“Chilled out and relaxing - you'll feel at home here.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

We had a very pleasant stay here in the middle of August when you might have expected it to feel crowded and noisy. It didn't - there was no noise from neighbouring apartments and none to disturb you from the small road between the Residence and the beach.

Make sure you advise Reception if you will be arriving outside their opening hours as you will need the code to the safe outside to collect your keys. Parking is convenient as you have your own dedicated space allocated to your apartment. There was plenty of space in bike racks.

Our apartment was up 2 flights of outdoor stairs - not easy when you arrive and leave with all your clobber! Think we would have been better off with ground-floor accommodation if we had taken the dog, which was an option.

Apartments have a nice beachy feel with hard floors throughout. The kitchenette area in ours (A25) was small and there's no socket to plug the kettle into. We had to put it on the floor. Cooking without a proper oven was a bit of a challenge - you have 4 hotplates and a microwave with a grill function. But otherwise - comfy beds, clean bedding, excellent showers. Balconies are cheek by jowl but on this top floor we had an attractive view across the pool and landscaped area to pine trees and the beach beyond. Fairly steep stairs to double bedroom and bathroom but another bathroom on the ground floor was very useful. Cool and airy upstairs with velux skylights.

One of the sofas in the living area converts into a single and pull-out bed.

Pool was a bit chilly but fine on a warm day. Sea was very warm - plenty of seaweed on this beach but just beyond it the sea was lovely for bathing. There are some water sport options for hire from the beach - kayak, stand-up paddle etc. and an ice cream/snack bar.

Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. There is tea and coffee available there free of charge during opening hours. Slight drawback: if you need Internet access, the wifi you can buy (16 Euros for a week) is only available in Reception or just outside so if Reception is closed, you have to sit on the steps outside with your device!

Top tip: although there are 2 outdoor table tennis tables, you have to buy the bats and ball so take your own if you have them.

We found the nearest town, Fouesnant, a bit 'dead' but Foret Fouesnant was better and there's a nice walk to there from Cap Coz. Concarneau Is worth a visit. Quimper is lovely. Benodet is pleasant but heavy on the Brits!

Other local beaches like Mousterlin and Beg Meil are good. Pointe de la Torche is best for body-boarding or surfing.

We are fans of Pierre et Vacances residences (see review of Les Bergers ski apartments in l'Alpe d'Huez) as they have a nice French feel and noise has never been a problem. We've also enjoyed their residence at Le Touquet.

But back to Cap Azur - we would definitely return. And you can't say fairer than that.

Room Tip: All face in direction of sea. Just depends if you want ground floor with small grassed area or firs...

Wow, travelling down for a camping holiday with 2 kids on July, we stopped off here for 2 nights looking for a relaxing kick start to our holiday and came across this real gem. Accomodation was modern, clean and with a real no fuss and helpfull attitude from staff we had a wonderful stay. Beach right across the road and a nice safe pool for the kids. Rooms were a little pricy even for this time of year but all in all a great location with beautiful villages, cafes and markets close by it makes for a great stop off point. This area of the country has beautiful beaches and walking areas. Well recommend.

Excellent reception staff throughout our week's stay. They helped on every occasion.
The apartment was good with views overlooking the pool and the sea. I guess the season was coming to an end because the complex was not full so not sure what it would be like there in the middle of summer, but we found it a very relaxing week.
There are several places to eat and drink within Cap Coz itself and even more if you travel a few minutes to either Fouesnant or Benodet.
Some great walks along the coast in either direction.
We would recommend a trip to Pont Aven, about 30 min drive away. Quimper is also worth a visit
