|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
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.

This is the perfect holiday home in France. Very comfortable and practical with the well appointed open plan kitchen and living room. We appreciated having 3 bathrooms and 5 toilets and particularly enjoyed the provencale kitchen outdoors.
The close proximity to the pretty harbour with several very good restaurants and the easy walk to busy Val Andre and its child friendly beach ensures it meets the requirements of every member of the family.
The easy stroll down to the local boulangerie to get croissants and baguettes every morning was a highlight of our holiday.
We've already recommended this propperty to other members of our family and friends.
I have recently returned from staying in this property over the New Year period. We chose it because of its flexible accommodation: we were two families, one with two teenagers and the other with two grown up children. The bedroom arrangements worked well for us as did the bathrooms all of which are beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped which was good as we ate in a couple of times and the large table seated 8 of us so no problems there. The living area was cosy and although it wasn't the right time of year to be outside, the patio/bbq area looked like it would be perfect for summer evenings. The house is conveniently located a short walk from Dahouet Port/Pleneuf val Andre with its shops and restaurants. This was important to us as we didn't want to have to drive all the time. We did have a slight issue with the heating early in our stay but Dave the owner, was very quick to resolve this for us and offered to return if there were any other issues, which there weren't. I would recommend this property to families/groups looking for a larger property in this location. Dave and Isobelle looked after us well and we would happily return. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and all the best for 2017.
We loved the house. It was near enough to the beach for the family to walk there comfortably;restaurants also easily strollable.
Boulangerie was brilliant and handy, as was the harbour.
We enjoyed the barbecue area too.
A book outlining local villages and places to visit would have been appreciated. Also we only found the games on the second last day! Dave and Isabelle were very helpful as regards the booking arrangements.
We would hope to come back. Thank you.
We had a wonderful week in Pleneuf - if only it could have been longer. The lovely house is perfect for a large group with lots of space including a neat outside area for barbecues etc and a real suntrap. It was spotless when we arrived and appears very fresh and well cared for inside and out.
The amazing sandy beach (perfect for children of all ages) is a 5-7 minute walk with the town alongside. We were very fortunate to have hot sunny weather so we didn't venture outside the area but just enjoyed walking, running, swimming in the sea. We took our own bicycles which were useful to get the morning croissants - you can hire from nearby.
There is a good choice of restaurants in the town for all budgets - we liked Le Plein des Sens - but we mainly ate at home. We stocked up in the main supermarket a short drive away but otherwise picked up food daily at the local supermarket. Our older children had a fun night out at Space nightclub which is within walking distance. We stayed during the Olympics so were able to enjoy all the highlights on the English TV channel.
We would very much recommend this house and this seaside town to others - and plan to go back in the future.
We stayed here in August 2016. The house is very comfortable with great facilities. The outside dining area and grill were particularly useful. There is an excellent beach just a 10 minute walk away with the marina at Dahouet just a short walk in the other direction. There are also plenty of other activities all within short driving distances. Would definitely recommend as an excellent holiday location.
We had a lovely week in this attractively furnished and comfortable house. We were 7 adults and 2 children and the bedrooms worked well for us. The beds are so comfortable and we really enjoyed eating outside on an evening. The children enjoyed the tv and well stocked video selection and we all found the number of bathrooms perfect for our needs with plenty of hot water for showers and baths. The property was certainly well-maintained and clean and the owners were very helpful whenever we needed. We enjoyed so much walking the back route to the sea and swimming followed by a coffee in town. We ate in most nights but liked having 'moules frites' down by the harbour and pizzas in the pizzeria in town on one of the nights. Theres a large E.Leclerc supermarket one can drive to which is about 5 mins away but we preferred walking to the smaller 8 À Huit supermarket in town (although they don't stock anything gluten-free there). Theres a coffee machine in the kitchen but a cafetiere would have been appreciated too. Thanks so much for being so accommodating and for letting us stay in your lovely house. We had such an enjoyable and sunny week - perfect if you don't want to drive much as everything is within walking distance from the house.
Our party of eleven (8 adults, 2 children and one infant) stayed at the house at the end of July 2016.
The house is spacious, especially the bedrooms and tastefully decorated. We found it really useful having so many bathrooms with so many people. The covered outside eating area was also a great feature that everyone loved, plus the decked area outside is a real sun-trap! There were plenty of large pots and bowls in the kitchen which is essential for a large group and not something I've always found in other holiday homes.
The town and area itself was also good for the children - we went to the boat pond at Dahouet which they enjoyed and the huge beach is about 10 mins walk at a slow (kids) pace. We went to the market (Tues mornings) which we definitely recommend. Also good was Fort La Latte - a fantastic castle on the coast about 30 mins away.
We mainly ate at the house but can recommend La Voile in Dahouet - lovely position by the harbour and good cocktails. And we had takeaway pizza from La Villa which was very tasty.
Overall a very pleasant holiday!
Pléneuf-Val-André has three faces. It is a tourist resort with magnificent beaches. It also has a traditional little fishing harbour called Dahouët. And finally it has a very lively town centre. This diversity resembles that of the multiple aspects of Brittany.
The surrounding areas contain many sites of historical interest including medieval towns (Dinan, Moncontour) manor houses, châteaux (lChateau de Bien Assis, La Roche Jagu), Forts (Fort La Latte) and churches. There are town markets to wander around, ample choice of restaurants and cafes and a fantastic number of beaches to choose from, boat trips are also a great way to spend the day. Val Andre also has a renowned golf course. If you like walking the 'Sentiers des Douaniers' (Customs officer patrol paths) are particularly inviting and the view of the Saint-Brieuc Bay is magnificent. A large number of sports are catered for, look at the list of activities available or contact us.
