Cornwall capital - art and historical city

The city has an absolute charm thanks to its alleys with half-timbered houses, its flowery footbridges on the Odet, its museums with rich collections, its famous butter place gathering the best creperies. Visit the St Corentin Cathedral : jewel of Breton Gothic art with its deviated nave, its magnificent restored stained glass windows, the statue of Gradlon connecting Quimper to the legend of the city of Ys... Quimper religious capital with the building of the former bishopric where we find today the Breton departmental museum. Of course not to be missed our historic district of Locmaria, a real jewel for our Ginkgo hotel.

CONCARNEAU and its closed city

The walled city and its ramparts is one of the most visited sites in Brittany.

In summer it is advisable to go there in the morning because its narrow streets can be quickly crowded.  Two small bridges open the gates of the walls.  On the sides, cobbled alleys escape to openings overlooking the fishing port with 200 boats that animate the quays and the auction. Don’t forget to visit the fishing museum at the entrance of the extremely rich enclosed city through the collection of maritime heritage.

To deepen the visit, look at the different fishing techniques (trawling, tuna, sardines, etc.) and climb aboard L'Hémérica, an authentic 34 m trawler, moored at the museum wharf. Must see! To visit with family because there are animation workshops for children

PONT AVEN - City of painters

This small town is famous because of the school of painters who had Gauguin as master. Strolling along the estuary, crossing the footbridges, it is easy to imagine the artists fascinated by the poetry of the landscapes and the brightness of the small port. Don’t forget to stroll along the Aven on Xavier Grall’s promenade with its flowery footbridges. Stop at the Musée de Pont Aven or in the many painting galleries and why not come back with the famous galettes of Pont Aven!

To continue this walk continue to the Pouldu in the town of Clohars Carnoët (29360) to visit the house museum of Pouldu with the reconstitution of the inn of Marie Henry where Paul Gauguin and his friends painters Sérusier, Filiger and De Haan took board from 1889.



LOCRONAN  - Small city of character

One of the most beautiful villages in France. Discover the beautiful medieval houses that radiate around the beautiful central square and its well. In the 11th century Saint Ronan christianizes the place and gives birth to the city. The one now called Locronan gained in wealth and beauty from the 14th century, thanks to the weaving of sailcloth. It is pleasant to walk through the cobbled streets to admire the authentic architecture of this historic place and to discover its artisan shops. Parking at the entrance of the village is charged but this is necessary to preserve the site that serves as a backdrop for many films. The Christmas period is particularly magical because the Christmas market fills the historic heart. To see without hesitation.
