The property is situated as close to the extensive beach at St Barbe as you will find; around 10 mins walk. The local town (Plouharnel) for supermarche, boulangerie and local marche (twice per week) is 10 mins by bike. The Foret d'Adrenaline is also around 10 mins by car, excellent activity centre (Like Go Ape, but better as they have a more laissez faire/less paranoid "elf of safety" approach in France..), which we have visited before when staying in Morbihan region. There are also the "megalithic stones" and the small WW2 museum nearby.
The property itself comprises a downstairs double bedroom, galley kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, oven, good size fridge), living area and upstairs there are 2 single and one double bed. This is in the eves so a little cramped for head room. As with most French properties, do remember to take all your own bed linen and towels! The bathroom also houses a small washing machine which is perfectly adequate, shower (works well), sink, no bath. The floors are tiled throughout downstairs, wooden upstairs.
The garden area is the best feature, it is enclosed, densely planted shrubbery sheltering it from the coastal winds and very private, table, 6 chairs, large table shade, BBQ, a lovely place to hang out.
The property adjoins another rental property (it is one former house split in two I think) but we had no issues with sound ingress, I suspect that depends on ones neighbours at the time!
There is also an organ if you're musically inclined...
My only criticism (apart from having to take/buy your bed linen) is that a couple of the chairs in the living area have legs which are in need of repair, go carefully on these!)
Jean Maurice, the owner was very friendly and made contact by phone and text as we arrived and responded promptly to texts. He has reasonable English. Note that the phone reception isn't great, but texts seem to work best in this locale.
Overall we would definitely recommend this property and certainly be happy to stay there again.
From the first contact to leaving we’ve had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The greeting from Jean Marie was second to none, very helpful and informative.
We could happily own the apartment as our own holiday home, the location is excellent, the views stunning, and so peaceful ..... I’ve read somewhere, and it’s true, the time is set by the ebb and flow of the tide - perfect. Ideal for walking around the town, perfect to catch the small ferry across to Gavres, which itself is perfect to walk around and ideally placed for the endless beach 2-3minutes walk away and the town beach 10 minutes walk away.
The apartment is a really good size, sittingroom, dining room, kitchen area really works as 3 distinct areas ... and the view whilst eating ... brilliant. The bedrooms are good sizes, plenty of clothes space, the bathroom and shower superb. The kitchen perfectly equipped and the quality of everything throughout the apartment is first class .... even down to an excellent pair of binoculars to watch the boats coming and going and the egrets and terns feeding!!!
We have no hesitation in recommending this property for a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday ..... as and when we visit this area again we will be going back to this apartment in Port Louis. If we could give it 6 stars we would!!!!
