The Owner Recommends

Pont Aven

Pont-Aven is best known for its association with the post-Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin. This attractive little village also has some lovely riverside walks, a mouth-watering food speciality, a weekly market and a colourful summer festival.

At the ocean’s edge, the landscape is soft and gentle – with a touch of the exotic. That’s why the beach at Raguenez has been dubbedTahiti by the locals. The nickname was inspired by the turquoise water and its expanse of fine white sand. Rospico cove is more typical of the area, with a sandy beach protected by rocky cliffs. It’s like a blue, white and green cocoon – perfect for a spot of rest and relaxation. At Port Manech, the bathing huts will make you think of the Belle Epoque era.

Concarneau

The ville close is without doubt Concarneau’s most popular tourist attraction. This old stone fortified ‘town’ has just a few narrow streets filled with shops and restaurants, where geraniums tumble from window boxes. Take a walk around the ramparts for spectacular views over the area. Near the entrance to the ville close is the Musée de la Pêche, where visitors can learn all about the fishing industry and visit an old trawler.

Quimper

Not only is Quimper the administrative capital of the Finistère department, it is also generally regarded as the cultural heart of Brittany. The town is known for its cathedral, atmospheric old quarter and museums but most of all for its annual festival celebrating Breton culture.
Quimper’s most impressive building is its cathedral, which is said to be the best example of Gothic religious architecture in Brittany. Building started in the 12th century and continued at intervals until the 19th century, when the two spires were constructed and new stained glass windows were installed. The cathedral is named after St Corentin, Quimper’s first bishop.

Beaches

The little peninsula of Névez lies in a beautiful spot between Pont-Aven and Concarneau. In this pretty corner of southern Finistère you’ll find some stunning examples of houses built from pillars of stone, beautiful beaches, enchanting inlets and harbours nestling deep in submerged river valleys (rias). It’s easy to reach, but it’s like a different world!
