ACCOMMODATES 10 IF BOOKED TOGETHER WITH NEIGHBOURING 'PEBBLES'

Driftwood is situated at Kergalet, a sleepy hamlet just outside Crozon. 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 2 miles away. Slightly further afield is enchanting Camaret-Sur-Mer with numerous restaurants, bars and cafes. Camaret is also famous for its artists' quarter and UNESCO listed fort & church on the cob.

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 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.

An excellent gite, and because we took neighbouring gite Pebbles that accommodates 2 adults and 2 small children, we had a fab family week.
Driftwood is beautifully decorated, and the upside down nature of it is really clever. Bedrooms are roomy and light, and the loo/shower is modern. Upstairs is a very well equipped kitchen & attractive sitting room. Outside, the terrace is wonderful to sit out on, and catches the sun all day long. The shared garden with BBQ is lovely, and the kids enjoyed the swing and running around.
The position on the legendary peninsular could not be bettered, and we enjoyed a new sandy beach every day. Croissants from Lanveoc have to be the biggest and best in the world, and the restaurant at cute Le Fret is first class.
All round, a wonderful gite in a fabulous location.
