About the Owner, Mrs Alison Lowen

Hello, As we love this part of France we decided in 2000 to buy some land in La Trinite-Sur-Mer and to build a house to our design with the help of a local architect. It was a great experience and so we now have our ideal holiday home in our ideal location.

Year property purchased 2002
Why this location? We have known this area for more than 40 years and feel it is a very special place of great diversity between sea and land.
Unique benefits of property Built in a Longere style to our design the house is within easy walking distance of the shops, port and restaurants of La Trinite-Sur-Mer, whilst being ideally situated to explore the countryside of Morbihan and to enjoy the many sea activities of the Baie de Quiberon, Gulfe du Morbihan and the Islands of Houat, Hoedic and Belle-Isle.

The Owner Recommends

Morbihan - Between Sea and Land

La Trinite-sur-Mer is a delightful small town and a mecca for sailing enthusiasts and learners alike. It is situated in Southern Brittany, in the Department of Morbihan, "entre mer et terre", between sea and land. The coastline is varied with the large surfing beaches of the Atlantic at Erdeven (15kms), the 'Cote Sauvage' on Quiberon, the Baie de Quiberon, with Carnac and la Trinite-sur-Mer, and the heritage site of the Gulf du Morbihan with its many islands and fast tides. Inland there are the impressive standing stones of megalithic times, and the rolling countryside of Morbihan. There are many things to see and do in la Trinite-Sur-Mer all year around as the sailing supports many activities. There are numerous walks, many beaches to explore, and the old towns of Vannes and Auray to visit. The local guides provide information on museums, tourist activities, and many different sports that can be enjoyed in the region.
