We had everything we needed for a relaxing and interesting holiday in rural Brittany. The house and garden are charming and comfortable. Perfect area for a quiet break.

“Sheer tranquility”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We have just returned for a 10 night stay at La Petite Maison and we thoroughly recommend the property - it is the most tranquil of locations. Malcolm and Penny are just delightful, the location has wonderful access to the Intermarche and points of interest. The property has everything you need and you really don't want for anything more. The most attractive part of it all is the simplicity of it all - we shall certainly aim to return .

“Life just doesn't get this good !”

My wife and I have just returned from this little spot in France and having travelled around Europe in previous years, we have never before felt such a yearning to go back.
La Petite Maison is small and cosy. On our first night we slept in the most comfortable bed and in the morning were treated to the sound of nature all around us. Over a simple breakfast we watched as swallows performed their aerobatics above the garden and then we walked a while in the quietest lanes and beautiful countryside. This is a perfect place for a couple who seek relaxation or a base to explore the most beautiful part of Brittany.
The Gite is lovely and our hosts Malcolm and Penny, so helpful and accommodating. When you relax this much it is very hard to understand why we live the busy lives we lead.

Plenty of places to visit from this comfortable, well situated small cottage.
In fact it was bigger than the photos lead you believe.
Helpful owner . Plenty of lovely short walks in Huelgoat.

“Lovely stay in Brittany”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We spent 8 nights at La Petite Maison near Huelgoat in Finistere, Brittany. We loved it--it is a charming renovated gite in a tiny farming hamlet in the countryside. We used it as a base to drive all over northern and southern Finistere exploring--we went to the Pink Granite coast, to the Cotes d"Armor, to the Crozon peninsula, to Concarneau and Quimper, and to the coast near Pte. St. Mathieu.
Malcolm is a wonderful host--very welcoming, helpful and friendly. He had many good suggestions on things to see, and he recommended La Mirabelle restaurant in Huelgoat that was a highlight of our trip.
The space is perfect for a couple. We cooked several meals in the well-equipped kitchen. The bed is very comfortable as other reviewers have said but even more restful is the complete quiet of the area.
Plan on having a navigation unit in your car--this would be difficult to find without it.
We would love to return.

“A lovely relaxing base to explore this amazing and varied area from.”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at La Petite Maison for two weeks in April. The gite is light and airy, feels homely and has great facilities. The proprietor couldn't be more helpful and made us feel at home. This is a lovely quiet relaxing base from which to explore this amazing and varied area. The local town, Huelgoat, is only minutes away and is delightful, situated on a lake next to an ancient forest filled with extraordinary granite boulders. It is perfect for walking and we recommend a visit to the L'Autre Rive cafe/bookshop in the forest. The nearby Monts D'Arree and Lac de St Michel are also great for exploring. The town has a weekly market, good shops and friendly bars. This area is less than an hour from Roscoff but near enough to visit major attractions like the ancient stones at Carnac and wonderful mediaeval city of Quimper. We thoroughly recommend La Petite Maison
