The house is situated in Brittany, on the South headland of the Finistère, Cap Sizun, at 12km from the Pointe du Raz, in Audierne Bay, the Natural Reserve of the Iroise Sea.

Quimper (40 km), Lorient (100 km) & Brest (100 km).
This house was build in 1924 by Joseph, our Grand Father.
He was bricklayer in Brittany. It has always been our family house where we spent all our holidays, that’s the reason why we are very proud and attached to it.
In the past, there was no warm water, only in the kitchen. There was no bathroom, and restrooms were outside the house, in a little shelter.
I still remember the feeling I had when I was young, when we came here for Easter holidays. It was very wet even with a hot-water bottle with me in my bed, typical atmospher of a sea side’s house.
Immense white sand beach, supervised during July and August, at 2km from the house.
