For those seeking authenticity, charm and beautiful style in southern Brittany, Maison Coquillage offers all of this and more. Just a couple of steps from the waterfront in a small, traditional oyster farming village, this holiday home enjoys wonderful views of the bay and is a leisurely cycle ride from the delightful Carnac Plage. 

Entirely renovated, Maison Coquillage is a traditional stone home which harmoniously blends original Breton features with contemporary decor and elegant furnishings. It dates back to the early 19th century when the chief oyster farmer and his family lived here; now you can sit in the beautiful living room by the original fireplace watching as the tide comes in.   

Enjoy convivial meals in the exquisite kitchen, perfectly equipped for seafood feasts using the freshest fish which can be bought directly from local fishermen. Each of the four pretty bedrooms, three with a king-size bed, feature intricate attention to detail alongside a sense of luxurious simplicity whilst the three bathrooms are a delight. Maison Coquillage allows you to holiday in style in truly characterful surroundings.

Nearby is a highly regarded seafood restaurant or you can wander into the town of Carnac with its prehistoric attractions (even quicker if you hire bikes, the perfect way to travel around). The lovely resort of Carnac Plage is just 4km away; relax on the sandy beach, try out some summer watersports and enjoy the vibrant weekly night market in July and August.

Admire the sailing boats lining the marina in La Trinité-sur-Mer or hire a skipper to take you on a tour of this beautiful coastline. The Quiberon peninsula offers further stunning beaches, wonderful horse-riding paths and pretty fishing villages. You can even take a boat out to Brittany’s largest island, Belle-Île, for yet more summer beauty.

There are endless activities from hiking along the many coastal paths, bird-watching along the Morbihan gulf, biking across incredible landscapes or just pottering around lovely beaches and incredible restaurants of the Quiberon bay and beyond - this part of southern Brittany is a true delight.

What you should know…

  • Travelling with another family or a large group? Rent both Maison Coquillage and its semi-detached neighbour, Maison du Pecheur, connected via a door in the garden – see Domaine Ostreicole for full details
  • There’s only a local road separating the houses from the seafront and you have such amazing views
  • You will most likely spot the odd tractor passing by to the neighbouring oyster farms either side of you 
  • It’s worth noting that inside the house the phone reception can be patchy although you can usually get some reception by the windows

Maison Coquillage is set in a traditional oyster farming village on Quiberon Bay in southern Brittany, around 40km south-east of Lorient. Only a local road separates you from the bay where you can swim when the tide is high. Set amongst oyster farms, watch the tractors passing by in this authentic and beautiful location – you can buy all sorts of shellfish directly from farmers in the local vicinity. 

There’s a highly regarded seafood restaurant within 100m (open from lunch until early evening around five or six days a week, closed some winter months) or you can walk to the local town of Carnac in around 20 minutes (2km) where you will find a supermarket, shops, restaurants and bike hire. There’s also a great Farmer’s market near the town on a Wednesday and Sunday morning.

The local area is well-known for its pre-historic stones which can be visited across three sites, a short drive or bike ride away, and there is a Prehistoric Museum in Carnac itself.

There’s also a wonderful beach at the lovely seaside resort of Carnac Plage, around 4km away by bike or car, where you will find white sand, watersports such as wind and kite-surfing as well as a thalassotherapy centre. If you are staying in July and August, look out for the night market on a Thursday evening where you can enjoy live regional music and festivities.

There are walking paths continuing on to La Trinité-sur-Mer (7km), a picturesque port with all sorts of super-fast sailing boats. Visit on a Tuesday or Friday morning for the atmospheric Farmer’s market whilst the fish market is open daily. There is a great range of watersports, you can take boat trips out and there are many beaches to discover by exploring the beautiful coastal paths.

A little further north is Auray (16km), a delightful town filled with history and charm. The port is an especially pleasant place to stroll, admiring its half-timbered houses and beautiful architecture dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Stop off in one of the atmospheric cafes or head to the nearby major pilgrimage site of Sainte-Anne d’Auray where guided tours are available.

A visit to the Quiberon peninsula to the south offers stunning beaches, watersports, beautiful walking and horse-riding paths as well as pretty fishing villages. The main town is Saint-Pierre-Quiberon (14km) or head south to Port-Maria (19km) where you can catch a boat to the island of Belle-Île, Brittany’s largest island and well-known for its beaches and its opera festival in August.

The beautiful town of Vannes (34km) is also a must for its medieval old town, ramparts and gardens, twice-weekly Farmer’s market and aquarium. Pick up a boat from the port to see some of the incredible islets and landscapes of the Morbihan gulf. The coastal paths around this area are ideal for walkers with over 100km of sign-posted footpaths and you can even walk out to some of the islands at low tide. There are yet more watersports and cycling opportunities around this part of the magnificent coast, not to mention bird-watching and some of the most amazing seafood in Brittany.

Region

Brittany is famed chiefly for its beaches, and with so much coastline to explore it’s certainly one of the best reasons to visit the region. But there’s more to Brittany than sun, sea and sand, and while a good chunk of our villas and chateaux in Brittany are found next to the coast the ones further inland are just as tempting. Want to get the inside scoop on Brittany before you book? You’ll find our full Brittany travel guide below, full of tips, inspiration and great things to do.

With sandy beaches, incredible nature and a wealth of land and sea-based activities, this part of southern Brittany will appeal to all ages.

Around 4km away is a beautiful long sandy beach at the seaside resort of Carnac Plage which is popular with families and there is supervised swimming in the summer. If staying in July or August, head down on a Thursday evening for the atmospheric night market.

Younger guests may also enjoy the road-train that runs between Carnac, its pre-historic stones and La Trinité-sur-Mer; a lovely way to get a feel of the immediate area with your family.

Walking is also a great way to get around – you can wander to the local town, Carnac, in about 20 minutes and there are so many walking paths for all abilities across the coast. Bike hire is available in Carnac, another fantastic way to reach the beach and local towns. Keen mountain bikers will also love many of the paths across the Morbihan coastline.

There are so many watersports activities across the region from wind and kite-surfing at Carnac Plage just 4km away and further activities such as jet skiing, stand up paddle boarding and sea kayaks in La Trinité-sur-Mer. The Quiberon peninsula to the south offers further watersports, beautiful walking and horse-riding paths as well as boat trips to the stunning island of Belle-Île, Brittany’s largest island.
