Just 400 yards from a beautiful white sandy beach, you will enjoy miles of coastal footpaths and bird-watching along the estuary of the River “Ster”. The port of Lesconil (1 mile from the cottage) with its restaurants and pubs overlooking the port is the perfect location for a nice lunch or to enjoy a relaxing drink.

This truly was a stunning property that was even better (and felt bigger) than the pictures. The setting is beautiful and we enjoyed eating in the garden. It is only a short walk (5/10 mins) to the beautiful local beach and I can really recommend going to watch the sunset. The local creperie is also worth a visit - very tasty! A slightly longer walk (20 mins/half hour) and you are in Lesconil with cute restaurants and a picturesque harbour. As we had a car it was really easy to visit lots of great places within an hour like Loctudy, Locronan and Quimper. We could also drive to the nearest supermarket in under ten minutes which was very handy!
The house itself has everything you could wish for and more. It has a cosy yet grand feel and is decorated beautifully! We felt right at home from the minute we arrived and didn't want to leave. Morgan was so helpful leading up to the holiday and whilst we were there - perfect English too! We would absolutely love to stay here again and see how it keeps developing. Thank you so much Morgan for a fantastic holiday! :)

A very comfortable cottage with a most beautiful garden. A super beach within walking distance and a fabulous creperie across the road. Morgan, the owner, was extremely helpful and very friendly. We would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning very soon.

on arrival morgan welcomed us with excellent English,and made us feel very welcome.
The cottage was comfortable,clean and well maintained, The local area is full of interesting places to visit. Unfortunately we visited in late September and some places were closed down. But all in all we had a great time and would certainly stay here again and recommend to others.

Thank you Morgan.
