Make a holiday villa, gite or cottage in Finistere, Brittany, France your home away from home

Finistere is the most westerly department of France, and is located in the Brittany region, strutting out into the Atlantic. Finistere has 750 miles of coastline to enjoy with thousands of inlets, bays and islands. Finistere means ‘land’s end’ in Breton, and can be considered the French equivalent of Land’s End across the Channel.

The largest settlement in Finistere is the city of Brest. Destroyed almost entirely during the raids of WW II, Brest had to be largely re-build. However, some of the original city remains, including the 15th Century Castle and La Place Guerin, haunt of many poets, musicians and writers.

A holiday to a Finistere holiday rental cottage or gite would not be complete without a boat trip to the famous Ile d’Ouessant. The island makes up part of the Armorique Nature Reserve, and is a fantastic trip for cyclists and nature lovers.

There are many great towns and villages in Finistre where ancient stones, historic architecture and magnificent Finistere villas can be seen, including the destinations of Audierne, Quimper and Crozon.

This was the most peaceful holiday we have ever had. The setting was perfect.

5 of 5
The location could not have been better, direct access on to a beautiful beach. We spent many hours sitting on the patio enjoying the view, watching the children learning to sail, paddle board and windsurf. We walked along the beach collecting seashells, paddling in the sea and sometimes swimming. We did venture out a few times and can recommend Quimper and Vannes for sightseeing and shopping. The apartment was perfect and very comfortable, the second week we were four adults but we had plenty of space. There were several places to eat very near the apartment and the local supermarket and bakery provided all we needed. The local cider was exceptional and we bought several bottles home with us both for ourselves and as gifts. I loved this apartment and hope to return again next year. Thank you Yannic.

Lovely house with a beautiful vista. Fantastic pool ideal for those wet and colder days.

4 of 5
Beautifully proportioned house with a fabulous view of the beach and sea. Bedrooms are well sized with plenty of storage space. Kitchen ok for basic cooking but could be better equipped for cooking larger meals. We were surprised by the extra hidden costs we had to pay on arrival that we had not previously been informed of (damage deposit, electricity usage), Bed linen/towels and end of stay clean also not included in the total price advertised on owners direct site. The quality of bed linen and towels provided at extra cost were very poor. Lovely creperie within walking distance but not much else. The centre of Loctudy is a 10 min drive.
