A spacious 5 bedroom family house (sleeps 10) located between the small Breton fishing port of Dahouet and the adjacent huge sandy bay of Pleneuf Val Andre. The beach of Val Andre is 450 yards from the front door with its unspoiled promenade and panoramic views of the bay of St Brieuc. All water sport activities are catered for by the local centre, and if you prefer to stay on dry land there are miles and miles of rugged coastline to explore on the well maintained and indicated footpaths. Val Andre has a good variety of shops, restaurants and boutiques, as well as its renowned golf course and casino. In the other direction at the same distance is the fishing port of Dahouet with its small marina and local fishing fleet. There are cafes and restaurants to discover but not so many as to be overwhelming, the welcome is typically Breton and we are sure you will appreciate the local seafood dishes. The house offers a private south facing timber terraced courtyard.
