About Rob and Erika Topping

Rob and I decided to move to France to have a quieter life and also so we could spend more time with our son, who was 1 at the time. We visited the Farm in 2001 on a rainy day in January and fell in love with the buildings and the countryside straight away. If it looked this good in the winter imagine during the summer! We left the next day have bought the farm and have never looked back since. We now have 3 boys, some animals (!) and have settled well in to a lovely community.

Rob and Erika Topping purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Rob and Erika Topping chose Melgven

We are located in the middle of beautiful countryside yet can cycle to the local town that has all the amenities we could ever need. It has easy access to the motorway and there are many historic places to visit within a short drive, 10 - 30 mins. We are just a 15 minute drive to many different beaches that are unspoilt and great for children, we love nothing better than picking our children up after school and heading off to the beach for a picnic. Throughout the year you can go out walking on the many coastal paths, that are equally stunning on a stormy winters day as on a sunny summers one. We have several properties of varying sizes to choose from, so great for families and large groups. As well as being close to the beach we also have a large heated Pool.

What makes this cottage unique

What's unique about our property, well I guess we are a little biased as we live here and love the area and the Breton people.... but we think that we have the perfect place as there is always something to do here, come rain or shine. We have lived here for 13 years now and never have a problem of finding something to do or somewhere to visit. There are not many places that have historic towns, amazing natural beaches, rivers, some of the best seafood in France landed locally every day, play parks and all on your doorstep. In addition our Cottages are set in the middle of our land, so you have a 100 acres of forest, meadow, river and fields to explore, while at the same time feeling secure that your children can explore as we did when we were their age. But don't take our word for it read the reviews on our website.

November 2017 half-term stay at Keranmeriet Gites with Grandsons

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautifully clean and very well appointed 3-bedroom, 3-storey cottage in the corner of the farm building complex. We arrived around 8pm, an hour or so later than planned after a slow drive from Cherbourg but were welcomed warmly by Erika. She introduced us to our cottage where the wood burner was already alight. The details of the arrangements for our stay were considerately left until later the following morning. The farm was not busy during our stay which meant that we were able to leave our car conveniently right outside the front door. We were able to come and go as we chose, and to be as independent as we wanted, knowing that Erika and Rob would be happy to help us with anything that we needed. Our short week was busy, and we realise that we were only able to scratch the surface of what was available to see and do in the area, and there was much exploring of the local area that we could have done. Our departure went equally smoothly. Our thanks to Erika and Rob for providing an ideal holiday destination, and congratulations on their amazing achievement.

Beautiful Accommodation in an outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

We now try to spend all of our allotted holiday time in this beautiful place. It is heaven on earth for us. The owners, Rob and Erika Topping are very attentive and accommodating without being intrusive. The facilities provided are second to none! So much so that it has become a home from home for us and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when we are in our beloved Brittany. Outstanding accommodation at very reasonable prices :-)

A fantastic place to holiday

  • 5 of 5

We've been holidaying at Keranmeriet for the last 9 years, soon to be 10. It's truly a beautiful place in every respect. The gites are located in the Brittany countryside and close to beaches, amenities and historic cities.The accommodation is of a very high standard with everything you'd need for a relaxing holiday, not forgetting the heated swimming pool for lazy days. The owners, Rob, Erika and family make you feel so welcome and couldn't be more helpful.
