"isogashisa mo hitoyasumi to itta tokoro da"
The "to itta tokoro da" part is explained in the textbook you got the phrase from.
I agree with @user18597 's reading. One thing you can try is substituting another valid particle like は or が for も, and rereading it:
The phrase 〜といった can be thought of as a larger group, namely, （こ・そ・あ・ど）ういった.
Then all you have to do is combine that with 〜ところだ, and you can put the sentence together.
