The Brittany / Finistere region
The house is about 4k from the village of Gouesnach which has a localshop. Gouesnach has strong links with its twin town of Eyrecourt in the Republic of Ireland, and there is an annual festival – Fête Celto-Irlandais held in the village on the first weekend of August. The property is 8k from Quimper, a beautiful cultural town with half timbered buildings and flower-covered footbridges criss-crossing the river. There are excellent shops in Quimper, a wide choice of restaurants and the indoor market (Les Halles Saint François) is great for buying local produce and specialities.
It is about 12k to the chic resort of Bénodet with its white sandy beaches and interesting maritime heritage and about 12k from Fouesnant which has a large indoor water park, Les Balnéides, and a Friday morning market The area is reputed for its cider production, and is a good place to visit the cider orchards and try some samples. The house is about 20k from Concarneau famous for its ville close or walled city, and there are boat trips up the River Odet between Quimper and Bénodet. There are many activities available nearby including water sports, canoeing, diving, tennis, horse riding and golf. This is a good area for cycling and many of the roads have cycle lanes.
The Quimper area
Quimper is the obvious choice as the historic and economic capital of the part of Brittany known as Cornouaille. It lies at the confluence of the rivers Steir and Odet, which run through the town that is the administrative capital of Finistere. It has a handsome cathedral and narrow lanes, with perfectly preserved half-timbered houses. But it is not merely a repository of history. It has many high-tech industries and an important food-processing industry, and is known for its local pottery, which continues to delight visitors.
