The spirit of the place

Put down your luggage and breathe in the air at Le Cocon du Matelot, a perfect port of call for reviving and relaxing! Near the beaches, the  village of Saint Briac has held onto its fisherman’s personality whilst moving with the times to become a secret seaside resort. Countless sea-farers have grown up here, and the surroundings have inspired great artists.

Once a fisherman’s cottage, Le Cocon du Matelot (meaning ‘the sailor’s cocoon’) is bursting with character thanks to the eclectic taste of its owners. Accommodating up to 4 guests, this tiny granite-built home has an enclosed garden filled with hydrangeas, and you’re sure to love the original beams and timber flooring, as well as the thoughtful, tasteful décor. To set you up for a fine holiday, your hosts offer you a complimentary breakfast featuring local and organic treats, ensuring that you’ll feel right at home.

From your sailor’s shelter, you can head off on the Emerald Coast, up to the seaside town of Dinard, the iconic ramparts of Saint-Malo, the fishing ports of Cancale or follow the coast that leads you to no end of inspiring destinations, so you can unwind, while away the days and end your holiday feeling refreshed.

Herlzliche Dank für den tollen Empfang. Das Haus ist mit viel Liebe eingerichtet und wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt. Mit den Fahrrädern haben wir ausgedehnte Touren gemacht und dabei viel gesehen. In einer Woche kann man das vielfältige Angebot nur steigen, darum werden wir sicherlich noch einmal wiederkommen. Der Urlaub war ein kurzer Genuß, bleibt aber lange in Erinnerung. Dagmar und Peter Allemagne

Nous avons passé une formidable semaine dans le Cocon du Matelot qui porte si bien son nom et qu’on ne peut quitter qu’avec regrets. Nous en avons apprécié chaque facette: une situation idéale à quelques pas des commerces bien sympathiques de Saint-Briac, un décor chaleureux et de très bon goût et de multiples attentions dissimulées dans les bonbonnières et des bouteilles! Un grand merci à Chantal et Sandrine. Laureline, Jean-Tristan et Eléanor France
