Brittany small beachfront cottage - This cheerful property sits right on the lovely, classic Atlantic beach of Le Pouldu, within walking distance of a local restaurant and within easy reach of many renowned Brittany coastal towns and inland villages. You can also walk to a local shop which is open during the season. Furnished with traditional French country antiques, this cottage is an ideal pied-a-terre within a small cluster of beach houses set along a sandy beachfront, one of three at Le Pouldu.
All accommodation is on the ground floor: the upper level is unoccupied. This area is known as the 'Cote Cornouaille', the French Cornwall. Le Pouldu is a lovely seaside village which springs to life in the summer months. Clohars-Carnoet is only 5 minutes' drive away for a good selection of amenities throughout the year, and Quimperle is also within easy reach. There are fabulous walks along the beach and coastal paths directly from the cottage and, once you have built up an appetite, the local area offers a wealth of gastronomic delights, from fresh seafood to classic Breton crepes.
Further afield there are numerous places to visit such as the walled port town of Concarneau and the medieval town of Vannes. This beach cottage in Brittany is always popular with repeat clients, so do book early to avoid disappointment.
“This is a very popular part of Brittany, well known for its coastal scenery, sandy beaches, fishing villages and opportunities for hiking, horse riding, biking and more.Le Pouldu which is nearby has a museum, abbey and is great for children: coves, sandy stretches, rock pools and some fine places to stop for moules and frites.”

This was our second visit
This was our second visit to Cottage on the Beach and it again delivered a wonderful, relaxing family holiday. The villa is very well equipped, and the kayak, wetsuits and body boards were very well used. It is a magnificent beach, with a good range of activities, but we also explored more widely this time, finding some lovely harbours along the coast and in particular enjoying the cairn at Gavrinis. The owners were extremely welcoming and friendly. The villa is hard to beat in terms of location, being just a few steps down the garden and directly onto the beach, but is at the same time secluded and private. Another lovely stay.
The location was amazing
The location was amazing, leading directly onto a wonderful beach. The villa was well equipped and spacious, and the addition of the BBQ, kayak, wetsuits and life jackets were much appreciated. The villa rooms were a little dark and the fittings were dated but functional and the beds were very comfortable. Nevertheless, it is a wonderful setting for a perfect beach holiday.
Excellent villa and lovely location
Lovely location family beach at the bottom of the garden. Coastal footpath runs past, two good restaurants in walking distance. House well equipped and the owners are very nice.
The photos and description don't do it justice
We stayed at this villa with our two daughters, aged 11 and 14 and we all loved the holiday. The beach is great with the right combination of sand, rock-climbing and waves for body-boarding. It is busy in the afternoons in August, but we could go back to our garden whenever we liked. It was so great not having to lug anything down to the beach! The surf school use part of the beach and they are very friendly, offering instruction in English. You can book for just one lesson or even hire the boards for less. The house has a lovely sunny patio and garden and large bedrooms. The living accommodation is a bit small for four, but it was fine as we had good weather. There isn't any sort of shop that you can walk to, but there are a couple of local supermarkets a short drive away, which are open long hours. If you like Art or history, don't miss Gauguin's old home (a restored inn) in Le Pouldu or the gallery in Pont-Aven (half an hour's drive). Concarneau with it's old walled city makes a good day out. We would definitely consider booking this villa again sometime.
We loved sitting on the terrace watching the waves
Lovely house and owners. Great location. We loved sitting on the terrace watching the waves. Husband enjoyed using the owners' sea kayak. Kitchen well equipped but needed grater and colander.
