“A well-equipped rural gite in a very quiet and pleasant spot.”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I can recommend the Gite de Guernevez thoroughly. The accommodation is well arranged and everything you could wish for is provided - an extensive garden with all sorts of leisure equipment, particularly suitable for a young family, a lovely outside area for relaxing and chilling. Inside, the pool and wifi are excellent and there is to, video, games console etc etc. The local beach was being used by locals, and although it is picturesque it was not recommended in August 2016 by the local council for bathing or water activities due to some undisclosed bacterial contamination discovered in the water. The stony beach was also heavily covered in seaweed so it was not as welcoming as the gite's own garden area and swimming pool.

We were very well looked after by the owner, who lives on site. She does not intrude at all, but makes you feel very welcome and offers all the advice you could wish if it is sought. The arrival instructions were particularly good and sent well in advance, so we were very easily able to find what is quite a remote and hidden property.

thank you for this beautiful comment of his stay and all the nice comments on the cottage.
It's true that there has been a polution of seawater during the stay, but it was very short and usually sea water is of good quality. Algae come and go with the Meree and it is impossible to clean the beach every day. Fortunately the amount of algae is often low on the beach and you can enjoy and swim.

“Quiet piece of paradise”
Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We spent 10 days in Bretagne for vacation, 6 adults, no kids. Lovely setting, very clean, perfectly equipped property, with beautiful gardens an indoor pool. Madame Christine was a sweetheart, very helpful regarding local information and knowledgeable in general about practical things as well as more existential matters, we arrived very late due to delays on the highway and the threat of strike, but she was very patient and kind, waited for us with a bottle of cider that we thoroughly enjoyed upon arrival.
Communication was very good and prompt. Madame Christine does not speak much English but she understands it fairly well. She is very well organized and information is also written for further instruction, in some big founders she put together for visitors.

“Fabulous house with facilities for all of the family.”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Having spent 2 great weeks in Brittany I would thoroughly recommend Gite de Guernevez. The house is beautiful and the pool and outside space is great for children. Christine the owner was really helpful and has thought of everything in terms of the equipment and facilities provided. A perfect setting for a family holiday. We hope to be back!!
