Cultural capital of Brittany, a town of art and history, Quimper, just 20 km from our hotel in Pouldreuzic, is immensely charming and features many interesting landmarks. While wandering around this ancient episcopal city, surrounded by ramparts, among the medieval buildings and wooden houses, you will be transported several centuries back in time. Discover the region's history at the Palais des Evêques, Saint-Corentin Cathedral, Place Terre au Duc, and the old Locmaria quarter, and discover other exciting places such as the Art Museum.
Save a day to visit Pont-l'Abbé, truly one of Finistère's pearls, with the Barons du Pont castle, which now houses the Bigouden museum, where you can soak up Breton folklore among historic furniture and traditional costumes,. But Pont-l'Abbé also features one of only nine inhabited bridges in France, comprising a few apartments, a biscuit-maker and the embroiderer Le Minor. At lunchtime, retreat to the Saint-Laurent woods, near the marina, for an enjoyable picnic beneath the pine trees, and continue your walk along the old tow-path, among the tide mills.
To the west of Cornouaille, in the heart of the Audierne Bay region, lies Pouldreuzic, where our hotel restaurant can be found, surrounded by the Penhors coastline. In addition to a wide range of tourist accommodations, the town boasts 4 museums, including the Musée de l'Amiral, devoted to the region's fauna and flora. The heritage exhibition is a reflection of the bygone Breton agricultural community, and presents a reconstruction of the town's businesses at the turn of the 20th century. In addition to the Maison du Pâté Hénaff, next to the factory of the same name, you can visit the house where the writer Pierre Jakez Hélias was born.
