About Annabel Hillary
I am married with two sets of twins and live in Surrey. I have always loved France and our holiday villa, Les Vents Bleus, has given me an excuse to brush up on my French. I am always happy to advise our holidaymakers on the house and how things work and to recommend interesting places to visit and things to do on the beautiful Presqu'ile de Crozon. We spend a lot of time making sure the house has everything a holidaymaker might need and always review our visitor books for comments and suggestions. It's hugely satisfying to know people have enjoyed staying in our house and the high number of repeat bookings is proof of its enduring appeal.
Annabel Hillary purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Annabel Hillary chose Roscanvel
During our first holiday to Roscanvel we fell in love with the area and decided to buy a holiday house there. With our two sets of twins being only aged 4 and 2 at the time, we wanted a house with all the modern conveniences and with the potential for fun packed holidays, then and in the future. When we saw Les Vents Bleus we fell in love with the spectacular sea views, tranquillity and the close proximity of a pretty cove just a two minute walk from the house, which is perfect for swimming. There are many beautiful sandy beaches in the local area, whether you want to body board, surf, snorkel or rock pool and plenty of walks across rugged cliff tops, past forts and landmarks. Nearby Camaret and Morgat are picturesque small seaside towns with many excellent restaurants and shops.
What makes this Villa unique
The view from the balcony of Les Vents Bleus is truly spectacular, and there is nothing nicer than sitting with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, watching the boats and the occasional submarine! Les Vents Bleus is ideally located for exploring the Presqu'ile de Crozon, which is a protected area of natural beauty. It is perfect for a family holiday or for a relaxing break to 'get away from it all.' The house is very well equipped, with a high standard of furnishings and décor and modern conveniences. We also have a number of original artworks on the walls. Our kayak is available for hire and many of our guests have enjoyed using this on the local beach. The house is a 50 minute drive from Brest airport, 1 hour 45 from Roscoff, 3 hours from St Malo or 5 hours from Caen or Cherbo

Brilliant Brittany Holiday
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.
Great Sea Views
This property is in a stunning location with uninterrupted sea views which can be enjoyed from most of the rooms and the balcony. The local beach is just a couple of minutes away and is very safe for swimming, paddle boarding etc. the kayak was a real hit. My kids visited this beach every day. Other sandy and surfing beaches could be found nearby. The house is very clean and comfortable and was equipped with everything we needed. This is a good house in a beautiful location and somewhere we would definitely come back to again
Idyllic holiday in Roscanvel
My wife and our three young boys had a week at Les Vents Bleus at the end of July 2014. We were fortunate enough to have fantastic weather, but the whole holiday was really trumped by the fantastic house which we stayed in. It was perfectly set up for a family with young children and the physical setting was stunning with beautiful views out across the water. The house was very well equiped and although it wasn't necessary we would have been fine had there been one of those rainy Brittany days. We will definitely be returning in the future.
A very well equipped house with stunning views. Plenty of room and it was perfect for children with the easy access to the beach and kayak that was available. Lovely outside eating area and balcony plus garden for the children to play in. Great location and we will definitely go again
