Brittany is one of the oldest regions of France and combines the wonders of the sea (Pointe du Raz, La Torche) with quaint towns (Locronan - the granite city, Quimper the half-timbered town, Concarneau- the walled city, Point l'Abbe), ancient megaliths (Menez Dregan, our local menhir not 5 minutes' walk) and vibrant music and costume traditions (Festival de Cornouaille, Fetes des Brodeuses, Fest Noz, celtic music fests, international folk music). It has inspired artists since the 1800s (Gaughin's artist colony in Pont Aven for example) and local artists still show their wares in local markets and studios. Brittany is famous for its freshest of seafoods, its artichokes, strawberries and dairy products, all available at local markets or the market hall in Quimper. The beaches of Finistere are endless and offer international surfing challenges (La Torche surfing paradise). Choose your hobby, be it sports or shopping, or choose to chill in our hammocks overlooking the lush meadows that surround the farmstead.
Landudec offers a nature trail, a wonderful cash-and-carry market, a local galette maker, restaurants and a gorgeous castle specializing in staging marriages.
Not far is a stunning archeological site which has unearthed the oldest hearth remains in continental Europe. Menhirs and dolmens abound. In summer, every local town stages its live music fest, Fest Noz, to dance along with. Quimper offers endless shopping (including Armor Lux outlet) and local markets offer everything from local produce to art.
