Superb seaside family house in Pleneuf Val Andre.



Updated: 10-Oct-2016
House with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 5 WC, sleeps 10, close to the beach

A spacious 5 bedroom family house (sleeps 10) located between the small Breton fishing port of Dahouet and the adjacent huge sandy bay of Pleneuf Val Andre. The beach of Val Andre is 450 yards from the front door with its unspoiled promenade and panoramic views of the bay of St Brieuc. All water sport activities are catered for by the local centre, and if you prefer to stay on dry land there are miles and miles of rugged coastline to explore on the well maintained and indicated footpaths. Val Andre has a good variety of shops, restaurants and boutiques, as well as its renowned golf course and casino. In the other direction at the same distance is the fishing port of Dahouet with its small marina and local fishing fleet. There are cafes and restaurants to discover but not so many as to be overwhelming, the welcome is typically Breton and we are sure you will appreciate the local

seafood dishes. The house offers a private south facing timber terraced courtyard.

Golf: The closest golf course to the house is Pléneuf Val André only a mile away. Val André:

One of the top links courses in France, the views over the coast and cliffs are stunning and the backdrop of rolling green countryside is spectacular - 18 holes, par 72, 5836 metres.

Sable D'Or Les Pins: Lying close to the Cap Fréhel headland and the superb beaches of Vieux-Bourg and Les Sables d’Or - 18 Holes, Par: 70, Length: 5510 Yards.

Other golf courses in St Malo, Dinard, St Cast, Les Ormes.

Water sports and beaches: The Breton sailing centres offer a wide range of water activities for all ages. It is worth checking their range of boats as well as their courses which they run for kids and adults.

The closest sailing centre is on Val André beach. You can rent a variety of sailing boats, windsurfers, sea kayaks, canoes. The centre also organises excellent sailing courses for children and adults as well as sand yachting courses.

Just at the end of the road!

Markets: This is very much part of French life and a delight to view and choose from vegetables, delicatessen as well as seafood stalls. Not to mention the last gadget for which a vendor will invariably find 1000 uses. Most markets will end late morning.

Monday: Saint Quay Portrieux; Tuesday: Pléneuf; Wednesday: Matignon, Plouha and St Brieuc; Thursday: Binic, Dinan and Lamballe; Friday: Wal André and Saint Cast le Guildo; Saturday: Erquy and Saint Brieuc; Sunday: Saint Brieuc

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the perfect holiday home in France. Very comfortable and practical with the well appointed open plan kitchen and living room. We appreciated having 3 bathrooms and 5 toilets and particularly enjoyed the provencale kitchen outdoors.

The close proximity to the pretty harbour with several very good restaurants and the easy walk to busy Val Andre and its child friendly beach ensures it meets the requirements of every member of the family.

The easy stroll down to the local boulangerie to get croissants and baguettes every morning was a highlight of our holiday.

We've already recommended this propperty to other members of our family and friends.

Great place for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was near enough to the beach for the family to walk there comfortably;restaurants also easily strollable.

Boulangerie was brilliant and handy, as was the harbour.

We enjoyed the barbecue area too.

A book outlining local villages and places to visit would have been appreciated. Also we only found the games on the second last day! Dave and Isabelle were very helpful as regards the booking arrangements.

We would hope to come back. Thank you.

Fabulous family house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Pleneuf - if only it could have been longer. The lovely house is perfect for a large group with lots of space including a neat outside area for barbecues etc and a real suntrap. It was spotless when we arrived and appears very fresh and well cared for inside and out.

The amazing sandy beach (perfect for children of all ages) is a 5-7 minute walk with the town alongside. We were very fortunate to have hot sunny weather so we didn't venture outside the area but just enjoyed walking, running, swimming in the sea. We took our own bicycles which were useful to get the morning croissants - you can hire from nearby.

There is a good choice of restaurants in the town for all budgets - we liked Le Plein des Sens - but we mainly ate at home. We stocked up in the main supermarket a short drive away but otherwise picked up food daily at the local supermarket. Our older children had a fun night out at Space nightclub which is within walking distance. We stayed during the Olympics so were able to enjoy all the highlights on the English TV channel.

We would very much recommend this house and this seaside town to others - and plan to go back in the future.

