Frequently Asked Questions

Please find here below, a selection of frequently asked questions from our guests who come to stay in our holiday houses in Brittany and that will help you make the right decision!

General Questions

Are you a bona-fide company?

We are fully registered with the French authorities to provide furnished holiday rentals, yet we are just a small husband and wife business and we strive to keep the personal touch.

Do you have comfortable beds?

Yes! Our guests think so! We only use top quality mattresses, and white Egyptian cotton bed-linen.

Are your kitchens fully equipped?

Yes, we hope that we have thought of everything, and all appliances are modern and of good quality.

How green are you?

We cannot claim to be 100% eco/green, but we do make efforts where possible. We try to source all our materials and furnishings locally, and try to ensure that they are natural products. All of our houses use logs grown at Kistinic, thus carbon neutral and renewable. All of our houses have an energy contract to supply 100% green, renewable electricity.

Which is the right house for me?

A commonly asked question that is difficult to answer! It really depends what type of person you are, and what you are looking for in your holiday. Grand parc, pool, city? Kistinic. Atlantic, manor house, comfort? Ty Traez/Ty Bili. Waves, beaches, cosy cottage? Lostmarch.

Do you have any more photos?

Yes, have a look at the gallery

Where can I get the latest Frenchberry news?

Regular updates and new photos can be seen on our blog

Ty Traez and Ty Bili

Are the photos of the beaches on the website close to the house?

Yes. St Tugen is less than 3km away, Baie des Trepasses 8km, and Plage de Theolen 8km. There is also a nice sandy beach at Primelin itself, less than 1km away.

Are the beaches safe for children?

On calm days, yes, although care should always be taken. If there are waves you may prefer St.Evette beach at Audierne (5km) which is very safe.

Is there a fireplace at the house and can we use it?

Yes, and there are ample dry logs free of charge.

How far is the nearest restuarant?

There are 2 at Primelin, about 1km away, and a much greater choice at Audierne (5km)

Are there any shops nearby?

Yes, there is a good size supermarket in Primelin, less than 1km away. Many more, and a market, at Audierne.

Is there wifi internet access?*

Yes* but not the fastest connection, you are at the end of the line.

Kistinic

How far is the gatehouse from Quimper?

Just 3km from the centre.

Are there any shops nearby?

There are several convenient shops just 2km away at the entrance to Quimper, including bakers, fishmongers, chemist, mini-supermarket, etc.

Are any open on Sunday?

Yes, in the morning.

How far is the pool from the gatehouse?

A short walk down the garden, about 300m.

Is the pool heated?

In general the pool is heated from Mid May until mid September, sometimes outside of these dates weather permitting.

Do we have full access to the park?

Yes, you are free to roam wherever, whenever!

Lostmarc’h

How far is the house from the sea?

About 300m. It is the closest to the sea in the village.

How far are shops and restaurants?

Morgat, a large seaside town is only 3km away, and Crozon 5km, where you will find a large choice of shops and restaurants. Some may be open on Sundays, depending on season.

Is there wifi internet access?*

Yes*.  * We cannot be held responsible for faulty internet connections or lack of compatibility due to the inherently unreliable nature of this technology! Also when there is a problem we are afraid the solutions are not always immediate.
