About the property

Benodet Cottage Gites I

Who Visits Kergarec? Kergarec is not only for families. During the school holidays, it is true, our visitors are almost all families; mostly British and Irish with a smattering of French and German.

They come from every walk of life and a large percentage are returning visitors who frequently bring their friends. Often, two or more families come together and stay in separate accommodation, getting together when they wish. There are outside dining facilities for all locations

Outside the main school holidays we have a mixture of young families not limited by school holidays and older people. We are particularly well equipped for babies and young children; baby sitters, stair-gates, cots, high chairs. baths with shower attachment, microwaves, DVD s etc. WiFi throughout.

Children Friendly. Parents can enjoy their holiday secure in the knowledge that their children are safe in the garden. Kergarec is entered through code controlled electric gates which close automatically after the residents’ cars. All the animals are in paddocks (they can bite you but they can’t kick you). The lake has a fence over 6ft high and is approached through a double bolted gate. There is a strategically placed and very well equipped play area for children of all ages as well as adults. Activities range from sand pit and Wendy house through swings slides and see saws to table tennis, badminton, boules and football. Cricket even started last year players aged from 3 to over 50. With the proximity of the beaches and in the interests of safety and ecology we have decided against a swimming pool. There is the sea two miles away and two public pools within ten minutes drive.

The Gardens: The park-like gardens of Kergarec are beautiful by any standards. Totally secluded, screened by natural vegetation they contain hundreds of specimen trees and shrubs interspersed with swathes of lawn. Within the garden there are three barbecues and ample garden furniture; quiet shaded walks and secluded corners to relax in peace.

We have secure parking within the grounds and a full-time gardener-cum-handyman, Gilbert, who is most helpful – if you speak French!

Location: Kergarec is situated in the countryside just two miles inland from the bustling seaside resort of Benodet with all its holiday amenities (including a supermarket). There are long, open sandy Beaches close at hand and a host of intimate, rock surrounded, coves beloved of the British, a few minutes drive away. As a complete contrast the tree fringed river Odet and its estuary provide shaded riverside walks.

Getting Here: Most of our visitors arrive from one or other of the north French ports. Roscoff is the nearest – 90 mins drive; St Malo is 2hr 30mins. Cherbourg and Caen – 5 hours. The tunnel gets nearer every year and can now be done in about 7 hours. The airport most used by our visitors is Brest which is an hour away. Quimper has its own airport but flights are, at the moment only from London City.

The Area: There is nothing ‘kiss-me-quick’ about Benodet. It is a tasteful resort with all the facilities one would expect. Outdoor music to meet most tastes in the evenings throughout the season. Boat trips up the Odet to Quimper and out to the Glenan Isles. A supermarket, cinema, casino and the best ice creams I have ever tasted. Organised children’s activities on the beach, sailing, surfing and riding schools, tennis, bike hire, horse riding and a host of reasonably priced restaurants. There are two public swimming pools within ten minutes drive.

Historic Quimper With its hypermarkets, shops, galleries and ‘old town’ is a quarter of an hour away. Concarneau, fortified fishing town. Pont Aven, beautiful village with artistic heritage (Gaugin). La Torche where the world surfing championships were held in 2014, are all close at hand.

Kergerac is ideal holiday accommodation, well situated some 5 mins by car from Benodet with wonderful beaches, walks and restaurants and 20 mins or so from Quimper, the main town. The gardens are most attractive, secluded and secure, and provide many sunlit or shady spots to stroll (or run!) around in or lie back on a sunlounger and read a book. Gite I provides simple but comfortable accommodation and has recently been given a makeover. It is a little more private, being at the end of the row of gites. Rod and Maryvonne are charming hosts, who strike the balance beautifully between being on hand to offer help and advice (plus unbeatable local knowledge) and leaving you to chill out. We must like it, as this was (approximately!) our 10th visit. 5 stars for being the most relaxing place we know.

Kergerac provides ideal holiday accommodation within the most attractive, secluded and secure gardens, complete with plenty of sunlit or shady corners to stroll (or run!) around in or lie on a sunlounger and read a book. Each gite is simple but comfortable: Gite I (along with the others, we believe) has recently been given a makeover and is a bit more private at the end of the row. Kergerac is well located some 5 mins by car from Benodet, with wonderful beaches, walks and restaurants, and about 15 mins to the main town of Quimper. Rod and Maryvonne are charming hosts, who strike the balance beautifully between being on hand to offer helpful advice (and unbeatable local knowledge) and leaving you to chill out. We must like it as this was (approx) our 10th visit! 5 stars for being the most relaxing place we know.
