Amazing, original, and practical, this charming south facing house is perfect for a family holiday in Brittany. It has been designed by is owner- an architect- in order to fully enjoy the charms of the peninsula, in a simple and sociable way. The materials were tastefully chosen to maximise the energetic performance – the fantastic wood burning stove in the living room can heat the whole house in winter. The use of chipboard as a design element, and for its environmental benefits, creates warmth in all the rooms, combining perfectly with the grey concrete floor.
The large table on the terrace is perfect for outdoor dining on sunny days. The living space deserves its name – you can cook there, play table football, or have dinner, before meeting in the living room area, for an evening chatting about the day's surf. In fact, the peninsula is one of the region's best spots for surfing. The small fishing port in Portivy is picture perfect and only 300 metres away. It has a family beach, local shops, and restaurants.
