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.

Beautiful, peaceful rural retreat

5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday break at Pluguffan. The gite was great; comfortable (cool inside in the very hot weather) and generally well equipped. The private pool was a lovely extra. South Finistère was beautiful with plenty to see from pretty costal towns, medieval Quimper, fabulous beaches and some great surf for teenagers and costal walks. We enjoyed the many festivals that occurred whilst we were there and would have visited more sights if we hadn’t been distracted by the tranquility of the gite!! Elodie and Olivier were perfect hosts - thank you for all your advice on things to see and do and for the delicious welcome pack that greeted us on our arrival. Our 2 teenagers loved the kitten, all your livestock and the deer we saw roaming the fields at dusk. We will return!!

Good Value

4 of 5
Not the best equipped or cleanest but it was not a lot of money and a great base to discover Locronan. A quiet location within 2 minutes walk of the town and a good garden for the kids to play in. Off road parking for 2 cars. Helpful owners next door.
