|Year property purchased||2013|
|Why this location?||We chose Carantec because my family are from the area, and my wife fell in love with the area and the wide range of outdoor activities that are on offer. Carantec has something for everyone, and our children have taken (and continue to take) full advantage of everything that is on offer within Carantec, throughout the year. As my wife is from Somerset in England, the ease of travelling to Plymouth from Carantec made the decision to buy in Carantec very easy.|
|Unique benefits of property||The property benefits from being walking distance to the town centre as well as the beaches, yet is in a quiet area. Bars and restaurants are also within walking distance. It is detached and has a wrap around enclosed garden, so privacy is guaranteed. It is fully equipped, light and well kept. We provide various games/equipments to take full advantage of the garden and the surrounding area, such as "pêche à pieds.|
If you fancy some fine dining at affordable prices, Ty Pot is a must. Situated in the heart of Carantec (500m from the house), it has a relaxed atmosphere and is family friendly, but the cuisine is varied and delicious.
If you like chocolats and typical French confiseries, this is where you'll find them. The small "cakes" are delicious and varied for all tastes.
The market is every thursday and during the summer is extremely busy due to the wide range of local produce, and the quality of the goods on offer.
If you enjoy "la galette bretonne" (savoury pancakes), la Chaise du Curé offers a great selection as well as the traditional ones. Down to earth, affordable but in a great location and very friendly service.
The sailing club is open to everyone and is on la Plage du Kelenn (1km max from house). You can hire pretty much anything that is sea related and relevant to the local environment. The prices are very affordable, considering what is available to see and do.
Plage Kelenn is within walking distance from the town centre, and the house. It has a jetty where you can catch tour boats to see the local coastline, or go to Roscoff or Morlaix. You can spend all day on the beach, as it has various activities for all ages as well as 3 restaurants just on the front. There is also a park and football pitch behind the beach or you can walk along the coastal path and discover some more secluded beaches.
