The cottage has been recently refurbished and is clean and bright inside, decorated with a nautical Breton theme and with paintings by local artists on the walls. The living/dining area is spacious and the bedrooms are comfortable (limited headroom upstairs!). Bathroom and kitchen are well equipped with modern appliances. The property has a generous garden and lots of furniture. We had very hot weather but the cottage remained cool because of the thick stone walls. This is our second visit to Crozon and we are still captivated by the stunning beaches and clifftop walks. In June there are very few tourists about and on the more remote beaches you can virtually have them to yourselves!

The host is very welcoming and although we didn't speak french, she was so accommodating and friendly! The area is beautiful with beaches and little gems everywhere. We'll definitely go back! Thank you making our first trip to France so memorable.
