4. Freeze frame by the sea
A few kilometres south of Brest, there is a little port tucked away in a pretty little corner of the bay: Daoulas. In this incredibly charming medieval town built on the water, you’ll move from island to island. You’ll love the bucolic alleys, the path of its small streams and the beauty of its stone houses. From April, discover the town and its treasures thanks to the Balades Photographiques (Photographic Strolls): they will take you to the abbey’s listed gardens, where an exhibition on world cultures takes place every year. Daoulas also has a group of creators (painters, ceramists, etc.), who are active all year round, a Sunday market, a Natura 2000 bay, and not far from there, in Logonna-Daoulas, a very lovely hut in the summer months… For dining, you can’t go wrong with the Faïencerie, serving local and bistronomic food. It’s a proper gem!
- Where to sleep: We love La Maison Chicorée with its swimming pool, large park and access to the river.
- With a few extra hours: make the most of the ideal position at the gateway to the bay for long walks along the trail and a whole host of water sports – how about a SUP outing on the Mignonne, to start with?
