Brittany - The Finistère

Venture with us across the sea to explore Brittany with its mixture of spectacular coastline, historic towns, rambling countryside, colourful culture, rich traditions and delicious food.  We will be staying in the charming town of Concarneau with its beautiful beach, historic walled town and picturesque harbour and from this base we’ll head off exploring.

Friday – Day 1

We make an early afternoon departure as we head to Plymouth ferry terminal where we join the 23:00 hrs overnight ferry crossing with Brittany Ferries to Roscoff.  We will stop en-route for an included 2 course evening meal.  Overnight you will be accommodated in inside large 2 berth cabins with en-suite facilities. (4 berth cabins are available for larger parties if required).


Saturday – Day 2

Arriving in Roscoff at 08:00 hrs we drive the short distance into Roscoff town centre where you will have free time to enjoy this pretty harbour town. We will then stopping off at Ergue-Gaberic cider farm where we will have a visit around the farm along with tasting before continuing to the Hotel de l'Ocean in Concarneau our base for 5 nights.


Sunday – Day 3

We make our way to the seaside resort of Benodet, from where will embark on a circular river cruise lasting just over two hours, along the beautiful Odet river, “the most beautiful river in France”. Our journey will take us past wooded landscapes, numerous castles, manor houses and forgotten creeks and our guided commentary will tell us all about the attractions along the route.  After our cruise, we will make our way to Quimper, the cultural heart of Brittany.  The city’s crowning glory is its gothic cathedral, which dominates the atmospheric old town in which there is no shortage of half-timbered 14th century houses. Then we head to the stunning village of Locronan, named after a revered Irishman who settled here in the Dark Ages but its legacy stems from its later trade as a centre for sail-making which brought it prosperity and exceptional architecture. The village is full of history and has many little boutiques to explore.

Monday – Day 4

Today you have a free day to relax and explore the old town of Concarneau. There is a wonderful beach opposite the hotel and the historic walled town can be reached on foot or via the tourist train. The town offers visitors with quaint streets, shops and pavement cafes.

Tuesday - Day 5
 
We visit the Walled town of Vannes, which is without doubt one of the most attractive towns of the area with its well preserved medical streets and harbour.  In the afternoon we go to the seaside resort of Carnac famed for its ancient standing stones.

About Our Tours

We have been operating tours and mini breaks around the U.K. and abroad for a number of years, and by far the most popular innovation that we have introduced in recent years, is to offer a virtually door to door service. Picking up as near as practically possible to your home in Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire means you don’t have to worry about getting your luggage to the coach, and avoids the additional cost of having to use taxis.

By using our small fleet of mini-buses, we are able to keep the pick-up time to a minimum and get you on your tour coach and on your way as soon as possible. This way your holiday starts on the first morning. Once your holiday is over we will collect you again from the coach park and return you home.
