THE BOOKING WAS VERY EASY AND THE OWNERS HELPFUL. THE APARTMENT IS IN A VERY QUIET STREET WHICH SUITED US. IT IS ABOUT A 10 MINUTE WALK TO THE PORT AND RESTAURANTS. EVERYTHING ABOUT THE APPARTMENT WAS GREAT. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

We were not disappointed; the owners could not have been more welcoming and the villa itself far exceeded all our expectations. The property is modern but comfortably furnished and equipped, and the heated swimming pool was a big hit with everyone, especially our four grandchildren, all under 6 years of age. The property is ideally situated. With four small children we wanted somewhere that we could walk to local restaurants, which are only minutes away in a most beautiful harbour setting. There are also some excellent child friendly beaches within walking distance or a few minutes’ drive away. The coastal walks are also to be recommended with some beautiful coastal views. There is no local shop but there is a Carrefour, with petrol pumps in nearby Clohars-Carnoet, which also has some excellent boulangeries and charcouteries. The local market in Moelan-sur-Mer on Tuesday mornings is also a must, particularly for any foodies! In summary a superb property that more than lives up to the description on the website and is suitable for a family young or (and) old! The owners are absolutely charming and could not be more helpful without being in any way intrusive. All eleven of my family would recommend this villa to anyone looking a comfortable fun packed holiday in Brittany.
