The Gatehouse - Kistinic
Kistinic, 235 Route de Guengat, 29000 Quimper,
The art of good living is no book title, it's this charming stone cottage gatehouse in the heart of Brittany. Built in the 19th century to serve the fairytale château (pictured above), the cottage's young interior belies its history. A luxurious minimalism is on display here, with a good dose of joie de vivre thrown in. Emerging from indulgent bedding and stepping onto polished wooden floors is a beautiful way to start the day, as is bathing in a spacious bathroom with natural stone flooring. Claire and Andrew love it when families stay – and this cottage is made for easy living, with its uncluttered, glass-chandeliered living area and its smartly equipped kitchen. Wonder, too, at the setting... No surprise to learn that Claire once researched locations for television productions. Run reckless through the rhododendrons – as the azaleas and camellias do – growing among enough woodland and lawns to cause delusions of grandeur from your bedroom window. Children will love the shared play area, the family's infinity pool – and the zipline in the woods! Historic Quimper is close.
