Wi-Fi available. Much as we hope you will ‘switch off’ for a relaxed holiday, we have given in and now provide this due to popular demand! The signal extends all over the house and garden.
Set within its own grounds of nearly 2 acres, the gite is an original ‘Maison de Maitre’, once at the heart of a large farming complex, on the edge of the village of Kergrist. The house is now sympathetically restored to provide a lovely large gite.
Gite with a Hot Tub
‘La piece de resistance’ is tucked away in the old farm buildings. A splendid Spa Pool, warm and bubbling, chlorine-free water treatment ensuring safe, appealing water. even for the most sensitive skins and small children. In the evenings the old stone walls are brought to life by tasteful lighting, the effect is quite stunning.
A generous entrance hall gives way to the traditional French kitchen. Unspoiled, yet accommodating all ‘mod cons’ – dishwasher, 5-burner gas cooker, microwave, massive fridge (washing machine is in the bathroom) and ample seating around a farmhouse table, making self-catering very easy. CD Player/Radio to complete the living kitchen. Cosy in the winter months, and a haven of cool in the summer within the thick stone walls. This is an ideal place to relax after a meal with a glass of wine whilst enjoying the company of family and friends.
