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.

Places to visit on holiday in Pont-Aven, France

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

With no international airport in Brittany, many visitors heading to Pont-Aven from the United Kingdom elect to travel by way of ferry, usually from Plymouth, Poole or Portsmouth. 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.

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.

This home was so comfortable, spacious, and warm...an important feature in December/January (the rain and wind is as fierce as on the Washington coast where we live!) And the fireplace in the living room provided not only heat, but a nice winter ambiance as well. We were met by the local managers at 9pm (in the dark) who presented us with a sumptuous welcome package composed of milk, juice, bread, wine!, sweet biscuits, jam, the famous Breton Crepes, butter, and much more that I can't remember at the moment. The beds were very comfortable, towels plentiful, soaps and washing liquids for the washing machine and dishes provided. The shower in our bedroom downstairs was wonderful with a rainshower head.....plentiful hot water even with 5 adults taking showers all within a couple of hours in the morning! The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed and there are 2 small fridges; one with a small freezer. I can imagine this home during the summer when we could make full use of the sun room and the gardens and take walks along the lane. For those of you who like to shop, Quimper is fantastic...especially the week between Christmas and New Year's when the sales are between 25 and 60% off! I purchased a French designer purse for 40% off! It was clear next time we must bring an extra suitcase. For a local culinary treat, be sure to eat at La Krampouzerie in Quimper. Both the savory and the sweet crepes were delicious. Walking the streets of the ramparts in Concarneau is like taking a trip back in time and the pizza at Lobely's was great. If you have time, be sure to make the trip to Mont St Michel in Normandy, and also Omaha Beach and St Mere Eglise...(2 days minimum) such history and the French are consummate caretakers of our part in the history of both world wars and forever thank us for our part in liberating France. Thank you David and Lucy for sharing your lovely home.....we will return!
