A late 19th century house, with a sea view,
once home to Georges-Brassens in Lézardrieux

Paimpol, COTES-D'ARMOR brittany 22500 FR


In the French department of Côtes-d'Armor, in surroundings featuring islands and islets, including the famous Isle of Bréhat. About 20 km from Lannion and its airport which has two or three return flights to Paris everyday. 40 km from Saint-Brieuc, with its TGV trains station providing 2⅓ hour links to Paris. In Lézardrieux, a small commune where schools, shops and even moorings are but a few minutes away. The surrounding coastline and pathways are great to explore and provide several points of view.


This property, with its enclosed, wooded garden spans more than 5,000 m². It stands in a dominant position facing the river. With four entrances, three of which are for cars and one for pedestrians, as well as a direct access to the beach below, it comprises a house, spanning more than 325 m², two garages, one of which is double, and two garden sheds, one of which is made of stone with a slate roof. Miscellaneous alleyways and pathways make it possible to take full advantage of its pleasantly laid out gardens.

The house

This south-east facing house comprises a section featuring late 19th century classical architecture, with stone quoins, which was adjoined by an extension on the north side in order to increase its living space. Under a slate roof, with three triangular pediment, gable roof dormers, it now spans more than 325 m² over four levels. It was fully renovated some fifteen years ago and has been lived in and meticulously looked after ever since. It also has a lift between the garden level and the first floor as well as two terraces on the south-east and north-west sides. A garage area is laid out under the south terrace, together with a storage area for the oil tanks.

Ground floor
The entrance hall provides access, left, to a lounge, with a fireplace, extended by a second lounge. On the right-hand side of the entrance hall is a dining room which continues into a kitchen and its pantry. Also on the right-hand side, a corridor leads to the lift, a toilet and one of the lounges. There is parquet flooring throughout except for the kitchen which is tiled.
First floor
This level comprises two bedrooms, spanning 16 and 20 m², a bathroom, a shower room, a toilet, a dressing room as well as a study and several hall areas.
Second floor
Although under the rafters, this level has a great deal of space, laid out in two separate areas, connected by two independent stairways. On the south side is a landing, providing access to two bedrooms, with a shower room, whilst a vast bedroom on the north side also has a shower room.
Garden level
This lower level comprises three areas, including a storeroom, a boiler room and a laundry-linen room as well as the lift machinery.

The outbuildings

In front of the house is a double, 50 m² garage which, because of its size, forms an additional storage area. On the right of the house and adjoining the kitchen, a small stone pavilion, with a slate roof, is fitted with a sink, making it possible to store and/or clean the catch of any fishing trips. A garden shed stands on the heights of the grounds.

Our opinion

Few people know just how much Georges-Brassens appreciated Brittany and that this residence was his refuge during the last ten years of his life, far from the hustle and bustle of Paris and Sète. This immaculately kept property has been developed over the years courtesy of its current owners. With no internal or exterior works to be carried out, this comfortable house can be lived in straightaway. And yet, the premises still reflect the soul of the poet. Outings on foot or on the water, the immediate surroundings are ideal for mobile and immobile activities as it is equally pleasant to just settle down on the terrace and admire the view. Blue shutters and little wrought balconies give a proud air to this beautiful house, nestling in its verdant setting. The nearby airport and TGV train station mean that it could be used as a permanent residence without being isolated or as a means of going to the beach, just below the house, for an invigorating weekend or for longer restful holidays.
