A Lovely House With A Magnificent View



Updated: 26-Apr-2016
House in Josselin, Morbihan, Brittany, France - Short Walk From The Historic Center (Restaurants, Bars, Shops, Market)

A cottage fully equipped, close to center of the city and the campaign. From the terrace you can have a drink while enjoying a slice of the history of Brittany. You can also walk on the tow-path of the Canal or in the Breton countryside (hiking, canoeing or boating). The lodge is also close to Ploermel (Cinema, shops, lake), the forest of Broceliande, Lizio (craft village), Rochefort en terre and plenty of other magical places. The sea is 45 minutes (Vannes) from Josselin.

* Just to say a huge thank you for our stay in your beautiful house. We loved Josselin and the area and thought your gite was the best place we have stayed in in the many years we have visited France. Not only was the house in a fantastic position but it was so thoughtfully equipped. A real "home from home". Lots of our friends who have seen our photos were extremely jealous!

Anyway mant thanks and best wishes to you and your family

* We are really enjoying our visit to your lovely house. Everything was as you said it would be - no problems at all. Thank you for the cider and the biscuits. The weather here is glorious and we feel very relaxed.

2013 :

We really enjoyed our time in your house, it being one of the best we've ever stay stay in. We have already recommended it to several friends ... things we particularly liked were the views, the terrace, the fell of the house and Josselin itself. THe location is superb.

We had a really good time. The town is just wonderful. The house was just great. We were amazed at how very well equipped it was, we had everything we needed. We spent most evenings on the balcony. I had some work to do and it was done looking out the window across canal and castle. Great Memories.

We enjoyed our holiday in Josselin and we liked the cottage.

Superb spot!

  • 5 of 5

Quirky property, in an excellent location, everything you need for a holiday, well equipped. The property is old but in great condition and clean. The stairs are quite narrow and steep, especially to the loft room on third floor, not a problem to us but may be for an older person or young toddler. The owners left a welcome gift, thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great location, spacious house, met all our needs.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this property, it was clean and had all the essentials.

A town centre location meant we didn't need the car often, yet it was idyllic and relaxing.

Owners Christelle and William were very welcoming and the welcoming gift was a nice touch.

Would definitely use again when going back to Josselin and would recommend.

Thanks Christelle and William

Very, very impressive!

  • 5 of 5

Believe it or not but the pictures are true. It is just that house across the river with full unobstructed view of the castle of Josselin. And entire house is yours!

We spent 10 there days and enjoyed every bit of it.

Many thanks!
