|Villa Sainte Anne||Self Catering||Saturday||5||9||2||Bedroom 5 also used as an office|
Villa with covered heated pool in a quiet location on the north Brittany coast, 15 minutes’ drive from the seaside resort and ferry port of Roscoff.
This large villa has been fully and tastefully renovated in 2016 and benefits from a lovely covered heated pool. The well-presented property in the seaside resort of in Saint Pol de Léon has many areas in which to relax with friends and family or simply enjoy reading a book in peace. The garden is enclosed and next to the villa is a large park benefiting from a stunning view overlooking the sea and from where you can enjoy stunning sunrises.
There is a safe sandy beach 1km away which can be accessed via a footpath. The town is very pleasant in summer and boasts an historic past including a Gothic cathedral with its twin towers dominating the landscape. There are also lovely coastal walks from the nearby beach along the Promenade de Penarth to Saint-Anne island.
There are numerous opportunities to do various water sports including windsurfing, bodysurfing, stand-up paddle, kayak as well as a sailing centre located at the tip of the island.
Nearby Roscoff is more than just a ferry port (sailings to and from Plymouth). Attractive 16th century granite buildings nestle against the coastline, the streets filled with restaurants, bars, charming little art galleries and gift shops. Across a narrow stretch of water from the quaint harbour is the tiny Ile de Batz, a beautiful island well worth a visit. Roscoff is also home to La Maison des Johnnies et de l'Oignon de Roscoff, a 'Museum of the Onion Johnnies', the well-known onion merchants who arrived in Britain on their bicycles selling onions door-to-door who made famous the caricature image of the Frenchman in a beret on a bike laden with onions.

Every Thursday morning in St Pol de Leon.
This property was even better than the advert description-we were so impressed.
The pool was lovely and warm & the cover on a cooler day meant we could still swim in comfort.
The villa is full of charm, comfortable beds, we were delighted to use all the beautiful crockery.
It is in a lovely position-literally in a park & a short walk to the quaint town & a nice beach to explore with places to eat & drink. We had a lovely picnic in a sheltered spot.
On arrival we were greeted by Mikael who was very helpful & just a phone call away.
The setting was peaceful with lovely views but close to amenities.
We would definitely recommend.
