    Thanks for a wonderful holiday! The Wellhouse has been the perfect place to relax and unwind and also a great base for exploring this beautiful area. We’ve enjoyed exploring along the coast in both directions – so many beautiful beaches and villages. The walks around Locquirec and Beg ar Fry were highlights as was our day out to the Isle de Batz; definitely worth a visit. All in all a lovely holiday and just what we both needed.

    Thank you for a wonderful stay here in Plougasnou. The girls loved their bedroom in the Wellhouse and the huge garden. It was lovely for us to relax in the sunshine while they played. Isabel loved helping Debby to feed the animals. We’ve had great weather on the whole and enjoyed the beach at Plougasnou. The aquarium at Brest was brilliant on our one really rainy day.The little town of Tregieur is worth a visit. Lovely to potter round and then have a crèpe in one of the cafés. On the way home we stopped at Locquirec. Very pretty harbour and had a delicious meal at La Presqu’ile. Thank you Debby for being such a welcoming host;

    A wonderful place where we spent a couple of relaxed weeks in Sept 09.

    The Creche was very comfortable with many cosy evenings being spent entertaining ourselves in front of the log burner.

    The weather was generally very good so we enjoyed many long walks along the beautiful coastline, sea canoeing round the islands and headlands and cycling over the rolling countryside.

    We thought the location was excellent being close to local facilities with a very refreshing uncommercialised feeling but also with good accessibility to the major towns and roads to go further afield.

    Wouldn’t hestitate to recommend the Gite as we had a terrific holiday. Thanks!!

    Nous avons passé quelques jours à Kerdalidec avec nos 4 enfants pendant les dernières vacances de la Toussaint et nous avons été ravis de nos vacances.
    Nous avions loué la Longère ce qui nous a permis d’avoir chacun notre espace. Les enfants ont joué dans le jardin en toute tranquilité et ils ont été contents de nourrir les différents animaux.
    Nous nous sommes promenés et avons découvert la région et ses très beaux paysages sauvages.
    Vacances reposantes et vivifiantes, gîte accueillant et plaisir de belles soirées au coin du poêle. Peut-être manque t il une télévision pour les longues soirées d’hiver?

    Debby –

    We could not have been more pleased with our stay. We arrived looking for a haven from work and urban living and we quickly became happily ensconced in the Wellhouse, which was warm and cozy. We took long walks and enjoyed exploring the coastline and some of the neighboring villages, while luxuriating in the peace and quiet of our nights. On our last evening in Plougasnou, we ventured out for dinner at La Terre Neuve, and had the entire restaurant – and the charming hostess – all to ourselves. It was a treat!

    Thank you for creating this lovely spot – and for our lovely holiday.

    Spent a lovely week in august in the Wellhouse. Everything was there to make it a complete and relaxing holiday for us. Interesting places to visit around the village. Especially the coastal area! Thank you, Debby for your kind hospitality.

    Hi Debbie,
    A note of thanks to you for your hospitality and graciousness during our stay in the Creche last week. We enjoyed the cottage and the beautiful towns in Brittany as well as your suggestions of interesting things to do. Would love to come back sometime in the future.

    Our two weeks holiday in Kerdalidec were most enjoyable. We were comfortable and relaxed in The Creche. Lots to see and do locally. Walks, beaches, markets, food. Very convenient boulangerie(5 minutes on foot). Superior cafe-bookshop in Market Place (lovely freewheeling back on Debbie’s bike!).

    5th – 12 th March 2011 …..Deborah we thank-you for the lovely bottle of Bretagne cider. Our children aged six and eight loved to play in your marvellous garden and therefore did not want to go hiking along the coastal path! We had perfect weather. Without a clock in the Crèche and no TV we lived simply “La vie Française”. We taught our children to make ham and eggs. Tom wanted to make this menu for you but he ate all the ham and eggs himself. Perhaps some time he will make some ham and eggs for you. Our daughter loved the flowers in the neighbourhood especially the camellias and narcissi. The animals were also very important for the children. They even wanted to buy some french bread for the sheep, rabbits and pigeon.

    Grandfather found his youth sentiment back in this house. He came over from Roumania to Holland to go with us to France on holiday. The wood stove was very good and we did not have any cold at all. Next time we will come again with lots of family and friends to use the big 5 bedroom house. The children have already chosen who will come with them!

    Nous voilà rentrés après une semaine de détente et de découverte à Kerdalidec. Tout nous a plû : l’accueil, le cadre, the Wellhouse avec son joli jardin, le pigeon orphelin qui se croit un lapin, les plages et le grand choix de beaux coins à visiter…
    Merci, Debby – nous espérons revenir!

    Sept 2011 – This was our 2nd stay at the Creche and it was as relaxing, warm and cosy at we remembered it. No television and just peace and quiet is such a tonic. The location is terrific for many interesting days out with loads of beautiful coastline to ramble along. The local markets are really good whilst still feeling very uncommercial. Thanks so much Debby for your invaluable advice on places to visit and interesting things to do. Hope to see you again soon when we need our batteries re-charging! Take care, Alex and Andrew Brown – Devon, England

    We zijn een weekje in The Crèche op vakantie geweest met onze dochter van 12. We hebben het fantastisch gehad. Het huisje was heel comfortabel met een heel prettige , besloten prive tuin. Deborah Gamble heette ons hartelijk welkom en kwam zo af en toe met leuke tips voor festivals in de buurt. De omgeving is heerlijk relaxed en weinig toeristisch. Twee goede stranden vlakbij.
    Rondom het huis waren er de paarden, kippen en geiten, en in de gezamenlijke tuin konden we badmintonnen, pingpongen en voetballen. Onze dochter heeft haar Engels geoefend met de Amerikaanse gasten in herhuisvest naast ons. Het weer was goed. Kortom: een topweek.
    Het enige dat we hadden onderschat is de afstand vanuit Nederland: een flinke rit!

