Old stone, beams and patchwork in the bedrooms, a breakfast treat from Grand-mère each day and all run by a lovely young family

Read guest comments

The standing stones of Carnac are minutes away, beaches, coastal pathways and golf course close by. Kerimel is a handsome group of granite farm buildings in a perfect setting among the fields. Bedrooms are simple beauties: plain walls, some panelling, patchwork bedcovers and pale curtains, old stones and beams. The dining room is cottage perfection: dried flowers hanging from beams over a wooden table, a spring fire in the vast stone fireplace, breakfasts from grand-mère that promise an organic treat each day. A gentle, generous young family with excellent English, and passionately eco minded.

  • Homemade beer! We have been brewing our own craft homemade beer called La P'tite Derniere for 2 years, it seems that we are doing well!
  • Homemade apple juice: we produce a little bit more than 1000 litres of very good apple juice that you can taste as soon as you arrive.
  • Sustainability: we care about the environment and use renewable energy sources, aim to save energy and water, to reduce waste and to improve the local environment.
  • Grandmother cooks the best home made jams for breakfast.
  • We do our best to make a decent English cup of tea!
  • Note that it is possible to pay by bank transfer.

"Nicolas' quiet hospitality was the keynote for a comfortable stay. We liked the calm bedroom and slept well, enjoyed the locally sourced breakfasts and Nicolas' Breton crepes and cider for supper. We followed his suggestions for visits, walks and local restaurant recommendation, benefitting from his knowledge.We wish him well in this ecofriendly enterprise."
