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.

Clean, modern, lovely relaxing views.

5 of 5
The view could be enjoyed sitting in bed or from comfy chairs. Very well equipped apartment. Everything done to a high standard. Great outside space too. Only downside is the sloping ceiling in the double bedroom which means you have to negotiate yourself around the bed. (Also the extractor over the induction hob is too low and has sharp edges; I have the scars to prove it!) The owner very helpful and had thought of everything. Would certainly recommend this place.

Friendly owner. Well equipped wooden house. Just one problem - needed four soft seats on one area - maybe two two seater settees. Great to be so near a beach.
