About Chrissie Prevost May

I am a French national (originally from Tours in the Loire Valley) who has been living and working in the UK for the last 36 years. My husband, Nick, is British and speaks very good French. 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 can relax and 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

Why Chrissie Prevost May chose Cotes d'Armor

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 were very lucky to find exactly what we were looking for! We love its rural and peacefuly location not far from the coast and its beaches (a 30-minute drive) 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 to make your stay enjoyable.

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.

What makes this cottage unique

It is the perfect home-from-home experience and the ultimate gateway place in a quiet location, 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another splendid review to end the summer: “A wonderful cottage, perfect location; very quiet and peaceful and yet close to beautiful towns/villages/markets and beaches. We would highly recommend it! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage. We loved every minute inside and outside in the garden where the children could run and play safely"

Lovely house in very peaceful rural location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wer Ruhe haben möchte, ist hier genau richtig.

  • 4 of 5

Hat man den Weiler endlich nach langer Anreise erreicht, erwartet einen ein kuschliges, liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Häuschen, in dem es sich gut aushalten lässt. Unser Sohn hat sich besonders über den regelmäßigen Katzenbesuch gefreut. Wir haben uns wohlgefühlt.
