One of the oldest houses in Brittany’s Audierne
just a stone’s throw from the port

Location

In the south of the French department of Finistère, very near to Raz Point. Some 30 km from Quimper, Finistère’s county town. The TGV train station puts Paris 3⅓ hours from Paris as of this summer and its airport has 75-minute links to Orly.
Audierne is a little, lively town with a good tourist trade courtesy of its shops, its restaurants, its marina and its fine sandy beach.

Description

This impressive residence is constructed from granite, topped with a slate roof featuring roof dormers. It stands on the old quay of Audierne’s port. Its facade, on a little street, is extended to the right by a stone wall with a doorway leading via a few steps to a first garden, followed by a garage. At the back is a courtyard with an old fireplace still attached to one of the walls, a vestige of the oldest section of the house. Said courtyard provides access to a stone stairway going up to terraced gardens which end with a large wooded plot giving a wide view over the port above the rooftops.

The house

The rear and oldest section of the house dates back to the 16th century whilst the main section dates from the 17th and 18th centuries. It once belonged to a Deputy from Finistère at the French National Convention, who attended and voted during trial of Louis XVI. Its spans a floor surface area of approx. 350 m² over three levels.


Ground floor
The main door opens on to a spacious entrance hall, the floor of which is covered with large granite tiles. This room leads, right, to a dining room where an impressive fireplace takes pride of place. It is followed by a toilet, a wine cellar backing on to bare rock as well as an area planned for installing a shower. Another door provides access to a granite spiral stairway as well as leading out into the courtyard. On the left-hand side is a room-eating area, enhanced with panelling, and a fitted kitchen which precedes a large room, spanning approx. 30 m², with parquet flooring and a fireplace, as well as a pantry.

Our opinion

The warm, hushed atmosphere that reigns throughout the house is the result of full restoration works carried out in accordance with good trade practices, undertaken several years ago by enthusiastic owners. All the old materials used in every room were carefully selected, from the floors to the panelling and including the tap fittings. The choice of colours and furniture plunges visitors into atmospheres bringing certain 17th and 18th century English and Dutch paintings to mind. Given the character of the house and the little town’s excellent tourist trade, those seeking to run a bed & breakfast activity or, better still, a small inn will find this an ideal starting point.
