CONCARNEAU is a charming town on the Finistère Coast and has been an important fishing port for hundreds of years. The main attraction is the ‘ville close’, the old stone fortified town that dates back to the 1300’s. Its connected to the mainland by a bridge and here you’ll find a superb collection of timbered and gabled houses surrounded by flowers, all jostling for space in pretty cobbled streets. The hotel overlooks Concarneau’s beautiful bay and from here on your free day explore this town at leisure or perhaps take a walk along the coast to discover sandy beaches, rocky creeks, the fishing port and marina.

Its a joy to explore with something new around every corner!
