Brittany Holiday Rentals – BR0015 Le Petit Nid From £285/week

Brittany Holiday Rentals – Summary

Situated on the westernmost tip of Finistère, Penn al Lann Garo lies at the end of a private country lane, just five minutes drive from the unspoilt rugged coastline and quiet sandy beaches famous in this part of France.

Today the farm’s original outbuildings have been sympathetically restored and converted to form three completely private, luxury self-contained Brittany holiday rentals; La Crèche, La Grange and Le Petit Nid.

Known as Pays d’Iroise (Land of the Estuaries) the area suits all holiday makers whether you enjoy; surfing, diving, sailing, windsurfing, horse riding, cycling, bird-watching or simply building sandcastles and snoozing on beautiful beaches.  The gîtes are ideally situated for visiting the islands of Ouessant, Molène and Sein or exploring the picturesque Abers (estuaries).

The bustling medieval market town of St Renan with its famous Saturday morning market is just five minutes drive away.

So pack up your bucket and spade and come and discover!

Brittany Holiday Rentals – Description

The former stables of La Grange, Le Petit Nid, have been sympathetically renovated into luxury yet quirky accommodation, full of comfort and charm for two adults and two children.

Retaining many of the building’s original features, including the huge iron horseshoes embedded into the walls as tying posts, Le Petit Nid offers a jewel of a hideaway.

Step into the downstairs living room and you’ll be immediately taken with the stylish yet child-friendly feel, stripy seaside sofas, a Jotul wood burning stove and discreet TV and DVD with UK satellite.

The galley style kitchen has every mod con and the antique cherry dining table, which seats four, has views across the gardens to the open fields beyond.

Climb the narrow stairs to the main bedroom with its comfy cherry-wood sleigh bed then step through into the children’s room with its set of bunk beds and seaside decoration.

The bathroom, which is across the landing, has a shower, WC and basin.

In the garden of Le Petit Nid you’ll find an all year round BBQ cabin based on the concept of a Scandinavian Reindeer hunter’s cabin, which provides a spectacular setting for an unforgettable dining experience, whatever the weather.

Decorated inside with luxurious sheepskin rugs, striking Viking sculptures and reindeer antler. The cabin is lit at night with 100s of tiny fairy lights and candles and is designed with comfort and luxury in mind.  It exudes a certain mystical magic as you feel the warmth of the fire watching the flames flicker as you grill and dine at your leisure.

The BBQ Cabin can be rented out depending on availability – guests staying in Le Petit Nid have the sole use of the BBQ cabin during their stay.
