The original Breton house made of granite has an exceptional location. Direct sea view at the back from paradise garden and a charming hamlet to the front, even with private parking space. In the interior the old substance has been lovingly preserved, yet completely restored, the centre piece is the cosy airy kitchen with a large wooden table and excellent kitchen facilities, dishwasher included. The walls in the kitchen are sealed with clay in old Breton technology. In the living room a fireplace awaits you for relaxing evenings in leather sofas or from the countertop, a desk from the antique shop. A house of art and culture with original pictures and paintings and a set-up in which nothing was spared. In the first floor on top the bedroom has sea view and its bathroom very next to it. The bathtub is from the designer Phillip Stark. No sound except the rumbling of the sea rings inside your ear, the garden is at your feet. Under the roof there is a grandiose view from the desk and an extra bed.
The house has internet in the living room (with cable) and is a good place for creative holiday, write, or read books, design, plan, relax, and delicious food, available from the nearby fish market, where there is freshly caught fish. A supermarket in 5-minute drive offers everything that the kitchen needs. And a visit to Audierne with multitudinous delights on market day is special. The house was restored and furnished by an artist and an architect. Sitting at the wooden table in the garden under the parasol, looking into the sea and just being so, is pure relaxation. Or even jogging for two hours along the coast and becoming one with the sea, remains a memorable experience. The Breton house has historical substance and has been restored to give this charm. The rooms are separated by comfortable wooden floors; however, a soundproofing is not expected like in new buildings.
A telephone is available, as far as your previous tenant handled it well, only for landlines, no mobile numbers.
The house has sea view, no other construction in between the granite house and the sea, only the coastal landscape. From the house you can directly reach the romantic coastal walking trail along the sea within 3 minutes. Walk on the sandy coves and small fishing ports over to the far end of the promontory 'Cap Sizun' with its world famous view point 'Pointe du Raz'. (UNESCO) Reward yourself there with a cafe and a Crepes Caramel. Visit the charming weekly market on Saturday morning in Audierne or Douarnenez, 'Sardinian' harbour city and Pont Croix with the golden altar in his church or the historic town of Locronan. In Plogoff there is a horse stable, where children and amateurs can take up rides. In the swimming bay 'Baie des Trepasses' and the long sandy beach 'St. Tugen' there is a school for surfers. In summer you will find art and music events in Breton chapels. The nearby town of Quimper has a perfect infrastructure with its large market hall, the medieval town character, its cathedrals, theatre, museums, galleries, cafes and French designer shops.
