Quai Ouest Paradise
Come and discover the Wild West! Located in Lampaul Plouarzel at the tip of Britany, France, facing the islands of Ouessant and Molène (ferry 18km away), enjoy a relaxing vacation in two cozy wooden lined in-suite bedrooms overlooking the ocean.
And why not brush-up on your French with private lessons between two excursions in the region, with a bilingual tutor?
Hardly more than an hour away from Roscoff ferry, 30mn from Brest international airport (direct flights from Southampton for 18 quid in summer), the house is located on the famous GR34 hiking track accessible directly from the gate. Ramblers will enjoy walks (or jogs and mountain bike rides) on a stunning path along the shore. A 2mn walk takes you to the Plage du Gouerou, the beach that hosts the French bodyboarding championships with good surf. Calmer beaches more suitable for kids are just 10 mn away.
Once here, all local shops and restaurants are within walking distance. But should you chose to chill at home, your host, a self-taught chef, can offer you a variety of local and exotic dishes inspired from years of expat life in the Middle east and Asia. The “Jungle Bar” welcomes you for sundowners with a sea view or garden BBQs.
Activities such as a painting session in the workshop, fitness with weight machine and free weights, beach gear rental are also available. A library of hundreds of books in all languages is at your disposal. Pick-up from airport and ferry can be arranged.
An unforgettable experience for just 30 pounds a night! Price includes bedsheets and towels (most French rentals charge extra for that, which, on top of being hidden cost, is also unpractical if you have to bring your own in a suitcase!).
The two rooms are connected, each with a double bed. One has also a sofa that turns in ato bed for a single person, the other a cot suitable from new-born up to 10 year-old (1.35m in length). Package deal for both rooms at 50 pounds. For larger families or groups of friends total capacity of 9 with guest rooms on the ground floor. Locate it on the map: 60 rue du Gouerou, 29810 Lampaul-Plouarzel. SEE YOU SOON!
