“A stunning, salubrious retreat for that well-earned holiday and/or celebration”

Reviewed 19 Nov 2012

It was my 60th but, in truth, it could have been for any special family occasion. There were ten of us, six adults and four children, and the house was excellent, very well prepared/appointed/equipped etc - so spacious that we were never under anyone's feet, while close enough to be intimate in the family sense. Most of us knew the Douarnenez area but recent skiing and summer holidays have taken us much farther south (especially the Vendée) in recent years. Yet this short break, out of season, made us fall in love with Brittany all over again - it is, of course, so similar to our beloved homes in Cornwall after all. Douarnenez town may be a tad disappointing out of season (its summer hive of port/ports, sailing, boating and fishing activity, for us, is the main draw) but the nearby beaches are superb (at any time of the year) and close by places like Quimper, Locronan, Giulvenic, Concarneau, Pont l'Abbe, Benodet, Audienne et al are lovely and superb whatever the date or weather. We love the Vendée but we have fallen in love again with Brittany - and that, in no small part, is because of this homely, welcoming retreat, salubriously maintained by Vicky and Phil W and brought to life, on our arrival, by the delightful Karene. We cannot recommend this place/area enough. We went for a party but this homely abode is a celebration for all seasons and occasions. Enjoy!

“A perfect retreat”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2012

This is a fantastic house if you want to get away from the crowds, but still have local amenities not too far away. As the property is at the end of a private road it is very quiet, apart from the sound of wildlife and the waves crashing on the shore. The views from the balcony are wonderful and it is just a short walk to the coast, with fantastic views from the coastal path. The house is very well equipped and the snooker table provided added entertainment, although sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine, watching the sun go down, was hard to beat. The owner, Vicky, was very helpful, as was Geraldine the housekeeper who gave us a warm welcome. We would definitely stay here again if we decide to holiday in this area. We have stayed in many houses in Brittany, but this was the best so far!

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your review. I am delighted you enjoyed your holiday here . It is always nice to hear that guests love it as much as we do ! I hope you may visit again . Vicky

“Top notch self-catering in beautiful setting”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2011

Have just returned from a week away here - eight members of family from three generations - and had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful, built into the hillside overlooking Douarnenez Bay, extremely well-equipped and comfortable. The basement containing a twin bedroom and large separate lounge including pool table, tv,dvd, wireless broadband was perfect for our teenagers, and other rooms very comfortable - beds are great and most rooms have a sea view. Beautifully designed, fab balcony leading off main lounge (coffee a.m, wine p.m!), plenty of parking and enough room for eight people to spread out and have a little down time if needed! Highly recommended. If you haven't been to this part of Brittany, go - and stay here!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind feedback, we are delighted you celebrated your 60 th birthday here- do come back for your 70th !

“Enjoy with a capital E”

A wonderfull house with "a room with a view" over the ocean! Sitting on the balcony - hearing the ocean - looking at the waves - you feel like a king and queen!
