A dreamy coastal light shimmers over the whole flat island, then comes the Atlantic breeze to blow happy birds, boaters and cyclists in all directions. Even in thronging summer, peace reigns inside the scented garden of this smart, comfortable modern house where each originally-furnished B&B room has its own entrance and wee hedged terrace. Friendly and sociable Jean makes guests feel very welcome. He’s a former actor who spent time living in the United States – you will get to know him and the others over breakfast at one big table in the family living room. Binge on seafood and rare local potatoes, swim off wide sandy beaches, explore rock pools in this ideal holiday place.
