On the first floor the master bedroom has a standard size double bed and matching Breton furniture, a single folding bed and travel.

The property is about a mile from the sea, and the nearest beach is 3 miles away. About 20 minutes away by car is the attractive town of Pont Aven, once home to Gauguin and the School of Pont Aven, and further afield are the ancient Breton city of Quimper, the old port of Concarneau and the resort of Benodet.
Lovers of seafood will find several good restaurants within a few miles, and visitors to this part of Brittany should not neglect the many crêperies in the vicinity. Cyclists will appreciate the many smooth, almost traffic-free, roads. The Brittany coastal path (GR34) runs nearby.
A large branch of the Intermarche supermarket chain is about a mile away in Moelan, as are a number of other shops including no less than three boulangeries.
An attractive market is held in Moelan in and around the church square every Tuesday, and seafood can be bought as soon as it is landed on the key at nearby Belon.
