Koumkinvi is  a centre for accommodation, events, short courses and workshops in Northern Brittany.  The heart of the small complex is our beautiful ancient house and grounds which sit in a sheltered valley leading up on the mountain and down to the ancient Abbaye du Relec.  Surrounded by nature you are free to take in the gardens, large pond and surrounding wood or take one of the many waymarked paths to explore the stunning moorlands and secret sunken tracks. 

We offer accommodation year long and hold house concerts with local and international musicians from time to time as well as running longer residential courses and retreats.  Take a look at our events page for details. Our hospitality is legendary, and if you are resident we offer a wonderful menu of locally produced, mostly organic produce, always in good company.

 Koumkinvi is in a tiny hamlet19 km from the bustling town of Morlaix  and 25 minutes from the Northern coast with its miles of gorgeous beaches, coastal path and tidal creeks. 

 There is no passing traffic and nothing  but owls will disturb your nights.  

  We are 30 minutes from the port of Roscoff, and Quimper and  Brest are  35 minutes away. The TGV station at Morlaix has trains direct from Paris.

Spending time in this tranquil corner of Brittany, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of modern life will lift your soul, replenish your spirit and fill your heart.  Whether you come alone or as part of a group, spend the day or stay the week, your experience here will be enriching & unforgettable. 

We run the centre on principles of sustainability & international cooperation, where cultural exchange forms an integral part of your experience. All our short courses & retreats use French and English.
