Brittany Holiday Cottage with Pool

Just 20 minutes away from the Brittany holiday cottage with pool is the lovely town of Hennebont. It is situated about ten miles from the mouth of the Blavet, which divides it into two parts: the Ville Close, the medieval walled town, and the 17th century Ville Neuve on the left bank and the oldest site: the Vieille Ville on the right. The old walled town (Ville Close) still has traces of its 13th-15th century ramparts as well as a large, fortified 15th century gatehouse complete with double-doors with drawbridge slots (known as the Porte du Broƫrec.)

I popped down to the town today to see how good the Thursday market was after guest of La Forge had said how good it was. I did enjoy the market but for me the best market is still at Auray and the old port of St Goustan which is so hard to beat for a location to enjoy a coffee and crepe.

The enclosed picture was of the old gatehouse at Hennebont.
There are so many great places to visit while staying at the Brittany holiday cottage with pool to ensure a great holiday.
