The many excellent restaurants around the Peninsular are naturally wonderful for their fish. Our guest book and guide books will detail more specific information and, of course, the Tourist Office in Crozon has lots of information. I do send out a local map and brochure prior to their holiday. We now have wifi which can be accessed throughout the house. Our rates are fully inclusive.
Location description from owner
The Brittany region
The Crozon Peninsula
Here the dramatic Atlantic coast is at its most spectacular. This beautiful Peninsula, which is part of the protected National Parks of France, is truly untouched by commercialism. It is a paradise for those who enjoy uncrowded wide sandy beaches, hidden coves, water sports of every variety, spectacular cliff top walks, quaint fishing villages, fresh sea food, and is all self contained on this peaceful Peninsula – and not a parking meter in sight!
So much to see and do, here are a few suggestions:
Take a boat trip which goes from the quayside along the beautiful reaches of the Rade of Brest which is part of the National Parks of France. You will see the superb modern architecture of the new suspension bridge Pont de Terenez.
Visit the famous Abbaye Saint Guenole de Landevennec and museum. The Abbey which is still home to Monks dates back to the 5th Century www.abbaye-landevennec.cef.fr
Walk along the beautiful allotted paths from the village, or have a game of tennis on the village court. (arrange in the Mairie’s office.)
The village has a small restaurant, creperie and Tourist Office (in the peak season) and general food shop.
The market square of this pretty historic town is surrounded by little shops and an interesting church, it also has a small market every day and once a week a much larger one. There are several supermarkets, doctors (who speak English) and a small hospital, vets and a Tourist Office.
There are wonderful views from the cliff tops on the edge of town.
Children will enjoy the adventure park in Crozon (from tree top trapezes , mini golf, paintballing etc.) www.breizhpark.com
There are many hire shops with all water sports gear.
A centre for canoeing and kayaking on the D791 from Le Faou.
The famous annual Festival of Music Bout du Monde is held in August
A lovely seaside resort with large boat harbour, plenty of good seafood restaurants.
A swimming pool with water chute. Wide sandy beach.
A quaint fishing village, popular with artists. Many galleries (in the narrow back streets) and many good restaurants. There is a sandy beach to the west of the seafront.
Visit Cap de la Chevre and Point des Espagnols for the most spectacular views of the sea crashing on the rocks.
You will be delighted to visit this picturesque village, with its cobbled streets and quaint old houses. Some delicious Breton delicacies in the little shops.
A little further afield by about 1 hour:
Oceanopolis is a must – the largest indoor aquarium in Europe. This can be reached by boat from Le Fret (20 mins from the house) Be careful to check the return times of the ferry.
A beautiful historic Cathedral town. The river Odet flows through the center. A wealth of shops and boutiques.
Various festivals are held in Quimper.
A little further still:
Pont Aven – a very pretty place, famous for the artists who have lived and painted there – Paul Gauguin being one of them.
A lively historic City. Visit the old town entered through an arch in the surrounding city walls. Lots of little interesting shops in the narrow streets.
Pointe du Raz
A most spectacular viewpoint especially on a wild day to watch the raging seas around this most dangerous stretch of water.
Exhausted!! – you can now relax in the garden, have a bottle of wine and barbeque and gaze at the sea.
There are many places of interest to visit, for example Oceanopolis in Brest, a vast aquatic centre, pretty villages such as Locronan and historic towns such as Quimper. Landevennec itself is very pretty, peaceful and has a small shop. There is lots of sailing from the quayside. The famous Abbey in Landevennec makes an interesting visit. Brest has museums and many shops and Oceanopolis is a huge marine aquarium.
