The
Experience

Down the country driveway that splits into two (each leading to a gîte) is a sweet little hideaway, a stone cottage for two (and a child). There’s a gravelled area outside with a strip of lawn and a terrace for sunsets, and views to the Pointe du Raz, Brittany’s Land’s End… you can see the Ile de Sein on a good day. The area is a nature lover’s paradise, a wild landscape of beaches and sea, Cornwall as it used to be – all you’ll hear are the gulls and the birds. Step in to a fresh, open-plan and tile-floored space: a kitchen compact, sunny and bright, with a fridge, microwave and oven, and a sitting room with a vast open fireplace (sheer delight on a dark windy night). Find deep sills and upright timbers, a little sofa, wicker chairs, the original staircase. Up to the mezzanine to find a single bed, then into the bedroom, captivating, charming, a romantic surprise under white sloping walls; the bathroom (super chic) is downstairs. You’ll find shops and a Friday market in Plomodiern (one mile), and an outstanding restaurant, L’Auberge des Glazicks, whose young chef is a master of ‘terre et mer’ cuisine – don’t miss it!

Reviews

We had a perfect week here in the middle of a 3 week driving holiday. Agnes was very helpful from the first enquiry right through to welcoming us on arrival -with a lovely gift of Breton cider and biscuits :) Everything was exactly as described, very clean and well equipped, we could fault nothing. Although there is another detached gite next door we were totally unaware of them as the gardens face in opposite directions. The situation is perfect to visit many sights, and Pentrez plage is a very short drive away. We wouldn't hesitate to return, thank you Agnes!
