Views from the lounge and decking look out over the garden, pine forests and the sea which is the protected waters of the Rade of Brest, and the wide, sandy, uncrowded and safe beaches are famous for every type of water sport - all just a few minutes away. We have furnished the house in a contemporary manner, it has an open plan lounge, 3 sets of south facing double doors besides the patio doors onto the large decking. It is kept beautifully. We are proud to say that our Guest Book has all glowing reviews without one bad comment in 12 years of renting.
The cliff top walking is spectacular on this lovely unspoilt Peninsula, which is part of the national parks of France, it is all so self contained yet with everything one could want for a wonderful holiday. Pretty, historic villages, wonderful sandy beaches, (you can park alongside these and no such thing as a parking meter!).

Locronan, 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. In Brest 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. Maritime Museum. Golf Courses. In Quimper a beautiful historic Cathedral town. Pont Aven – a very pretty place, famous for important artists like Paul Gauguin Concarneau, a lively historic city. Visit the old town entered through an arch in the surrounding city walls.
Morgat, a lovely seaside resort with large boat harbour, plenty of good seafood restaurants and shops. A swimming pool with water chute. Wide sandy beach. Plage de l’Aber I particularly like the beautiful beach at l’Aber. You take the third exit at the Tal ar Groas roundabout. In Pentrez kids will have great fun sand yachting on the beach. Menez Hom and Pointe du Raz – Wonderful views In Camaret, a quaint fishing village, popular with artists. Many galleries (in the narrow back streets) and many good restaurants. There is a sandy beach to the west of the seafront. Visit Cap de la Chevre and Point des Espagnols for the most spectacular views of the sea crashing on the rocks.
In Landevennec 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. Visit the famous Abbaye Saint Guenole de Landevennec and museum. The Abbey which is still home to Monks dates back to the 5th Century. Walk along the beautiful allotted paths from the village, or have a game of tennis on the village court. The village has a small restaurant, creperie and Tourist Office (in the peak season) and small general food shop.
The dramatic Atlantic coast is at its most spectacular here. 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! In Crozon itself 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, boutiques, banks, restaurants, book shops etc.. Many restaurants in Crozon, Morgat and Camaret, from Le Mutin, Goumand off the square in Crozon which is quite expensive but very good, to l’Oceanic much less expensive but very good on Route de Camaret. Camaret has many excellent fish restaurants, we like Hotel Paris and Cote Mer but there are so many… Lots of wonderful uncrowded sandy beaches surround the Peninsula. La Palou is famous for surfing but all are active with water sports. There are spectacular cliff top walks all around the Peninsula. I would particularly recommend the one that runs between Morgat and Cap de la Chevre. This walk can be accessed for a shorter walk from the Maison des Mineraux. You will see this on the map north of Morgat, or from the Port of Morgat for a longer walk. Children will enjoy the adventure park. Canoeing and Kayaking. There are many hire shops with all water sports gear.
