  • Description


    About the Place:
    The property is situated on an island in South Britanny, France, called Belle-Isle en Mer. Many tourists come here to admire the ocean and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Many photographers and painters also enjoy its beauty by capturing it in several editors different ways depending on the weather.

    The house is about 50 years old and was built in the rocks. It has a very charming feel. The room has a beautiful view of the ocean, and if the weather is clement you can leave the window open at night and allow the waves to rock you to sleep. It's about 50 meters away from the longest beach, which is the perfect place for morning jogs or yoga. And depending on the season, different activities are available such as sailing or walking the coastal path.

    This house requires help with clearing the garden and cutting wood.

    It can accommodate one to two persons for 15 days.

    About the host:
    Having travelled around the world pretty much my entire life, I am fluent in English, Dutch as well as French. Being born on the island, I can share my knowledge about its history; geographically and historically. I am an artist and I would be happy to help you get in touch with your own creativity.
