Quiet enough to feel away from it all, but with the convenience of restaurants, local shops, and plenty to do on your doorstep. This is the ideal base for those who are looking for an unspoilt and stunning stretch of coast, exquisite beaches, and an area rich in authenticity. The Cap Sizun is an area of protected coastline that boasts a spectacular coastal footpath, high rocky cliffs, the area is host to some of the most beautiful beaches in the area, with wide open beaches that feel the full force of the Atlantic waves and small sheltered sandy bays great for kids and water sports. The Baie de Trepasses at the end of the peninsula, often features on the lists of the worlds top 10 beaches, and the beaches of St Tugen and Theolen are undiscovered treasures. The nearby Pointe du Raz and the bird reserve of Goulien are two of France’s leading tourist attractions, yet the area remains remarkably undeveloped and has escaped the pitfalls of mass tourism. For cycling the area has a network of small quiet roads and there is a cycle path that leads from the Anse du Loch and goes to the Pointe du Raz, this is part of the veloroute No 5 which stretches along quiet small roads all the way to Loctudy. Audierne just 6km away is a bustling marine port with a lively market, gourmet restaurants, an aquarium and is the departure point for the Ferry to the Isle de Sein. Douarnenez is an authentic fishing port and also has a very interesting maritime museum where the exhibits are ‘live’ in that you are free to explore the old fishing boats still on the water – they often have trips out to sea on kayaks and different vessels. Nearby Pont Croix is a small medieval city with the french label ‘petite cite de caractere’. Further afield lies the beautiful medieval town of Quimper, and the endless possibilities that Finistere has to offer.
