We have been to this property four times and have always been satisfied. This time the lounge furniture had been renewed and was very comfortable.
We love this property and its location. We have always found the owner reliable and very helpful and we hope sometime to return. We have no hesitation in recommending the property.
The house was very spacious for the 3 of us, it was full of all amenities we needed, however looked a little tired and a bit dusty in places.
Our 3 year old loved the beach, watching boats in the harbour and the playground nearby.
We enjoyed exploring the rock pools and paddling and paddle boarding on the beach.
Port Navalo is a lovely port to visit and the coastal walk is beautiful.
We took the passenger ferry to Lochmariaquer which is a pretty village with good beaches nearby.
We did as the French do - rode our bikes and ate moules frites and enjoyed our hols.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. Guests are always very pleased with how well equipped the property is and with comfortable beds especially when compared with the normal French gites and we agree that it is very well situated right near to the beautiful beach and a short walk into the port and close to all sorts of activities, walks, cycle tracks etc. We feel that your marking for cleanliness is a little harsh being only half that of the worst score we have been given for that category by any other guest because you felt the property was "a bit dusty in places", We do depend on the previous tenant's leaving the property in a clean condition and like to be told if that is not so.
However, we are very glad that you enjoyed your holidays doing "as the French do" and Port du Crouesty is certainly somewhere that you can always do that.
The house is in a perfect location, very close to the beach, coastal path and a short walk to the restaurants and shops on the marina, The garden is sheltered and well screened and all the rooms are modern, light and pleasant.
The lack of any local agent is a concern in case of problems and means considerable cleaning has to be done at the end of the holiday. This does make the house cheaper, but is an inconvenience.
The marina area was rather quiet as it was early June and we didn't have wonderful weather - but that isn't the house's fault.
I would certainly recommend this property to friends.
A lovely cottage besides the beach with mod cons.
