The pretty harbour at Port des Monards can be seen from the garden gate and is a calm quiet backwater with two family restaurants, each with varied menus and outdoor dining and relaxation areas. The picnic tables on the port are great for the days you're staying local, for a days fishing, sun bathing and enjoying the local seafood or perhaps your own picnic delights. The port of Les Monards is a relaxed working and leisure port where there's always something to watch and wonder at. The beaches, ports, and seaside towns very close by have inspired the nautical theme running through the house.
