Ideally located for the Sunday Market , short scenic family walk to Cancale Centre and the Port to embrace the Oyster culture with a bottle or two of chilled Muscadet on the beach, and amble back. Beautifully maintained property and garden , suitable for us with two small children.

Audrey is a very efficient host and is easy to stay in touch with when you need her. The house is located in a nice quiet and safe neighborhood with great access to all amenities and a 10 minute walk to the beach . The house is spacious but extremely cluttered. The bedroom and mezzanine area are very overcrowded with piles of folded linen , toys, books and ornaments which should be stored away out of sight when renting to holidaymakers to create more space. We also had to clean the knives and forks and wash the cutlery drawer before we used them as they were dirty with food on them which was off putting . Having said that its a lovely house in a great area and well worth a visit.
