Visitor suitability

Pen at Voas suits all ages and is set in a very peaceful and quiet environment. The local area offers a wide variety of entertainment and it is up to you as our guests to do as much or as little as you chose to.

We have had families with young children, families with teenagers, young and more mature couples. Everyone has found activities to suit them from touring brocantes and boot sales to days spent on the numerous local beaches sunbathing or collecting cockles to bowling and paintballing or walking the many "randonee" routes.

We do not have specific disabled access and our courtyard is laid to gravel making wheelchair access very difficult. We do have ground floor toilets and shower rooms and can organise ground floor sleeping arrangements should they be required

The gîte was very well described in the advert, a beautiful location with lots to do.
The gîte is beautiful and is equipped with everything a family needs.
The owners were great, they provided facilities such as badminton, table tennis, table football, and a separate games room with many board games and a great selection of videos to watch. There were even wet suits provided.
I would highly recommend this property.
The beaches are really beautiful and nets are provided on many that can be used for beach ball activities. The markets are great for artisanal goods and local foods, there are many markets in the local area.
Driving around the coast is a must, there are many beaches, ports and towns to visit. The beaches can be visited for different purposes, Loqueric is a beach for surfers and Caranac for sunbathers. Perros Gueric must be visited to see 'la côte de la granit rose.'
Morlaix is a historical city with a very impressive viaduct. Caranac is best known for the Carnac stones, thousands of prehistoric standing stones spread across three alignments
