Down the country driveway that splits into two (each leading to a gîte) is a sweet little hideaway, a stone cottage for two (and a child). There’s a gravelled area outside with a strip of lawn and a terrace for sunsets, and views to the Pointe du Raz, Brittany’s Land’s End… you can see the Ile de Sein on a good day. The area is a nature lover’s paradise, a wild landscape of beaches and sea, Cornwall as it used to be – all you’ll hear are the gulls and the birds. Step in to a fresh, open-plan and tile-floored space: a kitchen compact, sunny and bright, with a fridge, microwave and oven, and a sitting room with a vast open fireplace (sheer delight on a dark windy night). Find deep sills and upright timbers, a little sofa, wicker chairs, the original staircase. Up to the mezzanine to find a single bed, then into the bedroom, captivating, charming, a romantic surprise under white sloping walls; the bathroom (super chic) is downstairs. You’ll find shops and a Friday market in Plomodiern (one mile), and an outstanding restaurant, L’Auberge des Glazicks, whose young chef is a master of ‘terre et mer’ cuisine – don’t miss it!
