Quimper and the Breton Riviera

Quimper's town center

Heritage, culture, relaxation and bathing, for holidays full of discovery!

Quimper et la riviera

Quimper, city of culture and history, is a multi-faceted destination. It boasts well-preserved architecture such as Saint-Corentin Cathedral and the colourful timbered houses, a dynamic craft tradition that includes the Faïence of Henriot and the Pascal Jaouen Embroidery School, and of course its major festivals (Cornouaille and Circonova), making it a truly unmissable city in Finistère.

Locronan, "Small Town of Great Character", is another unmissable destination, especially for history-lovers.

If you’re more fond of leisurely outings, the Breton Riviera including Bénodet, Fouesnant-les-Glénan, La Forêt-Fouesnant is ideal, with its generous sandy beaches.

For food-lovers, be sure to try the local Cider A.O.P. Cornouaille!
