Make a holiday rental home or cottage in Audierne, France your home away from home

A commune in the Finistere department of department of Brittany, Audierne is a fishing village that has developed into one of north-west France’s most beautiful yacht ports. Village life is centred on the waterfront, with many cafes, bars, food shops and restaurants in which to enjoy the local cuisine. Holiday rental accommodation can be found in Audierne in the form of traditional French cottages and holiday homes that offer panoramic views of the sea.

Things to do in Audierne, France

The main shopping, eating and dining area is the stretch along the harbour, with a number of bars, shops, cafes and restaurants to choose from. Also on this popular and busy stretch is the tourism office, which has become accustomed to the increasing number of visitors to the Audierne, and can offer plenty of ideas those seeking a more active break.

Saturday morning sees the weekly farmers market, where you can meet the locals, brush up on your French, and buy some fresh and delicious produce to take back with you to your self-catering accommodation. The last remaining fishery in the town has now been transformed into an oyster farm, where you can sample some of these local delicacies, and take some back to cook with, if you so wish.

The majority of visitors to Audierne take short day trip across the water to the Ile de Sein, a tiny island 8km away that almost solely relies on the fishing industry to feed its 500 residents. Here there is a small beach, a museum and a restaurant, but many people go just to walk the 2km length of the island and take in the views.

Owner very helpful despite our language barrier, I really need to learn French! Would highly recommend this house for a great Holiday base, great walks can be found to have a beer with a view or a great cycle ride.

The house was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable, relaxed holiday. It is bright and airy with plenty of outdoor space. The owner had left information about local shops and restaurants which was very useful. Audierne is a pretty little coastal town with lots to see and do nearby. We had a fabulous two weeks staying at this property and would recommend it highly.
