We had a great time at this spacious and well-positioned property. Facilities/cleanliness to a very high standard.
There are supermarkets nearby and whilst not a lot goes on in the village of Esquibien, the nearby town of Audierne is great to look around and has an excellent aquarium. There are superb views and walks to be had at Pointe du Raz which is about 20 minutes drive away. There are beaches about a 1k walk away or a couple of minutes in the car. Bigger towns like Quimper are within easy reach (45 minutes or so).
A bonus is the large garden and a selection of games.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our house and were able to make the most of the beaches and the local area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ty Kerhuon. The location has been very good for easy access to coastal walks, beaches and towns in the area, as well as a good range of supermarkets within short drives away. The house is spacious, comfortable and well equipped, and the garden is spectacular. The house was very well prepared for our arrival and spotlessly clean. The usual selection of UK TV Freeview Channels were available and there was very good WiFi connectivity. Chris and Anne-Marie were very helpful during the booking process.
Lovely house and garden in a quiet area of Esquibien. Very clean and comfortable. It is an old Breton house with character and style. The owners were very helpful throughout our booking.
This area of Brittany is beautiful. We visited a few places during the week but our trip to La Pointe du Raz was a unique experience. These are famous rocks like Lands End in Cornwall. It is a big tourist attraction so very busy. There are shops and restaurants here and a visitors centre.
There are many good beaches in this part of Brittany near Audierne.
A visit to Pont Croix a medieval town is also interesting. There is a good supermarket here but five minutes from the gite is a very good Leclerc supermarket.
We had a brilliant two weeks staying here. The house and enormous garden are fantastic and we love the local area. We spent most of our time on the nearby beach, which is perfect for young kids- really safe, clean and great for swimming, kayaking or just pottering about. We also enjoyed nearby towns (especially Audierne and Pont Croix), and the area is great for bike rides and coastal walks. We are very keen to return.
