Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Brest, Brittany, France your home away from home

Sitting on the western tip of the Brittany Peninsula in Finistere, Brest boasts an important port, home to the French Navy. Despite being almost completely rebuilt in the 1950’s concrete and granite style after being raised to the ground by Allied bombing during WWII, Brest has an undeniable charm.

The impressive 15th Century Castle which still stands over the city is one of the few monuments to survive the War in and around Brest. The castle is a fantastic place to visit upon your arrival in a Brest villa, as it provides a stunning panorama over the city, and also holds the fascinating Musee National de la Marine, depicting the history and artefacts of the French Navy. The Musee de Vieux Brest is a wonderful place to visit directly afterwards, as it depicts the town on the eve of WWII. The museum is easily found, being housed in the dominant Tower of Tanguy which stands on the bank of the River Penfeld.

The Brest Aquarium or Oceanopolis Marine Centre is a wonderful place to visit from a Brest apartment, villa or holiday home, especially if you are travelling with children. There are always a variety of marine animal displays, as well as an excellent 3D cinema.

Many people come to Brest to enjoy the fantastic cuisine which the town is famous for in France. The huge range of restaurants are found throughout the town, mainly serving Breton recipes from crepe to seafood, all washed down with the excellent cider and beers of Breton.

In July and August, temperatures average almost 25°C, with daily peaks reaching into the 30’s with surprising regularity.

Being so close to the water was perfect for teenage boys to come and go - whether swimming or paddle boarding when the tide was in, or exploring the exposed sea bed and nearby islands when the tide was out. Great to have the bar not far away (but not heard from the house - closes at 9pm) which overlooks a perfect Breton sandy beach - good for a swimming. The house was comfortable and clean and had good basic facilities, and a good sized garden to kick a ball around. Lots of maps and leaflets to help you get to know the area - we brought our bikes and were able to explore all the little back roads and find other sandy beaches and villages. The TV with a couple of Wii games entertained the boys when it poured with rain - a great back-up entertainment! Lots of local markets nearby the best was in Plouguerneu but I can't remember which day! Another happy week in Brittany :)

The views are outstanding from the top floor and it has been built to a high standard. The villa is fully equipped and suitable for 2 families. It is in a great located - 5 minutes walk from excellent town restaurants and beach. Owners are very pleasant and understanding - particularly when we speak very little French! Swimming pool and jacuzzi are great. Children's response to the villa, was that it is "brilliant". Will definitely be considering it again next year.