    In ieder geval een aanrader voor zowel gezinnen als stellen.

    We had a wonderful time staying in the Long House with our family. Etta can’t stop talking about the bunk beds! We loved that there were books and toys, bikes, a slide and swings. Your place makes for an easy and relaxed time with the children – which is saying something with very young ones! We loved walking to town for our daily croissants, visiting all the markets, and walking to St. Jean du Droit. We really enjoyed being able to wander the markets looking for goodies for dinner, and having the time to cook while the children played in the garden with their grandparents. The coastal towns are beautiful, and there’s plenty to see just a short drive from the house. A lovely family holiday. Thank you for being such a warm and welcoming host. Etta is still asking when we can visit again.

    Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans votre gîte (11 personnes). Nous avions la place qu’il nous fallait, très fonctionnel, très calme un vrai nid douillet !! Nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous.

    Le poële a été très apprécié et chauffait toute la maison (le bois étant fourni c’était l’idéal). Nous avons pu bien cuisiner pour tout ce petit monde .

    Les chambres sont spacieuses et authentiques.

    A renouveler bien évidemment. De plus, nous avons pu effectuer de belles ballades car la région en vaut la peine.

    Je vous dis peut-être à bientôt.

    Je vous remercie encore pour votre charmant accueil.

    Un énorme merci pour cette belle semaine en Bretagne!
    Un accueil généreux, une maison chaleureuse, un pays plein de richesses, une pause entre amis qui restera dans nos mémoires.
    Toute ma petite famille se joint à moi pour vous remercier à nouveau; les enfants envoient aussi une petite caresse à Easy et aux lapins!!!

    The “crèche” is a wonderful place for little children! The private garden is perfect because they can’t run away or to have dinner in the sun because you need to stay home 🙂
    Laughed very much with the goat of the neighbours, her “voice” is .. special.

    Of in het nederlands, een heerlijke plek om met kinderen te zitten, afgesloten privé-tuin, dicht bij verlaten stranden, beestjes in de gemeenschappelijke tuin, lekker relax, buiten seizoen heb je niet veel restaurants die open zijn, maar gelukkig schijnt de zon tot ‘s avonds laat in je eigen tuin..

    een superplek om met kleine kinderen te zijn! Een afgesloten tuin geeft rust 🙂 Buiten seizoen zijn er niet veel restaurants open, maar gelukkig schijnt de zon tot ‘s avonds laat in je tuintje. Diverse toffe stranden in de buurt, maar vooral veel rust en ruimte. En een hilarische geit bij de overburen ..

    We spent a week here in October 2014. We were a large group of five families, so we stayed in the Long House and the Creche, which accommodated us all comfortably. This is a great place to stay for families with children (we had 7 children in our group, ranging from 11 months old to 14 years old) and there were plenty of games, toys, books, and activities to entertain them all. The houses come equipped with high chairs, cots, stair gates, baby bath and even a potty, so we didn’t need to take any of those things with us. The Long House is spacious, we all ate meals together around the huge kitchen table, which means that all 10 adults and the 7 children could fit around it, which was amazing! The nearby beach is wonderful, it is perfect for kids, very safe, with lots of rock pools for them to explore. We couldn’t have asked for a better location. We highly recommend Les Gites de Kerdalidec.

    Depuis notre réservation, nous avons été enchantés du sérieux et de la grande courtoisie de la propriétaire, cela s’est vérifié lors de notre séjour. La Crèche tient ses promesses : le repos offert par son jardin privatif bien abrité du vent, le charme d’une authentique maisonnette bretonne, la literie de qualité comme l’équipement complet sont au rendez-vous. Surprenante peut-être, l’absence de télévision est un réel bonheur pour retrouver les vraies valeurs en famille, lire ou profiter du jardin. La proximité de la côte et du centre ville sont des atouts et les buts de promenades ne manquent pas. Merci, Madame, d’avoir rendu cette parenthèse si agréable.

    We are a young family from St George UT USA. We are traveling around the world for 7 months with our 2 little boys. We came to stay with Debbie {in the creche} at the beginning of this adventure in March.
    We hoped that staying on a farm type property would make it easier to ease our boys into traveling in France. It worked!! They were in heaven. We all absolutely fell in love with the area, the apartment and with “Gramma Debbie”. She was so familiar to us that my 2 year old instantly started calling her grandma.
    Her place was clean, comfortable and so cozy. We instatly made it our own. Perfect location as a base camp for the week as well. We visited Normandy and Omaha Beach, Bayeux, Morlaix, Mont St Michel, and Oceanopolis in Brest. We saw it all!!
    Thank you so much for your hospitality. We consider you a dear friend now. We will absolutely be back!!
