Self catering holidays in Brittany
Since purchasing Kergudon in 2014, it has been our ambition to provide an exceptional standard and quality of self-catering holiday accommodation in Brittany. We aim to give all of our guests the comforts of home in well-equipped properties that combine French rural charm with modern practicalities and more than a touch of luxury.
This ‘home from home’ feel is achieved with high quality furnishings and fittings, kitchens and bathrooms equipped with all the facilities you would find in your own home. Wifi is accessible in each gîte as is English & French television, DVD players with a DVD and book library which can be used during your stay, and a 2-speed hairdryer which we know is all important. To further make your stay feel like home, we have some dog friendly holiday cottage / gîtes, although keep others animal free for those who suffer from pet allergies.
