The children loved the freedom to wander over a huge area and we loved them being able to wander safely. The house feels like it is in the middle of nowhere but is actually just under a mile from a lovely village with everything you could want. Local beaches are beautiful and were quiet even in August. The pool was lovely and we really liked the setting of it within old barn walls. The house itself is characterful and extremely comfortable with everything you could need. The garden furniture and BBQ were also great quality. Al in all we couldn't fault the place and feel sure we will return. We would definitely recommend this house

We have stayed in Concarneau before so we already knew how nice the town and beach are but this house made this break much better then any other. 5 of us stayed in total (mum, dad and 3 children age 8, 6 and 4). The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The Children loved the house especially the garden. The outside area was great for them to play and and discover things to do. The outside BBQ was ideal and provided our dinner for most nights. We never got bored hanging around the house. We used the two bedrooms with three beds for the kids in the second bedroom, we all fitted in perfectly. These is one bathroom upstairs and the second toilet downstairs was very useful as we stayed around the house most days. The town centre, supermarket and beach were only a short drive away. The internet connection was not the most reliable but the owner was quick to try and fix this. The owner was friendly and helped made our stay very relaxing. Our family loves Concarneau and we love this house. We will be back again.
