Pont-Aven Holiday Homes

Make a holiday rental home or cottage in Pont-Aven, France your home away from home. Pont-Aven, France

Pont-Aven – a town famous for its role in the Rebellion of the Red Bonnets against Louis XIV in 1675 – is one of the more popular holiday rental destinations in the Quimper area of Brittany, France. It is a much loved destination by artists due to its associations with Post-Impressionist painters, but families will also find plenty to keep them entertained during the daytimes, before they return to the comforts of their Pont-Aven holiday rental cottage or apartment.

Things to do in Pont-Aven, France

Pont-Aven has long held a history as an artist’s haven, and once had strong links with famous French Post-Impressionist artists that include Paul Ganguin. This history is still in evidence today, as there are a number of art galleries to be enjoyed around the town. This includes both commercial galleries as well as the main public gallery.

If art is not really your thing there are still attractions to be had in Pont-Aven. The town is the home of some good quality restaurants, including a popular one which is housed in an old mill. Shops, cafés and bars are also in good supply, and with a couple of decent-sized supermarkets the self-caterer is well looked after in Pont-Aven.

The main draw of Pont-Aven, however, is often its location. The town is within close reach of a number of other interesting towns and villages, and the coast can be reached in just twenty minutes when travelling by car. The sandy stretches found at the coast are great for families, and a number of water sports options are usually available depending on your beach of choice.

Quimper (34km) is the principal city in the region, and most visitors to Pont-Aven like to spend at least a day in this old city which is best known for its twin-spire cathedral. There are many other towns and villages worth visiting though, with just two suggestions being Pont-Aven's neighbouring destination of Riec-sur-Belon (5km) and the fashionable seaside resort of Benodet (33km).

Weather in Pont-Aven, France

As it is not a million miles away from the south coast of England, the weather in Pont-Aven and the surrounding area can often be quite similar. Typically this means warm to hot summers, and cold, often wet winters. Spring and autumn are slightly warmer than the UK, so can also make for good holiday weather in Pont-Aven.

Travel to Pont-Aven, France

Those intent on flying may be able to get a connecting flight from Paris Orly (ORY) to Quimper Airport (UIP), and will then need to make the 38km journey from Quimper to Pont-Aven by car.

The view is exceptional, even on dull days! Access to GR34 is at the gate to the property, a walk in either direction either along the coast or river is very worthwhile, with beautiful scenery. The small town of Pouldu is a short walk away, ideal for bread etc. We stayed for a very enjoyable week, would definitely recommend this property and location for visiting Brittany.

We have stayed in Concarneau before so we already knew how nice the town and beach are but this house made this break much better then any other. 5 of us stayed in total (mum, dad and 3 children age 8, 6 and 4). The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The Children loved the house especially the garden. The outside area was great for them to play and and discover things to do. The outside BBQ was ideal and provided our dinner for most nights. We never got bored hanging around the house. We used the two bedrooms with three beds for the kids in the second bedroom, we all fitted in perfectly. These is one bathroom upstairs and the second toilet downstairs was very useful as we stayed around the house most days. The town centre, supermarket and beach were only a short drive away. The internet connection was not the most reliable but the owner was quick to try and fix this. The owner was friendly and helped made our stay very relaxing. Our family loves Concarneau and we love this house. We will be back again.
