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.

Weather in Douarnenez, France

The weather in this part of France can be compared with that of the Cornwall area of the UK, although slightly warmer, and with slightly bluer skies! Day time temperatures during the summer months average out in the low-twenties degrees Celsius and rainfall is minimal at less than 50mm per month. July and August are both the driest and the warmest months. During the winter, the temperatures can drop to as low as freezing, but more normally average at 9 degrees. A holiday in Douarnenez can be taken at any time of year, but the summer is by far the most popular.

Travel to Douarnenez, France

The two travel choices when considering booking a holiday rental cottage in Douarnenez are to drive or to fly. If you choose to drive, then you will most likely land at the port in Roscoff, where it is a short drive to the self catering accommodation in Douarnenez. For flights, you will most likely land at Brest (BES) airport, where Flybe connect with Birmingham (BHX) and Manchester (MAN). There are also seasonal Ryanair flights available. Unfortunately, national carriers do not connect this airport with the UK.

And really close to the beach too - close enough to walk back in your towel :-) Jaqueline was very helpful, and did a great job of looking after us. I highly recommend it.

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.
