Perks for the Parents

This stunning designer cottage with a pool and optional hotel service is in a small fishing village, where life flows to the rhythm of the tides. Overlooking the sea in Buguéles, Côtes d’Armor, it is a stone-built former farmhouse with stylish modern timber extensions providing a striking contrast between old and new. Inside, a spa, designer living spaces and five bedrooms offer space for all the family to enjoy. The sea is directly in front of the house and you can walk to the beach. The GR34 long-distance footpath passes alongside the house and offers a range of walks.

Why Kids Love it

The children's room is bright and colorful and has 4 twin beds, including 2 on the mezzanine level, plus a shower and wash basin. There is a children's play area with table, games, comics and blackboard. A crib and high chair can be provided on request. A variety of activities are available depending on the tide: watersports at high tide and horseback riding or fishing when the tide is out. Swimming is an option regardless of whether the tide is in or out. The gardens include plenty of room to play and a heated outdoor pool (May-September) while inside there is a spa.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 days. The mezzanine level is in the children’s bedroom and is accessed by a ladder; the mezzanine level and ladder are not suitable for toddlers and younger children. Children should be supervised around the suspended fireplace and pool areas. The pool is gated. Ungated steps and a variety of terraces and levels outside combined with the children's bedroom make this property better for older children and not suitable for toddlers and crawling babies. The house comes with a full concierge service and everything is possible (for an additional fee): pre-arrival grocery shopping, food delivery, brunch on Sunday morning, daily or mid-stay housekeeping, drop-off dishes prepared by the chef, private chef, crêpe evening, cookery course, pastry course, massage, bike/paddle board/kayak hire and organisation of excursions. The outdoor pool is heated from May to the end of September.

About the Location

The residence is in a little fishing village called Buguéles, between Saint Malo and Brest on the north Brittany coast. The house is by the water's edge with direct access to a beach of fine sand. The GR34 long distance path runs beside the house: walks can take you as far as the great cleft in the rocks known as Le Gouffre de Plougrescant heading eastwards or Port-Blanc then the beautiful beach at Trestel heading westwards. Buguéles can be reached car, by train, or by plane; the train station and the airport are in Lannion, a 25-minute drive away. The ferry terminal at St-Malo is a 2-hour drive away; Roscoff is 1.5 hours away. Car rental is essential. In Penvenan, a nearby town 10 minutes’ drive away, you will find restaurants, 2 supermarkets, 2 bakeries, butchers and everything you could need.

Accommodation Details

The beach house is set over 350 sqm and is carefully laid out around an internal access corridor. There are 5 bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms or shower rooms. There are 2 bedrooms with queensize beds on the ground floor plus a children's bedroom with 2 twin beds and a mezzanine level with 2 further twin beds. The upper level has another 2 bedrooms each with a queensize bed. Living spaces include a children’s play area, a communal living area with sofa and fireplace, a kitchen with Gaggenau equipment, a billiard room, a home cinema room and a spa with jacuzzi, sauna and shower. A utility room has a washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board and steam iron. Outside space includes 3 terraces with tables and benches, a sofa and plancha grill, sun loungers and an outdoor pool plus 2 loose boxes for horses and a walled, landscaped garden covering 2800 m2 (0.7 acre).

Style Notes

Ancient and modern. The cottage was originally a longère – a long, low stone building typical of this part of the coast - and has been remodelled with decidedly contemporary touches. Light floods into the bright, spacious modern timber extensions through large windows overlooking the coast and gardens and terraces. An internal access corridor seamlessly links the living space with the private spaces. Inside and out, furniture, lighting and other items have been chosen to embody a practical, comfortable, stylish and understated design aesthetic. We love the suspended fireplace, the views of the sea and the fun children’s bedroom for a group of older children.

Brittany, France

Wild and rugged

The northwest corner of France is wild and rugged, dotted with sandy beaches and filled with activities for children of all ages. From crashing waves and surf beaches to sea life centers, ancient castles and teeming tide pools, the coastline and the activities you can pursue along it is the major draw. Inland, farms, standing stones, local markets, museums and treetop parks ensure that whatever the weather, there is something to entertain the whole family.
