As this is a cluster property, not all the equipment is in all the gites all the time. It is therefore important that the items you require are requested before arrival so that the items can be placed in your gite prior to arrival.

Indoors

The open plan ground floor layout of this bright and airy cottage is perfect for families with babies and toddlers.

The large living room has lots of seating for everyone to relax in comfort, an original granite fireplace housing a wood burner and a window seat overlooking the attractive courtyard.

The modern fitted kitchen has all the equipment needed to rustle up a quick snack or cook a full scale family meal and includes an oven/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.  

Head up the gated stairs to two lovely, rustic eaves bedrooms and a shower room. 

One double bedroom boasts wooden beams, Velux windows and wooden floor, while the other is a twin room also with Velux windows and with space for a cot.

Electric heating is available in the bedrooms if required.

Parent point:

  • The internal stairs are open tread so little people will need supervising when climbing and descending them.
  • There is no bath in this property, but a baby bath can be provided if required.

Outdoors

Step outside Gite Bleu and you'll discover a paradise for children of all ages...and plenty of places for the adults to kick back and relax.

A door from the living area opens onto a private and enclosed lawned garden with swings, a small patio furnished with a table, chairs and parasol - the perfect spot for enjoying a glass of something chilled when the children are in bed - and a brick-built barbecue.

This leads, through a secure gate, to the swimming pool and lawned play area, shared with one other gite.

The large, heated 11m x 4.5m swimming pool, usually open from early May to late September, is sure to be a hit with the children and grown-ups alike.  There's also plenty of sun loungers to make the most of the Bretton weather.

An inflatable paddling pool is available for the tiny tots and there's also a good selection of pool toys.

If the children are looking for other sources of entertainment then the small play barn won't disappoint.  Packed with toys including a wooden dolls' house, cooker and garage to a dressing up chest and building blocks.

The building also houses a large collection of DVDs and books for all ages as well as buckets, spades and fishing nets.

The lawned play area also has a table tennis table and badminton net. 

Store cupboard essentials and fresh products, as well as homemade preserves and baked treats, can be purchased from the honesty larder, in the old wood store off the central courtyard.

Fresh baguettes and croissants can be delivered to the gite daily - and are free on the first morning of your holiday.  There's also a selection of themed baskets of edible goodies that can be pre-ordered.

Guests are also welcome to pick herbs from the kitchen garden and it's unlikely the children will turn down an offer to help collect eggs laid by the resident hens.


Parent point:

  • There are a couple of steps at the entrance of the gite so wobbly walkers may need a hand

After a few days enjoying the delights of Gite Bleu, venture further afield to discover the beauty and history of the local area.

Gite Bleu is situated right in the centre of the historic hamlet of Rosquelfen. There are no amenities in the village apart from the early 16th Century Chapel and some lovely leafy walks round the lanes.

A five minute drive down leafy lanes takes you to the nearest village of Gouarec, where there is a wider selection of places to eat, cafes and shops, a Friday market and, for the youngsters, mini-golf. 

There is also a 25m indoor swimming pool that is open every day during the summer.

The Nante-Brest Canal runs through the village and the towpath is perfect for a safe family walking or cycling trip.

For more outdoor fun Lac de Guerledan - a huge leisure lake - is just a few minutes' drive from Hibou.  Here you can swim, fish, sail, windsurf, water ski, hire a canoe, kayak or pedalo, enjoy a lake cruise...or relax on the safe, sandy beaches.  There's also an outdoor sports centre on the lakeside.

History buffs will want to pay a visit to the restored 12th century Bon Repos Abbey in nearby Saint-Gelven.  There are regular contemporary art exhibitions and a farmers' market on Sundays between March and October. 

The magical sound and light show, every August, recounts Brittany's history from Neolithic times to the Revolution and features hundreds of actors, scores of dogs and horses and ends with a parade of 500 flaming torches and a firework display.

Further away, but well worth the trip, is the medieval town of Dinan, about an hour-and-a-half from Gite Bleu.  The town is one of the best preserved in the region with pretty cobbled streets and half-timbered houses. 

There's also art galleries and craft shops, a 13th century castle housing the town museum and an attractive port with waterside restaurants.  If you're feeling energetic, climb the 158 steps to the top of the clock tower for an amazing view...Mont Saint Michel can be seen on a clear day.

The beautiful Pink Granite Coast - so-called because of the colour of its rocks - is also well worth discovering.  One of the most beautiful stretches of Brittany's coastline, it is famous for its pretty bays and rock pools - perfect for sandcastle building, paddling and crabbing.

If, after a day's exploring, you fancy a romantic evening in one of the local restaurants then Gite Bleu's Hosts will be happy to babysit free of charge.
