L’Ancrage where Driftwood and Pebbles are situated

L’ANCRAGE is situated at Kergalet which is a tiny sleepy hamlet just outside Crozon and about 6 miles from Camaret-Sur-Mer. We are under one and a half hours by road from Roscoff where the Plymouth ferry docks. There are at least two Brittany Ferries a day in summer and the crossing takes about 6 hrs. There is also Condor Ferries to St Malo. The French roads from Roscoff are good, so travelling to us could not be easier. We send all our guests a ‘how to find us’ map with your confirmation letter.
