An old, fully restored “sailor’s shelter” on the Isle of Tudy peninsula
in the south of Brittany’s French department of Finistère


20 km from Quimper, its airport and its TGV train station which will have 200-minute links to Paris as of this summer.
Some 10 km from Pont-l'Abbé and from Benodet.
The peninsula, surrounded by clear water, is bordered on one side by the mouth of the river Pont-l'Abbé and, on the other, by the sea.
Extremely lively as soon as the weather is clement, there are a number of restaurants and cafés, a grocery, a delightful fishing port and long beaches.


Standing in the centre of the village, this waterside house is an old “sailor’s shelter”. This type of house dates from the early 20th century, when a sailing enthusiast by the name of Jacques-de-Thezac, alarmed by the misery of sea folk, decided to try and improve their living conditions. He is, therefore, responsible for these “shelters” designed as places where they could meet, do activities and study. They also helped to get the sailors out from under the thumbs of the bar and café owners. Easily recognisable courtesy of their pink colour, they were sound, well heated and comfortably furnished.
The Isle of Tudy was also a holiday resort for numerous personalities such as the fashion designer, Paul-Poiret, who, at the end of the 19th century, had a residence constructed here and regularly invited all his friends to sumptuous parties.

The house

The main building, spanning approx. 150 m² of living space, forms an L-shape with its annex building. It is accessed via a little ogee door, set in a granite facade, which leads to a very welcoming patio, sheltered from onlookers. This area, marking the link between the two buildings, is planted with decoratively trimmed boxwood, wisteria and other flowering plants. On the left-hand side is the entrance door into the house, straight on, that of the annex building. Between the two, a door opens on to a large terrace planted with shrubs which overlooks the water and provides a superb view of the river mouth, its small wooded islands and Loctudy opposite.

Ground floor
The entrance hall, with a stairway leading upstairs, provides access, on one side, to a kitchen fitted with granite work surfaces, followed by a toilet. It precedes a large room, spanning approx. 50 m², with stone floor tiles. Widely overlooking the water, this room includes a corner with a fireplace and an entire wall of very discreet cupboards.
First floor
A corridor, with superb oak wood parquet flooring provides access to a toilet, then a bedroom, a shower room, a large dressing room and a study-bedroom where steps go up to a little mezzanine, laid out as a sleeping area.

The annex building

Ground floor
This level of the building comprises a garage, a study, a little kitchen, the boiler room, a room laid out as a wine cellar and a toilet.
First floor
The upstairs includes two bedrooms and a shower room.

Our opinion

Inhabitants of the peninsula claim that Tudy rhymes with paradise in French. It is, therefore, very rare for them to leave and to put a house up for sale. Furthermore, the owners of this waterside home, set in the centre of the market town, have fully restored it in accordance with good trade practices by selecting quality materials. The furniture and the objects that they have moved in form a subtle balance between the old and the new. Hence the unique character of this luxury abode where water is to be seen from every window. Those who enjoy watching have but to take a seat on the settee in order to appreciate the ballet of the sailing boats and the ever-changing weather, others will just have to walk a few steps in order to take advantage of the large, neighbouring beaches or to collect masses of cockles, clams and razor shells.
