10 / 10 The Coxes 1 September, 2018

A beautiful holiday home, set in a peaceful small hamlet, that more than matched up to the description. We met the owners, Louise and Steve, on arrival and they could not have been more friendly or helpful. The owners were on site during our stay, and were totally unobtrusive but readily available if needed.

The house was spotlessly clean and very light and airy. There is plenty of room and we didn't want for anything extra. The bedrooms were large enough with comfortable beds.

The outside space is excellent, the pool had almost daily use and we found it was big enough and deep enough for our teenagers to enjoy and there are plenty of loungers to relax on. The balcony at the front was great for relaxing in the evening with a glass of local grape juice, with a lovely view across the valley. The large outdoor table and gas barbecue was great for evening dining.

Louise recommended the boulangerie at Camors which we visited daily for our morning croissants and pastries, and there is a supermarket just up the road in Baud.

We loved the beach at Carnac, which was our favourite, but Larmor Plage and Quiberon are also well worth a visit. Pontivy was nice for an amble by the river, Hennebont is smaller but picturesque, but Auray was our favourite town, with the area down by the river a lovely find.

We had a wonderful holiday and would love to return to Kerbourbon in the future.

9.8 / 10 Day family 12 August, 2018

We had a lovely stay in Maison Verger. The property is in excellent condition, was very clean on arrival and well equipped.
The pool was the highlight for the kids. As guests we had exclusive use of the pool and the pool area was sunny and secluded. The pool was cleaned regularly by the owners so kept its sparkle for the whole of our stay.
The owners were very helpful and attentive during our stay, and were quick to provide assistance.
We will definitely consider another holiday at Maison Verger!
Thank you.

Owner response
