This delightful stone cottage provides comfortable accommodation for up to 5 +1 baby and is less than 1km from the popular Lac de Guerlédan, a stunning lake 7 miles long that provides an abundance of activities for couples and families of all ages.
The property is in the heart of Brittany in the hamlet of Kergoff, tucked away up a quiet lane providing beautiful views. It is within walking distance (1km) to the village of Caurel. Caurel has 3 restaurants and cafe/bars and a wonderful glass making workshop and gallery where you can book a half day workshop and take home a piece of your own glass work.
There are numerous things to do in the area and the cottage is perfectly situated for those who love watersports. Guests could also bring their speedboat as water-skiing is allowed on the lake (the French champion) used to train here!
There are at least 5 restaurants around the lake, 3 of these are within 1km walk of the cottage. There is a cycle track accessible, 500m behind the Cottage.
There is no shortage of activities from swimming, skiing, canoeing, pedaloes, fishing (not on Lac de Guerledan until 2018 as the lake was drained in 2015, the fish were re stocked and are now re-establishing) but there are other places locally to fish. Also in the area, horse riding, quad bike hire and for the less energetic, plenty of wonderful cafes and restaurants to watch these from!
Mur de Bretagne is a charming town only a ten minute drive away and here there are supermarkets, shops, restaurants, markets, banks, post office and church and of course the wonderful boulangeries for delicious bread and patisseries!
You can also walk or cycle into Mur de Bretagne along the cycle track close to the cottage which was once a rural railway line. It goes for about 15 km to Mur de Bretagne in one direction and 45 km in the other direction to Carhaix. The Brest/Nantes canal is about 2 miles away (it runs into and out of the lake). The tow path is flat and suitable for walking and cycling.
Not far from the cottage is picturesque Bon Repos. The Abbey, situated at the side of canalis worth a visit. Every Sunday from May to October there is an artisan's market here. Also a couple of bars and a creperie. Each August, for two weeks, a spectacular "Son et Lumiere" is performed after dark. This is not to be missed!
