The best destinations in Brittany for a sea view

The Breton coasts are really magnificent, don’t you think? So why not take advantage of it as soon as you wake up? This is possible with the Charme Bretagne club, which offers seasonal rentals of gîtes and guest houses on the water’s edge. You don’t need a car to find yourself on the sand, just go there with your beach bag and sunglasses on your nose! We give you the addresses to be able to enjoy these magical views and the places to visit nearby.

Perros Guirec and surroundings


The famous Pink Granite Coast and its town Ploumanac’h, voted “Favourite Village of the French” a few years ago. It’s not for nothing! This place, which looks like something out of a film studio, has everything to amaze you. Rocks as far as the eye can see, with their distinctive hues and crooked shapes. For a walk, we recommend the customs officers’ path from Pors Rolland. In our opinion, this is the place where the rock is the most spectacular. Continue your journey to the Men Ruz lighthouse, which you will surely recognise because it is proudly displayed on most postcards of the region!

Roscoff and surroundings


If you want to discover Finistère, you can’t miss the charming port town of Roscoff. The stone city centre is well worth a visit! You can visit its exotic and botanical garden, the artisanal seaweed cannery or the island of Batz which is only 15 minutes by boat from there. We advise you to hike to the Sainte Barbe Chapel where the view of Roscoff is the prettiest!

Le Conquet


We continue in Finistère, but this time in Le Conquet. Its estuary, its protrusion from the sea inland, is not to be missed. This landscape changes radically depending on the tides but is always mesmerizing. We advise you to take a walk on the Kermorvan peninsula, off the port, which you can reach at low tide with the many fishermen on foot. For a breathtaking view, we advise you to go as far as the Pointe Saint Mathieu or the Kermorvan lighthouse!

Belle île


What can we say about Belle île except that it lives up to its name? The perfect destination for a relaxing and exotic stay. You can enjoy its fine sandy beaches, its coves for postcard-worthy photos, its charming little ports to enjoy a drink on the terrace or the 80 kilometres of the GR340 to discover it by bike or on foot.

In the vicinity of Quimper


Audierne, Plovan, Bénodet or Concarneau: here are some towns near Quimper that we advise you to visit! Audierne for its seaside resort and the Pointe du Raz not far from there, Plovan for its famous chapel of Languidou, Bénodet for a zen and gourmet interlude and Concarneau for its walled city.
