Ty Neve, pretty holiday hamlet
The quiet hamlet of Ty Neve is located on the edge of the national forest of Pont Callec; Ty Neve has a total area of 4 acres of well tended grounds and gardens to enjoy, along with a private woodland to explore. Both cottages have excellent views of the forest from different aspects. Each cottage has its own garden area which offers a patio area complete with furniture and a bbq. The 5mx11m fenced, heated swimming pool, with roman steps, is located to the right of both properties and has a generous sun terrace with sun loungers and parasols, this also overlooks the Scorff river valley offering spectacular views whilst you relax with your family in the lovely Breton sunshine.
If you tire of sunbathing then you can be more active by taking advantage of our badminton area, table tennis or boules. Maybe go for a cycle ride, bring your own or use one of ours, explore by foot the enchanting forests that surround us or see if you can find the remains of the medieval hamlet in Pont Callec. If all that sounds too much you can choose to chill out in the hot tub which is situated just behind La Coppice; it is available all seasons.
For those that can't switch off or need to keep connected internet access is available on site.
We have an additional property on site that we may rent out if you would like details bout this please contact us.

Why Karen Orman chose Le Faouet area
We bought our property whilst on holiday in the area in 2003. We instantly fell in love the view also the building and its unusual and quirky features, the most prominent being the ancient spiral stone staircase to the rear of the longere.
It is so peaceful here as to be untrue compared to the hustle and fast pace of life we left behind in England.
We hope to share some of the magic of Ty Neve with you.

We stayed in La Coppice. It was very well equipped and we had a thoroughly relaxing stay here. The Owners, family & pets welcomed us warmly and made our holiday! Nothing was too much trouble and we had a great holiday. There are lots of walks within the area and the coast is not too far away. A hidden gem is the deer wildlife park within 15 km where you can walk or use a buggy deer spotting. We are already planning a longer return visit here as Ty Neve ticked every single box for us.
Extremely well equipped and maintained property in idyllic surroundings run by a welcoming and friendly family committed to making your stay as perfect as possible . Can't wait to return

Lovely gite, relaxing holiday!
We had a great holiday at Ty Neve. We wanted somewhere with a pool and good outdoor space for our 2 boys and Ty Neve fitted the bill really well. The boys loved the pool (and hot tub!) and it was great having so much space for them to run around and play cricket and hide and seek. And after 2 weeks we came back home very relaxed indeed.
The gite itself had everything we needed in terms of facilities and kitchen equipment and Karey was on hand to help with anything we required or answer our questions. We enjoyed having the BBQ and outdoor seating space too. There’s a good supermarket in Plouay about 10 mins drive from Ty Neve and a great baker in the local village.
Ty Neve is beautifully situated in quiet countryside with tons of wildlife but within reach of many different place to visit and things to do. We discovered lovely beaches within ~30-40 mins drive and fabulous markets, had a great day biking the Blavet valley and loved Concarneau. The boys also loved the submarine museum and Ocean yachting museum at Lorient, which also has a fabulous celtic music festival in the summer. We were generally lucky with the weather so we spent a lot of time outside and in the pool but if its wet there is also enough to do within reasonable driving distance to entertain the kids e.g. the aquatic centre at Quimperle, Ocean yachting museum at Lorient.
We enjoyed our time at Ty Neve so much we’ve decided to go back again this year as the boys loved it and there’s still so much we want to see and do (Auray, Vannes, Belle isle, Carnac, Lac du Guerledan).
