Saint-Thois, Chateauneuf du Faou, Finistere, Brittany
Stang Korvenn (an ancient Breton name) is a traditional stone built long house or "longere" comprising a large farmhouse and this attached but separate Cottage, "Gite du Vert Rivage" which sleeps up to 5 people in 2 bedrooms. The cottage, newly refurbished this year, is comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a cosy country holiday in a place that is very "far from the madding crowds". The rear of the house looks directly onto the lovely river Aulne as it sweeps peacefully by.

There is direct access from the secluded wooded gardens to the beautiful river (part of the-Nantes Brest canal), one of the best fishing spots you'll find anywhere. Being just off a quiet main road allows easy access to the wonderful empty roads of the region and dozens of places to explore within easy re...

Fantastic gite with wonderful garden with all the luxuries of home! Lots of space and comfy beds. Jill and Bryan really have thought of everything and were so friendly and helpful. It was lovely to have some supplies there waiting for us. The children adored the freedom of the wonderful garden, meeting the animals and the games barn. It was...

Management response:

It was a real pleasure to have you and your delightful children staying - their obvious enjoyment of the place was lovely to see. Please do come again one day, you know you'd be very welcome.

Perfect interim solution, while we searched, bought and secured our new home in Brittany, made more so by our hosts, Bryan and Jilly, who ensured we wanted for nothing. Perfect location in an ideal rural setting close to the picturesque town of Chateauneuf du Faou. Excellent road links (useful for our search area) and plenty of places of interest to...

Management response:

A pleasure to have you both here Doug! Good luck in the new home and thanks very much for your kind review.

This was our second stay at the gite, having been so thrilled with our week here last year, and we were not dissapointed upon our return. A warm welcome from Jill and Bryan made us feel right at home after an arduous journey and the welcome pack really takes the pressure of on that first evening. The cottage itself was...

About the neighbourhood
Less than 30 minutes from the beautiful mediaeval city of Quimper, the region capital, it makes an excellent base from which to explore this truly unspoilt and inspiring part of the world.

The roads in this part of Brittany are delightfully empty, even in the height of summer, as they sweep through the glorious rolling countryside, perfect for motorbikes (and open top sports cars and cyclists). We have a covered lean to where you can park your Harley(s) or Ducati or whatever - and a lockable barn for bicycles.

Public transport is virtually non-existent, so your own independent transport is advised. There are excellent cycle routes all over Brittany and the 300+ kilometre cycle path along the Nantes Brest canal passes the house, so ideal for a cycling holiday. Plenty of room to park...
