The Maison Korentin enjoys an exceptional situation on one of Brittainy's coastal paths.It would be difficult to live closer to the sea; there are times inside you may almost feel that you're on a boat!

The house has been renovated with winter as well as summer hideaways in mind; it is warm,restfull and distictly retro in character(wooden flooring,old motif ceramic floor tiling in the kitchen,wooden beds and antique desks combined with high quality matresses,wood pellet fired central heating and a luxuriously deep bath.From the upstairs windows magnificent storms at sea can be comfortably viewed from the warmth of your bed!

The house is 115 square meters in size and consists of two bedrooms upstairs with double beds,a bathroom ,seperate toilet and a small dressing room with two large wardrobes.Downstairs,there is a small back kitchen with washing machine , large fridge/freezer and an inside barbecue chimney(perfect for grilling a lobster!)There is a larger kitchen/dining room which leads directly on to the living room.Across the hall is another living room/reading room with a desk and equipment to watch DVD's.This room can double as another bedroom if necessary-there is a large day bed (large and comfortable enough for one adult to sleep) and enough room to add a smaller folding bed.There are sea views from all rooms(excepting bathroom) Behind the house is an old stone courtyard and large field.It should be noted that these outside areas are not enclosed and so not really suitable for young children.

It must also be noted that the proportion of the house, despite it's capacity for 5/6 people, is also perfect for a couple alone and ideal for a honeymoon.The house invites peace and rest but also conviviality and creation,and may be especially appreciated by writers and artists and certainly by all nature lovers and those of a romantic spirit.

The Brittany region

The Cap Sizun area of Brittainy, a small westward point of land,two thirds surrounded by water,is a beautifull area,notable for it's wild majestic coastline peppered with small sandy creeks and grassy cliffs to the north and large sandy beaches to the south(where the house is situated)It is particularly known for the 'Pointe du Raz',it's most westerly tip,but the beauty of the wild coastal landscape to the north (a walker's paradise) far outweighs the interest of this single tourist attraction.Brittainy,and particularly the Cap Sizun,has something for everyone;apart from it's obvious beach,walking and water sport attractions,the area is rich in culture ,tradition and history.

Small chapels,megalithic monuments,calvaries and 'fountains' with religious edifices are to be found scattered across the peninsula,at crossroads and in small villages and towns.The port of Audierne is a few kilometers from the house .Here you will find small shopsand restaurants,a lively Saturday morning market and very fresh fish and sea food platters can be bought daily in the undercover market.From Audierne, the boat (50 minute trip) can be taken to the small Sein Island; with only 60 inhabitants,a no-car policy and great views of the Pointe du Raz and it's lighthouses on the crossing over-this trip is a memorable one.Leaving the Cap Sizun,Douarnenez (15 kilometres away) an old fishing port with it's new maritime museum is well worth visiting as is Quimper,a medieval city,and further south Concarneau and Pont Aven.


In the immediate area around the house you find yourself in direct and daily contact with the ocean and rocks where Cormorans

fan out and dry their wings in sunny weather. There is a small pebble beach just below the house which allows direct bathing

when the sea is calm,and pretty rock pools to explore.If you are very lucky,you may spot a seal or a dolphin.Ten minutes walk

along the coastal path to the right of the house you come to the large sandy beach of Gwendrez;the first of a series that lie between

Plouhinec and Audierne.In passing,you walk by the ancient paléolithique site of Menez Dregan dating back to 465,000 B.C.

At five minutes walk to the left of the house is the miniature port of Pors Poulhan with it's roadside bar and outdoor crêperie

(high summer only) and if the road is taken from Pors Poulhan further along the coast you arrive at Penhors and an enormous

stretch of flat sand beach which continues down to the Pointe de la Torche,where constant rolling waves have made this an

internationally revered spot among the surfing community.
