Looking toward the Kitchen

Stone-built cottage, within walking distance to the beach


Our cottage is in Brittany on the North West coast of France. It is in a great location for a seaside holiday, with the sea only a 25 min stroll (for those active types) or 5 minutes away by car.

Though off the beaten tourist track (no crowds, no big hotels), the area is much sought after for its beaches and water sports. The nearby coast features exquisite white sand beaches, quiet coves, fishing ports and a cliff path giving superb views over the Bay of Audierne.

This is an unspoiled part of France, proud of its heritage, welcoming to guests and free of crowds, huge hotels and over-crowding.


Convenient to beaches and town
Within walking distance (or a short drive) is the town center of Audierne with village shops, bars and restaurants, and a lively Saturday market selling local produce, seafood, cheese, local hard cider and charcuterie. There is a bakery just around the corner for your morning croissant. There is a river and footpaths through the woods. There are also many miles of pathways along the coast for walking or cycling.

An unspoiled region of France
Beyond all the phenomenal beaches (including two world-class surfing beaches) there is much to do in this very typical, very lively, yet very off-the-beaten tourist track.

The Pointe du Raz (the End of the World) is just at the other end of Audierne. The ferry for the Ile de Sein leaves from the harbor here. Nearer home there are a river and footpaths through the woods.

The exquisite medieval city of Quimper with its renowned cathedral is a 30 minute drive away. Benodet and Pont-Aven, both popular holiday destinations, are only a short drive away.

The area is littered with ancient Celtic standing stones. Carnac is not far away, but there are many impressive dolmens right here, overlooking the ocean.

“"We had an absolutely magical week in Brittany. The house is adorable and was absolutely spic-and-span when we arrived. It really feels like a traditional fisherman's cottage, and I loved seeing the ocean as soon as I stepped out the door.

The area is absolutely phenomenal and we felt that at the end there was so much more to explore. The hikes were fabulous and even if our girls were real troupers we both felt it would be wonderful to come back just the two of us and do the hike around the "Pointe de Raz" and the rest of the coastal trail.

I was very surprised by the beaches - I was expecting pebble-y beaches like on the Pacific NorthWest and couldn't believe the stretches of golden sand before my eyes - wow! One day was even mild enough for Franck and the girls to go for a dip - I wasn't quite that brave. "

“This was our second visit, and we enjoyed it even more than last time. Excellent surfing beaches within easy reach, good restaurants in Audierne close by. We even had warm sunshine! For anyone looking for good value no-frills self-catering accommodation this is an excellent choice. We were welcomed warmly, and appreciated several improvements and some redecoration since last year. A memorable week - thank you.”

“We were disappointed by the suburban feel to the area and the proximity of the radio mast. Loved the town and harbour, but it was a bit far to walk through it and to the beach beyond and very trafficky over the bridge for small children. Our family is very conscious of green issues and we did not want to use the car. Those with bikes might be happier.  Malcolm and Darina scored highest marks for thoughtful kindness and the spotless condition of the cottage. We also appreciated the relaxed attitude of the owners about extra children and two dogs ( although two of us did move into a hotel as it was very cramped.) This is basic and good value accommodation, in a potentially lovely area but for us it lacked atmosphere. ”

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - excellent beaches, good food nearby and well off the beaten track. Comfortbale, plenty of room, clean and well cared for. A warm welcome from Malcolm, who called in midway through our stay to check all was well. Good basic equipment, no frills, excellent value. A bit more hanging space in bedrooms would be a good idea. The midges are active in this area and like English flesh - come equipped! We hope to return!”

“This property is extremely quaint and situated in a good location for exploring the local area. The town has everything needed for shopping. English is spoken in the Tourist Information office, which was helpful. The nearest beach is beautiful, but we found it well outside comfortable walking distance. The lack of storage, both upstairs and down, is an issue at the cottage. However, we had a fabulous time and would certainly go back very soon.”

“House is Spacious and perfectly situated for visiting a great region of France. Within a 5 minute drive or easy walking distance to fantastic beaches of glorious white sands and the picturesque port of Audierne. Ideal for a peaceful relaxing holiday. Many walking/cycling tracks close by. Our hosts hospitality was exceptional and really added to our enjoyment of the holiday. ”

“I really enjoyed this property. It was quiet, within walking distance from the coast, stores, and cafes. The neighbors are very friendly. The kitchen is fully functional for heavy cooking. Audierne, the neighboring town, is an extremely quaint and picturesque commercial area-- great for restaurants and open air markets.”

