Castel Braz is a most unusual old house. It is beautifully decorated with works of art, some by the owner. It is so near the centre of Pont-Aven that you can hear the water rushing down the stream. Each room has a theme and is decorated with paintings to match that theme (as well as books in the bathroom)

Not surprised that this place seems to have received good reviews. The proprietors are warm and friendly but not overly so. The accommodation is clean and well equipped but it is the peculiar charm of Castel Braz that sets it apart from any other standard Chambres d'Hotes property.

This was a wonderful place to stay for a magical week in Pont-Aven! Helene and Jean-Louis were so warm and friendly and made me feel so welcome. The room was quite spacious, especially by "normal" European standards, and very clean. The towels were "scratchy" but only because they are line-dried in the wonderful Pont-Aven air--I grew up with line-dried towels... More

We were late booking so had to have the African 'suite' at 80 Euros. This is not a suite with a lounge area - this is a two-bedroomed, one bathroom suite, so if there are just 2 of you the extra bedroom is of no interest and shouldn't be charged extra for. They do not take credit cards and only... More
