Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Plouhinec, France, Your Home Away From Home

Plouhinec is a small coastal settlement, located between the towns of Pont l’Abbe and Audierne, within the Finistere department of Brittany, north-western France. Although the village’s biggest claim to fame is that it contains sculptures created by Rene Quillivic, a locally born artist, it is also a draw for families, due to its sheltered, white sanded beaches. Visitors looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the region’s busier resorts and are looking to enjoy a more laid-back and restful holiday in Plouhinec will find that there is a good choice of self catering holiday rental accommodation available here. This accommodation comes mainly in the form of apartments, townhouses and traditional French cottages, or gites.

Beautiful family house close to the sea

5 of 5
Myself, my husband and our two teenage daughters spent a week at this wonderful property. We were greeted on arrival by the very amenable hosts, Andre and Marie Christine who were extremely helpful in explaining everything we needed to know about the house and talking to us about the local area. There was a small problem with the wifi when we arrived which Andre immediately resolved by popping out to buy a replacement cable- we were very impressed by how efficiently he dealt with this. Andre and Marie Christine have thought carefully about how to make their guests' holiday experience enjoyable, for example they have a comprehensive range of leaflets and brochures in the property, including tidal times for the nearby beach. The house is beautiful! An old cottage style property, it was extremely spacious for the four of us. It comprises of a kitchen diner, large utility room, big lounge, downstairs bathroom with two separate WCs, a lovely conservatory with sea views, three big double bedrooms and a good sized twin bedroom. Outside there is a great decked area with table and chairs so you can dine al fresco enjoying stunning sea views (perhaps having cooked on the brand new bbq!). There is plenty of space to park and some grass, though the gardens aren't so important when you're a two minute walk to the sea! The house is very well equipped with everything that you need to make it a home from home and it is also very clean. The beach was very quiet when we were there in August which was an added bonus. It's a good sized beach with golden sands. There are several main supermakets within 10-15 minutes away and the beautiful town of Audierne, with its pretty harbour, is only a few minutes away by car, boasting many restaurants, mainly seafood, good creperies and pizzerias. In peak times you need to buy a parking permit from the tourist office for three euros, but this was a very simple procedure. All in all we would highly recommend this charming property, it's a wonderful base to explore beautiful Brittany and then relax in after a long day out and about or sunning yourself on the beach, safe in the knowledge that the owners are there to help should you need them. We definitely hope to return soon!

Beautiful home near the sea.

4 of 5
Beautiful home near the beach with views of the sea. Plouhinec is a quiet village but just a short drive from Audierne where there are more beaches, lots of restaurants and shopping. There were 8 of us in the house which has plenty of room. We enjoyed our stay.
