In the blink of an eye

1. In an old farm, in the bay of Cancale

« Les grands gîtes de Cancale »

Ideal for large families, the Grands Gîtes de Cancale can accommodate up to 24 people in a modern and warm atmosphere. Ostrea Lodge (14 beds) and Terra Lodge (10 beds) are in an old farmhouse featuring exposed stones, wood and natural materials. Very cosy! The bedrooms are upstairs and the living spaces on the ground floor. Some of you can prepare a meal together in the kitchen, which opens onto a large and comfortable lounge, and you can all take a seat around the large table to enjoy the meal. Cancale oysters make for a great starter, which you can collect on foot or by bike from La Houle port.

4. A villa on the water’s edge in South Finistère
