We flew the short hop from Birmingham to Brest and then it was only 45 mins in a car to Sibiril. Brittany is a quiet part of France but there are great beaches, good seafood restaurants and the old town of Roscoff is really quaint. The beach is 5 min walk away from the property which boasts an indoor heated pool - perfect for an active 8 year old. Finally the owner, Jacqueline, was really helpful and easy to deal with. All batteries fully charged and kids really enjoyed the trip.

Theven beach is accessible through a gate at the bottom of the garden and some rough steps. Sieck to the south and Batz to the north are visible from the beach.Mr Bourhis speaks good English and we found Mr & Mrs Bourhis both accommodating and helpful.There are shops within walking distance(chemist; pattiserie,bar and convenience store) All in all a relaxing holiday in a superb location.
