Make a holiday villa, gite or cottage in Finistere, Brittany, France your home away from home

Finistere is the most westerly department of France, and is located in the Brittany region, strutting out into the Atlantic. Finistere has 750 miles of coastline to enjoy with thousands of inlets, bays and islands. Finistere means ‘land’s end’ in Breton, and can be considered the French equivalent of Land’s End across the Channel.

Places to holiday in Finistere, France

The largest settlement in Finistere is the city of Brest. Destroyed almost entirely during the raids of WW II, Brest had to be largely re-build. However, some of the original city remains, including the 15th Century Castle and La Place Guerin, haunt of many poets, musicians and writers.

A holiday to a Finistere holiday rental cottage or gite would not be complete without a boat trip to the famous Ile d’Ouessant. The island makes up part of the Armorique Nature Reserve, and is a fantastic trip for cyclists and nature lovers.

There are many great towns and villages in Finistre where ancient stones, historic architecture and magnificent Finistere villas can be seen, including the destinations of Audierne, Quimper and Crozon.

Many of the sporting facilities focus on the sea.

Walking and cycling through palm groves, cliff tops or inland to the medieval, mythical forest of Merlin the Magician.

Amazing cottage in breathtaking surroundings! Superb!

5 of 5
The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed! The host is very welcoming and although we didn't speak french, she was so accommodating and friendly! The area is beautiful with beaches and little gems everywhere. We'll definitely go back! Thank you making our first trip to France so memorable.

Beautifully sited apartment

5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely apartment. The apartment is very comfortable and tastefully furnished. The views from the living area and the bedroom are fabulous with balcony seating on both levels. The beaches are great in Le Pouldu and there are a number of coastal walks from the property. The owner is charming. We would certainly like a return visit. Thank you.
