Surrounded by beautiful countryside, overlooking the nearby Montagne Noires (Black Mountains) Kervihan is the perfect retreat, here you will soon find yourself unwinding and surrendering to the “French pace of life”.
Our house has been designed to help you relax and breathe a sigh of relief from the moment you arrive. From its seemingly secluded spot, you wouldn’t know you are only a 20 minute drive from some of the best beaches in Brittany, or a 40 minute drive from either Morlaix or Quimper; two of Brittany’s finest Medieval towns. Just 3 minutes from the house in a car or a 10-12 minute walk is the nearest village, Plonevez du Faou. This is an unspoilt genuine Bretagne village, where everyday Bretons go about their daily lives. With two boulangeries, a charcuterie, a florist, a pizzeria, a mini supermarket and the customary tabacs you will find all your day-to-day needs on hand in charming surroundings. With a medieval church positioned in the centre of the village, you will begin to have a taste of the many historic buildings this region has to offer.
The house enjoys a private position and has been designed with open plan living accommodation on the upper floor to take full advantage of the surrounding views. Kervihan has three en-suite bedrooms, two with King Size beds and the third has two singles which can be put together to form a Super-King Size Bed. Two of the en-suites have modern showers and the third has a claw foot Victorian Roll Top Bath for two in the fireplace (yes the fireplace – where else do you put the bath?). Additionally there is a sofa bed with a king size bed for sleeping another two in the lounge area.
A fully fitted, fully integrated kitchen has all modern conveniences (including a dishwasher) for preparing those French gourmet meals. The dining table seats up to ten people and the lounge/den area has seating for at least eight and has a woodburner for the cooler evenings. You will find a flat screen TV, DVD player and satellite dish for entertainment, although we feel you will be whiling away your evenings sitting outside enjoying the sunsets. The house has full WiFi accessed throughout the property for those that feel they need to stay connected during their stay. The raised deck on the south facing balcony outside the kitchen is a perfect spot for morning coffee whilst watching the sunrise, or alfresco meals. Outside, each en-suite bedroom has it's own private patio with a small table and chairs, so everyone has their own little space to hide away. It is fabulous to have the open-plan layout for living and dining when everyone wants to come together to share a meal or spend the evening together, but its also great to have your own space from time to time. Each private patio has a different aspect, so will enjoy sun at different times of the day.
A gas Barbecue is provided for cooking outside should you wish, along with sun loungers, and an outside dining table and chairs for those alfresco meals.
