It is tastefully decorated in a nautical theme, in an outstanding location, with direct beach access. The property is immaculately presented and spotlessly clean and is probably the best property and biggest on the road. There is ample off road parking and private bbq area to the rear. The owner met us when we arrived and could not have done any more to make us feel more welcome, and left us a phone number encase of any problems. I would recommend this property to all.

Most of the time we thought we were on a cruise liner with the view,and the sound of the sea was so soothing. The rooms were exceptional and the owners so nice and kind. There were flowers , Champagne and a tin of biscuits waiting for us. We did not want to go anywhere to visit because it was so amazing. Will be back in 2018 hopefully

We have stayed in Concarneau before so we already knew how nice the town and beach are but this house made this break much better then any other. 5 of us stayed in total (mum, dad and 3 children age 8, 6 and 4). The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The Children loved the house especially the garden. The outside area was great for them to play and and discover things to do. The outside BBQ was ideal and provided our dinner for most nights. We never got bored hanging around the house. We used the two bedrooms with three beds for the kids in the second bedroom, we all fitted in perfectly. These is one bathroom upstairs and the second toilet downstairs was very useful as we stayed around the house most days. The town centre, supermarket and beach were only a short drive away. The internet connection was not the most reliable but the owner was quick to try and fix this. The owner was friendly and helped made our stay very relaxing. Our family loves Concarneau and we love this house. We will be back again.
