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.

The log burner was lovely. Bathrooms beautiful. The location was amazing , peaceful and tranquil , never got tired of the views. The supermarket is about 3 miles away an 5 minute drive and was so well stocked . From meat to clothes bedding even a fresh orange juice stand . We were sad to leave! Sylvie was very helpful and very kindly allowed us to check in early. About a 2.5 hr drive from st Malo ferry. Would love to visit again. Thank you

Friendly owners and everything you need for a stay close to the beaches of Carantec. We were pleased to have taken a DVD player and DVDs as there isn't one supplied. We felt the cottage was ideal for 2 although there is a sofa bed in the living area downstairs and a bed in the attic mezzanine above the 1st floor bedroom. We will definitely book again.
