Day 1

We depart and make our way to Plymouth
for the Brittany Ferries crossing to Roscoff where
we will enjoy overnight on board with cabin only

Day 2

We disembark in Roscoff and make our
way to Brest which has a large naval history and
is home to the National Marine Museum and is a
very impressive port. After some time here we
continue to our hotel for the next 4 nights with
dinner, bed and breakfast.

Day 3

Today is at leisure in Concarneau. You can
either take the land train (extra) or simply
wander along the beach to the beautiful walled
town that sits on a long island in the centre of
the harbour.

Day 4

This morning we make our way to the
seaside resort of Benodet, from where we
embark on a circular river cruise lasting just over
two hours, along the beautiful Odet river, “the
most beautiful river in France”. Our journey will
take us past wooded landscapes, numerous
castles, manor houses and forgotten creeks and
our guided commentary will tell us all about the
attractions along the route. Later we make our
way to Quimper, the cultural heart of Brittany.

Day 5

This morning we will visit the pretty
‘village of artists’, an historic port town
Pont-Aven. Watermills along the banks of the
River Aven provide a scenic backdrop to the town
that is also famous as an artists’ retreat and for
the invention in 1920 of galettes (butter
biscuits). Later we continue on to Quimperlé
where we will explore the picturesque medieval
centre and the Abbey of Sainte-Croix.

Day 6

After a leisurely breakfast and morning
we make our way back to the port for our day
sailing to Plymouth where we are scheduled to
arrive at 21:30. We then make our way back to
the West Country. Please note this will be a late
arrival home.
