What’s on in the Brittany over the festive season?
In the run up to Christmas Finistère has lots and lots of attractions to visit including a wealth of Christmas markets with local artisan gifts and produce so if you are visiting before Christmas you can find some wonderful presents for all the family.
During Christmas and New Year the famous town of Locronan has stunning Christmas illuminations and a lovely Christmas market and independent shops. The architecturally beautiful town of Morlaix hosts a vibrant Christmas market right through to the New Year and boast some fabulous bars and restaurants including a fabulous ‘Cave’ selling a local gin, H2B Gin.
Just 40 minutes by car from Saint-Cadou you’ll arrive at the Marché Noel in Brest which is great fun with shopping and fair rides. You can always make a real day of it and visit the very interesting maritime museum, the aquarium at Oceanopolis and enjoy lunch at one of the many excellent restaurants down at the old port.
The Chateau at Trevarez which is just outside the town of Chateau Neuf du Fou has an annual Exposition Noel along a theme and its stunning landscaped gardens are transformed at night with illuminations and projectors which are especially fun for all the family.
Expertly crafted gifts and present ideas can always be found at the annual Artisan Marché Noël in Chateaulin which is hosted every year in a large hall, packed with local artisans and crafts people.
Just 20 minutes from the self-catering cottages at Kergudon lies Landerneau whose Noel illuminations are very pretty and the bridge in the centre of the town houses several crêperies and shops and is always lit up. Landerneau has an excellent gallery and exhibition space at the Fonds Leclerc along with a lovely town centre and town market.
The Marché Noël at Roscoff is stunning with its harbour side location and picturesque Breton architecture. There is a wealth of gorgeous restaurants and shops as well as costal walks which are beautiful in the winter months. Roscoff town centre is an easy 40 minute drive from the gîtes at Kergudon and makes for an excellent day out.
Walks around the Lac Du Drennec and in the forest of Saint-Cadou are just wonderful in the winter. There are also some wonderful walks around St Rivoal and the Menez Mikel as well as Sizun, Morlaix and Roscoff. There are some stunning cliff top walks a short drive away on the Crozon peninsular.
One of our local breweries Coreff make their delicious Coreff Noel for the festive season which is served in many local bars and is absolutely perfect after a long walk through the hills and forests of Saint-Cadou and the Monts d’Arrée. The bar, Ty Coz, in the old market square in Morlaix serves a range of Coreff and other local beers and is an excellent place to soak up some festive atmosphere before or after a walk around the town and the famous viaduct.
