Keriou - a Brittany holiday cottage.

Set in an idyllic valley hamlet close to the village of Guiscriff in the South Brittany department of Morbihan. Full of character and charm and equipped with all you need for a relaxing family holiday, a group of friends or a romantic break. The huge wood burner will keep you warm in winter, while the thick stone walls are cool when its hot outside. There is a large natural garden with furniture and barbeque.

The three bedrooms all have comfortable beds, one double, one with a double and large single and one with a double and bunk beds. Fresh linen and towels are supplied.

The two bathrooms are modern, spacious and very well appointed. Both have large walk-in shower cubicles with powerful shower heads. The first floor bathroom has a deep roll-top bath in addition to the large shower.

The kitchen has everything you could need, including a range cooker, dishwasher, and ample crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils and serving dishes - and of course an extensive supply of glassware. For those who love to cook there are plenty of sharp knives, baking tins, cast iron casseroles etc...and a rolling pin (altough I have to say that french ready-rolled pastry is superb)!!

Please be aware that the staircase is typically steep to the first floor and, while children dont seem to have a problem, it is not suitable for elderly or disabled guests. We do provide a stair gate for the safety of toddlers!

Just 30 minutes by car from beautiful sandy beaches. Concarneau with its medieval walled town and port, and Quimper with its impressive Cathedral are similar distances. The city of Lorient is approx 45 minutes south.

There are endless walks, cycle paths, rivers and canals. Beautiful countryside, fantastic fishing villages and an abundance of seafood everywhere you look!

The village of Guiscriff 2.5km away provides all day to day requirements with a variety of local shops, a 'Huit a Huit' mini market with a superb butchers and small deli, three restuarants and a choice of friendly bars. There is a fresh fish and a vegetable stall in the square on a Tuesday and a weekly market is held on Saturday in the nearby town of Scaer which is approx 5km away. You will also find a large E Leclerc supermarket and a greater variety of shops, sports facilities, swimming pool and pony club.

"Absolutely, amazingly beautiful in every way."

As you approach the house, you are welcomed by an abundance of trees, hydrangeas and a feeling of calm and tranquility. Keriou is warm, welcoming and has a magical feel of that perfect holiday. Equipped with everything you need, from a terrace perfect for breakfast, a late lazy lunch or dinner, to a large dining area inside for those cooler days where you can light the wood burner, grab a book and relax. With the pretty coastline of Brittany a 20 min car ride away, you are never short of things to do with so many places to explore. Child friendly, home from home feeling, keriou is a must for all future family holidays!

So glad that your stay was everything you had hoped!
