About the Owner
We moved to France 8 years ago with a farm yard full of animals in tow. Now 1 run the only miniature Falabella horse stud in France breeding these extremely rare and tiny horses. - as well as managing the gite! We love to have people staying here who enjoy wildlife or simply want to introduce their children the outdoors.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for making us so welcome on our recent break. We all really enjoyed it and thought that the Gite was wonderful. We missed it very much when we left. It was really good to see a part of Brittany we hadn't been to previously and Petit Kernormand is ideally placed for benefiting both from the peace and quiet of the countryside, but with the town handy and the coast and places of interest within easy reach. Callac is a really nice town too."
"We had a fantastic holiday in every way possible. The gite, company and surroundings are all what made for such a special family holiday that I am sure we will all remember for a long time to come. Well that is until we get to do it again soon."
"We had such a marvellous time with you. The horses were great, but we also really enjoyed all the places we went to visit - many of them at your suggestions."

This was all we could have wanted from a family holiday. The gite was perfect and beautifully presented. The children loved it - particularly Rocky the little dog, and can't stop talking about their adventures. We all relaxed the instant we arrived with a lovely first night evening meal prepared by Sharon & Bill our hosts. They were so helpful , especially with the children and recommending places to visit and local activities. We can't wait to return to see how the horses have grown and to say hello to Rocky and friends again/ We are certainly recommending Kernormand to friends and family.
