Property description
A 1930’s seaside villa in Perros-Guirec, facing the sea and the 7-island archipelago - ref 340885
Perros-Guirec, a prestigious seaside resort for more than a century, is in a protected natural site, with an unusual landscape where land and sea are dotted with pink granite rocks forming shapes that appear to have been carved by the wind. This town takes on another dimension during the summer months. It has a reputation as a family seaside resort courtesy of its fine sandy beaches bordered by outstanding villas and its coastline partially composed of impressively shaped pink granite rocks. Several festivals as well as its natural, architectural and religious heritage, its unforgettable coastal paths and its many water-sport activities are but a few of its assets which, since the late 19th century, have encouraged many new residents, notably numerous artists, to settle locally. Elected “Village Préféré des Français” (the French People’s favourite village) in 2015, this site is one of Brittany’s main tourist attractions.
A TGV train station as well as all shops and administrative amenities are to be found in the nearby town of Lannion.
This villa, characteristic of the local area, overlooks a 1.4 km-long, fine sandy beach and has a panoramic view of the 7-island archipelago. It is there where everyone wants to be whilst preserving the peace and quiet. Ideally laid out in its vast garden, out of sight of onlookers, the house stands looking out over the sea which appears to be a part of all the rooms facing the ocean. A little pedestrian path leads to the fine sand, restaurants, a children’s club, a casino and numerous water-sport activities.

The villa

This villa looks down on a seafront, the colourful hues of which range from turquoise to emerald. The building has two projecting features on the street-facing, front facade: a polygonal tower on one corner and a protruding bay on the right-hand side, forming a gable wall facade. The facade facing the sea is enhanced with corbelling topped with a covered balcony, whilst a second bay goes up into a roof dormer featuring a triangular gable pediment. The carcass is constructed from exposed granite stone. Pink granite has been used for the quoins, the framing around the openings and for decoratively bordering the gables.

The garden

Three phoenix welcome visitors as they come through the property’s remote-controlled gates. These exotic, majestic palm trees, characteristic of the Canary Isles, have become perfectly acclimatised, “like fish in water”, to the pink granite coast, especially in Perros-Guirec where they greatly appreciate the mild, clement and sunny climate, with its very rare negative temperatures. The entire garden looks out over the sea and the rear of the villa provides a glimpse of a secluded terrace. Gardeners have done their utmost to plant the garden with a wide variety of flowers that explode into a kaleidoscope of colours and fragrances as soon as spring approaches.

The detached garage

The outside of a building, standing in a corner of the garden facing the main entrance, is covered with shingle, reflecting a blue hue, which blends subtly with the marine backdrop. This building is heated on the ground floor. It would also be possible to put heating upstairs in order to create a sort of little English cottage. It could also be kept as a perfectly sound storage area or even turned into an artist’s studio.

Our opinion
The easily reached beach and town centre of a renowned seaside resort make this villa a strategic haven for a seaside way of life or holidays. Its architecture, typical of the outstanding local, 1930’s villas, has resulted in a layout perfectly in keeping with tradition and modern-day tastes. The internal home comforts of these premises are ideal, just like its geographical location.
