About this property

Ecurie, Gite with Shared Heated Pool. This cottage/gite is in a coastal setting.

Le Rhun, a former Breton cider farm, now offers relaxing holidays like they used to be in five unique holiday gites on the beautiful Crozon Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty with many sites of historic and cultural interest and stunning beaches.  Whether you’re looking for accommodation for a couple, a family or a big get-together Le Rhun offers tranquil surroundings, 40 acres of farmland and countryside, lots to do and a safe environment for children to explore.  
Ecurie, a former stable offers comfortable accommodation for 4 people. Although the cart horse is long gone the old hayrack still sits in the corner of the open plan living area alongside the feature wood burner.  The open-plan salon with exposed stone-work and beams has 2 comfortable sofas and a dining area.   French doors open onto the patio with wooden furniture and stone-built barbecue which overlooks the inner courtyard where the ancient cider press is set in a seating area.
The kitchen area houses a gas cooker, microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and well-equipped kitchen cupboards.  The open tread pine staircase leads up to a charming double bedroom to the right and a twin bedded room to the left with a wooden chest full of interesting toys and games.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Lesley Bunney

We moved here in 2005, after living abroad for a number of years. We fell in love with the Presqu'ile and especially the magic of Le Rhun. We love the peace, the space, and the big open skies here. We wanted to share the magic of our quirky and homely gites, and are always creating new places for children and grown ups of all ages to explore and play.

The Owner Recommends

Local villages.

Argol village is a 15 minute walk away and boasts a boulangerie, La Poste, 2 small bars, a tabac and creperie as well as a museum of country crafts!
Telgruc-sur-mer is 5 kilometres away and also has a bank, small supermarket, general store and road drops down onto a magnificent sandy beach.

Nearby towns.

Crozon - a picturesque town with a beautiful market square, supermarkets, artisan bakers and boucherie/charcuterie. On alternate Wednesdays there is a morning market snaking from the square, through the narrow streets, selling hand made crafts, local fresh food, cheeses, seafood and Brittany hot food delicacies.
Morgat - a small seaside town that makes us think of Balamory with its brightly coloured buildings hugging the coastline and many yachts moored in the harbour. The beach and harbour offer you the chance to hire kayaks, bikes, go diving, go on boat trips into the caves or soak up the sun at one of the many small creperies and bars along the sea front. For six weeks at the height of summer the streets come alive as the sun sets with 'Mardi Morgat' - a Tuesday night street festival of live bands strolling along the sea front and performing on the stage in the square, with families and friends dancing in the street into the early hours or perusing the unusual gifts at the craft market!
Camaret - A harbour town with numerous waterside restaurants with great fresh fish and seafood. A firm favourite for surfers as it is surrounded by surfing beaches and beautiful clifftop walks.
Locronan - One of France's best kept villages with higgledy-piggledy houses, cobbled streets, beautiful creperies, quirky shops, atmospheric church, and our personal favourite - a magnificent hand made chocolate shop.
Quimper - Fascinating medieval city with beautiful church, art gallery, market hall, timbered buildings, amazing merry-go-round and interesting little shops including one selling delicious, elfin the mouth macaroons in 24 flavours presented to you in exquisitely wrapped boxes.

Beaches

There are 10+ beaches on the presquile, most within 20 minutes drive. The closest (and our favourite) is Trez Bellec in Telgruc-Sur-Mer, 5km away (5 minutes in the car). There are lots of places to hire Kayaks, catamarans, sand karts, to name but a few of the activities. But best of all there are many wide open, uncrowded, sandy beaches to choose from.

Location and activities

There is a wealth of things to do on the Presqu-ile de Crozon. From walking, cycling, surfing, sailing, museums, national parkland, a maze, Parc Accrobranche (tree climbing and paintballing) beautiful local markets, La Maison du Cidre, La Musée Vivants des Vieux Métiers, Le Musée du Mémorial de la Bataille de l'Atlantique, a number of sites of historic interest including the standing stones at Camert-Sur-Mer. Something to please everyone...

Lovely property set amid beautiful grounds. Children had a brilliant time - the whole place was geared up for children to be able to play outside safely. The owners were really helpful and the location was excellent for exploring the many different beaches.

This was a beautiful and lovely place to stay perfect for our family where you can relax in your gite whilst the children safely play with the vast array of child friendly toys and facilities. It was clean, quiet and very relaxing with friendly but unobtrusive hosts. The local amenities are bakeries, supermarkets, creperies and beaches basically but there is no need for more as there is a different beach to visit each day and if you are lucky like us, friendly fellow guests for the children to play with and adults to chat to on a rainy day in the communal areas. We loved the place and hope to return next year.

Just back from a very relaxing break at Le Rhun. Truly couldn’t say enough good things about it.. Lesley, Becks and all the gang were so welcoming and helpful.....from providing eco friendly fire lighters to endless toys and play areas for or two young kids, we didn’t want for anything. Argol was an easy stroll in the mornings for fresh bread and pastries and the Blue Rhino was an even shorter stroll for our wine in the evenings!

The pool and all facilities were spotless and very well maintained. The grounds were beautiful and teeming with bird life. Our little girl adored the fairy garden, pirate ship and forest walk and our little boy loved the sand pit and all the toys in the Barn. Regardless of the weather there’s load for kids to do.

Thanks so much for everything guys. No question, we’ll definitely be back.
