more photos, info and booking


The cottage was built about 1900. It has a private south facing garden with views over the hamlet to the countryside beyond. There are 2 bedrooms, the main one has a double bed. The second has a triple sleeper, a double bed below and a single on top. There is a comfortable lounge with a granite fireplace and tiled floor. The kitchen is boats Fishing is available on the Brest canal. A day ticket that covers the lake and the Brest canal up as far as Bon Repose and costs €10 for the day. The whole lake area is surrounded by the Quenecan Forest, which is privately owned by the Count, (locally known as Jaques). Even on a busy day, the lake can hide the tourists, and remaining a natural area, there are still wild boar (not that you will see them). It is an area that can never be developed, that, and will never be spoilt. Although privately owned, the Count has has allowed pathways to be cleared through the forest, making it an walkers paradise, where you can enjoy the peace and quiet. There are hundreds of walks, you can always find quiet paths and avoid other people. Other Information The Cottage is hidden away, off the main street of the village (it is a quiet village). It is up a dead end lane that only goes up to about 12 houses. It is easy to go past the cottage without seeing it! Once you go around to the front of the house the garden and view open up. To get to the cycle track you go up the lane for about 400 m, then branch off up a path for about 100m. You reach the track, which goes for about 15 km to Mur de Bretagne in one direction. It goes for 45 km in the other direction, with one short break, to Carhaix. To get to the lake, it is down the lane, turn right at the bottom follow the lane around. Turn left past two ponds and follow the lane to the lake, this is about 600 m away. The Brest/Nantes canal is about 2 miles away (it runs into and out of the lake). The lake paths connect to it. The tow path is flat and suitable for walking and cycling. I believe that it is possible to go the whole way from Brest to Nantes on the tow path.
