“Relaxing and peaceful home from home.”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

Hollen is situated on the edge of a small village. It has a large garden which is not overlooked and it is a wonderful space to sit and listen to the birdsong. Locally there are way marked paths through the countryside, although not always well marked, it is possible to walk on the roads as it is so quiet. The house itself is well equipped and has everything that is needed. The new extension has large windows and views onto the garden so even in the rain it has a connection with the outside. It isn't that far to drive to the coast. There are two large supermarkets at Chateauneuf Du Faou, about a ten minute drive.

Lovely house with modern facilities and spacious living accommodation for all the family. Wildlife we saw/heard in the garden during our stay includes barn owl, green woodpecker, frog and rabbits. Great location for exploring all of south west Brittany. Fantastic water park Pli-Jadour 25 minutes drive from the property - great value for money, only 17euros for day for family of four. Lovely beaches at Concarneau and great surfing body-boarding beach at Pointe du van and a beautiful village with lovely creperie and gift shops called Locronan only 35 minutes drive away. Fantastic holiday and a fabulous holiday home in a quiet village setting - just what we needed! Thank you!

“Peace and Quiet”
Reviewed October 5, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

An exceedingly well equipped gite! A home from home.
The peace and quiet was much appreciated and we enjoyed watching the Jays,Green Woodpeckers and rabbits on the considerable lawns. Having a second sitting room (sunny in the mornings) meant a quiet place to read or enjoy a cup of tea or coffee.
The canal side walks are great ( no hills!!) and ideal if you want to cycle. It was good to have a shop in the village to purchase a croissant or baguette and other groceries. The two supermarkets in Chateauneuf du Faou were excellent.
All in all a great find and highly recommended.

A good property for up to 7 people. Spacious and well equipped. Owners very helpful and easy to communicate with. Nice garden and bbq area. Great and quiet surroundings. Downside - a long way from the sea.

Six of us stayed for 2 weeks at Hollen and we all had a fantastic holiday. The house is clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped - everything you need is here. There is an enormous garden surrounding the house, making it very private, and this was great for the kids who spent exploring and playing. BBQs on the patio on warm sunny evenings are a particular fond memory of our stay. The local area is picturesque and quiet and is the perfect place for a relaxing break. If you enjoy cycling, like us, the Nantes-Breast canal is very close and offers miles of safe bike paths in an idyllic setting and you can discover the many small towns that the canal passes through. It was great cycling to Châteauneuf-du-Faou on market days and enjoy freshly made, and incredibly cheap, crepes and galettes. There's also a great choice of coastal destinations that are about a 1 - 1.5 hour drive. I would highly recommend visiting the town of Kerlouan - there are some beautiful and quiet beaches around this area and the kids had a great time finding crabs and small fishes in all the rock pools.
