The cottage is situated on the edge of a traditional village, Trebrivan, and ten minutes by car from the market town of Carhaix with many shops, bars and restaurants.

Nearby is the Nantes/Brest canal, a historic waterway meandering through the Breton countryside and perfect for walking and cycling. The Black hills criss-crossed with footpaths are close by and just beyond, the moorland area of Monts d'Arée. The north, west and south coasts are within an easy one hour’s drive.

Just a few of the many recommended placed to visit in the area:


The charming medieval town of Quimper has a magnificent cathedral, and many shops, bars and restaurants adorning its cobbled streets. Southeast of the town lies the famous Pays de Bigouden, with its wild coastal region scattered with traditional fishing communities.

Pont Aven

One of the prettiest villages in Finistere with its many art galleries, a water mill, plenty of bars and restaurants and a river running through the centre of the village.


Huelgoat is a quiet village and is perfect for forest walks along the river to see the giant boulders and waterfalls. Brennilis is a village west of Huelgoat, at the foot of Mont St Michel, in the Monts d'Arrée. The Monts d'Arrée nature reserve centre at Brennilis has beaver and badger exhibitions. The countryside features hills, moorlands, peat bog with carnivorous plants and unusual grasses, river valleys, and the Lac de Saint Michel.


The bustling town of Chateaulin is a lovely town to visit with its bars and restaurants and the river running through the middle of the town. It is also the main area for salmon fishing.

Morlaix market

Fantastic, large Saturday morning market where you can buy fresh fish, delicious cheese and vegetables or just enjoy a coffee at a pavement café, watching the world go by!
