Nearby is the Isle de Sein accessible by ferry from Audierne.
Beyond the Pointe du Raz, right at the end of the world lies the Ile de Sein, a point of serenity “as flat as a pancake” among the wild treacherous reefs of the Chaussée de Sein which is surmounted by the Ar-Men lighthouse. Its unique island culture, timeless atmosphere and gastronomic delights make it a wonderful place to visit.
The Ile de Sein ferry leaves from Sainte Evette harbour at the end of Audierne beach for a journey of an hour across the reefs and promontories which border the Mer d’Iroise.
The Sémaphore de Lervilly Signal Station is followed by the intense colours of Saint Tugen beach and the Anse du Loc’h, between the villages of Primelin and Plogoff. Next comes a succession of coves : Porz Loubous, Feunteun Aod then Bestrée alternating with the headlands of Plogoff, Feuteun Aod and finally the Pointe du Raz.
The amazing panorama is absolutely stunning as the ferry moves into the Raz du Sein gradually revealing the Pointe du Raz, la Vieille, la Plate, Tevennec lighthouses and la Pointe du Van. In the middle of La Chaussée de Sein, guillemots, gannets or dolphins sometimes appear and accompany the ship as far as Men Brial pier on the Ile de Sein.
Most towns and some villages have a weekly market. These include Concarneau, Douarnenez, Pont Aven and Crozon. Perfect for sampling local produce or buying souvenirs of your holiday.
Quimper is about 45 minutes drive. There is a lovely cathedral and plenty of shopping and restaurants around the cobbled squares.
Pont Aven is a 1 hour drive. This is the « artists town » where Paul Guegin studied and painted.
Concarneau is a pretty walled town, well worth a visit. About 1 hour from Fisherman’s Cottage.
