This beautiful island is characterized by its beautiful coastline, with numerous cliffs and coves, and (at low tide) over one hundred beaches. On the west coast steep cliffs and rugged surf beaches on the east coast many sheltered bays and beaches surrounded by turquoise seas. Monet was also inspired by and made many paintings of the Belle-iloise coasts. A four-day grand randonner enter on foot along the "Route Cotier" around the island. Belle Ile has an exceptionally mild climate with plenty of sunshine but always combined with a delicious crispy sea breeze. At night it cools down so comfortable no air conditioning and closed windows needed to sleep. You have to do however struggle to reach Belle Ile. The car must be booked far in advance for the ferry. In the distant periphery countries no budget flights. However, there is a small airstrip. And that's a good thing. Thus preserving the island its tranquility and charm. No mass tourism and day trippers. It is an island and the French and especially Parisians. You see very few foreign tourists. It is an island for the connoisseurs. But those who have bothered, always come back. This makes it also a cultural island in the summer many concerts and even operas, but also many galleries and exhibitions. The local pubs often french live music. The island "lacks" a nightclub. In the many lunch and dinner eatery is a culinary feast. At bakeries can be in the early morning pick up all your baguetjes. Fresh fruits and vegetables as well as fresh fish and meats you in Le Palais cobble together on the daily market. Also on the island is also the major French super- and hyper-marchés. Also bicycle, scooter and car rental. Above all, Le palais and lively Sauzon have tidal ports Breton fishing boats and sailing ships. Golf you play not only with a view of the Bay of Biscay, but one of the holes you literally turn over the Bay of Biscay; So take you a lot of balls.

Sfeervol, zeer compleet huis en prachtige locatie

  • 5 of 5

Gezellig huis, goed ingericht en verzorgd, vrijstaand met rondom tuin en voor- en achterkant zeezicht, direct bij wandelroute langs zee, rustige baaitjes vlakbij huis. 1,5 km naar le Palais, bakker, haven, restaurantjes en winkels. Schitterende golfbaan op eiland, mooie natuur, geen massa-toerisme. September was mooie tijd om te gaan, mild zeeklimaat. Wij komen hier graag terug!

Magnifiek verblijf!

  • 5 of 5

Wij waren al verliefd op Belle Ile; het verblijf in dit schitterende huis heeft dat alleen nog maar versterkt! Uitzicht vanuit de voor - en achtertuin op de Atlantische Oceaan.

Graag komen wij nog een keer terug!

Ein wahres Traumhaus

  • 5 of 5

Vom ersten Moment an haben wir uns in diesem Haus rundum wohl gefühlt: Die ruhige Lage nahe der kleinen Strandbucht, die Blicke aufs Meer und die liebevoll gestaltete Einrichtung haben sowohl bei uns Eltern also auch bei den Kindern (14 und 11 Jahre alt) keine Wünsche offen gelassen. Wir haben das Haus und die gesamte Insel in unser Herz geschlossen und werden gerne wiederkommen.

Heerlijk huis

  • 4 of 5

Het huis voelde als van jezelf. Goed ingericht, schoon. Heerlijke tuin met in de verte zicht op zee. Op loopafstand van Le Palais. De wandelpaden beginnen bij het huis, wij hebben genoten van het eiland.

The beautiful island of Belle Ile is characterized by its beautiful coastline, with numerous cliffs and coves, and (at low tide) over one hundred beaches. Taillefer is a small hamlet on a headland about 2 km north of Le Palais. On the east side of Taillefer look out over the bay of Quibero and on the west side of the Bay of Biscay. The east side of Taillefer is characterized by a number of secluded bays with beaches on a calm sea, while the west coast consists of exposed steep cliffs where the ocean pounds on piece. Our house provides both sides with beautiful sea view over sundowners Biscay. The nearest beach at Port St Julien home on a minutes walk from the house. Taillefer is located on beautiful Grand Randonnee (trail) running around the island. The house is on a dead end road. At the sound of the surf and a single seagull after deafening silence prevails. Except in the light of the lighthouse Les Poulains (Fl 5sec) there at night, no visual pollution.
