About the property

House in Le Yaudet, Nr. Lannion, Cote D'Armor, Brittany - Very Peaceful Location In A Quiet Village With A Lovely Quiet Secluded Garden In Which To Relax

Beautiful Breton style house 10 minutes drive from Lannion with it's excellent shops, bars and restaurants and of course the famous large Thursday street market which sprawls through the whole town. Fishing, riding, good walking, cycling, land yachting and sailing are all available in the local area. The headland at Le Yaudet is not only a place of magnificent natural beauty but also an important historical site, with roman celtic remains. In the garage of the house there are 4 bikes (Gents, Ladies and two children's) on which you can explore the countryside. This is a wonderful area and this is a great base from which to explore it. Or of course just sit in the South facing garden and enjoy the peace and quiet with a glass (bottle) or two of wine. There are two patio areas one outside the patio doors which enjoys the sun for the majority of the day and at the bottom of the garden there is a smaller area where one can enjoy the late evening sunshine. Both have garden furniture. There are 4 sun beds for use in the garden. A short stroll will take you down to the headland where the Leguer river meets the sea and this has to be on of our favourite views. There are many lovely little paths that lead you around here and down to the very quiet and private little beach. We now have a lovely new creperie/bar in the village run by a lovely young couple from Normandy. Another lovely walk is along the path and towards Locquemeau which gives great views. At the end there are a is a bar and restaurant - Great for Moules Frites! But if you get in the car and explore you will be rewarded with many fine safe and quiet beaches in our little corner of Brittany. I cannot guarantee you sunshine but I can guarantee peace and quiet here in our lovely village

Bookings are Saturday to Saturday in during the summer months but ask about other dates and we may be able to help. In other periods all periods of let are considered. Check in is from 1400 on day of arrival and departure should be by 1000 on day of departure. Towels and bedding can be provided on request.

About Gerry

My name is Gerry Shaw and I have owned Milin Awel in Le Yaudet since 2004. As a family we always took our holidays in France and often in Brittany. We loved the area and always dreamed of owning a house there. When the dream came true it was wonderful and now we have extended and improved the house it is even better.The area is so quiet and relaxing that one can forget all about the worries and trials of normal life back in England. Sure you will love the wonderful coastline and beautiful unspoiled beaches as much as we do. Have a great time.

Gerry purchased this house in 2004

Why Gerry chose Ploulec'h

When we first saw this house ( a beautiful hot summers afternoon) it was just exactly what we had been looking for. Neo Breton style and with a lovely quiet enclosed garden. We couldn't quite believe that we had found what we had been looking for and have enjoyed it so much ever since. New bathroom put in May 2015 along with new windows and now a brand new kitchen in 2016 where the upper garage once stood. The house now looks better than it ever has and I am really proud of how we have improved it.

What makes this house unique

I have a code for Brittany Ferries which can give you some discount on your crossing just contact me for details

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time, lovely house and garden. Caught a sea bream off the rocks at Le Yaudet. Altogether a very relaxing stay - Rebecca and Matt, Barnsley

A fantastic well equipped cottage in a great rural location so quiet and peaceful. This is a marvellous place to go sightseeing from and close to major towns for shopping. The scenery is breathtaking and the beaches unspoilt - Dave and Sue, Burnham

Our second stay here and we have loved it just as much. Had a lovely day on the beach at Beg Leguer, one of the best beaches we have ever been to - Celia and Phil, Bristol

Perfect weather for a perfect place . We love it here and can't wait to come back- Barbara and Peter, Bristol

Just one word - Fabulous! The first thing we noticed was the silence. A perfect relaxing environment to escape the stresses of home. Char and Reg, Bristol

Our Two Weeks in Ploulec'h

  • 5 of 5

The property is ideal for couples or a larger family. We found everything we needed and the place was clean and modern with a homely feel.

Our stay was based around walking and general sightseeing and the location was perfect for our requirements being in a quiet residential area without losing its sense of privacy.

We would thoroughly recommend a holiday in this area and especially a stay in this house.

Gerry, the owner, was more than helpful with directions and useful information to help us enjoy the facilities on offer in the surrounding area. a really enjoyable trip.

A gem in a very special corner of Britanny

  • 5 of 5

We were completely bowled over by this property. It is obviously used as a main residence by the owner during significant parts of the year as everything from kitchen to living spaces is practical, modern and purposeful without distracting from the breton character of house or location. We ended up using one bedroom per person, simply because we could as a family of four. It is perfect for dog owners as the loop of the GR34 long distance path provides a dpectacular 60-90 minutes walk with a historic keltic harbour bay at its midway point. The next town Lannion, is particularly exiting with its mix of history, culture and quirky tourist charme. It is obviously a living town where you might meet people who are happy to let you try out your french. The spectacular pink granite coast is less than 30 minutes' drive away. It's a place you could use as a base for exploring finistere, but don't have to. Lazing in the garden between barbecues is a perfectly acceptable alternative. It's also foodie heaven with weekly markets all over the place. The butcher in Ploumilliau has arguably the best sausages in the world!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved, loved loved staying in Le Yaudat!!! We had never been to Brittany before and this house exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect with a fully updated kitchen which is equipped for home cooking. We spent hours exploring the beaches, walking trails and local sites and enjoyed watching the sunsets on the rocks. I would highly recommend Le Yaudat and hope to return in the Summer months.

Lovely layout, well appointed and clean property

  • 5 of 5

The house is well laid out, with all mod cons, and extremely comfortable. It is in a quiet cul de sac which is overlooked by a beautiful windmill.

We were delighted to discover that the coastal path was just a short walk from the property so we enjoyed many local walks and a swim in the sea.

We spend out time mainly exploring the many coastal path walks that were within an easy drive of Le Yaudet . The owners has left quite a comprehensive list of local attractions so, as we were feeling very lazy, we just mainly worked through it.

The house is in a very beautiful part of Brittany - a wonderful area for those of you looking for a complete break from the hurly burly of a busy life!

There is a very welcoming Creperie within easy walking distance of the

house.....spend several evenings there.........and so nice to be able to walk home after a couple of glasses of wine!

We would highly recommend this property to our friends and relatives.

8 Minute walk down to the headland at Le Yaudet and there is a lovely quiet beach which is quite perfect for small children. A short drive takes you to the beaches of Beg Leguer and the other beautiful sandy beaches of the Pink Granite coast. There are beautiful beaches all along this coast line and it is fun to just explore for yourself.


The nearest ferry port is Roscoff (Brittany ferries Plymouth-Roscoff) which is only 30 miles away. Other routes would be St. Malo 110 miles, Cherbourg 240 miles. Brest airport is only 44 miles away as is Rennes Airport. If you are travelling with Brittany Ferries please let me know as I am sure I can get you a better deal on the ferry crossing.


10 minutes drive from Lannion where there are 3 very large supermarkets. There is also a good Intermarche on the main road into Lannion about 5 minutes drive. Also Boulangerie and chemist. Ar Vro restaurant in Le Yaudet. Pink Granite coast is about 20 minutes away with it's amazing and beautiful rock formations. Guingamp - Home to En Avant Guingamp (Professional football team and French cup winners 2014) is also 20 minutes drive away. Is also very easy to drive from here to Southern Brittany.

Further Details:

There are also many local towns and villages to explore nearby which are very interesting to visit.

Bookings are Sat to Sat although other dates available on request
