                                                                                                      The place looked great on paper... and it really lived up to expectations. Eight of us - three adults, one teen and four youngsters spent easy days hanging in the pool, playing on the beach or just chilling out in the lounge enjoying the view. The pool is a good temperature and good size - although note it is 1.5m deep, so bring arm bands for younger kids. We also brought some inflatables (two rings and a crocodile), a body board and several water pistols. As a result, the kids were in the pool at least once every day! You can't see it from the pictures, but outside the lounge there is a small garden with a picnic table and four sun loungers. Right at the end of the garden is a path leading down some rocks and onto the beach. A great beach too. The sun rises at the front of the house, and moves over the back in the afternoon, so that's when you want to go to the beach, especially as that's when the tide is in and you can paddle/swim in the sea. The sun setting on the water is quite magnificent. The owners also supply two kayaks (and various life jackets). They were excellent! We went out into the sea a few times - including one epic journey. It's absolutely amazing out on the open water - we just regretted not taking a couple of beers with us! Outside of the house, the village (Santec) is ten minutes walk and has a nice bakery and a bar/tabac, as well as a small grocery store. There is a big E Leclerc supermarket at nearby St Pol de Leon that has a great selection and good prices, and cheap fuel. For a day trip drive into Roscoff and take the boat to the Ile de Batz (pronounced Ba). We hired out bikes (including one with a trailer for the two littlest and two junior ones for a six and seven year old) and cycled to the the lighthouse creperie for a bite to eat, before heading to the lighthouse itself, which we climbed for some amazing views. Afterwards, we hit the nearby beach with its amazingly clear water. If we'd arrived earlier, we might have cycled round the whole island. It really is beautiful. All in all, a brilliant place for a holiday, especially with kids. Very helpful owners too. Highly recommended.

THE BOOKING WAS VERY EASY AND THE OWNERS HELPFUL. THE APARTMENT IS IN A VERY QUIET STREET WHICH SUITED US. IT IS ABOUT A 10 MINUTE WALK TO THE PORT AND RESTAURANTS. EVERYTHING ABOUT THE APPARTMENT WAS GREAT. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

The villa was ideal for us as it was very child friendly and safe. The swimming pool doors can be locked, as well as the front gate. This meant that the children could quite happily play in the garden whilst we relaxed. The villa itself is beautiful, being very modern and spacious. We all loved the swimming pool and used it every day. It was also a great way to keep the kids entertained on the days where the weather wasn't so good. The Santec area is very picturesque, the villa is just a 5 minute walk away from the sandy beach and a 10 minute walk into the village centre. There is a lovely little bakery in the village for fresh bread and pastries. The supermarket in St Pol de Leon is also very good and is just a 10 minute drive away. There are some beautiful towns such as Roscoff, Carantec and Morlaix that are just a short drive away. We had a fantastic holiday and thoroughly enjoyed staying in Frederic and Nathalie's beautiful house, we would definitely recommend it and the Santec areafor a relaxing family holiday.
