This pretty cottage is tucked away in a quiet country lane leading to a little creek, and the superb coastal footpath, that takes you around the whole of Brittany! The countryside around is pretty and there are lovely walks, with little coves and creeks to explore. We think it makes an excellent holiday home in a beautiful unspoilt area.
The house has a light and cheerful atmosphere and is comfortably furnished. You can't see the sea from the house (just little glimpses from upstairs) but it is a very pleasant 5-minute walk along the coastal path.
Ground floor: Spacious living and dining room with comfortable seating, TV with CNN English speaking channel, DVD, CD and an open fireplace. Kitchen with traditional 4-ring cooker, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer and electric coffee maker. Shower room and a separate WC.

About the local area
The house is situated 4k from Moelan-sur-Mer, a village about 10k southeast of Pont Aven and 10k from Quimperlé. The countryside around is pretty and there are lovely walks along the coastal path with little coves and creeks to explore. The nearest creek is Poulguen, about 200m away. You could swim there but it has pebbles not sand, but there are beautiful sandy beaches at Kerfany, 7k, and Trenez, 5k. The beach at Kerfany has a fantastic restaurant (mostly seafood) overlooking the sea. Le Pouldu, a pretty little resort with 3 sandy beaches is about 10k. There are excellent facilities at Quimperlé which is a picturesque old town. It has a swimming pool, tennis courts, a couple of good restaurants and picturesque half-timbered houses in attractive old streets. Pont Aven, about 10k, is famous for its Gauguin connections and has lots of art galleries. It is in a lovely setting with the river flowing through the centre of the town. This is a wonderful area, with something for everyone.
