Guestbook comments from the manager

Jon; UK

Wonderful property in a peaceful location. The cottage is spacious and very well equipped. The swimming pool, children's games and the spaciousness of the garden area all make this property very well suited for families. The cottage is in a rural area with several villages nearby, and larger towns 15-20 min drive away. Thoroughly recommended for a welcoming, relaxing holiday location in a beautiful part of France, with excellent facilities and provisions.



Kate; Scotland

The accommodation is really excellent and has all the mod cons you need while retaining original features.The owners were extremely helpful providing information about a wealth of interesting places to visit in the local area. We had a fantastic holiday just sorry we only had one week, a 2nd week relaxing by the pool would have been fantastic.

What makes our stay memorable is the large grounds which allow the children freedom to play and explore whilst being safe.

Perfect family get away

  • 5 of 5

We arrived slightly early and from that moment we were made to feel extremely welcome. The owners couldn't be more helpful. We have three children aged 14,12 and 7 and there is plenty to keep them entertained .We were fortunate enough to have three days of glorious hot sunshine meaning the kids could make the most of the large pool. When not in the pool the older boys become masters of table tennis , while our youngest daughter burned her energy off on the trampoline and swings. As parents we could relax knowing they were able to run around and play safely within the grounds. The cottage is beautiful and is fully equipped with everything you need. We would highly recommend this cottage and would come back again without any hesitation.

Fantastic cottage in a lovely part of Brittanny

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Owl Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed both the area and the facilities available at the cottage. There was plenty of information about the area in the cottage guide folder and failing that the owners were very helpful but not intrusive so just what you need. The cottage itself would easily cater for 6 people and one of the twin bedrooms is separate (with it's own staircase) so would be really good for when our boys are older and want their own space. As well as the games, the garden area then extends into a field so you have a large amount of space and privacy around you.

There is a small town with a supermarket, bakeries and restaurants about 4km away (15 mins by bike) which was very handy and the pretty town of Josselin is only ~10-15 minutes away.

Further afield the Lac au Duc is a good place for watersports or a 14 km cycle ride or walk and the beaches at Damgan are large and not too busy. Our favourite was cycling along the canal and then coming back for a swim. The kids loved being able to try lots of different games and it was good fun playing table tennis in the evening.

Very relaxing family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage with great equipment for children. Hosts could not have been more welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Lots to do for families in the area from bike riding, canoeing and visits to the beach.

All in all a very relaxing 2 weeks

Wonderful property in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our three daughters stayed in Owl Cottage and had a wonderful time. Mr & Mrs Muller were extremely welcoming and helpful, and the cottage is spacious and very well equipped. The swimming pool, children's games and the spaciousness of the garden area all make this property very well suited for families. The cottage is in a rural area with several villages nearby, and larger towns 15-20 min drive away. Josselin and Pontivy are well worth a visit, as are Carnac and Vannes further afield. Thoroughly recommended for a welcoming, relaxing holiday location in a beautiful part of France, with excellent facilities and provisions.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

Gite has access to large private lands suited to children who can play and explore in safety. Friendly owners on-site nearby. Gite has all the practical necessities including wifi.

Lots to see and do nearby or just relaxing.

Tranquil location ideal for getting away from it all. Sorry to leave could stay much longer...

WiFi and Internet is available free of charge. TV is available in English, French and German languages. Blu-ray DVD player. From home-to-home - that is our motto. Our goal is for you to just pack your cases with your clothes and cosmetics and arrive at our cottage with everything you need for a household when you arrive. We offer fully equipped homes for your holiday, as well as many other additional services to make your stay as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. Your living areas are always private, but we are on the grounds in case you need any assistance or have any questions. Parc de Lutin is set in nearly six acres of enclosed and fenced grounds (privacy as well as security for your children). The property consist of the owners’ home with “The Annexe” attached and a separate cottage “Owl Cottage” with its own private drive (after we discovered 7 barn owl chicks in The Owl Cottage chimney in 2012).
