Longhouse, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9) near sandy beach great for families.
If you are looking for comfortable, self-catered, family accomodation then the Longhouse is the perfect place for you. This beautiful old "longère" is full of rustic charm and simplicity.
A "maison noble" dating from 1543, 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 such as pigeons, chickens, guinea pigs 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 500-yr-old, immense granite fire-place where you can still see traces of the ancient bread oven. You will find three sofas in the lounge – each with 3 places. 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 a single bed, one with a double bed and one with 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 2 single beds. 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.

About Deb Gamble
We came to France in 1996 to renovate a ruined farm complex. We have been running our gîtes successfully for 21 years and have won the village 'Flowery Garden' prize almost every year for our beautiful garden.
Deb Gamble purchased this House in 1992
Why Deb Gamble chose Saint-Jean-du-Doigt
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

La Creche was small but perfectly formed & had everything we needed. Brittany has some stunning beaches & we did have some lovely weather to enjoy them. On rainy days we went to Oceanopolis, Morlaix (beautiful buildings) & further afield to Carentec & St Brieuc (worth a visit so don't be put off by it being 'industrialised'). Beware the local supermarket doesn't open on a Sunday though & some restaurants close the odd day. Our 3 year old loved the animals & the gardens, he also loved the toys in the house.
A definate hit all round

Winter stay. It is so quiet here and especially the silence at night and the starry skies are remarkable. We liked the simplicity of the way of life and the authenticity of this region of Brittany. It was also wonderful to have an English speaking hostess to arrange trips for us as we struggled with our hopeless French. Debby looked after us perfectly and was of assistance to us many times.

Brittany for the first time and we loved it. We didn't go far because the surroundings near and in Plougasnou are magnificent. Our tips: the beautiful garden around the cottages, Plougasnou beach, Locquirec harbour and restaurants, Tuesday market in Plougasnou.

2nd January 2009......what a "Bonne Année" in Kerguélen. The house was perfect for our gang of 14. The weather was great too....crisp sunny days, bitterly cold nights but the house was very warm. Shopping and cooking for 14 was challenging but good fun. Morlaix is a stunning little town with some lovely restaurants. Looking forward to coming back. The Bright family.

If Paradise is half as nice ... From 3-10 june 06: 16 hrs a day sunshine ... deep blue see; so many lonely beaches; what a fun in our MG were the many corniches along the coast. Plougasnou is excellent as a centre for trips.
The gite is very complete and comfortable. Debbie and especially Phil are good hosts. What would be more to long for?
Our 2 week stay in Septem...
Our 2 week stay in September this year fulfilled all our expectations; the house (Longhouse) is comfortable and spacious and the garden area is safe and great for our kids, who enjoyed the animals and slide/swings etc.The area is beautiful with plenty of nice beaches and it is also very convenient to the Roscoff ferry, we will definitely be back. The house we were in is one of four together including the owners Phil and Debby’s house. For us this was a great positive as we made good use of Phil and Debby’s baby listening service and restaurant booking service! Phil and Debby are great hosts, always available to help in whatever way but not at all obtrusive. Being beside the other two houses was great too as we made good friends during the time with the people staying there.We would highly recommend Kerdalidec to anyone looking for an enjoyable family holiday.
We can arrange sea-fishing excursions for you which are very popular for catching sea bass and mackerel. Bike hire is possible at the end of our road with children's seat attachments if neccessary. There is a sailing school nearby where we can arrange sailing courses for you and your children (English spoken) and you can also hire wind-surf equipment and catamarans. There is a new surf school nearby which our recent holidaymakers loved. For those who like kayaking you can arrange to have kayaks delivered to our local beach for a day or half a day. The horse-riding centre allows you to take horses out for rides unaccompanied...they give you a map and you go off by yourselves along by the beach.
