What a wonderful place to stay, relax, unwind but also feel like its home from - the Gites is equipped with everything you could need and Janet and Mick are more than happy to help - nothing is too much trouble.

Very family friendly and lots of space for little ones to play, run around and have fun, in a very safe environment. Bikes were lent to us and the badminton net was put up for our use, Janet and Mick certainly made our holiday!

A great location to see the Pink Granite Coast and surrounding towns and villages, Janet told us where the local markets were and the key places to visit, which enhanced our holiday.

We had a truly wonderful week at Crech Mordo and will certainly be going back.

perfectly peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked the Gîte for three nights for a short break.

We were absolutely delighted. The Gîte is much larger than we expected and set in a very rural location, with easy access to the nearby lovely town of Pontrieux

It is well furnished, and well equipped with everything you need to self cater. Mick an Janet went out of their way to make us as comfortable as possible whilst giving us the privacy we needed. The welcome pack of bred, jams, butter, herbs and a bottle of wine were most welcome..

The log burner in the living room was a delight in the chilly evenings.

The complete tranquility of the location meant excellent nights sleeps were had, much needed to recharge our batteries

Simply , the perfect location and accommodation.

We highly recommend a stay here .

Fantastic family holiday rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic two week holiday in this immaculate property set in beautiful grounds - quiet and relaxing but within walking distance of the town which was stunning and had plenty of bars, restaurants etc to keep us entertained. The cottage had everything we needed (including WIFI for two teenage children!) and was in easy reach of some stunning coastline. Janet was brilliant - very welcoming - and provided us with loads of information about places and local events which she thought we would enjoy. Comes highly recommended. Thank you Janet and Michael for making such an effort to make our holiday memorable and for the very warm welcome.

We rented the cottage for Easter. It was absolutely perfect in every way; it's a beautifully maintained home (clean rooms, very good customer service) lovingly looked after by the proprietor. Fantastic garden and play area (we have got two boys). We wished that we could stay for longer. The peace and quiet we found there was very welcome after our trips. We have had the most relaxing and peaceful holiday in a really beautiful countryside. We were lucky to find Crec’h Mordo and hope to be able to return one day again. Thank you.

Crec'h Mordo.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience of a Gite holiday and were not sure what to expect. All we can say is that it fully lived up to its description. The cottage is lovely and has been completed to a very high standard. It was comfortable and fairly well equipped and stands in a beautiful rural setting with interesting outbuildings and lawns.

It turned out to be in very convenient situation with regard to visiting the local towns and villages. It is our first vist to Brittany and we explored most of the area which we found to be absolutely charming. Pontrieux is a real find but all of the places we visited turned out to have character and distinction. The countryside, in some ways is so like England, but then you look at the domestic architecture and it is obviously so quintessentially French.

Our French is very basic but we were treated everywhere with kindness with a smile, something that will remain with us.

A holiday we will remember with affection.

Holiday Oasis

  • 5 of 5

You never know when arriving at your destination for the first time what to expect. We need'nt have worried as the welcome was as warm as the night air. Janet and her family were on hand to make sure our first impressions would match our lofty expectations. We would not be dissapointed.

The cottage was well appointed with all the mod cons you would expect and then more some. The availability of interent wireless connection and freeview TV was a bonus we did not expect.

Immaculately laid out and spotlessly clean we were surprised by he space and modern feel.

Outside the back is a small oasis of peace and quite where you can sit and enjoy a good book supported with a glass of french wine. The open fields and landscape gardens add to the feel of quality.

To the front is a tailored drive and playing area which the owners have cleverly made into a family games area wher badminton in particular is the order of the day.

The local area is fantastic for walking along stunning coast or if with a family good beaches. The area also has a selection of attractions the pick of which we found to be the Galic Village. Don't miss local towns such as Pampol which provide a wealth of variety.

Further afield St Marlo is also well worth a trip.

Most of all you should take advantage of the unbeatable hospitality of the hosts who cannot do enough for you from giving advice on where to find little places to vist to barbecuies on the front lawn.

Once you have been you will want to go back
