In the bucolic heart of the country, yet close to white sand beaches, the 17th-century cider farm has become a heavenly B&B. Elegant bedrooms are fresh and calming, one with its own decked terrace; the garden is prolific, Anne is creative and humorous, breakfasts are exceptional: wake to muffins and hedgerow jams. Tempting confections are displayed in glass jars for guests to enjoy, zinc pots are stuffed with flowers, bathrooms are for lingering in, sparkling windows frame the fields. Visit the fishing boats in Ste Marine harbour and the grand shops of Quimper, set off for the islands. Seafood restaurants abound.
