We have just returned from 4 nights at the lovely Manoir de Kerdovot just outside Quimper in Brittany. It is beautifully sited in peaceful woodland/farmland right beside the historic and interesting Chapelle de Kerdevot. The magical spring is just across the fields. The whole Manoir is beautifully restored and decorated with an artist's eye for colour, our room was very comfortable and totally quiet - its easy to sleep in!! Veronique Rousset is a thoughtful and charming host. Breakfasts are French style and generous with lots of choice, individually served for each party. The Manoir is a little difficut to find first off so look out for the French local maps at the end of the country roads where each of the properties is clearly identified.
Several of the noted restaurants in Quimper close for their own holidays from middle/late September so check early that the one you want to go to is actually open on the night in question.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Hikers, anglers, photographers, sporty people, artists or merely nature-observers will spend a delightful time in the beautiful surroundings. ... more less
