The Glénan archipelago makes for a great day trip (departing from Bénodet Port). In total, there are nine islands (including a main island, Saint Nicolas, where you can stop off) around an inland sea with transparent waters, idyllic landscapes and white-sand beaches. The Glénan Islands are world-famous for their beaches and unspoilt wild landscapes, their water sports centre and their international diving centre. They are a must-see if you’re on holiday in southern Brittany.
The River Odet is known as the “most beautiful river in France”. Discover wooded landscapes teeming with birds (egrets and grey herons) by a waterside dotted with characterful châteaus and manor houses where Emile Zola and Jean De La Fontaine took inspiration for their works. You can also stop off in Quimper (the capital of Cornouaille) depending on the tidal coefficient. Explore Cornouaille’s natural and maritime heritage.
