In the heart of Southern Brittany's beautiful countryside rest Vine and Wisteria Cottages. They are part of a small hamlet called Nevedic (meaning Little Sanctuary in Breton) within a conservation area, of which the peace and tranquility has hardly changed since the reign of Louis XIV. These beautiful stone cottages have breathtaking vaulted ceilings, highlighting wonderful beams and each cottage has a huge Breton fireplace at its heart. Discover at your leisure 1 acre garden complete with wood burning hot tub, a potager full of flowers, herbs and vegetables and many hidden corners to sit and relax. Nevedic Wood has many paths leading to the Blavet river and the small town of Quistinic can be reached this way if you do not wish to drive. A cycle/footpath runs beside the river passing through towns and hamlets to the coast in one direction or Pontivy in the other. This area is perfect for mountain biking, road cycling, trail running, kayaking and walking. Poul Fetan, the 16th Century Village of French Culture is 5 minutes walk away and makes for a perfect day out with costumed hosts reinacting life here in the past and a tavern selling local ciders and beers and Breton meals.

About the Owner
About Linda Huggins
We are Linda and David Huggins and we come from Buckinghamshire.
We spent most of our adult lives working with children and young adults and are now happy to welcome guests to this special place.
Why Linda Huggins chose Lorient area
We chose this part of Brittany for our holiday cottages because of it peace and tranquility. In this little stone hamlet there is a feeling that time has stood still. There are fantastic opportunities for walking, cycling, fishing and sight seeing. The tow path along the River Blavet snakes its way from Pontivy to the coast travelling past small villages, forests and weirs and is a well maintained footpath and cycleway.
The beaches are within an easy drive and are well worth visiting. Here you can sail, swim, fish or just enjoy watching the world go by.
Ancient towns, like Josselin, Auray and Vannes, with places of interest, markets and shops abound and can be reached easily.
Many guests make a trip to see the ancient standing stones at Carnac.
What makes this cottage unique

On arrival at Wisteria Cottage we were enchanted by the ambience of the setting and residence. Linda & David had every angle covered; the log fire was lit for a cosy feel... And more... Every comfort was covered, from a delicious and practical welcome pack to towels, toilet rolls and beyond. On our first evening David offered to take and pick us up for a meal at the 'Blanc Cheval,' - which was ,amazing.(Linda booked us in :) ) I have to mention the hot tub...WOW - what an astral experience; stars,candles and atmosphere galore. I almost feel reluctant at sharing how special our time was at Wisteria Cottage, because if I can't get my booking as you have got in before me I will spit! Jo, Drew& Hats :) :) :) :) :) five smiles
Breton Country Paradise.
We stayed in Wisteria Cottage for a week with another couple. Linda and David gave us such a wonderful warm welcome on our arrival making us feel immediately at home. They really took hosting to a different level, although respecting our privacy they were never far away for all our needs and a friendly chat! The cottages have been recently, beautifully, restored to a very high standard with an exquisite cozy feel and all your home comforts. As we entered the cottage another lovely touch was a wonderfully stacked welcome hamper provided by Linda and David with some essentials and so much more! The countryside surrounding the cottage is stunning with woodland walks taking in amazing views of the river as it meanders through the valley and local restaurants and waterside cafe again within walking distance. The night sky is breath taking with shooting stars and what better way to enjoy it than relaxing back in the naturally wood fired hot tub after your days excursions. If you want to explore further afield the cottages are also well placed to drive to picturesque medieval towns such as Josslin and Vannes. To Linda and David we would like to thank you both again for making our holiday truly memorable! To those wanting the most perfect Breton Break look no further then Wisteria / Vine Cottages!!!
A perfect place to stay
Wisteria Cottage is a perfect place to stay if you want a peaceful and quiet holiday. It is tucked away in a very small village and has been beautifully restored with modern facilities and equipment. It is very clean, well-maintained, and spacious, and easily accommodates 4 people. The owners who live nearby are helpful and available without being intrusive. We hope to return one day so would thoroughly recommend this to friends and relatives.
There are plenty of places to visit nearby, but it's definitely worth going to see the Domaine de Kerguehennec (chateau with sculptures in the grounds), the Abbe de Bon Repos, the chateau at Josselin (which is breathtaking when viewed from the river), the Citadel at Port Louis, the church and memorial at St Anne D'Auray, and Saint-Gustan. A real must is Poul Fetan which is right on the doorstep and you can buy bread and delicious pastries there. The area itself is rural and very pretty, and Quistinic is a picturesque village where you can buy croissants and baguettes.
Our stay at Wisteria Cottage
We spent a wonderful two weeks in Wisteria Cottage. It is a lovely place, spotlessly clean, so well equipped and beautifully renovated. The owners, Caz and Ron Munro, were exceptionally kind and helpful especially when an emergency dental appointment was needed! They made us so welcome and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. Nevedic is a delightful hamlet, so peaceful, with the interesting Poul Fetan museum nearby which is so well worth a visit. Not far away Pont Augan with its wonderful walks along the Blavet river where we spent so many happy hours appreciating the peace and tranquillity. For us it was a perfect fortnight in a perfect gite and one we would recommend to anyone wanting to hoiiday in rural Southern Brittany.
I am pleased to be able to write a review about the very comfortable and nicely furnished Wisteria Cottage. We were 4 adults and found the cottage very spacious, well equipped and very clean and easy to maintain. The beds are very comfortable. There is a large pretty garden to relax in. The owners are a charming couple, really helpful and very friendly. There is so much to see and do in the area and wonderful restaurants to eat in. The journey to and from St Malo was a very easy drive. We have recommended the property to friends.
