About this property

Family Gite Close to Sandy Beaches. This cottage/gite is in a coastal setting.

Kerarhun is situated amidst cultivated fields by the D76 between Plougasnou and Lanmeur. The accomodation consists of an open plan living/dining/kitchen area on the ground floor, with an open turning staircase to the 2 bedrooms, one a mezzanine with 2 single childrens beds the other room a doublebed. There is a bathroom with toilet between the two. This gite is suitable for families consisting of no more than two adults and two children +baby.

Kerarhun gite sits in a garden enclosed by hedges. It has a parking area for one car. Situated 2 minutes drive from the unspoilt sandy beach, St Jean du Doigt is a tranquil little village, 40 minutes from Roscoff. The ancient church of St Jean du Doigt with its famous fountain and finger of St John, dominates the village centre. This area of Brittany is relatively undiscovered as yet and has a beautiful rugged coastline with lots of hidden sandy coves.

Kerarhun gite is an old stone Breton cottage dating from the early 1800s, situated amidst cultivated fields in the commune of St. Jean du Doigt.
The wooden floored open plan ground floor is equipped with a fitted corner kitchen and dining area at one end, and seating around an open-flame wood burner at the other.
A narrow, open tread turning staircase bring you to the first bright first floor with one double bedroom and one twin bedroom (these beds cannot be pushed together) at either end, and bathroom/toilet between.

Garden area to the front and rear with garden furniture and bbq to enjoy the summer.

Kerarhun gite has a Friday changeover but I can be flexible out of season.
