The property is situated in a small rural hamlet and near to a working farm. There is off road parking and a garden sitting barbecue area. The hamlet of Treveran is 1km from the historic town of Josselin in the Morbihan region of France. Josselin situated on the Nantes Brest Canal is famous for its magnificent castle and medieval architecture.

The property consists of a longere and cottage in an L shape. Peaceful but not isolated the cottage is centrally situated and an ideal base from which to explore the Morbihan region of Brittany. The house is a short drive from a very popular lake with man made beaches. Wireless internet access is available.

The cottage is constructed of traditional Breton stone. The cottage has a spacious living/dining area with a large wood burning stove. There is a small kitchen, a shower room and two bedrooms,...

Interaction with guests
The area is ideal for walkers, cyclists, bikers and horse riders. For keen walkers/cyclists it is ideal to plan larger hikes using local maps which the owner can advise - they differ from UK ordnance survey and take a bit of getting used. Previous cycling parties have used the Nantes Brest Canal as a navigational guide as there is a very good path along the entire route of the canal. For more moderate walkers such as the owners there are marked circular routes from various locations in the region - approx 100. You can request suggestions for walks from the owners - just give an idea of distance. There are several circular walks of 4 to 9 km. The owners have also noted places to walk for people with wheelchairs and limited mobility.

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at this cottage. While it has all the peace and quiet associated with a rural location, it is also convenient to Josselin and ideal for exploring the surrounding area. The cottage is well equipped and has a good...More

We enjoyed a few days in stunning Brittany. The accommodation is in good condition and comfortable. It's a pleasant one mile walk into Josselin, good road links for exploring the area and further afield. We are happy to recommend Le Petit Maineau

About the neighbourhood
Ploermel and Pontivy also have interesting attractions and a great variety of shops.Ten minutes drive from the house is the Lac au Duc which is a large lake with man made beaches,water activities, walks and also a golf course. This is very popular for families with younger children as the water tends to be warmer than the sea and there are no big waves.

There are walks around the house and it is easy to easily walk down to the canal and into Josselin. I have made a PDF describing different local walks and there are local maps in the house for those wanting to venture further on foot. It is possible to hire bikes in Josselin in the main season and to hire a boat for the canal. We often have return visitors who are cyclists as they have unexplored places they planned on visiting but did no...
Getting around
We have had several guests who have arrived with their bikes and used public transport. Personally we think a car is recommended. Depending on personal mobility Josselin is approx 1km from the house and there are several routes to walk into town including via the canal. Bikes can be hired in Josselin in the main season and it is possible to hire boats.Parking is not a problem in any of the local towns and is usually free.
We have had several cycling groups who have enjoyed the quiet roads and easy access generally. Cycling is a big pass time in France so cyclists are well catered for.
There are riding centres in the area and the owner would recommend the riding centre in Brociliande to explore the forest on horseback.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Dinard: 30.0 km
Ferry: St Malo: 50.0 km
Depending on where you set off from in the UK there are several crossings.
Plymouth - Roscoff which we use as we live in Devon
Poole - Cherbourg - a slightly longer drive but the cheapest shortest ferry option
Portsmouth - St Malo - If you travel from the South East - St Malo is the closest port to our house.
We have a ferry code for a 15% discount if this is helpful.
Several UK clients use the channel tunnel even though this is a longer drive.
We have had guests make the journey with bikes and public transport and they say they had a great holiday - personally we think a car is recommended.
