“Great House”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The house is in a perfect position next to the lake in a quiet area of town and is an easy nice walk to town. The house was very spacious both internally and externally and the kids had plenty to do all week and loved it. The owner was very helpful together with the caretaker go over and above any owner that we have previously come across in ensuring everything is in place for you when you arrive and during your stay. Huelgoat was a lovely place and a good base to explore Brittany and we will certainly come back to Lake view villas.

We would definitely recommend Lake view villas to anyone.

A very large Villa, ideal for large groups...extended families...lovely views from large windows, warm and inviting. The owners Richard and Helen go above and beyond any owners we have come across and are very accommodating. Great location near the attractions a large super market and the centre of Huelgoat. Thank you not only to the owners but the lovely house keeper Marie-Christine.

“Wonderful house, lovely garden!”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

 
“I would like to say how very much we enjoyed our stay at Lake View Villas. It is indeed a fabulous house with a lovely garden, in a really great location.
Huelgoat is a really nice little town, only 5 minutes walk from the villa, and it has an excellent boulangerie/patisserie for delicious  morning croissants and evening cakes! Both the children and the dog spent many happy hours clambering over the countless giant boulders in the area. We also really enjoyed the villa's garden, it was great to be able to play table tennis (every day, I think!!), boules and badminton. The pool room also proved popular with our boys.
 
I would also like to thank the owners for all the little 'extras' which made our holiday even better. The map of Brittany, which was sent out to us before we came, was a great help. Madame Kerdanet, the caretaker, was really kind (and her English is excellent - wish my French was better!), and we really appreciated the supplies which were provided to get us off to a good start - especially the fresh produce - the baguette and the butter, milk, juice, ham & cheese all ready for us in the fridge when we arrived.
Rest assured that if the boys want to return to Brittany next year (and they might well do!), then we will look no further than Lake View Villas!”

“The perfect venue for a houseparty in Brittany!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Quite simply, an unbeatable place to stay for a great holiday if you have a group large enough to justify it.

I was looking for a special place in France for a week’s holiday to celebrate my wife’s ‘special birthday’ with friends. Richard and Helen, the owners of Lake View Villas, were our neighbours in England 7-8 years ago soon after they had bought it, and I recalled Richard talking about it. When he sent out a circular email reminding friends and acquaintances that it was available for rental I got in touch to find out more.

We knew it would be special, because Richard and Helen put so much effort and care into whatever they do, but it still exceeded our expectations. The house is beautiful, yet comfortable, relaxing and extremely well equipped with everything one could need; the welcome from Marie-Christine was warm; the welcome pack that Richard and Helen had put together was thoughtful and comprehensive; and Huelgoat is a charming little town on the lake. Unusually for Francophiles we had not previously visited the western part of Brittany, and we loved it.

Altogether there were 6 teenagers in our party and they were kept very well occupied by the amenities in the house and garden (pool table, music and DVDs, table tennis, boule, badminton), which allowed the adults to fully relax and enjoy each other’s company.

We look forward to returning!

“Brilliant house, great location”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Wow! This one was a treat. Really well appointed, characterful house in a decent sized garden on the edge of Huelgoat (easy walking distance). Lots of room for loads of people. The owners are generous in stocking up the house, and most facilities are there. The town is very pretty, a destination in itself but surprisingly quiet for August. Easy enough trip to the west coast for beaches, lots of local walking and cycling. Definitely one to return to.

“A roomy villa, full of character.”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had the most wonderful time at Lake View Villas. We really appreciated all the care and thoughtfulness, which went into the presentation of the Villa: a perfect setting for our Golden Wedding celebration. We were struck by the warmth of Marie-Christine's welcome on arrival.
The detailed guidance notes you provided were brilliant, and we were able to access many of the local attractions.
A huge thank you for making it possible”

“Exceeds expectations!”
Reviewed 5 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

If you think that the description might be "too good to be true, " fear not! Lake View Villas and Huelgoat exceeded our expectations in every way. The house is more beautiful than the photographs, it really is situated within easy walking distance of the hiking trails, centre-ville, and supermarket, and the owners and caretaker could not possibly be more generous and helpful. In preparation for our trip, we asked about a driving route from Paris and were answered with detailed directions for two interesting routes, illustrated with photographs. The welcome basket and amentities go far beyond the necessary in an effort to make the home truly comfortable.

Huelgoat is like a little town in a fairy tale. True to its name, La Forêt Enchantée must be peopled with fairies and moss-men who move about when no one is looking. The owners provide thoughtful information on the town itself and the many wonderful places you might choose to visit. The only downside to all of this is that eventually, you will have to leave...
