A peaceful retreat
The property is exactly as presented on the web site. It's a beautiful location in a quiet valley close to the village of Locarn. The gite is fairly basic in what it provides but in line with the tariff, but it is comfortable and cosy. The steep narrow stairs and 2 single beds might not suit everyone. The TV is tiny and ancient and picks up only a selection British channels. There is no washing machine so a trip in to Carhaix-Plouger (20 minutes drive) is necessary although there is no information provided as to where you can find a laundromat. We found one just off the main street and also one next to Inter Marche. There is lots to see in this part of Brittany and nothing is too far away because the gite is very central to the 3 regions near by. The hosts (British) were very friendly and accommodating and did not impose themselves in any way. The gite was clean and presentable and the quality was 3 star but like I said, in line with the tariff. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and the old world charm of the villages is just amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here despite some shortcomings. The weather in October 14 was mainly good and some very warm days. The local markets have to be visited too for some great bargains. The local people are very friendly and were very accommodating to 2 Australians with very rusty French.
