Itinerary

Sunday We leave Cornwall in the afternoon and travel to Plymouth where we board our overnight ferry to France. Accommodation on board the ferry is room only in lower berth inside cabins.  

Monday After disembarking the ferry we break for breakfast before travelling to the village of Carnoët. Here we have a guided tour of the impressive Valley of the Saints where sculptors have created dozens of giant granite statues of saints and placed them on a feudal mound with mountain views. Incorporated in the one hundred giant statues is one of our very own St Piran who was handcrafted in Cornish stone and transported across the water. We arrive at our hotel in the afternoon.

Tuesday Today will be free to enjoy the delightful walled city of Concarneau. This town of art and history is absolutely charming and you may wish to take a tour, visit the old stone fortified town or enjoy the bustle of the fishing port.

Wednesday This morning we visit the charming seaside town of Bénodet. Here we enjoy a 2 hour cruise on Brittany’s prettiest river the Odet. After time for lunch we travel to the ancient city of Quimper with its half-timbered houses and magnificent cathedral.

Thursday The quiet port village of Pont Aven is famed for its art culture and pretty riverside setting. Our visit will allow time to enjoy its ancient watermill ruins and museums. Later we move on to Quimperlé, where you will find a combination of a riverside setting, medieval centre and attractive abbey.

Friday We have a more relaxed start to the day. We will leave our hotel late in the morning and make our way to Roscoff where you will have some time free before boarding a late afternoon ferry to Plymouth. We will arrive home to Cornwall late in the evening.
