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 homely accommodation

5 of 5
From our enquiry to arrival we found Estelle to be very friendly and helpful. We were visiting France to spend the New Year with family and this was the perfect location. Couldn't have asked for better accomodation, catered for all our needs and had the most comfortable beds, definately a home from home and look forward to going back soon.
