About Toby & Jane Cusworth

We bought Les Charmettes in 2001 and in 2012 we made significant improvements to the main house including a new kitchen and a downstairs shower room. We also built a bathroom onto the cottage and completely renovated the interior to make it into a self-contained holiday home.

We continue to enjoy staying at Les Charmettes with our children, friends and relatives.

Toby & Jane Cusworth purchased this house in 2001

Why Toby & Jane Cusworth chose Erquy

We decided to buy a seaside house in a part of France that is easily accessible for long weekends as well as summer holidays. We fell in love with Erquy because of the wonderful coastal scenery, the fact that it has a working port and is not just a holiday resort and because the house itself has a lot to offer.

What makes this house unique

Les Charmettes has real character and the benefit of an enclosed garden. It is comfortable, spacious and ideal for family groups. For those who want a break from driving, its position in the centre of town means there are shops, bars, restaurants, the weekly market and several beaches within walking distance.

Excellent house for family group

  • 5 of 5

The description was accurate in every respect. The house, games room and garden were all enjoyed according to the weather on each day and the closeness of town and beach were ideal. There were four adults and four children, ages 6-10, staying in the house with grandparents treating themselves to staying in the cottage thereby gaining another bathroom. We used the barbeque, had a take-away and ate in the garden several times, also visited a restaurant recommended by the owner. He was very helpful with the booking and answering questions, as was the local agent who welcomed us on arrival.

We didn't feel the need to go far as the beaches were the main attraction but we used our bikes to explore the immediate area. There's a good traffic-free cycle route, accessed by quiet roads in the town. We would certainly recommend it to friends and we would happily go again ourselves.

Holiday Conclusions

  • 5 of 5

We found this property to be very comfortable and well appointed. It is in an ideal location, just a couple of minutes walk from an excellent beach and even closer to the main street of the picturesque town of Erquy.

The owner was extremely prompt and accurate in replying to our queries on the property and its facilities

We were very lucky in having non stop sunshine which allowed the grandchidren plenty of opportunity to enjoy the beach, but even if the weather had not been so kind there are many of interesting places to visit in the surrounding area. We would thoroughly recommend this property and location to any large family groups
