The
Experience

The setting is superb: open views over sloping fields, rippling grass in summer, the breeze hinting at the sea, and huge skies. Plomodiern is a mile away, the beach is 25 minutes down the path – this is a fabulous place for a family. You approach down a short country driveway that splits into two, each side leading to a gîte. Yours, the largest, is furnished in modest Breton style, its front door opening directly into the sitting room. Find a two-seater sofa on a new-tiled floor, dark wood furniture and a huge fireplace (logs generously provided), and the lovely scent of woodsmoke lingering in the air. Down a corridor is the kitchen, simple but with all mod cons (from dishwasher to coffee maker); up under the eaves are the bedrooms, and a landing for an extra bed. The ground-floor bathroom, with its walls of polished cement and walk-in shower, is super-duper modern. A mecca for paragliders and walkers, Brittany’s only mountain is a hop away, and Douarnenez is famous for its regattas. After eating and stocking up in Plomodiern (there’s a great crêperie), return to a cider on the patio… and the views.

Reviews

This is a lovely well equipped house in a beautiful setting with fields rolling down to the sea, The local beaches are spectacular and not at all busy with wonderful fresh seafood and there is a Michelin starred restaurant near the house. Best of all is the wildlife in the local area, red squirrels, coypus, kingfishers and all kinds of birds and lizards and wonderful boat trips to see dolphins. Agnes really cares about her guests and ensured there was a wonderful selection of local information about walking and wildlife, We loved every minute.
