In its own garden, a grassy stroll from a lovely, family-friendly beach – go sailing, surfing, cycling; explore Concarneau, Quimper

A great little family retreat for fans of coastal Brittany. Just a grassy stroll from the lovely, sandy beach at Bot Conan and in its own leafy garden; 12 miles from fortified Concarneau, with its galleries and Friday market and close to the cathedral city of Quimper. From the outside it’s a traditional Breton stone cottage. Inside it’s simply, practically organised to make the most of light and space: an open-plan, well-equipped kitchen/living space; dining table with bench seats, sofa, wicker chairs and a wood-burning stove (fuel supplied); terracotta tiling, blue/grey paintwork. The ground floor bedroom has south and west facing windows and a good bathroom. And upstairs, comfortably under the eaves, are the tongue-and-groove panelled triple and twin-bedded rooms and a shower room. Busiest in high summer of course, super-quiet off season. Take a boat to the Glénan Archipelago, go surfing and sailing, walking and golfing nearby. Borrow bikes, canoes and paddle boards, and use the hot tub and sauna of the owners’ neighbouring glamping site (open May – Oct). Just an easy hour and twenty minutes’ drive from Roscoff.

Local points of interest from Arnaud Polaillon:

Local points of interest from
Arnaud Polaillon:

  • Watersports; fishing, snorkelling, paddle board and canoe from the beach beneath the cottage; at nearby CAP-COZ there is a sailing school, as well as dinghies for you to hire; the famous surf spot LA TORCHE is 35’ drive with surf hire and lessons.
  • GR34 famous coastal footpath pass just in front of the cottage; embark on a day trip to CONCARNEAU and return with the ferry or aim for a well deserved sundowner at BENODET and will fetch you; use our complimentary bikes to explore MOUSTERLIN
  • Sample local cuisine from Chez Hubert brillant bistro food in BEG MEIL to the seaside terrace of "Café du Port" in LA FORET FOUESNANT, or the oyster bench chez Fabienne. La Cornouaille, like Cornwall is cider paradise, fruity, complex and slightly acidic!
  • Tour south Brittany highlights: towns of QUIMPER, CONCARNEAU, PONT-AVEN and LOCRONAN are worth a visit; further away, the scenic roads of CROZON are perfect…with a convertible.
  • Sail to les Glénan archipelago: imagine Scilly Islands in a very small scale but with the same crystal clear waters and white beaches. Daily ferry from BENODET and CONCARNEAU.
  • Golf with a view: the course à LA FORET FOUESNANT is not only pleasant and challenging but with very nice views of the baie de La Foret.
