‘Fun, Sun and Sein’ Breton adventure

From Audierne to Île de Sein, sail away for the day 
IdeallyWith family
Led byRené


  • Aboard the Atlantis, the official ends-of-the-earth sailboat
  • The sea stretching as far as the eye can see!
  • Sightseein’ in Sein!



What if, this summer, the ends of the earth were within sight? What if all you had to do was step off the beaten track for a day away from it all, with Finistère’s beautiful cliffs as your backdrop (or not far away)? Agnès and René have specially prepared an eco-friendly getaway on the water and what a way to start! Setting sail from Audierne, the little harbour shimmering behind its lush-green hillsides, all climb aboard the Atlantis and head west. In the company of the bracing breeze, currents and lighthouses steeped in history, sail past the Pointe du Raz headland, admiring its rustic beauty framed by the waves. After two-and-a-half hours, drop anchor at Sein, an atmospheric, windswept land where the seabirds dance in flight around the colourful houses… You won’t want to leave!

Your Breton expert


What’s it like going to the ends of the earth several times a year?

Penn ar bed, in Breton, means both the end and the beginning of the earth. It’s where everything begins. Île de Sein is like a precious jewel on the horizon; your gaze sweeps over the omnipresent ocean. You can feel a yearning for a longer-distance voyage, right across the Atlantic… one day maybe!


Why did you call your boat Atlantis?

It’s a name that straightaway conjures up the sea. In Greek mythology, Atlantis was the island of Poseidon, god of the sea. So our aim is to capture our passengers’ imaginations, sparking a sense of wonder through unique experiences on board.


Are you more of an island or mainland person?

I’m based in Audierne, in Cap-Sizun. After a family cruise around the Ponant islands on a sailboat, including fabulous stopovers – an unforgettable trip – this is a home base it’s always a pleasure to come back to!
