The Perfect Place!

Whether you are looking for a romantic break or a family holiday, this is the place to be! The Cottage has been renovated to a very high standard, everything you need and more. The bed is very comfortable and our daughter loved the sofabed downstairs. Having a bath is always a bonus as not everyone likes just a shower when on holiday. The woodburner gave out loads of heat in the evening when the temperature dipped, (it was April!), thanks to Mick for the wood! My husband loved it so much he is planning to install one in our house!
The surroundings are picturesque and quiet, but with enough bustle in nearby Pontrieux and Paimpol if you need it. Market day on Tuesday in Paimpol is a must, especially, if like my husband, you adore fresh seafood! The Intermarche in Pontrieux is big enough for everything you need without being daunting like some of the bigger supermarkets we have been to in France. The Breton Gateau is a must!
Eating out is great, too. The Schooner down by the Port is great for snacks, the kids loved it and it was great to sit outside in the sunshine, munching kebabs and watching the boats. For a more upmarket, romantic meal, Paimpol has many superb fish restaurants by the harbour which also do a good steak!
The beaches are all just a short, scenic drive away. Anyone who has ever been to Devon and Cornwall around 30 years ago will feel right at home in the villages which you pass through and the scenery you will see on the way. Brehec is just like a Cornish village, and Pont Blanc has the most perfect sand, ideal for building sandcastles!
The owners have just the right mix of helpfulness and information. There if you need anything, but not in the way. Their kids were great and certainly helped ours feel at home.
All in all an excellent holiday destination and we thoroughly recommend it!
