Stunning, peaceful location
A well equipped apartment with a lovely balcony and water's edge garden. Good car-parking. A good base for touring Finisterre. Helpful British owners.
Gorgeous view, great location.
We stayed for two weeks in April/June. During that time this small fishing village was quite sleepy, making for a quiet relaxing visit. The views from the back balcony overlooking the inlet were wonderful. The flat was spacious and well furnished.
A walk over to the Abbaye museum and grounds is a must. The ancient church and cemetery are only a few steps away. The entire Crozon peninsula is an easy drive with gorgeous beaches and rocky cliffs. The hiking along the Sentier Cotier was fabulous. The hosts were wonderfully accommodating and had great advice for seeing the area.
So pleased Britt and Debbie enjoyed their stay on the Crozon
Peninsular . We were very concerned regards noise being made by builders renovating a nearby property , but they
we're very understanding as they knew we could nothing
about it . Landevennec normally being an extremely quiet
sleepy coastal village . The property had been left very clean
and tidy and we do hope they come back some time in the
Many Thanks. Chris & Pat Giles
Lovely appartment with everything we could possibly need.
A quiet scenic hamlet which had great views across the bay.
Tranquil location - Superb apartment!
Enjoyed a fabulous two weeks in this superb apartment. The living area was on the first floor and the views from the balcony were beautiful - so peaceful and quiet! A great spot at any time of day. The apartment is very well equipped with everything that we needed. We like to cook so it was refreshing to find plenty of suitable pots, pans, bowls and utensils to enable us to rustle up some tasty meals using local produce. There's a bar next door that serves simple meals including moules and frites which were delicious and a creperie further up the road which was also very good. Plenty of lovely beaches and walks, all within 20 to 30 minutes of the apartment. Reminded us of Cornwall, Gower Peninsular and Pembrokeshire coast. Beautiful views, long sandy beaches and dramatic clifftop walks as well as plenty of old fortifications. Will definitely go back again.
So pleased you enjoyed your holiday so much. Your comments regards the apartment makes all the hard work over the years in the renovation worth while .
We do look forward to meeting up on your next visit to the Peninsular.
P.S. Thanks for leaving the apartment so clean and tidy much appreciated.
Tranquil with a picturesque surrounding
If it's a tranquil place to stay in wonderful French countryside, this is the place for you. The balcony overlooking the water is the perfect way to start your day with a cup of coffee. In the evening, sit there again and watch the sun go down with a glass of wine. The owners, Chris, Pat and Valerie could not have been more welcoming and are a font of knowledge. Local places we would recommend to visit are Locronan, Cameret-sur Mer, Quimper, Morgat and Brittany's highest point, Menez Hom. If you have children, then there are plenty of safe sandy beaches around.
Thanks Bill and Barbara for such a nice review . Hope you
manage to visit again one day , enjoy your stay further south
and have a safe trip back to Florida , Many thanks for leaving
the apartment so clean and tidy .
The apartment we stayed in was decorated to a high standard and had more than just the basics. It was also very clean, literally a home away from home, we felt very comfortable there. The views are spectacular and the setting idyllic. We loved the garden and especially the bbq area at the bottom of the garden. We spent many a pleasant evening down there barbequeing and watching the comings and goings on the estuary. The Crozon peninsula is very scenic with amazing beaches. We loved everything about our holiday and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Thank you so much for writing such a lovely review for us - we are so lucky to have such lovely people to stay ,- wonderful guests who left the property immaculate. Hope to see you again one day.
The Crozon Peninsula
Here the dramatic Atlantic coast is at its most spectacular. This beautiful Peninsula, which is part of the protected National Parks of France, is truly untouched by commercialism. It is a paradise for those who enjoy uncrowded wide sandy beaches, hidden coves, water sports of every variety, spectacular cliff top walks, quaint fishing villages, fresh sea food, and is all self-contained on this peaceful Peninsula – and not a parking meter in sight!
So much to see and do, here are a few suggestions though there is much information in the property:
Take a boat trip which goes from the quayside along the beautiful reaches of the Rade of Brest which is part of the National Parks of France. You will see the superb modern architecture of the new suspension bridge Pont de Terenez.
Visit the famous Abbaye Saint Guenole de Landevennec and museum. The Abbey which is still home to Monks dates back to the 5th Century www.abbaye-landevennec.cef.fr
Walk along the beautiful allotted paths from the village, or have a game of tennis on the village court. (arrange in the Mairie’s office.)
The village has a small restaurant, creperie and Tourist Office (in the peak season) and small general food shop (you may wish to order bread as they do sell out quite quickly.)
The market square of this pretty historic town is surrounded by little shops and an interesting church, it also has a small market every day and once a week a much larger one. There are several supermarkets, doctors (who speak English) and a small hospital, vets and a Tourist Office, boutiques, Banks, restaurants, book shops etc..
The largest supermarket is Le Clerc (turn right out of the D60 at junction on main road and follow D791 to Tal ar Groas. Go straight across roundabout and continue across next mini roundabout. You will then come to a main roundabout where you turn right and a short way along you will see LeClerc. (If you went straight on at the roundabout you would come to the main town) There is now a small LeClerc at the roundabout in Tal ar Groas (not so far as Crozon) for bread you don’t even have to get out of the car!
Many restaurants in Crozon, Morgat and Camaret, from Le Mutin Goumand off the square in Crozon which is quite expensive but very good, to L’Oceanic much less expensive but very good on Route de Camaret. Camaret has many excellent fish restaurants, we like Hotel Paris and Cote Mer but there are so many…
Lots of wonderful uncrowded sandy beaches surround the Peninsula. La Palou is famous for surfing but all are active with water sports.
There are spectacular cliff top walks all around the Peninsula. I would particularly recommend the one that runs between Morgat and Cap de la Chevre. This walk can be accessed for a shorter walk from the Maison des Mineraux. You will see this on the map north of Morgat, or from the Port of Morgat for a longer walk.
Children will enjoy the adventure park in Crozon (from tree top trapezes , mini golf, paintballing etc.) www.funpark-crozon.fr
There are many hire shops with all water sports gear.
A centre for canoeing and kayaking, Les Viliers de Terenez, is on right hand side of the D791 after you exit from Le Faou and before you reach the new bridge. (Phone 0298 819 068)
The famous annual Festival of Music Bout du Monde is held in August
A lovely seaside resort with large boat harbour, plenty of good seafood restaurants and shops..
A swimming pool with water chute. Wide sandy beach.
Plage de l’Aber
I particularly like the beautiful beach at l’Aber. You take the third exit at the Tal ar Groas roundabout.
Kids will have great fun sand yachting on the beach.
Menez Hom – Wonderful views being the highest point of the Peninsula.
A quaint fishing village, popular with artists. Many galleries (in the narrow back streets) and many good restaurants. There is a sandy beach to the west of the seafront.
Visit Cap de la Chevre and Point des Espagnols for the most spectacular views of the sea crashing on the rocks.
You will be delighted to visit this picturesque village, with its cobbled streets and quaint old houses. Some delicious Breton delicacies in the little shops.
A little further afield, by about 1 hour:
Oceanopolis is a must – the largest indoor aquarium in Europe. This can be reached by boat from Le Fret (20 mins from the house). Be careful to check the return times of the ferry.
A beautiful historic Cathedral town. The river Odet flows through the centre. A wealth of shops and boutiques.
Various festivals are held in Quimper.
A little further still:
Pont Aven – a very pretty place, famous for the artists who have lived and painted there – Paul Gauguin being one of them.
A lively historic City. Visit the old town entered through an arch in the surrounding city walls. Lots of li
