Within an hour's drive of Morlaix, Quimper and the coast this comfortable, south-facing detached house makes a great base for exploring the Finistère region. Quiet setting near a dairy farm (50m). The property is surrounded by a garden and a pleasant gravelled area (garden furniture, bbq) which is ideal for relaxing and 'al fresco' eating. Cosy living room has a kitchen/diner (microwave) and a lounge area with a woodburner (free wood), tv (some English channels) and dvd. Shower room/wc. Utility room (washing machine). Steep, open tread stairs lead to an attic double and twin bedroom. Duvets. Travel cot, high chair, stairgate. Electric heaters. Indoor games, badminton set & dvds available. No smoking.

Carhaix has a excellent indoor/outdoor pol with waterslides, jacuzzi, sauna etc and there's also an 'accrobranche' tree adventure trail. The magical Huelgoat forest (17k) is famous for its amazing gigantic boulders that gave rise to countless legends including one that claims the rocks were chucked there by a Celtic giant. It makes a great day out for the family and best discovered by following one of the many well-kept footpaths through the woods. There is a beautiful lake here too (fishing, pedalo hire).
