Une Belle Retraite

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we first saw Petite Longere we fell in love with it. The position was peaceful, the grounds delightful and the accommodation homely, comfortable and welcoming. Well equipped both inside and out, accurate description, and facilities excellent for a one week stay or much longer in the future. The use of well maintained bicycles were an added bonus which we enjoyed using. The Huelgoat area and town is delightful with excellent and welcoming restaurants after long walks in the magical forest with huge and impressive rock formations, natural features and flowers. The owner provided a friendly and informative service before and after our stay which we would definitely recommend to others. The property was clean and tidy and ready to begin a memorable welcome break. An excellent selection of local reading material helped us plan our days and future visits. The Petit Longere was much more than Petit with spacious accommodation and storage. We felt very much at home there. A beautiful retreat - Une belle retraite.

Visit to Brittany June 2015

  • 4 of 5

Ty Hir was correctly described, so no surprises. Excellent route details. The property was in good order and complete. The locality is rural and very quiet, with lots of birds and other wildlife. We enjoyed the large garden, & local walks which were peaceful and traffic free. There is a beautiful small river a short walk away which we often visited. We would certainly recommend it for a couple or a small family. Just one reservation the wooden staircase needs care for small children or nocturnal visits to the downstairs bathroom.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Ty Hir and found the directions easy to follow. We also enjoy the local walks and peaceful countryside. We agree that people need to take care when using a staircase and always use the handrail ourselves. Maria and Andy
