Something for everyone

  • 5 out of 5
Having stayed in this area of Brittany over many years, we found this property to be especially suitable for our needs.

Maison Theo is a newly built house overlooking Erquy harbour. It has a balcony outside the living room to absorb the view while enjoying glass of wine. There is also a small garden behind the kitchen which is a sun trap.

Although situated in a quiet side road, the property is less than a ten minute walk into town, and another few minutes to the main beach.

Suitable for families with young children; plenty of games, DVDs and books to keep them quiet if the weather turns wet. Also well-equipped with stair gates, cot etc. The washing machine and tumble drier are especially helpful.

Very comfortable kitchen and living area.

A good range of restaurants along the harbour, many specialising in seafood and crepes.

Many beaches to choose from in the area. If you drive along the coast there are some wonderful views. Especially worth visiting Cap Frehel and Fort La Latte. Just outside Erquy there is Chateau Bien Assis which is open during the summer months.

A little further afield Dinan is worth a day's visit, likewise St Malo.

Any questions were readily answered by the manager.

Would certainly recommend to family and friends.

Maison Theo

  • 4 out of 5
Do you require a very clean, well equipped, modern, comfortable holiday home with a wonderful view over the town and harbour with easy access to provision shops and neighbouring fishing villages and beaches?. Then Maison Theo is the place for you.
Walking is a must, but hills maybe a problem for some

Maison Theo

  • 4 out of 5
It is a modern house in a quiet street about ten minutes walk from the shopping centre of Erquy and its beaches. It is comfortable, clean, fresh, well maintained and well equipped with a fine view of the harbour. We had a most enjoyable holiday there. Sitting having breakfast outside in the sunshine after an early morning swim was a particularly happy experience.
We would warmly recommend Maison Theo to family and friends.

Owner's Response: Hi John

I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay so much. Yes, there are some great coastal walks around Erquy, and there's nothing better than watching the boats return to harbour from the house's balcony.

Best wishes and hope to have you as a guest again soon

Lovely house in great location

  • 4 out of 5
Maison Theo is in a perfect location, just five minutes from a fantastic beach and a two minute walk from the centre of Erquy. The accommodation is clean and has very good facilities. The owner and local agent were very helpful and provided an excellent service. We wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Location

From the Owner

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!

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

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.

Travel:

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.

Distances:

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.

Further Details:

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.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
