Soak up the charms of the beach

Around Coté Ô Port Manec'h
A town of painters set in the heart of old windmill country, famous Pont-Aven charms anyone who sets foot in it. This is where Paul Gaugin found his voice.
The village boasts a fine arts museum, artist workshop, art galleries and beginners art courses open to the public.
Pont-Aven waffles with their rich, buttery flavour are a must try. In Summer visit the Traou Mad cookie factory, founded in 1920.
Concarneau, the Blue Town
A large port town, Concarneau and its impressive Ville Close is a jewel in the Cornouaille crown. The town has preserved its medieval charm, becoming Brittany’s fourth stronghold when it was fortified in the 14th century.
The Ville Close houses a Fishing Museum that tells of the maritime traditions of Concarneau and retraces the history of fishing around the world.
An essential part of Concarneau heritage, the Festival des Filets Bleus (blue fishing nets) is not to be missed.
Quimper, the capital of Cornouaille
Quimper is proud of its status as “town of Celtic art and history”. The streets and squares are lined with medieval buildings that highlight the Odet river running through the town.
On certain days, Quimper slips on its old robes, especially when the Cornouaille Festival comes to town.
Nestled in the side of a heavily forested mountain, Locronan is a delightful town of bluish-grey granite stone. To get a feel for the soul of the place simply wander at your own pace through the streets lined with artisan stalls. A favourite spot for film-makers, Locronan owes its architectural beauty to the hemp industry that was the source of its prosperity from the 15th century.
The Glénan Archipelago
The Glénan Archipelago is made up of around a dozen islands reminiscent of Polynesia. With its see-through emerald waters, it boasts the kind of tropical colours and lagoons that dreams are made of.
The islands of Penfret and St Nicolas are must-sees. See the flowering of the Glénan narcissus in April.
Ile de Groix
The wild and majestic coast of Groix features rugged slopes that plunge into the sea with its pretty little coves. As you walk the scrub and hawthorn lined coastal paths of the island of Groix, you’ll come across different washing fountains dotted along the way.
Do you like pretty stones?
Don’t forget to visit the villages of Kerascoët and Kercanic.
Here you’ll find granite stone houses with thatched roofs, relics of old architectural traditions.
This beautiful, carefully preserved cultural heritage reveals itself to you as you go about your walk.
