Maison Mimosa has 2 luxuriously appointed self-catering apartments offering spacious accommodation and set in beautiful private grounds in the most stunning, undiscovered part of Brittany.
Maison Mimosa is owned by us: Adrian and Ros Goddard. We bought the property after enjoying several holidays in this wonderful area. We moved from Shalbourne, near Marlborough in Wiltshire (another gorgeous part of the world), however, this part of Brittany also has so much to offer; we believe that it boasts the best elements of Devon, Dorset and Cornwall, together with superb seafood, sublime beaches, pretty coastal walks, weekly local markets with impressive displays of fresh produce and a temperate climate. The house is situated approximately 500 metres from the local beach at Rospico, and it takes only five minutes or so to reach the golden sands via the footpath at the bottom of our garden. The two-bedroomed apartment offers accommodation for up to four people. Our apartments will only ever accommodate a maximum of six people in total at any one time in order to ensure a truly relaxing, exclusive holiday experience for all our guests.
Please note that regrettably we do not accept children under the age of eighteen and we are unable to accommodate pets.

|Why this location?||This part of Brittany has so much to offer; we believe that it boasts the best elements of Devon, Dorset and Cornwall, together with superb seafood, sublime beaches, extensive pretty coastal walks, weekly local markets with impressive displays of fresh produce and a temperate climate. We are spoilt for choice with the many superb beaches close to us. The three nearest beaches, however, are Rospico beach (500m), Raguenez beach (2km) and Port Manech beach (2km).
Rospico beach, which is 500m away from the back of the garden down a footpath, has gently sloping sands for easy entry into the sea, and has a beach bar/café/restaurant that is popular with walkers and beach-goers alike. Being keen walkers ourselves, and having already explored the glorious surrounding countryside and coastal areas around us, we are able to recommend many different walking routes enabling you to unlock the treasures of our local area.
|Unique benefits of property||Maison Mimosa proudly offers not only a luxurious level of self-catering accommodation but also the benefits of a hotel environment with evening meals, breakfast and afternoon teas (for an additional charge) all freshly prepared by ourselves who live on site. We also cater for vegetarians even offering a vegetarian cheese board, virtually unheard of in France! We aim to make your holiday special by providing our guests with the best of what makes a holiday unforgettable for you. Maison Mimosa is also our home, and we are on site to deal with any of your requests and queries or to help you wherever possible, in an unobtrusive manner, to enjoy your holiday experience to the full. We are sure that once you have visited this beautiful area you will want to come again.|
There is nothing better than a visit to the weekly Friday market at Concarneau (about a 25 minute drive), next to the historic walled town, to take in the wonderful atmosphere and diverse produce for sale, from ultra-fresh seafood to freshly cooked roast chicken and pork with crackling; there is also a daily indoor market here (Les Halles) offering wonderful goods. After soaking up the atmosphere of the market you can stroll through the old walled town to find a restaurant, there are many to choose from, for a leisurely lunch.
After lunch you could visit one of the many beautiful beaches for a short walk on the coastal path and to possible relax on the beach.
On another day you could visit the charming town of Pont Aven (10 minute drive) famed for its association with the artist Paul Gauguin and a constant lure for many artists which also has a weekly market. This pretty town, located on the river Aven, is set in beautiful surrounds that can be appreciated most by exploring on foot. After you have discovered the charm of Pont Aven you can go for lunch at one of its many eateries. Maybe buy a baguette and sit over looking the pretty harbour or push the boat out and visit the famed Moulin de Rosmadec restaurant for a truly memorable gastronomic experience. After lunch a boat trip down the Aven river will offer you the chance to see the beautiful coast line and countryside from a different perspective. After this exhilaration why not come back to Mason Mimosa and relax in the garden with afternoon tea or even an aperitif!
