If you are looking for comfortable family accomodation then the Longhouse is the place for you. Dating from the 18th century, the Longhouse is built of pink granite and used to be the boulangerie which served the local villagers. It is one of three gîtes called "Les Gîtes de Kerdalidec" which are situated 10 minutes walk from the village of Plougasnou. The clean sandy beach is only 2km away. The Longhouse has it's own private garden and sunny patio and also free access to the huge shared garden where you will find a children's play-are and animals to feed...rabbits, chickens and little black sheep.

The ground floor consists of one large room containing the kitchen/dining area at one end and the lounge at the other end with the staircase in the middle. The lounge contains the original, immense stone fire-place where you can still see traces of the bread oven. The floor is tiled and there is a beautiful red persian carpet in front of the wood-burning stove. There are french-windows leading from the kitchen/dining-area out onto a patio with garden furniture for eating meals outside.

The kitchen is very well-equiped with a large 5-burner gas cooker/oven, a microwave, a dish-washer, a toaster and a cafetière and there is a large dining-table with seating for twelve. There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor with toilet, basin, washing-machine and ironing facilities.

The attractive oak beamed lounge is dominated by the huge original granite fireplace where there is a wood-burning stove for your comfort in winter in addition to central heating. You will find three sofas in the lounge – one with three places and two with two places.

On the first floor we have kept the original oak floor boards and added rugs for warmth underfoot. There is a bathroom with bath, basin and WC and 3 bedrooms one with 2 single beds, one with a double bed and one with 2 sets of bunk beds. The bunk room also has children's books and toys!

In the attic are 2 further bedrooms which have attractive wood-panelled ceilings, one has a double bed and a cot while the other has just a double bed. On this floor there is a shower room with shower, sink and toilet.

For babies we can provide cots, high chairs and there are 3 stair-gates.

Bed-linen can be provided at 8 euros per person payable when you are here. I am not equiped to provide towels for all my visitors but I am very happy to provide them free of charge for people arriving by plane or train.

The Longhouse is perfect for Christmas and New Year holidays.

The Brittany region

Brittany is well known for its beautiful sandy beaches and unique culture which is very different to the rest of France. We produce artichokes, cauliflowers, oysters and mussles in this area...not forgetting the Roscoff shallot!


This is an unspoilt and relatively undiscovered area which is never crowded with tourists. The incredibly rugged coastline harbours little hidden sandy creeks where you can relax and swim in the crystal clear water.
