Comfortable, cosy cottage at Lennon,
Finistere. Enjoy the best of both worlds! This cottage nestles in
the beautiful Breton countryside, yet just a short drive from the
historical City of Quimper with its mixture of friendly welcoming
cafés and crêperies to its modern shops and hypermarkets. If you prefer
the sea, then drive 17 miles and come to the rugged coastline with
its sandy beaches of the Western coast where you can enjoy the tranquility
of a quiet beach or the excitement of a bustling harbour.
Lennon is an excellent base for exploring
Brittany and within easy driving distance of many villages and large
towns. Places within easy driving also include Benodet, Il Tudy; Pont
Aven is a must for its paintings, architecture and side street cafés.
Local shops are within a five minute drive at Chateauneuf-du-Faou
(street Market Wednesdays) and Pleyben.
Activities include cycling and there are
a number of cycle routes in the area, however, as most roads and tracks
are so quiet, you can generally cycle most places in safety. A short
spin to the boulangerie in Pleyben is recommended. There are good
local walks and maps in the cottage with some ideas for local routes.
There are many leaflets also on the local attractions in the area.
Good restaurants at Plouneves Du Faou (Louie’s) and at Chateauneuf-du-Faou
For the angler, Chateaulin is only 10 miles
away, where the River Aulne ranks number one in the whole of France
for salmon fishing. Other species of fish also provide good sport.
The local tackle shop at Chateaulin can provide temporary licenses
and is a wealth of information on the local beats.
Nearest ferry port (Roscoff)
This idyllic cottage
makes a perfect holiday retreat at any time of year.
