This early 19th-century farmhouse is only 600 metres from the wild end of a sandy beach and a 15-minute walk from a charming Belle Époque village. Claire and Philip are warm hosts who will soon make you feel like old friends.
Breakfast is a generous spread, served around a big table in the dining room – bread from the local bakery, homemade jams, boiled eggs and cheese, sometimes a cake or crêpes. Bedrooms have space to relax with a book or a board game and you can sit out in the pretty courtyard with a picnic, or ask Claire to order in a platter of fruits de mer from the fishmonger.
Borrow a bicycle – there are six set aside for guests – and cycle to the village, which has a small supermarket, a bakery and several restaurants, as well as a weekly produce market on Thursdays. Evening markets, antique fairs and brocantes take place throughout the summer.
