Brittany

Our holiday houses are located in Finistere, Brittany. This magical part at the far Western tip of France is reknowned for its natural beauty and rich traditions.

The coastline is varied and unspoilt, and authentic villages appear untouched for centuries with beautiful stone houses that cluster around intricate churches.

Having seen many of the ‘best’ beaches in the world, we feel that Finistere can offer some that are the equal to any other. The spectacular coastline has everything from big open surfing beaches, to sheltered intimate coves. The water is extremely clear in the summer and even in peak season, the best beaches are never crowded. One can walk the coastal paths, surf, sail, and windsurf, the area has a huge choice for all the family.

For lovers of fine food, there is nothing quite as satisfying as shopping at a French food market, the variety of local produce and specialities is a real treat for ‘Les gourmandes’. Eating out is consistently excellent and good value, whether it’s a simple bistrot, or a chic, sophisticated Michelin-starred establishment, there is choice for all tastes.

Spectacular parks, gardens and chateaux are easy to find, and kids always enjoy all the outdoor activities on offer.
Why fly half way around the world when you can enjoy a holiday in an area so naturally beautiful, with so much to offer is right on your doorstep?!
