The Isthmus of Penthièvre forms the entrance of the Quiberon peninsula, it is the only speck of land that connects the Quiberon to the continent. It is an attractive place to walk around: on one side, the calm, peaceful and restful bay of Quiberon and on the other side, the Atlantic Ocean as far as the eye can see.
And it is there, at the edge of the Peninsula that is located Kerhostin and our houses, between the Ocean and the Bay, with an immediate access to all the beaches for the happiness of the families. Moreover, you will find numerous activities within few minutes’ walk away from the house: sand yacht Zefattitud and Les passagers du vent, kite surf, surf and paddle among others swimming and angling.
