Hi there - I'm Anne and I own Brittany Cottage. My family & I just love our cottage in beautiful Brittany - we feel so relaxed when we're there! Love the beach, the pool, the food etc. Although we live in the UK, we try to get over there whenever we can. I have an excellent relationship with my property manager in Brittany who works with me to ensure that your holiday is a comfortable and relaxing escape - after all that's what we all work for!

|Why this location?||Just 45 minutes drive from Roscoff Ferry Port, this area of Brittany is home to stunning coastline and beautiful, award winning beaches. It's also on the edge of the Armorique National Park and is surrounded by pretty medieval towns and villages. It's a great area for adults and children alike.|
|Unique benefits of property||You can't beat it's location - on a complex with many amenities including a pool as well as being less than 10 minutes walk to the beautiful Pentrez beach.|
Over 425,000 acres of beautiful and diverse landscapes and scenery. Activities include fishing, cycling, walking and horse riding. Or just simply sit at a rustic picnic table under a clear cerulean sky, tucking into freshly-baked baguette, cheese and sweet cherry tomatoes, and marvel at the beauty that surrounds you.
The Crozon Peninsula offers breathtaking landscapes and the beach of Île Vierge in Morgat is also acclaimed as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Camaret-sur-Mer is home to an exceptional piece of French architecture, the Tour Vauban tower dating from the 17th century and classed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Located in the village of Camaret, the Memorial Museum to the Battle of the Atlantic is entirely housed in a blockhouse and is definitely worth a visit - younger visitors will enjoy exploring the bunkers.
As well as being France’s third most important fishing port, Concarneau has other assets that make it a very popular summer resort. The main draw is the quaint ville close (walled town) followed by some lovely sandy beaches and a lively maritime festival in August. This old stone fortified ‘town’ has just a few narrow streets filled with shops and restaurants, where geraniums tumble from window boxes. Take a walk around the ramparts for spectacular views over the area.
Quimper, city of culture and history, is a multi-faceted destination. It boasts well-preserved architecture such as Saint-Corentin Cathedral and the colourful timbered houses, a dynamic craft tradition that includes the Faïence of Henriot and the Pascal Jaouen Embroidery School, and of course its major festivals (Cornouaille and Circonova), making it a truly unmissable city in Finistère.
Comfortable, clean and spacious and in an elevated position with good views, albeit on a site of 60+ other small terraced cottages. Perhaps could do with an oven rather than a dishwasher as microwave inadequate.
As regards amenities, pool looked ok but we didn't use as wonderful beaches nearby. Also, very few restaurants and eateries open as most closed for season.
However, very easy to book, good value for money and good service and information from the owners, many thanks!
Hi Andrew - many thanks for your review and I'm delighted that you had a wonderful short break at Brittany Cottage.
A little surprised about your comment regarding restaurants and places to eat as, although the main summer season has ended, the majority of them are still open until well into the autumn. I'm also sorry you were disappointed with the lack of an oven, however, this has not been an issue for any other guests some of whom have stayed there for a week or more. Therefore, if this is your only negative comment about the cottage's facilities, I do feel that the score of 6.0 is a little unfair as this is purely a personal choice.
However, we do value feedback and have taken your comments on board. Thank you once again for choosing Brittany Cottage.
The location is superb, being so close to the fantastic beach. For us, there was a bit of a dearth of decent restaurants, although if you like crepes and galettes, there is no problem. The house is lovely, modern and light and tastefully decorated and accessorised. For us there were two negatives. One the only WC is in the downstairs bathroom and there is no television. The former is only a problem for me as I am a crotchety old septuagenarian and need to use the loo during the night and the latter because when I booked the holiday I failed to notice that the World Cup was being played. We probably could have hired a TV but I didn't read the relevant info until after England had played. My fault, as usual!!!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Yes, TV's are available for hire although we do find guests usually watch programmes on their own electronic devices. You make a good point about the only toilet being downstairs if guests need to use it at night so I will update our details to make sure future guests are aware of this.
I'm thrilled that you had such a lovely holiday with fantastic weather and I look forward to welcoming you back to Brittany Cottage again in the future.
