Douarnenez, Finistere, Brittany
Overlooking the beach the house is of an attractive neo- Breton style which has been renovated and nicely refurbished by an architect designer. Lovely bathrooms and kitchen and the house is well equipped, It is perfectly situated for family holidays, being at the end of a private road, with views of the beach which is an 8 minute walk away. The town of Douarnenez is a five minute drive away, with a good variety of restaurants and shops, and a large intermarche is a few minutes drive away.
The house is perfect for 2 families or groups holidaying together and with two sitting rooms enabling children and adults to have their own space . There is no lawned play area but there are 2 terraces and sea facing balcony for al fresco dining, fully equipped with furniture.
We regret it is not suitable for wheelchair users, the infirm or very young...

Enjoyed our stay here. All very clean and beautifully presented. Lovely and quiet, at the end of a leafy lane. 10 minutes walk to great beach. Would have liked a garden. Room in basement not really suitable as a bedroom.More
