Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Concarneau, France your home away from home

Concarneau is a hugely popular beach resort in Finistere, Brittany, famous for its amazing medieval walled town. The old town is one of the most photographed attractions in Brittany, and really has to be seen to be believed. There is still a real sense of history in Concarneau, France, and as France’s third largest fishing town, the seafood is simply unbeatable.

Things to do in Concarneau, France

The old city of Concarneau, Ville Close, is a very compact, highly fortified island just offshore from the modern city. The Ville Close is a huge attraction in Brittany, attracting many visitors daily, especially during the summer months. Although the tiny fortified island can become a little crowded during the middle of the day, taking a holiday rental in Concarneau allows you to visit in the morning or evening, enjoying the treasures of the compact, twisting streets almost completely to yourself. The rose and clematis adorned walls of the city give it a wonderfully natural, timeless feel that cannot fail to endear visitors, especially if you take the time to relax in one of the fantastic restaurants of crêperies available.

Those wishing to get a further insight into the lifestyles and history of Concarneau, France must visit the Musee de la Peche just inside the walls of the Ville Close. Concarneau is France’s third most important fishing port in France, and the Musee de la Peche illuminates the history, culture and methods of whale, tuna and herring fishing. The early morning fish auction is excellent fun, regardless of if you manage to make any sense of the practice and find yourself a bargain! If you are lucky enough to find self catering Concarneau accommodation in mid-August, the wonderfully lively fisherman’s festival, La Fête des Filets Bleus is excellent fun, with Breton music filling the air and the fantastic smells of seafood filling your nostrils.

There are a huge range of boat trips and excursions available from the bay, which are especially popular when the Concarneau weather is good. Fishing is of course an excellent choice of day trip, and trips to the archipelago of Iles des Glenan are wonderfully peaceful. There are many excellent walks to be done through the large seabird sanctuaries, as well as many picturesque little beaches on which to relax and swim. There is an excellent sailing school in the Iles des Glenan, offering boat hire and lessons to every level of sailor (in English).

Just down the road from a Concarneau villa is the charming town of Quimper. Famous for its beautiful twin-spired cathedral, Quimper is actually the oldest town in Brittany and is filled with treasures from throughout the history of Brittany. There is nowhere more relaxing and endearing to sit and have a coffee, sitting beside a gurgling stream, on a timeless, cobbled street in the sun.

Concarneau’s weather is wonderfully mild throughout the year. In summer, you can sail, swim or simply sightsee with a mouth watering Breton ice cream in temperatures usually reaching upwards of the 30˚C mark. Winters remain mild, with daily temperatures averaging around 5˚C in January.

Travel to Concarneau, France

Brittany is wonderfully easy to reach from the UK. There are a huge range of car ferries arriving on the coast of Brittany from the south coast of England.

Town had many restaurants and bars as well as a number of places of interest such as Ville Clos. Comfortable, well equipped apartment . Owners welcoming and helpful.
