Holiday Cottage in Pontrieux/Paimpol, Cotes d'Armor, Brittany, France
Le Pretre and Le Cure are two adjoining holiday cottages, situated within the one acre walled garden of a former presbytery in the tranquil Breton village of Treverec. The cottages were completely renovated in 2004/5 and to the highest standard.
Treverec is between the picturesque towns of Pontrieux (Petite Cite de Caractere) and Lanvollon, with their selection of restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets and weekly markets, and is ideally positioned for an enjoyable and relaxing holiday in the beautiful Cotes d'Armor region of Northern Brittany.
The area generally is renowned for its scenery and is popular with visitors for walking holidays, fishing, golf, horseriding, water sports and of course the beaches. There are many restaurants offering a wide selection of menus. The coast of Northern Brittany is renowned for its shellfish and a speciality of the region are buckwheat pancakes known as galettes, which are served with a variety of fillings.
Treverec is 15 minutes from the Goelo Coast, with its many seaside and harbour towns, such as Paimpol, Plouha, St Quay Portrieux, Binic, and Etables sur Mer, and 25 minutes from the Pink Granite Coast, famous for its beautiful islands and interesting rock formations. Both coastlines offer wonderful sandy beaches, numerous rock pools to explore and safe bathing.
For those interested in architecture, there are many historic places to visit nearby, such as the Abbaye de Beauport, the Chateau de la Roche Jagu, the cathedral town of Treguier and Lannion. For a relaxing day out take the ferry from Paimpol over to the beautiful Isle de Brehat which, because of its micro climate, has flowers blooming all year round and where no cars are allowed!
