It is tastefully decorated in a nautical theme, in an outstanding location, with direct beach access. The property is immaculately presented and spotlessly clean and is probably the best property and biggest on the road. There is ample off road parking and private bbq area to the rear. The owner met us when we arrived and could not have done any more to make us feel more welcome, and left us a phone number encase of any problems. I would recommend this property to all.

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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The place looked great on paper... and it really lived up to expectations. Eight of us - three adults, one teen and four youngsters spent easy days hanging in the pool, playing on the beach or just chilling out in the lounge enjoying the view. The pool is a good temperature and good size - although note it is 1.5m deep, so bring arm bands for younger kids. We also brought some inflatables (two rings and a crocodile), a body board and several water pistols. As a result, the kids were in the pool at least once every day! You can't see it from the pictures, but outside the lounge there is a small garden with a picnic table and four sun loungers. Right at the end of the garden is a path leading down some rocks and onto the beach. A great beach too. The sun rises at the front of the house, and moves over the back in the afternoon, so that's when you want to go to the beach, especially as that's when the tide is in and you can paddle/swim in the sea. The sun setting on the water is quite magnificent. The owners also supply two kayaks (and various life jackets). They were excellent! We went out into the sea a few times - including one epic journey. It's absolutely amazing out on the open water - we just regretted not taking a couple of beers with us! Outside of the house, the village (Santec) is ten minutes walk and has a nice bakery and a bar/tabac, as well as a small grocery store. There is a big E Leclerc supermarket at nearby St Pol de Leon that has a great selection and good prices, and cheap fuel. For a day trip drive into Roscoff and take the boat to the Ile de Batz (pronounced Ba). We hired out bikes (including one with a trailer for the two littlest and two junior ones for a six and seven year old) and cycled to the the lighthouse creperie for a bite to eat, before heading to the lighthouse itself, which we climbed for some amazing views. Afterwards, we hit the nearby beach with its amazingly clear water. If we'd arrived earlier, we might have cycled round the whole island. It really is beautiful. All in all, a brilliant place for a holiday, especially with kids. Very helpful owners too. Highly recommended.
