The Brittany region
Finistere in Brittany is France's equivalent of Land's End and is one of Brittany's most popular natural sites. Finistère is the westernmost region of France (excluding the overseas departments in North and South America and the Antillas). By several criteria, Finistère can also claim to be the most coastal department in Metropolitan France. Of its 283 communes, 118 are located on the coast. Its total coastline of approximately 1,250 km (776.71 mi) accounts for almost a quarter of the entire Brittany coast-line
You want to have a relaxing holiday in a beautiful place; perhaps you want to ensure the children have fun; then come here; from the South; ferries via Southampton and Portsmouth then an hour's drive; an hour from the airport by car at Brest with cheap airline flights from the North to the same.
The region of Finistere in Brittany or Bretagne or little Britain is the most beautiful; rugged coastline views, the end of the earth, the pointe du Raz, beaches and sand and woodland with major towns in Quimper, Brest and Rennes.
You'll notice a high number of lighthouses, beacons and signal lights around the Finistère coast and with good reason: because of the sharp rocks, reefs, countless islands and a high volume of maritime traffic.
There are currently 29 lighthouses (11 on land and 18 either on islands or in the sea) protecting the coast.
From north to south, here's an overview of some great points to discover:
- La Pointe de Primel (Plougasnou) : This point is one of nature's sentinels, a strategic point from Viking times, formed by an unusual pile of lovely reddish rocks. Approach it from the path for an enchanting view, and to the west, you'll see the entrance to the gorgeous Diben Port.
- La Pointe Pontusval (Brignogan) : This picture-postcard landscape is adored by photographers, with masses of rocks polished by the sea, a beautiful beach of fine, white sand and a charming "maison-phare" with a slate roof
- La Pointe de Corsen (Plouarzel) : The furthest west of Finistère's coastal points and at 31 metres high, this marks the theoretical frontier between the English Channel and the Atlantic and gives a fantastic view over the Chenal du Four. Not far from here is the Trézien Lighthouse, remarkable for the fact that it's placed inland about a kilometre from the shore. Climb the 180 steps for an amazing view…
- La Pointe Saint Mathieu (Plougonvelin) : Once seen, never forgotten. here, you have a majestic white and red lighthouse placed right next to the stunning remains of an abbey, creating a truly breath-taking view, especially approached from the coastla path with its views to Molène and Ouessant islands.
- La Pointe de Pen-Hir (Camaret-sur-Mer) : Said to be the most beautiful of the four rocky outcrops of the Crozon Peninsula, Pen-hir has cliffs that drop 70m to the sea. The panorama and view to Tas de Pois is breath-taking especially in clear weather when you can see the pointe du Raz on your left and Saint-Mathieu to your right.
- Le Cap de la chèvre (Crozon) : This impressive spur protects Douarnenez Bay and has the higest cliffs in Finistère (93m) puncutated by sea caves known as grottes marines. The turquoise waters and hidden creeks here make it a fascinating place to visit.
Take a look at the 'Château de Dinan', not a castle at all but a granite formation that looks like the arch and entrance to a ruined castle.
- La Pointe du Millier (Beuzec-cap-sizun) : This point marks the entry to Douarnenez Bay. There's a lovely lighthouse keeper's cottage perched on the cliff tops which is unusually built in typical Breton style.
- La Pointe du Van (Cléden-Cap-Sizun) et la Pointe du Raz (Plogoff) : These two very famous coastal points are the arms around the Baie des Trépassés, well-known surf spot and dangerous for currents - its very name means 'the bay of the departed'. Beaten by the sea and the relentless winds, the two points and the bay are grouped as one of France's 'Grand Sites' and you have to experience them to understand their renown.
While Pointe du Van (65m), is dominated by Chapelle Saint-They and has a varied vegetationthe Pointe du Raz is more rocky and wild with sharp cliffs plunging to raging waters. Here, you have a fantastic view over to the Raz de Sein and the famous lighthouse Ar Men, the furthest from any French coast and one whose construction took an incredible 34 years.
The GR34 coastal path that traces the Finistère coast connects these two coastal opints and give you a compelling walk - remember to take your camera!
- La Pointe de La Torche (Plomeur): A surfer's paradise... this coastal point with its long beach exposed to swells is a mecca for surfers and also for walkers who love the bracing sea air.
A little further, on the pointe de Saint-Pierre in Penmarc'h, you can't fail to notice the lighthouse known as Phare d'Eckmühl built to warn of the dangers of hidden reefs. The old lighthouse - the same model as that on the Ile de Batz - and the semaphore are built in alignment.
The Festival de Cornouaille, which takes place in Quimper, is a celebration of Breton music and traditions. One of the highlights of summer in Finistère is the "Festival des Vieilles Charrues" held in Carhaix-Plouguer. Major international stars attract tens of thousands of spectators. This festival is the largest music festival in France, attracting more than 200,000 festival-goers every year (270,000 in 2011.
You'll find traces of famous painters and writers here, but you'll also find live music, folk festivals and many a Fest Noz, which is a loveable and lively village fête with sea shanties, barbecues and late-night dancing.
Quimper which is a large Cathedral city is about 20 minutes away - Audienne a lovely seaside town about 20 mins the other way but there are plenty of supermarkets/towns/ beaches in between. There is a small onsite shop and a good sized supermarket within a 2/3 minutes drive from the site. Bordered by the English Channel and the Atlantic, Finistère is defined by its relationship with the sea.
For millions of years, rolling waves and the occasional dramatic storms have shaped the jagged coastlines, creating a unique and wild beauty, while the Gulf Stream brings its own soft caress.
From north to south, Finistère's coastline has a thousand faces - long, sandy beaches, plunging cliffs, undulating dunes and rounded pebbles. From the vast landscapes of Les Abers to the tiny creeks, the quaint bustling ports to the otherworldliness of its islands, Finistère's coastline always offers something new.
Finistère has some utterly captivating sand dunes, fragile environments at the mercy of the wind and the sea but home to some wonderful flora and fauna. Look out for subtle differences in the plants and wildlife you might spot in the different dunes you pass: blue thistles, orchids, snails and seabirds...

"Fantastic site + lovely pitch"
Just returned from Camping Bel Air with husband and kids aged 11 & 7, fantastic campsite, beautifully manicured with so much to do for kids. I would recommend this site and rental, although the caravan is an older model, it was clean, extremely well-equipped and in a great spot which meant it was sunny during the day but cool at night. It was a great value rental, and the owner was very easy to deal with. Would definitely book again.
