We had a truly fantastic Holiday. The cottage was a home from home, it had everything we needed and more. The local town/harbour was beautiful. The local beaches were stunning and great for surfing and chilling.
We wish we could have stayed for another week, the house was spacious and lots of outside room for the children which was enclosed and safe.
Huge Thank you to the owner Maggie who was so friendly and helpful, we would definitely stay here again and recommend it to family and friends.

“Charming family gite and wonderful owners”

We loved everything about the gite, and would highly recommend it. It's charming, spacious, clean, comfortable, well-equipped with a fantastic garden and in a beautiful setting. Its only a few minutes away from some lovely beaches, the closest of which is within walking distance (good for rock-pooling). We have two young children and we were pleasantly surprised by the things available to guests, including beach equipment, outdoor and indoor toys, large DVD collection etc which we hadn't appreciated would be there. The chalet owners are wonderful people and made us feel very at home. Maggie had very kindly put a few things in the fridge for when we arrived, which was a very nice touch. We had a truly fabulous stay and found it a very handy spot for accessibility to nearby towns and places of interest. On a very minor point, the only downside was that we struggled with Internet access.

“An amazing holiday home - perfect for families”

We stayed for two weeks in August and had fantastic time at this great house. The size of the gardens are quite breath-taking and with the biggest part being a fully walled garden it is very safe for children. We were able to play lots of cricket football and frisbee there during the day and BBQ in the evening. There is a great beach very close by with great sand and nice waves for teaching the kids bodyboarding. Food shopping is only 5 minutes by car and the nearby town of Audierne is a lovely place to browse around the shops. The other nearby Breton towns are also beautiful to visit. Finally, the hosts Wayne and Maggie are located next door and as others have said are completely non-intrusive but ever so helpful if you do need help, directions or ideas for places to visit. They are lovely people and Maison de la Mer, which they beautifully restored themselves, is a stunning French farmhouse property.

Gorgeous house and huge garden. Perfect for action packed family holiday. Plenty of space and big rooms. Very well catered for children. Walking distance to beach and many other beaches and bays by car. Coastal walking and many Breton towns to visit. Not far from shops ( by car). Maggie and Wayne perfect owners, who are right next door and ever helpful.

If you are looking for a quiet,rural, beautiful, Brittany holiday home then look no further. This place is perfect for families and young children as the garden is enclosed (and huge), there is everything you could want or need. Maggie and Wayne are the perfect hosts, they live next door but are completley non intrusive and Maison de la Mer feels like your own.
The surrounding towns and villages are picturesque and its less than 1 km to the nearest beach. I wanted a place where I could relax and really enjoy the ambience of Bretagne. Maison de la Mer delivered on all counts. Thanks so much Maggie & Wayne!
