Tucked away on the edge of the sleepy village of Kerizur, its well-kept garden bordering open fields to the rear, Les Sables Blancs enjoys a calm setting which lends itself to rest and repose.

Coupling a vibrant contemporary décor with up-to-date facilities, the owner has achieved a highly comfortable and welcoming home. All on one level, the accommodation is conveniently laid out, and the open plan living space is practical for a family group to cook, dine and relax together.

Outside a number of terraces and seating areas allow the party to spread out and find shade or sun as preferred. The pool and terrace has been thoughtfully located to catch the sun first, whilst the southwest-facing dining terrace is well placed to enjoy the afternoon sun. Views from the dining terrace look across the garden to the fields beyond.

In addition to Poulluen (600m), the Loctudy area boasts a number of other lovely beaches only a short drive in either direction, among which are Lodonnec (1.5km) and Sables Blancs (1.7km).

The larger town of Pont-l’Abbé (8km) has a further selection of cafés, restaurants and shops, as well as the market held every Thursday.

Known as the ‘Pays Bigouden’, this area is considered the heartland of Brittany, a place to discover the traditions and folklore of the Breton people, through the ages and to the present day. Those who relish getting out into the countryside will find ample opportunity for bird watching, coastal walks, cycling and fishing. Showing the other face of Brittany, the chic boutiques, spa facilities and top class restaurants of Bénodet (22km) are also within easy reach.

Location of Les Sables Blancs

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Les Sables Blancs

Parc Naturel Régional d’Armorique

This large swathe of protected parkland encompasses a varied landscape, from the sandy beaches and rocky headlands of the Crozon peninsula, to the heathland and craggy hilltops of the Monts d’Arrée, the highest hills in Brittany, and beyond to the dense woodland of the area around Huelgoat. The wildlife within the park is diverse from sea birds on the islands, European otters and beavers in the rivers and swamps, and birds of prey.

Walk to the beach

Take a short walk to the beautiful white sands of the Plage de Poulluen while taking in the unspoilt landscape and most interesting heritage.

A day out in the Loctudy area

Just a short drive in either direction from Les Sables Blancs takes you to a number of lovely beaches, two of these being Lodonnec and Sables Blancs. A variety of shops, bars and restaurants can also be found in this area while walking around.

Discover Breton culture

Loctudy sits on the Penmarc'h peninsula south of Quimper, in a region known locally as the Pays Bigouden and considered the heart of Breton culture. The 'Musée Bigouden' museum in Pont-l'Abbé is a good place to start, to learn about Breton traditions and folklore. The exhibits focus on the customs and traditional dress of the area, in particular the lace headdress that has become emblematic of Brittany as a whole.

A trip out into the countryside

There are plenty of opportunities for those who relish getting out and about into the countryside with the Loctudy area boasting many opportunities for bird watching, coastal walks, cycling and fishing.

See the 'other side' of Brittany

A contrast to the traditional, rural picture of Brittany, Bénodet is often described as the Breton Riviera with its chic boutiques, spa facilities and top class restaurants.

Take a trip to the port

Travel to the Loctudy port area where you can take part in a number of watersport activities and visit the marina. While there, why not buy some of the fresh fish for sale to take back and serve later on in the day.

Day out in Brest

Brittany's second largest city, Brest offers a multitude of attractions and activities: the Castle and Tour Tanguy are the principal landmarks, and those wanting to delve into the city's history should visit the museums housed therein; art museums, cinemas and theatres aplenty for lovers of the arts; the excellent aquarium centre Océanopolis is a fantastic family day out.

Locronan

This picture postcard village of well preserved stone houses around a picturesque central square is about 45 minutes away by car. As modern development has been strictly controlled here, several filmmakers have been drawn to use the village as the backdrop for a bygone era. Whilst in this very authentic Breton setting, why not try the quintessential Breton treat - a Kouign Amann cake!

Lanniron Château and Gardens

Set on the bank of the river Odet, directly south of Quimper city centre, the Château de Lanniron was the former residence of the Bishops of Quimper. The gardens have been restored in accordance with historic documentation, and present a typical French 17th Century garden. Terraced areas descend down to the river, with many unusual tree species as well as a good show of flowers and a produce garden.

No holiday in Brittany is complete without...

a meal in a local crêperie. You won't have to go far to find one - they're everywhere! First choose a 'galette' (a savoury filled crêpe made with buckwheat flour) then follow it up with a sweet crêpe - anything from a simple beurre citron to a highly indulgent option laced with caramel or smothered in cream!

Surf's up at Pointe de la Torche

A defiant little headland, La Torche sticks out from the southern end of the wild Bay of Audierne, in southwest Finistère. Here surfers congregate to ride the magnificent, long, ocean rollers. Windsurfing is also popular. Behind the beach, surf shops and crêperies sit side by side.

Cruise round the Glénan Isles

Boat trips depart from the port of Bénodet to the Iles de Glénan. This archipelago of seven main islands boasts fine sandy beaches and clear lagoon-like waters. Plenty of opportunity for walking and birdwatching, as well as kayaking or diving for the more energetic.

Concarneau

Enjoy a wander around the old walled town of Concarneau, the Ville Close, which has lots of little boutiques and places to stop for refreshment! Watch the boats in the harbour, and learn about the local industry at the Fishing Museum which is part on land part on water. Finish up with a top class meal in one of Concarneau's excellent fish and seafood restaurants.

Anyone for golf?

Keen golfers can play at the Golf de l’Odet at Clohars-Fouesnant (18 holes, par 72, 5843m) or the Golf de Kerbernez in Plomelin (9 holes, par 35, 2643m) which are both about half an hour's drive away.

Anyone for crazy golf?!

Time for a family competition at the 'Minigolf de Penfoul' in Bénodet!
