Simple and Refined. A Stylish Place to Stay in Pont Aven

Kermaria River View Holiday Apartments

Once a ‘pension de famille’ for the mill workers in Pont Aven. Kermaria dates from 1850 and overlooks the River Aven. Lovingly restored to a high standard of comfort and charm, the top floor of this beautiful old house has been converted into stylish holiday accommodation for those looking for something a little different.

Light and spacious, with vaulted ceilings and views onto the River Aven.  Furnished with art, antique and upcycled furniture; comfortable beds with beautiful bedlinen, and modern clean bathrooms. This carefully designed character holiday accomodation is both generous and cosy, inspring and relaxing.

The top floor of this big old house is a flexible space which can be rented as one luxurious two bedroom 90m2 holiday apartment which takes over the whole floor, or individually as two separate self contained holiday apartments. The property has its own private entrance and terrace,

Located in a pictoresque setting, tucked into a quiet spot between the historic viaduct and the river front, and yet just a short pretty walk along the Xavier Grall and into the charming town of Pont Aven with it’s museums, galleries and excellent selection of gourmet restaurants.

Step out of the door and walk along the river path and into the woods of the ‘Bois D’Amour’ where you immediately find yourself nestled in nature, and one of the most bucolique settings in Brittany, or head off to the beach and explore the areas unspoilt and stunning coastline.

We have en EV charger for our guests use by prior arrangement. There is free public parking to the rear of the property.

‘You have created such a beautiful apartment in a very tranquil setting, which is the perfect place to set out exploring from. We can’t think of anywhere we would rather stay and look forward to coming back very soon. Jane and Roger’, UK Oct ’21

TRUE PERFECTION Some accommodations are equipped with so much taste and feeling of styling, that you would like to move in! Seven years ago we discovered a beautiful pearl on the Breton coast and now she has left for beautiful Pont Aven. Once again beautifully furnished and correct to the smallest detail. Thank you so much for having us againsweet Claire! We adore your style @communicarole Netherlands. Oct ’21

More than I could dream of. Everything I needed and much more; comfort, inspiration, beauty, joy. I found much needed rest, friendship and myself. The house is perfection and a home you created. Thank you, merci, bisous, Tessa Netherlands. Feb ’22

“Notre séjour a Pont Aven a été sublime par votre belle appartement! Raffinement dans la decoration, excellente literie, un emplacement de rêve, le Bois d’Amour, il n’y a pas mieux. Nous ne manquerons pas de recommander ce lieue magnifique a nos amis, mais avant tout, nous aimerions y revenir!” Annick et Andre Mars 22

THE MOST BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED VACATION APARTMENT WE HAD EVER BEEN TO. We were 2 couples traveling together so we took the whole unit (2 apartments). High quality furnishing, very comfortable beds with 100% cotton white bed linens and soft white towels. Kitchen well equipped with lots of dinnerware and cutlery. Everything very clean, absolutely shining. Great location: At the centre of Pont Aven with direct river view from windows. Walking trail just at your doorstep, supermarket and boulangerie within 5-8 minutes walking. Claire, home owner, lives in the lower floor and is always quick to respond to any question, weather during reservation process or while staying. We highly recommend this place and we will be happy to return! A&V. Shiran Israel June ’22

Pont Aven for distinguished travellers
THIS PLACE IS A DREAM…! Wonderfully decorated with real art (no deco kitsch), this is a stylish and quiet apartment for 2 with all amenities. Fully equipped kitchen. Perfectly clean and well groomed.
Claire has an extensive library of maps and guidebooks of the region that will offer you enough inspiration for months…! She also prepared a very useful list of Restaurants, local stores, hiking suggestions, etc.
Free public parking right in front the house. Location off the touristy, busy part of Pont Aven, yet everything within walking distance.
Should have stayed there for a month… Stefan Austria Jul ’22

“Hosts totally on the ball – responsive and helpful within a moment. The large apartment feels like you are the first person to stay. Spotless. Very well laid out in luxe style and comfort. Anything you need is available and well organized and presented. Sofa is amazing! Hear and see the river Aven gurgling below on its way through town to the sea Easy parking. Amazing find. Rare. Merci.” Judy ‘Oct 22

“On ne devrait jamais quitter Pont Aven. Ses odeurs, ses couleurs, le bruit des aiguilles de pain qui crissent sous nos pas. On ne devrait jamais quitter Pont Aven, et rester a Kermaria. Parce que entre les murs de cette grande bâtisse, on s’y sent bien, et on ressent, paisible, ce petit sentiment d’éternité. Son vue, son silence, sa decoration, l’accueil de Claire. On ne devrait jamais quitter Pont Aven, et rester a Kermaria.” Celine Nov ’22

“Trouver une halte aussi agréable est un chose rare. Merci pour votre chaleureux accueil et la beauté de votre appartement.” Genevieve Dec ’22
