LE MYRTIL - Petits Papillons Rural Cottages
No price rise for 2016!
Jackie and Mike invite you to totally relax and unwind and experience Le Myrtil, a delightful 1 bedroom gite (cottage), part of Petits Papillons, and enjoy the peace and rural tranquillity of their early 19th century longere (long-house). Once a working farm it has been lovingly renovated and converted into three spacious, architect designed, deluxe, self catering holiday cottages. Each gite (cottage) features spacious, comfortable rooms, mostly en-suite bathrooms, exposed original timber and stone work, and views across the extensive gardens and rolling countryside.
PLEASE NOTE: If Le Myrtil appears unavailable for the week(s) you require please check La Lucine cottage, as this may be made available as a one bedroom cottage, at the same rate.
ALSO NOTE - We have no hidden extras. Bed linen, towels and utilities included (summer time) plus a welcome pack of essentials - milk, tea, coffee etc.
We also offer home cooked cuisine (at an additional charge), using our own home grown fresh garden produce and free range eggs, which is highly recommended by previous guests.
If you are feeling slightly more energetic, then Petits Papillons is well located for walking and cycling in the beautiful surrounding countryside and nearby Nantes-Brest canal, or a short drive from delightful chateaux and market towns, historic sites and the beaches of southern Brittany and the unique Gulf of Morbihan.
Within walking/cycling distance are three or four pretty country villages with bars/tabacs/restaurants, boulangeries, charcuteries and a short drive away are small towns with more restaurants, local markets and supermarkets.
Local activities include: walking; cycling (we have cycles for hire); horse riding (2 stables nearby); golf (3 courses within 40 mins drive); boating; fishing, historic buildings and ancient Celtic sites.

Located in pleasant countryside, in quiet tucked away location but with villages and small towns with shops and restaurants close by. Well maintained and confortable cottage with pleasant patio and view over gardens and fields in a small group of three with plenty of parking space. The house itself was of good size for a couple being a barn conversion with spacious double bedroom and ensuite upstairs and pleasant open plan living area with dining area and kitchen area, looking out onto a patio. Plenty to see and do in the area - very unspoilt.

fantastic base for our windsurfing and mountain biking, roads and lanes surrounding the cottage were empty and safe with plenty of offroad adventures round Lizio, and great historic town of Josselin within easy riding, Windsurfed on the atlantic. and to return to Le Myrtil to relax and chill made our break perfect, when we return we will return here.
