Brittany holiday cottages with pool

While the UK has been covered in snow and suffering from the coldest March since 1962 here at the Brittany holiday cottages with pool we have enjoyed some lovely warm sunny days at the end of March.



I am always asked what the weather is like during April or May in Brittany and I have been here now for 7 years and have always enjoyed those months as they always seem to offer loads of sunny days that allow you to obtain an early tan.

The evenings can still be cold in April but guest staying in La Forge get the best of both worlds, sun bathing during the day and a nice log fire to keep you warm in the evenings.

La Forge has a wonderful log burner that quickly heats up the holiday cottage.

Brittany holiday cottages with heated pool

With our new fitness regime started this week, Naomi and I decided to take a long walk from the Brittany holiday cottages with heated pool and followed the river Tarun upstream from the cottages.

On our way back I was surprised to see this new stretch of the river because it was always hidden from the road above. At one point I discovered a streem merging with the river and it looked like an absoulute fantastic place to fish.

Every year several guest staying at either La Forge or La Veille Maison are keen fisherman and love the opportunity to spend an hour or two in the afternoon or evening after a day out trying there luck for the wild trout that run on the Tarun.

I will take some pictures later in the week and post this new stretch of the river. For a video of the river just 100 meters from the holiday cottages:

Brittany holiday cottages with heated pool

How time flies at the Brittany holiday cottages with heated pool it was a year ago that Naomi took the plunge into the swimming pool on the first day it was opened. It was only 9 degrees and I would not let her feel the water temperature before she jumped in. Its been my most successful you tube video with 82,796 views over the year.


For guest staying at the Brittany holiday cottages La Forge and La Veille Maison I promise the water will be warmer....lol

Brittany holiday cottages with heated pool

With an early start today at the Brittany holiday cottages with heated pool we worked in the garden in just shorts and t-shorts while on the news we hear the UK is being covered in snow...just shows what a few hundred miles south makes with regards to better weather.

Just stopped for an alfresco lunch on the terrace of La Veille Maison.

I am often asked what is the weather like in Brittany and my answer is always the same, as you know Cornwall and Devon always seem to have slightly better weather than the rest of the UK then we in the Morbihan region of southern Brittany enjoy slightly better weather than Cornwall and Devon, with warmer winters and more sunny warm days in the spring and summer.

April seems to be the undiscovered month for most British to take a holiday in Brittany yet April historically is always a wonderful month for some early sun. I have to date enjoyed 7 Aprils in Brittany and so far every April has had at least 3 out of 4 weeks enabling sun bathing.

The swimming pool is open and heated for April and guest staying in La Forge during April enjoy private use of the swimming pool and for the first 3 weeks of May.



La Veille Maison is scheduled to be available from 25th May this year but if there is someone wishing to book the holiday cottage earlier it will be made available from 18th May.

Brittany holiday cottages with heated pool

Today at the Brittany holiday cottages with heated pool we set our alarm clocks to rise in order to get to Hennebont for its Thursday morning market, but alas Naomi was not feeling well today so we will go next week.

Its possible to visit a lively market every day of the week in the surrounding area  of the Brittany holiday cottages La Forge and La Veille maison and I am always at hand to advice guest where and when to go or they can find within the cottages all the information within the welcome pack.

To safe time and energy and for guest not to miss any special events going on during there holiday I always raid the local tourist offices and grab all the media for the year.

Buying the chickens for children to interact with at the Brittany holiday cottage with heated swimming pool has been a great success.
