Make a self catering villa in Quimper, Brittany your home away from home

Quimper is a charming port town in Brittany. Situated on the Odet and Steir rivers, its history goes back to the 5th century arrival of the legendary King Gradlon from Cornwall, England. Like so many towns and villages in the area, Quimper has old French architecture with beautiful features on the houses and town buildings. Known for its pottery, particularly its collectible Quimper Malicorne, these lovely pieces make great souvenir gifts.

Things to do in Quimper, France

A stroll around this medieval town will unearth many treasures – a coffee shop which serves divine hot chocolate, a patisserie and a local restaurant or two for excellent dining. The half-timbered buildings and the Halles St-Francis are delightful. This market hall has wonderful views through the upturned boat rafters and sells mainly local produce. Visit the fine Musée des Beaux-Arts museum, and the wonderfully cultural Breton museum.

The enormous Gothic Cathedral, Cathedrale St-Corentin, with its amazing spires, was started in the 13th century and was named after the 5th century St Corentin. The nave is slightly angled, apparently to avoid the swampy edge of the river! It is the most complete neo-Gothic cathedral in Brittany.

The area around your Quimper property is known for its tin-glazed earthenware, called faïence, which has been made here since 1690. Painted with folk designs, the local museum has pieces depicting scenes from World War 1, the first car accident and the death of Zola. It is on sale on almost every street corner in Quimper and new pieces are offered in modern gift shops.

There are festivals and celebrations all over Brittany during the summer months. The Great Festival of Cornouaille is held each July in Quimper and many historic Breton national costumes are displayed during the celebrations.

Places to visit near Quimper, France

One of Europe’s largest aquariums, Oceanopolis is located in Brest. This Ocean Discovery Park makes a great day out for all the family and is just 71km (44miles) from your Quimper self catering property.

Although the town of Brest was rebuilt after a long siege during World War 2, the Rade de Brest, or natural harbour played a historic role during the war. Today it is the base of the French Atlantic Fleet with a huge dry dock.

Just 83km north from your holiday property in Quimper is the delightful harbour town of Morlaix. The scenic road takes a little longer, but is a lovely journey through the rural farmland of the area. The cobbled streets were once protected by a castle and walls which are now in ruins. The pink granite railway viaduct makes a pretty picture with the yachts in the harbour. There is a convent museum and a church is this town, which is full of local French history.

Lovely cottage!

5 of 5
The cottage is situated in a quiet hamlet with a garden over looking fields; it's very idyllic. The kitchen is well equipped and the cottage is very clean. It's an excellent location with easy access to Quimper and other coastal resorts. Agnes was extremely helpful through out our stay - and met us with a warm welcome.

Delightful welcome from our charming and attentive host. Tasteful , comfortable accommodation with lots of entertaining music, literature and design magazines. The weather was a bit 'iffy' but we were never bored with so many fascinating churches and art galleries close by .[ We recommend a visit to the Gaugin museum in Le Pouldhu ....a 'touchy feely' experience without the looming presence of guardiens.] Quimper [15 minutes on foot /free parking after 5.00p.m ] is a marvellous unspoilt town with its historic centre largely pedestrianised and filled with good shops and restaurants. Vive la France et Vive la Bretagne. Maggie and John [Fortescue, Devon.]
