Les Gîtes de Kerdalidec are situated on the north coast of Brittany, 40 minutes east of Roscoff, just outside the sea-side village of Plougasnou. Our three child-friendly cottages are ideal for family groups of 12, 5 or 4 people and are ideal for family beach holidays or couples holidaying on their own. They are also fully heated for Winter breaks. We are baby-friendly. We have no swimming-pool because we are only 2 minutes drive from clean, sandy beaches and as we cater for families with small children, we prefer to avoid any risks.

The group of cottages which is called “Les Gîtes de Kerdalidec” is an old Breton farmstead built of pink granite, just outside the village of Plougasnou, surrounded by fields of maize and artichokes and only two kilometres from a picturesque sandy beach. Two hundred years ago, the Longhouse was the bakery for the village and still contains the massive granite fireplace and arched stonework of the bread oven. The village is only ten minutes walk and there 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. Babies and children are on the whole welcomed in French restaurants.
We have three gîtes to rent, all renovated to a high standard and very comfortably furnished for Summer or Winter holidays. The Longhouse which has a Saturday changeover, is the left-hand half of the main building, and can accommodate up to twelve guests in five bedrooms. We normally say it is suitable for three couples and their children. It has central heating and a wood burning stove. The Crèche (photo up on the right) which has a Saturday changeover, has two bedrooms to sleep two to five guests and also has a wood-burning stove.
The Wellhouse (photo up on the right) which has a Saturday changeover, can sleep two adults and two young children in its two bedrooms. All the houses have Internet access and each house has its own private garden with garden furniture and BBQ and direct access to the huge shared garden. Only the Crèche has a completely enclosed private garden. We live on site next to the Longhouse and are very happy to help you with any problem you have and with advice on places to visit etc.
Kerdalidec is perfect for children and has a play area with swings and a slide in the shared part of the garden. There are also animals to feed such as chickens, ducks, rabbits and sheep. Many children have cried when they had to go home and leave the rabbits. For babies we can provide cots, high-chairs and stair-gates.
Guests can relax in the beautiful gardens of the property while their children play safely and for several years now the garden has won first prize in the village “Maison Fleuri” competition. No toxic chemicals are used in the garden which means it is a haven for wildlife. We have a resident green woodpecker and are often visited by foxes, mink, pheasants and very occasionally, deer. We have a couple of old bikes which guests can use to nip to the boulangerie for croissants in the morning and for those of a more adventurous spirit we can arrange horse riding, sailing courses, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, tennis and you can hire bikes and kayaks at the restaurant just at the end of our road.
New for 2012: Plougasnou’s active youth council asked the Town Hall for a play area and the very generous local council have built for them a new skate-park and children’s play area. This is only 10 minutes walk from Kerdalidec and is very popular with locals and visitors. Don’t forget to bring your skates and skate-boards!
About me: I moved to France in 1996 with my then husband and our 3 small daughters and we spent 5 years lovingly renovating Kerdalidec and creating the prize-winning gardens. I am proud to have created a successful business, a place where you can come and get away from the hustle and bustle of your daily lives and your children have space to run freely and safely. My aim is for you to have a perfect holiday and if there is anything I can do for you to achieve this I will be pleased to help. Read our guest comments to find out what previous guests think.
