Renovation project - Locquirec

Renovation project - Locquirec
We are going to spend the night in Locquirec, this is not some where we have been before but it is only approx 40 mins from Huelgoat and if you are coming from the ferry at Roscoff it is only 49 kilometres
We are spending the night at Grand Hotel Des Bains, this is an amazing old country house style hotel situated right by the beach.

The grounds are well maintained lawns with a welcome row of trees along the edge by the beach. This is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet, even more enjoyable when sipping a glass of wine from the bar and enjoying a plate of bread and cheese.

If you are arriving by car, there is a car park in the grounds, you need to stop and open the gate and then drive just to your right. We did not find this at first and ended up in the one way system in the town.

The hotel itself is splendid old style but with all modern conveniences including a pool and spa.
The breakfast was plentiful, with a great selection of breads, pastries and fruit with juices and table served tea and coffee.
We did not eat at the hotel restaurant but we did use the bar and the staff could not be more helpful with both English and French speaking staff.
The town of Locquirec is not big and we managed a walk around the town with a return walk round the coast.

There is a small harbour that has a good selection of restaurants, including a tapas, but that restaurant deserves a blog post all of its own, we really do think it was the best tapas we have eaten outside of Spain.

The beach by the hotel is made of pebbles so great fun for the kids, further round there are sandy beaches. But throughout the sea is crystal clear.

Locquirec is a small beautiful place to visit either as a couple or as a family.
