Loll on velvet sofas or wrap up warm on the patio; the ocean views surprise and delight you as you open the door. This former light-keeper’s cottage is a lovely retreat, with a kitchen fit for chefs and a panorama from every window.
Stroll into Esquibien for croissants and crepes; hop in the car to Audierne. This popular seaside port has a sailing school in summer and a market on Saturdays and Wednesdays. As for beaches, the Plage de Trescadec, safe for families, is five minutes down the coastal path, with sands, swims, and lifeguards in summer. St Tugen beach, set among wild protected sand dunes, is an hour’s walk but worth every step.
As darkness falls, light the fire pit outside. Or snuggle up on a sofa beneath the great glass roof on the landing and raise a glass to the stars.
