In the heart of Southern Brittany's beautiful countryside rest Vine and Wisteria Cottages. They are part of a small hamlet called Hevedic (meaning Little Sanctuary in Breton) within a conservation area, of which the peace and tranquility has hardly changed since the reign of Louis XIV. These beautiful stone cottages have breathtaking vaulted ceilings, highlighting wonderful beams and each cottage has a huge Breton fireplace at its heart. Discover at your leisure 1 acre garden complete with wood burning hot tub, a potager full of flowers, herbs and vegetables and many hidden corners to sit and relax. Hevedic Wood has many paths leading to the Blavet river and the small town of Quistinic can be reached this way if you do not wish to drive. A cycle/footpath runs beside the river passing through towns and hamlets to the coast in one direction or Pontivy in the other. This area is perfect for mountain biking, road cycling, trail running, kayaking and walking. Poul Fetan, the 16th Century Village of French Culture is 5 minutes walk away and makes for a perfect day out with costumed hosts re-inacting life here in the past and a tavern selling local ciders and beers and Breton meals.The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room fitted with a vanity sink unit with lighting and power point and WC. A twin bedroom has separate shower, vanity sink unit with lighting and power point and WC. Both bedrooms have vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. The lounge has a feature Breton fireplace with wood burning stove that heats radiators throughout the property, two sofas and a pine coffee table.

Thank you for this positive review of Wisteria Cottage at Blavet Forest Gites.
We are so pleased that everything you needed was provided in the cottage and that you enjoyed your time in the beautiful Brittany countryside. We were delighted to see how at home young William was and how much he found to enjoy in the garden and of course in the hot tub!
Well equipped and comfortable cottage in beautiful countryside. Attentive and helpful hosts.
Really enjoyed our stay in Wisteria Cottage. Well equipped and comfortable cottage - everything you need and up to date local information including maps. Garden gives secluded sitting out areas and a great wood burner hot tub. Local area is fantastic for road cycling. This part of Brittany is one big cycling park; quite lanes, interesting villages and towns, rural countryside and ... hills! Famous tdf climb at Mur de Bretagne can be included in a 60 mile loop. Local racing calendar is busy and we enjoyed seeing a local event. David and Linda were attentive hosts and couldn't do enough to help us get the most out of our stay.
We are very grateful for this generous and informative review which should be of interest to prospective guests. You made great use of the cycling opportunities and as you say this area has so much to offer for road cyclists and also for trail rides and of course walking and running. It is a great pleasure to welcome guests who enjoy the beautiful brittany countryside!
We hope to welcome you back in the future.
We only stayed for a long weekend .The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything that you would need. The garden was fab. Linda and David were the best. Would definitely recommend to anyone . Well done
Thank you so much for your positive comments which we much appreciate. We hope that next time you are in Brittany we may see you again.
Our second stay at the cottage and just as enjoyable. Beautiful quiet surroundings and a fantastic garden. The weather allowed us to enjoy the facilities and we had a chilled out time for 2 weeks. David and Linda were as welcoming as ever. Thank you!
It was great to see you again! Thank you for your generous comments which I am sure will help other travellers get an idea of what it is like to stay here with us. The wildlife which you enjoy has cointinuied to be a delight with foxes, deer, pine martins, woodpeckers, kingfishers and buzzards often spotted by guests on early evening walks.
Our second visit to our delightful Wisteria Cottage, David and Linda truly think of everything. The welcome hamper and hot tub are the highlights.
Perfect in every detail
The Gites are immaculately maintained and are situated in a perfect location to immerse yourself in total tranquillity as well as varied sightseeing.
The owners Dave & Linda are on site, friendly with lots of ideas to fill the days without being imposing.
The welcome basket is overly generous and a great start before the main holiday shop.
We stayed in Wysteria gite this year which is a two bedroom, two bathroom with a wood burning fire in the lounge.
The kitchen has all the facilities required to cook family meals with a spacious dining table. The lounge has two settees for end of day relaxing, sky box, dvd's and a bookcase full to the brim.
Upstairs the bedrooms are tastefully decorated, fluffy towels and robes with the addition of beach towels for use with the wood fired hot tub (perfect for relaxing under the stars)
The bedding is of high quality cotton, beds are very comfortable. Skylights in the bedrooms enabling you to look at the stars from the comfort of the bed.
The gites are perfectly situated in the countryside, a few minutes walk takes you to woodland and riverside walks. Also being within easy reach of Quistinic and Baud.
There are so many sightseeing options just a short drive away to suit all tastes.
The gites have plenty of maps and day trip ideas in the information booklet provided.
We visited last year for 1 week staying in the 1 bedroom Vine gite. We chose to return this year staying in the 2 bedroom Wysteria gite sharing the first week with friends.
We are already planning a return visit next year.
I cannot recommend these gites highly enough. Perfect for couples as well as family & friends. The Vine Cottage & Wysteria can be opened up via an adjoining door for larger groups.
The garden as well as being large and beautiful has a vegetable plot, a chicken coup which includes a few ducks as well.
The gites are located a few minutes to Poul Fetan which is a medieval village museum which makes for a perfect day out just a 5 minute walk away.
You will find these gites booked either individually or as a group to be a perfect home from home.
