About the Owner
I grew up in Saltaire,West Yorkshire in the 1960's.
Left for Art school and London in the eighties.
Remained there until coming to France full time with my partner Sue in 2006.
I originally bought a house in this area in 1990 and visited frequently until we moved here.

A perferct home base to discover Northern Brittany
La maison de beauport was a perfect home base for us to discover the beauty of Northern Brittany and provided enough rooms for two families (4 adults and 6 youngster between 14 and 20). The charming house is beautifully decorated, the kitchen well equipped and everybody found his favourite place to relax... David is an easy going and straight forward landlord. We'd love to come back one day!
Beautiful house, great location
Lovely house, full of light and very tastefully decorated. The house was spotless. It was pleasure to sit by the lake and watch the heron each morning and count the egrets in the tree. David and Sue were the perfect hosts, warm and welcoming and responsive to any requests. It is perfectly located, just a short walk to the Abbaye de Beauport and the sea, a short drive to the center of Paimpol.
Greeted by the wonderful proprietors, easy and relaxed brief overview and then left to our own devices for the week. Words fail me in an attempt to describe the property and do it the justice it deserves in all aspects, location, scenery, architecture, aesthetics and atmosphere. All in all just about the best holiday retreat our large family has enjoyed in 25 years of travel. Cannot recommend this enough. Thank you David.
Une adresse à retenir !
Demeure plein de charme, agencée avec goût, spacieuse pour nos 3 familles, propre, équipement de qualité. Merci encore David pour tes conseils et l'atmosphère paisible qui règne dans cette maison qui ont rendu notre séjour très agréable et. On reviendra. Gaëlle
We have stayed in a few houses in the Bretagne, but this is definitely the best ever. It feels so comfy, warm and inviting. This house feels more like a home than anything else. Also it's perfectly situated for the most beautiful walks by just crossing the road. Surrounded by nature but not too far away from the possibility for a nice meal out or short trips to other beautiful places. One of us would actually rather stay here than going back home... We will miss the peaceful atmosphere that we enjoyed during our stay.
We definitely recommend it.
Wonderful house in beautiful surroundings
We really love this house; it is very charming and wonderfully decorated (beautiful mirrors!). The little museum is very nice, our daughter went there every day, she couldn't get enough of it. The surroundings are lovely; the lake and the woods are so close. And when you cross the street, you're at a beautiful coast. Lots of possibilities for walkers aswell as for beach lovers. We really had a wonderful time here.
From the Owner
“I fell in love with this place the first time I laid eyes on it in 1990. There was no question...when it came up for sale I had to buy it!”
Activity and Interests
The house is situated on the edge of Paimpol,a well known historical fishing town.Our neighbour is the Abbaye de Beauport,established in 1202 and considered to be the best example of a maritime Abbey in France and highly recommend as a place to go.
To the west of Paimpol starts the 'Pink Granite coast' famous for its stunning rock formations and islets. Ten minutes to the north of Paimpol is L'Arc Ouest,the embarkation point for a 10 minute ferry ride to the car free 'Isle de Brehat,peaceful and fleurie,lots of quiet little beaches, very well worth a visit.
In close proximity to the house,as well as numerous woodland walks you can find several very safe beaches,and a few kilometres away,bigger ,busier beaches such as Brehec and Plage de Bonaparte.
Lots of activities such as Golf,Tennis,Sailing are all very close.
A Steam Train (April -Sept) runs from Paimpol along the banks of the River Trieux to Pontriuex,a delightful small sheltered town.
Near Pontrieux is Chateau Roch Jagu,perched high on the banks of the river Trieux.A formidable chateau and it has amazing gardens.
Perros Guirrec,Tregastel.Ploumanach and Plougrescant,all fabulous destinations on the Cote Granit Rose within a 45 min drive of the house.
