The Owner Recommends

Carnac Town and Beach

Carnac is known throughout the world for its unique rows of ancient standing stones. The town is split into two areas: Carnac-Ville, where you’ll find the Museum of Prehistory, and Carnac-Plage, a family seaside resort with a state-of-the-art thalassotherapy centre. Oyster farming is big business.

Plage de Kerguelen

With fantastic views over the isle of Groix, Kerguelen beach, 1.6 km long, offers excellent water quality for swimming. It's also home to one of Europe’s biggest watersports centres where you can try a number of activities (sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding...) and watch competitions. With two lifeguard posts, this beach is very well supervised.

Vannes

The walled town of Vannes is without doubt one of Brittany’s most attractive sights and a must-visit on any trip to Morbihan. Wander around the well-preserved medieval streets before enjoying a harbour-side lunch then taking a boat trip around the gulf. Kids will love the aquarium and butterflies.

Rennes

The vibrant university city of Rennes, Brittany’s administrative capital, is worth a day or two of anyone’s time. Take a wander around the medieval streets of the picture-perfect old town and admire the impressive parliament building before relaxing in the Thabor gardens.

Hennebont

A towering 16th-century spire rockets up above the remaining medieval ramparts of Hennebont, an historic port at a strategic river-crossing on the Blavet, at the back of Lorient’s huge natural harbour. In the 19th century, industry arrived in town, plus an important stud farm championing the Breton horse.

Quiberon

Jutting out into the sea for 9 miles (14km) and just 72ft (22m) wide at its narrowest point, the Quiberon Peninsula is a tourist destination par excellence. With its rugged coastline, sweeping sandy beaches, fishing villages and rich cultural history, this beautiful area of Morbihan won’t disappoint.

Saint-Cado et la ria d'Etel

Half way between Lorient and Quiberon, the Étel river flows inland like an outstretched hand for 9 square miles. Its dangerous mouth has swallowed many a sailor and its town of the same name was once one France’s most important tuna fishing ports. These days it has plenty to interest visitors.

Au Bon Vieux Temps Sarl

Very nice crêperie in Baud. Friendly welcome by the owners, a very attentive, friendly and smiling staff. For gourmands do not hesitate to taste sweet and delicious crepes. Would highly recommend.

Kingoland

This is a fantastic place to visit, when we go to France we love searching for the smaller amusement parks and this is by far the best one we have found so far.

Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful time at La Faisane, Sam and Vicky were the perfect hosts with
plenty of information about local attractions including opening times
for the supermarkets, best beaches, boutiques, cycle routes and local patisseries. Vicky let us know about the local craft fair st Camore where we enjoyed a BBQ and watched local craftsman perform traditional skills including blacksmith, leatherwork, willow weaving, music and artisan bakery.
The gite was impeccable with extra finishing touches such as books, games and plenty of leaflets. The decor was home from home so you felt comfortable straightaway. It was also spotless with all the necessary equipment in the kitchen to ensure you didn't need to bring anything with you.
We visited Carnac for the beaches and moules frites (huge portions for 10 euros) lovely boutiques in Pontivy, market day Wednesday in Auray & then walk to down the cobbled street to St Goustan to see the boats and art galleries (check out the small cafes & restaurants tucked away up the hill to the left of Franklins creperie restaurant which is also good) Baud and the local patisserie in Chapelle Neuve. The swimming pool kept our two boys (10 & 12) entertained for many hours, including the woods and the large open area for ball sports, even a spot of fishing in the river.
Highly recommended and enhanced by the friendly owners. It was such a shame to leave them both
and the gite,thank you for making our holiday so special.

Owner response

Hi Donna, Karl Reuben and Nathanial,

It was really lovely to meet you all , and it felt comfortable with everybody from the moment you arrived. We were so pleased to see how much the boys enjoyed riding their bikes .

Your boys are a credit to you, great parenting and support from you both.I know that they will achieve so much in their sports and music.

Get them to listen to 2cello. Two young men who have trained and become brilliant with the cello. Maybe an inspiration ?

We do hope that you return to Kerabellec as you would always be very welcome.

Lots of love

Vicky and Sam

An idyllic setting, and a fantastic set-up for families.

For the kids, there is room to run around and a very safe pool area. For those adults not running around after the kids, there are plenty of quiet corners in which to spend time with a book.

We loved our morning wanders to the village, and the friendly bakery.

Meal times were spent on well-appointed decking areas, and we made good use of the barbeques.

Nearby Baud has everything you’ll need in terms of groceries and other amenities, and Sam and Vicky couldn’t do enough to help us whenever we had a question.

Owner response

Hi Angela
It was really lovely to see you enjoying the quiet time at Kerabellec after what sounded like very busy work commitments!

It was a pleasure to have you stay here and hope that you enjoyed your time here enough to visit us again in the future .

Best wishes
Vicky and Sam

We loved our two weeks in the Gites Kerabellec. The advertisement we responded too was fulfilled fully. The Gites are in tip top condition. The owners who live in the complex went above and beyond expectations to be helpful. We loved every minute of the time there.
There were nineteen in our family there in the 4 Gites including 8 children under 9. They had a great time in the pool and play areas in the gardens. Some days they just did not want to go anywhere else even though we enjoyed the beaches, zoo's and adventure play grounds nearby (10 to 45 minutes drives away).
We would highly recommend it to other family's and have the highest praise for Sam and Vicky the owners who made sure we got the maximum enjoyment from our stay.
