“Fantastic hosts and great gite in a location both accessible and peaceful”
Reviewed 29 January 2013 for a stay in June 2012

Down a quiet lane just outside the village of La Chapelle-Neuve, which is big enough to support a bakers and not far from the pleasant market town of Baud, are two lovely Gites (we stayed in Chene), next door to the owners property.
The gites are recently converted and well looked after and each has their own small garden plus use of the larger front garden. They had everything we needed in them and were a wonderful place to stay. The wi-fi connection was useful, allowing us to adapt our plans according to the weather.
Whilst a little way inland the local area has interesting attractions and being situated about 10 minutes from the N24 it is quick to access other areas, including various stretches of coast. Carnac (we liked the west beach, fairly quiet but not remote), Quiberon, St Philibert etc. were all visited for beach days. Other good days were the nearby historic towns of Josselin and Pontivy, the Flore submarine and base at Lorient (we were lucky enough to be there whilst the round the world yacht race was in), the fishing port of Locmariaquer and the boat trip around the Gulf from there. A bit further afield but highly recommended is Branfere zoo, which is more like a walking safari park (and adults as well as children love the Le Parcabout, you'll have to look it up!). At the end of each day it was nice to come back to our comfortable and peaceful Gite.
Finally, to turn this from a very good Gite to a great Gite were the welcoming and helpful hosts. Andrew and Lyndsey were very helpful without being intruding and gave us lots of helpful tips on places we might want to go to and our friendly discussions with them helped make the holiday.
We rarely go back to the same area twice but we may make an exception in a year or two if we can book here again.

“Our stay at Clistivan brought to life the delights of Brittany that we had hoped for when we left Australia.”
Reviewed 22 December 2012 for a stay in May 2012

When planning our holiday we wanted stay in the French countryside and to be within easy striking distance of many of the sights of Morbihan in particular, and Brittany in general. "Clistivan" provided this base "in spades"!! Lyndsey and Andrew extended themselves to assist us but were not intrusive. Our gite was absolutely fabulous and all we had sought.
In summary, "Clistivan" is a conveniently, well equipped gite in the French countryside, complete with extremely helpful owners.
Margaret & I will be happy to provide further comment should a reader enquire.

“Excellent gite in a quiet location”
Reviewed 15 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The gite was superbly equipped and the owners, Lindsey & Andrew, living in the same building (split in 3), were always friendly and helpful.
Situated a little way out from a village on a minor road, it was impressively quiet. We drove some distance in order to visit the historic towns in each direction. We had our own bikes and were able to avoid hills by cycling on canal and riverside paths.

Management Response

Thanks for your review, we're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Sorry about the lack of one sun-lounger, unfortunately it was broken late in the season and we weren't able to replace it. But new loungers will be in place for April 2013! We will also provide a night light for the landing, we didn't realize it was a problem, thanks for your feedback.
