An old, fully restored sailors shelter on the Isle of Tudy peninsula in the south of Brittanys 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 sailors 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 houseThe 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.
