The GR34, with its 200 km of coastal footpaths, from Douarnenez to Sainte Marine, is an invitation to discover breath taking scenery.

And of course the fishing ports of Guilvinec, Audierne, Douarnenez or the towns of Quimper, Pont-L'Abbé, Pont-Aven, the city of painters where Paul Gauguin lived (the museum will reopen in 2016), Locronan, classed among the "Most Beautiful Villages in France", where many craftspeople are based.
