Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Erquy area

House with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 5 WC, sleeps 10, close to the beach

A spacious 5 bedroom family house (sleeps 10) located between the small Breton fishing port of Dahouet and the adjacent huge sandy bay of Pleneuf Val Andre. The beach of Val Andre is 450 yards from the front door with its unspoiled promenade and panoramic views of the bay of St Brieuc. All water sport activities are catered for by the local centre, and if you prefer to stay on dry land there are miles and miles of rugged coastline to explore on the well maintained and indicated footpaths. Val Andre has a good variety of shops, restaurants and boutiques, as well as its renowned golf course and casino. In the other direction at the same distance is the fishing port of Dahouet with its small marina and local fishing fleet. There are cafes and restaurants to discover but not so many as to be overwhelming, the welcome is typically Breton and we are sure you will appreciate the local

seafood dishes. The house offers a private south facing timber terraced courtyard.

Golf: The closest golf course to the house is Pléneuf Val André only a mile away. Val André:

One of the top links courses in France, the views over the coast and cliffs are stunning and the backdrop of rolling green countryside is spectacular - 18 holes, par 72, 5836 metres.

Sable D'Or Les Pins: Lying close to the Cap Fréhel headland and the superb beaches of Vieux-Bourg and Les Sables d’Or - 18 Holes, Par: 70, Length: 5510 Yards.

Other golf courses in St Malo, Dinard, St Cast, Les Ormes.

Water sports and beaches: The Breton sailing centres offer a wide range of water activities for all ages. It is worth checking their range of boats as well as their courses which they run for kids and adults.

The closest sailing centre is on Val André beach. You can rent a variety of sailing boats, windsurfers, sea kayaks, canoes. The centre also organises excellent sailing courses for children and adults as well as sand yachting courses.

Just at the end of the road!

Markets: This is very much part of French life and a delight to view and choose from vegetables, delicatessen as well as seafood stalls. Not to mention the last gadget for which a vendor will invariably find 1000 uses. Most markets will end late morning.

Monday: Saint Quay Portrieux; Tuesday: Pléneuf; Wednesday: Matignon, Plouha and St Brieuc; Thursday: Binic, Dinan and Lamballe; Friday: Wal André and Saint Cast le Guildo; Saturday: Erquy and Saint Brieuc; Sunday: Saint Brieuc

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the perfect holiday home in France. Very comfortable and practical with the well appointed open plan kitchen and living room. We appreciated having 3 bathrooms and 5 toilets and particularly enjoyed the provencale kitchen outdoors.

The close proximity to the pretty harbour with several very good restaurants and the easy walk to busy Val Andre and its child friendly beach ensures it meets the requirements of every member of the family.

The easy stroll down to the local boulangerie to get croissants and baguettes every morning was a highlight of our holiday.

We've already recommended this propperty to other members of our family and friends.

Convenient, comfy base for exploring Cote D'armour

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our holiday in Isabelle and Dave's house and they couldn't have been more welcoming. The house was very comfortable (especially comfy beds!) and is spacious enough for two families. Located on a road (albeit quite busy) leading directly (about 5-10 min walk) to the the seafront at Val Andre, it is handy for walking to the beach and to restaurants (La Villa (italian/pizza) was perfect with great food and well set up for young children). At the back, the house is accessed from a quiet lane leading to the Port and the local bakery (excellent!). We had a couple of days of sunshine and besides visiting the beaches within walking distance from the house, we had fun outings to Sable D'Or (and fun riding around on the Rosalie bikes) and Erquy. On the wet days, the children loved our visits to the aquarium in St Malo (predictably busy but very good), a fantastic 'Asian zoo' (ZooParc de Tregomeur) , and the Terrarium de Kerdanet in Plouagat (all within an hour's drive from the house). I would recommend the house for families with (if you put stair gates up where appropriate) or without young children.

Will definitely revisit!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect holiday home for a large family - spacious, well-appointed rooms and plenty of bath/shower facilities. Most importantly, it is conveniently located for the beach at le Val André, the harbour at Dahouët and all other amenities. The space at the back of the house is secure and safe for children; and family barbecues are not to be missed!! We will definitely be staying here again.

Beautiful seaside house in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely house this is. We, two families, stayed for a week in the house which is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. The beds were really comfy and the house was equipped with everything 4 adults and 6 children needed. We would personally like to thank Isabelle and Dave who were great to deal with in all stages of the booking and holiday. We would highly recommend this house and hope to pay a return visit in the future. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

Great family accommodation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Pleneuf-Val-Andre for two weeks during the summer with our family and grandchild. Lovely big, comfortable house, close to the road which leads to the beautiful beach. There are lots of activities such as rock pooling and sailing (the beach front promenade is great for a relaxing stroll). The town is super with excellent restaurants, ice cream parlour, shops and bakery! We really loved Pleneuf-Val-Andre and hope to visit again. Many thanks to Isabelle and Dave for their wonderful home.

Lovely property close to great beach

  • 5 of 5

A family of four of us, with children aged 5 and 7 stayed in the house for a wonderful holiday during Easter 2014. We have rented a lot of houses in many countries over the years and we have to say that this house is superbly appointed, with plenty of space for up to 10 people, as advertised. All of the bedrooms (only 3 of the 5 used!) are very comfortable, there are 3 bathrooms including the wet room in the utility room, with good, strong showers (nothing worse than a weak shower!). The utility room, with built-in wet room, is a great idea to rinse or shower off sand from the beach which means nobody traipses sand into the house and there is also lots of space to hang up any laundry both inside and out. The kitchen is very well kitted out with large fridge/freezer and large range cooker with granite worktops and there is a good Wi-Fi signal throughout the house with a decent connection speed. The garden is a real sun trap and the perfect place to unwind with a glass of something cold after a long day on the beach.

The kids, and grown-ups, fell in love with the beautiful, sandy beach at Val-André, exploring the rock pools, fishing off the rocks, and even swimming in the sea in April! We ate several times at "Le Val Joli" restaurant in town which did great moules-frites and generous portions of salads, burgers, steaks, etc., and also had good takeaway pizzas from “La Villa” pizzeria opposite. We also had a lovely lunch at "Quai Ouest" by the harbour in Erquy.

We would thoroughly recommend staying at this house to any larger family or two families and we will return with another family of four as soon as we can. Thank you to Dave and Isabelle for providing such a wonderful property.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house three years running which is a recommendation in itself. It is lavishly equipped particularly with bathrooms/WC s which are more than adequate to meet the demands of ten people and there is the space and equuipment to wash and dry things quickly, very useful when the weather is wet as it sometimes is in Brittany. The house has always been in immaculate condition when handed over to us. It is well maintained, accurately described in the listing description,the owners provided good cistomer service and we would certainly recommend the property to friends and relatives. The main attraction for us is the excellent beaches and swimming available in this area.

Car: recommended

Pléneuf-Val-André has three faces. It is a tourist resort with magnificent beaches. It also has a traditional little fishing harbour called Dahouët. And finally it has a very lively town centre. This diversity resembles that of the multiple aspects of Brittany.

The surrounding areas contain many sites of historical interest including medieval towns (Dinan, Moncontour) manor houses, châteaux (lChateau de Bien Assis, La Roche Jagu), Forts (Fort La Latte) and churches. There are town markets to wander around, ample choice of restaurants and cafes and a fantastic number of beaches to choose from, boat trips are also a great way to spend the day. Val Andre also has a renowned golf course. If you like walking the 'Sentiers des Douaniers' (Customs officer patrol paths) are particularly inviting and the view of the Saint-Brieuc Bay is magnificent. A large number of sports are catered for, look at the list of activities available or contact us.
