A nautical thatched cottage - formerly a fishing boat - moored in a quiet corner of a Breton village

Not quite a houseboat, nor a boathouse, but a boat that's somehow a house… La Caloge has all the trappings of life on the ocean wave, with no risk of seasickness!

At the extreme west of a traditional fishing village on a remote Brittany peninsula, you can sleep in this old-fashioned fishing boat bedecked with maritime touches - all the ropes and buoys, and the mast in the middle of the bedroom, will make you forget that you're actually on dry land. After an illustrious career fishing off the coast of Brittany, it has come to rest in the country garden of a charming B&B, run by friendly Pierre and Patricia. The roof has been thatched to keep out the weather, which makes for a truly striking first impression. And the inside is a marvel, with plenty of space, polished oak flooring and an adjoining bathroom. There's a separate kitchen in the shared breakfast room so you can steam your mussels elsewhere, and deck chairs in the garden – rather than on the deck - for lounging.

Waking up in a real-life boat is the right kind of start to a day of water sports in the Baie de Douarnenez, but remember your walking boots as well. Surrounded by nature and the sea, there are plenty of footpaths and cycle trails which are perfect for exploring the local area. The coast, with its magnificent rocky cliffs and wild headlands, provides spectacular views just a few minutes’ walk away. You'll feel like you're sailing on the high seas!

Our guests say...

"We had a wonderful stay- the owners couldn't have been more lovely! the only unfortunate thing was that the weather wasn't as warm/dry as hoped, but I guess that's the risk when you go to Brittany! The boat itself was so cleverly thought out with little touches to make our stay a pleasure, and even the dull weather didn't dampen our spirits as we drove over and filled our van with surfboards/bikes/lots to do, so we mainly enjoyed cycling around the beautiful local area and playing cards in the evenings (with lots of lovely local rose wine and cheese- perfect). One thing which was slightly mis-leading from your website, was the fact that La Caloge was so close to the owner's house it almost touched- not really a problem as they were so lovely, and their house faced the other way, but we never felt very secluded or private at all in the garden with the main house bedroom windows looking directly over us! But other than that we really couldn't fault it (other than the weather)- really lovely :)"
