I am a French national (originally from Tours in the Loire Valley) who has been living and working in the UK for the last 35 years. My husband, Nick, is British and speaks very good French and we live on a permanent basis in Devon. Kerauffret Cottage is our holiday home in my home country.
I am passionate about interior design and have created a warm, cosy and colourful interior full of character. I wanted our French home to be a place where we long to return time after time.
French family heirlooms and precious souvenirs have been teamed with some brand-new pieces of furniture for a warm and true cottage style.
Chrissie Prevost May purchased this cottage in 2014
We purchased this house in January 2014. We fell in love with this old stone cottage as soon as we set eyes on it. It has been fully renovated by the previous owners a few years ago. We were after a little place full of charm and character and we were very lucky to find exactly that! We love its rural and peacefuly location and we escape to it as often as we possibly can.
We have furnished this house to a high standard and it is a very comfortable home and definitively not just a holiday let! There is everything in it that you could possibly want and need.
The Côtes d'Armor is well-known for its superb landscapes along the shoreline. There is also a great deal to discover inland.
The famous "Côte de Granite Rose" (pink granite coast) near Perros-Guirec, as well as Cap-Frehel, Cap Erquy and Tregastel are amongst some of the most stunning places to discover.
It is the perfect home-from-home experience and the ultimate gateway place, only 1h15 minutes by car from Roscoff ferry port and 35 minutes from the pretty seaside town of Binic which boasts a beautiful long sandy beach.
The cottage enjoys a large front and rear garden of 842m2. Ample parking for 2 cars. It is full enclosed and secured.
We are Brittany Ferries "Club Voyage" members and are happy to pass on our membership details to all our cottage guests if they decide to use this method of travel so that they can benefit from a small discount on the price of their ferry crossings.
The cottage is full of character, and furnished to a very high standard providing a complete 'home-from-home experience'. The location is well placed for travellers who like to explore the region and experience the true French way of life, local villages, medieval towns, fishing lakes, history and culture. If you are looking to get off life's treadmill, and step into tranquil pace of life in comfort, in a picturesque location, then this is for you. Perfect place for ramblers/walkers, artists, photographers, fishermen, honeymooners and motorcyclists. The neighbours are British who have lived in the area for 9 years, they are very hospitable without being intrusive. Highly recommended!— Rebecca & Nigel Leppard, Gloucester, 02 Jun 2014
Lovely comfortable cottage in a quiet rural setting. Peaceful but with plenty to see and do nearby. Highly recommended!— Graham & Carolyn Baldwin, Gloucester, 02 Jun 2014
Magnificent place to stay. We enjoyed our stay in the cottage very much. The place is very nice and cozy. The kitchen is well equipped with attention to every single detail.
The bedrooms are nice and cozy and suitable to a family with two children, small or teenagers.
The owner, Chrissie, is very cooperative and helpful. She helped us a lot during the process of booking the place, getting there and during the whole stay.
We warmly recommend this place and surely recommend it to our friends.

Beautiful property, both inside and out. Fully furnished, in a tasteful way with everything you could need.
A real home from home experience.
Owners were helpful throughout the process.
Will be recommending and staying again.
Beautiful setting and very well appointed cottage. Very clean on arrival. Great area to explore.
The house was exactly as described. Everything worked perfectly. Copious instructions/notes to cover almost any situation were provided, along with a welcome bottle of cider and Breton biscuits. The location is good if you want a mixture of coastal and inland places to visit. We were only there 3 nights-not long enough to enjoy all that is on offer.
