What some of our guests say:
June 2018 - "you would be hard pressed to find a better holiday cottage is perfect,with everything you could wish photographs don't do it justice. we booked here to fish the nantes/brest canal just outside your front door.i was not sure what to expect from the fishing,as it was hard to find any info about the trust me it's the chopped worm and feeder,or on the pole it's bream galore to 5lb+ along with roach,hybrids,and a bonus grass carp at 17lb for my wife. if you are going on a family holiday,and your an angler you must sneak some fishing gear in the car you won't be disappointed,and your less than 100 meters from the family. as for Derek & Margaret they are a lovely couple,helpful and friendly."
September 2016 - "My wife and I have just returned from our first ever visit to Brittany and I think we both agree that Kerneatreat le petit is a fantastic place to stay. Location to Roscoff ferry port is ideal and easy to get to, we couldn't belive how quiet the roads were. If you want peace and tranquility to get away from it all this is the place to stay. The setting is fantastic nestled among pine trees about a 100 metres from a beautiful canal with towpath stretching for miles and miles making it ideal for cycling and walking. The gite itself was ideal for us both just to sit back and relax but also visit some amazing places. Everything you need is supplied by Derek and Margaret the owners who are so helpful and friendly but not intrusive. Our visits included Huelgoat, a must see medieval village with a walk that's full of myth and legend. Whilst you there visit the little bakery in the village next to the supermarket in the corner, the Baguette and the tea was the best we had all week with friendly service. Concarneau is a must see as well especially the Ville Close with its little gift shops and places to eat. About a mile up river is Pont de Roy and a restaurant and pizzeria where we celebrated our 23rd anniversary with a lovely meal. The owners were so helpful with the menu here as well. Overall I give Kearneatret 12 out of 10 and I know I'll go back there to see some more of the area as there is so much to do."
August 2015 - "The house suited us and our young children very well. The kids loved the splash pool and being able to wander up the lane blackberrying. It feels very secluded, yet is just next to a beautiful canal where we spotted kingfishers, herons, lots of frogs and crickets. We did lots of walks from the house, as well as daytrips to Carnac and the coast, and ate outside every night watching the swifts. Felt very lucky to have happened upon it on Tripadvisor."
July 2015 - "We have many cottages, in France, and there is always room for improvement, however Le Petite was near to perfection. A truly beautiful location, wonderful surroundings, with peace and relaxation by the bucket load. The cottage was characterful, well equipped, beautifully appointed, upstairs toilet and bathroom, comfortable beds, furniture, bedding etc all of good quality. The garden is beautiful attracting wild birds. And at the end of the garden are excellent walks. We would highly recommend a stay here"
The Brittany region
Châteauneuf-du-Faou is in Finistère, Brittany in the North West corner of France. It is a small town of about 4000 inhabitants with a full range of amenities, e.g. supermarkets, banks, doctors, dentist, bars, restaurants, creperies and pizzeria. It is set above the Nantes-Brest canal and the Hyeres and Aulne rivers which provide a huge amount of entertainment for visitors. At the Penn ar Pont leisure centre you can also hire a range of bikes and boats, i.e. kayaks, canoes, pedaloes or go on the passenger boat up the river.
Music Festivals - there are frequent music festivals throughout the summer to enjoy, as well as a sensational Jazz Festival which occurs on the banks of the River Aulne, a truly magical setting. The Les Vieilles Charrues Festival in Carhaix in July is a must for contemporary music lovers too. The Bout du Monde festival in Crozon in early August also attracts top names.
Golf - there are a number of excellent golf courses in Finistere, the nearest ones situated at Carhaix 15 miles, Brest 40 miles and Golf de Cornouaille at Foret Fouesnant, near Quimper.
Finistere is loved for its mild climate, unspoilt beaches, its traditional Breton culture and breath taking scenery, making it an ideal holiday destination for families and experienced travellers alike.
Day Trips - Château de Trévarez which overlooks Châteauneuf-du-Faou. Oceanopolis in Brest, rated one of the best aquaria in the world, is a great family day out 50 minutes away. Nature lovers staying in Châteauneuf-du-Faou are spoilt for choice for day trips. The magnificently natural Ile d'Ouessant, forms part of the Armorique Nature Reserve which encompasses many of the smaller islands off the Finistere coast.
The interior of Finistere also claims some beautiful locations. There are many circular walks in the area around Châteauneuf-du-Faou, during which you will almost certainly stumble across one of the amazing pre-historic sites which adorn the region. The medieval town of Quimper has ancient buildings, including its imposing cathedral, modern shops and a variety of art galleries and museums.
Beaches - if you head north to the pink granite coast, west to the beaches of the Baie de Douarnenez, from Crozon round to Douarnenez, or south to Benodet, Beg Meil, Concarneau or Pont l'Abbe, there is plenty on offer to keep you entertained. One of the nearest is Pentrez Plage with a 2.5 kilometre flat sandy beach plus shops and cafes. The Sunday Times ranked Pentrez Plage in their top 20 beach holidays in Europe: “If it's rock pools, foaming surf and acres of white sand you ache for, then point yourself towards Brittany. One of the prize spots is Pentrez Plage, on the huge, sweeping Baie de Douarnenez — the kind of beach where you can kick footballs, hunt for crabs and fly kites. Backed by high cliffs pockmarked with caves, Pentrez has safe shallows for tots, as well as high-adrenaline sports such as sand-yachting and speed-sailing.” We recommend eating at the creperie at St Come, just 800 metres from the beach, where there are over 580 (!) varieties of galette to choose from.
