There are 4 good sized bedrooms, one of which is downstairs. The property is very light and airy, and when the sun shines you can open up sliding doors on the front and the rear giving access to the beautiful landscaped gardens. The pool is without doubt the most impressive feature and we used it every day (sometimes late into the evening). There is a well equipped laundry room with tumble dryer, which had plenty of use. The kitchen is fairly small but we cooked meals for 8 people without any trouble! The Villa has a sea view. There is a short walk to the sea through a field. The beach isn't suitable for bathing due to rocks but there are some glorious white sandy beaches just along the coast at Plougerneau and at Keremma. Roscoff is well worth a visit too, for souvenirs or local French produce. The town of Plouescat (5 minutes away) is very picturesque. We enjoyed fresh bread every morning from one of the 4 boulangeries and the crepes were to die for! Just one word of caution - we arrived late on Saturday evening and the only place open for food was a pizzeria which had no tables left so we had to buy take away pizza and there were no supermarkets open. It is advisable to bring the basics (drinks, tea, coffee etc) with you if you are arriving late. We had a splendid time and Francis was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property.

It is very well looked after with lots of modern technology and has a lovely garden with decking and barbecue. There is wifi available and huge TV's with Netflix - always handy on days where the weather is not so good. It is a 2 minute walk to the centre of Plouescat which is a beautiful market town (market on Saturday mornings). There is a Spar, 2 fantastic boulangerie/pattiseries, little boutique style shops and cafes. Both the creperie and the bistro (in the square) are worth a visit for a meal out but you will need to book. On Porsmeur beach is the restaurant Roc'h ar Mor - again you need to book but the food and setting is beautiful. You can look over the beach watching the sunset eating moules frites! Another little gem we found was la Bucail in Saint Pol de Leon - lovely setting, friendly helpful staff and great food at great prices! The tourist information office has lots of helpful leaflets showing the wide range of places to visit in the area for all ages. The best local beach we found was Porsmeur although there are so many to choose from. We would definitely recommend the house and the area.
