Rustique Cottage, a well equipped stone built cottage, ideal for 2 people to get away from the madness and noise of everyday life. All mod cons, are fitted (TV/DVD, dishwasher, washing machine, BBQ etc) with a swimming pool and bicycles for use. The cottage is one of three on the site and is run by the hosts Mike and Clare, a British couple who could not be more welcoming. The cottage is set in a small hamlet about 4 miles from the pretty town of Malestroit, and at night you could hear a pin drop ! A car is recommended as most shops and restaurants are not within walking distance. Clare also offers Reiki, massage and a range of beauty treatments for guests. The city of Vannes and the coast is about 20 mins away. There is WIFI but internet access is a bit slow.

From the first minute we arrived at woodpecker cottage and meeting Mike and Clare we were made to feel most welcome.Our first impression of the gite was quaint and very picturesque and as we proceeded to the the rear of the cottage it opened out to a lovely pool and garden. Clare and Mike are a lovely couple who will go out of their way to make your holiday perfect with the added therapies that Clare provides ,this makes it a perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries. I had the most wonderful Rakie treatment but this is just one of many different treatments there is to offer. I cannot recommend Woodpecker cottage highly enough and will be certainly returning in the not to distant future.
