Breiz Armor – Pouldreuzic
Quite surprised that this is one of the few reviews of Breiz Armour on TripAdvisor – so I have decided to make it a comprehensive one. It is a delightful hotel and well worth a visit for at least 2- 3 days if not longer!
Wanted to stay for 3 nights right by the sea and this hotel certainly fitted the bill. Location about 25 yards from the very small tidal harbour on Penhors beach with no buildings whatsoever between the hotel and the Atlantic Ocean. Sea view room booked via Logis website. First floor room with nice double bed, bathroom & free wifi. Door opened out onto huge communal balcony which stretches around the front of the hotel giving a magnificent view of the sea and vast beach . There were only a few people staying in the hotel when we were there so we actually had the whole balcony area to ourselves – chairs, tables and loungers provided outside each room. Suspect in high summer season it might get a bit busy on the balcony area but it really is vast. Each room has roller shutters operated from inside which effectively block out light, sound of the waves crashing and provide excellent security.
Room also equipped with a fridge ( great for chilling some rose wine ), air conditioning and a safe. Plenty of parking at the rear of the hotel and access after 10pm was via key through a rear door. We used this hotel as a base for exploring this part of Brittany and it was very convenient to get to Quimper, Pointe Du Raz etc.
Our first night was a Saturday and this hotel quite clearly is a big favourite with the locals and is the only restaurant for about 3-4 miles. There were a couple of bars open but don’t think they did food in the evenings ( or at all ). We managed to get the last table in the restaurant Sat night for dinner and despite being right by the door to the kitchen and entrance way we had a good meal ( 29 euro set menu ). The restaurant specialises in seafood with lobsters stored in a boat in the hallway waiting for their despatch ! A La Carte menu included lots of meat options as well. Six locals came in wearing traditional Breton costume which made for quite a colourful evening. Restaurant has a panoramic view out to sea and the best tables are next to the window.
We ate the next two nights also in the restaurant as it was very good and after a day sightseeing did not want to drive off to find somewhere else. On Monday nights the restaurant only provides food for residents with a set 3 course menu ( 23 euros ) which you need to book before noon on a Monday to get. Think this meal was our best with a fish soup starter, grilled bass main course and choice of desert. Wine list was comprehensive and had some good Rose de Loire for just 10 euros as well as local cider for 6 euros a litre.
Breakfast was served in a different room - but with sea views – and was a good selection of breads, croissant, cheese, ham etc
Despite the area being quite remote there was a lot going on and expect in July/August it would be quite busy. The beach is great for long walks when the tide is out but don’t think it is particulary good for bathing – running in and out of the waves would be fine but suspect there are some strong currents further out. Hotel also has some self catering appartments close by which looked good as well as running a “sea shell museum” across the car park .Hotel has a nice large garden area to the side with tables and rush style parasols – there is also an old chapel about 100 yards away which I think you can visit with a key from reception.
If you are looking for plenty of sea air, panoramic beach views and excellent sea food then spend at least 2 or 3 days here. They have a useful website which enables online booking. We would return again for the food & views and proximity to the sea. A most enjoyable stay !
