The cottage is located in a quiet rural setting three kilometers from Douarnenez, Cape Sizun door, one of the most spectacular parts of Britain that dives into the ocean to tip of Raz and Van (25km). All types of shops and services (markets, supermarkets, cinemas, restaurants, bars, hospitals) are three kilometers away, as are the nearest white sand beaches. The beautiful medieval capital of Cornwall, Quimper, is 20 km from the cottage. The cottage has a day room with fully equipped open kitchen, exposed oak beams, original fireplace, TV, CD and DVD ... It has been restored using bio-climatic materials (insulation, masonry, screed and hemp plaster, lime, sand, wood, etc.) and traditional techniques (terracotta floors or solid parquet nailed, pegged framework, wood oiled, etc.). The cottage can accommodate 4 people and offers a double room and a room with two beds. Garden and private parking.

Nice and romantic dwelling, well equipped and perfectly located
Sarah turned out to be a very nice and helpful landlady. With her description
and instructions (plus Google maps) we had no problems to find the place
and to enter it. Her two advertised gites are actually two parts of one house
which can be used separately or together. As a matter of fact, my wife and
I had the whole house for ourselves, so space was more than plentiful (it
even would have been plentiful if we had had only the smaller part). Sarah
was even so nice to not insist on the deposit although we accidentally
broke the glass cover of her little oven!
The house is old with lots of wood, and most of the wood is not young
either. It is well equipped with everything you need to run your little
vacation household. A big supermarket can be reached very easily by
car (drive of only a few minutes); it is found on the road that connects
Douarnenez with Quimper, on the outskirts south of the town. The wifi
worked perfectly like a charm. We did quite a few excursions by car,
both to the north and the south, and were able to explore most of
the west coast of Bretagne. Even at the beginning of September the
Atlantic was warm enough such we could go swimming. All in all,
a wonderful vacation. Thanks, Sarah!
Thanks so much for this great feedback! We really appreciate it. So glad you enjoyed your stay. All the very best, Sarah
non corrisponde alle aspettative.
Scarsa pulizia. Nonostante il casolare sia ubicato in campagna è lecito aspettarsi una condizione di igiene migliore. Sufficienti i bagni e i letti. Gravissimo problema al nostro arrivo quando, non essendo stati informati correttamente, non abbiamo trovato le chiavi, scambiate erroneamente con quelle della proprietà adiacente. Solo l'incontro fortuito con i vicini ci ha permesso di risolvere la situazione. Ringraziamo la signorina Alessandra dell'agenzia che ci ha supportato al telefono, comprendiamo che probabilmente l'agenzia e il proprietario non sono responsabili ma sarebbe auspicabile una gestione della consegna chiavi, in mancanza del proprietario, come nel nostro caso, attraverso mezzi più sicuri e modalità più controllate.
