Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Könnte man auch länger bleiben
Sehr liebevoll und persönlich eingerichtetes Haus. Schönes großes Grundstück mit Sonnen und Schattenplätzen, vielen Blumen, Sträuchern und großen, alten Bäumen. Ruhige Umgebung und trotzdem schnell in Josselin. Allerdings ohne Auto geht fast nichts.

Excellent Property
A lovely property in a peaceful location in the countryside. The owners have provided everything you could possibly need in a homely environment. Conveniently situated for Josselin and the south Brittany coast. We would be very happy to return.

Perfect holiday cottage to relax
We had a wonderful and relaxing two weeks holiday at this traditional French cottage near Josselin. Every morning, we enjoyed breakfast in the large garden. We visited the nearby beautiful typical French villages. The owners have a detailed tourist guide available, which was very helpful in deciding our next day trip. All amenities are present and working. There are even a few cross-country bikes in the shed for those who want to test their physical readiness. Martin always react very fast to any mail that you send him. If you are looking for a peaceful and quiet environment, this is the place to be!

Excellent property in every way.
Location wise it is in the heart of the Breton countryside but a short drive to supermarkets at Josselin, and it is not far to visit many other places in Britanny. The property is clean,comfortable and extremely well equipped, the owners have thought of everything. It has a large garden and the great advantage of being able to walk from the house to the local woodland, and there are maps in the house to use for longer walks. It was ideal place to stay and we hope to go back in the autumn.

Wonderful countryside cottage in gorgeous surroundings
Lovely cottage that can get really cosy with heating/ log fire. Lots of entertainment to keep you occupied and a wonderful part of the world within easy driving distance of many lovely places (can highly recommend Rochefort en Terre and the sculpture park nearby). We used the bikes and took our 9 month old on her first every bike ride using the baby carrier provided. The house was fully equipped for babies. I can highly recommend this cottage for anyone looking to explore the Brittany countryside and coastline. The owners were a pleasure to deal with.

Lovely gite for a relaxing autumn break
The gite is set in lovely countryside, especially as we had all the colours of autumn when we were there. This cottage is very spacious, comfortable and incredibly well-equipped. The log burner (with logs provided!) made the place particularly cosy. The location is very central for visiting in the area from rural countryside to seaside. Walking around the gite is quiet and enjoyable. The cottage was great for us as a couple but would be great for a family stay. We would highly recommend it.

Perfect, peaceful and well equiped gite for families
A wonderfully rural retreat, for 6 away of the beaten track yet within easy reach of many interesting sites and attractions. Well equipped with a mine of information about local and more distant places to visit, together with distances and travel times. The large garden is certainly child friendly, but a cautionary note, there are adders in the undergrowth!. Driving on the local roads is easy with little traffic although the major routes and towns can be busier/ I would recommend the gite to anyone, as the perfect place to relax and unwind and do as little or as much as you would like.

Stunning gite tailored for every need
This gite is an absolute gem. The owners catered for our every need above and beyond what are required for a wonderful holiday in the French countryside. Having spent many years enjoying traditional gite holidays in France, we are able to honestly state that La Ville au Tady has been by far the best house we have stayed in. Quality and consideration for the guests are clearly the priority. Thank you.

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.
