“Fantastic House, Great Location”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We booked La Chataignier for a week in October as a group of ten to see a friend off in this years Mini Transat from Douarnenez.
Organising the stay was very straight forward, helped by the owner, Vicky W, being very flexible with regard to travel arrangements and providing plenty of advice on how to travel out, and the local facilities ahead of time. Handover was easy and managed well through Karine, the local house keeper
The house occupies an amazing location, 5 mins from town but in an amazingly isolated spot. Sitting on the balcony taking in the views to the coast was a pleasure.
The accommodation is first class, the well appointed kitchen was more than up to the demands of ten people. There is more than enough 'living area' to go along with that, and luxurious bathrooms and super comfy beds as well.
We all had a fantastic time, and couldn't recommend the house strongly enough

Thank you for your lovely feedback, I also pleased it all went well for your party and the brave sailor ! It is certainly a beautiful sailing area and very exciting to see boats go off on the various challenges and races when Douarnenez and Treboul have a wonderful party atmosphere. Please do come again.

“Beautiful house in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our extended family group 2 over 60's ,4 30 something's and 2 kids aged 7 and 8 had a great holiday in this lovely house. The house was very well equipped. The kitchen was fully fitted with everything we needed to cook and prepare all the delicious ingredients we found in the nearby markets.
The downstairs basement rumpus room was a great feature as it was the perfect place for the children to play noisy games and watch TV and DVD's without disturbing anyone who wanted peace and quiet.
The upstairs terrace and balcony gave beautiful views of the coast, and we all spent a lot of time there.
Everything was in place for our stay when we arrived and handover was very smooth. Comfortable beds and first class bathrooms added to the home form home feel.
Douarnenez is a colourful and interesting town with plenty of cafes and restaurants and daily fish markets. There is also plenty to do and places to explore in the area without having to travel for more than 30 minutes. The beach closest to the house was safe, sandy, and great for all the family.
We were unanimous in agreeing that we would definitely return if we had the chance,

“Fabulous house in a great seaside location, perfect for large family stay”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Le Chataignier is a lovely presented house in a picturesque setting. Good sized rooms and bedrooms. Very well equipped kitchen which opens onto a nice terrace for outside eating. Very clean and well maintained.
The house is located about a 4 mile run into town. Plenty of local restaurants and lots of sightseeing to do within a 30 minute drive.
