real bonus their antics were both interesting and entertaining particularly those of the "non-conforming" hen. Thank you both again. Ann and Michael. Barnsley.

Idyllic peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

I thought Cornwall had all the Arthurian history, but staying here and with the help of the owners guidance and excellent information I learnt France and Huelgoat also has a call on the legends.

A wonderful gite, so perfectly equipped and spacious with surrounding open land made for a quiet and restful stay. The hosts happy to indulge our interest in their menagerie of ducks, hens and two entertaining goats were helpful in every aspect and even provide wifi if you cannot manage to enjoy the rest and need your connection with the real world to remain.

We found it an ideal location to explore from with the town within a short walk along the riverside and no doubt in summer the opportunity to use the nearby swimming pool too. A stroll round the lake blew away the cobwebs of the working weeks and the granite boulder canyon great to explore. Many walks exist through the surrounding forest exist and are suitable for exploring on foot or bicycle if you have one to hand.

There are lovely local shops in the town who tolerate the most broken of French and the market traders have a lovely range of fresh produce. If your French language skills are not strong a larger "Super U" supermarket can be found close by where self service make it easier to shop.

The drive down from Roscoff is so easy that we arrived earlier than expected, so make sure you can factor that in to your trip. It is worth it as the owners had cleaned the property to a spotless level by the time we came back to book in properly after kindly being allowed to deposit the main of our luggage before heading off to pick up shopping.

There are two gites to choose from here making it ideal if you have a larger family or group who want or need two separate rentals. The downstairs rental is all on one level and is easy access making it suitable if you lack mobility or just can't cope with stairs. The upstairs rental is just so cute with views across the countryside and is open planned giving it a lovely airy feel.

Although we visited in the cooler time of year, March, the heating was enough to keep us warm and toasty.

An excellent place to stay for relaxation, romance or just as a retreat from everyday life.
