Holiday Rental House
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.

About the neighbourhood
Our local village, Guegon, is just a 5 minute drive and contains a variety of local shops; facilities including bar, general store, 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 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 planted with 5,000 hydrangeas of 220 different species.
Getting around
Your own car will be essential to fully explore Brittany. We provide cycles for your use at the cottage and this is also a great way of exploring local villages and the canal cycle paths. If you have a cycle rack we recommend bring that to increase your range of options.