Great house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August 2016. The house is very comfortable with great facilities. The outside dining area and grill were particularly useful. There is an excellent beach just a 10 minute walk away with the marina at Dahouet just a short walk in the other direction. There are also plenty of other activities all within short driving distances. Would definitely recommend as an excellent holiday location.

Good quality house and helpful friendly hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this attractively furnished and comfortable house. We were 7 adults and 2 children and the bedrooms worked well for us. The beds are so comfortable and we really enjoyed eating outside on an evening. The children enjoyed the tv and well stocked video selection and we all found the number of bathrooms perfect for our needs with plenty of hot water for showers and baths. The property was certainly well-maintained and clean and the owners were very helpful whenever we needed. We enjoyed so much walking the back route to the sea and swimming followed by a coffee in town. We ate in most nights but liked having 'moules frites' down by the harbour and pizzas in the pizzeria in town on one of the nights. Theres a large E.Leclerc supermarket one can drive to which is about 5 mins away but we preferred walking to the smaller 8 À Huit supermarket in town (although they don't stock anything gluten-free there). Theres a coffee machine in the kitchen but a cafetiere would have been appreciated too. Thanks so much for being so accommodating and for letting us stay in your lovely house. We had such an enjoyable and sunny week - perfect if you don't want to drive much as everything is within walking distance from the house.

Great house for large groups

  • 4 of 5

Our party of eleven (8 adults, 2 children and one infant) stayed at the house at the end of July 2016.

The house is spacious, especially the bedrooms and tastefully decorated. We found it really useful having so many bathrooms with so many people. The covered outside eating area was also a great feature that everyone loved, plus the decked area outside is a real sun-trap! There were plenty of large pots and bowls in the kitchen which is essential for a large group and not something I've always found in other holiday homes.

The town and area itself was also good for the children - we went to the boat pond at Dahouet which they enjoyed and the huge beach is about 10 mins walk at a slow (kids) pace. We went to the market (Tues mornings) which we definitely recommend. Also good was Fort La Latte - a fantastic castle on the coast about 30 mins away.

We mainly ate at the house but can recommend La Voile in Dahouet - lovely position by the harbour and good cocktails. And we had takeaway pizza from La Villa which was very tasty.

Overall a very pleasant holiday!

Owner's Response: While renovating the property, we always had in mind we would one day live in it, so we decorated it and refurbished it to make it a warm and very well equipped family house. We're thrilled you had a great time and you enjoyed this superb part of the Brittany coast. All the best to you and your family. Isabelle and Dave

Convenient, comfy base for exploring Cote D'armour

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our holiday in Isabelle and Dave's house and they couldn't have been more welcoming. The house was very comfortable (especially comfy beds!) and is spacious enough for two families. Located on a road (albeit quite busy) leading directly (about 5-10 min walk) to the the seafront at Val Andre, it is handy for walking to the beach and to restaurants (La Villa (italian/pizza) was perfect with great food and well set up for young children). At the back, the house is accessed from a quiet lane leading to the Port and the local bakery (excellent!). We had a couple of days of sunshine and besides visiting the beaches within walking distance from the house, we had fun outings to Sable D'Or (and fun riding around on the Rosalie bikes) and Erquy. On the wet days, the children loved our visits to the aquarium in St Malo (predictably busy but very good), a fantastic 'Asian zoo' (ZooParc de Tregomeur) , and the Terrarium de Kerdanet in Plouagat (all within an hour's drive from the house). I would recommend the house for families with (if you put stair gates up where appropriate) or without young children.

Pléneuf-Val-André has three faces. It is a tourist resort with magnificent beaches. It also has a traditional little fishing harbour called Dahouët. And finally it has a very lively town centre. This diversity resembles that of the multiple aspects of Brittany.

The surrounding areas contain many sites of historical interest including medieval towns (Dinan, Moncontour) manor houses, châteaux (lChateau de Bien Assis, La Roche Jagu), Forts (Fort La Latte) and churches. There are town markets to wander around, ample choice of restaurants and cafes and a fantastic number of beaches to choose from, boat trips are also a great way to spend the day. Val Andre also has a renowned golf course. If you like walking the 'Sentiers des Douaniers' (Customs officer patrol paths) are particularly inviting and the view of the Saint-Brieuc Bay is magnificent. A large number of sports are catered for, look at the list of activities available or contact us.
