Looking out to the oyster farms of the wonderful Quiberon Bay, this former fisherman’s house has been restored with beauty and style to create a stunning holiday abode not far from the sandy beaches of Carnac Plage.

The setting of this glorious home is second to none; a few steps from the waterfront where you can swim in high tide, spend time gazing out of the bay-facing windows as the tide ebbs and flows and farmers bring in their daily haul.

Dating back to the early 1800s, Maison du Pecheur has retained much of its characterful features whilst being renovated with contemporary flair and a great eye for detail. The attentive owners have used traditional materials alongside elegant furnishings, modern fittings and high-end appliances across the homely living room, sleek kitchen and bright dining area. Across the top two floors, including an impressive walk-way, three pretty bedrooms each feature an intricately tiled bathroom, two with modern showers and the third with a romantic bathtub. This is a stylish holiday home in wonderfully authentic surroundings.

Wander down the road to a highly regarded restaurant serving local seafood or old Carnac is just 2km away, with its shops, restaurants, museum and pre-historic stones attracting visitors from across the region. Hire bikes and cycle to the lovely sandy beach at Carnac Plage, 4km away, or continue around the bay to La Trinité-sur-Mer to admire the sailing boats in the marina. You’ll find watersports, boat excursions and Farmer’s markets across the area, not to mention daily fish stalls selling the local catch.

Explore more of this outstanding region by the many walking, biking and horse-riding paths along the Morbihan coast and nearby Quiberon peninsular or take the boat across to Brittany’s largest island, Belle-Île, for yet more amazing beaches and stunning scenery.

Whether you are looking for a holiday filled with beaches and boat trips or walking and watersports, this wonderful part of southern Brittany is waiting to be explored.

What you should know…

  • Travelling with another family or a large group? Rent both Maison du Pecheur and its semi-detached neighbour, Maison Coquillage, connected via a door in the garden – see Domaine Ostreicole for full details
  • One of the two bedrooms on the first floor is accessed via a metal walkway from the top of the stairs (which may not be suitable for young children to use without supervision)
  • There’s only a local road separating the houses from the waterfront 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 
  • Inside the house the phone reception can be patchy although you can usually get some reception by the windows

In a wonderful setting on the bay of Quiberon in southern Brittany, 40km south-east of Lorient, Maison du Pecheur is located in a traditional oyster farming village. Set amongst oyster farms, you’ll hear the odd tractor passing by to collect the shellfish – only a local road separates you from the bay where you can swim when the tide is high. You’ll be able to buy all sorts of shellfish directly from farmers in the local area.

Wander down the road and within 100m you will find an excellent restaurant serving fresh seafood (open five or six days a week for lunch and in the early evening, closed for part of the winter).

You can also walk into the local town, Carnac, only around 20-minutes away where you will find a supermarket, useful shops, bike hire, some restaurants and a lovely Farmer’s market just outside on a Wednesday and Sunday morning. Carnac is also well-visited due to its pre-historic stones dotted around three sites just outside the town as well as a fascinating museum in the town.

Head further along the coast by bike or car and you’ll reach Carnac Plage (4km), a lovely seaside resort with a sandy beach, watersports (kite and windsurfing) and a thalassotherapy centre. On a Thursday evening in July and August there’s an atmospheric night market with live music and festivities.

La Trinité-sur-Mer (7km) can be reached by walking paths from Carnac Plage or it’s just a short drive or cycle ride away. Admire the sailing boats that line the marina, visit the daily fresh fish market or the wonderful Farmer’s market on a Tuesday and Friday morning. You can take boat trips from here, there's an even wider range of watersports and yet more idyllic coastal paths.

Auray (16km) is another charming town with a picturesque port and lots of half-timbered buildings and historic architecture to enjoy. It’s also near Sainte-Anne d’Auray, a major pilgrimage site where guided tours are available.

To the south, the Quiberon peninsula features more stunning beaches, a range of watersports, pretty horse-riding and walking paths and delightful fishing villages. Drive as far as Port-Maria (19km) and catch a boat to Brittany’s largest island, Belle-Île, with its amazing beaches and well-regarded opera festival in August.

The medieval town of Vannes (34km) is also a gem in this part of southern Brittany – explore its ramparts, gardens, aquarium and combine with the Farmer’s market twice a week. From the port you can pick up boat excursions out to sea to discover the islets and incredible landscapes of the Morbihan coast.

Around this area there are over 100km of sign-posted paths for hikers to follow, including walks out to some of the islands at low tide. There are also bird-watching opportunities, lots of places to mountain bike, yet more watersports and of course some of Brittany’s most amazing seafood.

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.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The Quiberon Bay and Morbihan coast in southern Brittany is ideal for families of all ages with its sandy beaches, wonderful nature and so many activities.

The fantastic seaside resort of Carnac Plage is only 4km away where you will find summer watersports and a lovely long sandy beach with supervised swimming during some months. If you are staying in July and August then look out for the weekly night market on a Thursday evening.

A great way to get to know the immediate area with young guests is the little road-train that runs between La Trinité-sur-Mer, Carnac and its pre-historic stones.

There are lots of walking paths across the coastline and beyond, many suitable for a variety of ages and levels. You can also hire bikes in Carnac which is an ideal way for keen cyclists to potter around. For the more adventurous, there are plenty of mountain biking opportunities around the Morbihan coastline.

You’ll find kite and wind-surfing at Carnac Plage, jet-skiing, stand-up paddle boards and sea kayaks in La Trinité-sur-Mer and further watersport centres along the Morbihan gulf and the Quiberon peninsula.

The Quiberon peninsula is also a beautiful spot for horse-riding or head to the port at the southern most trip to catch a boat across to Brittany’s largest island, Belle-Île.

You can also take great boat excursions from La Trinité-sur-Mer and Vannes, a brilliant way to see this incredible coastline.
