Description

Set in 15 hectares of beautiful parkland, with centuries old trees, large banks of camelias and rhododendrons, this small and perfectly formed 19th century chateau looks out over long sweeping lawns and heated infinity swimming pool. Deer can often be seen grazing on the lawn while we eat our breakfast. We love our home and have put a lot of effort into looking after it, but please bear in mind that it is our primary residence so it is filled with our personal affairs. Inside are large high ceiling rooms beautifully furnished and decorated with all the creature comforts. We have a good sized Dolby/Blu ray cinema room and huge bedrooms. We have our own 2.7km mountain bike / jogging track and a 50m zipwire. Whilst having complete peace and tranquility we are only a few minutes from the centre of Quimper which with its historic centre is one of France's most beautiful small cities. Finistere at the far western tip of Brittany is very unspoilt and natural. The miles of rugged coastline has some of France's most stunning coastal scenery. There is a huge selection of beaches within a 20 - 30 minute drive, gourmet Michelin starred restaurants and lots of interesting places to visit in the area. Please note that the Maison de garde 300m from the chateau at the entrance to the property is rented out to tourists in the summer season, they also have use of the pool and the freedom to roam the park.

The climate in Brittany is temperate and can be temperamental, it can rain at any time of year, this is the reason it is very green and beautiful.

Reviews

Kistinic

We had the most relaxing visit to Kistinic. The house was lovely and we felt at home. If you want to unwind then this is the place. Bright and airy, but it's got that old world feel. Waking up to a relaxed breakfast and having my tea with music in the background is my idea of heaven. ”

Gorgeous and beautifully restored chateau

The hosts of Kistinic made us welcome in many ways. They generously provided wine and stocked the refrigerator with goodies for us. They corresponded with us in a way that made us feel as at home as we might be in our own house. Their “house” is a gorgeous and beautifully restored chateau –tastefully decorated, comfortable in every way and easily accessible to all the sights and treats of Quimper and the nearby towns of Guengat with its remarkable church, Locronan with its old stone houses and yummy Creperie du Temps Passe, Pont Aven – former home of Gaugin and friends, Point du Raz and Audierne with seaside café (some of the wonderful places we visited). The gorgeous grounds are full of trees, flowers and country paths to walk on. We have travelled a great deal but have never had a better time than we did at Kistinic. It was magical to stay in a chateau and pretend for a week that we lived there. All I can say is, we have traveled to all corners of the world in the 42 years of our marriage but Kistinic is by far the most outstanding residence we have had the pleasure of residing in -- and that includes the Hotel Ritz in Paris and the Gritti in Rome . Best, Dennis”

Kistinic

Our family and friends enjoyed our stay at Kistinic. The chateau is elegant and most welcoming with beautiful grounds surrounding. The gracious owners provided us with plenty of information to make our first stay in Brittany most memorable.”