“Ref 9577: 26 rue Pierre Brossolette My wife and I rented the above property from June 7 to 14. The house was very clean on our arrival and we received a good briefing from the owner’s brother on the running of the house and some of the local points of interest. Additionally, Malcolm and Darina checked that we had no problems during our visit. But there are a number of issues and I hope that the comments below will help they are all intended to be constructive. These comments are based on our experience both as renters of properties on many occasions in France and as one-time owners of a property in France that was rented out. Firstly, in my opinion it is an exaggeration to say that the house sleeps six (max) since this implies that the rest of the house has matching facilities for six. This is not so and the statement that “there is room for six in the living room and six in the dining room” is not true in that there is only one room for both dining and ‘living.’ There is only one soft chair and a two-person sofa the dining table seats only four in comfort (there are only four dining chairs). I question the suitability of the house for children other than pre-toddlers given there is no garden. The kitchen inventory is limited for example, no scissors, no serving dishes, no milk/cream jug and only two wine glasses. Three water glasses and three small tumblers do not represent a proper inventory. One of the salad servers was damaged. There are other refinements which might be provided, eg., a kitchen clock There is no TV and indeed no DVD player, both considered essential by most tenants. Upstairs the furniture is minimal – only one bedside light and table in the main bedroom. No chairs or other furniture on which to put clothes. We have, in other rentals, had a ‘black book’ amassing local information on shops and stores, local sights and, for example, weekly markets. Nor was there a ‘welcome package,’ Further point that the owners need to address are (i) the extensive damp on two internal walls, (ii) the sagging rainwater gutter over the front of the house (iii) the bathroom taps which need servicing (they are both very hard to turn off) (iv) the electric radiators are old and the controls deficient (v) there were no smoke detectors. These comments may seem picky – but the rental market is competitive and high standards are increasingly expected by holiday makers. Sincerely, John Evans ”

“We had a fantastic time, the house exceeded our expectations and we felt we got our moneys worth. Its a great house for a family, and the caretakers were exceptional! The description was very accurate, and I will definitely recommend it to anybody considering a vacation in France, especially to those who want a quiet, local experience.”

“I just wanted to send a quick note to say that we had an absolutely wonderful
time. The property managers were perfect hosts, and their recommendations and advice were very welcome. I'm happy to be in Paris, but confess that I woke up this
morning thinking about the walk I took every morning down to the
boulangerie/patisserie every morning. The time we spent there far
exceeded my (already high) expectations, and we'll be talking about it
together and with our friends for a long time. What a delightful part of
the world!”

“I LOVED my time in Brittany! The cottage was exactly right for the dogs and me even without a garden since there were good places nearby to take them. I thought the kitchen was all I could have wanted and the little house delightful. The property managers really made my stay delightful. I really loved having so many towels and tea towels - what luxury!”

“The cottage was clean and comfortable and we were met by a very friendly Englishman who gave us the key. The lack of garden makes it less than ideal for young children although ours did enjoy playing in the loft bedroom and having snail races on the outside walls. It would have been nice to have somewhere to sit outside in the evenings (rather than the road - which we used). Audierne and the surrounding area are beautiful and there is plenty to do. ”

“we arrived in Audierne on a bright sunny afternoon .From the outside the house looked impressive with its location off the main road but easy to find .We loved the authentic shutters.It proved easy to park outside - a relief as it was not easy to see online and with three children there was a lot of luggage to unload! We were met promptly by the person managing the property he was friendly and informative also visited on our last day to see how we enjoyed ourselves we had contact numbers in case there were any problems. The boys loved the loft bedroom and spacious area to play and run around.Be careful of the sloping walls as i banged my head several times in the first week!!! Would probably bring my own duvets next time -its a matter of what you are used to. There was a bright living dining area where some welcoming flowers were left by the people caretaking-thank you a nice touch. The dining table was cosy to sit around a fifth chair had been thoughtfully supplied but not really big enough for a family of five. Although the seating was adequate there could have been extra cushions or beanbags as there wasnt enough room for us all to sit in comfort.The seat covers could do with updating. The kitchen was fine ,there was an adequate supply of utensils etc The gas cooker was easy to use .There is minimal storage for supplies but then it was a great excuse to eat out and sample the lovely cafes and restaurants! We appreciated the games left had lots of fun and didnt really miss having no TV.(We know we could have asked for one but to be honest we were glad that we didnt!) This property although not perfect was very good value for money considering the present exchange rate . we loved the location there were two beautiful beaches within walking distance and numerous interesting places to visit within 30-40 minutes drive or less. A great base for exploring.The website did not do the town justice - a very pleasant surprise”

“"Al and I have just got back from our European trip. We had a wonderful six weeks and your cottage in Brittany was perfect. Malcolm and ‘D’ were very helpful and a comfort to know we had English speaking help available if we needed it. The weather was unbelievable, we were out every day exploring the dramatic coast and romantic villages! Would love to do it all again.

Many thanks and please give our regards and appreciation to Malcolm and ‘D’."”
