About philip james

English emigre to Finistere since 1996. I moved mainly for the swimming, as the sea here though cold, is fantastically clear and invigorating. Plougasnou beach is for me the very best place to swim and I have tried a few other places around the world.

philip james purchased this cottage in 2006

Fantastic Holiday Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two boys and I had a wonderful two weeks stay. The cottage is surrounded by beautiful countryside and set within a very pretty garden. The house is very sweet, it has a happy feel about it and is well set up with all the essentials. We felt immediately at home, Philp is the perfect host. He lives next door and is around enough to help with any information needed or a friendly chat but gave us the space we needed. We had lovely weather and spent a lot of time at the beach. There is plenty to do in and around the area from art exhibitions to high rope adventure days in the trees. We all agreed we would love to return one day and would recommend highly.

Maisonnette agréable et bien située pour faire du tourisme dans cette magnifique région.

Le couchage de la chambre adulte ainsi que le couchage des deux petits lits sont bons.

Seul "petit" bémol: la route est très passante en journée, mais calme la nuit.

Philip, le propriétaire est très sympa et discret.
