Do not pass by Paimpol, a small port city, without stopping there. Famous for its Festival of Sailors’ Songs and Music of the World Seas, this small city is also worth discovering for its small old streets, its beautiful privateer and shipowner residences, its pretty shops and painting galleries!
On leaving Paimpol, the Abbey of Beauport, founded in 1202, bears witness to eight centuries of history. Facing the sea, this historic site will not leave you indifferent. Eh know more
Leaving Paimpol, in the commune of Ploubazlanec, is the tip of Arcouëst and its superb archipelago of reefs, islets and its wonderful island of Bréhat. You discover a magical landscape and from that moment on, you remain under the bewitching charm of this island. With a microclimate in winter, the island is favourable to the flowering of many varieties of flowers, which leads to its being called “the island of flowers”. Agapanthe, mimosas, hydrangeas, muriers, aloes, camelia… line the paths, illuminate the houses and give all its beauty to the island.
Château and park of La Roche-Jagu – Going a little further inland, you will discover the Château de la Roche-Jagu, a fortress built in the 15th century, and its medieval-inspired park.
Pontrieux “petite Venise” du Trégor – Following the Trieux river, you will arrive at Pontrieux, a village with bucolic charm with its 50 washhouses and its small marina.
Le Passeur et le Vapeur du Trieux – Cross the Trieux river and its estuary, classified Natura 2000, on the boat “le passeur du Trieux”, and enjoy a commented walk, from Loguivy-de-la-Mer to Pontrieux: amazing view of the Lézardrieux bridge, lock passage, Château de la Roche-Jagu, Route des phare….
In season, it is possible to combine the Passeur du Trieux and the Steam of Le Trieux, on which you can relive the charms of the trips of yesteryear on board a steam train, pulled by a locomotive classified as a historical monument. It takes you on one of the most bucolic railway lines in France, along the Trieux estuary.
