Property Description

This large, impressive house, totally restored and redecorated, is set in a quiet street in the seaside resort of Bénodet, just 500m from the sea front and the sailing harbour. The rooms are light and airy due to the large French windows leading to a large decked terrace overhanging a quiet, enclosed garden. Melen Gwenn provides a good standard accommodation over three levels. The town is a very attractive place to enjoy your holiday with the beach, casino, marina and its exceptional spot on the Estuary of the River Odet and the mildness of its microclimate. There are superb walks all around. The beaches of Mousterlin and Beig Meil are all well worth a visit. The River Odet is ideal for taking a boat trip past many legendary old manors as well as to go to the international sailing centre of Glénan Islands. Quimper, with its old quarter, cobbled streets and cathedral is worth a day trip.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. An outstanding holiday house in a great location, within easy walking distance of sea front, harbour, marina and the town centre. Ideal for a teenage family like ours, with space and privacy a feature of the house. The house is very well equipped for a holiday letting and well supported by the caretakers. And what a view, particularly from the upper floor. Highly recommended. Aug 2011.
  2. There were 4 bikes at the property which could be used but we had taken our own. It might be useful to mention this on the website. There was a very well equipped kitchen and laundry facilities that were excellent. Sept 2011.
  3. Clean, comfortable and everything we needed was provided. An excellent property. July 2011.
  4. A beautiful house with every convenience of the highest quality. June 2011.
  5. A beautiful property in a very nice location. Everything one could need was provided. Close to beach, restaurants and supermarket but in a quiet spot. Would love to return. June 2011.
  6. Lovely location, excellent house. April 2011.

  12. The property is excellent and I will write you a note which will be similar to what I wrote in your book. June 2010.
  13. The property was of the highest quality. The Owners met us there and showed us around and were clearly proud of what they had achieved. It is difficult to criticise the property and we would recommend it to anyone. June 2010.
  14. The central feature of the property is the central spiral stairs, not shown on web site or brochure. Sept 2009.
  15. We have stayed in Benodet previously - but it was our first stay in Melen Gwenn. Property was spacious and comfortable and ideally placed for getting around the town both on foot and cycle. July 2009.
  16. Melen Gwen is a wonderful location for a family holiday, only 200 yards from two top restaurants and all the hustle and bustle of the very picturesque Benodet. July 2009.
  17. Melen Gwenn is simply stunning! All rooms were spacious, clean, well decorated and warm. The pine wood effect throughout really works and the spiral staircase through all 3 floors really makes it. Appliances are top rate and better than at home! July 2009.
  18. Excellent location, beautiful property. May 2009.
  19. Very well situated. Completely matched the description and lived up to our expectations. The children really felt at home there. Very well equipped. Aug 2009.
  20. Excellent villa, so nice we almost didn’t want to go out! Beds exceptionally comfy, definitely what you expect when paying a little bit more than average. Accommodation really suited the size of our party. Loved the area, really pretty. April 2009.
