A very relaxing time in a charming location
We had a very pleasant week here. The location is so good - a ten minute stroll along the towpath to the town, and Josselin itself is charming and peaceful but still a working town.
This is a proper holiday cottage for a family or group, a place to sprawl and relax. It is not a twee and over-decorated B&B where you are afraid to move lest you knock something over, and where you need to keep your children on a leash - it is a place to slump down in a chair with a cup of tea or a glass of wine and a detective story (and there is a fair library of easy holiday reading in the cottage, and a fine English bookshop in the town). Or to sit around the kitchen table and argue about how little to do tomorrow. The washing machine was a trifle idiosyncratic and may need to be shot soon, but everything worked. The beds were comfortable. The architecture is not entirely uniform, but that contributes to the holiday house atmosphere. The weather was fine, so we did not have to test the heating and cannot comment on that. Badminton in the garden was a high point with the children (you might bring some shuttlecocks as we wore them all out).
Joyce was very kind and helpful, and understood the complications of coming from the other side of the world.
We took a train from Paris to Rennes and then a car, which worked well (navigation was easy, simple directions, double highway all the way, although Rennes itself needs a bit of map reading). The car was necessary - to get there, for supermarket shopping, and for touring. There is a small general store a short walk along the road into town and all the usual shops and bars and restaurants in the town, so you can ignore the car for a day or two if you want to. The English tour of the Chateau is worth doing, and for a bit of walking (or jogging if you must), the tow path is ideal - it goes for miles in both directions and mostly you have it pretty much to yourself.
We would certainly recommend the cottage to friends, both for its relaxing and unpretentious atmosphere, and for the welcome. Indeed, we chose it ahead of its final rival on our short list because Joyce sent such a friendly response to our first enquiry. We would happily stay there again.
I am not quite sure why the washing decided to misbehave that particular week as it has been on its best behaviour for subsequent guests and indeed for myself when I used it. I will be keeping a close eye on it and it will get its marching orders if it plays up again!
Gezellige woning in Josseline met hartelijke gastvrouw
Mooi huisje met gezellige tuin. Een vakantie op zijn Frans is de omschrijving die het van ons meekrijgt. Het huis is goed uitgerust, alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig. Hartelijk onthaal en de nodige info. We hebben een heel goed en rustig verblijf gehad. Joyce helpt je indien je vragen hebt en staat steeds voor je klaar. Wel voor mensen die van dieren houden. Er zijn 2 honden en enkele katten aanwezig, deze dringen zich echter niet op. Ze gaven onze vakantie een extra warm entourage. Er is veel te zien en te doen in de omgeving, een auto is wel nodig. We waren er 14 dagen en hebben ons geen moment verveeld.
a very serene large garden, so quiet and restful,
outside gate to Canal, very pleasant walk to Josselin,
This gite is attached to a grand house, Joyce is really lovely lady
and helpful, if needed, otherwise leaves you in peace.
The gite is roomy, homely and has everything you need.
Very hot weather , so was outside till late. Four of us had a wonderful restful week, the location and area is beautiful.
The house was ideal for us with a great location and lovely atmosphere.
Joyce was very welcoming and we throroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautiful location.
Josselin cottage with access to towpath to town
The cottage was quirky, homely and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed the large garden, with direct access to the towpath into Josselin with its many restaurants and good weekly market. There is a good supermarket within five minutes easy drive for stocking up the large Miele fridge freezer. Joyce is a very nice lady who, whilst being on hand to help with any info required, did not intrude on our privacy at all. Her
three large, but friendly dozy dogs and three cats were, as we are animal lovers, a pleasure to have around. The dogs were confined to the front of the house and could hardly be bothered to get up to greet us, and the cats though friendly, were easily deterred. None of the animals ever came into the cottage.
We would comment on the one very adverse previous review that it was unduly harsh and unfair in our opinion.
We can't please all of the people all of the time, but I am very glad that we pleased you!
Great Gite, the photos definitely don't do this Gite justice. The rooms we're clean and comfortable, and the cottage kitchen is a delight with everything you could need and there was always hot water.The walled garden is a delight, in fact we spent most of our time here, as the weather was fantastic. The host Joyce was very friendly and her knowledge of the area was invaluable.. The walk into Josselin along the canal path was pleasure. Infact with the 3 beautiful cats it was almost home from home. We will be going back, sooner rather than later.
Thank you for a good review, you were a pleasure to have stay and our cats definitely miss you already! Hope to see you again if you stay with us or are passing through the area
