The Longhouse is built of pink granite and is the left-hand half of an old Breton longhouse. It is about 200 years old and used to be the boulangerie which served the local villagers. It is one of the three "Les Gîtes de Kerdalidec" just outside the village of Plougasnou which can be reached in 10 minutes by foot. The clean sandy beach is only 2km away. The Longhouse has it's own private garden with 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 floor is tiled and there is a beautiful persian carpet in the lounge area. 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.

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.

"Cottage Country Stay"

We stayed at Debbie Gamble's charming gite cottage for a week in July.
The cottage is part of a larger farm complex and there are actually 3 separate rental cottages on this property. Debbie lives nearby which is brilliant, not bad, as she is the ultimate helpmate in creating a wonderful week in her part of Brittany. Nothing it too much trouble for her to organize and advise about. She is energetic, great with kids and took our younger daughter to feed many of her myriad farm animals. Her pets and animals are indeed a highlight for the kids, there is easy interaction in her beautiful --award winning-- garden. Even though there are other rentals, our private garden was perfect for reading and morning coffee and we often grilled our supper there and ate outside in our garden. The kitchen is small, but well equipped for real cooking. The beds and hot water are plentiful and the washer works beautifully. It's very rustic and peaceful.
The area has amazing farmer's markets to visit if you like food and like to cook. It's heaven. This northwest part of Brittany is stunning, very dramatic coastlines, many many great hikes --take an easy picnic from the farmer's markets-- lots of fishing and divine seafood. A real plus of this cottage is that you can walk into town for your morning bread/croissant run. It's very close.
Also you can walk to supper in the charming square near their ancient church, and walk to the grocery store.
There are also bikes to ride. It's a lovely stay in a very relaxed, wild, free part of France. A real vacation.

I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay! I would love more people to come and explore this lovely, unspoilt part of Brittany which so many tourists whizz straight past on their way to the pink granite coast (only half an hour away). As I'm sure you noticed, the clean, sandy beaches are never crowded around here.
