Gites in St Cadou, Finistere, Brittany, France - 2 Minutes To Swimming Lake & Waterports, Pub In The Village, Close To Beautiful Towns & Attractions
Welcome to Kergudon Gites et Chambres d'Hotes. In a place of peace and serenity, a presbytery was built in 1640 to provide accommodation for the clergy overseeing the construction of the church, and act as a rest stop for travellers and pilgrims. As the priest was allowed to keep doves, a privilege afforded only to the aristocracy and church, a dovecot was constructed in the south gable of the building which can be seen today. This has given it its name of Ker (‘home’ in the Breton language) and Gudon (‘dove’).
Over the next century stables and other buildings were constructed to support the occupants (the building we use as a gym being dated 1663) which have now been converted to provide self-catering holiday accommodation in this beautiful part of rural France.
Situated in the natural park of Armorique in the département of Finistère, as the name implies it feels like the end of the earth within the region of Brittany. Surrounded by forests and woodland walks Kergudon Gîtes & Chambres d’Hotes is within easy reach of lakes, coastline, beaches, villages and market towns which offer a wide range of activities for all our guests.
We bought the property at the very end of 2014 and are continuing to develop the cottages and Chambres d’Hotes to provide luxurious holiday accommodation for present-day travellers wanting rest and relaxation in comfortable gîtes which offer modern conveniences, home comforts and practicalities of the 21st century while retaining their French charm.
We have 4 separate gîtes, ranging from 1 bed (2 person) to 3 bed (6 person plus), which can be booked either individually or as a whole to accommodate larger groups or family for events and celebrations year round. Three of our gîtes are equipped to provide full self-catering accommodation while one, Stable, is best suited for Chambres d’Hôtes / bed and breakfast – however, those staying in any of our gîtes, self-catering or not, can take advantage of our B&B menu!
We believe our home offers huge attraction to anybody who wants to spend some time on holiday in this wonderful part of Brittany. Whether you are looking for a romantic break as a couple, luxurious affordable family holiday accommodation, space to bring the extended family for a celebration or event, a break in a charming and historic location with access to a wide variety of leisure activities, or somewhere for Chambres d’Hôtes (Bed and Breakfast) accommodation while walking, cycling, driving or travelling, we have something to offer at our gîtes in Brittany.
Please do visit our website for additional information on the properties, local area and activities to do.
We do not maintain an availability calendar anywhere on line so please do drop us an email or give us a call if you would like to find out if we have availability. We endeavour to respond within 24 hours.
Details for holiday cottage Stable at Kergudon Gites, 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2, 1 Bathroom
Stable, was previously one of the outbuildings of the Priory before being converted into a cosy studio gîte. It sleeps 2 in a kingsize bed making it ideal for couples or as overflow from one of the larger gites. The en-suite bathroom houses a shower, WC and vanity unit while the cosy living area has a kingsize double bed, armchairs, dining table and chairs and television. The stable retains much of its character with exposed slate walls and animal trough. Stable has basic catering facilities consisting of a microwave, kettle and small fridge. It can be used for weeklong stays for those keen to sample the many local restaurants or who enjoy simple meals. For a small additional charge, we can provide an evening meal and we have a wide breakfast menu for those who are looking for bed and breakfast accommodation. Outside the Stable is a private patio area with furniture and parasol & BBQ. We do not allow dogs to stay in Stable.
About the Owner
We moved to Saint Cadou in January 2015 having lived and worked in London for the preceding years. We were looking for a complete change of lifestyle that would allow us to pursue some of the activities that we were not able to do with our London lives and lifestyles.
We fell in love with the properties as soon as we saw them as they have age, charm and character. Since we arrived we have spent a lot of time refurbishing the buildings themselves and we are now focussed on the gardens and grounds which will be a multi-year project.
Since moving to France we have managed to pick up some of those other activities as we have bought the dog we always wanted so have a lovely Springer Spaniel, Garratt, as well as a cat called Mouse.
From the Owner
“Kergudon House is our home and we live onsite at Kergudon Gites et Chambres d'Hotes. We are so lucky to be able to live in such a beautiful part of Brittany and we love everything about rural French living, it is a privilege to be able to share this wonderful experience with our guests at Kergudon. As we live onsite we maintain the gardens and the gites all year round and we are also on hand to help with anything from French speaking to getting the dishwasher to work. We love French wine and French food and the simple pleasures in live, all of which you will find at Kergudon. Saint Cadou itself is an amazing little cosmopolitan village with a lively heart centred on the pub and the Salles des Fetes. If you are here when one of the regular Fete Noz's are arranged we would thoroughly recommend coming along to experience this amazing piece of Breton culture. The village, and so houses, are perfectly places equi-distant from the north, west and south coast of Brittany allowing us, and our guests, a wide range of interesting places to visit from wild coastline, to large towns and small cities and lovely smaller market towns.”
