Idyllic Riverside Cottage in Brittany, France

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Saint-Thois, Chateauneuf du Faou, Finistere, Brittany
Stang Korvenn (an ancient Breton name) is a traditional stone built long house or 'longere' comprising a large farmhouse and this attached but separate Cottage, 'Gite du Vert Rivage' which sleeps up to 5 people in 2 bedrooms. The cottage, newly refurbished this year, is comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a cosy country holiday in a place that is very 'far from the madding crowds'. The rear of the house looks directly onto the lovely river Aulne as it sweeps peacefully by.

There is direct access from the secluded wooded gardens to the beautiful river (part of the-Nantes Brest canal), one of the best fishing spots you'll find anywhere. Being just off a quiet main road allows easy access to the wonderful empty roads of the region and dozens of places to explore within easy reach: t...

This was our second visit to Stang Korven and we were not disappointed. Bryan and Jilly are wonderful hosts. The setting is beautiful, the cottage was clean and tidy and had everything one could need. There is direct access to the canal from the garden...More

Perfect interim solution, while we searched, bought and secured our new home in Brittany, made more so by our hosts, Bryan and Jilly, who ensured we wanted for nothing. Perfect location in an ideal rural setting close to the picturesque town of Chateauneuf du Faou....More

About the neighbourhood
Less than 30 minutes from the beautiful mediaeval city of Quimper, the region capital, it makes an excellent base from which to explore this truly unspoilt and inspiring part of the world.

The roads in this part of Brittany are delightfully empty, even in the height of summer, as they sweep through the glorious rolling countryside, perfect for motorbikes (and open top sports cars and cyclists). We have a covered lean to where you can park your Harley(s) or Ducati or whatever - and a lockable barn for bicycles.

Public transport is virtually non-existent, so your own independent transport is advised. There are excellent cycle routes all over Brittany and the 300+ kilometre cycle path along the Nantes Brest canal passes the house, so ideal for a cycling holiday. Plenty of room to park...
Getting around
A car or motorbike or bicycle is a must as there is no public transport here.
