Activities, Surroundings

Between land and sea, the country of Quimperlé offers you a multiple choice of activities for your holidays.

Land ocean, Moëlan sur Mer, is very proud of its 3 picturesque ports nestled at the bottom of its rias, which live to the rhythm of the tides. Discover them on a paddleboard or kayak... Sail on a sparkling shades of blues and greens that are quite surprising. Take advantage of the sports offered by the ocean, surfing, windsurfing...or relax on the sand facing the ocean on the various beaches: Kerfany les Pins, Trenez, le Pouldu...In the distance, you will see the Groix island, with remarkable natural sites or the Glénan archipelago, the Breton Caribbean, an invitation to contemplation and idleness.

Let's leave the sea for walks on the coastal paths and the mythical GR34 which offers you its most beautiful landscapes. Possibilities of walks on horseback, or by bike (greenways) in the neighboring forests (Domanial forest of Clohars-Carnoët).

Discover the historical heritage of the region, its chapels, its menhirs and its dolmens, its museums (museum of Pont-Aven and its paintings, fishing museum in Concarneau, Quimper and its museum of fine arts, the Henri Henriot earthenware factories)…

And of course, a few kilometers away, the surrounding towns, also rich in their history:

Quimperlé, historic town, at the confluence of three rivers.

Pont-Aven nestled in the estuary of the Aven which owes its notoriety to the school of painters of which Gauguin was the master,

  • Concarneau and its famous walled city, fortified city built in the 15th and 16th century.

  • Quimper and its Gothic cathedral, the construction of which began in 1239.

To the south, the neighboring department of Morbihan with Lorient and its city of sailing, a tribute to the great navigator that was Eric Tabarly.
