    Pont-Aven – a town famous for its role in the Rebellion of the Red Bonnets against Louis XIV in 1675 – is one of the more popular holiday rental destinations in the Quimper area of Brittany, France. It is a much loved destination by artists due to its associations with Post-Impressionist painters, but families will also find plenty to keep them entertained during the daytimes, before they return to the comforts of their Pont-Aven holiday rental cottage or apartment.

    Things to do in Pont-Aven, France

    If art is not really your thing there are still attractions to be had in Pont-Aven. The town is the home of some good quality restaurants, including a popular one which is housed in an old mill.

The town is within close reach of a number of other interesting towns and villages, and the coast can be reached in just twenty minutes when travelling by car.
