Vanessa and David purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Vanessa and David chose Canihuel

We purchased this property as the location is fantastic, over looking the tranquil Lac de Pellinec and also benefiting from a very good restaurant a short walk away. The three cottages have been renovated to a very high standard and benefit from the newly built in ground heated swimming pool.

What makes this cottage unique

All of our cottages will benefit from the stunning view over looking the lake. The lake is ideal for guest wishing to fish or just soak up the view. The Auberge de Pellinec restaurant is a few minutes walk away and offer very good home cooked food. It is run by husband and wife, Patricia speaks excellent English!

Fantastic group of cottages

  • 5 of 5

We rented Gable End, The Old Stables and Cherry Tree Cottage for half term week. This was a group holiday for 16 of us with children of school age. We chose these cottages as it provided the right mix of accommodation for a group of this size and being able to have the whole complex to ourselves was an added bonus. Inside the cottages have all you require for a self catering holiday and are nicely decorated and furnished without the need to start moving lots of items out of the way of small children. The kitchens were well equipped which really makes the difference as we have rented cottages before and only get a limited amount of pots and pans etc.

The pool was great, being fenced was an added bonus so we did not have to be constantly on the lookout for young children wandering off on their own.

The restaurant is just down the lane and also looks out over the lake, and is excellent value for money especially with the exchange rate at the moment. It was nice to be able to walk to the restaurant in the evenings and have a drink as we would not need to drive home afterwards.

The lake really is on your doorstep, great for anybody that wants to go fishing.

The nearest supermarket is less than five minutes in the car so not too far ! We have stayed in cottages before and it has been a twenty minute drive to the supermarket.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and will be recommending the cottages to family and friends.

Car: necessary


Easy access to the 3 different coastlines is approx one hours drive-away. Within 15 mins drive you can be at the beautiful 8 mile long Lac de Guerledan with its 3 man-made clean sandy beaches and the Nantes to Brest Canal where you can enjoy many miles of walking and cycling.


Our nearest ferry ports of St Malo and Roscoff and about 1 1/2 hours easy drive, Cherbourg and Caen are a little further at approx 3 to 3 1/2 hours drive. The channel tunnel is 7 hours by car. If you are looking at airports, Brest, Nantes, Rennes and Dinard are all within easy reach .


Lake View Cottages are 2 miles drive away from Saint Nicolas du Pelem which has a large supermarket, banks, chemist and boulangery and a large outdoor pool with water slides. The market town of Rostrenen with a choice of 3 supermarkets is 15 mins drive away. The larger towns of St Brieuc, Pontivy are approx 1/2 an hours easy drive.

A new indoor pool is being built in one of the local villages and is due to open in June 2014.

Further Details:

Lake View Cottages has an Auberge restaurant within walking distance and here you can have a 4 course evening meal for just over eighteen euros however there are many other good value restaurants within a short drive including two with michelin stars. The lake is well stocked for fishing and permits can be bought from any of the local shops.
