This country spot is what you’d call remote but not isolated: a scattering of houses, a bakery to walk to, and the glory of the Crozon peninsula a 20-minute drive. Whether you’re with friends or family, this is one sweet retreat from which to explore Brittany. Kervihan is a former merchant’s house, sturdily built with stone walls and slate-topped sills, and magnificent sand-blasted timbers that dominate the upstairs living space. At one end are two crisp sofas by the wood-burner; at the other, a beautiful snug kitchen; and between the two, a dining table in chatting reach of the cooking space.  What’s more, on warm days you can spill onto a decked balcony and eat in the sun. Clean lines, neutral colours, warm materials, a sense of space… this is no holiday-let filled with make-do. On the contrary, it feels like home the moment you arrive. The garden furniture is set out and ready, the wine’s on the table, the barbecue’s in place. There are three patios downstairs as each bedroom has one; bathrooms are white, stylish, and inviting, and the master room has its bathtub next to the bed (extremely à la mode!).

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Vanessa Roots

  • Riding: Nearby is the Riding School - Domaine de Meros. From here you can enjoy horse riding and all types of equestrian pursuits.
  • Canoeing: In nearby Chateuneuf du Faou waterside pursuits alongside the canal can be enjoyed including canoeing.
  • Walking: The Armorique Regional Park, is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is only a 15 minute drive north of the house. From here you can enjoy breathtaking views and amazing walks.
  • Coast/Beach: Kervihan is only a 20 minute drive west to the Crozon Peninsular. This is one of the most beautiful parts of the Breton coastline and boasts some of the longest, widest stretches of golden sands. Down at Pentrez Plage at St Nic are landyachts.
  • Five minutes in the car is Chateuneuf du Faou; with supermarkets, banks, shops, cafes and restaurants. There is also the Brest to Nante Canal with lovely bike rides or walks along the tow paths. Overlooking the canal is Chateau Trevarez, a medieval castle.
  • Or try Huelgoat, an unspoilt picturesque town situated on a lake with lovey restaurants and bars. But best of all is the Chaos de Rochers a jumble of large boulders to explore surrounded by trees and water feeding nto the lake. Its beautiful, quite unique!
