A little bit of paradise - many thanks.

A very enjoyable and comfortable stay in a rural bliss. John Thomas (our Jack Russell) a true and loyal companion who should play football for Chelsea!

Lovely ancient cottage set in rural Brittany

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage sitting in a former Farmyard 500 yards or so off the main road. It is surrounded by wooded hills and fields with a river babbling away near by. Plenty of wonderful walks can be found with no restrictions of where you can go.

The property retains its features whilst accommodating the necessary modern additions required by holidaymakers. Shops, restaurants and bread shops are not far away with the West coast about 45 minutes away.

The loverly couple who own the cottage and live onsite in the farmhouse could not have been more attentive or welcoming.

We loved it so much we are going back in 2016.

Gite Treat

  • 5 of 5

The four of us we travelled there in our little car

We only live in Plymouth so we didn't go too far

Our satnav didn't speak good French and left us in the lurch

So Fiona came to Colorec and met us by the church

As we drove into the courtyard we were really blown away

By the cottage and it's character a lovely place to stay

Before we went to look inside the pets joined in the fun

The cats and dogs were friendly but we were taken most by one

A certain little terrier thrust himself upon us

With punctured ball between his teeth his name it is John Thomas!

Once inside we oohed & aahed at every wooden beam

The style and character made us feel like cats who got the cream

Ancient charm just oozed from every cranny every nook

And each and every corner was stacked high with piles of books

We loved the random decor and crooked little stairs

The perfect place to cast away our worries and our cares

We turned up there with loo rolls cleaning things and bat and ball

But got there to discover that they provide it all

It's the ideal place to stay amidst the Breton countryside

Then head in all directions exploring far and wide

We walked around Concarneau loving each and every step

And sat there in the sunshine eating lovely citron crepes

We loved it up in Huelgoat and even beat the rain

By nipping in a cafe and eating crepes again!

We drove out west towards the sea we had some frites and moules

And then went down on to the beach and had a game of boules

It sounds like we just sat around eating all the time

But that's not true we also drank quite a lot of wine!

But then we headed back home to the hustle and the bustle

We had to check our luggage for a stowaway Jack Russell!

Thank you Robbie & Fiona we loved your gorgeous gite

We all enjoyed our time there - Martin Kathy Dawn & Pete.
