About ALISON FISHER
Moved to Tavistock in 2012 from Bristol having worked in the NHS as a ward sister. Carl was a landscape gardener and now we have our own small business selling french sandals in the Pannier market and at some shows. Plymouth is our nearest port to travel to France which is very convenient and so easy to pop over We are keen walkers and cyclists and are enjoying our change in lifestyle
ALISON FISHER purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why ALISON FISHER chose Lizio
This cottage is a romantic little retreat and ideal for a couple or a small family. It's very rural and peaceful and an ideal spot for getting away from it all. This property is easy to drive to from the ports and set in beautiful Breton countryside. 30 mins drive from the beaches as the summers are long and weather generally better than in England. There are many festivals in this area and Lizio is known for its 'petite cite de character' and local artists. We love the peace and tranquillity.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is real Brittany with a slow pace of life. There are many walks and love putting the fold up bikes in the car to cycle along the Nantes-Brest canal. The 2 bikes are available for visitors to use. This cottage has everything you need to enjoy your holiday including a picnic rucksack! The cottage has a wood burner for the cool evenings with plenty of wood available at no extra cost

Perfect for two adults and two dogs
This was our third holiday in Brittany and probably the best. The weather was superb, the property a very good standard with everything you required for inside and outside living. The owners couldn’t do enough to make our stay perfect, even offering to contact the vets.
The Nante Brest Canal became the focal point of our travels, being perfect for dog walking and accessing little villages. We would definitely return!
Thank you for your lovely comments and leaving the cottage so clean and tidy.
Great little cottage with a very limited kitchen
A delightful little cottage in a very quiet little hamlet; the only downside we found, since we like to take advantage of the great local produce, was that the kitchen facilities, as well as being limited to two hobs and a small oven, were extremely difficult to use - the kitchen is inside a cupboard, very difficult to access and almost impossible to see what you're doing (there was a battery powered light unit in the cupboard, but it didn't work).
So sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our kitchen facilities which the 2 ring hob and small oven / grill are clearly described on the Homeaway website. The additional lighting is battery operated with plenty of spare batteries provided but we are not there to change them when need replacing.This is the first negative comment we have had about our well equipped kitchen and all of our guests have it quite clever and functional due to size of area available.
Hope you had an enjoyable holiday in Brittany.
Ideal for Relaxing Holiday for Two
Pretty cottage very thoughtfully and carefully converted. Well maintained and comfortable with plenty of essential items, including large CD collection. Quirky kitchen is in a cupboard, although designed for minimal cooking. Small garden ideal for eating and relaxing. Folding bikes were perfect for cycling along the canal - a real bonus. Lots of villages in the area to visit and explore.
Many thanks for staying at our cottage and so pleased you enjoyed it.
Good cosy gite with everything you need and more!
Near canal with added bonus of folding bikes!
Thank you so much for looking after our gite and so pleased you enjoyed using the bikes on the canal.
Hope you had a safe journey home.
Well equipped cosy cottage in beautiful area, folding bikes provided.
The cottage is really well equipped, everything is clean the bed is comfy with lovely linen. The folding bikes are easy to use and put in the car. The area has great cycling routes along the canal or voie verte for ease or small roads and little villages more challenging.
The owner provided lots of information about he area which we found really useful, good places to walk, cycle, eat and visit. Coast less than an hour away
Thank you for review.It was a pleasure having you both to stay and so pleased you found all of the information provided useful.
What a little gem!
This gite is extremely homely and well equipped, complete with folding bikes (I was tempted but the weather was rather variable). It is a perfect base for touring the area. We visited Lorient, Quiberon, Vannes and La Roche Bernard, as well as lots of the villages in between, and our two dogs enjoyed many walks along the Nantes-Brest canal. I would certainly recommend it to all who want a quiet country retreat.
Thank you for the lovely review and so pleased you enjoyed our little house.
