Most of the time we thought we were on a cruise liner with the view,and the sound of the sea was so soothing. The rooms were exceptional and the owners so nice and kind. There were flowers , Champagne and a tin of biscuits waiting for us. We did not want to go anywhere to visit because it was so amazing. Will be back in 2018 hopefully

We loved the mixture of stone walls and wooden cladding inside with modern decor and calming colours. The huge garden was a lovely place to relax on a sun lounger, read a book and listen to the tinkling of the stream but the star attraction for us was the pool in the roofless barn. A beautiful rustic, sheltered spot to relax. Finistere is a beautiful area with lots to explore and do. We went just out of season so the dog had a wonderful time on all the beaches. Highly recommended!

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.
