Canal Cottage is located in a quiet, rural hamlet just off the D125 between Gueltas and Rohan, it is within walking distance (40mins) along the towpath to the nearest village Rohan where most things required for your holiday can be purchased. In the village are 4 good restaurants, 2 Boulangeries, Pharmacy, Tabac, local bars etc. Markets are held weekly in Rohan, Pontivy and Loudeac and the owners bicycles are available for use on request.

All accommodation on offer is situated on the first floor with its own private entrance, the owners live on the ground floor, both units being separated by a thermal and acoustic insulated new suspended floor and is indicated on the photo’s as the stone building. The cream rendered building attached is owned by and used for storage by the owners and is therefore not habitable. The property is in a quiet and peaceful location but not isolated and is within easy reach to local amenities. Ample parking is available off-road to the side of the cottage for cars with private access to the first floor and ample parking to the rear for motorcycles . It is a great ‘central’ base from which to explore Brittany. The first floor accommodation was created during 2014/16 to a high standard with other extensive renovations to the whole cottage and grounds. Whilst suitable for children we suggest the accommodation is not suited for infants under approx. 5 years due to the open tread staircase and non-availability of stairgate, cot and high chair.

Whilst the owners are living on the ground floor they will be available for as much or as little that you want.

Accommodation will comprise of Lounge/Diner/and kitchenette, 2 double bedrooms,     2 single bedrooms, shower room (including wc and basin), separate wc and basin with the apartment having its own private entrance. Access will be available to the full external area amounting to just under 1 acre and includes a large patio for your use, grassed area, garden and with availability to use the hot tub !!

The garden backs onto the Brest to Nantes canal with access to the picturesque tow path via the nearby Lock Gates. The canal tow path is the perfect place for a peaceful leisurely stroll.

The nearest village of Rohan (3.5k) is easily reached via the available bicycles, car or walking the towpath (approx. 40mins). Larger towns of Pontivy or Loudeac can be reached by the car in 12-15 mins.
