Not enormous, with spiral staircase to the bedroom and bathroom. Nice outdoor sitting area and private parking. The only downside was very poor internet connection and a downstairs loo! . The Crozon peninsula is stunning, offering walking, boating, surfing. We did it all.

The cottage has been recently refurbished and is clean and bright inside, decorated with a nautical Breton theme and with paintings by local artists on the walls. The living/dining area is spacious and the bedrooms are comfortable (limited headroom upstairs!). Bathroom and kitchen are well equipped with modern appliances. The property has a generous garden and lots of furniture. We had very hot weather but the cottage remained cool because of the thick stone walls. This is our second visit to Crozon and we are still captivated by the stunning beaches and clifftop walks. In June there are very few tourists about and on the more remote beaches you can virtually have them to yourselves!
