A mere 200m from Cabellou lies the start of a series of white sandy beaches interspersed with rocks and promontories: an ideal location for those seeking a beach holiday in this fascinating corner of Brittany, where atmospheric towns and villages are an attractive backdrop to the creeks and beaches of of this stunning coastline.  From the beach, exploration is a must to discover the rock pools, the fort and more sandy beaches that edge this smart residential peninsula close to Concarneau (6km).

Cabellou sits in fenced grounds and offers spacious accommodation.  Patio doors from the living/dining room slide open to allow access onto the terrace and heated pool (ideal for when the young ones tire of the beach and sea). 

Two of the bedrooms have private balconies on the first floor, whilst a further two have the unusual feature whereby the window, when opened, forms a small balcony!   Large groups also have the benefit of access to the annexe with its additional kitchen, shower room and bedroom.     

Not only does Cabellou have a beach in close proximity, there is also a bar/restaurant in walking distance (750m), where you can enjoy local dishes with a view over one of the inlets and sandy beach.  Concarneau itself is worth discovering, with its ‘ville close’ (the walled old town) and port, from where you can take a boat trip to visit the ‘Iles de Glénan’, or the Breton Tahiti as they are also known!   

With plenty to see and do on the doorstep, there may be no need to go further afield. But if you have time, head to Quimper (31km) to take in the half-timbered buildings and cobbled streets, its Gothic cathedral and the Musée des Beaux-Arts.

Parties paying the Small Party Rates will not have access to the annexe accommodation.

Great Things to Do Near Cabellou

Pamper yourself...

Treat yourself to a massage or beauty treatment (or both!) at Concarneau's spa and well-being centre which specialises in thalassotherapy (seawater therapy).

Head to Pont-Aven

Made famous by Paul Gauguin and his group of painters, Pont-Aven is firmly embedded in France's art scene, and its small town centre is jam-packed with art galleries and antique shops. Fun to browse, or you may even find a perfect gift or reminder of your holiday! Turn off the main street at the bridge to enjoy a walk along the river Aven, or join a boat trip from the quay.

Teeing off

Keen golfers will want to head to the 18-hole par 71 course at the 'Golf de Quimper-Cornouaille' in La Forêt Fouesnant.

Splashing about

Take the kids for a splash about at the ‘Aquasud Pays Bigouden’ in Pont-l'Abbé, an indoor water park with 25m swimming pool, play pool heated to 30°, baby paddling pool at 32°, and a 58m water slide!

Family day out

Take the family to the 'Labyrinthe de Pont-Aven' which is open for the summer holidays. Families can enjoy the maize maze, the mini farm, playground, a picnic area, trampolines and mini tractors. A fantastic fun filled day for both adults and children!

All at sea

A variety of water sports are on offer in Concarneau including surfing, sailing, kayaking and stand-up paddle. You can also hire sailing boats or motor boats from the harbour.

Monkeying about

Tackle a high ropes course through the treetops at the Adrenature park in the forest just outside of Melgven (about 12km away). You'll have to navigate rope swings, zip wires and various obstacles, the highest being 35m above the ground, but there is also a very easy course suitable for 3-5 year olds.

Coastal walks

Brittany's coastal path is open to the public along its whole length, offering some superb views out to sea and of the varied shoreline of bays, headlands, and inlets with little harbours.

No holiday in Brittany is complete without...

a meal in a local crêperie. You won't have to go far to find one - they're everywhere! First choose a 'galette' (a savoury filled crêpe made with buckwheat flour) then follow it up with a sweet crêpe - anything from a simple beurre citron to a highly indulgent option laced with caramel or smothered in cream!

Cruise round the Glénan Isles

Boat trips depart from the port of Bénodet to the Iles de Glénan. This archipelago of seven main islands boasts fine sandy beaches and clear lagoon-like waters. Plenty of opportunity for walking and birdwatching, as well as kayaking or diving for the more energetic.

Stroll to the beach

Meander down to the beach for a morning swim, or a day exploring the rockpools and building sandcastles, or perhaps for a drink in the evening at the beachside bar.

Explore Concarneau

Enjoy a wander around the old walled town of Concarneau, the Ville Close, which changed hands numerous times over the centuries due to its enviable location. Nowadays there are lots of little boutiques and places to stop for refreshment! Watch the boats come and go in the harbour, or take a leisurely ride on the Petit Train.

Calling fish and seafood lovers

Enjoy a top class meal in one of Concarneau's excellent fish and seafood restaurants.

Experience the local market

The local market is a great place to pick up fresh produce and local specialities, and to mingle with locals who are doing the same. The main weekly market in Concarneau is held on Friday morning, but the indoor market is open every morning for all sorts of fresh produce and Breton delicacies such as galettes and crepes.

Château de Keriolet

Set on the heights of Concarneau, this castle was originally built in the 13th century but was redesigned in neo-Gothic style in the 19th century for a Russian Imperial Princess and her count husband. Visit the restored château's furnished rooms, and discover the usual story of the house and its owners.

Concarneau's relationship to the sea

Concarneau has been and still is an important fishing port. Learn about the town's fishing history at the Musée de la Peche which is located in the old town, part on land, part on water. And just along the quay, near the marina, is the Marinarium, with displays all about mraine life, sciences and conservation.
