ACCOMMODATES 10 IF BOOKED TOGETHER WITH NEIGHBOURING DRIFTWOOD

Pebbles is situated at Kergalet, a sleepy hamlet just outside Crozon and about six miles from Camaret-Sur-Mer. Our nearest village with bakers is Lanveoc about 1.5 miles, and the town of Crozon with supermarkets and shops, cafes, bars and restaurants is just two miles away. Slightly further afield is enchanting Camaret with numerous restaurants, bars and cafes. Camaret is also famous for its artists' quarter and fort and church on the breakwater.

The peninsula of Presqu'ile de Crozon measures 20 by 8 miles and is a national park. The scenery changes from towering cliffs at Point des Espangnois to beautiful sandy beaches which stretch for miles. There are numerous delightful walks in forests and moors, and about 100 miles of coastal footpath around the Presqu'ile to explore. The area is largely undiscovered as tourists tend to by-pass it on their way south.

7.6 / 10 PJP 10 July, 2014

Wonderful location as part of what was a traditional French Farm. Good parking and one under cover if requires. Good selection of outdoor furniture and reasonably sized gardens with BBQ so enjoying eating outside in the good weather is well catered for. Easy access to supermarket and bakery and not far from the best safe sandy beaches I have seen for a long time. Wonderful countryside and some great restaurants serving delicious seafood and crepes. Pebbles is small, bedrooms are cosy we liked them but be prepared to duck when getting into bed as you are up in the rafters, I am over 6 ft tall but didn't find it an issue. We loved our stay but feel that Pebbles could do with a bit of modernisation and better seating facilities in the combined living kitchen as not to comfortable if you were staying in in the evenings. Feel that its more suited for a couple albeit a family or 2 adults with a youngster would fit in nicely. There were just the two of us and we found the size quite adequate the weather being excellent we only used Pebbles for sleeping. The owner and their Manager could not have been more helpful and we received a wonderful welcome from the Manager upon arrival. All in all we had a terrific time.
