About Isabelle Hellequin
Isabelle: I am in love with decoration so I wanted to transform this place into a cosy and generous place by using natural and fine material such as oak (in the kitchen, the cupboard shutters, the shutters and the doors from the inside are made with oak by the DJP company in Concarneau), glass (stone like doorknobs from the glass factory in Brehat), and clay (enameled tiles with Hermine decoration from Josse. I cannot forget the talented artist from Concarneau, Valerie le Roux who knows how to get inspiration from the sea to make her vases, dishes, bowls, table cloths, and dish cloths. I want to thank Michael Rannou for his beautiful photos. Jean: my hometown is the Walled City. I am a professional masseur-physiotherapist. My passion is sailing boats. For the last three years, I have been busy restoring “Târâ”, a magnificent 52-year-old sailing boat made with wood that belonged to Professor Jacques Monod. My goal is not only to bring it back to its original state but also to correct some construction mistakes in order to allow it to go through its next 50 years. When I found some free time I finished the floor of the apartment. My wife wanted to decorate the house. Some of the photos and the objects on the walls belonged to her. Have a nice stay.
Isabelle Hellequin purchased this Apartment in 2012

Appointments of the apartment and its location, over the top!
This apartment has been designed and furnished with obvious love for art and design and with the best of appliances and a terrific shower. The location could not be better, but realize it is on the 2 floor (means 3 flights but not a spiral staircase). Having a private covered parking space is a real plus. Concarneau is a perfect base for traveling the southern part of Brittany and this true home away, from home is a perfect place to spend quality time. The hostess (Isabelle) could not have been more courteous and attentive and speaks English very well.
A lovely, well positioned property perfect for wandering out and exploring Concarneau
We were welcomed by Isabelle who was lovely, and very friendly and helpful. The property is beautifully located just opposite Les Halles (the covered market) which is open 7 days of the week and so convenient for buying the breakfast croissants and bread. Everything you need is provided in the apartment, even a couple of umbrellas (which came in very useful!). The beds are very comfortable, and the showers were lovely - such a change from the usual trickle in holiday rental property. The added bonus of a covered secure private garage is great. We wouldn't hesitate to recommmend friends to stay in this property, it really is a little gem and we loved it.
J'ai eu énorment de plaisir à vous accueillir.

Happy new year 2016.
Thank you for your message.....
Gorgeous apartment, perfect location
The property is in the heart of concarneau, no more than 10 mins walk from everything you would want to see including the old town, beaches, indoor and outdoor markets, bars and restaurants. Yet there is no problem with noise at all - the outdoor market set up immediately outside whilst we slept soundly! The apartment is really well appointed - we self-catered with some of the great produce from the markets and enjoyed the use of high tech appliances and quality cookware. The main bedroom is lovely, bed very comfy, shower brilliant. We didn't use the other bedroom but it looked great and we used the extra space to spread out. The secure parking was a great bonus - we were on a motorbike so could lock it up and have no concerns for the duration.
Isabelle is a great host - very friendly and welcoming and we really appreciated her flexibility on departure time and her patience with our attempts at speaking French!
Thanks a lot for this lovely meet.
I hope you had a good stay in Crozon.
Thank you very much for your comment on Abriel website.
Hoping that other English people come to visit me !!!!!!!!

Heir to the fishing industry, Concarneau grew around its port. It was at first constructed on a small island, which was fast surrounded by forts (the very famous Ville Close, the Walled City). This coastal city expanded quickly with the cannery industry. If you go for a walk on the cliffs, you will be able to admire the fishing port and the sailing harbour as well as the fine sandy beaches and the small coves of this seaside resort.
