Ile de SEIN

The Ile de SEIN is an island in BRITTANY located in the southeast Celtic Sea and 7.2 km west of the Pointe du RAZ, on the other side of the Raz de Sein.
It is barely at sea level and is often flooded. All houses are near the port to withstand the elements:

  • The narrow streets criss-cross each other to offset the wind and spray.
  • The island spans 2 kilometers and forms a backwards S with a strangled central portion that is barely 50 meters wide.
  • The Great Lighthouse of the Island (Goulenez) is located on the far western end.
  • This carless island is accessible to all.

Crozon Peninsula near Douarnenez Campsite

Crozon Peninsula

The Crozon Peninsula – which is named for its largest town, Crozon – is located on the far west side of Brittany, in the center of the Finistère and its jagged, cross-shaped coast, forming the backbone of the trident in which the Breton peninsula ends. It is surrounded by the sea on three sides: to the north by the Roadstead of Brest, to the west by the Iroise Sea, and to the south by the Bay of Douarnenez. To the east, at the entrance to the peninsula, there is the Ménez Hom, a mountain at the end of the Black Mountains chain. Surrounded by the sea, the peninsula is known for its rich landscape and other natural sites: the Cap de la Chèvre, the Pointe de Pen-Hir, the Pointe du Toulinguet, the Pointe des Espagnols, Dinan Castle, the Roscanvel Peninsula and the Aber de Crozon are among the most famous.
The peninsula is of great strategic importance, as can be seen by its rich architectural heritage and strong military presence. A trip to the Crozon Peninsula is a very popular thing to do in Brittany.

Le Guilvinec

Le Guilvinec is the top artisanal French fishing port in value caught on French ships. It is the biggest maritime district in France for fishing both in terms of number of sailors (around 1000 sailors) and in terms of value of fish caught, 17.5% of all French fishing.
Haliotika – the fishing village – is where you can watch the trawlers come in, visit the fish market, and try Norway lobster.

GR34 near South Brittany Campsite

GR34

This hiking trail passes through the beautiful landscapes of Brittany and especially through the Finistère.
Some sections follow old customs paths that were abandoned in the first part of the 20th century. The GR34 was fully opened in 2008. The first section was marked in 1968 between Beg Leguer and Pors Mabo.
The GR34 is so long that it is very difficult to do all at once, unless you want to trek for several months. Most people do small sections at a time over a couple of days depending on how long they are available. There is an excellent section between Douarnenez and the Pointe du Raz.

Audierne

A little Breton port with streets full of history, this fishing town is located on the Goyen estuary at the foot of a wooded hill. Mostly spiny lobster, lobster and a particular species of spider crab that has developed on the coast of the bay of Douarnenez are fished here.
