We loved staying in this lovely little cottage next door to the owners who were friendly and generous but not intrusive. From here, we explored all the corners of the Finistère région of Brittany. It was a lot of driving. It would be a more...More

About the neighbourhood
Finistere is loved for its mild climate, unspoilt beaches, its traditional Breton culture and breath taking scenery, making it an ideal holiday destination for families and experienced travellers alike. Day Trips - Château de Trévarez which overlooks Châteauneuf-du-Faou. Oceanopolis in Brest, rated one of the best aquaria in the world, is a great family day out 50 minutes away. Nature lovers staying in Châteauneuf-du-Faou are spoilt for choice for day trips. The magnificently natural Ile d'Ouessant, forms part of the Armorique Nature Reserve which encompasses many of the smaller islands off the Finistere coast. The interior of Finistere also claims some beautiful locations. There are many circular walks in the area around Châteauneuf-du-Faou, during which you will almost certainly stumble across one of the amazing pre-historic sites which adorn the region. The medieval town of Quimper has ancient buildings, including its imposing cathedral, modern shops and a variety of art galleries and museums. Beaches - if you head west to the beaches of the Baie de Douarnenez, from Crozon round to Douarnenez, or south to Benodet, Beg Meil, Concarneau or Pont l'Abbe, there is plenty on offer to keep you entertained. The nearest is Pentrez Plage with a 2.5 kilometre flat sandy beach plus shops and cafes. The Sunday Times ranked Pentrez Plage in their top 20 beach holidays in Europe: “If it's rock pools, foaming surf and acres of white sand you ache for, then point yourself towards Brittany. One of the prize spots is Pentrez Plage, on the huge, sweeping Baie de Douarnenez — the kind of beach where you can kick footballs, hunt for crabs and fly kites. Backed by high cliffs pockmarked with caves, Pentrez has safe shallows for tots, as well as high-adrenaline sports such as sand-yachting and speed-sailing.” We recommend eating at the creperie at St Come, just 800 metres from the beach, where there are over 580 (!) varieties of galette to choose from.
Getting around
