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.

Great holiday rental with amazing garden for children to explore. The house is very spacious and well equipped. It is a nice location with easy access to a number of beaches and the town of Audierne. We had a great 2 weeks and would definitely recommend to others.

A lovely spacious house which is comfortable and well equipped . Great beach nearby with a fantastic sailing school. Audierne is a pretty port town with plenty of decent places to eat and some nice river walks.
