Description from the owner
Stang Korvenn (an ancient Breton name) is a traditional stone built long house or "longere" comprising a large farmhouse and this attached but separate Riverside Cottage, which sleeps up to 5 people in 2 bedrooms. The cottage is comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a cosy country holiday in a place that is very "far from the madding crowds". The rear of the house looks directly onto the lovely river Aulne as it sweeps peacefully by. The farmhouse and gite may be rented seperately or together - please see separate listing for Riverside Farmhouse at Stang Korvenn.
There is direct access from the secluded woode...Read more
Idyllic Riverside Cottage in Brittany, France
Finistere, Brittany, France
Additional Location Information
Stang Korvenn is in the midst of the beautiful countryside and unspoilt coasts of Finistère, with activities to suit every taste (unless you're looking for noise and crowds!) Often described as similar to Devon or Cornwall in the UK (though much less crowded), you may just fall in love (as we have) with the rugged landscape and golden beaches of this inspiring part of the world. The climate is similar to the South West of England too, but with a warmer and drier summer. Winters are generally mild too.
Less than 30 minutes from the beautiful mediaeval city of Quimper, the region capital, it makes an excellent base from which to explore this truly unspoilt and inspiring part of the world.
With such variety there really is something for everyone - whether you like to visit a beach resort like Benodet on the South Coast, or any of the lovely secluded beaches on the Crozon peninsula. Even in the height of summer you can often find yourselves alone on a beach here. And no car parking charges!
Lovers of good food and wine will be spoiled for choice and the seafood is unrivalled, and as fresh as you can get. Local specialities include the famous buckwheat crepes (either savoury or sweet), and the Breton cider is delicious.
Our information pack will point you to several places of interest and recommendations, though half the fun of this sort of holiday is discovering for yourself!
The roads in this part of Brittany are delightfully empty, even in the height of summer, as they sweep through the glorious rolling countryside, perfect for motorbikes (and open top sports cars). We have a secure barn where you can park your Harley(s) or Ducati or whatever - though crime is very low in the area anyway.
Public transport is virtually non-existent, so your own independent transport is advised. There are excellent cycle routes all over Brittany and the 300+ kilometre cycle path along the Nantes Brest canal passes the house, so ideal fo a cycling holiday (we have secure bike storage on request). Plenty of room to park your car(s) at the house and gite, with separate parking areas for both.
An hour from the ferry port of Roscoff, 45 minutes to the airport at Brest, 2 hours to Dinard airport and St Malo ferry port and 3 hours to Nantes or Rennes airports. TGV train station at Quimper, less than 30 minutes away.

What Past Guests Are Saying
The cottage is very cute. It is located right off a main road which concerned me at first but it ended up not being a problem. Things were very quiet. The owners were very responsive when we had some things that we needed. We had a nice stay.
