Brittany Thatched Cottages

NEW - Villa by the sea !. DZ-sea-frontage

Many of our regular guests will be aware that last year, we bought a new villa by the sea at Treboul, Douarnenez (in south west Finistere, Brittany).

We are now offering the villa for rent as holiday accommodation, for the 2017 summer season.

So, if you fancy exploring a new part of Brittany, in a Villa by the sea, take a look at our new contemporary, light and airy, 3 bedroom property (sleeping 6) with stunning sea views over the Bay of Douarnenez .

Or, why not consider a 2-centre holiday, with a week at Brittany Thatched Cottages in Morbihan and a week in our villa by the sea at Douarnenez, in Finistere?
