What to do in
Quimper isn’t only the gateway to southern Brittany, it is also one of its most beautiful treasures. Its half-timbered houses, its bridges over the Odet and the Steir, its squares and cobbled alleyways, its bagads (pipe and drum bands) and its pure-butter crêperies show that the Queen of Cornouaille is ready for the future while remaining proud of its past. This respect for history and traditions is also found in the neighbouring towns: Concarneau, Pont-Aven, Vannes and Bénodet…
A region for nature loversSee more See less
You know what they say: first impressions are often the best. So get your holiday in Brittany off to a fantastic start by exploring Quimper. The town is spilling over with authentic Breton charm. The old town guarantees love at first sight, with the twin spires of the Cathedral of Saint Corentin, and the mediaeval houses on rue Kéréon or the Place au Beurre. Nobody can resist Quimper’s charms, not even children, who will love discovering the town, especially if the walk ends with a delicious sugar crêpe or a bombard and biniou (bagpipe) concert in the street.
This first happy experience of Brittany will leave you wanting more. Hire a car for your family, and meander along the roads of Finistère and Morbihan, filling your memory with beautiful scenery and lovely memories: the landscapes of Pont-Aven that inspired Gauguin and many other painters, the untamed beauty of the Quiberon Peninsula, the jagged cliffs of the Pointe du Raz, the Gothic Revival architecture of the Château de Keriolet in Concarneau, and of course the mystery of the Carnac megaliths…

What is the best time of year to visit Quimper?
Pay no attention to what they say about the Breton climate. It is pleasant in summer, as the crowds at the Vieilles Charrues Festival, the Interceltique Festival or the Festival de Cornouaille will tell you. The last week in August is a fantastic time to visit southern Brittany. As the peak holiday season draws to an end, the towns and villages of Finistère and the Gulf of Morbihan are quieter. However, even though the days are already getting shorter, the light is particularly beautiful at this time of year and right up until the first weeks of autumn. The best time to visit Quimper and the surrounding area is the second half of spring. The roads are still quiet, the days are getting longer and warmer, and nature is resplendent and blooming. Even if you get some drizzle (a local speciality, just like crêpes and the biniou), just tell yourself that a little rain never hurt anyone!
