LARGE COMFORTABLE SEASIDE COTTAGE SLEEPING 14 ON BRITTANYS NORTHERN COAST

Plougasnou Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Five bedroom detached cottage sleeping 14/15 with central heating

Kerguelen is a traditional Breton stone farmhouse set in its own large, sheltered private garden.

The sea and beautiful clean sandy beaches are just a short walk, as is the market village of Plougasnou where you will find all you will need for your self-catering holiday.

The ground floor comprises two rooms; a large salon with wood-burning stove set in an imposing fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen/dinning room (dishwasher (Bosch), electric kettle, microwave, large table with benches seating for 14). There is also a cloak area and utility room, with WC, and washing machine.

Climbing the traditional turning staircase the first floor has three bedrooms; one double, one double+single and a bunk-room sleeping four. All with views onto the large garden, and if you crane your neck out to the left a glimpse of the sea. There is also a shower/toilet.

The top floor has one double bedroom and another with 3 singles. There is also a bathroom with bath and hand-basin, and a separate room with wc

Beaches: Kerguelen is an ideal location for a beach holiday as there are many superb sandy beaches all with a short drive, enough to find a new one for each day of your visit, if you are so inclined. Some with large and panoramic views, others in small rocky coves. Some with convenient near-by car parking others hidden and requiring a walk. All offer safe crystal clean waters for bathing, if a little cold for some. Primel beach is the nearest beach to Kerguelen (1km distance) and has a safety patrol in summer.

Other beaches worth a visit; Plougasnou beach, Vilin Izella beach, set in a nature reserve with nearby water mill, Port Blanc, Le Guerzit, St Samson and Terénez with it's boats and Cafés.

Local activities: The area around Kerguelen and Plougasnou offers the possibility of many varied activities.

-Walking along the dramatic granite coast is a good way to get the heart beating as you climb and descend the many cliffs and take in the beautiful unspoiled seascapes.

-Terénez sailing club offers sailing lessons in catamaran yachts, and the possibility of visiting the bay of Morlaix, beginners are welcomed.

-Boat trips around the Bay Morlaix with visits to the Chateau Taurreau leave from the near-by port of Le Diben.

-Morlaix provides an historic glimpse into the past with walks or by tourist 'train' (fun for the children) through the narrow alleys between the colourful wood-framed houses. La maison Ponallez is worth a special visit.

-Brest (1 hr by road) has an interesting maritime museum and Oceanopolis amoungst other attractions. Shopping!

-The fabulous forest of Heulgoat in the Mont d'arret (1 hr road) with its enormous moss covered boulders makes for an interesting day out.

Great House

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed the house, the sea, Finistère, even the weather was very nice, we thought. There were days we sat in the garden reading in the sun without any coats on. I'd say that's nice enough for this time of the year. We even went for a new years swim at Vilin Izella beach! I hope we didn't leave the house too messy. With the weather and all the kids running in and out of the house, it was hard to keep it decent. It truly is a great house in a great spot. We had no idea where we would end up exactly, as it was the first time in Bretagne for all of us, but it is definitely a place to come back to. Sis New Year 2014
Owner's Response: Thank-you for a great review, and I was thinking you had terrible weather, it seemed like non-stop rain, but glad you could get out and about even a swim in the sea! Yikes.

A lovely Easter break

  • Submitted: Jan 5, 2014
  • Stayed: Apr 2012
Our family had a fantastic week here over the Easter holidays. The children played in the huge garden, we walked down to the sea, we visited other beaches and walked along the coast paths. Every evening we lit a fire in the wood burner, and read books in the sitting room. Very simple, and no TV! The house is well equipped and clean. The rooms are warm and the shower is hot and powerful. The rooms are not luxurious, but it's great for families with children, and the place feels very homely. The house is situated a short 15 minute walk from a small town which has lots of shops and a great market once a week.

Family holiday with grandchildren

  • Submitted: Jan 5, 2014
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
We spent a week with our four grandchildren all under 5 years and their parents. Kerguelen is ideally located near to several sandy beaches and the local small town which is very pretty and friendly. There is a boulangerie for early morning bread and a supermarket in striking distance. The local markets are fantastic for real French food. The garden is safe and enclosed. It is ideal for small children. Grandad spent a lot of time running around the garden and pushing the swing. The accommodation is good for various combinations of family. We asked for bed linen and the beds were helpfully made up on arrival. The kitchen is particularly good for large families to get together. Philip was very helpful. Overall we had a great week.

Great Holiday

  • Submitted: Jan 5, 2014
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We all had a great holiday, found the farmhouse to be exactly as you see in the photo, great setting. The garden was brilliant especally for the kids, playing football, cricket etc etc. We had barbecues most nights, as weather was very good, plenty of sunshine exactly what the doctor had ordered. The house is basic but in good order, requires a tv/dvd player, and internet. This is the only fault we could find with it, as there was no way of checking the weather etc, with out using your mobile phone, for the internet. Tv/dvd player would havebeen great, as some nights the kids, just wanted to sit, after a busy day at the beech. (and that includes the grown ups, as we where shattered most days, after swiming, football, cricket etc, and the occational bottle of wine). The house we found to be in a great location, in relation to the beeches (of which there is two excellent one's both within walking distance/bicycle). The loverly little villige of Plougasnou, was just a short walk, having a bakery and a butcher's shop and a few cafe's. There is also a supermarket, which has every thing you will need. All in all we had a great time, and would certainly not think twice and book it again. (grand children still talking about it, wanting to know when we can go back). Just a tip for any body traveling from the UK, as it was approx 6.5 hrs drive from getting off the train from Folkstone, try using the ferry from from Plymouth to Roscoff. We came back on it, and what a difference it makes to your travelling time, as Roscoff is only about 45 minutes to the farmhouse. We came back this way and was much easier.

This cottage was perfect for our holiday

  • Submitted: Jan 5, 2014
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We had an absolutely unforgettable Golden Wedding celebration here with our family from the UK and Canada. Everything we needed was available.There was a large well equipped kitchen and the sleeping and bathroom arrangements were more than adequate. The children loved the large garden. The nearest beache Primel Plage has beautiful clean sands and child friendly rock pools with coastal walks. Plougasnou has all the shops you could want, with a weekly market that you mustn't miss.The church is well worth a visit. We had a great meal at the restaurant 'Les Chaises' in the main square. They coped really well with our party of 13.and the food and service were excellent and at a reasonable price. (Book ahead!). Finally, the owner, Philip is friendly but unobtrusive - - the perfect landlord. We have already recommended Kerguelen to our friends. Judith and David Boston
