Concarneau and Quimper

Le Gal Yannick - CRTB You will begin the discovery of this region with cultural visits. Head for the towns of Concarneau and then Quimper. In one of the most beautiful bays in Brittany, you will discover Concarneau and its 14th century fortifications. You can stroll on the walkways and in the alleys but also stroll on the quays of the port and on its sandy beaches. Savor your quiet walks in October: Concarneau is one of the most visited sites in Brittany in summer ... Going up north inland, you will stop at Quimper. The half-timbered and cantilevered houses of old Quimper will charm you, without a doubt! From Kereon Street, you will see the imposing Gothic cathedral. You can also discover the Locmaria district, the cradle of Breton pottery.

A breathtaking site, Pointe du Raz

Boelle Yvon - CRTB In the far west, the Pointe du Raz, classified as a "Great national site", offers you an incredible point of view. It is an impressive landscape that these steep rocks sculpted by the sea and the wind, that this lighthouse on the islet of La Vieille in front of this point rising to 70 meters in height, that this multitude of swirling sea birds … You will be able to contemplate this site with such a wild character thanks to the marked and secure path along the cliffs.

The delicious Breton cuisine on your plate

Restaurant L'Auberge des Glazicks The air of Brittany, it appetites. You will certainly already fill your little cracks by tasting the typical Breton "butter cake" or "Kouign-Amann" and savoring some salted butter caramels ... But to discover the wonderful Breton gastronomy, you will have no other choice than going to Plomodiern, to the Auberge des Glazicks, whose chef, Olivier Bellin, was awarded the star for the second time. With a very personal cuisine, this local child handles with finesse, subtlety and creativity, buckwheat, lobster and scallops. Refined and local cuisine that will make your taste buds sing!

Nature and legends…

Torset Pierre - CRTB At the foot of the Auberge des Glazicks, Mont Menez-Hom rises to 330 meters above sea level. From the easily accessible summit of this ancient volcano, you will have a panorama of the entire region. This ancient sacred mountain, today a protected natural site, was a strategic point for monitoring all the surroundings and is steeped in stories and legends of Cornwall…

Unreal landscape in the Monts d'Arrée

Boelle Yvon - CRTB Going north-east, you will end your journey in the heart of Brittany, with the discovery of a surprising landscape: the Monts d'Arrée.
