Inside there are plenty of traditional features, including antique furniture, wooden beams and stone fireplaces.

All around Ploubalay cottages you’ll encounter large expanses of unblemished nature, pristine beaches and old towns with compelling histories.

Things to do

-Local sights. Dinan is one of Brittany’s best-preserved towns, and has authentic half-timbered houses within its defensive walls. On the southern portion of the ramparts is the 14th Century Dinan Chateau, which contains a museum of the town’s history. In contrast, Dinard is an elegant seaside resort that saw a lot of development in the 19th Century, when palatial summer homes, hotels and a casino were built here.

-Outdoor activities. Walkers will find four marked circular trails passing through the unspoiled nature around Ploubalay. One of the most interesting walks covers the polders – farmland reclaimed from the sea by dykes erected in the 1400s so that Benedictine monks could cultivate the area around the abbey of Saint-Jacut. The polders consist of mudflats and salt marshes, and birdlife is abundant throughout.

-Natural beauty. Along the coast, northwest of Ploubaly, is Cap Fréhel, one of the most scenic locations in the region. It’s a peninsula composed of tall and dramatic limestone cliffs that is protected as a bird reserve. You can follow walking trails through wild heather and grassland to get to some truly unforgettable lookouts and photo opportunities. There are also two lighthouses, a chateau and restaurant on the peninsula.

-Beaches. There are some fabulous natural beaches close by – ideal for paddling and swimming on warm summer days, or walks during the other seasons. Lancieux has a long and broad curve of sand that shelves gently and has healthy breezes for windsurfers. The village of Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer is on a narrow peninsula, with a number of beaches, some of which are sheltered and some exposed and windswept.

-St-Malo. This town is full of grand old architecture dating to a wealthy period between the 1500s and 1700s. The town flourished because pirates had a royal mandate to use the town as a base to intercept ships from other countries. The old part of St.-Milo is enclosed by the original defences, and buildings here are constructed from the same grey granite as the famous Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We enjoyed our stay in St Jacut de la Mer. A good base for exploring along the coast - St Malo and Dinard to the east and the beaches west - St Cast and many bays around Cap d'Erquy (not the town itself). St Jacut itself is more about locals cockling so not the best place for eateries (never managed to eat in the couple of places still open in September - closed some nights and full another) but La Gare at nearby Ploubalay is top notch (in the Michelin guide), and for mussels, the Vieux Chateux on the bridge in Guido was excellent. Tides are amazing and the views from the house were always interesting, whether the tide was in, out, high or low. When high tide, great to swim in the main bay, just over 5 minutes walk from the house (when low, walks to the Hebehen Island really interesting). For the house itself, its a quiet neighbourhood (certainly when we were there end of September), there are good, comfortable beds, great having an outdoor area, including shower (with hot water!) for cleaning up after beach walks. All the mod cons, plenty of crockery, etc., but no oven gloves, only one tea towel and no serving spoons, which seemed odd given the volume of other kitchen ware. Shutters in the bedrooms, which were great, but nothing in the main living area which is a lovely space, but when it was sunny, you can't block it out, so we'd often return to a furnace .... house is a modern design, so probably difficult to have shutters or curtains. Overall, would definitely recommend.

There are lots of games and activities in the house for children too. There are several good beaches close by but check tide times before planning your day, as the water is only there for 3-4 hours each day, this was fine with us as we were able to plan other activities around beach time. There are lovely walks both ways along the coast line. The walk to the ruined chateau is doable with small children, and worth the effort. The Isle d'Ebihens is very beautiful. We would return to St Jacut again in the future and would definitely consider this property again.

The garden was big enough for the children to play. in. The house was five minutes walk from three major beaches and 10 minutes walk to the centre of St Briac. The weather was beautiful which made the stay even better. I would recommend the house to anyone with or without a family.
