About this property

Peaceful Cottage with Enclosed Garden Near the Sea.. This cottage/gite is in a coastal setting.

Kermorvan was originally a farmhouse and the adjoining barn has been renovated to include a holiday cottage with B&B on offer in the main house. We are situated just a 5 minute drive from the wonderful bay at St.Michel en Greve. Our home is 200 meters off a quiet county road, nestling between fields and trees giving it a truly country feel. Kermorvan has the best of both worlds and offers a place to relax and a base from which you can explore Cote d‘Armor and Finistere.

The cottage sleeps 4-6. It has it's own private entrance, terrace and garden.

We enjoyed our week at Kermorvan. It is in a beautiful, private setting which was perfect for us with our 2 dogs. The cottage is very well equipped and we were very comfortable
Maggie and Claus made us welcome and gave us information on the local area. Kermorvan is ideally placed for exploring the beautiful pink granite coastline.
We would definitely recommend this pretty little home to others

We spent some lovely days in Kermorvan over an extended Easter weekend. The newly renovated cottage was clean, well-equipped and set in a tranquil location (though only a 5 minute drive to the local beach), with a private garden area for the kids to play along with terrace for the adults. The owners were very welcoming and provided useful tips of what could be done in the area (we hadn't spent a great deal of time preparing). As it happens we were spoilt for choice in terms of sandy beaches and rocky coastline to explore. What did surprise us was how relaxed things were in contrast to what would have been bedlum in many UK resorts at that time of year. This was our first visit to Brittany; we'd love to come back and highly recommend Kermorvan.
