About this property

Kermarch Farmhouse/Adjacent Cottage Share Pool&Wi-Fi. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Kermarch
Situated just a 5 minute drive from Saint-Nicolas-du-Pelem, 15 minutes from Lac Guerlédan, the largest lake in Brittany offering many watersports, restaurants and beaches and only 30 minutes from the coast you will find our lovely 17/18th century hamlet of Kermarch set in 4 acres of trees, fields and gardens.
Here on-site you will enjoy swimming in our professionally installed 12 x 6m heated, fenced swimming pool with a shallow end and Roman steps. The pool is heated and is normally open from the end of May to the end of September. The pool is sheltered and well-positioned to be in full sun all day with tables, chairs, parasols and sunloungers to relax on. Also in the grounds are a boules court, table tennis, trampoline with safety net, childrens swing and slide and badminton.
We also have a large field that is kept cut for ball games (football, cricket and rounders) so that the young ones can play within sight but without disturbing the adults. There is plenty of room within the grounds to park cars safely.
Kermarch is in the countryside but yet only 5 minutes away from Saint-Nicolas-du-Pelem which offers a new large supermarket with fresh fish counter, butchery, bakery and all necessary provisions. There are 4 bars, a pizzeria and restaurant in the town, a couple of banks, doctors, pharmacy and garage.
The nearest large town is 30 minutes away, Saint-Brieuc which is the capital of the area and has a huge variety of shops and a hypermarket (Carrefour).
Pontivy is only a 30 minute drive and has lots of different small shops, a weekly market and a chateau open to the public.
Fishing and horse riding nearby.

Fantastic relaxing peaceful setting and a great interesting and well equipped house to accommodate a large family. The gardens, play area and swimming pool were excellent, our party of 9 including 3 grandchildren had a wonderful time. David and Carolyn were very friendly and welcoming.

Hope to see you all again one day

We have just returned from a lovely, relaxing holiday in Kermarch - we were a family group of 19, ranging in age from 4 months to 60+ and accompanied by one large dog.

The Kermarch properties are comfortable and well appointed and though deep in the heart of Brittany and surrounded by lush, green countryside and farmland, are still only about 1.5 hrs from St Malo ferry port and Dinard airport. The village of St Nicolas du Pelem is an easy cycle and if the local markets cannot cater for your needs, there is a SuperU very close by.

The children in the group had endless fun on the trampoline and swings and loved having the freedom to play and explore the grounds, while we all enjoyed the facilities for boules, table tennis and the safe, clean and well maintained swimming pool.

Nearby Quingamp, Quintin, Mur de Bretagne and the Abbey de Bon Repos all boast markets on various days. Mur a Pizzas in Mur de Bretagne served up freshly made, knock out pizzas and a warm welcome for 15 of us when we arrived unannounced one evening not long before closing and the lake at Mur de Bretagne has great kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding.

For the most part, we made our own entertainment and catered for ourselves in the leafy peace of Kermarch but we rounded off our holiday with a really 1st class meal at the nearby Auberge de Pelenic. Excellent!

Very good value for money.
