Ty Louisette has everything you could wish for as a home away from home. The Gite is located in a quiet rural hamlet but is a short drive from Pontivy with all the amenities a large town has to offer. The Gite itself is less than a minute's walk from the Nantes-Brest canal with its towpaths to explore and fishing permits are easily available.
