Set in an historic Breton hamlet boasting its own listed chapel and village bread oven, this pair of lovingly restored stone fishermen’s cottages nestle in a sheltered setting

Set in an historic Breton hamlet boasting its own listed chapel and village bread oven, this pair of lovingly restored stone fishermen’s cottages nestle in a sheltered setting. The two cottages are offered as a single property, providing adjacent yet separate holiday accommodation for two families. Looking out onto a pretty courtyard to the rear of the owner’s house, the interior features a fresh nautical theme with beamed ceilings throughout. An 800 metre stroll along a country path takes you to La Greve Blanche beach, one of many in the area with pale sands and clear waters providing an ideal opportunity for water sports. The beach at La Torche, with its dune-backed expanse of sand is excellent for surf-lovers. For a quieter day out, explore the coastal path which takes you past striking lighthouses and superb views at every turn. The famous fishing port of Le Guilvinec is close by; visit towards late afternoon to see the trawlers returning with their catch and buy local langoustines for supper.

Approximate distance to Brest airport is 65 km.

    lovely cottage and very nice helpful owners. Pool was fabulous, nice and warm and could have open or covered. Pretty garden and good outside eating area. Only down side for us was the narrow spiral staircase . Quite tricky to manoeuvre.

    We enjoyed our stay at An Ilis very much. We had a very warm welcome from the owners and they were very helpful particularly with our ineptitude with the washing machine.The swimming pool was used every day and it was pleasant to sit in the arm chairs after a swim in the enclosure or to sit in the garden. The cottage is delightful with its nautical theme and ideally situated in a very quiet cul de sac near a historic bread oven and chapel within a short walk of the beach. Le Guilvinic is a bustling busy fishing port with good shops and restaurants just a short distance away. There is a really good shop for bread and patisseries and a small but very adequate supermarket opposite. Pont l’Abbe is within a few miles with super restaurants and shops. All in all we took full advantage of all the varied amenities within a short distance and our first experience of a holiday in Finistere was a good one with a lovely cottage covered pool and kind and delightful owners.

    An excellent base for a beach and pool holiday. We were very happy here. Perhaps a little more kitchen equipment would be helpful, but the two house format is ideal for a multi generational group. Grandparents will be very happy in the separate annex.

    Beautiful location, blissfully quiet, just what the doctor ordered! Will need a car to travel about! The couple who owned the cottage were very friendly and the language barrier was easily overcome!! We found the directions to the cottage using our sat nav very easy! We 100% experienced a different culture! We had the swimming pool to ourselves for the whole week we were there!!! It Was a very relaxed atmosphere. If you want a few home comforts tho, ie English radio, TV, food, you’ll need to bring them with you! However We will definitely be returning!
