Just an hours drive from Roscoff ferry port and an easy route brought us to our gite for the week.
Set adjacent to the owners house, surrounded by peaceful countryside, the gite was everything we had hoped for. Exceptionally clean and well maintained. Finished to the highest of standards. A lovely rustic country feel to the property yet with the mod-cons you'd expect in the kitchen area and well appointed bathroom. Spacious and light with high beamed timbered bedroom space - the perfect holiday gite!
Outside too is a fantastic garden with large lawn area and beautiful borders, shrubs and small trees.
The vegetable 'patch' gives up unexpected treats when the owners let you help yourself to some of the delicious produce.
Sat on the patio area, with a wine in hand is the perfect way to relax, looking out over the garden, birdsong all around it just doesn't get better than this!
We had our 5 year old son with us and he wanted to stay in the gite 'for another 12 weeks!' - very specific! He had a great time and there was no concern of him running around and kicking a ball.
We all slept well on the comfy beds.
The surrounding villages are lovely. A couple of villages are just 5 to 10 minutes drive to pick up some cakes and bread. Larger supermarche at about 15 to 20 minutes, all easy to get to and the roads are unbelievably quiet!
The owners are so friendly, we had a warm welcome and a selection of goodies on arrival plus advice on local things to do. Book it!!
