What you see is what you get, exactly as advertised. A lovely large clean house with all the facilities we needed, in a secluded countryside location, but only a short walk to the beach.
It has a wonderful garden, the ideal place to relax under the shade of the trees with a glass of wine at the end of the day.

For provisions, a E.Leclerc supermarket is only 5 mins drive away.

It's the perfect base to investigate this area of Finistere, and we would highly recommend the short drive to Pointe du Raz.

Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short, so hope to return again ourselves before too long.
We would highly recommend Ty Kerhuon.

The photos don't do the place justice. It's the best well equipped cottage we have stayed in. There is plenty of room all round especially the garden area. It's in a peaceful location yet minutes from the beach and supermarket by car. Everything works as it should, plenty of games knocking around. Chris and Anne seemed very friendly when they came round with clean bedding and towels. We really did have a great time. Very relaxing holiday and give this place 10/10.No complaints at all

An impressive house in a country setting that provided privacy and comfort; the large parkland-style garden was especially enjoyable. The surrounding countryside was quiet with the opportunity to walk several "circuits" that were well signed. The area is not known for sophisticated tourism but the coastal facilities were more than adequate and the beaches were delightful. The maritime museum at Douarnanez, the Pointe de Raz and the older part of the village of nearby Pont Croix were attractions that were particularly interesting and enjoyable. We were most grateful to the owner for the thoughtful offer of lightweight bedding during a period of hot weather.

A lovely property, spacious and equipped to a high standard.

Lots of amenities including wi-fi, hi-fi, large TV and boule games equipment provided.

Large garden in secluded spot and secure parking off-road.

Location for walking and access to local network of walking routes is good. A short distance to the Gare Maritime to take a ferry to the Isle Sein.

Owner Chris is helpful and replies to enquiries promptly.

Would thoroughly recommend this property which would accomodate 6 adults with ease.
