Beautiful house, amazing garden, lovely host!

I stayed at this property with 3 friends for a week of cycling and surfing around the region. The house was perfect! Loads of room, lovely furnishings, great garden with fresh fruit and herbs, well equipped kitchen for cooking...couldn't ask for more. The host, Beatrice, was incredibly friendly and helpful, and made the whole experience very smooth. would definitely go back!

Brilliant Brittany Holiday

5 of 5
We had a fabulous holiday staying at Les Vents Bleus. The accommodation was really lovely, comfortable ,spacious and maintained to an excellent standard throughout. There are wonderful views from the balcony and the beach is literally 2 minutes away, where the children spent lots of the holiday, exploring the beach and rock pools and playing in the sea. The area around the house also has lots to offer, we visited huge sandy beaches, war museums, old forts, antique markets, and lovely French villages, to list just a few. This holiday had something for everyone and we would definitely recommend it.
