Le Lodge Kerisper in Brittany
This lovely seaside accommodation is perfect for those who love the sun
Posted: 4 August 2011
There’s always a warm welcome at this bright and breezy spa-enhanced seaside stay – the owners like to make children feel at home, so there will be teddy bears waiting to greet them (and, for babies, changing mats and high chairs). Nautically flavoured interiors feature scrubbed-deck floorboards, bold red and blue stripes and framed fishing paraphernalia, and feel-at-home touches include help-yourself jars of pick ’n’ mix jelly sweets and mountain bikes to borrow. Rooms are thoughtfully laid out, and balconies and terraces backing onto the deckchair-strewn garden lawn at the back mean you can make the most of the outdoor feel of this beach house. If you fancy a soothing massage or reflexology session in the Wellness Centre, just ask the concierge to arrange babysitting with a local nanny for you; alternatively, laze by the pool while your children splash about with inflatables in the shallow end. Le Lodge Kerisper is a great place for frazzled parents to get a few days’ respite.
- Worth getting out of bed for The pavement cafés of portside perch Trinité-sur-Mer are just 100m from your front door. And if you pedal or potter a kilometre along the Quiberon coast, you’ll find some of Brittany’s finest stretches of beach; this means that a stay here is better suited to over-fives who can best enjoy the beach (and its kitesurfing, horse riding, kayaking and sand-yachting opportunities). Société Nautique de la Trinité-sur-Mer (www.snt-voile.org) in the port can organise sailing classes and boat hire, and Saint Laurent golf course is 15 minutes away.
- Best rooms On the ground floor and opening onto the garden, Suite-Apartment 16 is the perfect pick for families; with two rooms, it can take up to three extra beds and has a large child-proof terrace. Otherwise, Junior Suites have a separate bed alcove; some on the ground floor also have shady terraces. Rates: €95–€290 per room, per night, based on two sharing. Cots are provided free and extra beds can be added to rooms for €25. Breakfast, €15. Tel: 0033 (0)2 9752 8856; www.lodge-kerisper.com
