Sleeps Five – Three Bedrooms – Two Bathrooms
Ty Bili is a typical stone Breton Longere dating from 1836. Full of character, the house has recently been renovated to a very high standard. As with all of our holiday houses, we have made Ty Bili stylish, comfortable and luxurious, whilst keeping as much of the original charm as possible. Great care has been taken to preserve all the original features, and yet add modern touches for a quirky contemporary interior. Downstairs the thick stone walls are covered in a natural lime plaster, and the large glass doors with views over the pretty garden let plenty of light into the large open plan living area with its cosy living area, fireplace and beautiful natural limestone floors. The bedrooms have comfortable beds with white cotton bed linen and the luxury bathrooms are a real treat. The house has top quality fixtures and fittings throughout and individual pieces of art and antiques, and is spaciously designed for five people.
This pretty stone cottage is located in the small hamlet of Primelin only 300m away from the coastal path and pebble beach, and within walking distance of a sheltered sandy beach. The area is famous for its unspoilt, natural coastal scenery with beautiful beaches and stunning coastal walks. With nearby amenities this is the ideal base for a self catering holiday in this beautiful unspoilt part of Brittany. The Cap Sizun, from the Pointe du Raz to the Pointe du Van, has been labelled as one of the top 10 ‘Grand Sites’ in France, which is an accolade of the highest ranking for this exceptional natural environment.
“We have been holidaying in France, particularly Brittany, for 30 years. Ty Bili is the best house we’ve stayed in. Great attention to detail throughout and such a beautiful quiet garden. Having the coastal path on the doorstep has been a bonus.” 23-30 Aug 2013 – Richard, Karen, Hannah and Sarah.
“Thank you Claire and Andrew and particularly Agnes for presenting the cottage so well – the best self catering cottage we have found in France” – 14th – 28th Aug 2015 C&W, Cardiff

The interior of Ty Bili is a great mix of the old and the new. Every effort has been made to retain the original features of the stone building, whilst using natural and high quality materials to make the house a completely comfortable and relaxing place to stay. It is charming, functional and cosy, yet carefully chosen pieces and finishes will please those that like a stylish interior, and want a touch of luxury in their holiday home.
The kitchen is sleek and modern with brand new Siemens appliances, including an induction hob, pyrolyse oven, good size fridge (with small freezer) dishwasher and Nespresso machine. There is plenty of storage space, and a beautiful stone worksurface. The dining table will comfortably seat six.
The living room is dominated by a huge old stone fireplace which now houses a modern, efficient Charnwood wood burner (logs provided). There is a large leather sofa, 32 inch flat screen TV and DVD player with a selection of films (please note TV reception is dependent on being able to navigate the remote control!), and high quality stereo. Wifi is also available.
A passageway leads to a hall/office area with separate WC and a washing machine/tumble dryer room. Here is the second staircase to the third bedroom.
The whole ground floor has smooth, natural limestone tiles.
Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a WC. The main staircase takes you to the Master bedroom which has a 160cm double bed, the second double bedroom which has a ziplink bed, which can be either a 160cm x 200cm double, or two 80 x 200cm single beds, the bathroom, the shower room and separate WC. All the bedrooms have seagrass flooring and high quality beds with egyptian cotton bed linen. The large bathroom is in a tadelakt like finish (a decorative polished concrete) and has a freestanding cast iron roll top bath. The walk in shower room has the same finish and a large stone shower area. There is also a separate WC.
The smaller staircase leads from the downstairs office / hall area to a cosy single bedroom with a large velux window that gives onto the garden, it should be noted that this bedroom is not beside the others and is at the other end of the house.
Ty Bili gives onto it’s own large, private garden, with a nice decked outdoor dining area with wooden table and seating for 6, there is a barbecue, swings for children and a dedicated parking space.
Ty Bili has 100% green, fully renewable electricity.
The house is next door to Ty Traez and is in a small hamlet of stone fisherman’s cottages, in the village of Primelin, which has two restaurants, and a supermarket.
Quiet enough to feel away from it all, but with the convenience of restaurants, local shops, and plenty to do on your doorstep. This is the ideal base for those who are looking for an unspoilt and stunning stretch of coast, exquisite beaches, and an area rich in authenticity. The Cap Sizun is an area of protected coastline that boasts a spectacular coastal footpath, high rocky cliffs, the area is host to some of the most beautiful beaches in the area, with wide open beaches that feel the full force of the Atlantic waves and small sheltered sandy bays great for kids and water sports. The Baie de Trepasses at the end of the peninsula, often features on the lists of the worlds top 10 beaches, and the beaches of St Tugen and Theolen are undiscovered treasures. The nearby Pointe du Raz and the bird reserve of Goulien are two of France’s leading tourist attractions, yet the area remains remarkably undeveloped and has escaped the pitfalls of mass tourism. The area has a network of small quiet roads and there is a cycle path that leads from the Anse du Loch and goes to the Pointe du Raz. This is part of the Veloroute No 5 that follows small roads along the coast to Loctudy. Audierne just 6km away is a bustling marine port with a lively market, gourmet restaurants, an aquarium and is the departure point for the Ferry to the Isle de Sein. Douarnenez is an authentic fishing port and also has a very interesting maritime museum where the exhibits are ‘live’ in that you are free to explore the old fishing boats still on the water – they often have trips out to sea on kayaks and different vessels. Nearby Pont Croix is a small medieval city with the french label ‘petite cite de caractere’. Further afield lies the beautiful medieval town of Quimper, and the endless possibilities that Finistere has to offer.
