About The Owner

I am a retired health professional. My husband and I bought the house about 30 years ago and we have used it for some wonderful family holidays. The house is large enough that we were able to take grandparents or friends with us. Older children can come and go to the beach or the village and practice their French in the village bakery or shop. We look forward to going their with our own grandchildren when they come along. In the meantime, my husband and I use for relaxing, away-from-it-all breaks and particularly enjoy cycling to Mogueric or Carantec for a well deserved lunch.

The Owner purchased this house in 1990

Why The Owner chose Santec

This is a great location to bring a young family with an old fashioned, village beach full of rock pools and sea-life. The beach is a about 300 yards from the house so you can come and go easily between the beach and the house. The locals use the beach for collecting shellfish for supper and for general pottering about in their small fishing boats. There are no jet skis or loud stereos to date.

About a mile up the coast, the beach at Dossen is popular with wind surfers, kite surfers and surfers.

What makes this house unique

Close to the ferry terminal, close to the local beach but in a traditional Breton village with excellent facilities (bakery, mini-supermarket, tabac, pharmacy, beauty parlour, library) where you will hear only French spoken. It is located in a quiet village with easy walking access to local shops and a local beach.

Un très beau séjour !!!

  • 5 of 5

Une maison idéale pour des vacances : la maison est à 2 pas de la mer, très bien équipée (la mieux équipée que nous ayons jamais louée), très bien chauffée (nous l'avons louée l'hiver et par tempête) et fonctionnelle.

L'environnement est exceptionnel et nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances grâce à cette location.

Nous recommandons sans hésiter !

Wunderbares Haus in Meernähe!

  • 5 of 5

Sehr gemütliches Ferienhaus mit Kamin und schönem Dielenboden, was in der Bretagne sehr selten ist. Besonders für Familien mit kleinen Kindern gut eingerichtet, es gibt sogar Treppengitter! Küche und vor allem das Bad modern und komfortabel. Bis zum Meer sind es nur etwa 300 Meter. Schöner Küstenabschnitt mit kleinen Inselchen, die man bei Ebbe erreichen kann. Der Kontakt mit der Vermieterin (Engländerin) war super , wir bekamen sogar Geld zurück, weil wir einen Tag früher abreisen mussten, als vorher geplant.

Owner's Response: Mr Hess was a great house guest. I am so glad he enjoyed the house and its location. His arrival and departure all went smoothly and he liaised with our caretaker in good time ensuring all went well. He and his companions left the house in good order. I hope they choose to stay with us again.

The village has an excellent small supermarket with a good butcher's department. There is also a good bakery for fresh bread open daily and a pharmacy. Walks along the coastal path are very pleasant and there are bars/restaurants about a mile in either direction.

For the gourmets reading this, there are 4 Michelin starred restaurants locally. Our favourite is Le Pomme d'Api in St Pol de Leon where you can get a 3 course lunch for about 25 euros if you don't want to splash out on an evening meal.
