This advert describes just a few of the attractions in the locality which remains nevertheless an important fishing harbour where coastal vessels unload their quality catches daily including line bass fished in the Raz de Sein. The fresh fish and shellfish are then sold by auction in the fish market. Just like the fishermen, the local farmers too are concerned with the quality of their produce with authentic flavour, and cultivate the traditional values in both their products and their welcome.

The Owner Recommends

Also a Saturday market, Aquarium, maritime museum, banks, pharmacies etc. Lots of festivals throughout the area all summer. Visit the tourist office where they will tell you whats on during your holiday with many other delights are here waiting to be discovered.

Plouhinec

The footpaths around Plouhinec lead out into the middle of moors and stones, age old shelters for majestic monuments; as far as the banks of the Goyen, a magnificent river which meanders along too Pont-Croix, or else out to the coast, dotted with long beaches of fine sand punctuated by little creeks. Surrounded by 8km of coastline, Plouhinec draws its strength from its diversity. One of landscape but also of heritage. In this way coming round a valley, one can stumble upon charming 16th or 17th century churches; for example St Winoc, an absolute gem entirely restored under the auspices of the County council and the Restoration Committee. One can equally discover sites whose history goes back to the beginning of time; marine grottos marked by the burns of the first fires and protecting archaeological riches 500,000 years old.

The Brittany Region

Brittany is said to be one of the perfect tourist destination spots as it offers something for everyone. Whether you are after recuperation, gastronomy, activities or cultural regeneration, Brittany has something to offer you. There are all manner of watersports available, from surfing to sailing, scuba diving or canoeing to kitesurfing.

Brittanys moderate climate attracts people from the UK and Ireland because it is warmer, people from Paris because it is more bracing and people from the South in summer escaping excessive heat.

Had a great time. Maggie and Wayne were very helpful. Easy to find with the directions we were given. Wi fi only in one room, but worked well. Lovely garden-very safe for young children. Toys also there for children to play with. Boulangerie close by, also a supermarket. Audierne within walking distance. Lovely beaches close by. Not many shops in local town but Audierne had touristy shops, boulangeries, chemists and restaurants. We only ate out once, in a pizza restaurant close to the tourist office. Food good and reasonably priced. Would recommend to family and friends .

We have just returned from our family holliday with 4 adults and 2 toddlers who commented it was the best holiiday ever. The house was in an ideal setting, a 5 minute walk from a lovely sandy beach and a 5 minute drive from Audierne, a delightful harbour town with lots of restaurants and cafes. The House itself was a joy, immaculate well equiped with everything you could need and a fabulous large walled garden which was totally safe for little ones to run around in, or older children wanting somewhere to play games or just sit out and relax. Nearby were picturesque drives and towns and we had a lovely day at the Cap de Raz. Audierne had the Aqua Show with local marine life and birds which was a great outing in itself. .All in all this house and the owners provided a truly wonderful holiday experience for everyone including grandparents, parents and children, we could not have wished for more.

We had a wonderful holiday here, the cottage was perfect, a real home from home. It had everything we needed and more, very spacious and great for the children. Local harbour town was beautiful and the surrounding beaches were perfect for surfing and chilling.
We would highly recommend this cottage the owner was so friendly and helpful. Wish we could have stayed another week!
