Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Douarnenez, France, Your Home Away From Home

Situated in a well sheltered bay, Douarnenez is a coastal town in Brittany, rich in maritime history. Once home to a huge fishing fleet, dozens of canneries made this town their base. As time has moved on, and catches are down, the town has developed into a living heritage site based upon the fishing industry, as well as a summer tourist resort. There are a range of accommodation options on offer here, but the best way to feel a part of the town is to take a holiday rental cottage in Douarnenez. You will feel as though you have stepped into a home-away-from-home from the moment you arrive, and it makes the perfect base from which to explore this part of Brittany.

Things to Do on Holiday in Douarnenez, France

Lovers of water sports will be particularly thrilled with the amount of activities it is possible to try whilst on holiday in Douarnenez. Take your pick from water skiing, sailing, windsurfing and many more besides. If you prefer to keep dry, then look inland for horseback riding, cycling and golf. The immediate area also has many nature trails that you can wander along.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Douarnenez, France

Your self catering accommodation in Douarnenez is positioned almost halfway between the large towns of Brest and Quimper. Each one is worth at least a half day trip, whether it is to visit the marina at Brest, or admire the cathedral at Quimper. If you have access to a car, then it is also recommended that you travel farther afield. Try the megalithic stones of Carnac, or Le Mont St Michel monastery which are both worth a day spent at each.

The area is great for beach days and adventures further afield. Really worth a visit. If there has to be a down side it would be that the beds are abit uncomfortable and there aren't enough pillows and the ones there are worn. Also needs some fans for the bedrooms which got extremely hot... Specially the loft rooms. Also in need of a pack showing things to do in the area, good restaurants etc and where to put recycling etc.

Perfect evening stroll almost literally from front door along coast path. Great base for coastal walking on Crozon peninsula and out towards Pointe du Van. Excellent fresh fish and shellfish from fish shop at Douarnenez port. Plenty of places nearby to eat out.

It was perfect for our party, which was sailing in the Temps Fete, a festival of the sea held every two years. It is on a quite busy street but well set back from the road, behind a wall and in a large garden, so not at all noisy, and is within walking distance of the town centre...but it is at the top of the hill so an uphill walk to get back. It has garage space for one car, and room to park in the street outside. The house has sea views from the upper landing windows, and is about a 20-minute walk from the harbour. There is a large hypermarket on the edge of town (Intermarche) a couple of kilometres away plus many smaller shops in town, including a grocery across the road and a boulangerie about five-minute walk for those vital breakfast croissants and baguettes. We enjoyed a couple of local restaurants, one called Quai 29 I think, on the quayside in Rosmeur Harbour. There are plenty of others in the town, including a lot of creperies. The house was clean and well maintained (though a couple of lightbulbs needed replacing and we could not find a supply in the house). Nathalie the owner, who lives in Paris, was a delight to deal with, answered any queries promptly and speaks excellent English (though the local contact does not) and we all enjoyed the stay very much. We would certainly go back if we go to the sailing festival again. Thank you Nathalie for a lovely stay.
