We are a family of four and this was our first stay at le contre temps. We certainly weren't disappointed and it lived up to the excellent reviews I'd read on tripadvisor. Alain and Josette did everything to make us feel at home. They were extremely hospitable throughout our stay and were there to greet us on our arrival and... More

We had such an enjoyable stay last year we booked another 4 nights this summer. Everything was as before, Josette and Alain are great hosts and ensured we had everything we needed. Breakfasts were good quality and always with home-made cakes (or 'Mad-House' or 'House-maid'!!! (in-joke).....) The rooms are furnished with comfortable and contemporary furniture and it is lovely to... More

Peaceful and friendly place.. Not crowded because it has only four rooms, nicely furnished and practical, surrounded by a beautiful garden and well kept by a nice couple... Location is satisfactory just like everything else... You will definetly enjoy your stay and will find it easy to recommend, just like I did... Price is also very reasonable, but be careful... More

This lovely and spacious property is modern and comfortable. We stayed in Arpege which is the suite. Very well furnished and immaculately clean. The owners Josette and Alain are very welcoming, provide fantastic breakfasts with the best ingredients and always a freshly baked Breton speciality cake! We were there for our son's wedding in Penestin and took the place over.... More

We stayed here on the first night of our European road trip, due to its proximity to Roscoff. It's situated in a lovely village and has ample secure parking. We ate in a lovely restaurant in the village (moules et frites) and enjoyed a pleasant stroll back to le Contre Temps where we enjoyed the best nights sleep we'd had... More

This wonderful ultra-contemporary house was the perfect B & B for a relaxing break in this interesting part of Brittany. Hosts Alain and Josette made us feel totally at home and were very helpful with suggestions of outings etc. We were able to borrow bikes (no charge) which was a great way to see the surrounding river, sea and country...

We stayed 2 nights whilst touring Brittany on our bikes. The room was spacious. Modern, bed very comfortable, bathroom well appointed. Very nice breakfasts and despite language difference, Alain helped with advice on the area. Would recommend to others.

We went to the Contre Temps because of the good ratings on Tripadvisor and we were not deceived. We had a bright, modern room with an excellent bed, a big private terrace, a bathroom with a nice window, a separate toilet and a big shower. There is ample, secure parking in the courtyard. Next to our room there was a... More

a very good place to enjoy the beaches and the coast of Brittany (10min by feet) in a relaxing atmosphere and in an authentic village (not too touristic). With the very good Josianne cooking for the breakfast and Alain advices for the ballads.

The location is stunning - not spectacular but so close to wonderful beaches and character. A wonderful cafe nearby with live jazz twice a week. Not twee but great atmosphere and very comfortable. Lovely river walks and so close to the best moules in France.
