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.

The apartment is very comfortable and tastefully furnished. The views from the living area and the bedroom are fabulous with balcony seating on both levels. The beaches are great in Le Pouldu and there are a number of coastal walks from the property. The owner is charming. We would certainly like a return visit. Thank you.
