About Jeremy Charlton
We live in England in rural Shropshire. Our only dependents at present are a Springer Spaniel and a Cocker Spaniel! We have two grown up children. We have spent our holidays in Tremorvezen since buying the property in 1998, so we have enjoyed holidays over the years with young children, our parents and on our own and there is always something for everyone! It has become a second home to us and we are friends with many of the locals.
Jeremy Charlton purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Jeremy Charlton chose
We had spent some time in this area on holidays, fell in love with it and decided to buy a property there. When our children were young the local beach which is safe and sandy and popular with families was perfect, and as they grew older they took to windsurfing and sailing courses, again very locally. We love to walk along the coastal footpath and stop for a bite of lunch or just a drink somewhere. We also like to visit the local markets as well as going a bit further afield such as Concarneau which has a huge market in the summer, and the indoor fish market in Quimper is quite a sight.
What makes this Cottage unique
We enjoy a short 10 minute walk down a grassy path to the fabulous sandy beach, but if you have children with lots of things to carry there is parking to take the car. There is everything you need within a 3 mile radius, from shops, markets and restaurants, so it is possible to cycle to get bread in the morning if you wish! But if you like to explore further afield there are countless beautiful and interesting places to explore both inland and on the coast, from the standing stones at Carnac to the artists galleries in Pont Aven.

Rustic and relaxing
We have just returned from a fortnight in this little gem of a place in fabulous location.
The house is ‘as it says on the tin’ - basic but perfectly adequate with very comfortable beds and a great shower!
We went as a family of 6 (including 2 grandchildren aged 7 and 2) and it suited us brilliantly. Situated in lovely hamlet next to an historic chapel and opposite a creperie it felt peaceful but not isolated and the ten-minute walk to local beach was the icing on the cake. Neighbours were extremely friendly and helpful especially when we had a slight problem with plumbing. This was the only hiccup and the owner was easily contactable to get this resolved.
The whole area and beaches are beautiful, the weather was great, and the croissants in nearby Nevez to die for!
We would love to return.
A wonderful retreat from city life....
This was our 3rd stay in the house at Tremorvezan and we would love to return again!
The house is described as 'no frills' and 'basic' but we have always found it perfect as a holiday home - the beds are comfortable, there is plenty of hot water, the shower is excellent and the house has a lovely feel to it. In the morning the sun is at the front of the property and in the afternoon streams into the bedrooms. It is very light.
The location is peaceful and calm and yet it is only a 10 minute cycle to Nevez for croissants every morning..........and a pleasant 10 minute stroll to the beach. We particularly enjoy walking down to the beach as the sun is setting, the area is quite magical at this time. You can also join the coastal path very easily and walk to Rospico, Port
Manech and the l'ile de Raguenez. We had a very enjoyable stay in the house - thank you!
An excellent holiday base
The house at Tremorzeven was just perfect for an ideal holiday in this wonderful corner of south west Bretagne. The basics were absolutely spot on - excellent location between hundreds of superb beaches, walks, market towns, places of interest - plus it provided all comforts and equipment necessary to make a home from home in a quiet, relaxing surrounding. Thank you to the owners. We really did enjoy ourselves here, and it met all our needs as a family of four.
Schönes Häuschen im Grünen, wundervoller Strand
Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen - als Familie mit Kind bietet das Haus genügend Platz und der Garten lädt zum entspannen ein. Die hübsche Kapelle in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft bietet immer eine schöne Aussicht. Es ist eine sehr ruhige Lage, was uns super gefallen hat. Der wunderschöne Strand ist gut zu Fuß erreichbar, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind nur 5 min mit dem Auto entfernt. Das Haus hat uns gut gefallen, es ist hübsch und persönlich eingerichtet. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und bei Fragen und Problemen immer ansprechbar und hilfsbereit. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen! :-)
A 10 minute walk to the beach. There is parking if you wish to drive to the beach.
We prefer the Plymouth Roscoff ferry route and it is one and a half/two hours from Roscoff to the house. Alternatively other ferry ports include St Malo, Cherbourg or Caen. The nearest airport for flights from UK is Brest, one hour by car, and Nantes, two hours by car.
Nearest town to the house is Nevez at 3 km, Pont Aven about 6km and the nearest large town is Concarneau, about 12km. and Quimper 25km where there is a train station.
There are plenty of places to visit within easy reach. We like Pont Aven for window shopping, artists studios and galleries, and the restaurants. In the summer there is always a large market along the port. Other favourites are Trevignon point where there are cafes and where it is possible to buy fresh fish landed daily. Concarneau has a large fishing port and marina plus the 'ville clos' (old walled town) and huge Friday market! (and excellent daily indoor market). There is an organic market every Wednesday morning at Tregunc (15 minutes drive). There are a range of places and beaches to visit, too many realistically to mention but to name a few, we would suggest Benodet, Pont L'Abbe, and Lorient and Quiberon. There are an abundance of good local restaurants including the very local Michelin starred Ar men du at Raguenez, less than 2 miles away and many specialise in seafood and Breton cuisine. If you want to stay local, Nevez has everything you need, including 2 bakers, fishmonger, large Intermarche and small market on Saturday.
