Beautiful comfortable house with great garden. The village amenities were a bit disappointing but the area is so attractive. Great weather for our first week but second was very disappointing. However we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and hopefully can return in the future.
Very nice to meet the owners Chris and Annemarie.

We had a very pleasant stay here in September: a comfortable, well equipped, spacious house. We appreciated the WiFi and UK TV with all the current news - maybe we should have ignored that! Audierne was really lovely, the maritime museum was a surprising gem. We enjoyed the cider and
crepes but found the shops etc. all closing on Sundays, Mondays and in the afternoon inconvenient.

Absolutely delightful gite! This is our second stay here and it's still as lovely as we remembered. Fantastic condition, very comfortable, spacious and with a fantastic garden. Love the location and Esquibien and Audierne are beautiful places.We want to go back again!

One of the best properties we have stayed in in France and we all enjoyed our week immensely. Never been to Finistere before and the area is lovely, the beach at Esquibien very pretty and surprisingly empty whilst we were there. Nearby town of Audierne also very nice, particularly pretty with all the flower arrangements everywhere. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, all of them offering the local favourite - Crepes, both savoury and sweet.
