If you are looking for comfortable family accomodation then this is the perfect place for you.
Dating from the 18th century, the Longhouse is built of pink granite and used to be the boulangerie which served the local villagers. It is one of three cottages called 'Les Gîtes de Kerdalidec' which are situated 10 minutes walk from the village of Plougasnou where you will find a large supermarket, boulangerie, medical centre, tourist office, play-park, skate-park…in fact everything you could possible need. There is also an excellent restaurant at the end of our road which is only five minutes walk and has a good kid's menu.The clean sandy beach is only 2km away.
The Longhouse has it's own private garden and sunny patio and also free access to the huge shared garden where you will find a children's play-area and animals to feed...rabbits, pigeons, chickens and little black sheep.
The ground floor consists of one large room containing the luminous kitchen/dining area at one end and the cosy lounge at the other end with the wooden staircase in the middle.
The comfortable lounge is dominated by the original, immense granite fire-place where you can still see traces of the ancient bread oven. You will find three sofas in the lounge – one with three places and two with two places, plus extra chairs. The whole of the ground floor is tiled and there is a beautiful red persian carpet in front of the wood-burning stove in the lounge.
The kitchen is very well-equiped with a large 5-burner gas cooker/oven, a microwave, a dish-washer, a toaster and a cafetière and there is a large dining-table with bench seating for twelve. There are french-windows leading from the kitchen/dining-area out onto a patio with garden furniture for eating meals outside.There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor with toilet, basin, washing-machine and ironing facilities.
On the first floor we have kept the original oak floor boards and added rugs for warmth underfoot. There is a bathroom with bath, basin and WC and 3 bedrooms one with 2 single beds, one with a double bed and one with 2 sets of bunk beds. The bunk room also has children's books and toys! The bedrooms are carpeted.
In the attic are 2 further bedrooms which have attractive wood-panelled ceilings, one has a double bed and a cot while the other has just a double bed. Both rooms are carpeted. On this floor there is a shower room with shower, sink and toilet.
For babies we can provide cots, high chairs and there are 3 stair-gates.
Bed-linen can be provided at 8 euros per person payable when you are here. I am not equiped to provide towels for all my visitors but I am very happy to provide them free of charge for people arriving by plane or train.
The cottages are perfect for Christmas and New Year holidays.

Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: We came to France in 1996 to renovate a ruined farm complex. We have been running our gîtes successfully for 18 years and have won the village 'Flowery Garden' prize almost every year for our beautiful garden.
Why the Owner Chose Plougasnou: We chose this area because it is still unspoilt by tourism. The coastal path along the rugged cliffs gives spectacular views along the coast and is stunning at any time of year.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: You can benefit from the peace and quiet of the situation while still being within walking distance of shops, restaurants and the magnificent clean, sandy beach. The local residents are very welcoming and are delighted to meet foreigners.
