Villa Freemantle from Select Villas, heated indoor pool & hot tub - From 1520€-2990€ per Week
Villa Freemantle from Select Villas is a south-facing villa with private indoor heated pool, hot tub, sauna, games room, wifi and large enclosed garden, within walking distance of the beach.
This four-bedroom south-facing villa located in southern Brittany stands within large grounds and just 900m from the beach on a lovely stretch of Brittany’s south coast between Concarneau and Lorient.
With its private indoor heated pool, hot tub, games room and large, enclosed garden the villa makes an ideal location for a family holiday at any time of the year.
What makes this villa unique is that the indoor pool is very much at the heart of the property with easy access – and close supervision of children possible – from the surrounding living accommodation. With the lounge area to one side, games room to the other, the dining area and kitchen at one end and the large, south-facing terrace opposite, the swimming pool can be accessed from all these areas. This makes it possible to sit either at the dining table or in the living area and oversee children playing in the pool. This set up has made the villa a huge success with families over the years!
The property overlooks small meadows and a coppice to the front and side, with a couple of houses to the other and to the rear.
The garden is a great size, enclosed, mainly flat and grassed, the perfect place for children to let off steam in relative safety.
Villa Freemantle, featuring contemporary furniture in warm colours, is located in a quiet location down a track leading to just a few houses within 900m from a Blue Flag beach. One of the two sandy coves is supervised by lifeguards (high season only).

With over 1000 kilometres of coastline Brittany offers a great variety of walking for all levels from dramatic cliffs to marshland teeming with wildlife, and wooded tidal creeks to long sandy beaches backed by sand dunes. Including a stretch of the coast in a circular walk is often very straightforward. This is especially easy where peninsulas jut out into the sea and following the coast path brings you almost back to your starting point.
DAY TRIP IDEAS
Pont-Aven is a small village famous for its buttery biscuits and numerous art galleries. Many painters, including Gauguin, were attracted by the beauty of Pont-Aven and all the surrounding area. Pont-Aven has many old mills, traditional stone-built houses and many seafood restaurants. The town also hosts a flower festival on the first Sunday in August.
The main attraction of this important fishing port on the south Brittany coast is Ville Clos, a small walled town built on an island in the natural harbour. Accessed by a bridge from the quayside, the narrow streets within the granite ramparts are lined with shops and restaurants.
Lorient has a rich naval history and the many yachts and buildings surrounding the harbour reflect this as well as the German submarine base which has been turned into a tourist attraction. Why not spend the day in Lorient and hop on a ferry to the Ile de Groix which is located opposite the property. The crossing takes 45 minutes and the island which is the second biggest in Brittany after Belle-Ile has much to offer including lovely beaches, pretty colourful houses in the village, market twice a week and you can even hire bikes to cycle around the island on cycle paths over moorland, hidden coves and many beautiful beaches.
La Forêt-Fouesnant (41km)
Pretty coastal Breton village set in a wooded area between Concarneau and Bénodet. There is lots to do and visit here with a number of footpaths and hiking trails, the old harbour and the superb granite church, the long sandy beach and the marina “Port-La-Forêt”, the third biggest marina in South Brittany, where you can find some of the greatest offshore racing skippers.
Ile de Groix (53km)
The island is accessible by boat from Lorient. The crossing lasts about 50 minutes and the landmarks worth seeing are Port-Louis 16th century fortification, the Grands Sables beach and the Pen Men lighthouse. The island has a wonderful landscape with high and jagged cliffs, seashell beaches as well as coves with red sand or wide stretches of thin and white sand. It is also home of bird reserve which protects a wide range of seabirds.
Although it has a feel of a small village Quimper is Brittany’s Finistere capital. With its slanted half-timbered houses and narrow cobbled streets, great museums, excellent “crêperies”, famous pottery and one of Brittany’s most delightful setting along the Odet river Quimper is a jewel waiting to be discovered.
Carnac has the rather unusual juxtaposition of being a very popular seaside resort with lovely sandy beaches and home to one of the world’s most important prehistoric sites. Over 3000 stones of varying, yet unusually modest, proportions lie in densely packed parallel alignments, stretching for over one kilometre.
The region offers many sporting and leisure activities.
Surfing school 14km away (Plage de Kerou) or in Guidel Plage (25km) offering surfing, sailing, jet skiing and canoeing.
Horse riding 7km in Moëlan sur Mer.
Tennis 5km in Moëlan sur Mer.
Centre Aquatique du Moustoir in Lorient (35km) or Oceanis aquatic complex in Ploemeur (36km) both with pool, slide, water game areas, spa, sauna, aquagym.
Tree top adventure park Le Poisson Volant (37km) just outside Ploemeur.
Parc du Quinquis (15km) in Clohars Carnoët: Family run park including a variety of animals (kangaroos, goats, donkeys, deer, peacocks and more) roaming freely whilst visitors can mingle within this preserved botanical park.
