It enjoys a large enclosed garden with sloping lawns, shady trees, tropical plants, a Potager aswell as a lawned seating area. Garden furniture is provided to enable you to enjoy occasional BBQ's or just an early evening drink enjoying the views over the town and out to the sea in the distance. A lovely sandy beach is approx. 10 - 15 mins walk away and a short walk further on is the larger town beach and popular paddle boarding, cannoing and sailing school. AUDIERNE Audierne is principally a fishing port, and sits on the estuary leading to the River Goyen where you will find a footpath/cycle track along the edge of this calm and beautiful river. It takes about 15-20 minutes cycling to arrive in Pont Croix, one of the regions tiny 'medieval cities'. Audierne also boasts a local maritime museum and a popular Aquarium. SHOPPING The little town centre manages to provide everything you would need on a day to day basis including chemists, Banks, daily indoor & weekly outdoor markets, Boulangeries, Patisseries & Boucherie. There are also 3 large supermarkets within 5 minutes drive. Audierne is also very well catered for if you wish to eat out with a selection of Good Restaurants ,Creperies, a Pizzaria and a few Waterside Bars and eateries. THE HOUSE The whole of the ground floor is a garage/workshop and houses the boiler and a washing machine.This is a useful area for storing wet suits, Golf clubs etc…Parking is on the gated drive. There are steps up to the front door from the garden and also from inside the garage. The house has quite recently been refurbished and a lot of care was taken to ensure it still retains the wonderful relaxed and charming 'french' feel to it. Modern facilities are now provided giving very comfortable living accommodation, kitchen & bathrooms inc. wi-fi availability. The house can accommodate up to six people very comfortably. ACCOMMODATION INCLUDES: First Floor - From the front door the large Hallway leads to Music/Reading/TV room, a large and airy Dining area with lovely views. Modern and fully equipped Kitchen including a dishwasher &microwave.One Double Bedroom and family bathroom. Second Floor - Has a King size Bedroom and Twin bedroom plus a spacious and bright Shower room. It is only a short walk down to the Harbour & Patisserie for the morning croissants. There is a very popular Market on Saturday mornings and a smaller one on Wednesdays. In the summer months there is also a night market on Wednesday evenings. AREA The mild climate here means Cap Sizun has much to offer any visitor who enjoys the outdoor life. We imagine it is like Cornwall was 50 years ago. Uncommercialised and still beautiful. It has many safe and sandy beaches, Celtic summer festivals and has a variety of watersports to choose from. It is also known for its wonderful seafood, and fresh fish is delivered to the local Poisonerie every day from the nearby ports. ********* There are also many other interesting places to visit nearby should you want to go further afield: *The medieval city of Quimper is only 40 minutes drive away with its distinctive Bretton character, Cathedral, Museum, smart shops and beautiful river frontage. *The dramatic Pointe du Raz is only about 15 minutes drive and is the equivalent of our Lands End but without the crowds. *The scenic old fishing port of Douarnenez is only 20 mins drive with maritime museum and many waterside restaurants. *Concarneau is about an hour away and aswell as a charming place to wander around. It also has, in the centre of the town, the lovely 'Ville Close' an old walled town which is accessed over a drawbridge *The artist town of Pont -Aven is also just over an hour away. *Guilvinec is a large fishing Port about 40 minutes drive where every afternoon from a viewing platform you can see the whole of the fishing fleet returning to port to unload their catch of the day. *Isle de Seine - there is a Ferry from the far end of Audierne which does day trips to this tiny Island about one hour away. *For the serious Golfers there is a 9 hole Golf course at Quimper (40 mins) 'L'orangerie de Lanniron' and a full size one at Benodet (50mins) 'Golf de L'Odet' ********* SUITABILITY This house is charming, comfortable and would probably suit one or two couples or a family with children maybe older than 8 (due to the steps and balcony). It is in an Ideal position for either touring this area of Brittany or for anyone that wants to just chill out and enjoy a holiday by the sea.More

About the neighbourhood
just a few minutes from the patisserie that sells your morning Croisants and Baguette. Easy strolling distance (5 mins) to all shops, restaurants, bars etc plus only 10 minutes from a small sheltered beach. Lovely 15-20 minute walk from main town beach. The view from the house is beautiful,
Getting around
A car is reccomended as limited public transport but there is a local bus to Douarnenez or Quimper. Lovely Cycling / walking area, especially along the river Goyen to Pont croix. Good cliff top walks. There is cycle hire in the town. Canoe hire available for use in the sea or the river.
