Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Ile de Brehat, France, Your Home Away From Home

If the idea of a small, French Island renowned as a bird and wildlife sanctuary where cars are banned sounds like an ideal place for a vacation, then a holiday rental cottage in Ile de Brehat is just for you. This fascinating place is actually two islands joined by a bridge, and is often called the most beautiful part of Brittany. Summer is the most popular time of year for tourists from both mainland France and beyond, and self catering accommodation in Ile de Brehat is at a premium during this time. Booking well in advance is therefore essential.

Things to Do on Holiday in Ile de Brehat, France

Activities on the island are not as all-encompassing as other parts of France, but of course, its other aspects more than make up for this! The island is both small enough to walk from one end to the other within an hour, but also big enough to find a new walk every day. Bicycles are available to rent from the harbour if you would prefer to get around on two wheels. The beaches are always within easy access, and so sunbathing and swimming are all possibilities. Remember, however, that the water is a little cooler here than if you were on the Mediterranean!

Places to Visit on Holiday in Ile de Brehat, France

If you are on holidays in Ile de Brehat for more than a week, then you may wish to travel further afield, and see some of the attractions on the mainland. The immediate coastline on the mainland is known as the Pink Granite Coast, and is definitely worth time spent exploring. Inland, the medieval town of Dinard is a must see, with its 13th and 14th century partially timbered buildings and impressive walls. You can easily spend a day here, wandering through its cobbled streets and visiting the craft markets. If visiting the mainland, you may wish to hire a car in order to make the most of your time there.

Weather in Ile de Brehat, France

The normal weather that you can expect whilst on holidays in Ile de Brehat is one of a warm summer and mild winter. Certainly, it is not as warm as the Med, but average daily temperatures through July and August regularly peak over 20 degrees Celsius, making it warm, but not outrageously so. Rain can be an issue, and so go expecting a similar climate that you would to the south of England at the same time of year. During the winter, the average minimum temperatures rarely drop below 2 or 3 degrees Celsius. The island itself is much quieter during this time of year, with very few holiday makers, and just the three hundred or so residents.

Travel to Ile de Brehat, France

The Ile de Brehat is only accessible by ferry, and the journey from the mainland takes from between ten minutes and half an hour depending on conditions. An important point here to keep in mind, is that as there are no vehicles in the island, you should only bring what you can comfortably carry or wheel behind you. If travelling from the UK, you can drive and catch a ferry from the UK to France by landing at St Malo, Caen, Cherbourg or Le Havre. If flying, then Rennes (RNS) is probably the airport of choice, where Flybe operates routes from UK cities such as Birmingham (BHX) and Exeter (EXT).

Anne and Frank's' cottage was perfect for us! Beautifully appointed cottage with everything we needed... Log burning fire was so appreciated-puss curled up cosy every evening! Upstairs bedroom so very comfortable with en-suite ensured good nights' sleep. Despite it being December we had lovely sunny blue skies and enjoyed so many walks (and runs for my husband Jack) along the coastal paths and down on to Bonaparte beach (my favourite!) Enjoyed exploring Plouha and surrounds... Binic was a favourite with fantastic beach and harbour wall walk.... all in all a wonderful 5 days in a very special place with lovely owners nearby- thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would love to return. A huge thank you to our hosts! Fiona, Glasgow

There are lots of extra touches that truly make this home from home. The house was light, cosy and comfortable. It suited people of all ages - the basement den was a fab place for the teenagers to hang out and the pool table that converted to a table tennis table was a great unexpected addition. The house is perfectly situated for a short stroll into town for fresh bread or to the beach with the array of good restaurants on offer there. We all had a great time and hopefully can come back in the summer time to enjoy the pool as well.

The ground floor flat was very clean, and extremely well equipped. There was ample towels, linen, bedding etc. plus washing machine, dish washer, cooker, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer etc. The flat is located in a quiet block, in a very nice, quiet area, just 5 minutes easy walk to shops, cafes, sandy beaches etc. The off road car parking space is only 10m from the entrance. The flat is ideal for two people or two plus small child. We had more than enough hot water at all times and there was ample room heaters in all rooms. There was plenty of comfortable furniture, wifi, TV, radio and DVD player. Via the internet the TV gave access to hundreds of TV channels and radio stations - the only UK TV channel we could find was BBC World. Most UK radio stations were available. We could eat in the kitchen/lounge area or in the enclosed veranda. Beyond the veranda, through a second set of French windows was the large open north facing veranda. This was very private apart from one neighbour. The sea view could be viewed between two buildings. There were loungers, clothes driers etc. The smart town of St Quay Px is split into two. The half where the flat is located has sandy beaches and shops, restaurants etc. The other half is a 20 minute stroll away and has a marina, shops, restaurants, etc. (market on Monday mornings). There is ample parking everywhere in the town (but we were there in October - we had the impression that it could be busy in the season). We can recommend the "911" and the "Victoria" restaurants for evening meals (both by the St Quay Px marina). The location is a great base for touring. There are more sandy beaches in both directions along the coast. Also many interesting historical towns are within a 45 minute drive. Overall we had a great holiday. We would recommend St Quay Px as a nice town to spend time in and also a good base for touring. We would also recommend the flat as it was well presented, well equipped and in a quiet, convenient part of town.
