“I sound like a record that has got stuck!”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Well. What can I say that hasn't been said already by previous guests? This is almost certainly the best equipped gite/cottage that I have stayed in for a very long time. Richard and Claire were very helpful and charming and I rather wish that we had more time to get to know them.

I have just thought of something that wasn't excellent. The weather! But there again, Richard and Claire don't have any control over that. Irrespective, we still got out and about and visited many stunning beaches and towns in the area. It really is a beautiful part of the country. In fact, we spent quite a lot of time looking in estate agents' windows........draw your own conclusions from that.

I know that many couples that have stayed at Penlan Gites have come back again and I would like to think that may well be joining their ranks at some time in the future.

Thanks again, Richard and Claire.

“Peace & Tranquility in Brittany!”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Fantastic stay in this rural gite. Richard and Claire have done a wonderful job developing this gite in idyllic surroundings. Sitting outside with just the sounds of the countryside was a real treat for us Londerners!

Make sure you have a car for exploring the region, traditional towns and villages, beautiful coastline, great beaches; all there the be explored.

For those looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday in rural France, we cannot recommend it enough!

“Perfectly located, space, comfort and super hosts”

My girlfriend booked for us here. Booking for a gite remotely always comes with surprise. In that case the surprise was excellent!

What you read in other reviews is true, the welcome is very nice, with a bunch of presents to ensure you start your vacation right :)

The spot is really well located in the 'middle' of Bretagne which means you are never more than an hour area from any coast. Parking is no problem at all. You find also all the stores you need 5-10 min away by car.

We got the chance to be hosted in both gites. Both are VERY roomy. They are perfect for a couple with no kids.

The gites are HUGE, everything is perfectly clean and the hosts are really making sure you will miss nothing to enjoy your stay. As much as I like to review bad places to make sure the owners get what they deserve, I *really* want to report this place as a great one.

Native english speakers, you will have no problem in english with the owners.
You will not find much plastic there, things are made of stone and wood. However, you WILL find WIFI access if you wish and the comfort of a microwave, TV and satellite.

The beds are very good and the showers simply awesome. During our stay, we got a few nice surprises thinking "Did they think about providing this or that?", well, we checked out the drawers and it was all there.

The hosts told us they want to make a place where we would feel home, They succeeded very well. Not only we adopted our home for the week very quick but we enjoy our neighbours, present when we needed without being too intrusive.

“The return visit was just as delightful as the first.”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

After a two year hiatus, we returned to France, Finistre, and Penland Gites; each was as rewarding as it was two years ago. Richard is the consummate host, providing transitional needs such as jams, wine, bread for the first night along with his ability and willingness to listen to what one might enjoy and providing information enabling one to do so. The gite is quite comfortable, fully equipped, set in a rural environment that provides peace without compromising ready access to all one might want to do in Western Finistre. We are already laying plans to return with friends for more coastal hikes at some point in the future.
