There is a small road in front of the property which is mainly used by local fishermen to go to the slipway and the beach of sand and rocks is just 10 metres away. The area is famous for its 'garriguette' variety of strawberries which can be enjoyed at the An Ty Coz crêperie (100m) along with delicious galettes and crêpes.
