Villa Toullou is a recently built coastal villa enjoying a most privileged location only 150m from a sandy beach, one of many found along this coastline. With a hot tub, indoor pool and beach practically on the doorstep, families and children will adore days on the beach exploring rock pools created by the granite rocks so typical of this region.

A seaside feel is maintained throughout with modern, predominantly white furnishings creating a fresh and airy appeal. The kitchen and bathrooms are contemporary in style.  In the living room, patio doors open to the indoor pool area, a great place to relax with the heated pool, indoor terrace and hot tub. A lawned garden and terrace are perfect for a spot of sunbathing when you’re not on the beach. There is one en suite bedroom on the ground floor, with the remaining three on the first floor.

Brignognan-Plages and Plounéour-Trez are delightful villages with a relaxed atmosphere and sense of time standing still. Fishing boats bob in the water, providing fresh fish for the local restaurants and a trip to Ménéham (8km), a coastal hamlet which has been restored, can now be visited to see how life was centuries ago.   Make sure you see the 17th century coastguard cottage which is sandwiched between two huge boulders!   

Please note: the driveway to the property is shared with its sister property, Porz Ar Vir. Both properties are set in their own grounds and are independent.

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Villa Toullou

The museum-village of Meneham

This lovely old Breton seaside village has been preserved to show the traditional way of life of the farmers, fishermen and kelp collectors who typically lived here. There is a museum as well as artisan workshops to visit among the stone cottages.

Enjoy a soak in the hot tub

Your own private hot tub awaits whenever you fancy a bubbly treat!

Stroll to the beach

With the beach just a couple of hundred metres away, you can pop down for a quick swim before lunch, or spend the whole day there nestling into the fine sand and fossicking in rockpools.

A meal out

Head to either Brignogan or Plounéour for lunch or dinner at one of the cafés or restaurants. A crêperie is a must at least once, to try a 'galette', a buckwheat pancake with a choice of savoury filling - they're delicious, especially when accompanied by a cup of Breton cider!

The Chateau de Kerjean

This impressive country house and château sits in grounds of 20 hectares, which visitors are free to roam. Inside, there are 25 rooms to discover, with the chapel, the kitchens and the remarkable collection of local furniture being of particular note.

Water sports at Brignogan and Plounéour

Those with energy to burn can choose from a variety of seaside sports such as sand surfing, sea kayaking, stand-up paddling, sailing, wind surfing and kite surfing. Rock Climbing and archery are also on offer at Plounéour.

Take a walk along the coastal path

The whole shoreline of Brittany is accessible so there are many lovely walks to be enjoyed along the coastal path, with fantastic sea views of course.

Play a round of golf

There is a small (7-hole) golf course about 25 minutes away from the house, the 'Golf de Plouescat et Cléder'. And within an hour, there are two 18-hole courses and a 9-hole.

Day out in Brest

The largest city in this north-west corner of Brittany, Brest has plenty to offer for a day out. The city played an important part in the Second World War and is rich in history and culture. Reflecting its coastal position, attractions in Brest include an excellent Aquarium centre, Océanopolis, and the maritime museum housed in the impressive Castle. Being a modern vibrant city, there is plenty of choice when it comes to eating out or indulging in some retail therapy.

Pamper yourself!

There are spa centres in local towns Lesneven and Plouescat where you can treat yourself to a massage or a beauty therapy.

Arts in Brest

If you're looking for some culture, Brest can offer a fine arts museum, the 'Passerelle' contemporary arts centre, and theatre & ballet performances at Le Quartz.

Find out what a 'parish close' is

Although unusual elsewhere, it is not uncommon in Brittany to find a church or chapel and its outlying monuments surrounded by a stone wall, making a sort of compound or enclosure to mark out the sacred space and protect it from livestock. The 'parish close' at Pleyben Saint‑Thégonnec (40 minute drive) is a fine example of this. Take time to admire the beautiful architecture of the ossuary, the triumphal arch, the Calvary cross monument and the church itself, as well as its interior which has lovely stained glass and many other interesting features.

Visit Roscoff

Roscoff is a characterful little town whose buildings are typically constructed from the distinctive local grey granite, its narrow streets adorned with flowers and full of shops, restaurants or cafés. Many will have heard of - or may even remember - the 'Onion Johnnies' who came over to England from Roscoff; there is a little museum all about them in rue Brizeux. And don't miss 'Le Jardin Exotique', a small but varied and interesting botanical garden focussing on plants from the southern hemisphere.

Spend a day on the Ile de Batz

Ferries run every hour from Roscoff to this quaint little island, which is reached in just 15 minutes. The coastal path around the island takes about half a day to walk around, or you can hire bicycles and enjoy the virtually traffic-free narrow roads. Either way there are beautiful sea views to enjoy, the odd rustic hamlet and historic building, and a choice of about 20 beaches to stop at. Climb the 44-metre-high lighthouse for some fantastic panoramic views.

The Armorique natural park

Head south into this designated regional park to explore Brittany's green interior. Some may like to walk or bike in the hills of the Monts d’Arrée, whilst others may prefer a scenic drive, pausing at unspoilt villages and interesting museums. Either way, you will be wowed by the varied landscapes: heath, forest and lakes. At the Domaine de Ménez Meur, you can learn about Brittany’s traditional animal life, from rare Breton species of livestock to wild species including wolves.
