Some of the best beaches in Brittany are a short drive from the villa. Veryac'h and Kerleven are particularly recommended, but we also like surfing at Goulien and snorkelling at St Hernot - it's on all the postcards! Rockpooling at low tide is a great hit with the kids.
Visit picturesque Cameret-sur-Mer, Morgat and Le Fret. Relax in the excellent quayside restaurants and cafes. Take a boat trip from the harbour to see Morgat’s caves.
Visit Crozon market on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month for good local produce and souvenirs.
'Mardi in Morgat' is a popular evening festival during high season, with live bands and a night market.
For panoramic sea views go walking to the Pointe des Espagnols, just 1.5 kms from the house, or walk to any of a number of ancient forts around Roscanvel
Take the coastal trail at nearby Cap de Chevre, the Tas de Pois rocks at Pointe de Pen-Hir, or further afield at Pointe du Van and Pointe du Raz.
Visit Menez Hom - the highest point in Brittany.
