The setting is lovely; at the end of a residential road set in large wooded grounds, but still just minutes from the centre of Quimper. It suited us, a couple with a young baby, perfectly. We enjoyed sitting out in the evening whilst she slept upstairs within earshot. Well equipped kitchen and BBQ for evening meals. Supermarket, boulangerie and fish moungers 10 minute walk. Quimper, 5 minute drive. Good central location for exploring Brittany. Bernard and Dominique were so kind and helpful, checking in with us nearly everyday. A lovely stay! Merci Beaucoup.

Our party of 3 adults and 2 dogs were met by Stewart and Tricia upon arrival who could not have been more welcoming. Stewart gave us some fab tips for the local surf spots and assisted with booking our vet visit for the dogs on our return trip to UK. They were always on hand if needed but never intrusive. The cottage was beautifully decorated and cosy with everything supplied that we could possibly need for a two week stay. We rarely used the tv but English channels were available and due to the heatwave the woodburner remained unlit but no doubt would have been a lovely touch on a cool evening. The washing machine facility was very useful and the bbq was utilised every night! The fridge and freezer were a perfect size to stock for two weeks and most of our shopping was done at the supermarket in Plomodiern. The garden was amazing, like a small field which the dogs loved; especially the little stream that ran through. Wildlife was in abundance as we woke up to deer and hedgehogs in the garden and stunning dragon flies buzzing about. The terrace at the rear of the property was a lovely spot to unwind and laze about on the loungers. A great vantage spot to watch the dogs play in their field! The pool area was another brilliant area to chill and read a book or two. The pool itself was very clean and lovely and warm: a good many hours of fun were spent playing about on the inflatables provided. Amazing to have such a lovely pool to ourselves and a great sun trap too! There were beautiful walks and cycling opportunities both from the cottage and surrounding area. The church opposite is worth a look and a cycle along the cycle trail canalside at Chateaulin is fab. Our favourite beaches were Pors Ar Vag, (10 minute drive) La Palue (30 min drive and a walk required and remote) L'Arb (Crozon). Could not recommend the cottage and area enough. It was perfect for relaxation and sports. The most dog friendly location ever. The local beaches ban dogs but sensible walking times and using the remote ends of the beaches and low tide line never stopped us enjoying the beaches with the dogs. The locals seem to take little notice of the signs. Amazing holiday ....... Thank you so much for having us stay.
