About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 10, south facing sea view terrace

Situated in the unspoilt and beautiful Baie d'Audierne, this family holiday house has been carefully designed to offer modern comfort in a traditionally built house and commands 180° views of the ocean. It has a comfortable dining and lounge area with a log fire opening hwhich opens onto a large south facing terrace, 2 en suite bedrooms with king size beds and shower rooms, 3 twin rooms with a separate bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, 2 toilets, a basement utility room and a vast garage. The house is situated in its own garden with a swing and trampoline for the children.... let them play while you sip a glass of wine and watch the sunset over the ocean from the sun terrace.

Although this house is just perfect for a summer holiday we would also like to point out that it is in an ideal location for all the surfing beaches in South Brittany. So if you're looking for a holiday with a difference during the high surfing seasons from October through to June we are offering a free surf lesson for all the family for each week reserved.

Beautiful home near the sea.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home near the beach with views of the sea. Plouhinec is a quiet village but just a short drive from Audierne where there are more beaches, lots of restaurants and shopping. There were 8 of us in the house which has plenty of room. We enjoyed our stay.

Tres bien!

  • 4 of 5

We had a week at Jean Yves and Lorraine's property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lounge and dining room are nicely proportioned and spacious enough to relax in the evening. The kitchen is also well stocked enabling evening meals to be easily prepared and enjoyed over a glass of wine.

The outside patio has nice views of the sea and is a pleasant place to enjoy a sundowner if the weather permits!

There are excellent beaches nearby, with Mesperleuc a particular stand out, and the property acts as a really good base for exploring Southern Finistere.

We would recommend buying some locally caught fish at the Plouhinec poissonerie near to Audierne, delicious and cooked to perfection on the BBQ.

All in all a very nice stay!

Great holiday house in a great locaton

  • 5 of 5

The house is fantastic, spacious and has the most amazing views of the sea. We stayed as two families and there was plenty of room for all of us. It was beautifully clean, the beds super comfy and the house very well equipped including British TV which was a bonus during the Olympics! Jean Yves and Lorraine were great hosts and very helpful during our stay recommending a fabulous restaurant in St Croix for dinner. We would definitely give this house 5 stars and hope to return next year.

Beautiful house near a lovely sandy beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a weeks holiday in this lovely house. The house was furnished to a high standard, it was actually even nicer than the pictures! The owners lived near and were responsive to any needs.

The area was well placed for visits to Quimper, Pont Aven and Concarneau.

We would certainly go again and can highly recommend it.

Belle de Plouhinec

  • 5 of 5

Malgré les tempêtes (Carmen et Eléanore) le séjour dans cette belle maison avec vue superbe a été très agréable. Atmosphère Britannique dans le salon avec bow-window, 5 belles chambres dont une particulièrement agréable au premier étage. Important pour une pleine occupation, 2 toilettes séparés.

En décembre nous n’avons bien entendu pas profité des extérieurs, mais la propriété est bien arborée. Seul petit bémol, le chemin d’accès (piétons / voitures) est très boueux.

L’accueil des propriétaires est chaleureux.

Je recommande donc sans réserves.
