Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

From the point of inquiry through to our return home, Vicky and Sam were incredibly helpful and considerate hosts.

Our family stayed in La Faisane. It was clean, comfortable, well equipped and well presented. The photographs are accurate and a very good representation of the gites and outside areas.

What the photos can’t convey is how much fun was had in the pool (yes, in early April) and in the garden with the play equipment, the lovely walks around the local lanes, the sound of the river and bird song in the garden and how nice it was to eat dinner in the sunshine.

We found the location suited us beautifully. There is an awful lot to discover within a radius of an hours drive; we only really scratched the surface in a weeks stay. Vicky has a wealth of knowledge regarding places to visit and there is plenty of up to date information available in the cottages. That is of course if you can tear yourself away from the relaxing environment of the gites!

Owner's Response: Hi Emma, Graham and Millie It was great to meet you all and you were super guests to have stay here at Kerabellec. Thank you so much for the English bacon and the Pollock, which both taste fantastic, and also for leaving your gite so clean after your departure. Yes you are right , a week just scratches the surface really as there are so many places to stimulate everybody interests , and also only 30 minutes from the beaches . I think April or May with all the flowers and blossoms are a great time to visit this area and we hope to see you again in the future . Best wishes Vicky and Sam

Wonderfully relaxing holiday in Brittany

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing two week stay at L'Hirondelle. The first impression was of how immaculate the rooms were with great attention to detail in the decor. Vicky and Sam were extremely welcoming and when we arrived late after a Eurotunnel delay greeted us with much needed beer and wine. They were helpful throughout the visit with everything from suggestions for places to visit or eat to sorting out a vet appointment prior to our return.

The property is very dog friendly, Sam and Vicky having two themselves, which made a huge difference to us and our Jack Russell Maya. They were happy for us to leave Maya for short periods while we went off running or for bike rides through local farmland and woods which would also be great for walking. The pool is a great asset and has a cover making it good for all weather swimming.

I would not hesitate to recommend this a place for couples or families.

Best family holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

Simply lovely tranquillity in France. Sam & Vicky are great hosts - on hand when call for, but off the scene otherwise. The gite & surroundings were in perfect order, the pool clean, and the nearby Town (Baud) an easy 10 min drive away, for supplies & wonderful Crepe. Planning on a return next year.

Gorgeous Escape

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cottage while I was training for a half marathon with our kids. The travel from Paris was beautiful and we were excited to stay in a quiet location with a pool. The owner's showed us plenty of places to walk and incredible nearby towns for day ventures. We spent our days running in the countryside, swimming in the pool and playing in the gorgeous garden. Each morning we woke up and headed to a local bakery for fresh croissants.

The cottage itself was incredible. We had a lovely kitchen as well as a living room the kids loved to play in. There was plenty of sleeping room upstairs for us and the kids in their separate room and at night we would sit out on the patio and enjoy the stars.

The countryside is full of scenery and animals with many accessible day trips including an outdoor modern art park and lots of sea side towns.

The cottage itself is really clean as is the pool and garden. The owners work hard to make sure you feel comfortable and provide help whenever needed. We would return again and again.

This is truly France at its best.

Nearest Airport
110 Kilometres
Rennes & Nantes
Nearest Ferry
150 Kilometres
St Malo, Caen, Roscoff
Nearest Beach
30 Kilometres
Car: recommended


The closest beaches are around Carnac - about 35 minutes on easy roads by car. Worth travelling another five minutes for are the beaches on Western side of the Quiberon peninsular where there is a wealth of water sport, including wind-surfing, kite-surfing, surfing and sand-surfing! The waters on the eastern side of the peninsular are calmer for young families. A favourite beach with our clients is at Kerhilio just at the base of the peninsular.


Our nearest airport is at Rennes (just over an hour by car) with several flights from the UK daily. Flights from the UK also come into Nantes and Brest. The nearest ferry ports are at Roscoff and St Malo, each about two hours drive away. Caen is under three hours by car and Cherbourg three and half hours. The drive from the Tunnel terminal at Calais takes six hours. Your own transport is essential when staying here.


Our nearest town is Baud, with a good selection of small shops, and some excellent bakers. There are three supermarkets and several good restaurants. La Chapelle Neuve is our closest village - a twenty minute walk away - and has a small shop. For serious shopping there is a hypermarket in Lorient. There are excellent markets locally - one almost every day in Vannes, or Auray, Carnac or Pontivy or Hennebont. There is also a small market in Baud on Saturdays.

Further Details:

All Gites are None Smoking, however outside smoking is permitted & ashtrays can be supplied. We keep a basket in each cottage with recommendations for local restaurants and tourist guides to what's on in the area. We ask guests to add to the basket with the things that they have most enjoyed doing. There are several interesting towns in the area, notably Josselin with its historic castle, and Vannes with its medieval streets.
