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.

|Unique benefits of property||Just 5 minutes drive from the beach, Kermorvan offers a perfect mix of both coastal and rural living in a peaceful setting.|
Lively market every Thursday, selling local fresh produce and local delicacies as well as textiles, clothes etc.
Typical Breton village setting for a predominantly British car-boot sale, selling everything from bric-a-brac to garden tools, English groceries and fresh produce. Sit outside the cafe and watch the world go by....
Ideal for your first Sunday morning. You can find everything you need here for Sunday lunch, tea and dinner! The market runs through the little town which is the closest shopping location with a well-stocked supermarket, PO, chemist, fish shop, bars and restaurants.
At St Efflam only 4.5km from Kermorvan you can join in all kinds of nautical activities.
From sailing and sand yachting to stand-up paddle and canoe. At St Michel-en-Greve there is a kite-surfing school.
Couldn't wish for a better hostess, she made us so welcome in many ways. The property itself was delightful. Only thing we really missed was a microwave in the kitchen!
Thank you for your kind comments Val. I enjoyed your visit and Cymru(the dog) is missing her garden companion.
If you check the kitchen description in the ad. you'll find the following sentence:- In the utility room neighbouring the cottage is a small freezer, a microwave and a washing machine available by arrangement.
The microwave is quite large and takes up a lot of the work surface. I did suggest on your arrival that if you found anything missing 'just ask'. But I take your point and will consider getting a smaller one.
I hope to see you all again.
Kermorvan is in a wonderful restful location hidden in the countryside outside St Michel en Greve. The gite is very comfortable with everything well thought out and matched the advert description perfectly. Everything is finished to a high standard and is clean throughout. We received a warm welcome from Maggie and Klaus and a delicious dinner brought to the gite on night one. There was safe parking right next to the house and so loading and unloading the car was easy. Kermorvan offers a perfect balance of having the owner on site but also having the privacy of your own space and Maggie and Klaus are really sensitive to getting that just right. Although the weather during our stay was overcast we enjoyed the garden and appreciated the vase of freshly picked flowers.
Perhaps an upgrade of the patio furniture would be nice but it was perfectly usable with cushions provided. There are plenty of attractive villages, markets and beaches nearby. We particularly liked Locquirec and Ploumilliau. Tregastel has a lovely child friendly beach and Perros Guirec is also a great place to wander round. If you want to drive a bit further Roscoff was well worth a visit.
We would definitely recommend Kermorvan to friends wanting a restful, relaxing stay in North West Brittany.
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
Nice helpful host, enclosed garden good for dogs.. Lovely beaches nearby. Would definately recommend.
