Whenever we find somewhere as wonderful as this it's an internal struggle to tell others about it because you want to keep the good news all to yourself, for future bookings!
However, Bryn and Val deserve to have it shouted from the rooftops! From the second we made our booking the communication and admin were superb and remained so.
The gite is relatively easy to find but they are helpful with directions and details and easily on hand if needed.
The location is gorgeous - up a little track fronting onto a quiet road, and with friendly goats as neighbours, who obliged with morning scratches on the nose. Despite the feeling of relative remoteness you're less than 5 minutes from excellent amenities in Callac in one direction and can indulge any need to get away from people in the other direction, with lovely lane walks past alpacas, as buzzards and kites soar overhead. It's a short trip from the gite up to atmospheric spots such as the beautiful little chapel to St Fiacre, a magical spot as the last rays of sunlight shine through the trees.
The gite is excellently equipped for a week of self-catering and whilst it was too warm to light the fire when we were there, the wood store is well-equipped to stoke things up in the gorgeous inglenook. It was spotlessly clean on arrival and we had a warm and helpful welcome coupled with plenty of privacy throughout, whilst knowing Bryn & Val were on-hand if needed. Parking is plentiful, there's a table outside for enjoying some local Muscadet as the sun sinks, a CD player for playing Breton music as you cook lovely local produce, to get you into the local mood, and the fairly central location means most places in Brittany can be reached with relatively little effort.
The fly-screens over the skylight are a brilliant touch, meaning you can enjoy the Breton air overnight without bug-chasing, and the owl in the tree outside was a much-loved companion as he hooted before dawn most mornings.
Bryn & Val evidently have a lot of love for this place and it was a privilege to stay there and meet them, we cannot recommend it enough.
