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.

Fab, contemporary apartment with beautiful sea views

5 of 5
On arrival, we were met by the caretaker who showed us around this lovely apartment. It has plenty of space, is very well equipped and we felt completely at home. The proximity to the beach is ideal and there is a lovely walk along the coast. The nearby restaurant, Le Grand Bleu, is great for just a coffee but also has delicious food! We enjoyed a lovely short stay and wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you.

Part of a beautifully restored farm in tranquil countryside

5 of 5
Stewart and Tricia are the friendly helpful owners. They have achieved a beautiful restoration to make a comfortable gite. Large garden adjoining. WiFi and satellite available. Wood burner. Five minutes drive to Plomodiern and its well stocked Intermarche store and good restaurant near the church. Some of the best beaches in Brittany within 20 minutes by car. Outstanding coastline and walking easy to reach. Sorry to leave, hope to stay here again.
