Lovely well appointed cottage in a small very quiet hamlet.
Clean and tidy cottage with plenty of room with some nice touches. Large open area kitchen, dining, living area is lovely for keeping everybody involved and gives a nice family feeling. The garden is a large area with a mix of kept and un-kept areas. A large outside table is great for eating and talking whilst enjoying the south facing garden. The garden is not enclosed so can be difficult to keep track on young children and pets.
Would recommend this cottage, a lovely Brittany style farm house, sympathetically renovated to a high standard.
Thank you for your review. On behalf of the owner I am pleased you enjoyed your holiday at Kerbois in this lovely part of Brittany.
The website does state that the garden is enclosed as shown below:
"The garden is large with plenty of secluded area to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. It is not secured and we would therefore remind guests with young children and/or dogs to ensure they are supervised at all times."
Rustig gelegen, mooie en recent gerenoveerde vakantiewoning
Een mooie vrijstaande woning, die van vrijwel alle gemakken is voorzien. Zeer compleet ingericht. De bedden zijn prima. Het huis was goed schoon toen wij aankwamen. Een heerlijke ruime tuin, waar je de hele dag door wel een schaduwplek kunt vinden. De omgeving is zeer rustig (+/- 13 woningen in het gehucht Kerbois), maar je zit snel op een doorgaande weg en bent in 5-10 minuten bij Josselin en Ploërmel (met oa meerdere grote supermarkten).
In de omgeving zijn genoeg leuke dingen te doen: Rochefort-en-Terre (enkele jaren terug het mooiste dorp van Frankrijk), Vannes (havenstad), Erdeven (mooi strand aan de Atlantische kust) en Le-Mont-Saint-Michel.
On behalf of the owners, thank you for the review on this lovely property.
We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday in Brittany!

Displays are provided which explain the wildlife of the area in pictures and sounds. There are plenty of benches provided throughout the park as well as picnic tables and even a boules court. Also a small childrens' play area. An amphitheatre stages open air films and concerts during the summer, and look out for the water powered clock.
