Super relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at the cottage early afternoon after a bit of a nightmare with the sat navigation. Best way I can describe to get here is set your say navigation to Mael Pestivien to direction of Callan. The turn is off this main road. Anyway back to the cottage. Very room, all the amenities one could need. Nice starter pack provided Inc. half a dozen free range eggs from the owner's own chickens. Although the cottage is in the grounds of the owner's own home it is distinctively separate and therefore the cottage and grounds are secluded. A nice private driveway leads up to the cottage. No street lamps or other light pollution to worry about here. I tended to shop whilst visiting the my interesting places there are within an hour away. Boubriac has a couple of shops and a nice church in the square. Try the cake/bread shop or visit the small carrefour. Back to the cottage. Two good sized double bedrooms one with an additional single and travel cot if required. Huge family kitchen with large table and ample seating. Washer, fridge, cooker and microwave and iron/board. Lounge had TV with basic sky, did and video player. Small library and board games. Again ample seating. All rooms bright and airy. All in all a great bolthole for exploring Brittany or just to get away from the rat race.

Owner's Response: An honest and positive review,the cottage is suited for all age groups and a car is necessary for travelling to view beautiful coastal areas and wonderful peaceful countryside inland.Callac is the closest small town. Always useful to have a map of Brittany as back up to Satnav--the cottage does have maps and tourist information for your perusal after arriving. I am pleased to give further help if necessary.

  • Outside: The cottage is set in its own attractive grounds with private drive and gardens with the benefit of barbecue and garden furniture. Within the cottage grounds is a one acre park with badminton and various ball game possibilities or to just enjoy the tranquillity this space provides, surrounded by woods and farmland. It is my pleasure to provide my guests with complimentary new laid eggs from our free range hens and fruit when in season. Kerguiffiou is suited for adults and young persons seeking a peaceful and relaxed holiday in the countryside, but with the contrast of the nearest beaches within an hour. Just 30 minutes away north of Guingamp is the Armoripark, a delightful family activity centre, with swimming, trampolining, sledging etc. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Bed Linen and tea towels are provided. Other towels maybe provided on request.
