This was the fourth visit and it just keeps getting better each time - and the first time was brilliant! The cottage is small, cosy, traditional, well appointed and you just feel at home the moment you walk in. The information packs inside are very helpful, and a quick look in the visitors` book lets you know there have been very many satisfied customers, a lot of them repeat visitors. The whole location is beautifully kept, quiet, and in a hamlet that makes no attempt to be anything but French. If real France is what you,re looking for, look no further. There are bikes on site, just help yourself, a laundry room and each of the four properties has its own private garden if you want your meal outside (you will) or a quiet day. There is so much to see locally either by cycle or just walking, but within easy reach by car are towns, villages, markets, restaurants, the coast, swimming lakes - put simply, however long your holiday, you will run out of time before you run out of things to do, rain OR shine! Maria and Tony, the owners and your hosts, are welcoming, friendly and always on hand and willing to give advice if requested. That said, they have a gift for being circumspect - they are always on hand but hardly ever seen while managing to make you feel welcome and ensuring your stay is perfect. Its an art form and they are to be congratulated for the balance that makes the place so different from others. The property would suit those looking for a quiet holiday, or those who seek more as it is all within easy distance, couples or those with children old young or in between. It is a place that effortlessly provides you a wonderful platform for you to make the holiday whatever you want it to be. In a word - fantastic!

We have stayed for a week at Walnut cottage almost every year for the last 15 years, and every time we cannot believe how wonderfully relaxing it is to stay in this part of Brittany. In the past we have driven there, but this time cycled from Roscoff - four easy days cycling on very quiet roads. From the moment you arrive, to a very friendly greeting from Tony & Maria, the cottage and large private garden tell you the week is going to be a great relaxing break. The cottage itself is well equipped with plenty of room for 4 people. It always seems to be warm and sunny for us (weve stayed in April, May and September), but the wood burner means that even if the weather turns colder you can stay warm indoors. The private garden is very quiet, and with the deckchairs provided allows you to catch up on those unread books before firing up the barbeque ! At night the absence of street lighting lets you star gaze in absolute wonderment. Paimbu is a very quiet hamlet, but shops, supermarkets, swimming pools are all close at hand beaches and a wide selec tion of places to visit ( with or without children) are a relatively short drive away. Alternatively, just use the bicycles available for free to explore the local area including a route along the nearby river. Tony & Maria live on site and are always around to help with any queries or advice on places to visit - nothing is too much trouble for them it seems! So, if you want a chance to escape the hurly burly of the daily grind, then Paimbu is THE place to find peace and quiet we promise you wont be disappointed.
