Situated on the westernmost tip of Finistère, La Crèche de Penn al Lann Garo
lies at the end of a private country lane, just five minutes drive from the
unspoilt rugged coastline and quiet sandy beaches famous in this area of France.
Known as Pays d'Iroise (Land of the Estuaries), the area suits all holiday
makers; surfing, diving, sailing, horse riding, cycling, walking, bird-watching
or simply building sandcastles and snoozing on the beautiful beaches. The
cottage is ideally situated for visiting the islands of Ouessant, Molène and
Sein or exploring the picturesque Abers (estuaries).
The bustling medieval market town of St Renan is just five minutes drive away.

the purpose built BBQ shelter. Behind the gîte is a boules area and in a shady
corner you’ll find swings, slides and a climbing frame for the more energetic
members of the family!
La Crèche has its own mini flock of hens, which you can feed and collect the
eggs (for your own use) or we can do this for you, a treat for most children. We
can't accept pets but along with the chickens, our pigs, and lambs (in season)
will entertain animal-lovers.

your freshly baked morning croissants. Or burn a few extra calories and cycle
down to the port of Argenton (about 15 minutes by bike) where you can enjoy a
coffee in the local bar whilst deliberating over the days patisseries.
