The quayside village is busy in summer with water sport enthusiasts and a new boat trip service has just commenced traversing the Rade of Brest with spectacular scenery. The area is part of the protected National
Parks of France. The village of Landevennec is famous for it's ancient Abbey which makes an interesting visit.
Rental rates are fully inclusive.
The Brittany region
Our lovely apartment in situated in the quaint historic village of Landevennec on the superb Crozon Peninsula which is part of the National Parks of France. In the village the famous abbey and it's museum can be visited and this Abbey still operates. Sometimes music festivals and church services are held here. The coastal path runs through the village and meanders its way through coastal forests and dramatic cliff top scenery. The medieval City of Quimper with its quaint timber framed houses and Cathedral is well worth a visit. On a rainy day a visit to the large aquarium Oceanololis in rest is great fun and you can actually go to Brest by boat from Le Fret about 15 minutes or so from Landevennec.
Numerous sandy coves to vast sandy beaches surround the Peninsula in between the rugged cliff line and the beauty is that parking is so easy, no parking meters at all! and totally uncommercialised.
There are numerous activiities for children of all ages and the vast sandy and uncrowded beaches of the Peninusular are second to none! Great fun can be had kayaking in the sheltered waters, or sandyachting on Pentrez beach. The sheltered waters of the Bay of Douardenez provide safe bathing. From Landevennec the furthest point of the Peninsula would take no more than 25 minutes to reach.
Cliff trop walks are sensational along this coastline. Do browse the lovely landscape photos of the Crozon Peninsula on www.presquile.crozon.free.fr and click on Les plus populaires. All these places named are

The Crozon Peninsula
Here the dramatic Atlantic coast is at its most spectacular. This beautiful Peninsula, which is part of the protected National Parks of France, is truly untouched by commercialism. It is a paradise for those who enjoy uncrowded wide sandy beaches, hidden coves, water sports of every variety, spectacular cliff top walks, quaint fishing villages, fresh sea food, and is all self contained on this peaceful Peninsula – and not a parking meter in sight!
So much to see and do, here are a few suggestions:
Take a boat trip which goes from the quayside along the beautiful reaches of the Rade of Brest which is part of the National Parks of France. You will see the superb modern architecture of the new suspension bridge Pont de Terenez.

Walk along the beautiful allotted paths from the village, or have a game of tennis on the village court. (arrange in the Mairie’s office.)
The village has a small restaurant, creperie and Tourist Office (in the peak season) and general food shop.
The market square of this pretty historic town is surrounded by little shops and an interesting church, it also has a small market every day and once a week a much larger one. There are several supermarkets, doctors (who speak English) and a small hospital, vets and a Tourist Office.

You will be delighted to visit this picturesque village, with its cobbled streets and quaint old houses. Some delicious Breton delicacies in the little shops.
A little further afield by about 1 hour:
Oceanopolis is a must – the largest indoor aquarium in Europe. This can be reached by boat from Le Fret (20 mins from the house) Be careful to check the return times of the ferry.
A beautiful historic Cathedral town. The river Odet flows through the center. A wealth of shops and boutiques.
Various festivals are held in Quimper.
A little further still:
Pont Aven – a very pretty place, famous for the artists who have lived and painted there – Paul Gauguin being one of them.
A lively historic City. Visit the old town entered through an arch in the surrounding city walls. Lots of little interesting shops in the narrow streets.
Pointe du Raz
A most spectacular viewpoint especially on a wild day to watch the raging seas around this most dangerous stretch of water.
Exhausted!! – you can now relax in the garden, have a bottle of wine and barbeque and gaze at the sea.
Markets and Brocantes
The famous surfing beach of La Palou

"A perfect apartment in a beautiful quiet village"
The apartment lived up to all the pictures and was very clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The view onto the estuary is amazing, and the setting is lovely, especially next to the church. We travelled with a 7 month old and I was anxious about the safety of the flat but it was finished to a very high quality and no expense has been spared to give the feel of a home away from home.
Only advise I would give to visitors is to do a big food shop at a supermarket in crozon as the local shop sells only the basics. All of the beaches we visited in the peninsula were so different, some Sandy, some Rocky with crab pools and muscles. I think this holiday is for anyone who loves traditional French lifestyle and the countryside unspoilt.
