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.

Well located , interior is stylish if basic. Everything you need.

4 of 5
The owner Ronan was friendly and very helpful and lives next door. The property doesn’t look much from the outside but the interior is well done and it was perfectly comfortable. Great base for cycling and walking. There are cafes and restaurants around the harbour, about 25 mins walk, but in October they weren’t open all week. We walked across the fields to a French/ Italian restaurant at St Philbert, with good food and a very reasonable price.( La Grappa). Decent modern Casino Hyper at Tregunc and also a Lidl, as well as tourist information. There is a cycling Green Route from Concarneau to Roscoff on an old rail track, the Nantes Brest canal tow path is also really good and lightly used. Regarding the house, furniture is minimal but there are comfortable settees and an effective wood burner (plus electric heaters if needed). Stairs need care as open treads and no handrail. Everything worked but you can only get WiFi on the patio as the router is in the property next door. Not a big issue for us. In summary a good choice of location and property and reasonable value.

Very nice place

5 of 5
Very happy to have chosen this house to stay in. Very clean and in a quiet location. Nice to have the decks to sit in the sun, and lots of equipment for cooking etc. Only thing we needed was our own sheets etc for the bed. Owner was very nice and happy to help.
