Townhouse in Erquy, Nr. Dinan, Brittany
About the area
Erquy has ten sandy beaches. Maison Theo is within 5-10 mins walking distance of the two main beaches, the town centre beach and Caroual beach. Both offer kids clubs in peak season and have toilet facilities. All other beaches are a 5 to 10 min drive from the house.
Golf courses within a 15 minute drive in Sable d'or and Pleneuf Val Andre.
How to get there
St Malo is the closest port, being approximately 50 minutes drive away. Roscoff, Caen and Cherbourg are alternatives although further away. Dinard airport, which is a 40 minute drive away, is served by Ryanair which offers cheap flights from the UK. The nearest train stations are Lamballe (20km), St Brieuc (35km), St Malo (45km). TGVs from Paris are quite frequent to Lamballe or St Brieuc. Local taxi service available.
As well as the attractions in Erquy, you could visit nearby Chateau Bienassis, Cap Frehel (10km away), the 600 year old Fort Lalatte (14 kms), as well as medieval Dinan and St Malo, both about 50 minutes drive away. Mont St Michel is also a day trip away. There are also numerous seaside resorts, beaches, and markets within an easy drive of Erquy.
Erquy is a beautiful working fishing port with a main central beach surrounding a harbour, where you can watch the catch being unloaded and even buy some of it on the quayside for your dinner later. The town centre contains several local shops, including traditional fishmongers and bakeries, and a small supermarket - no high street chain stores, just charm and individuality. You can also stroll down to Erquy's bustling market, where you could enjoy a freshly made crepe or two. There is also a large supermarket on the edge of town for anything else you might need. Maison Theo is just a stroll from Erquy’s array of restaurants, including several creperies and restaurants specialising in the local delicacy of scallops. Erquy’s modern water sports centre offers excellent facilities, including a diving school and sailing school, windsurfing and sea canoeing. Become a sailor for the day on board the Sainte-Jeanne traditional sailing ship or explore the 15km of coastal path. There is a children’s playground and merry-go-round on the front, together with a programme of entertainment during the summer season. This includes a local food and craft market, a weekly children's festival, and a weekly display of Celtic culture.

Maison Theo was clean and in good order- it was great to be met and shown around the property. The view from the house was delightful as were the beaches within walking distance, boulangerie and delicious seafood restaurants. A lovely place to relax!

We had a wonderfully relaxing week at the house even with a 16 month old! The location of the house, just a 5 minute walk down the hill to the town, was great for popping out for fresh pastries for breakfast and just along the prom was a great play park by the beach for some after tea exercise for our daughter. There's a lovely selection of restaurants around the harbour, that welcomed children and we enjoyed not having to use the car. The house is very well equipped, although there is no bath, there is a babybath to use and everything we needed. Sitting watching the boats in the harbour with a glass of wine from the lounge was fab!

"A lovely place to stay!"
We had a great time in Erquy in spite of the 'iffy' weather, which seemed to be the same throughout western Europe! It certainly helped to be staying in such a well equipped and comfortable home!!! Alain, the property manager, was extremely helpful showing us all around the house, plus suggesting interesting things to see and do. including some fantastic coastal path walks. We ate out every evening except two and found the restaurants at the port very friendly and pretty good value. The views form the windows are certainly 'to die for', absolutely brilliant. And Brittany itself is so picturesque. We certainly made the right choice by staying at Maison Theo and would definitely recommend it.

Why this location?
We fell in love with Erquy during several very successful family holidays to the resort, where the children had a fantastic time exploring rock pools and building sandcastles on one of the many beaches. We also loved looking around the market or trying out one of the many restaurants along the port. However, we never managed to find a gite to stay in that was near enough to the town centre and beaches (so we didn't have to drive everywhere) or which offered a high level of comfort - so we decided to buy our own place!
What are the unique benefits of the property?
One of the things I love about Maison Theo is that it is furnished to a very high standard so it's a lovely place to hang out and just relax. You can feel really at home here. The back garden is a total suntrap, and there is nothing better than catching the evening sun on the balcony with a glass of wine looking out over the port. However, it's top plus point has got to be its location. You can get up in the morning and have a short (3-4 minute) walk to one of several bakeries to pick up your fresh croissants for breakfast. You can walk back to the town centre later to pick up some fresh fish from one of the fishmongers or stop off at the brasserie or creperie for a spot of lunch or drink. You can walk to two beaches. And you can walk to a variety of great restaurants.
