Josselin, Morbihan, Brittany
La Ville au Tady is a detached cottage in over 1 acre of land. It is a traditional Breton long-house, or longère, that has been sympathetically renovated to retain its charm and character. Located in a small hamlet in Southern Brittany, the local village of Guegon is just a few minutes drive through quiet country lanes. Within the village you will find several bars, a general store, restaurant and the essential boulangerie-patisserie for your fresh baked baguette and croissants. The area is perfect for exploring on foot or cycle, with a designated cycle route passing through the hamlet. The medieval town of Josselin with its famous château, 17th Century half-timbered buildings, bars and restaurants is a scenic four mile drive. Brittany's largest inland lake is located nearby, with swimming, golf and water sport facilities. Superb beac... Read more

Without exception this cottage is not only one of the best equipped we've ever rented, but the owners provided every extra you could want - and usually have to buy. Just add people, food and wine and you've got a perfect holiday. Southern Brittany has some stunning venues to visit, and after that the enormous garden is the perfect place...

Worth every minute of the drive from the ferry (Roscoff, but Saint Malo is probably nearer). Very clean, every home comfort considered and provided for. Lots of space for everyone. Wonderful gardens - we sat in them every day, ate lunch, dinner and even one breakfast outside, and admired the many butterflies, bees and lizards who were busying around. The...

La Ville au Tady was a perfect place to relax in rural Brittany. The cottage gardens were full of birdsong and the bees and hummingbird moths on the lavender were a treat. We chose this area to explore the Nantes - Brest canal and it didn't disappoint. The cottage was extremely well appointed and a real home from home. The...

Our local village, Guegon, is just a 5 minute drive and contains a variety of local shops; facilities including bar, general store, excellent boulangerie-patisserie, boules court, tennis courts.

Our local town, Josselin, (10 mins) is a medieval town of character designated a Petite Cité de Caractère and Floral Town. It boasts a famous riverside Château, 11th century Church and 17th century housing. There is a fine selection of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops, and a bustling Saturday market. We think it is one of the best small towns in Brittany.

A 20min. drive away is Dukes Lake, at over 600 acres one of the largest in Brittany, with a man made beach, lake swimming, sailing, kayaking, water-skiing, and pedalos. There is also a cafe, an excellent golf course, and a lakeside trail...
