Spacious detached Breton cottage set in idyllic central rural Brittany. Roscoff 1+ hours, St Malo 2 hours drive. Large attractive private gardens and driveway. Ideal for those seeking peace and tranquility. Nearest village with restaurant, post office etc 5 mins by car. Centrally situated for access to north and western coasts. Adjacent to owners home, but separate and private. Sorry no pets.

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.

The Brittany region
This is an ideal base from which to explore Brittany, a rich and diverse heritage to be discovered, from the monolithic stones of Carnac to the submarine pens of St Nazaire, the rugged coastline of the north to the foam crested waves and endless sandy beaches of the south. Peace, tranquillity and clean air, commodities difficult to find in an ever stressful world, all can be found here in abundance.
A countryside where an unpolluted night sky is pierced by a panoply of twinkling stars. Experience the luxury of the open roads whether by motorcycle, car, bike or simply walk along the many bridle ways and footpaths.
Stop along the way and sample the delights of the famous Breton seafood platters or try the mouth watering traditional Breton crepes washed down with a glass of refreshing cider.
Explore "Toul Goulic" and explore this mysterious hidden valley where a nascent river tumbles through boulders the size of houses, disappears and reappears as it cascades down to the valley bottom. Should you feel a little more adventurous then, a short distance from the Toul Goulic is the lake at Tremagat where for a modest sum in the holiday season, you can hire kayaks, sail boards or canoes.
A pleasant 25min ride will take you to the inland resort area of the Lac De Guerledan, a huge lake where all manner of water sports can be found from peddaloes to water skiing. A little further a field - a 50min ride will take you to the north Brittany coast. At Plouha you can follow the paths of the resistance as they smuggled allied airmen back to the coast passing through a tunnel in the cliffs to the hidden cove of the "plage de Bonapart". It was from here they were rescued and ferried back to England and freedom. Carry on along the coast and visit the ruin of "abbey de Beauport". On to the port of Paimpol where the cod fishing sailing boats used to leave for their long and arduous journey to the Icelandic fishing grounds. Finish the day by watching the sun as it sets low over bays and islands, across a sea stretching all the way to America.
Plenty to experience and explore.
