Kermarch farmhouse Lustruyen Swimming pool Lustruyen cottage

Welcome to our two lovely holiday sites situated in the heart of the beautiful countryside of Central Brittany. We offer a selection of self catering cottages / gites suitable for all ages and group sizes. Both of our sites are only 15 minutes from lake Guerlédan (the largest man made lake in Europe at 400 hectares) which offers boating, many watersports, fishing and beaches. In peak season there are boat trips and a floating restaurant. It is also only 30/40 minutes to the coast, but if you find all that too energetic. Each site has a heated (electric), fenced swimming pool, simply relax and enjoy! Kermarch is the larger site with three properties and can sleep 5-28 +cots and Lustruyen sleeps 4-16 + cots in two properties. The sites are about 10km apart.

Also in the grounds are a boules court, table tennis, large trampoline with safety net, children's swing and slide, baseball net, Little Tikes log cabin, badminton net,table football and new for 2018 a wooden fort /climbing frame.

We also have a large field that is kept cut for ball games (football, cricket and rounders) so that the young ones can play within sight but without disturbing the adults. There is plenty of room within the grounds to park cars safely.

There are 4 bars, a pizzeria and 2 restaurants in the town, a couple of banks, doctors, pharmacy and garage.

The nearest large town is 30 minutes away, Saint Brieuc which is the capital of the area and has a huge variety of shops and a hypermarket (Carrefours) Pontivy is only a 30 minute drive and has lots of different small shops, a weekly market and a Chateau open to the public.

Lustruyen

Lustruyen is set in two acres in a very quiet rural area but within five minutes of the market town of Rostrenen offering all facilities (3 supermarkets, Doctors, garage, tennis courts, bank and restaurants etc) and a weekly small general market on Tuesday mornings.

The largest lake in Brittany, Lac Guerledan and the Nantes/Brest canal are only 15 minutes away and offer many water sports including canoeing, kayaking, wakeboarding, wind surfing and water skiing as well as small sandy beaches, restaurants and boat trips along the lake in July and August.

The North and South coasts are about 50 minutes away. There are tennis courts in Rostrenen and fishing in the small rivers and lakes nearby. The roads and lanes around this area are quiet and flat and ideal for bike riding (bikes can be hired locally) with lots of designated randonees (footpaths) criss crossing the countryside. The two properties on this site, the cottage (sleeps 4/6) and the farmhouse (sleeps 10) can be rented separately or are ideal for larger family groups (max 16) who would prefer to rent both and have the pool/place to themselves.
