Plestin les Grèves - a typically Breton town

When you think of a Breton seaside town, the images that come to mind are usually those of a backdrop including a glorious seascape, sandy bays, fishing boats bobbing on the distant waves, moving inland to slate-roofed stone built houses, creperies, seafood restaurants, quaint streets and interesting little shops. Add, perhaps, a little history with an old church or chapel, and even better, a folklore festival involving dancing or Breton music. Take all of this, and you have an image of not just any old Breton town, but the town of Plestin les Grèves, or Plistin as it is known to its friends.

Less is more

Sometimes, when it comes to lovely little French towns and villages, less is more. Plestin les Grèves has just enough amenities to make life easy and enjoyable, with a good handful of shops, restaurants, a supermarket etc... but not so much that its essential character is taken away, spoiled for tourism and the relentless march of consumerism. Long may it stay that way. The supermarket (Super U) sells just about everything you could want anyway, with, perhaps, unsurprisingly, an especially good fish counter.

Plestin les Grèves's markets

The town has a market every Sunday morning, which is a boon if you haven't yet got used to the fact that most shops do not open on Sundays in France! There is another treat in store for those who like markets too, as mid-week sees an evening craft market set up in town, showcasing the talents of local craftsmen and women and offering a great opportunity to purchase original pieces.
