Unlatch your gate to the walled garden, a ‘petit parc’ bursting with shrubs, trees and lush lawns. Dog lovers will fall in love with Edmond, who may well choose to accompany you on a stroll.
As for the three-storey gîte, it sits in the east wing. Its front terrace, screened from the owners’ by abundant greenery, is a perfect summer spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Head for the Saturday market in Morlaix (4km) and bring your spoils back here… to the kitchen with its sparkling pots and crocks, welcome basket, and stylish chandelier. You’ll love the cobbled streets of Morlaix, its colourful half-timbered buildings and its old river-port feel. Head off for white sandy beaches, craggy coves, and many tiny islands to explore.
Top places to eat out? The much-loved Crêperie L’Hermine in Morlaix, and the friendly L’Hôtel de Carantec, with starry tasting menus and a stunning sea view.
