The Brittany region

Kerdeven is in the beautiful rolling countryside of central Brittany. Close to the historic Nantes/Brest canal which has largely been restored in recent year. It has an interesting history having been constructed by loccal prisoners on the orders of Bonaparte as part of his strategy to get supplies to his troops without running the gauntlet of the British Fleet. The canal and its' towpath provides good cycling, fishing, walking, canoeing (with shutes to the side of the locks) and horse riding. Bicycles and canoes are available for hire locally. There is a riding school providing escorted rides. The Lac de Guerledan has 2 good beaches and a wide range of water sports. The lake itself is around the size of Windermere and has boat trips around its' perimeter during which you may take lunch. There is a mountain bike trail in nearby Plouguernevel. The ancient Abbaye de Bon Repos has been the subject of recent restoration and provides a good insight into local history. It is also the venue of a spectacular Son et Lumiere each summer. There are other interesting museums and gardens open to the public nearby. There are many local markets and sensibly priced restaurants. The owners are at a sufficient distance for your comfort, but close enough to make reservations for you, or doctor's appointments when needed.


Often described as Cornwall without the high density population, Brittany offers peace, tranquility and the opportunity to enjoy beautiful countryside and a rich tapestry of history without feeling suffocated with the presence of thousands of other tourists. The climate is warm, gentle and very similar to that of the Channel Islands.The gently rolling countryside is very popular with cyclists and is used as a training area by many teams. For those who prefer their cycling to be of a more gentle nature there is the canal towpath and the opportunity to stop off to explore the many country lanes that lead from it. Ask your hosts about local 'fetes' and 'pardons' being held in nearby villages during your stay. You will always be assured of a warm welcome, often able to join in a celebratory meal and the inevitable dancing that follows, at which most of the village, including children, show their robust enjoyment. .

"A perfect place for relaxation, exploration and fun"

9 family members (of 3 generations) stayed in this cottage for two weeks, at the end of July and early August. We received a warm welcome and any queries were dealt with immediately and helpfully. T… More

"Sunflower Cottage"

My wife and I and four family members stayed for a week and wish it could have been longer. A wonderful cottage with all the amenities. The swimming pool was a real bonus. While we made a few trips to scenic spots we were all quite happy to stay on the property and relax. The geese were great fun and kept us all amused and it was nice to be able to feed them and go for a stroll with them in the evening. Walking and cycling is a pleasure with little or no traffic on the roads. All in all a very relaxing holiday location.
