The artist Gauguin came to Pont-Aven in the 1880s to paint before leaving for Tahiti. The stamp of gifted artistry is present without being pervasive or dominant and lends a deep sense of identity to the lovely small estuary town.
There are many beautiful beaches, particular favourites include Pointe De Trévignon, Tahiti Beach and Port Manech. All are very beautiful, but never crowded and mostly safe for bathing.
Nearby is the town of Concarneau with the Ville Close, a small, highly fortified 13th century citadelle on a rocky island in the bay. Concarneau has a good aquarium, sailing schools and a pleasant seafront and promenade, with a lovely atmosphere, often staging live open air music, and theatre. There is also an excellent selection of shops and restaurants.
The Pointe du Raz, known as the Land’s End of both Finistere and France, has been designated a “Grande Site Nationale” It is dramatic and well worth a visit, especially the deep fissures which fill and drain with a deafening surf-roar.
