A lovely holiday home. Clean and very well equipped. Suited us very well as we travelled with another couple and due to the lay out of the house were able to have some privacy at times. Fantastic unspoilt area. Beautiful scenery and beaches. No parking meters. Did not need to travel very far to see the area.

Very comfortable, large, clean house set in a wonderfully quiet, visually stunning location. Spent two weeks doing almost nothing, which was fantastic, our batteries needed recharging! However we could have done so much more and probably will do next time. The short sight seeing trips we did do, showed us how gorgeous the local landscape is. Some of the larger...

We stayed at Gwel Caer end May to early June 2013, our party consisting of 2 adults and 2 young girls aged 3 and 6. It was a delight to stay at a property which is even better than the description. Gwel Caer is a light, spacious, well equipped property with a good layout. The views from lounge, kitchen and...

About the neighborhood
There are many places of interest to visit, for example Oceanopolis in Brest, a vast aquatic centre, pretty villages such as Locronan and historic towns such as Quimper. Landevennec itself is very pretty, peaceful and has a small shop. There is lots of sailing from the quayside. The famous Abbey in Landevennec makes an interesting visit. Brest has museums and many shops and Oceanopolis is a huge marine aquarium.

How to get there
Our holiday home can be reached either by the budget airline Flybe into Brest airport then the property is just 1 hour by hire car from the airport. It is an easy route by motorway then a scenic country road. Alternatively by Brittany Ferries from Plymouth to Roscoff (then a pleasant 1 1/2 hour drive to the house) or from Portsmouth or Weymouh to St. Malo (then approx. 2 1/2 hours drive to the house) or Cherbourg or Caen (approx. 4 hours drive to the property) It is, of course, possible to drive from Calais perhaps stopping overnight in a place of interest such as Mont St Michel on the way but it takes about 8 or 9 hours in all travel time)
