The gite was very well stocked with everything we needed, and the owners very kindly went to great efforts to provide lots of toddler items for our 2.5yr old daughter - travel cot, stair gate, high chair, toys and books, plastic plates/cup etc, baby bath, child toilet seat, nappy bin etc. The garden is brilliant for children to race around and also use the swings, slide and trampoline. The weather was a tad rainy during our stay but we still managed a few dips in the heated pool inside gorgeous old stone walls and used the BBC a few times. We enjoyed the local beaches (pentrez and morgat), the Brest aquarium on a rainy day, and Quimper for great indoor food market and atmospheric pottering around the town. Would highly recommend.

It is deep in the countryside and very quiet and peaceful. It is well placed for exploring the area of the Park in all directions. The interior isn't luxurious, but it is very comfortable and cosy, particularly with the woodburner going. We had a very pleasant stay in mid-September, despite variable weather. We met the owners, who were delightful and very helpful.
