Perfect traditional seaside holiday destination.This is a delightful compact but purpose built holiday house, perfect for those looking for a traditional seaside bucket and spade holiday.

Having wandered in from the heat of the sun, this cool, bright and fresh little house offers a welcome break. The ground floor is an open plan living, dining and kitchen area, well designed to fit in all you need for a simple seaside holiday.

Just off the kitchen is the shower room. Up the stairs you find yourself in the mezzanine bedroom with a large comfortable double bed
Step outside Brise de Mer and straight into a delightful private enclosed garden. After your busy day building sandcastles take a rest on one of the sunloungers on the suntrap patio whilst your baby plays under the shade of the trees. Having stopped at the local fish market you can bbq and enjoy your fresh seafood - Ile d’Oleron is famous for its wonderful oysters.
To the front of the house is the quite cul de sac that makes up the complex, walking to the end of this takes you to a quiet road leading directly down to the beach about 5 minutes away.
