We have stayed in Alouette three times now and are looking forward to returning this year. As you approach the cottage through the local farmland, you can feel the pressures of urban living slip away.The cottage is set in rolling countryside but within easy reach of local markets, shops, woods and beaches as long as you have a car. It is as welcoming, clean and comfortable as it appears in the pictures and particularly suited to families with young to early teenage children. Each cottage has a private area to sit outside, perhaps sipping a glass of wine, watching the local wildlife or the children playing in the safe garden and orchard.The kitchen is well equipped and there is a comprehensive folder of information about local amenities and places to see as well as a DVD /video for childrens' emergency distraction if it rains!
The owners live close by and are a fount of knowledge about local culture and amenities, ideas for day trips, local festivals and events. We have particularly enjoyed walking along the River Blavet, searching the rock pools at beaches 30 minutes drive away and the local woodland adventure park. Auray, Hennebont and Port Louis are steeped in history and culture or there is the beautiful and wild coastline - something for everyone.
This is a delightful and beautifully renovated cottage buried in the heart of the South Brittany countryside - as advertised. Farming and animals abound. Although the garden is shared, the 2 patios are secluded so we were hardly aware of our neighbours. The coast is easily accessible by car so we visited Vannes, Auray, Carnac and Guidel. Graham and Roz are splendid hosts, living opposite, very friendly and helpful without imposing.
My wife and I have stayed at these gites on numerous occasions. They are just as described in the brochure - immaculate, fully equipped and very comfortable in all weathers. Privacy is assured by the thick walls between the gites and Kermarhin's rural location, perfect for country walks or bicycling on the safe and rarely used roads around the hamlet. The owners, Roz and Graham Jefferies, are delightful people and can advise on where to shop and where to enjoy the nearby beaches and seaside. I have no hesitation in recommending these gites to friends. The fact that we have been there so often speaks for itself.
Over the past three years we have stayed in Roz and Graham's Gites at Kermahin four times, both in winter and summer, and we have always left feeling refreshed and invigorated and yet utterly relaxed by our holiday. The clean and well equipped Gites and the warm and friendly welcome makes an immediate impression as does the great trouble taken by Graham and Roz to make sure that you have all that you require to make the holiday a real success. Truly, as the brochure says, all you need is food and bed linen.
Kermahin is a tiny hamlet,off the main road and is utterly peaceful . There are excellent walks on farm tracks, in the fields and in the woods and yet the wonderful beaches of South Brittany are only 30 minutes away on uncrowded roads. Graham was most helpful in lending us bikes to explore
the lovely Blavet River valley and with Roz telling us of the best places for meals at all price ranges. Their local knowledge is encyclopedic but then Roz is that rare animal an English local District Councilor!
Finally one cannot close without mentioning the animals which give such pleasure to adults and children alike, donkeys, goats large and small, cats, dogs and chickens. In summary a wonderful place for a relaxing family holiday with children but not for those seeking the bright lights on site.
We have stayed at this cottage for the last three years. The cottage is in an ideal location away from the hustle and bustle of a busy resort, yet within easy reaching distance of the coast and busier places such as Vannes, Auray and Carnac. Close by the villages of Baud and Languidic (10mins) away provide you a range of shops, bars and restaurants should you need them.
The cottage,nestled in a quiet hamlet makes it ideal for relaxation, peace and quiet. The garden and grounds make is a safe place for children to play. We have had some excellent meals in the garden, in the quiet, sun shining and the children playing. The swing and play area, in the orchard is great for young children - plus it allows them another chance to check that the goats are still ok!!
The cottage is very clean and tidy with the log fire an exceptional good utility. Roz and Graham (Owners) live in the hamlet and provide an excellent resource - better than visiting any tourist information office. They really make you feel at home and welcome and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable.
